    v332 v333  
    2020 * [http://www.evolucix.com Evolucix] is a low cost VPS provider. They offer TUN/TAP extensions on top of OpenVZ to provide VPN capabilities. They are fine with bridges and relays but due to the US regulations running exit nodes can be tricky. Great service from my experience.
    2121 * [http://www.futurehosting.com/ Future Hosting] didn't seem to having an opinion on Tor exit relays. It was easy to get another IP address and configure rDNS on my "unmanaged VPS" plan. There have been no DMCA notices yet. (Dec 2013)
    22  * [http://greenvaluehost.com GreenValueHost] Allows Tor exits ! even actively helping solve set-up problems (January, 2014). Atlas says 2.79 MB/sec today. They are the cheapest decent operators I've found.  As of March 2014, the TOS states that "ToR Anonymity associated applications" are unacceptable.
    2322 * [http://www.hostgator.com/ HostGator] allowed Tor on VPS and Dedicated at least last year (2011), however you might want to check if this policy still applies. Their phone and live chat support is on 24/7. Hosted an exit relay for a couple of months. I discontinued my VPS because of the heavy price (still a great host though).
    2423 * [https://ipxcore.com/ IPXcore] allows non-exit nodes.
     
    177176 * [http://www.serveraxis.com ServerAxis] Low-cost VPS provider. (2013-07-13) Began talking to this provider when my current provider wouldn't allocate me a second IP address to separate tor traffic from other server traffic.  Their response: "Sorry we consider tor to be an unauthenticated proxy which we do not allow in our acceptable usage policies."
    178177 * [http://www.sitevalley.com/ www.sitevalley.com/] (aka TwinServers) used to allow Tor nodes (early 2012), including Exits, but in July 2013 shut down a non-Exit node and stated that Tor in any form was against their TOS.
    179  * [http://www.psychz.net Psychz.net] PhotonVPS.com and Yardvps.com are also their affiliated brands. They're just not smart guys and don't speak English properly at all.  Although they don't treat Tor differently but they're just mean about all kinds of abuses. And once your VPS get suspended, it requires a lot of work to get it back to normal.

    200199 * The german ISP dogado ended up killing the Tor server process and blocking the OR-port on my vServer. -- d00b
    201  * [http://comsitec.de comsitec.de] 2/2014 Unlimited data paid a year in advance but frequently off and slow. Ticket responses very poor. AVOID THEM

    202201 * The german ISP EuServ / ISPro -- they just broke the contract, switching our Server off. -- padeluun
    203202 * EUServ VPS: They have a numtcpsock setting of max 600, not able to run Tor properly. They also exclude it from their TOS. -- August 2013, Torpids
    204203 * [http://www.manitu.de/ Manitu] forbids any anonymisation techniques in their AGBs --qbi (gamambel: I have asked and they made me an offer for 100mbit dedi at 1500 euro)
    205204 * [http://www.ovh.de OVH] (German ISP) offers root server with a high bandwidth (up to 5.000 kB/s). They changed their AGB and cancel "problematic" contracts very fast. -- qbi
    206  * plusserver.de  shut down h07onion due to gross incompetence. Look at http://archives.seul.org/or/talk/Mar-2005/msg00120.html for more details.

    207206 * "I have recently checked [http://www.manitu.de manitu] because they advertise with internet without censorship and data retention. Unfortunately they explicitly forbid providing anonymization services in their [http://www.manitu.de/impressum/agb.pdf general terms and conditions]. On inquiry they have justified this restriction with the enormous bandwidth consumption and the impossibility to achieve fair combined costing in this case. For the same reason they forbid running mirrors of public data such as open source software. So I believe their argument is no pretense." -- Alex, Dec 01 2009 via email.
    208207 * netcup.de suspended one vserver running a Tor exit node, analyzed stuff, and charged 192€ for processing _one_ dmca-notice. - ari
    209  * netdirekt.de  "Leider unterstützen wir keine Tor Exits. Sofern diese in unserem Netzwerk sind gab es vermutlich noch keine Vorfälle."

    210209 * [http://www.strato.de Strato] writes in their [http://www.strato.de/agb/index.html AGB] "Abschnitt III: Sonderregeln für dedizierte und virtuelle Server ... 1.1 Eine Nutzung der Server zur Bereitstellung folgender Dienste ist ausgeschlossen: ... Anonymisierungsdienste, z.B. Tor, JAP, Proxyserver"
    211210 * [http://www.netcup.de netcup.de] Running a tor relay node with 256 kB/s bandwidth and 600gb traffic limit configured in tor I was moved to a high traffic node after about 8 days or 400 GB traffic usage, at which point the average bandwidth dropped to less than 50 kB/s. I was not notified of this changed but its clearly noticable via vnstat -d and a different cpu usage pattern on the new server (as in 100% _all_ the time).
