Server Hosting for my Online Multiplayer Game

So I made an online multiplayer game with a server-client connection and I was wondering where I can host it for free (without any credit-card info or anything,) since I’d like to play with some friends, and I don’t want to do the port forwarding route, and we don’t have the chance to do a LAN party that often.

Another thing is I was wondering how I could allow each user to host their own “server” and display those in an in-game server browser (kind of like how it is in Among Us where each user can create their own game.)

Thanks in advance!

You can checkout Amazon AWS. They have a free tier. I don’t know if you need a credit card or not but, if you don’t need much in the way of server power, this is a great way to go.

It requires a credit card, I think. I’ve tried to use it before.

OCI (Oracle) will give you a free-forever server with 4 arm cores, 24gbs of ram and 240gb of storage.
