I can recommend http://www.spenix.com (been hosting with them ever since 
I got my domain name). Matt is a great guy ... quick prompt responses, 
and nothing bad to report. They have a had a few freak accidents (like a 
fire) -- but I never noticed any downtime. I've had a few support 
requests (install a PERL module, and something about spamassasin), and 
they took care of both promptly. The packages have changed a bit since I 
first signed up with them, but their service is great.  .htaccess is 
allowed, and they use cpanel (which is easy to use). Here are their 
version numbers :

Apache : 1.3.29
PERL   : 5.8.0
MySQL  : 4.0.15-standard
PHP    : 4.3.4

You can also try posting a request with your requirement at places like 
WHT ( http://www.webhostingtalk.com ) but you'll have to take the 
responses with a grain of salt.

Best of luck
