@Gina I like https://uberspace.de as a shared host. They've got a pay-what-you-want with a minimum of 1€/mo business modell to enable even people or projects that are short on money to have a web presence. You get SSH access and a quite good wiki.
Support is excellent and they really try to make everything that's reasonable (e.g. doesn't need root, docker or similar) on a shared host possible.
And of course they're running on renewable energy.
