    Hi, I was wondering what are the profitable business ventures achieved by utilizing the service of a VPS? I have found some -

    1) Web Hosting
    2) Online Radio Streaming
    3) Torrents
    4) Cloud Computing

    what other profitable uses are there? :pirate:

    Seedboxes are very profitable. But there is some competition and you need to make sure you have offshore dedi's in country's such as Netherlands, Luxembourg etc.

    Depends on how much risk you would like to take..

    On the whitehate ways, you can pretty much get WHM license and sell hosting which is the easiest of all or setup a online radio streaming server..

    On the blackhat ways, buy a xrumer, run it on the VPS and sell the service in fiverr gigs !

    Home Page:
    web hosting - can be in the USA but no CP/warez or adult(depending on the hosts TOS)
    Can be profitable but you MUST calculate out the plans and the profit/loss margins before hand or you may lose out fairly quick. I would say have at least 2-4 months saved up for hosting incase it doesn't pay for itself right away

    radio streaming - you need unlimited bandwith or a VERY high amount 1gb can easily be ran through in an hour or so without even thinking about it because streaming itself takes bandwith then each person watching eats more bandwith
    torrents - you NEED offshore dedicated server or at least a VPS. I would say China, Russia, Netherlands, Germany(maybe).
    cloud computing - i am unsure of, I don't want to give you wrongful information. But the above 3 I gave what information I know.

    Hopefully this helps you in your decisions.

    For streaming a Radio Station would it be sort of like an autoblog? I mean will it automatically stream 24*7 even if I don't log into for 2-3 days?
