Hi, just wondering if any of the actual providers have VPS for IRC?

mail port can be blocked.

Used to have 256ram with 32ips or 64 for vhost ( ipv4) ( 15 years ago )

I have some customer asking.

i know those will not be at LET price, but just wanted to know.

thanks!

    "Manage"? You want a managed VPS for... IRC?

    15 years ago there wasn't nearly as much IPv6 deployment, today every major IRC network supports it. You can have tons of "vhosts" without paying for IPv4.

  • No managed

    Yeah, but i am asking ipv4

    Here's a trick for you:

    Deploy the cheapest OVH Public Cloud on hourly basis then order 32 failover IPs for this instance. After this deploy the smallest Sandbox instance or any other you'd like then migrate failover IPs to this Sandbox. Delete first instance. Now you have 32 IPs on your $3 sandbox on which you can control the Anti-DDoS Pro and add firewall rules. Perfect for IRC.

    IRC. That's like discord for people who can read, right?

    Uh! OVH and IRC are no friends, he will get suspended by the next flood.

    Suspended by who ? I use OVH in BHS since start of 2014 with IRC and never encountered problems. I got my loads of DDoS attack as well and they where always mitigated properly with no suspension whatsoever...

    I wonder how many networks have active blocks on OVH/Vultr/et al..

  • FranciscoFrancisco Top Provider

    I'm wondering why you aren't just using IPV6 for this.

    Pretty much every IRC network out there includes V6 access and you won't have the concern over IP costs going up, especially at OVH.

    Considering how many people have an OVH/DO/Vultr server for their personal use, I'd say very few block them outright. I think Rizon and Freenode at least don't block any of those by default, as I've accessed both via all three of those providers at some point.

    Yeah most do have v6 now, could be he wants v4 for client compatibility, as in the people using it may not have v6.

    Will shill for Pop-Tarts(must be strawberry flavour).

    Have a single v4 everyone bounces through and then they set their host to a v6.

    Are you saying that providers are lazy to roll out IPv6 in Mexico?

    We were talking about IRC network support for ipv6, not enduser. Unless you mean some sort of Mexican IRC network.

    Yeah I was thinking about it but wasn't sure what software he might be using and whether it would support this.

    ZNC does the job just fine.

    i dont know if lazy will be the correct word, but yes.

    We didn't have native IPv6 until last year. We're only a couple in-the-back-of-the-truck-behind-the-boxes rides apart, though.

  • I live in the United States and I have Hybrid Fiber Coax with 500 down and 50 up Still no Ipv6.

  • WSSWSS Member

    "fiber coax" sounds Geigeresque. Got pics?
