Since you bring up hosting your own, if you can go with Cloud9 I suggest it. After coming from Verizon DSL, I was blown away by their help. I currently have my own PHP/mySQL box running outta the old appartment. Certainly not for production use. Their techies will work with you. I was one of the first to receive their new dsl modem and had problems cause I think both their modem and my router where both trying to do NAT. They totally hooked me up. They walked me through disabling the NAT on their modem and everything was great. They don't block port 80. They really don't seem to care what you do with yer line.

Anyway. If you don't have the budget for (php/mysql/10Mb @$7.95) then I'm assuming you don't have the budget for DSL.
