It depend what is your policy but you can start with Amazon AWS and in some case you will need more resources it will be easily to scale it up.

In addition to Amazon's AWS you may also want to take a look at RedHat's Openshift offering, it also offers a free tier, that may be sufficient for your initial neds, and is even easier to spin up, deploy to and monitor.

As said I would try OpenShift, makes it easy for you to build your own Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) infrastructure, also allowing you to enable others to easily develop and deploy software.

Or you can build your own server LAMP based on Centos, it's free and has everything included. http://www.centos.org/
