Is this your business or hobby?

VPS's are my hobby. I could run everything I need off of a 1 gig VPS with no problem. I just like to play around with servers and VPSs, so I have a dedicated server that pretty much goes to waste. My job lets me play around on the computer all day. I may go in to the hosting business some day, but not today.

    My hobby :) Hopefully one day I'll start a tiny business offering shared hosting.
    Wish I had the type of money to have servers that go to 'waste' :P

    Hobby. I like writing scripts, using VPN for Hulu, and just playing around in linux. I've run a small shared hosting business since 2007 but that only accounts for 2 of my 10 VPSes!

    Making the switch, been a reseller, want to offer more.

    Thanks! Jeff

  • Currently al my LEB's are hobby, if I'm able to earn something with it I will definitly do it however I'm not buying them to make profit.

    I'm constantly trying out new configurations of various packages on different distros. Openvz provides a perfect platform for doing this productively. Sometimes what I do becomes production without having planned that before, so I have different vps. I also just like supporting other providers. So mostly hobby but sometimes it crosses over.

    Most of mine are used. Some good offers are reserved/idle, though.

    If hobby, why not just virtualbox? :)

    I have to have hosting for a business I own, so I just get a little more than I need so I can play around. Tax deduction too. I have all my stuff that is important in one container, the rest of the server is for messing around with and testing.

    I have a VPS on a different server across the country from my server. If my server goes down I have an exact duplicate I can switch to at a moments notice. All I have to do is switch IP numbers for my nameservers.

  • Then you have 2 containers :)
    Anyway, changing IPs in DNS should not be done manually, there are automatic schemes.

  • Hobby for me. I enjoy toying with my VPS' and messing around with scripts.
