cheap hosting server?

I'm currently paying $13.95 quarterly for a subdomain, 35 megs space and 500 megs/month, which ain't much, so I went ahead and registered a domain w/ namecheap.com.. but I'm looking for a decent host. I don't need much space and bandwith or fancy features as I'll just be uploading personal junk, but I'd like something reliable. A quick search on the forums landed a couple sites, like e-rice.net ($15/year 150megs 3 gigs/month), which is what I'm leaning towards so far. Any other good hosts?

I've been using hasweb.com to host my photography. I have 500mb with 10Gb b/w for about $50 per year. The uptime has been pretty good too.

I've been happy with www.8-95.com
This is the budget division of dixiesys, who is also highly recommended. They had deals going on before, so it cost me $16 for a year with 300MB and 3GB/month. But with there current pricing they're a little more expensive.

With e-rice.net, I've heard only good things so I guess you can't go wrong either way.

I've used Dixiesys for a couple years now. It's a bit slow, but I got in when their special was "next to nothing" so I still use it.

I also use Dathorn. It's a little pricey, but it's noticeably faster and has better uptime.

Basically, you get what you pay for.

$8.95/mo or less, 200MB, no transfer limits, competent and fast support, fast response times.

There are better deals, but I am 100% satisfied with them.
