    ExoticVM - Find VPS in Exotic Locations

    About ExoticVM

    📃 ExoticVM is actually inspired from ExoticVPS (by Mr.X) which has been down from few months and was not up-to-date. So this website was created just to list all hosts offering VPS in exotic locations.
    The previous site & data was lost due to a catastrophe on our server (hint: lazy sysadmin) and now we are re-writing everything. Stay tuned for updates.
    〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️

    Why was the site created?

    I saw many users here making threads like "Looking for VPS in ABCD country" so perhaps ExoticVM.com might help. Although I had the plan to make a VPS location list website way back in 2013 but wasn't really motivated to do it.
    〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️

    How to list your company?

    It's easy, just head over to the submit page & send in your data. We'll review & verify the details. Once all the necessary checks have been performed, the provider will be added on site.
    〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️
    Please reply with suggestions, errors, etc. 🙏🏻
    Also, please note that I am trying to keep the website (& the data) to be as simple as possible and not to turn it into another comparison website. The approach is very simple, you want a VPS in Cambodia, where to find it? 🔍
    Head over to ExoticVM and get the list of providers who offer it. Go to their website and compare it yourself. I might add a genuine user review for each provider later on but for time being, let's keep it simple.

    If you are not a provider but still want to list one which you know, then send us an ✉️ email (found on the contact page) and we'll happily add it 😉

      A practical website was born, thank you for sharing!
      Add a price list to compare will be better.

      Useless without prices.

      The old ExoticVPS had prices and specs to at least give you a general idea of whether you can afford one (or get one to try, or just for fun) or it's too expensive to be worth it:

      Thanks. Will think about it.

      Not quite useless rather it would be left to the visitor to figure that out.

      I had the prices displayed in the previous version but it made everything too complex. It does help in deciding which is the "cheapest" provider for a location but there isn't much competition in the exotic locations where pricing can be even considered as a vital factor.

      Also, it would be unfair to compare the prices of the providers of a particular location unless everything is normalized. Just my view on keeping things simple.

      Thanks for your views & opinions, really appreciate it.

      You are asking too much. The only thing (lowend) people can figure out is how to screw themselves.

      If you can't make your point within 5 lines of words, you have an optimization issue.

      I never thought of it in that way, yeah it does give the user insight about what he would expect. So perhaps a "starting price" would suffice for all the locations. Thanks!

      This is why I love LET <3

      Signed up to tsukaeru because listed on your site they have Indonesia VPS. Ordered one and got Japan VPS. Rep said for other DC we need to order from their subsidiary (Cloudmatika for Indonesia) which has different pricing.
      Anyway currently they have 50% discount till end of May.
      For 450JPY (~4USD) you got 2 core, 1gb, and 50gb ssd KVM in Japan with decent speed. Prepare your ID for verification.

      When a VPS place considered exotic? Do you have standard for it?

      @omelas said:

      Not exactly any standard per se but the locations which has providers in abundance is not considered as exotic (Example: US, UK, France, Germany, Netherlands, Singapore, etc.)

      📢 Updates:

      • Dark/Light mode has been added
      • Twitter handle has been created & added ExoticVM
      • A total of 150 offers in exotic locations are live on the website.

      Do-able, I'll try to implement but will have to first record the basic prices of all the ~160 hosts, put it in excel, calculate the median, set the high & low point from there :pensive:

      I'll do it in June perhaps.

      Ah, well, I am unaware of any other hosts providing VPS in Mexico.

      Which host is <$30 ?

    • sinsin Member

      For Hungary, there's rackforest.com and serverastra.com, just some suggestions as I didn't see them on the list and I currently use them both and have been happy with them :).

      These guys seem pretty cheap, but my sixth sense is tingling with them. Then again, they accept paypal, so what's the worst that can happen?

      I like my uptime down low and my servers all hacked. Can see me droppin' twenty-fours with a router in the rack.
      Ya like ya Switch-Ports hot and ya servers all hacked. If ya pings real high and ya networks pitch black.

      It does seem to be a bit too good to be true kind of deal since Mexico isn't cheap + their order button is a direct Paypal link. Hence I am reluctant to add them.

      Need to dig around more for a Mexican provider.

      Oh! I'll update it then. I re-checked their website and nowhere have they mentioned about the upgrade.

      Since two members are confirming this, I'll pretty much update it.
