Hi,

I have a simple and currently personal use web app... I would like to deploy it on server and access it via internet.
May I ask what's choices or cheap hosting services out there?

It's hard to say what would be best for your situation.

One possibility is to run the server software on your own computer at home and configure it so that it's accessible via Internet. Disadvantages of that are that you'll have to know exactly how to configure it and there are security risks - if you keep a server running like that there will certainly be hackers who find it and who will try to break in. Also, your ISP may not allow running server software.

There are lots of companies who offer web hosting and / or domain registration. You'll have to find out what's available in your region and what would work best for you. I made a few websites for friends, and here in the Netherlands it's cheap, just a few tens of euros per year. A disadvantage of this is that they often don't allow you full access to the server, you get a web interface with which you can install and setup a limited selection of software.

Another possibility is to use a cloud service, for example Amazon Web Services (or another service). There you can get one or more virtual servers, and you can install and run on them whatever you like.
