I am looking to move back to cloud server for my Plexguide setup. Previously played the GCE shell game every month but that got old real quick. So I moved the setup to on prem, however now I am looking for a new server host company that is relatively cheap. My requirements are at least 1 TB of HDD space, FULL root access so I can setup PGBlitz and be around 25.00 a month. Plex will be running but I force Direct Play on all streams. Thank you for any guidance.

Hetzner Server Auction is probably your best bet. I looked and the cheapest they have a 1TB server for is 27 Euro. You can look for servers by visiting, https://www.hetzner.com/sb

Another option is the start level servers from online.net. They have 1TB servers for under 20 euro but they use the c750 processor. I have no idea how well that will run plex. I used them as a seedbox in the past. https://www.online.net/en/dedicated-server#anchor-start

Thanks for the quick reply, is there a country I should stay away from? I thought I read online that the German servers are sluggish when streaming.

When it comes to Hetzner I much prefer the Germany servers. I had the Finland server and had all kinds of speed issues. I know many here on this forum have agreed with me on this.
