PCI Compliant Shared Hosting

I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a host that provides PCI compliant shared hosting plans on Apache servers. I have found less than a handful by searching the web, but I'm hesitant to sign with any of them without a recommendation of some sort. I have a live, active e-commerce site that needs a new host very soon.

Thanks!

Thank you, Ray.

I was looking at shared hosting for the lower cost. However, I've discovered that the cost of fully managed VPS hosting is much lower than I realized. I'm currently on one of Rochen's shared hosting plans, and their managed VPS hosting starts at $150, which is not doable. (Plus, their support is arrogant and often confoundingly difficult to deal with.) But I see that many other hosts have fully managed VPS for under $50/month, which is within my ballpark.

Since having a VPS is affordable and will certainly enable PCI compliance, I think I'll be looking into those now.

Thanks for your answer!

Regards,
Jon
