    Hi all,

    I'm looking into buying a VPS for Scrapebox, and have a few questions.

    1) Do I need a windows vps, or can i get a linux one, and install windows on it in a vmware installation.

    2) How much bandwidth do i need. (1TB, more, or unmetered)
    Lets say I leave scrapebox harvesting/posting 8 hours a day.

    3) anyone got any experience with the vps' at xsserver
    Or can you recommend me a VPS, that you have used/are using, and is working well.

    Thanks :)

    Invic

    Good advise by UltimateSEO. But, if you don't mind spending the $35.00 then go with Xsserver.eu.

    I use them and they are great. Get the $35 plan, you'll want the extra RAM, believe me.

    I have so far used about 760GB of data over 16 days. So, i'm obviously going to go over the 1TB mark but I have been using it quite heavily, but I'll admit - I could push it a lot more. I could use 200GB a day if I Tried (but there is not much reason for me to do that)

    But, xsserver.eu has unmetered VPS anyway, so I don't think you will have a problem ;) And, best of all, it is a true 100mbps connection, I can download at 11mb/s - 12mb/s (although it is hard to keep it consistent at that level using SB)
