For some of the above listed, check out http://www.hostway.com/

You can get a shell account (you can use ssh or telnet to access it)
with perl, mySQL, virtual domain, and POP3 hosted on Linux/Apache for
less than $15 per month.  I know you get pine, lynx and anonymous FTP
-- there may be more but that is all that I use on that account.

I've used them for over a year now and have been happy with the service.
