I'm with dreamhost.com, one of the more highly regarded hosting services
on the net.  Going from old memory (I've been there 15 years).  I have
the "mega-coder" level plan which is $19.95/yr - strike that. 
Inflation.  $2.59/month.

It's a shared host account.  I can do just about anything legal with
that account.  Unlimited disk space and unlimited bandwidth, limited
only by the compute power of my slice of the server.

I currently have 2 websites and a blog on the host, 4 mailing lists and
about 30 redirected email.  They do backups once a week.  The backup is
available for download if desired.

The neatest features are the one-click installs.  Want a blog? click
that button and in a few minutes WordPress is installed with your choice
of themes and ready to go.  Want a mailing list?  Same thing.  SSL shell
access is provided so one can ad code or whatever as he desires.   One
can install outside packages by compiling the sources.  I'm not sure
about a one click file storage package but if one is not available, one
can shove one over using SFTP, modify it as needed and bring it online.

Tech support is superb.  Never had a problem we didn't get fixed promptly.
