    Looking for Provider Similar to DigitalOcean that allows Primecoin/Protoshare Mining

    Hi,

    Would like to know what other VPS Provider allows Primecoin or Protoshares Mining. Actually my Primecoin mining is hosted at tortois.es so now im looking for a provider that allows Protoshares mining.

    Specifications:

    4 vCPu
    2 GB RAM
    around 10-20GB Storage (Only the mining software will be installed anyway)
    1 IP
    Maybe 1 TB Traffic is enough

    Usage: 75% of System resources

    Miner will be using 3 vCPU and 1.5GB RAM as I have already tested this configuration is more effective than using 100% of system resources. It seems that Protoshares miner works effectively as long as you have free RAM.

    Please indicate price if you allow this kind of setup. Thank you.

    • Oh I forgot to add that perhaps a provider that accepts Bitcoin Payment would be nice too

    • 75.00/core we would do it.

      I think you will be better off getting a bulk order of dedicated servers with E3-12XX v3. Let the host know you don't need a lot of bandwidth and HDD space.

      You can also get some powerful dual E5-2670 spot instances from AWS for $0.27/hr.

      Would this specs be in the $10 to $15 / month range or more?

      First of all, you don't need 1TB traffic. Most mining software uses 100MB/month at most.

      If you are lucky, you can get a dedicated server with E3-1200s at around $70. If you can order bulk, I think the provider might give you a discount as well. That's 12 cores you can use at 100%. Adjust it to your plan, it will be $23.3 dollar per 4 CPUs.

      For the AWS set up. $0.27/h gets you 32 cores at 100% usage. Your plan would cost $24.3 per month for 4 CPUs.

      One thing to consider, E3 and E5 CPUs are very powerful. Some VPSes use older CPU like Xeon L5XXX series (Which is fine for most other purposes). Although, i don't think you turn a profit ATM.

    • @ricdem99 - Delimiter has E3/E5/L5639 and takes Bitcoin.

    • HI can you please provide links that I can compare. I need to do some study before I dive right in. I do have local miners for Protoshare they just don't run 24 hrs a day. So thats why I need something that would "help" in my mining.

      After mining, I trade them thus the income does not really come from mining but from the trading afterwards.

      I use an arbitrage tool that helps me pick the profitability path of one coin to another and then back again.
