    It depends on what you need to do with your business. Everything depends. Are you going to have a payment gateway on your website? Does it need to be PCI DSS compliant? Do you need to have good e-mail server?
    Your question is like somebody can ask: "What is the best car?".
    I would suggest that you start with something and then take measurements of everything - visitors, your application on web, hardware...everything, and then by those conclusions, you start to see what kind of "structure" (not one device, or server) is the best for you.
    I really wish you all the best in this!

    I have few "droplets" at DigitalOcean and they run just great. They don't offer any kind of control panel, so I have installed VestaCP that is a great alternative to cPanel and it is free and easy to install and to use. The good part of cloud hosting compared to dedicated servers is that you can easily increase/decrease the server size as needed, without having to move the site from one server to another. Good luck!

    I haven't been using neither OVH nor Google Cloud, so I can not tell you about those services. Maybe it is good to see what comments their users have left on various services (Facebook, Youtube, some other forums, etc).
    Making good business on web is not easy task. And it requires lot of time and nerves (and money also).
    I'm using right now Justhost web hosting and I think they have a good support, and good service, but not for some serious business but they are very good for small and medium business that don't require big attention of support on servers. They have a managed support and are willing to help in start of your configuration of your one or more servers. So my suggestion is that you start with them (based on my experience). Later you will see how you are standing and if you want you can change it for something different.

    I would also reccomend to look for one hosting provider, and that is Hetzner (https://www.hetzner.de/). They don't have managed support, and you will need to have somebody as system administrator or Linux expert to give you a help in configuration (easily found on sites like Upwork), and when you look what they offer regarding servers and other things - I would say they are very good point to start with them.

    It's easy to find a good server, but in your case, it makes sense to look for a managed server and before buying to clarify whether they have support for projects with high load. If the server is not well configured for high load, then even the most powerful server does not guarantee reliable operation. OVH offers good options, but they react slowly when problems arise. Clouds like digital ocean and Amazon are reliable, but at high load, they are very expensive.
