    I decided to buy myself a VPS (1 year subscription) as an early Christmas gift with some of the money I'm getting online. I don't have any particular use for it I just thought it would be a great investment and 1 year is a good amount of time to learn & start using it to help me make more money.

    specs of the VPS:
    Speed of the CPU: 1 Ghz
    Memory: 1GB
    HardDisk Space: 10GB
    Bandwidth: 1000 GB
    Connection: 30 Mb/s


    Apart from hosting your sites to make them faster, suggestions on how else a VPS can be used to help one make more money would be appreciated

    1 CPU speed is 1 Ghz. Only one CPU core?

    If you have 4-8 cores, you could make some money running mining scripts.

    If you don't have a use for it, it's about the exact definition of 'a waste of money'...

    yes I don't have a particular use for it now but its not a waste of money... I took the step of buying it because this will push me to learn and start using it.

    I would rather run some automated software to collect free points from Enhanceviews and Vagex. Later you can redeem it on a video and earn money via PPD or CPA.

    It depends on the VPS. If is not Windows based (and i believe is not), he won't be able to run software, except php scripts and i am not sure there are scripts to do what you said (though i may be wrong)

    So you purchased a 1 year subscription to a VPS without knowing what to use it for?

    If you wanted to make money, instead of buying something you don't even know how to use, you should have invested that money in a domain & hosting and started a website/blog or used it for purchasing HR views and started doing YT + CPA.

    Once you are being limited by your desktop hardware for projects then it is time to look at a VPS to declutter. I agree with other posters, purchasing it without any current use is a waste of money and resources.

    Out of interest how much have you spent on that VPS? I sure hope nothing more than $15/yr!

    As of know I don't have any particular use for it , I have had it for a week doing nothing with it... but hey within that 1 week I have learnt working with interfaces like virtualmin, features like BIND DNS weird things I didn't know last week. Anyways I know before the 1 yr is over I will have used it for something that will bring back more than the amount I had bought it at

    Well, seems a bit ineffectual purchasing a year with no plans pre purchase. However, a suggestion would be to load up GSA or No Hands SEO on it and set it to run building back links for some of your sites 24/7. That would be automated and you seem to have enough bandwidth to use that on there with no problems. You would get some benefit out of that suggestion if you setup those correctly.
