- MetalVPS is a project of @Not_Oles a/k/a 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.
- Thank you for using open source software at MetalVPS!
- @NodeSeek用户123 wrote a tutorial here at LES (English) and on xlog.app (Chinese) about how to launch Ubuntu with Qemu and RDP and port forwarding.
These congrats are transferred from MetalVPS' wonderful, now-decommissioned Fremont Node. More congrats will be added as people begin to use the new Node.
Clueless™ administrator! 😀 @Not_Oles frequently messes up! 😱
@Not_Oles is especially clueless™ about Debian since he is a Debian noob. 🤗
Hey! This Node runs Debian sid unstable! 🤩 And, it's RAID 0! 😭
Sometimes trusted MetalVPSians might or might not get sudo. 🙈🙉🙊
MetalVPS has no billing panel and no server control panel. It's all command line until you install the GUI that you want. 🆕
MetalVPS has no onboarding and no knowledge base. ♒︎ If you want to make an LXC or KVM VPS, please be willing to research about how to do it on the command line.
Account delivery might take awhile! 😴
Accounts 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 not a project of lowendspirit.com, lowendtalk.com, hetzner.com, or freevps.org. 👨💻
Other MetalVPSians can 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. 🤔
We're just beginning on this Node.
So far, gcc, git, lxc, qemu-kvm, zsh, and more are installed. Additional configuration is required, but MetalVPSians should be able to compile, to create unprivileged LXC containers, and to create KVM virtual machines.
Possibilities include installing Go, Plan9port, Docker and Nix. Plus code-server, oksh, Xv6, plan9port, LAMP stack. Plus more. If you want something, please let us know!
How To Sign Up
If you have a new LES account, please introduce yourself in your post. Please tell us what you plan to do with your MetalVPS account. Please include your ed25519 ssh public key.
Please post in this thread. Only if necessary, PM or use the email on @Not_Oles profile.
Additional communication channels might be available via Signal App, Discord, Jitsi, etc.
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)"
Tom gets a lot of help from the friendly MetalVPSians and from many other friends.
Thanks again and best wishes! 🇺🇸🗽🇲🇽🇫🇮🇩🇪🏜️
I hope everyone gets the servers they want!
