Cheap hosting for testing purposes

Hello, I've a big XF forum, with 6GB database + 550k inodes (file attachments etc). I want to make some tests, and I don't like too much using a local environment like easyPHP etc. So I'm looking for a very cheap hosting, where I can upload a backup of the website and make some tests. I'm concerned about security, so I'd like to know if somebody had the same problem and found a valid option. Many of the hostings I found have inode limits.
Thank you :)

Why not?

I use localhost for multiple installs and all my test and development.
I much prefer it to remote server based test installations.

My PC is not that good, + I can't test with gtmetrix and something like this, + harder to show the progress to clients.
