I am a happy customer of aruba cloud:

When I choosed my OS, only an out of date FreeBSD image was available, but I easily
updated it with freebsd-update. They might have updated it since then.

They have many servers available in Europe, especially in Italy (it's an Italian company).
They also have often some discounts (right count I think they offer many discounts due to
coronavirus). They also offer a 10 euros trial (at least in Italy, not sure in other countries).
