I can second Gregg's opinion about DreamHost. I've been running a couple of domains with them for a bit over a year and I'm quite happy with their service.

The only downside I can think of for your case is that DreamHost doesn't support Java so you're down to implementing your web applications in PHP or Ruby on Rails (or good ol' CGI scripts...).

Anyway, if you decide to sign up, do consider using some promotion code. I'm running the community website for Agile Finland with DreamHost and there's a promotion code listed in the footer, which gives you a $50 discount and contributes slightly less to the hosting bills of agilefinland.com.

Thank you so much Gregg and Lasse. I will use the promo code in Agile Finland if I finally decide to use DreamHost. Here is a list of hosting providers that I am consdiering now.

Java Pipe - http://www.javapipe.com/web/java_hosting.html- I saw the ad in JavaRanch. It seems good if I want Tomcat. But in that case, I have to find out open source java blog, forum, wiki softwares to install in it.
Dream Host - http://www.dreamhost.com/hosting.html - $15.95/month - I got good feedback on it from you
Host Monster - http://www.hostmonster.com/hosting-features.htm - Good cPanel/help center
Lunar Pages - http://www.lunarpages.com/solutions.php - has JSP/Servlets/Resin support

Anything to add in this list, specially for java/tomcat hosting?

Java hosting is no more expensive. Even without their discounts www.jvmhost.com seems to be the cheapest Java provider on the market

I also have different websites and I am using IX web hosting. Previously I used a free web hosting provider and I was not satisfied with them. So I decided to go for a paid web host and finally I have chosen IX web hosting. All I can say is that I definitely do not regret that I have chosen them. This is the best web hosting provider for me personally.
