Digital Ocean used to be called Droplets and would let you host small scale VPN servers for about 5-15 bucks a month. It looks like you can still do this, However, droplets are completely blank servers and require you to command line install web-application like: apache or nginx. It will also allow you to install mySQL, CPannel, PHPmyAdmin, etc...
When I had one it was extremely frustrating trying to learn and setup but I have no doubt it has completely changed the way I understand back-end. It would probably be better to use something like GoDaddy's Domain + Webserver packages for cheap hosting options. I found that free or near free hosting services are useually really unreliable or sketchy.
