FWIW: For my personal use, I have a shared hosting account w/ DreamHost. I get full SSH etc access; I just don't have root, so I have to install stuff within my own directory if I want to add software, and ask them to do some things for me (like edit Apache config that can't be done in an .htaccess file). It's reasonably cheap, though. DH however is a provider that caters to Ruby on Rails users - for whom SSH is not optional. For users where your site is just a bunch of HTML files etc, not actual code, plain (S)FTP(S) is probably good enough. Personally I'd never use it 'cause it'd feel way to restrictive, but *shrug* - Sai
