User friendly web host provider, preferrably S10?

My wife asked me advice about hosting a website. She would prefer something inexpensive with a user (rather than hacker/webadmin) centered design, a simple control panel to enable forums, ecommerce and other features. She would like to concentrate on content. There are so many choices but we've not yet found one that completely meets her needs. I have a strong bias against hosting on Microsoft's IIS web servers. I want to avoid lock-in, compatibility issues and common exploits.

While researching this I found something curious about adoption of alternative IT solutions. European FTSE 100 companies are more likely to use Microsoft web servers, while U.S. based Fortune 100 companies are more likely to use Sun's webservers. But on the desktop the opposite pattern emerges. European organizations seem much more progressive at considering and deploying non-Microsoft desktops, while U.S. organizations are slow to adopt such technologies. So on one side of the atlantic we're proving that alternatives can work on the desktop and on the other side we're proving that alternatives can work on the server.

Some day such information will be common knowledge on both sides of the ocean. In the meantime, does anyone know of an easy to use web hosting provider, preferrably one which uses Solaris 10?

Hi thanks for the info. We did end up using GoDaddy for the domain name.
