Small-scale hosting recommendations?

From: Loqi

I'm looking for a server to host several low-traffic Rails 
applications. I want to have several apps, each running under a 
separate domain name. I don't want to have any ads in my pages. I 
want my apps to send and receive e-mail. When any of them start 
getting too much traffic, I can move to something bigger, but for now 
I just want to be able to have something reasonably reliable on the 
Internet, without too much $$ flowing out of my pocket.

What I'd really like is something that's super-cheap in the 
beginning, that can grow to accommodate more traffic as my needs 
grow. I don't mind paying a setup fee, and I can pay more in the 
future when I'm using more resource, but it's hard to get started 
small and grow into some of these Rails hosts that want hundreds of 
dollars per month while I'm sipping network resources.

Any recommendations for a starter spot?
