> One of the Tor BSD Diversity Project's recent activities is to aggregate
> a list of *BSD VPS and similar services that allow Tor to be run as a
> server/daemon.
> While we are personally bare-metal advocates, we understand that for a
> variety of reasons VPS-type systems provide a low-barrier of entry to
> run a Tor relay for many. VPS providers also ease the ability for extend
> geographical diversity.
> Over the past several months we accumulated a list of BSD VPS/shell/etc
> providers, and are looking to populate further.
> https://github.com/torbsd/torbsd.github.io/blob/master/docs/bsd-vps.md
> The current list mostly contains providers that offer English-language
> web sites, but that will change soon as among the three of us we cover a
> good number of other languages.
> Ultimately, this list might be added/updated with the (misnamed?)
> GoodBadISPs list
> (https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/doc/GoodBadISPs).
> While certainly *any* VPS-type provider that allows the Tor server to
> run is worth more investigation, we are specifically looking at those
> that provide some sort of BSD Unix support only. I think the Tor Project
> would be happy with more contributions to the trac list.
> On that note, any additions or comments can be directed to me offlist,
> or via GitHub.
> In the near future, we can post to Tor-Talk the email text we are
> sending to providers which others might find useful for related purposes.
