I am trying to find a good web host for an ecommerce site. However, I
am having a hard time finding a host that satisfies my requirements.
The main problems I have found with web hosts are that they either

1) Perform backups less frequent than every day
2) My web site is hosted on the same server as the database and email.

Does anyone have good experience with web hosts that hosts the web
site/database/email on the same server? How about performance? Should
I stay away from a web host that keeps everything on the same server?

Can anyone recommend a good Linux/Unix web host?
