To wander a bit off-topic, DreamHost charges 10.00 USD per month for a
VPS/virtual server. You may be able to do better, if needed.

We use IONOS for VPS. IONOS starts as low as 2.00 USD per month. We
get root access, and we can install whatever software we like. We
needed root to run the latest wiki software on top of Ubuntu's LAMP

Due to wiki software and MySQL, we had to bump to the 5.00 USD per
month plan for 2 GB of RAM. The OOM killer was whacking the MySQL
process and corrupting the wiki database.

I'm not sure how IONOS compares to DreamHost for network bandwidth,
however. We have not (yet?) encountered a problem with throttling.
