Hi there,

Don't be fooled into thinking a "server" is a special thing you have
to buy from a hardware vendor. A 10,000ft view would be that a
"server" is a purpose built computer, usually higher power than a
typical desktop machine.

You can build any old computer and start spinning up virtual machines
on it, running your favourite operating systems, you don't have to buy
a "server" per se.

Another option to consider is something cloud based.

Just my two pence, good luck!
