OVH VPS - realistic price for offered hardware. You can run it 100% all time and there won't be any problems.
Contabo - high CPU overbooking. I did test their VPS and it's same machine as in their 'dedic' offer. Which means, that after splitting it into soooo many VPSes (that dedic has 256 GB RAM = 32 * 8GB VPSes), you will get 'guaranteed' ~0.13 of single core of i9-9900K (0.13 of 1 core of 8 cores), but a lot of people buy it and do not use CPU. So in tests I could get power of around 2 cores of i9-9900K for 5$. If you are unlucky, you will get few other VPSes that use much CPU (as ots) and then your server will be very slow.

Hetzner - only in europe.

For 20 players you must use Free Tier AWS, 1GB RAM and 1 vCPU, 15GB of data transfer free, for 1 year. Then, just create another account and migrate

It's slower than Contabo.
For test server with 10-20 online, I would use Contabo.
For RL map server with 50-100 online, I would use OVH as their resources are closer to 'guaranteed' values, not 'optimistic' (hoping nobody else will use it).

Top 'gaming dedic'. OTS runs mostly on single core of CPU, so you need CPU with fastest single core speed (often high 'GHz' - gaming CPU for desktops).
There are 'game' offers in OVH (USA/europe) and Hetzner (only europe), which have gaming CPUs:
Full Game Server range (https://us.ovhcloud.com/bare-metal/game/prices/) (Ryzen 5600X and better)
https://www.hetzner.com/dedicated-rootserver/matrix-ax (AMD - Ryzen 3700X and better)
https://www.hetzner.com/dedicated-rootserver/matrix-ex (Intel - 8700 and better)

'Eloth' started on i7-4790K 'gaming dedic' years ago in OVH. Now it runs on i9-9900K or even faster CPU.

------------------------------
I did tests of VPSes in few datacenters in 2020. They all run on 2.2-2.4 GHz CPUs - classic datacenter CPUs with 10-32 cores. They are not good for OTS with a lot of players.
