Cheap webhosting?

I have two sites with JaguarPC at about $12 a month (each) for 17 Gigs of storage, adequate bandwith, good support, blah blah blah.

I've been with them for a long time, so I've just dealt with their rate. It would be cheaper if I paid for the year but I can't really swing that.

So I'm looking for a cheaper month to month option. These are just personal sites with family stuff on them. So I just need some hosting recommendations for good, reliable service on the cheap.

I've never used them, but I've heard more than a few people rave about http://www.bluehost.com. Another budget option is http://www.your-site.com, but you get what you pay for with them.

I always recommend Dreamhost. I've been with them for about 2-3 years and I've never had a problem. It comes with more disc space and bandwidth than you'll ever use. I've easily burned through over 1TB of bandwidth in a single month without any hiccups.

They have a bunch of one-click installs like Wordpress and phpBB. And their customer service has gotten so much better in the past year or two.

You can get a plan for about $11 a month or $119 a year. The monthly plan requires a $50 set-up fee (no set-up fee for yearly plans). You can use the coupon code "50DOLLARSDH" for $50 Off (works on both monthly and yearly plans).

Also, if you get started with the yearly plan, you can switch to the monthly plan at the end of the year and there's no set-up fees.

I use Pair Inc. Only $5.95 per month for FTP access only. I've used Pair for only 4 or 5 months, but I have no complaints.
