I still remember those days when i started using internet and i was still trying to figure out how to use a free blogger.com blog. I was amazed by the idea that i could have my very own website that is actually visible on internet !
The world has changed so much in past ten years(and the blogger is still there). Now,the people have so much more flexibility. Instead of having a shared hosting (and thousands of them on the same server) you can have a Virtual Private Server (VPS) of your own , at nearly same cost as of a shared hosting.
As an example, i used to have a shared hosting account with bluehost a couple of years ago that cost me almost $5/month ($50/Year , 2 months free) and now i have a VPS (2 GB RAM,50 GB space and 1000 GB Bandwidth)with End Of Reality for $15/quarter.
VPS hosting is certainly the new trend out there and thus many new as well as established companies out there are luring the customers with free and low cost trial offers. I have already made a post regarding some free VPS providers.These are certainly limited in number and come less often.
Then there are trial offers on vps.These may cost you something like $1 for 1 month of service,but the beauty is that you get to try any of their plans and decide the one that suits you best.Hey you can even try their best VPS ($ 100-500 value) just for $1
Here are some $1/month VPS trial Offers-
