Cheapest way to host a trivial elixir docker container with TLS?

I’m looking to host a trivial elixir (webhook) app (using docker) can anyone suggest the cheapest way to host a trivial elixir docker container with TLS ?

If you are really interested in the cheapest way, then you can’t beat free. Heroku and Gigalixir both offer free plans. No Docker, though.

If paying $5/month isn’t too much for you, then I’d set up a droplet with Digital Ocean, use docker-machine to get it 100% ready for docker, and deploy using docker-compose.

The TLS termination is the most important thing - willing to pay $15 p/m.

Heroku and Gigalixir offer TLS for free. And it’s quite easy to set it up for yourself on DigitalOcean using certbot and Let’s Encrypt

Depending on the nature of your app, look into google cloud run

It will run based on a docker container you provide, manage your tls endpoint, handle scaling and only charge for the seconds it is running. At least that’s the idea.

Dokku with DigitalOcean or Vultr or one of those providers. Dokku makes setting up Lets Encrypt trivial and can deploy your docker via Dockerfile or image.

Does heroku have free docker available in “beta”? I used it on a few projects and it worked very well. It might be out of beta now.
