[CLOSED] 27 VPSs Available - November Giveaway 2017
#21
Is hosting games on VPS 20 not allow? Would like to apply for that server for that reason as my second container if no one beats me to it (please don't DSmile. Looked at the TOS and AUP and I can't find anything that doesn't allow it anymore, TOS reads that it's last revision was on October 19, 2017 so they may have taken it out? Could someone check? I might have missed it somewhere maybe, AUP was just a wall of text and had a hard time reading it.
Thank you HostUS for VPS 16!

Providers can have different rules for paying customers and nonpaying customers. Since the gameserver policy says it's forbidden on VPS 20, it's forbidden until they tell us otherwise.

Only 5 vps out of 27 servers are taken. Seems not many wanted to servers from this give away. Nobody has taken vps20 which has 1GB RAM and 1Gbps speed along with control panel and everything. VPS15 is pretty much same which comes with 512MB RAM and 5122MB SWAP. Not a single VPS18 is taken either.

This is a good time for those who want to take a second server. Some really nice options are available.

I don't see many options - like the majority seem to be with location in US so probably would be more suited for those living in the US.  VPSs 3 and 6 are in France - they should be OK - of the two VPS 3 looks attractive as it comes with a KVM Virtualization.  VPS 15 is in the US - and operated by HostUS - HostUS has great speed from its default location Charlotte, North Carolina even for those located very far from the hub so I'd really recommend it.  I've just subscribed to a HostUS VPS with slightly more RAM than 512 MB and am more than happy with it.  I have a very high regard for HostUS - they do VPSs well.

Could you verify it with them on it?  Before when I checked, it was forbidden on their containers in their TOS or AUP, can't remember which, now it's no longer on both of them.

Depends on for what do you plan to use these servers are. If these are to be used as web severs then US locations are perfectly fine. Unless you are planing a local site and target local traffic outside North America. HostUS servers don't come with a control panel, do those ?

@IEpicDestroyer

I don't think the provider gonna chance rules for free vps even if they are revamping or changing TOS and AUP. Maybe they have decided to let paid users to do game servers but doubt they would let us. Game Servers usually attract lot more trouble than anything else. )))

I always think, it doesn't hurt to ask/try, so if it's still a no, then fine, but it would be nice if I could run a Minecraft server on the container.  Otherwise I'll just go with hosting that Discord bot that I need or my website if hosting a Discord bot counts towards a game (even when it should be just using the API).

If I were you, and I wanted a VPS for games, I'd go to a post to host forum that specializes in VPSs for games.  You get the benefit of being in the company of others like yourself who are enthusiastic about games, as well as VPSs that have been set up specifically for games.  VPSs for games is a different ball game than VPSs for basic use - so hosts who feel that their VPSs don't qualify for games servers add restrictions for that application.  Those restrictions are in your favour too as that should warn you that the container is not a good place for your Minecraft server.
