Low End Spirit
Low End Spirit is a service that provides virtual private servers (VPS), sometimes known as virtual machines (VM), at many locations around the world at a very very! low cost.
Super low cost. From €1.99 per year low cost.
The caveat? They are considered to be very “low end” and have a few limitations.
The resources provided to each machine are very limited: some of the machines only have 128MB RAM and you get a tiny amount (~3GB) of disk space. You also do not get a public IPv4 address: each VPS is behind a NAT with 21 ports forwarded from a shared IP address to your machine.
However, there are 65536 IPv6 addresses available to each VPS and there are services such as proxies and IPv6-IPv4 tunnels available to workaround having no allocated IPv4 address.
There are many things you can do with such a low end VPS. This very site is running on one from Dallas, Texas, US. I will be posting more ideas in the Low End Spirit category.
