I would like to upload my code to a visual sourcesafe server, but I want to avoid paying $500 to run my own server. Is there a $5 / month server that allows you to upload Visual Studio code online somewhere?

SourceAnywhere bills them selves as the "The Hosted Microsoft Visual SourceSafe (VSS) Alternative", but it looks to be more than $5/mo. I've never used them so no comment there. It was listed in this list of hosted source control providers.

Is there a reason you are stuck on VSS? There are plenty of alternative source control systems, for example SubVersion is open source and so completely free (and will run on Windows)

I am not sure of anywhere that will do this for that sort of price - Visual Source Safe is not really designed for a hosted environment and I have never seen anywhere that offers it.

Your best bet will be to get the cheapest Windows VPS you can find and install it yourself, alternatively, take a look at a different source control application such as Git Hub, where you can get privatesource code hosting from $7 a month. (cannot really recommend this over any others, just giving an example)

+1 for GitHub. If he can move away from VSS it's a very good option. – Adam Luchjenbroers Jan 3 '10 at 1:47
