It seems OK, but as you say, it lacks SSH, which I don't think I could live
without. The other downer is that if you did want SSH, they would charge you
a setup fee. With the amount of hosts available currently, there is
absolutely no need to go to anyone that charges a setup fee.

There was someone (sorry - crap woth names) at a recent meeting who works
for the Positive Intenet co. He maybe able to deal for you.

If you go to www.dotdragnet.com/forums (a spin off from the .net magazine
forums - without the politics) and post a question in the hosting & domains
area, stating what you want/need, then you will be inundated with offers of
hosting. The guys there are trustworthy (generally), and very helpful. I
have been a member since 2000, and have arranged hosting through people
there (albeit M$ hosting).

Let me know how you fair.
