    So I read the overall premise on another forum though I thought to edit and share it in my own words to help anyone out or get started.

    First off, a "virtual private server (VPS) is a virtual machine sold as a service by an Internet hosting service. A VPS runs its own copy of an operating system, and customers have superuser-level access to that operating system instance, so they can install almost any software that runs on that OS."—Wikipedia

    To begin, here are some varying and opportune methods:


    1. Running HitLeap

    By running HitLeap on your VPS you can get hits on your website or designated link; but you may be wondering, "How would I make money by getting hits on my website?"
    Well . . . DON'T consider PTP, Adfly, or Adsense; you will probably get banned almost immediately, so therefore it's not profitable at all—and really it's just a waste of time. If you decide to utilize "anonymous ads" you will earn a lot of BTC . . . trust me, and you can also use AdHexa (though disclaimer: they may pay through Skrill only). Another great technique is to sell your HitLeap minutes on Fiverr or wherever you see fit.

    2. Hosting Game servers

    You can host game servers as in: Counter Strike, Minecraft (be wary as Minecraft servers require a lot of RAM), etc., and sell them or keep them as your own. It's suggested to use Linux when hosting those game servers, for Windows takes a far greater amount of performance (required).

    3. Running Macros

    Running macros like AddMeFast are good for one: "to get points" and two: "then sell the account on any marketplace;" or use macros on any other websites like PTC, or of course your own social media network(s) (though I advise you to go semi-easy when it comes to PTC offers).

    4. Running Bots

    You can run bots like "auto clickers" and use "GSA captcha breaker" (or any service you prefer as long as it works) to take care of roadblocks that may interrupt or intervene with your accompanying tasks. Of course there's absolutely plenty of possibilities, I'm just conveying an example.

    5. Running FTP servers

    Create FTP servers and sell them to new companies; though this can be difficult to do.

    6. Retransmission of Streams

    To retransmit a stream for another person or group. An example would be: "A server in the UK that is dedicated to displaying certain content to only UK citizens, and an individual that takes that content funneling it through his VPS to let's say . . . France for those who'd like to view said content as well."

    7. Penetration Test on the Cloud

    You can offer pentest cloud services by installing Kali Linux tools and reselling it to other people for underlying purposes (and make sure to do your research when it comes to this so you know "the ins and outs" of any corresponding legal procedures, related methods, general functionality, etc.).


    Ventures or Methods I'd Recommend to Stay Away from (Unless You for Sure Know What You're Doing)


    • Don't even think about Cryptocurrency mining with a VPS; mining is problematic and not efficient enough to be considered worthwhile.
    • Don't try to DDoS (could and most likely will screw up or exceed your bandwidth limit(s) if you have any).
    • Don't use a "Trojan" or "botnet" as you may already know the possible consequences.

    Well that's it. Hopefully you take something away from this thread and are able to apply it; and perhaps create your own twist to generate a hefty profit.

    Thanks.

    Best regards,
    Saroekin

    Huh? Do you mean Copyscape? I don't know whether you're being serious or not.

    Good attempt to get thanks, but honestly, you better stick to ONE method and develop it rather than throwing bunch of mainstreams idea.

    Based on your method, I can make my top 2 methods for making money:

    1/ sell a service. people like it, you should sell a service to people who want it.
    2/ sell a product. People love that shit. I mean products are good and people always buys in shop.

    Well that's kind of a given, correct? I mean, everything was a little more specific than that to give an idea on what you could do with VPSs and get creative; these are broad and anyone of them you could change and make your own.

    Wasn't trying to get thanks, just didn't see the info. anywhere else so I decided to post it. Obviously you don't just follow what I've submitted as if it's an in-depth guide; it's to help you come up with a unique concept and possibly do something you enjoy with said concept.

    And who said they were going to do all of the points listed?

    I'm not particularly sure whether you were trying to influence the topic positively or negatively; though in any case, you for sure did a lousy job of explaining your opinion.

    Best regards,
