Well, sure. But you're pretty much at providers' mercy whenever you use
VPS. Even dedicated servers can be easily compromised.

And OK, I should have recommended encrypting local traffic with
WireGuard or whatever.

Alternatively, you could use a dedicated server, and run your own VPS.
Or you could use a KVM VPS that can run VMs. It's sluggish, but it works.
