Recommended budget dedicated server host for personal stuff/experiments?

Posted by Michael Smith on May 7, 2018


After a few happy years at webfaction, I'm itching for a change. This time I'd like to experiment with hosting my own OpenVZ/LXC/Docker system on top of a dedicated/bare metal server. For now this isn't going to host anything mission critical or sensitive, so if I screw up security it's not really an issue.
Is there a host out there that would provide a cheap (~$10/month) yet decent dedicated server? I'm not looking for anything high performance, but it should be able to run Postgres, nginx, python/node/ruby/whatever, perhaps a wordpress installation or two without glaring speed issues. As you can probably tell I'm really new to this sysadmin business, but I hope that I will learn a thing or two. I don't want to mess with Docker and co, just the experience of setting up single-app linux machines (in the sense that one container would contain an entire app for simplicity, web server, db, storage etc).
My understanding is that I'd get a real server of my own, a linux distro, an ssh root login and perhaps a control panel if I really screw things up, then I'm on my own.

Any help will be apprecited.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

Hey Michael,

All of our hosting is in MS Azure. I cannot speak to other cheaper hosting solutions out there - there are a lot of moving parts including security. Below is a link to the pricing calculator for MS Azure. 

I am sure you will be able to find a shared basic tier near your budget, but the million dollar question is will it meet your needs?

All the best.
