Inexpensive hosting

I am learning how to write an application and would like to test it in a real environment. This mean enlisting the services of a hosting provider.

Basically I just need access to MS SQL server and with a few megabytes of space and a bit of bandwidth to play with.

Can anybody suggest a reliable hosting service that can provide this for a few bucks a month? (Preferably Canadian, simply because of accounting logistics with sales taxes and so forth...)

I did a search on google and it turns up a multitude of cheap hosting providers, but obviously I'm much more willing to trust any recommendations you all may have.

I had started to look for an ASP.NET hosting service, and found this one, but I haven't tried it (or any others) yet:
The price is (US)$10 per month.

I found this service from this listing: at the "Microsoft" site.

is what you're looking for.

Thursday, February 26, 2004 is what I'm using. $9.95 a month plus $20 setup fee. ASP.NET, SQL Server, and a bunch of disk space.

However, if you're just experimenting, I'd suggest starting with Brinkster; they're free for small stuff.
