Hi,
is there any reason for you wanting to use a shared host? Just asking..
Maybe you could use a VPS as this is not too expensive these days. Of
course, it would require more work to set things up. But it's not too
hard... (eg using apt-get,webmin,some basic Linux skills using the command
line)
regards,
Dimitri
(I use a VPS at rimuhostig ($20/month), but there are many, many more)
