Any hosts in UK or EU willing to sponsor the development of a php proxy script

Hello all,

For the past few weeks a friend and I have been developing a php proxy script as an advancement to my previous proxy script (titanicbrowsing).

I currently have sponsored shared hosting from @Jeffrey at chromiumhosting.com which has been brilliant and I've been meaning to write a review, but unfortunately it doesn't have the latency and speed that I need to develop the script efficiently because of the distance from the UK to America.

I was wondering whether any hosts in the UK or in the EU that could offer me sponsored shared hosting or a VPS to develop the script on with negotiable terms ( for example - I advertise the host as the recommended host to run the script on once it has been released)

Script info -

This script uses phproxy as its base but has been substantially modified to get rid of a lot of their bad code that breaks the layout of many web pages. I will soon be implementing full youtube support in this script using youtube's original player instead of replacing it with a generic flash player like glype does. The user interface of this script has been redesigned from the ground up to make it as minimalistic and as simple to use as possible for the user.

Browser Support

Internet explorer support is quite patchy at the moment because it has special needs :L but most webpages display properly in google chrome. Our aim is to get this script fully functional in google chrome before the relevant adjustments are made to suit internet explorer. At the moment, we only plan to support the most current browsers at launch but we do have plans to implement backwards compatibility for those that are still living in the stone age.

The Future

We haven't really decided how we want to release this script yet (open source/licence based/hosted solution). And we haven't even thought of a name for the script yet.

If anyone has any suggestions (or ideas for a name :P) then please comment!

I look forward to hearing from you.

ps I can provide interested hosts with a demo url of the alpha version of the script

    What kind of resources do you need?

    IperWeb & Prometeus, Hosting Provider since 1997. iwStack cloud infrastructure
  • If its a VPS then only enough resources to install nginx or lighttpd and a ftp server.

    If its shared hosting then less than 1gb disk space and less than 20gb/month bandwidth

    Obviously a VPS may need a little more bandwidth because it needs to update etc.

    Thanks for your interest.

  • I've had a great response via PM. Thanks to the providers that have seen the light in our script!

    I will post a link to a live preview of the script soon for those interested.

    If you can use Austria message me, i have some VRS SMART or something for you for a mention or similar

    We got a brand new node in Vienna, waiting to get filled. You can PM me if you are interested in that location.

    Interesting, test IP? Vienna is rare :p

  • Wow, thanks for the great response. I have already sorted some space with prometeus and httpzoom. That will give me and my friend enough testing and development space for now. I don't want to waste lots of hosts resources so I won't take you all up on your very kind offers. If I need your services then I hope you won't mind me dropping a PM in the future.

    I will definitely be listing you all on the scripts main website when it gets released as a token of appreciation, but the main spots will be reserved for the hosts that are currently providing me with sponsored service

    Thanks once again! I will post an URL of a "working" demo soon

    Sure: 212.69.166.173

    I forgot to mention - it is one of our locations for shared / reseller hosting, we do not sell VPS on there. But the OP mentioned that he can use shared hosting as well,so posted :P

    Yes he do. One of my favourite VPSs! :) It's a pleasure to deal with someone who know his work.

  • The last post on the blog was a long time ago. I've put the development on hold for a little while because i have a lot of work on on my plate at the moment. It's not going to become a dead project though because I will be continuing development soon.

    One month and 6 days doesn't seem like that long ago to me.

    Repository has been set up!

    I look forward to seeing the project evolve as you find more time to work on it. :)

  • @titanicsaled what's wrong with hosting this in the US?

  • InfinityInfinity Member, Provider

    It's an old thread, but he lives in the UK so it's easier to develop with a faster server, closer to you.

  • InfinityInfinity Member, Provider

    @Zen said: Developing isn't magically faster the closer the server is to you :)

    I think I know that. I wouldn't say the US has a high ping from the UK either, depending on where in the US your server is..

  • InfinityInfinity Member, Provider

    @Zen said: You don't understand my point at all :)

    Possibly because I'm terribly tired too..

  • @vpsnodebox

    Nothing really for someone running the script, but for me it was a big pain because when I want to test a change I've made to the script I upload the whole thing via ftp. FTP transfers suffer from a much larger time delay when the server is far away so it was really painful having to wait for the FTP transfers to upload.

    With my UK server the entire script is uploaded in <5 seconds.

    It is also much better for me to test the script with because I can tell if my code is making the load time slow down. I also test many different websites with each change so testing is a much quicker process for me.
