What you get
ssh to shell account or VNC to GUI (KDE, Xfce, more). You can spin up an LXC container or a KVM. Reasonable access to all resources. No arbitrary limits.
Reasonable access without arbitrary limits means, for example, that a single neighbor could run more than one VPS, could use more than one IPv4 and IPv6, etc.
Currently there is one user plus @Not_Oles. 🤩 So far, nobody has been using significant server resources -- thus, almost everything remains available.

Clueless™ administrator! 😀
Hey! It's Slackware-current! 🤩
KVM and LXC are insufficiently tested on this machine. 🔜 Want to help test?
Sometimes trusted neighbors might get sudo. 🙈🙉🙊 Did you know that sudo can be configured?
Delivery might take awhile! 😴
@Not_Oles frequently messes up new installs! 😱
You might have to do your VM install yourself if @Not_Oles is slacking. 😎
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! It's horrifying 😱 or amazing ✨💖✨ how up-to-date Slackware-current is! @Not_Oles has been updating almost every day for months, first on a VM on the MetalVPS Hetzner node and now here in Texas. Upstream issues an update, and -- within a day or two -- that update scrolls past while
slackpkg updateis running.
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!

Neighbors 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.
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 and best wishes! 🇺🇸🗽🇲🇽🏜️🇩🇪👨💻
