There are few VPS services for $1/month, but if you pay slightly more, like 2-3 USD/month, or have patience to wait for a campaign, or are prepared to pay two years upfront, you will get a high quality vps service, and can expect the same uptime as the major cloud services. If you can afford another 1-3 dollars per month, get an additional VPS on another network, and set up round robin DNS for load balancing. Which for 2-6 USD per month gives you almost close to 100% uptime. And 1-2 TB monthly bandwidth. 1-2 vCPU cores and 256 MB memory is more then enough to handle a static web site.
