Operating system OpenBSD with most security has web hosting option

Even America’s Central Intelligence Agency or National Security Agency will not target OpenBSD with the software implants since it is so secure. Just check out the documents from the leak documents you can find online. This is a great operating system if you are a techie or programmer if you need a secure way for technology that trades real money. As a warning, you really need to know your stuff with Linux/UNIX network administration. There is an affordable way to host this. I cannot comment on this company’s service response or security. For the affordability and security of OpenBSD, it might be an interesting option to go with list below:

or learn algo trading https://quantlabs.net/dvd

https://openbsdhosting.com/ <– this does appear professional as response is too slow (e.g. many hours)

https://oriented.net/ <– this is based out of Switzerland but billed annually

I found this one via DuckDuckGo which is US but is more legit than the first one.

Find various OpenBsd experts here https://www.openbsd.org/support.html

I would also choose a hosting company that is not part of the Fives Eye program nor part of the West. This includes USA. I will keep this list updated as I find more options.

Hardening configuration for extra security with FreeBSD

Thanks came in via Twitter so thanks to this person. This person highlights the default security holes that this BSD has. Maybe OpenBSD would be more appropriate since it was build with security in mind.
