Kahuna Host is really a regular web host offering the WordPress CMS as the default auto-installed web application. (WordPress is used by high-traffic publishers like CBS Local, the LA Times Framework, and New York Observer.) A good effort, but features like 150 other web applications are a needless distraction for end users who just want a fine-tuned service focused on web publishing.
