I share Stephen's enthusiasm for DreamHost. Several Rev users have gotten
RevCGIs to run there. Also, they have a large number of "one-click installs"
of popular web applications that are just wonderful. You can get an
unlimited number of domains per account for very little.

One caveat is that some web apps have security sensitive parts deactivated.
Its possible to compile and upload your own version of PHP (for example) and
get around this in some cases.
