[thelist] Hosting for Dummies

I realise that this has been asked over and over and over again. However, a 
search of the archives isn't showing me anything useful, and I think what 
I'm looking for may be a little unusual. What I'm looking for is a hosting 
site I can recommend to people who ask The Question: "So, you're a 
webmaster. I want to make myself a website, where can I host it?"

What I want: Someplace reliable where people can fill in a form with a 
domain name and a few other parameters, pay by credit card, and get back an 
SCP username and password, active within a few days at most (I'll likely 
end up using this myself too, if it's good). As foolproof as possible, so 
that I can point anyone up to and including my aged relatives and their 
dogs at it. PHP, CF and, ideally, shell access would all be nice benefits, 
since I have no doubt I'll be asked to "improve" these sites in times to come.

Any recommendations? Off-list, should you prefer, and I'm perfectly willing 
to listen to someone who can say "We don't do that yet, but I can have it 
for you soon".
