How to find web hosting that meets my requirements?

i am running a small project that occasionally requires me to run a php socket script through ssh. it uses a few bytes of bandwidth (just some text) which activates my art installation project.

i tried a simple web hosting plan but that didn't support sockets, so know i am using a 32$ vps plan on namecheap.com just to run a simple php script. i don't really need to host anything else on it. i find it kind of excessive for such a simple thing. is there a place i can run my script for a lower cost? any servers that support php sockets and ssh?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Have a look at http://www.lowendbox.com/ you can find a lot of cheap VPS hosting packages there, often with promotion codes to make the package even cheaper.

You can easily find a VPS for ~ 5$ there, which should be able to run your script but is much cheaper than your current package.

Make sure to buy from a host which has been in business for sometime though, so you don't find your hoster dead in a couple months and to avoid scammers.
