MetalVPS Bare Metal Flash Sale! E3, 64 GB DDR4 RAM, 2 x 512 GB NVMe, 1 Gbps -- $7
Friendly greetings! 🌎🌍
Awesome MetalVPS Bare Metal Flash Sale Offer!
Please look at the below screenshot of a recent Hetzner Server Auction listing. The server in the screenshot has an identical twin, newly delivered from Hetzner. Not yet having any OS installed, our new sister is relaxing, as delivered, in the Hetzner Rescue System just waiting for you!
You can install pretty much whatever OS you want via the Rescue System, VNC Install, Auto Install, KVM Spider, etc. Of course, and only if you prefer, you can ask @Not_Oles to do the install.
You get root on the installed server. You can use the server in any awesome way you want.
What's The Catch?
Welp, in addition to all the Warnings and all the Terms of Service shown below, you get an old guy a veritable cucaracha 🪳 joining you as root on the server. You gotta teach the seemingly immortal, ancient cucaracha something while also making sure he has fun learning from you! 🌟 Additionally, if you want, and only if you want, maybe we might let a friend or a few friends join us on the server.
Unlike Gentoo USE flags, there is only one use of this flash sale unless the winner decides to allow additional uses.
How will the winner be selected? Maybe nobody will like the offer. If somebody or several people like the offer and want to buy, then it's up to @Not_Oles to pick the winner. @Not_Oles can decide for any reason or for no reason at all. @Not_Oles reserves the right not to pick any winner, even if multiple people apply.
@Not_Oles is especially clueless™ about Debian, Fedora, and all other OSes. 🤗
Sometimes trusted MetalVPSians might or might not get sudo. You get root, so you can give yourself or other people sudo if you want. 🙈🙉🙊
MetalVPS has no billing panel and no server control panel. It's all command line via ssh until you install the GUI that you want. 🆕
MetalVPS has no onboarding and no knowledge base. ♒︎
Account delivery might take awhile! 😴
Intended especially for computer learning and fun! 🤑
Frequent (almost daily) maintenance reboots are guaranteed! 🌺 Reboot timing depends on you.
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! Your server might blow up! 💥 At any random second @Not_Oles or maybe you might reinstall the Node! 🤦♂️
If you want to let anyone else come aboard, 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. 🤔 Unless you want to.
MetalVPS Neighbors are expected both to monitor and to contribute actively to this thread or to the companion Nodeseek and Low End Talk threads. 🍔 Nope. This one can be as secret or as public as you want. It's up to you! ♒︎

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
