Hosting for your PHP based websites is easy to find. Almost all web hosts who offer shared web hosting are including Php in their plans, and Php hosting is quite cheap. This is because PHP is free, and you will be better of on a Linux server for your PHP projects. Good PHP web hosting is available for $5/month and upwards.

An important feature in a PHP hosting account is a recent version of PHP. Not necessarily the latest version, since they often come with bugs, but one of the latest versions should be installed. You will probably want access to a database like MySql too since many freely available PHP scripts uses MySql. If your scripts are simple, or you are just starting with PHP, you may be fine without databases for a while.
