I'm assuming that the cost of the domain reg is a given.  Don't see any 
getting around that.

I use phpwebhosting.com  $10/mo.  Credit card billed monthly or pay six 
months up front by check.

All the email addresses you want, with POP and SMTP (if your ISP lets it 
through).  SSH/SCP access.  Web mail admin (adding accts and aliases).  And, 
of course, PHP.

I've had no problems.  Everything seems to be "unlimited, but don't be 
greedy." which can be nice, but then can bite you too.  Don't plan on serving 
up tons of MP3s.  They start paying attention if you use >5GB/mo.

Good Luck,
