    None of those operatings systems will run with 512MB of ram!
    The only ones you might get away with is windows XP - but it would be REALLY slow.
    Or maybe 2012 core mode (No GUI) - Im sure it also has a minimum ram spec if 512MB? But Im sure it would not run well AT ALL.
    Really that VPS is no good for what you need.

    i get it at very cheap.

    atleast 1 firefox running window for 60 days will cover my cost of vps for a year

    You need more RAM. I would say get at least 1GB RAM to run multiple profiles.

    get windows 98/95 or even 3.1 :)

    you could try to install a damn small linux distro and see if you get anywhere with it but basically... there are phones with more RAM than you have on the VPS and they go for ~50-100$

    Yeah you're gonna need 1gb at least, probably stretch to 2gb if I were you.

    You can use multiple firefox instances on linux just run
    in terminal. This will open profile manager and allow you to select different profiles when starting firefox. The
    switch is important as well.

    I would never go this route... much too complicated
    and it is a huge waste of resources.

    Personally, if I needed to run on windows, I would get
    a dedi to start. Then log into it as admin and create
    as many sub/user accounts as I wanted.

    Use a different user account for each firefox instance.

    You will also, normally, get 10 unique ips. Or, you can
    set up a proxy inside the options of firefox for each user.

    Furthermore, if you don't want to do so, there is no need
    to register any domains in order to run firefox as each user.

    Hope things go well for you.


    edit: I do wonder though, if you can install more than one
    instance of firefox manually in subdirectories. C:\ (root)...
    ffone\firefox.exe, fftwo\firefox.exe, etc. You might be able
    to run them all under the same user (like you have it set
    up already)... then you can judge when things start to
    bog down -- trial & error.
