I have been using DigitalOcean since they first launched, I love it so much I made a product https://snapshooter.io to help you back up your Droplets and Volumes.
Its a super simple and cheap way to get a server and can scale to what ever you need. There are great tools out there that integrate straight in, due to there great API.
Highly recommended product!

- The hack I used on my photo portfolio is to use Github Pages. This lets you create static websites hosted for free if you're fine having your code open to the world. You'd need to be a bit tech savvy in order to make it work though. If you're willing to code a little bit, then pair this to Jekyll and you have an auto-generated website :)
