I use and highly recommend NearlyFreeSpeech.NET for hosting. 

Dirt cheap, great service, and technically they are serious geeks. How many other web hosters give you emacs and CLISP (among others) in your SSH environment? Plus, they've fully embraced the Open Source Ideology, which I support enthusiastically.
