I guess you are correct. The price will be equivalent to less than $9.99 
a month. I think VHCS or ISPConfig will serve me good.

 From their sites, both are only available for Linux based systems. 
Anyway, I will setup VHCS in a Debian box.

Once again, thanks alot for your input and suggestions.

Thanking you...
