Let's start with the fact that not all hosters allow the use of a VPS as a VPN server, these guys definitely do:

VDS.SH
pq.hosting
firstvds.ru
hostiman.ru
skyhost.ru
edgecenter.ru (previously called gcore)
vpshoster.com
hosting.energy

If you use the server only as a VPN server, then you do not need additional control panels like ISP-manager. Don't order them. And don't order too many things.
All of the above - with minimal prices.
Some provide a free trial period of 30 days.

Completely free, on an ongoing basis, I do not know.

It can also be DigitalOcean or linode - from inexpensive hosting.
They also allow VPN installation. You can set up your VPN server in five minutes. Located in Europe.

Many cloud providers offer "free cheese", but often these are demo instances that last for several months, and then turn into paid ones, like AWS Free Tier.
Powerful instances on 4-core 80-core Ampere Altra 80C 3.0 GHz processor with 24 GB of memory are available for free and forever from Oracle Cloud.
Carefully look at the region that you specify during registration. Offer not available in all regions.
They offer 2 provisioned databases, 2 VMs on AMD, 1-4 Ampere A1 instances, 200 GB for blocks, and 10 GB for objects, rare objects, archives.
Traffic: 10 TB per month.
Do not use torrents - if the copyright holder complains, you will simply be denied access.

However, when registering, you still need to enter payment information. The service writes off and returns back 0.99 euros, which should not be reflected in the banking history. And where is the guarantee that this service will not start charging money every month, allegedly for overspending limits on "free" test services?

Is this what you mean?

You cannot view this attachment.

A friend has been registered there for about six months. As they wrote off during registration, that's all.
This is called authorization / reservation of payment and then cancellation of the reservation, this is done in order to be able to reserve many transactions and then write off everything at once (settlement), large companies use this because. the cost of settlement is fixed and the fewer times it is performed, the lower the commission. Oracle in this case does not complete the transaction, but simply cancels the reservation.
To be sure, issue a virtual card in your favorite bank with a limit of 1 euro, or a little more, and after you pass the card verification (withdrawal and refund), set the spending limit to 0 and forget about it :)
Although the trial is a month, but complete completion after 2, a friend received a letter again. But the instance is perfectly recreated from an already existing partition. Recreated and works without overlays.
For VPN in the case of ARM, the performance will be limited by the processor and will be somewhere around 100-200 megabits.

Thanks for the comprehensive answer. I didn't know, to be honest, although I try to monitor the topic.
Let's try.

To health!  :)

More additions and corrections.
1. The card still does not need to be set to "0". They can also withdraw / return the euro, in a month. Let a few euros / dollars remain on the card.
2. By regions. In Frankfurt, there are not always free instances on ARM, you have to watch. In this case, you can look at the Netherlands.
It is impossible to know about this in advance. Roulette. First you choose a region, it is tightly tied to your account, and only then they tell you: well, guy, you're out of luck. Then it will be necessary to wait a couple of days / weeks.

Thank you everyone! Dear friends and colleagues! Tell me how else you can organize your VPN server? What are the options? Is it necessary to use a vps server for this?

As far as I remember, such VPS are provided by vdsina, inferno, and many more of hosting providers.
It is incorrect to compare a VPS with a VPN, since in a VPN you only get access to the service, whereas on your own VPS you can manage both the VPN webserver itself and the logs.

The VPN server rises at once from any hosting provider using VMmanager recipes from ISPsystem. It remains only to create a file .ovpn based on generated certificates and keys.
There is an official and fairly simple client for openvpn (on the website https://openvpn.net/community /) - works everywhere, it is easy to configure, why pritunl is not very clear here.

Many people allow a proxy for telegram, but by and large, why do you need it if you already have a vpn? Most hosting providers are not allowed to distribute access to VPN and proxy without authorization and in unreasonable quantities for many reasons.
Mainly because of potential spam, Trojans, RCN locks and other things.
Double and other VPN chains are hardly necessary for you. At each node, you will lose in speed and the number of communication packet losses. Such VPN is usually used only in cases when they want to hide their presence on the Internet (hаckers, carders, scammers, etc.).
