Good uses for 512MB 3IP 5GB VPS? Only using for DNS atm...

gibstergibster Member

Hey all,
I have an old VPS - 512MB, 1IP's and 5GB storage thst is currently only being used for backup DNS for my website and I was wondering if there was anything useful that I could do with it apart from just letting it stay there...
Many thanks in advance,
Ben

Another month, another casual reminder of the monotonous and pointless passage of time.

  • Install and run Huginn? Maybe a private vpn?

  • run three Tor bridges on them! they won't use much bandwidth but they provide uncensoured internet access to users in repressed regions. they won't generate abuse complaints, either

  • You may use it as NTP server for the pool: http://www.pool.ntp.org/en/ ;)

    Because of the large number of users we are in need of more servers. If you have a server with a static IP address always available on the internet, please consider adding it to the system.

    I already use all my servers for it…

    OpenVZ servers can't be used for NTP, at least not effectively.

    It only has 5GB storage. Also the provider doesn't allow seedbox.

    I like what she said, not what it means.

    Install Piwik and use it for your sites.
    ...
    Install and stream Shoutcast/Icecast
    ...
    Install a private proxy/vpn
    ...
    Mount fuse filesystems and use that VPS to sync your cloud accounts.
    ...
    Make it a honeypot to collect attacker/spammer ip addresses by writing a bash script that collects IP's from logs just to block them on your other hosts.
    ...
    Install Nginx/Varnish to make it work as a proxy for your sites, use it like a cheap CDN.
    ...
    ...

    ...
    ...

    • RabbitMQ (message queue)
    • Nginx reverse proxy to use the dedicated IP (if GRE is not available and on OpenVZ)

  • It seems to be ipsystems.

    Run useful apps like paperwork.rocks or piwik or even a mail server

    Different.

    If you've got plenty of spare data transfer, you could use it to support ArchiveTeam projects?

    Here lies Nekki. He loved massive amounts of storage, K-Pop and calling people cunts.
