Webhosting for ~$20 and not shared/has decent uptime? Cloud/VPS? What are my options and what services are competitive and have a good cost?

I'm on dreamhost but the past few months have really sucked with them in terms of downtime. I'm trying to have something more "professional" for all my activities and downtime like this isn't acceptable.
Currently I'm hosting a wordpress blog and a Comic CMS there (and a pmwiki on my own personal domain, separate from the 'commercial/pro' site)...
What sort of price is probably a decent price for a solid uptime? Is VPS what I'm ultimately looking for (I can't be spending hundreds a month on this stuff)?
I like dreamhost's "easy installs" (even if it means I sacrifice some flexibility) -- are there any other hosts that have such features (especially for, say, e-commerce)?
I saw asmallorange recommended on an AskMe but they look like they're just going to be comparable to dreamhost.
Could I just switch to the VPS hosting on dreamhost and have more confidence/uptime? Or will I still have issues and just need to jump the ship?
