Hi, I am looking to build my experience managing a LAMP webserver and doing web development on Linux. To do this, I want to setup a webserver online and build a role playing website for some friends.
What hosting service should I use?
I want to host the full linux server, not just my web app. I'm also a worried about security - if I setup a server and it gets hacked, I don't want to end up paying thousands of dollars for the resources stolen by the hackers. I'm not sure exactly what I'm trying to ask, but if you have any advice, I'm all ears!
