I indicated in the statement that I would use VPS, although I later realized that it was impossible to select a VPS with the required specifications, so I decided to build my own node. Although it will be problematic to support SLA 99 +%. In this case, please take into account the low cost of electric power in my region - USD 0.03/kW.

Would be a good fit.

Absolutely agree with you, Trail21.
