Free i9-9900K Ubuntu Jammy Shell Accounts At Hetzner HEL1
Friendly greetings to all! 🌎🌍
Ubuntu Jammy seems to have been installed on a MetalVPS Intel i9-9900K node at Hetzner Helsinki.
Want a free account? Maybe with sudo? 👍 Right now plenty of server resources are available because there is nobody using the HEL1 node except @Not_Oles. Fair use, but, if you make a VM, your VM specs don't have to be tiny. 🐷
- Intel Core i9-9900K
- 2 x RAM 32768 MB DDR4
- 2 x SSD M.2 NVMe 1 TB RAID 0
- 100 GB /altroot partition
- NIC 1 Gbit Intel I219-LM
- Location: HEL1-DC4
1 x Primary IPv4, 1 x IPv6/64
Hardware rented from Hetzner for € 53.70 / month.
Node OS: Ubuntu Jammy for now! 🤩 NetBSD might or might not be coming soon! ❤️
VM OS: Whatever you install!
- MetalVPS is not a registered entity. Instead, MetalVPS is an indie project of @Not_Oles IRL Tom Miller a/k/a the clueless™ guy.
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 request (please see below, How To Sign Up) to accompany applications with links to posts here on LES where you asked for tech help or helped someone else with a tech question might encourage our wonderful Low End Spirit!
Clueless™ administrator! 😀 @Not_Oles frequently messes up! 😱
@Not_Oles is especially clueless™ about Ubuntu since he is an Ubuntu noob. 🤗
Sometimes trusted MetalVPSians might or might not get sudo. 🙈🙉🙊
RAID 0 is faster, but, if one drive goes, everything is gone. 🔥
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 install and use some kind of web GUI. Maybe you can make your VM with the Ubuntu 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 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 IRL Tom Miller with help from the MetalVPSians and many other friends. MetalVPS.com is neither a project of lowendspirit.com nor a project of Hetzner. 👨💻
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)"

I hope everyone gets the servers they want!
