Good hosts for ecommerce network?

Hi all,

I'm about to start development on a new ecommerce network where members can set up their own online shops: (not live yet).

Each shop will be a sub-domain of the main site:

Free users will have network ads on their sub-domains and share a percentage of sales. Premium users will share a much smaller percentage of sales, and have the options to map to their own domains and turn off network ads (among a lot of other goodies).

The first question that comes to mind is: what would be the ideal hosting environment for a network with mapped sub-domains?

Thanks for any input! I'm obviously hoping to reap the benefits of members who have successfully set up similar installs :slight_smile:
