= Newbie needs direction to setup a VPS with a VPN. =

(This is

*not* a VPN provider recommendation request)

Looks like the country where I live will outlaw VPN privacy. What is the easiest way for a non-technical newb like me to set up my own VPN in USA? I need VPN access to US and would like VPN access to UK.

Can I get a pre-made image that has the server and VPN all bundled together? Can Docker/Kubernetes/container do something like this? Something like a one click install for the whole thing?

Is a US based VPS with VPN an effective way to get around laws and systems that block/compromise commercial VPNs?

Vultr, Digital Ocean and Linode have "one-click" OpenVPN access server. But unless you're really newb (your history suggests otherwise), instead of using those one-click options that only give you free two simultaneous connections (it's the limitation of OpenVPN commercial offering), you're probably better off with getting whatever VPS you like in those countries and run installer scripts like pivpn.io (despite the name, it actually works well on any Debian & Ubuntu VPS), Angristan's WireGuard or OpenVPN script if you use non-Debian based distros, or OutlineVPN (which even allow setting up without going to the terminal if you use Digital Ocean), where you can have as many simultaneous connections as the VPS can support (which, surprisingly is a lot even if you go with the cheapest $5 monthly package).

The Outline VPN installer actually uses Docker, DockOvpn and wg-easy are also available if you want OpenVPN and WireGuard.

Now, whether it can actually get around your country blocking is a coin toss. Maybe your country will ignore self-hosted VPNs because they're simply posturing for the upcoming election, maybe they will require any international server to be registered to avoid the IP being blocked entirely, or even arrest and torture you for daring to get around Dear Leader's mandate.
