Well  then, IMHO, considering all of your selections above and that you
don't want changes to the application that you might be comfortable with, I
think you best option would be to:

1.  Buy a domain name
2.  Host it at your house
3.  Build your own solution

I am sure that would be the absolute ideal solution for anyone, given they
had the time.  It provides all the controls that you would want to implement
along with no "bizarro service agreements" to worry about.

Plus, you could install your own web-based interface that you could access
