I mean, it depends on whether or not you need windows or not. Me personally, I wouldn't be caught dead using windows as my server, if you gave me a dedicated server with 64 gigs of RAM, 8 NVIDIA 1080Ti's, 32 terrabytes of storage, an intel i9, but told me I could only use windows with it, I would not accept the offer. What I use is Digital ocean. If you use this link, you can get a $10 credit for free, and it helps me out by giving me some credit as well. Still, I wouldn't recommend it if they were crappy, I really like their service, and they just updated their pricing plans at the turn over of the new year to be more competitive with other services. You get several linux distros to choose from, a bunch of plans to fit your needs, and they don't mess with you, you got full root ccess, SSH keys, though the console access through the site is not accessible, the rest of their control panel is.
The bipeds think this place belongs to them, how cute.
