    v374 v375  
    1717 * `relay [+] exit [-]` [http://chunkhost.com ChunkHost] Good bandwidth, great uptime, excellent support, all around excellent VPS provider.  However they questionable policies about Tor.  They received one DMCA notice and despite the standard response, tell me VPS will be disable with one more notification.  Still working this out. -hRB Jan/2012
    1818 * `relay [+] exit [+]` [http://cinipac.com Team Cinipac] Team Cinipac "allow on all server locations services like Tor/VPN/I2P because we are supporting projects who safe the privacy like wikileaks, Tor etc. We stand behind our customer and abuse will be forwarded to you to take action. If you have problems, need help etc. just only contact our Abuse/Law Department they will help you in this case. We do not provide any kind of information to third parties. Our company locate in Panama and we ignore court orders from other countries, because we think privacy is an human right."
    19  * [http://www.cyberonic.com Cyberonic] is now on the COVAD backbone, so you should be able to get service from them anywhere you could get other COVAD-based service. They offer 6.0m/768kbps at $59/month, w/ a static IP. Can't recall ever having downtime due to them and their TOS only restrict Email relay servers (and that's probably only enforced if you have complaints). All other servers ok. If you sign up, tell 'em brianwc sent you and I think I get a free month. -- BrianC

    2020 * [http://ethr.net/ Ethr.net] is a Tor-friendly ISP that already has a 20Mbit Tor Exit Node hosted there. Their services are a bit pricey, but they have excellent peering, and offer a "Cheap-Net" option to give you he.net bandwidth at a little less than half of their listed prices (~$20/Mbit).
    2121 * `relay [+] exit [-]` [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.
     
    2323 * `relay [+] exit [+]` [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).
    2424 * `relay [+] exit [-]` [https://ipxcore.com/ IPXcore] allows non-exit nodes.
    25  * [https://www.lunanode.com/index.php Luna Node] Fine with Tor relays, good bandwidth & cheap. Exit nodes explicitly [https://dynamic.lunanode.com/terms.php prohibited]. (May, 2014)
    26  * RoadRunner (TimeWarner) (USA): Very reliable service. Been running web server on 80 for several years. IP changes when cable modem reset (almost never for me). No ports blocked (that I know of). No BW limits, only speed caps. I've got 5Mbps down/384kbps up. Definitely recommend. Running Tor since Jan 06. -- MichaelAnsel
    27  * [http://www.softlayer.com Softlayer] allows for customized WHOIS, reverse DNS from their portal, and they are an utility provider. They have dedicated servers and cloud instances (Hourly or monthly billed). They come with 3,000 GB bandwidth standard, if you get a dedicated box. You can pick Dallas, Seattle, Washington D.C., and San Jose for server locations. By the end of the year (2011), you will also be able to run nodes in Europe and Asia as well. You may remember these guys: ThePlanet.com merged with SoftLayer in late 2010.

    2828 * `relay [+] exit [-]` [http://www.slicehost.com/ Slicehost/Rackspace] (a hosting provider, not an ISP) allows running Tor on their servers, but if anybody downloads copyrighted material illegally through Tor, that's a ToS violation. I had an issue with a DMCA (copyright violation) notice triggered by Tor activity exiting through my server, and I had to agree to block the port on which the material was downloaded for them to let me continue running the exit relay. Setting an ExitPolicy that only allows certain ports is probably smart if you don't want to get into trouble. Otherwise, the service is great; each server gets guaranteed 10 Mbps, and the network has never been down in the 6 months I've been a customer. Plans start at US $20/month, reasonably cheap as these things go. Update: 3 March 2010: Approach with caution. I'd love to move my exit node to Slicehost, but after trading several e-mails with a Greg in technical support, I could not get a straight answer about whether Tor complies with the company's AUP. Greg's response when pushed: "Again, we do not recommend this service to be run on our platform. If you have any other questions, please let us know." -- EricB
    29  * [http://www.sh3lls.net/dedicated.htm Sh3lls] says their dedicated servers can be used for anything legal, as long as the customer handles abuse they're fine. As of December 4, 2013, Sh3lls notified me that my exit node will be terminated due to "excessive complaints", despite the fact that I've handled every notice brought to my attention and I'm running a restricted exit policy. Sh3lls.net is no longer an exit node friendly ISP.

    3030 * [http://tailoredvps.com/ Tailored VPS] has a [http://blog.tailoredvps.com/?p=34 blog post] about hosting Tor relays so I assumed they allow hosting one. Been their member since late January 2012. Good experience so far. -> I can confirm they are quite tor-tolerant (even exit nodes). They ask you to deal with the abuse letters they forward you, and may ask to add an exit policy to the "victim"'s IP as a precaution. Not the cheapest, but they play nice with Tor relays.  Tailored VPS was bought out in January 2014 by [http://frontrangehosting.com/ Front Range Hosting], whose acceptable use policy specifically disallows Tor exits.
    3131 * [https://vps6.net/ VPS6.NET] Tor initially allowed. Been hosting for an exit a couple of days there (also very nice support team!). - December 2012: They are now more strict about Tor. Middle nodes should be fine. However, if planning to host an exit, you might want to check if your desired exit policy is fine with them.
