I need a decent linux server for personal use. Personal user = host a data base on the server (so that I don't have to create it both on my laptop and school computer), host some toy websites, and generally have a backup computer in the cloud.

I see AWS Lightsail and Gougle Compute Engine seem to be the thing I am looking for. Are there any better alternatives?


I haven't tried it, but Microsoft Azure is also a competitor in this field, and they do offer Linux hosting. (If you want to host Windows, the license is included on Azure servers.)
