I have been on Linode for about 6 years and am very happy. I pay for the second level box which is $20/month (this used to be the entry level). The speeds are fast and I have had very few issues over 6 years (hardware died that my host stat on once and it was moved and back up within an hour).

Year over year I have gotten upgrades to the box as well. It started out with 16 gig disk / 128 MB ram / 100 Gig Transfer and now it is all the way up to 	48gig disk, 2 CPU Cores, 3TB Transfer, 2 Gigs of Ram. They now have a $10 package which is basically half of that.

I was using openvirtuals but have switched to Linode about 8 months ago.  

Openvirtuals has a better pricing option for what you get than Linode but  
found the actual bandwidth speeds to get to the box to be very slow, not  
good for hosting sites :)

I use and like Atlantic.net.  

I host most of my domains on a $1/month server. But that doesn't look like  
an option on their list anymore.  

I also have a $5/month "extra small" server I use for stuff I'm playing with  
at the moment https://www.atlantic.net/cloud-hosting/pricing/
