I haven't had much experience with HostMonster, but I can say that
NearlyFreeSpeech.net will run Drupal 6 and 7 very well -- you can also (for
small fees) have them modify the settings for your site -- PHP Memory limit
being the most notable -- you pay only for what you use (I'm paying about
$2.50 per month to host around 15 sites in a Drupal multisite install +
modules + DNS + bandwidth + MySQL)

Dunno if you're interested in switching again, but I would recommend either
NearlyFreeSpeech.net or a VPS (Slicehost is pretty good -- I've worked with
them before and they were basically amazing)
