Dreamhost

dreamhost.com - Is an almost full service web hosting provider. Their core competency is shared hosting but they do offer a dedicated hosting arrangement, but prevent you from having root access to your "dedicated" server.

They offer what they call a "private server" which offers some dedicated resources but is not quite a VPS.

I use Dreamhost for this site (and a couple others) plus because they offer tremendous data storage limits, my Dreamhost account serves as an offsite backup of my personal files.
