Low-Cost Cloud Provider Favorites

WARNING: Only use these providers if you can afford to lose your money if they abruptly go out of business or operation. Some have! If you use them, always set up a redundant server with another provider in another location. Incredible Backup is your friend. OpenVZ platform unless KVM noted. Never sign up with these providers for more than a year. Always fund these services using a mechanism such as PayPal which provides a six-month window for refunds if things ever come unglued. With PayPal, you also can (and should) disable recurring payments which seems to be a favorite trick of low-cost providers. You’ve been warned!

NOTE: The KVM/OVZ7 platform providers below are from better established companies (some cost more) and should provide an improved long-term solution. They also provide better security for publicly-exposed servers like OpenSIPS, IncrediblePBX-PUBLIC, and 3CX.
