    I was just wondering once you get out of the free tier and upgrade, is AWS economical to still use for MP and followliker or should i go with a cheap VPN service in marketplace?

    I've personally used the Free Tier AWS and Massplanner and it is worth it. MP takes up a lot of RAM but it's one helluva piece of software. You can run about 25-30 accounts on Massplanner on the free 1GB VPS from Amazon.

    I'd suggest doing that,getting some start up money and then buying a VPS from the next month.

    No sir, the free AWS tier starts crashing like crazy if you run more than 10 accounts at once on MP2. The free tier can barely handle ANY software at all.

    You are right about MP being incredible software though. It is fantastic

    AWS is very expensive though, To successfully run 30 accounts, you'll need to pay about 300 a month (c4 xlarge). I'd go with a different service. I am in the process of switching over from AWS myself. Greencloudvps offers way more ram (etc) than AWS' c4 xlarge for only 50 a month.

    helll no it isn't. Check out greencloudvps, I am thinking about switching to them. They are VERY cheap, and have good reviews here on BHW.

    Would anybody care to name a good VPN for MP, i don't want to sift through the hosting marketplace, i want a good VPN that is secure and trusted and am willing to pay a little extra for it.
