Looking for a web host for development work.
My current web host no longer meets my needs, they were purchased and I'm not fond of some new policies. I require:
* CentOS v6 (64) or CentOS v7. - this is important, my target is Red Hat Enterprise of the same versions.
* Root access
* FTP (terminal, not "control panel")
* I will be installing a LAMP stack with some custom configurations, I will be installing my own RPMs - I don't need any software resources from the host other than the OS installed on the server.
I develop web-based applications for aerospace. Naturally, I do so on my own server at home, but of course clients need to see them in action.
I also my store and serve my extensive collection of funny cat pictures from this box.
It can be a dedicated server or shared, but I'm not interested in "cloud", although really I don't care how they spin it up at their end as long as it "looks" like a stand-alone CentOS install at my end.. It will be used for development testing so bandwidth is not much of an issue.
I would prefer a help desk that can engage in intelligent troubleshooting, though I don't expect to need it, I just don't want to be treated like a total idiot.
Naturally, I want a good price...
Your recommendations would be much appreciated.

What's your budget like?
Also any location preference?
