What hosting option is best?

I will be hosting five family members and one buseiness UniFi access points that are all in different locations. What hosting service would you suggest I use to update and control them remotely?

 

Thank you for looking.

You can try your luck on the AWS Free Tier https://aws.amazon.com/free/ and i wish you better luck than i had

 

I got locked out of my account there twice and that was enough for me to defect to Digital Ocean, where ive been happy for a year now, they do not do an endless free tier like AWS, but they do do a $100 credit/60 day free trial account...note ive never tried this i just fronted up and paid them $5 p/m from the start, and weeks later they upgraded all the goodies on their accounts, so a bit of a win all around after bloody AWS and what they call support. Plus DO is waaaaay easier to set up

 

Digital ocean $100/60 day trial details here: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/is-there-free-trial-available

 

I run 3 locations on the $5 tier and have had zero downtime, even during DO hardware upgrades, in a year...solid as...

 

There is also Google Cloud but again, its harder to setup than DO: https://cloud.google.com/free/

Hello @happy2bhere,

 

I recommend looking into AWS, DO or OVH.

You can use my installation scripts to install the UniFi Network Controller.
