I am using http://slicehost.com for my company's site
http://mendotasoft.comand I've had no issues.  Their prices are
reasonable and the staff is very
available at any time (IRC, their own chat system).  The admin interface is
also really simple and usable.  I love it, though I'll probably need to
upgrade in the future.
