A friend reccommended me to this site, and from what I've seen, the community is very responsive.
Lately I've been doing much research on which hosting companies to use for a (right now) two domain site. One for home/personal use, and the other for a small business.
I need space, but not a ridiculous amount (over 4gb, but I don't see us using over 10gb anytime soon).
Language support I'd like to see PHP4 and 5 (or just 5), PERL, CGI, ASP and (not needed, but definitely a plus) Ruby/Ruby on Rails.
Bandwidth shouldn't be too much of an issue, but best bang for the buck is always looked highly upon.
Lastly, budget. I'd cap it at $300 a year, but preferably keep it under $150-200.
Thanks for your help
EDIT: Servers preferably out of NY/MA area
Well you've already limited yourself pretty well, but you do have a good budget. Just one thing to note, based on your requirements you should be looking at a Windows server (as thats the only thing that truly supports ASP/ASP.NET).
I doubt you'll need $300.00/year to start with, but yes, go with a host that offers Windows hosting. Shouldn't be to hard to find here. About the only other thing it looks like you'll need to decide is what control panel you'd prefer.

Well I'd like ASP.NET to practice on, develop tools, CM sites, anything and everything. It's more of a practice tool for right now instead of us needing it to work properly.
If you're just testing / experimenting, why not set up your own server in house (or if your using XP Pro, install IIS 5.1)?? I would think most hosting providers would frown on using their shared servers for testing/debugging. Having an errant script chewing up all the resources probably won't make you very popular with your neighbors either, and will likely get you suspended.
I'll agree with MrRadic, if ASP.NET is on you're list, then Windows is really your only choice. I've not seen anything you mentioned that won't run on a Windows Server, providing the host allows it.
