Any suggestions on a cheap webhost, virtual server??

Hi all.

I'd like a cheap virtual server somewhere to play about with, but don't wanna pay over the odds for it. I need MySQL database(s) , Perl, php and cgi-bin at minimum. IO don't need *loads* of space or bandwidth though.

I was looking at sniffhost.net but don't want to pay with PayPal.

Thanks,
Ducky :-)

Stora? do you mean me? lol

You used to be able to get $97 off codes for dreamhost, but they stopped them about a month ago so the max you can get now is $50 (or maybe $47, I forget). So $69 is about the lowest you can get it now not $47 as I said, I got mixed up.

I have a discount code but it's my personal one, meaning I get something in return if someone uses it so I can't post it, but if you google for one then millions will come up
