I think VPS is the easiest, although VPS at DigitalOcean Droplet requires some setup.

Currently, that I loved most in Google Cloud Run, which is a fully-managed stateless Docker platform, with automatic SSL certificate. Also, not expensive.

AWS betrayed me many times, with unprepared costs. I have closed two AWS accounts already. But, if I carefully calculate the costs, it seems to be the cheapest.

Azure looks promising, but it is not as generous as Google Cloud Platform (free credits expired in 2-3 months vs 1 year), so I sticked with GCP.


I like IBM's cloud.

The documentation is a bit better, the interface is less confusing, and the free tier is actually free.


Digital Ocean. Simple to use and pretty much no learning curve if you know how to use Linux command line.


I always take a DIY approach using vultr/upcloud/scaleaway/hetzner etc. and never touch AWS/azure etc. due to it costing too much in the longrun.
