Have you taken a look at the Professional level shared account with Liquid Web?

That seemed to have all I needed and then some.

Oh and for the record I ended up getting a VPS solution that I have to
maintain myself. But maintaining it is actually pretty easy now. I
went through a host of VPS Linux OSs. Having issues both large and
small with most all of them. I landed with Centos which I have had
fewer issues with and have actually been surprised that all of those
were very small (mostly me having to stop trying to make it do it the
WAY I WANTED DANG IT and accept the general style it used which wasn't
really all that bad except the files just ended up in places I am not
use to and I had to learn a few new command line things...)
