However, you might want to stay away from 1and1 hosting though. Their support totally sucks. I'd try hostgator.com or jaguarpc.com - they are small and you get instant support.

Now, for the more humble of us there's Dreamhost. It comes with every single feature I've ever needed in a website, and most of the other ones available for a very reasonable price (say if you need SSL or something similar). The accounts are unlimited transfer and unlimited space for about $9 a month. Cheaper if you buy a few years at a time.
Oh, for the record, I've used Servage. I'm actually with them now. The only reason I'm still with them is I'm paid up until mid-April. But at the beginning of April I'm switching to Dreamhost because though Servage have done right by me on a few occasions I've had a number of security issues with them and recently, even after years of faithful service, I've had a run-in with them over a $15 late payment on my hosting. I came close to losing my domain name because of it and that was the final straw.
If you decide to go with dreamhost please put doug [a t] dougstewartdesign [d o t] com as your referral and we both get a delightful bonus. (I've got a referral account with them even though I don't yet host with them.)
Oh, depending on what the site is for, if you're a tax-free non-profit they'll host your site for free as well as give you loads of extras. It's actually rather impressive how they treat non-profits... Their attitude in this respect is what originally won me over to them. I now put all my clients through them and have yet to have a single complaint.
