Hourly payment for VPS server?
I need a monster server for scraping (or many weaker servers). The deal here is that I have to launch >100 chromium instances (browsers) controlled by puppeteer for a couple of minutes whenever my script requests scraping. I saw on the pricing that all servers have “$HR” column. Does it mean that I can configure the server in the way that I get charged only for the time of scraping? For example, server cost $1200.00 per month and $1.78571 per hour, and I use it for 3 hours in one month, does it mean that I only pay $5.35713? And if it is possible, do I have to reconfigure and upload my scripts to the server every time I want to use it? Thank you beforehand!
