Off-topic, we used to use GoDaddy for VPS for our free/open source software
project. It was a crummy service offering one virtual core, 1 GB of RAM and
no swap file. The VPS ran on a circa-2005 4-core Athlon machine.

The server had constant problems because the OOM killer would whack our
MySQL process. We needed it for a Mediawiki installation . The machine
could not handle the LAMP stack.

And GoDaddy would send us nastygrams threatening to stop service because of
bots. When the spam bots tried to create a new page the wiki server pegged
at about 100% cpu for a moment while that new editor was spun-up.

We now use Ionos (https://www.ionos.com/hosting/web-hosting). The cheapest
plan is $1/month. We splurge a bit and pay $5 for the extra core and extra
memory. No more OOM problems, and no more nastygrams.
