Is it cheaper to pay for hosting or spin up a low capacity web server on AWS or Azure?

It’s always been a dream of mine to build my own website and I’ve successfully done so with Wordpress. However, I am now self studying some Backend development, with hopes to develop my career as a computer engineer into cloud infrastructure. But that’s another story... my question is.. is it cheaper to pay a host like TSO host, or is it cheaper to host a website on AWS or Azure with your own web server (currently I get very little traffic in a year)

If it’s cheaper building my own low capacity webserver in the cloud... this would be a fun project for me.
