What type of service am I looking for?

I have no experience with web hosting and through my limited research I thought I needed a VPS. But after fiddling around with one for a bit and through a comment on one of my other posts I think a VPS might not actually be best for me but I don’t know what other service to use.

I am looking to host several websites, a web game, a discord bot, and a minecraft server. Preferably all in the same place. I have experience with making all of those things that I need, I just don’t know anything about web hosting and internet stuff. To be more specific I have made and hosted mincraft servers and discord bots and hosted them on my local computer, as well as made websites and hosted them locally on XAMPP.

To get more detailed about my experience, I have just finished my second year in a 4 year double degree where Computer Science is one of those degrees. So I’m reasonably competent at using computers and programming. I am also fine with working via the terminal rather than having any sort of GUI. I have however had basically no experience with internet based stuff and have no knowledge of web hosting or servers.

* **What is your monthly budget?**
* I’d like it to be under $10 AUD ($6.73 USD) per month and the max I would be willing to pay is $20 AUD (about 13 USD) per month.
* **Where are you/your users located?**
* I live in Australia and would expect most of my users to be Australian. But I do also expect to have some foreign traffic.
* I am not expecting lots of traffic though, so like if there’s a really good reason or its a lot cheaper, I would consider getting a something hosted in another country. And if you do recommend a something hosted in another country, I think Australia gets the fastest connection in the American west coast vs the east coast or Europe.
* **What kind of site are you hosting (WordPress, phpBB, custom software, etc) or what is your use case?**
* The websites I’m planning on making from scratch myself using HTML, CSS, Javascript and maybe some Javascript libraries. If I need a database I’ll probably use mariaDB unless my research reveals a better alternative.
* **Do you have a monthly traffic volume? Estimates are ok.**
* I wouldn’t expect more than maybe 10 per month for the websites, no more than 5 concurrent players for the minecraft server.
* The discord bot will only be on one server, probably only handling less than 10 requests per month.
* The web game probably won’t have more than 10 players per month.
* And if anything (minecraft server, web game, etc) does get incredibly popular I can just upgrade or find something new but right now I only need stuff to deal with low traffic.
