Trying to cut down on my server bills. Does anyone know of a good #Nextcloud host that's cheap, reliable, and offers a decent amount of extensions?

Nextcloud's own service picker just kind of recommends a bunch of random providers with no real insight on what they offer, or how good they are.

@sean why not go for a cheap vps and install Nextcloud instead of looking for a nextcloud provider?

@boilingsteam @sean I self-host it on HCoop.net . It's a bit sluggish but works for me and doesn't cost me anything in addition to the membership that I already have for web site hosting and such.

@boilingsteam literally everyone recommends doing this. The thing is, I already have a dedicated Linode that I'd like to retire, so that I don't have to spend the 60 bucks a month on it.

I'd rather pay 5 bucks instead.
@sean This might be of service to you

or with ssd storage

I've been with them for over a year and host all kinds of stuff Nextcloud included.

My only issue is that uploading to them is slow but i think that's related to my ISP somehow. And it's only noticeable doing big uploads(So like the initial). Downloads are fast.


@boilingsteam

@sean vps don't cost 60 bucks per month. I have several and one of them is at 15 dollars a year.

@mgrondin @sean that one has 2 vcpus, 1.5 or 2 GB of RAM if I remember correctly, and sufficient amount of traffic up and down for a Nextcloud usage.

@boilingsteam That's interesting i suppose. Did not realize a VPS could be had so cheap. 20GB would not go far as a Nextcloud(I've got over 100GB in mine) but still that could be nice for a blog or gopher or something like that.


@sean

@mgrondin @sean That's a base plan you can add extra storage if needed on that kind of vps.

@suetanvil
For anyone interested in nextcloud hosting I've never found anything close to this pricing, plus you have full admin rights to add family/friends and enable any apps, plus only office or collaboration included. 35 euros a year for 50gb!!:) openitstore.com/nextcloud-host

@boilingsteam @sean

@sean @boilingsteam And hmm...what kind of VPS you have for 60 bucks a month. We bought the most powerful from our provider for around 40 Euros and we host a ton of services - see trom.tf/ . It's a 10 vCPU Cores 60 GB RAM 1.6 TB SSD 1 Gbit/s Port.... We have hundreds of users already, if not close to 1k, and so far the server is barely used.
