Good server/hosting providers I know

Posted on Jan 24, 2023


  • OVH High quality vps with reasonable prices
  • Noez German server provider for cheap vServers (with pretty cheap extra IPv4 addresses)
  • Contabo Another german vServer provider with cheap storage servers
  • Signaltransmitter Very cheap vps and even cheaper ipv6 only servers
  • Privacy focused vServers in iceland

Root/KVM Servers

  • OVH Affordable bare metal servers + storage. Decent for ETH Nodes
  • Netcup S-Tier kvm server provider. Good prices for decent hardware/uplink
  • Hetzner Has tons of cheap dedicated servers. Hetzner also provides a cloud service + API
  • Affordable bare metal in Sofia (Bulgaria)


  • Netlify Amazing free tier plan for static websites
  • Vercel Free plan is okay. Would not recommend using them as backend for most projects

I am honestly not the biggest fan of many serverless cloud providers and running your backend on them. Some downsides I have experienced:

  • Vendor lock-in everywhere
  • Only advantage they provide is ‘on the edge’ hosting/cdn services & management features
  • Overpriced af. You are paying a lot for fancy UI and CI/CD. Both netlify and vercel are just reselling aws lambda as backend at the end of the day

// TODO: Add more providers when i remember them & add affiliate links
// TODO: Do a more serious post where i talk/rant about vercel/next.js
