Can someone recommend me a good web hosting with a reasonable price/quality ratio that is not AWS / Digital Ocean? Much appreciated

    How about heroku? Ive only used the free tier, but had no problems beside configuring my project to work properly.

    @RageOverflow heroku is too expensive, go with scaleway/DO and learn along the way how to not get scammed by hosting offers and run your own server, something as simple as a LAMP stack is done in like 5 minutes:

    https://digitalocean.com/community/...

    DO has also more tutorials that are applicable to any other server too.

    @RageOverflow oh I forgot, actually both scaleway and DO even offer a pre-installed image for LAMP, so no need to install it yourself even, just read the docs of that image.

    @JoshBent Thanks for the advice. I am not new to web hosting / web dev though. I've been using DO/AWS for a long time. I also asked for something other than AWS/DO :)
    I just grew a bit tired of the same services and was curious what other people here might recommend. A LAMP stack is trivial and won't serve my needs. Still thanks though @JoshBent

    EDIT: I meant that I am not interested in a LAMP stack not that it has limited possibilities or smth

    @RageOverflow well you didn't specify anything besides wanting hosting, but yeah if you just want to burn some cash for some funny new stuff, check out heroku.

    Static? GitHub pages
    Dynamic? Google App Engine, but only if the app supports it. Otherwise Heroku

    GoDaddy hosting 😤

    (yes this is a joke, had to use it once and it was so bad)

    I personally really like DO. Simple UI and the company seems like a nice place to work. Plus they support open source projects.

    I guess Azure or Google Cloud would be on the table, since everyone else has mentioned heroku. Azure has nicely competitive prices to AWS ($3/month for my own server which was hosted to support a phishing exercise), and they have many of the same features that AWS has, and imo their API is documented a bit more intuitively.

    Google Cloud i wouldnt recommend because... Google... But hey up to you. Other option is to buy your own computer so you dont have to pay for resources beyond the physical ones themselves.
