Cheapest VPS

I was looking for some VPS solutions for personal use and I found this one . Has anyone of EH members used this one ?

Re: Cheapest VPS

I <3 ARP Networks: http://www.arpnetworks.com/

I'm not sure if they're the "cheapest," but they're extremely affordable and the service is fantastic.

Re: Cheapest VPS

Thanks Dynamik, that's a bit cheaper than Linode which is what I currently use. I may have to check it out.

I recently setup key-based SSH authentication to the management server, so I could then VNC to my VM console and change the boot order, install a new OS, troubleshoot subsequent boot and partitioning problems because I don't really know what I'm doing, etc. *sexy*

The reason I originally got it was because I used to travel a lot, and I wanted to tunnel all my traffic out of hotels, airports, etc. (ssh -D ROCKS). I've recently put a new OS on it and am going to take a shot administering a web server (currently setting up my FreeBSD jails). I also like having full-control of a system out on the internet. It's useful for storing files I want to be accessible anywhere, seeing who's trying to access and how, etc. You can do some of those things with shared hosting or a system at home, but it's just an ideal blend of reliability, accessibility, and management for me.

I've been looking at linode. I'm probably still going to go with it, but I'll be looking at dynamik's link one more time before I order.

I'll be using mine for a couple of things. A box I can SSH to, to play on IRC regardless of where I'm at. Something I can also play with Perl and Python. It's also going to run the website from my Martial Arts school via CMS (Drupal), and my personal website and blog (also via Drupal).

Re: Cheapest VPS

I primarily use mine for security testing activities. My connection at work used for security testing is CDMA and I can tunnel through the VPS which allows me to hide my traffic from Verizon for filtering purposes. It's also where I host some of the phish sites as well as anything else I need to do with a server out on the internet. I'm currently running an Ubuntu Linode with several of the BT packages loaded. It's been handy having access to another IP as well when I get too impatient and wind up getting my primary IP shunned. You may want to avoid the Atlanta datacenter when you setup your Linode as thats the only one that filters any traffic. For instance, default IRC ports are filtered.

Thanks for the head's up about Atlanta. One of my buddies here in MI uses it. He said he'd give me a referal code to use too. I'll ask him what data cetner he uses, since he uses his to host his email, website, and irc client.

Basically for IRC I don't want a server, I want a box that is running irssi on screen or byubo that I can leave in the channels and attach to from around the world.

Actually, I'll probably be setting up email too.
