MetalVPS: Clueless Administrator, No Billing Panel - What the Heck?

MetalVPSWould you like a VPS on these terms?

  • Clueless administrator who says he has no technical background and limited technical skills.
  • No graphical panel
  • No onboarding
  • No knowledge base
  • Takes a while to setup account
  • Occasional maintenance reboots
  • No backups
  • Owners consider your VPS ephemeral

What kind of offer is that?!?

Well, there’s a couple more bullet points:

  • VMs are FREE (sometimes)
  • It’s a community project run by our own @Not_Oles

What I’m referring to is MetalVPS.  It’s a “pay what you think is right” service, or as they put it:

  • Minimum price offers like $1.01 will be considered. Free offers will be considered too.

You can also get accounts for $1.01/ONCE.

So should you put your small business shopping cart on MetalVPS?  No!  But if you have hobby projects, monitoring scripts, or other non-critical issues, why not give MetalVPS a try?

Lots more to read including YABS in @Not_Oles latest thread on LowEndTalk.
