If you wanna host your database on the cloud server, you can have both the option as Database as a Service (Pre-installed and managed database) or Infrastructure as a Service (If you want to have root access and manually want to install the database). See More
Ramnode is a very cheap VPS provider. With its cheapest plan being only $15/yr for 128MB of RAM. Which is not much but for a small website not expecting a lot of traffic is pretty good. Plus, not many other VPS providers offer this kind of option. There is CPanel shared hosting for $4/mo and a $10 VPS will get you twice the resources as most competitors. See More

DigitalOcean has a control panel that's intuitive and easy to use, new servers (Droplets) can be spun up in under a minute and they offer stock "apps" (LAMP, RoR, Wordpress) that can be deployed instantly. There's also an extensive documentation for people new to VPS. See More
When Digital Ocean detects what they think may be a DoS attack, they will cut traffic to the droplet to avoid performance drops to neighbors etc. This means if your droplet comes under attack, or appears to be under attack, it will be disconnected from the network, effectively down. See More
Getting started with Heroku is very easy. It's a very straightforward procedure and a beginner can set up their first app in two minutes. Often it's just a matter of a couple of git commands and it's all set up and running. The official Heroku docmentation also helps a lot. See More
While starting with Heroku is fast and easy, and the first few deployments are actually very fast, larger applications tend to have slower deployments. It takes some time for the dynos to restart and while they are restarting the application is completely offline. Which means that you can lose precious seconds of application time. See More
Heroku has a vast list of plugins and services that can be added to an instance. These plugins cover things from databases to email systems. This remove the task of having to install services and setting them up manually. Heroku does it all for you. See More
If you mess things up in your Linode instance, for example with the filesystem or boot configuration, Linode allows you to run a recovery ISO so you can try and fix things yourself without relying on Linode's support team. See More
Linode allows you to create memory partitions and copy or move them around. Furthermore, it even lets you reboot your instance with smaller RAM in order to simulate how your application would act if your Linode instance gets downgraded. See More
Google App Engine is very easy to use. All you need to do is install the SDK (which in itself is easy as well, and the documentation is very heplful) and run the command needed depending on the type of project to deploy it. For example, to deploy a golang application, you run golang deploy inside the project folder and it will be automatically deployed. See More
