Good linux hosting

Can anyone reccomend some good linux hosting solutions? I'm looking for unlimited bandwidth mainly. Right now I pay 7$ per month for 2gigs of bandwidth and 200mb of space. Looking for a better option on the bandwidth. Thanks =)

Check out

I think they have some virtual hosting solutions starting at like 34 bucks a month, with 2 IP's included and 75GB of bandwidth to start off with.. a little more than what your paying now, but with more bandwidth, etc, its going to cost more. But you can add so much more, domains and such to your one account.

I'm using 1and1 Linux hosting for my website -- see link in sig line below. They have a click-and-drool control panel written in Java, but you can ssh in too if so inclined. I've been very happy with them thus far.

I pay $4.95 a month for 10gb's bandwidth, 200mb's storage, and every other web site option under the sun. I have been very happy with their service over the last 2 years. Hosted on a 2.4.18 kernel I think... Check it out here:
I have the silver package. Gold is $8.95 for 15gb's/400mb's.

Why not just make your own server and buy the domain name. It's going to be waaaayyy cheaper that way. You can manage things the way you want it (if you dont pay your own electricity bills and have a very fast connection) .

Well that requires a static IP, or one of the many ingenious though unreliable workarounds. I would have to pay $100 a month for a static IP as opposed to the $30 I pay now. Since I use my domain for my primary email address, and am sending resumes and corresponding with potential employers I need absolute reliablility right now. I guess for someone that didn't need to rely on thier site being up 99.9% of the time, a workaround to the DHCP dilema would be just fine.
