AMD Ryzen OVH Montreal VPS giveaway!
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!
