    Hey guys, have a question.

    I'm new to VPS servers.. So, I was just wondering, is there any issues running software, lets say something like scrapebox or a youtube bot on a popular hosting provider, lets say, hostgator or something? All activity would be going behind proxies, so would just be using their bandwidth

    I know it's perhaps a silly question, but I was just wondering is this something they "check" or care about at all... or if there is certain vps providers to use for such software?


    thanks

    Don't do this - you will get away with it for a while - but then your account will get closed and you will lose access to everything and be put in a bad position.

    Make sure to use a Black Hat Host - or check with Hosting Company prior to using the software on their servers.

    Been there done that - don't do it.

    Now that spxmhaus is running profile and comment traps, you really need to be careful where you're running proxies. Most of the popular ISPs will sell you out in a heartbeat if you get them sbl'd.

    Hmmmm.. Ok. Any suggestions on a blackhat host?

    I would like to know, how would they know the close my account? If all my traffic is going behind proxies, how would they know what programs I'm running on the server, unless someone actually went and looked? And even then, would this employee know what the software is?

    I hear what you saying, and it's the reason I made this thread, but I'd like more details on how this could even be caught.


    Is there certain things that you definitely shouldnt do vs things that shouldnt be a big deal? Lets say sending emails with blackhat autoresponder via webmail accounts.. or, just using a myspace friend adder..

    Again, a suggestion on a good "blackhathost" would be great

    Try a VPS provider from BHW. I've been using Hostamus VPS with Scrapebox (+proxies) and had no issues.

    How would they find you ?

    They are monitoring all the sites and once you trigger an alert .. They will email you warning you... Once you do it again they will look at your account and just close it.... Then you gotta fight with them to get your data back.

    Or someone will track you down .. Report you to the host and bam.
    Lastly you hit some sort of honeypot and your host notices and your done.

    When you try to beat the system .. It just catches up to you.

    I useHostamus but there are other providers on BHW and elsewhere .. It's just so much safer to do it the smart way ... Cheers

    I hear you bro, I just want details, just for my personal knowledge.

    Just for the record, I wouldn't be running a website, just software from the desktop, like I would on my laptop or something.

    Let me ask you this, with hostamus or other providers, would anyone have access to your desktop? Or would that be password locked? Lets say I'm running a bot, would I be the only one who has access to see it, or could they simply log on to my desktop and view my activity?

    I can say privacy is a concern with smaller companies, so just wondering how that works.

    Yeah, I'd stay away from HG or any mainstream hosts. Go blackhat. I run all my tools on blackboxrdp servers with no problems at all.
