You can get cheap dedicated servers (physical, not virtual!) at 
kimsufi.com (OVH' cheapest lineup). The cheapest ones tend to be in 
short supply but if you're patient enough to refresh the page early in 
the day you can usually get one of the 5€/month ones.

No opinion on their VPS/cloud offerings, I don't see the point in that 
if physical hardware is that cheap.

I personally have two of those, one of the cheapest, and one that is 
currently not available anymore with 8GB of memory and a 2TB disk. I run 
Arch Linux on them, same as my laptop.
