Lunarpages has been great so far as a host.
The basic shared hosting plan is 7.95/mo for 5 gigs of disk and 400 gigs of transfer, and all the bells and whistles. You can also use your own custom php.ini and .htaccess files that overide the system-wide settings.
There were some DOS attacks in December and early January that caused some of their network to briefly bog down, but overall their performance has been great and the support is quick and helpful.
FYI - my journal is Extra Muros: Utah Journal of Critical International Law at the University of Utah, in case you want to watch for our first issue in May or thereabouts.
