A virtual machine can work for various purposes.

If you mean a VPS, I suggest DigitalOcean, they start at £4 a month and you get 20GB disc space and 512 MB of RAM, sufficient enough for a small website.
If you mean virtualisation software, check out the free VirtualBox offering, or VMWare Player if you don't like Oracle - which is understandable (or want something better with a few less features).

Does Oracle have any "corporate ideology" problems? It's common these days, so I just assume that's what you mean. Hehe

Yes: when they still owned OpenOffice they were literally only allowing contributions from Fortune 500 companies. They also have Oracle Linux, a rebranded RHEL with one major aspect which they won't let anyone reuse. Plus they left MySQL in the ditch to an extent to promote their main DB software. Hence why we have LibreOffice and MariaDB today.
