Dedicated Servers for VPN Service
We're working on launching a VPN service within 3 months. It's almost completed, but we still need to make sure are ducks are in a row. (read: make sure there are no security issues, legal issues, financial issues, etc)
I would love to have 4 VPN servers on launch.
Singapore -> ReadyServer.sg
Netherlands -> WorldStream
Switzerland -> M247
Chicago, IL (USA) -> Tzulo
M247 and Micfo offer servers in a lot of locations for <$150 that fits our specifications. The are problems with this though:
-> We'd prefer to support small businesses.
-> We want diversity regarding ISPs hosting our servers.
If any providers on LET would be interested in hosting a VPN server, here are our minimum specifications:
-> CPU with AES-NI, >2000 Single Thread Score Passmark score (cpubenchmark.net score)
-> 100TB bandwidth on 1Gb/s line that can be upgraded to unmetered later on
-> Decent network
-> Reliability. >99.9% uptime.
-> Less than 150 USD a month
-> Willingness to forward abuse to us. Every notification of abuse or abuse complaint will be responded to within 24 hours. While we do not advocate, support, or participate in piracy, it is bound to happen when you run a VPN service. (read: automated DMCA complaints may get sent)
-> We won't immediately buy dedicated servers. We have to do our homework about any ISP making offers in order to make sure it is a good decision. Additionally, we need to
-> We will pay via PayPal.
-> It doesn't matter if it is SSD or HDD. 64GB is the minimum size.
-> Once the service is launched, and is bringing in money, that is when we will start buying more dedicated servers.
TL;DR: This thread is to hopefully get offers from providers, and give us plenty of time to evaluate the ISPs.
