Free i9-9900K Proxmox Accounts At Hetzner FSN1
Friendly greetings to all! 🌎🌍
As of January 18, 2023 free accounts remain available! However the server is set to cancel on February 7, 2023. The cancellation might be revoked. Users might be invited to transfer to a different server. This server might be available for transfer if someone wants it.
Proxmox seems to have been installed on a MetalVPS antique Intel node at Hetzner FSN1.
Want a free account? Maybe with sudo? 👍 Right now plenty of server resources are available because there is nobody using the FSN1 node except @Not_Oles. Fair use, but your VM specs don't have to be tiny. 🐷
Maybe VMs might be IPv6/128 only for now? If you have only IPv4, perhaps head over to Route48.org or Hurricane Electric Tunnel Broker to add free IPv6 capability. Also consider putting your web service behind a CDN which allows access via IPv4.
Maybe LXC only for now?

- MetalVPS is a project of @Not_Oles a/k/a Tom Miller a/k/a the clueless™ guy.
MetalVPS currently has nodes in Falkenstein, Germany 🇩🇪; Dallas, Texas USA 🇺🇸; and Fremont, California USA 🇺🇸.
The Dallas and Freemont nodes are not included in this free offer.
Why not? It's fun to play with and learn about servers, operating systems, and the internet.
@Not_Oles uses very little of his MetalVPS servers' capacity. It's better to offer the extra capacity to others than to waste it. 🤔
Maybe the requirement (please see below, How To Sign Up) to accompany applications with a link to a post here on LES where you helped someone else might encourage our wonderful Low End Spirit!
Clueless™ administrator! 😀 @Not_Oles frequently messes up! 😱
@Not_Oles is especially clueless™ about Proxmox since he is a Proxmox noob. 🤗
Sometimes trusted MetalVPSians might or might not get sudo. 🙈🙉🙊
MetalVPS usually has no billing panel and no server control panel. It's all command line until you install a GUI or activate whatever pre-installed GUI you want. 🆕 Maybe you can use the Proxmox web GUI. Maybe you can make your VM with the Proxmox command line! 🤗
MetalVPS has no onboarding and no knowledge base. ♒︎ If you want to make a VM, you need to know or be willing to research about how to do it.
Account delivery might take a while! 😴 Accounts might be difficult to get, and there might not be very many accounts, because @Not_Oles enjoys servers that are not crowded. 🍔 @Not_Oles will go especially slowly on this node! 🐢
Both individual accounts and the entire server are subject to cancellation at any time without advance notice! 💥
No warranty, to the extent permitted by applicable law. No service level agreement. Not for business use. Intended especially for computer learning and fun! 🤑
White Hat stuff only, please! No copyright violations, please. 👍
@Not_Oles tries to keep the system updated. Frequent maintenance reboots are almost guaranteed! 🌺
Please make your own redundant, offsite backups! It's easy to download or sync or clone your backup to a safe place. Please also make sure that you actually can restore from your backups! Please think of your MetalVPS account as ephemeral! It might blow up! We or you might reinstall the node! 🤦♂️
MetalVPS.com is an indie project of @Not_Oles a/k/a Tom Miller with help from the MetalVPSians and many other friends. MetalVPS.com is not a project of lowendspirit.com, lowendtalk.com, Hetzner, leveloneservers.com, or of Cloudie Networks, LLC. 👨💻
Other MetalVPSians might be able to see your account name, some of the processes you are running, and much other information. So, please do not put confidential information on the server. 🤔

What People Are Saying
- About MetalVPS
". . . very passionate and enthusiastic about everything. Not all businesses are made this way and it's very easy to see when you interact with them. You are giving the right impression with this industry and it's wonderful to see."
"I think MetalVPS is designed in between a dedicated and a regular VPS. Some use case cannot fill the capacity of a dedicated but need more CPU than a regular VPS, and it makes sense to use MetalVPS in such situation."
- About Not_Oles
"Possibly the most polite and enthusiastic personality in the entire LE* world with a genuine interest that runs so deep he even set up a business exclusively catering for LES. as a regular content writer for LES his articles frequently top the charts in terms of most viewed (according to google)"
Thanks again and best wishes! 🇺🇸🗽🇲🇽🏜️🇩🇪👨💻
I hope everyone gets the servers they want!
