Can anyone recommend a cheap but decent server host where I don't need to worry about my own hardware? I'm not doing anything serious with it, just syncthing/nextcloud stuff, git and/or svn and maybe a low-traffic mail server at some point. When I say "decent" I mean good uptime and lots of freedom to do largely what I want. I don't need heaps of speed or massive storage. Like maybe 100GB max. Also, not complete arseholes.

Thanks all. I've decided to try Hetzner because they're cheap and if it all turns out to be a big mistake or a waste of time, then I've lost very little money.

@adz Linode is working for me. Hetzner has been recommended to me.

I switched from DigitalOcean because they lied about why they didn’t offer me a job and I. Hold. Grudges.

@adz I'm using for and I like what they offer. It has almost none of the bells and whistles that DO or Linode offer but all I want (and maybe what you want) is a VPS to do my thing. Bonus: it all runs on renewable energy.

@adz DigitalOcean is still my first choice for small stuff. But I've heard good things about Herztner
