The cheapest one.

You don’t need much. You could easily get by with the cheapest one. Remember, it’s pretty easy to upgrade if you need more down the line.

However, Ubuntu does recommend a minimum 2GB RAM for optimal performance if you’re using the 64-bit version of the OS. If you follow that recommendation, you’d need at least the $20/month plan.
