Online tree storage

I use GRAMPS for my tree. I removed my online trees for various reasons. However a recent contact brings me back to "how can I share my tree with relevant family researchers?"

Ancestry edited my tree, moving ancestors from London to Missouri - I was worried for other researchers who would be mis-led.
WT - the idea was OK at first, but it's turned a fun hobby into "see me after school"!
My contact uses Tribalpages - I'd forgotten about them! Their reviews aren't the best.
My website has bits, but not my entire tree.
FMP and FamilySearch - I use both extensively for research, but not sure about tree storage.

So where's the best place to store some / part of my tree so others can see it? I'd rather stick to one site, so I can remember what I've got online and where it is. I'm torn between invite-only or see-all. I also want it to be easy to upload and edit - possibly a complete GEDCOM upload, overwriting the entire tree each time? And easy to delete entire tree if I'm not happy with the site.

Tribalpages is quite good, as long as you use the paid model. I discovered afterwards that quite a few BDM events were missing; apparently with the free version you can only have so many baptisms/burials.
Ancestry you have to have the entire names of places, and it has to be recognised by their algorithms, otherwise default US places are put in.
I use Rootsmagic for a complete tree with all my notes attached, and have more basic trees on Ancestry and Geneanet.
