I think Digital Ocean is pretty good, especially if you’re a developer just rent these server to test, but it can also be your dedicated server for website hosting and so on.

Hi there,
You may have heard about Microarchitectural Data Sampling (MDS) vulnerability – also referred to as ZombieLoad – a significant security vulnerability that affects cloud providers, including DigitalOcean. Left unmitigated, this vulnerability could allow sophisticated attackers to gain access to sensitive data, secrets, and credentials that could allow for privilege escalation and unauthorized access to user data.
Since learning of the vulnerability, our engineering team has been rapidly rolling out mitigations across our fleet. We also recommend taking steps to ensure your Droplet is up to date and secure. This is especially important if you are running multi-tenant applications or untrusted code inside your Droplet.
We’ll continue to keep you updated via our blog, but if there are any steps that you need to take – we’ll reach out directly via email with instructions.
If you have any questions about this vulnerability, you can read Intel’s initial statement.
