They run Apache. If you don't mind that (don't see why), F2S is an excellent choice

any more?

KangaRooCommented: but f2s is better, or at least faster. I don't expect you'll get any better bargains then F2S, PHP, MySQL, POP/IMAP no banners or popups and lot's of space and speed.

For testing I prefer running Apache and PHP locally, no messing around with FTP to upload files, fast and you can check the logs when your scripts don't do what you'd expect. If you follow the installation guides and out the stuff in the default locations they are quit easy to install.
