Absolute cheapest and worst specs possible (doesn't even have to have %99 uptime) VPS?
Hello everyone. Sorry for the lengthy post. The next paragraph can be considered TLDR.
I am looking for the absolute worst specs possible (while still actually not crashing from out of resources) which actually means im looking for the absolute cheapest possible vps ever. Only thing that probably matters is the bandwidth. See, the reason why I can't go with GCP even though it is literally free is because free 1 GB/month is scary low (and it even excludes certain locations).
Even if I choose standart instead of premium, in case of a spike by (currently) imaginary evil people, I would have to either pay a lot, contact support for a one time help and then never ever touch GCP again in my life or risk losing my Google account (they can easily find out who I am and my other accounts).
I am aware of the 300$ credit but it is only for 3 months iirc (another reason I don't want to go with GCP before I am really experienced enough.)
So, I am unexperienced and I can't afford dollars the same way people from economically good countries can. I found some offers for 12 months for less than a dollar or some offers where 1 year vps was 10$ or something but I think I am okay with even lower specs for even less $ (not sure if that even exists, even with little bit of more specs provided, they tend to charge exponentially more so it would be much more viable for them profit-wise so... yeah maybe what I'm looking for doesn't even exist)
Yes, amazon exists for 12 months but they do give free credits too, I don't want that either. I only want those free credits when I know I can make use of them.
Currently, since I am a student, I may be eligible for azure students offer which gives me a VPS right? For 4 years even. Yeah, hard to beat. Looks like my best option.
But I still want to make sure, is that also my ONLY option as in, no dirt cheap VPS exists (or maybe even free - there are many services who provide PaaS like stuff for free so I'm curious why no one provides FREE plan for any VPS.)
I don't plan to deploy the heaviest thing either, just a little proxy server for reviving an app.
I tried non-vps solutions but they tend to just not work (like I deployed to render and proxy server doesn't work as intended) and other paas websites all had some kinda issue.
I know oracle, oracle explicitly disallows proxy servers.
