    Hello fellow Blackhatters,

    I just received my latest phone bill and it turns out I've been charged an extra $1k for overused internet at 2c a kilobyte. Ridiculous right?

    I have a dedicated server which I was using to create an auto approve list for myself but I guess I could put it to better use doing something else for now, I have 60 private proxies as well as Scrapebox on there.

    It has a 1 Gbit line, 2gb ram and a dual core 2.93ghz cpu.

    Do you guys have any suggestions as to how to best monetize this server? Thanks

    a dedicated server is the sort of thing you shouldn't have until its obvious that you need it.

    I had some extra money laying around so I thought i'd grab one, in hindsight I wish that money was in the bank but I can't worry about that now

    wont really help him I guess since he will be charged again. Didnt you go for an unlimited plan ? If so if they apply some stupid fair use it should throttle your line or suspend your account etc.. get rid of the BS company asap

    you could try to sell your list but would have to split it up and dont oversell but i dont think it will net you 1k

    You could possibly install some games on there (TF2, CSS etc) and get some dedicated servers running.

    Then, when a player joins your server they see an advertisement message right before entering the game (which you of course will make money off of)
