I use Google Compute Engine. They offer an f1-micro with every gmail 
account which is 512M RAM and 1 vcpu. You have to put in your credit 
card - but you might have it in already if you use the Play Store. I use 
Ubuntu Minimal with Wordpress and Cloudflare to cache images. 
Occasionally it goes over the monthly limit but I've never paid more 
than £0.12 per month.
