So I am going to develop a very simple license system and I need a place to host a Web API and a small database where I will be storing users, no more than 500 users.
I wanted to do this for free but I don’t know what my options are. I know Azure allows a VPS for free for 750 hours, but I don’t know if those 750 hours start counting when I activate the service or when a call is made to a database on it.
Either way.. What are some free / super cheap alternatives?
I have a Free tier AWS account but I’m not sure how I would host a Web API & and database on there.
