Relational databases

Heroku is a platform as a service (PaaS) that enables developers to build, run, and operate applications entirely in the cloud. You can have a PostgreSQL database for free as long as you are ok being limited to 10,000 rows. That isn't too bad if all you want is to play around. Of course, Heroku does more than the database, it is a full platform as a service, so you can host your app here too if you wish. I think you can get a bit of free Redis as well, so if you are interested in exploring that, this could be a one-stop-shop. And they have been around a while so you can probably rely on that continuing.
