Cheap vps for idling/testing stuff

Hi all,

Looking for a VPS to idle... specs are irrelevant

20gb+
2gb ram
And some bandwidth

What can I get for £30 per year (ive currently for a racknerd I'm paying like $25 per year for with similar specs)

Ta

Chip

    I have checked the recent offers but I also thought I would ask and see what providers where willing to offer

    Do you provide cheap ipv6 only vps? If so, what is the minimal package coud you providel

  • @MikeA said:

    If cheap enough, unlikely someone paying 2€ or more a month for v6 only, if it does not have decent specs.
    We had people trying to charge people 5$ for NAT and/or IPv6 only VPS monthly.

    No I would like ipv4 too

    That looks nice is it a yoghurt and mint dip?

    Are they carrots/celery and parsnip?

    If you aren't already signed up and have a credit card to sign up with, why not give Oracle Cloud a shot? You get two free x86 VMs with similar specs to your requirements, and a single free ARM VM that can go up to 4 cores and 24GB of RAM. Or multiple VMs if you split that up into chunks.

    Cheap dedis are my drug, and I'm too far gone to turn back.

    The IO of their machines is not satisfactory.

    OP mentioned that specs are not important.

    Besides Oracle Cloud has better IO on bigger storage, 200GB performs better than default 50GB.

    I bench YABS 24/7/365 unless it's a leap year.

    You're right, Oracle's free tier just doesn't meet my needs, but it does for chip.

    like you i didn't have a positive experience with Oracle free tier, which is why i bought below annual vpses to idle:

    • Inceptionhosting 2C2G30GB 25EUR (transferred out)
    • greencloudvps 2222 deal 2C2G22GB EPYC $22
    • Webhosting24 special 2C2G100GB 2697v3 22EUR
    • hostcram 2C2G20GB 5950X LXC $25

    all in this 2GB ram tier having amazing IO.

    Well, I don't have such strict requirements, but it is acceptable to spend a small amount of money to improve the experience of the server.
    Oracle's free tier is also acceptable, for "free" sake.

    I've had no issues on my end. The x86 VMs definitely are a bit slow in terms of Disk I/O but my 4C/24G ARM instance flies. I've got a Minecraft server running on it with no issues. It's unfortunate it seems hit & miss for some people. I've got my instances in Phoenix, myself.

    Cheap dedis are my drug, and I'm too far gone to turn back.
