AMD Ryzen OVH Montreal VPS giveaway!

marvelmarvel Member, Provider

Hello all,

Just to let you know on forehand, I asked and this topic was approved by LET staff so no misunderstandings about that please.

I am doing a bit of a Free VPS giveaway however, like always there's a catch so please read on if you'd like to know more.

So I have an OVH AMD Ryzen 3600X OVH Montreal server with 16 IPv4s running idle for a couple of months now. I used to sell VPS from this machine for use as game servers however, all it did attract was Xbox VPN noobs that started to stress test it and who were very high demanding in support and then at the end, when you put hours of your time in them they ask for a refund. Or, someone would use it to host a DDoS as a service on it, or do port scans etc. so that's why I stopped selling them all together. It's just not worth it.

The contract of this server was a year though and is still valid until January 2021. So I will give away 14 or 15 instances on this machine to a few lucky LET users with the catch that it will be deleted somewhere at the beginning of 2021. I think it's January 16th but I will inform you when that time has come. Until then service will be guaranteed and it will not be deleted before that date. I promise you I'm married to this machine until then.

I will 'over-giveaway' it a bit and give you:

  • 2 vCPU (fair share usage), 4 GB RAM, 30 GB NVMe Disk space, 1x IPv4 + /80 IPv6.
  • IP control panel to disable/enable mitigation and configure OVH (game) firewall.
  • Unmetered bw (fair usage).
  • Virtualizor control panel.
  • Very minimalistic best effort support just to keep your service running. If you get 9600 baud speeds, hey it's running.

You can only apply if you follow the rules:

  • No hacking/scanning/stress testing your own server/ddossing/bypass finding etc.
  • No DMCA violations.
  • No VPN servers, not even private.
  • No malware.
  • No spam, but legit email servers are allowed.
  • No IRC.
  • No open DNS resolvers.
  • No porn.
  • No other illegal/semi-legal/questionable stuff.
  • If you have to ask if it's allowed, it's probably not.
  • If you're just going to idle it please don't apply.

Anyone can apply as long as you have 100% legit intentions. So post below what you want to use it for, basically it's first come first serve so be quick! I'll have a look at all the applications later on (probably tomorrow) and PM you with the details if you're one of the lucky ones.

Thank you for applying and let's put this machine to good use!

  • I own a non profit gaming community in France, running mainly Minecraft servers. Your server is in Canada so we can’t use it in our prod but my game masters will be glad to use it as a dev Minecraft env (run server, load plugins and config from prod, tryin different configs ; usually if it’s not intented to use as prod we don’t proceed to load test).

    We are used to work with sponsors and because they help us to stay non profit we take care to never open a support ticket if it’s not a confirmed issue in provider side (I apply the same rule for cheap, serous and friendly providers here I use for my personal stuffs). My experience in IT allows us to find informations on ourself and to understand that our problems are not provider’s problem.

    If it’s a cause / a case you would be glad to help by providing a free VPS for us we will really appreciate it and respect your requirements.

  • I run a small free game hosting service for a game called ClassiCube - it's based on the very old Minecraft classic. A VPS could be useful to provide North American users better performance than what I'm running already (really cheap econoboxes). The servers that run the game are super light (running a measly 40-60MB per instance and use very little load/bandwidth/space).

    You'd be supporting a small community, essentially. I have other sponsors, but I'm always looking for more to help space users out in different locations. :)

    Thanks for the consideration.

    Is inflation really at 0.5%? What a conundrum...

  • I'll use for software development.

    Please count me

  • Awesome , if I can get this free vps giveaway I want to develop my wordpress theme for staging server.

    My Personal Site

  • A few months of VPS givaway? This is good for a Tor relay, to provide some anonymity towards people staying at home.

    Fastmako (aff) - another cheap VPS.

  • I would like one to build a personal website and use virtualizor (I've only used Solus before) and learn other technologies NGINX etc and generally learn and solve my own problems with the new Ubuntu version. Hope you let me have a VPS :)

  • I would like to host my personal blog about wordpress development and digital marketing. Would be happy to get amd ryzen freebie.

    Thanks

  • I'll use it as a plex relay in my vast plex network. Don't worry, I have so many versions of most content that transcoding doesn't happen too often. Besides plex, I might use it to test various docker containers from time to time.

    I like one. Thanks for your generosity.
    It will be software development for the financial market. I am in a covid-19 lockdown, so will put my brains to work. The software needs to run while financial markets are open in Asia and North Ameria, hence a VPS will be required.

    This is my first post after registering, although I was an unregistered viewer for months (I always wanted to join as a reseller with an awesome username and thats y the delay,lol) :) I just started my reseller hosting business with a lot of hope to give the best service possible.Offering just shared hosting for now in phase 1, I am still learning and strengthening my knowledge,preparing my website n planning to officially launch by mid may. It would be a great thing if I could get an opportunity like this to strengthen my knowledge in VPS too alongside my reselling business so that I will be able to move to my own vps and expand my business someday confidently as demand increases and would be able to manage it well. I will also be able to host my wordpress blog / other projects (which I planned to host in a vps like this someday) - purely either tech related / abide all legal rules. I promise to strictly abide by all the rules stated and understand that I should backup everything by first week of Jan 2021 and the data will be deleted after that. I hope you will consider me and will grant me VPS. It would be really a helping hand for me and will save me a lot of bucks in this hard time.
