Very cheap vps (less than 5$/year)
I'm looking for a VPS to host a static website.
Right now the website uses literally <2KB, and I doubt any vps storage limit will every apply to my needs. I get a couple human hits per day (plus the usual vuln scanners), and if i get slashdotted it's ok for the site to go down, so I don't think I care about resources either. I don't need any kind of uptime guarantee whatsoever.
If it's in West Europe it's better but it's not a requirement at all.
I found lots of offers around this price, but they have a shared ipv4 address. Do these providers generally use a reverse proxy to route http requests to your 80 port, or do I have to use another port?
If I can't find anything for this price I think I'm going to get the cheapest 25$ POS xeon I find on ebay and learn a bit more about virtualization, networking and all that kind of stuff.
