How do you locate a solid host offering dedicated IP, php, mysql, ssi, at $25.00 a month or less, I can only seem to find bad ones or expensive ones.

this site faqts.com also seems to provide PHP hosting service. 
Hopefully, their service is fine too.

I recommend http://www.globalweb.com.ru/
They are free but requires a $20 registration fee to prevent multiple 
registrations. They offer 150 MB web space, 1 GB monthly transfer, 
PHP/mySQL, cgi/perl, domain hosting, unlimited pop3 emails. 
Jason Ross replies:
I heartily recommend Linux Web Host at http://www.linuxwebhost.com
For $8.00 a month you can get 50 megs of web space, 50 pop3 emails, a
php driven MySQL database, ssh access, REAL cgi-bin, pgp encryption,
all hosted on a linux server, _and_ they are on the Global Center
backbone (the same host used by redhat.com, mp3.com, yahoo.com, etc...)

You can also take a look at the sources I have added for lists of hosts
using php and stuff. I myself would recommend Pair (http://pair.com).
I am not exactly sure of what you search for costs, since they have
different pricing for different solutions. Their webmaster account
(which I use) costs USD 28,- a month.
Their service is excellent, and I have never had to complain. Those
webmasters I know which uses Pair has also given high praises of them,
which convinced me when I selected Pair.

I use http://www.jumpline.com. Their standard plan is USD 15/month
including mysql, php, ftp, etc. Service responses have always been
very quick.

Rather than a particular host recommendation, I am going to suggest two
Web sites you can use in the future to gauge the well-loved Web
companies at that current time.  Try both of these:
In the case of webhostingtalk.com, you will want to click into
their "Web
Hosting Forum" or "Dedicated Hosting Forum" if you are high-end.  In
case of sitepointforums.com, you should try scrolling down to the "Web
Hosting and Domain Names" forum, and clicking it.  These forums will
allow you to read what other people currently are saying about hosting
companies, good and bad.
