I've used hosting24 for many years now, with very little problems I much add, and continue to both use them myself and recommend them to others. I cannot quite pin down the main reason why I seem to get on with them so well, although nothing not a bad thing, I just like how simple they have main things overall I guess. After playing around with the joys of CSS to doing what it's told, the last thing you want is to play around with update files.
I only ever use the the service through a FTP client really, although the cPanel interface is nothing to run away from. I'll stop going on now, but I do strongly recommend hosting24, it's simple and does the job you want it to with all the advanced feature that you would most likely be after.
Thanks again guys, looking forward to using you for many years to come!
