Cool hosting...good for my monet

I might get a lot of responses from this post, but I really need the info, I want to register with a good hosting company.

all i want is:

at least 100MB of space
FTP access
CGI/Perl
Secure Server
Email accounts
ftp.myname.com account
and any extras would be an added bonus.

What are the good companies out there that would host me for relatively cheap? I would go and search myself, but I dont know the reliability of these companies out there, so any experience shared, would be greatly appreciated..

Thank you so much..

Cool

Getting what you want for that price should not be too hard; gettign a good host, well that's always hard.

I would recommend www.dreamhost.com which offers the following for your price range:
Full telnet access
50Mb storage space (soon to double)
30 day money-back guarantee and no minimum contract.
FULL CGI capabilities (including PHP3!).
FTP Access
Pop Accounts
And more...

Check out http://www.dreamhost.com/p-codewarrior.html for more information. Should you signup, please say that the user 'scuba' reffered you (thanks).

Another great host is futurequest.com, check them out too!
