especially the entry for the Tech Co-op: Services Co-operative
    We offer Lisp hosting and other hosting services on a not-for-profit
    basis. Prices are determined by server use, and can be as low as
    $17.50 CAD monthly for a Lisp package on our virtual hosting platform.
    Your choice of lisp implementation, web server, mod_lisp or Pound.

Another option:

    They offer VPS services that start at $15 a month. The VM is set
    up within a couple of minutes after the order. I've been running
    Hunchentoot on top of SBCL for two days and haven't encountered
    any problems. (another vote for Tektonic, been using them for years,
    very good XEN setup)

Don't assume that. (See above.)
