It's not entirely clear what scale you're looking at here. For a reasonably small setup ie the equivalent of an ISP with cgi you could try hiway (who appear to have been taken over by verio)
They give telnet access and allow perl scripts as far as I know. I'm a little less certain about whether they give you php, asp, cold fusion or the likes though. Pay would be by credit card in the region of 150 quid p.a.
The lads are right though, if you don't know perl *and* cgi well, you should really consider php or cold fusion or something as it's both simpler and doesn't allow quite so many insecurities to open up.
A Co-Lo setup is perhaps more than you need.
