I was with another provider and requested php bz2 to be installed, but they told me that I should get a VPS and should pay at least $25/month. Of course this was way too much for the start up site I am building. Then I decided to look for another host and thanks to all these reviews I found Host-ed. For 5.99 a month plan I got the php module installed and now I can continue working on my project. Other pros are that they also offer support over chat and are quick to reply to emails. I am yet to gain further experience with them, but so far it turned out to be great.
