    I wouldn't mind backing up website database and non replaceable files.

    Hey @Bryan? How much do you pay for offsite storage VPS hosting? Because I found a special from another provider for a bit under $100 for three years for 2TB KVM VPS.... If you want it let me know, I won't say the name in public so you don't lose business. :)

    I should start using the storage now... and backup everything compressed (it's small space D: ) to that server. :D

    I pay a lot more than that! LOL!! I put everything on dedicated boxes, so it isn't terribly cheap. I would definitely love to know if you want to PM me the name, though I'm not sure I would trust a 2TB VPS for $2.77/mo. I wouldn't expect a viable 20GB VPS for that price, to be honest. :)

    Figured you pay way more, looked at the site your hosting this at and I just closed it after because I didn't like the price. I'll send it to you right now.

    ok.. I know I'm late to this thread... with my momma's surgery having kept me away and well... Poseidon chose to fart on us ( can I say fart? if not moderate me plz.. I need moderation sometimes :) ) and we're still cleaning up the mess...

    I have a question... first off is this even still an option?

    From what I've read..
    1. I understand this is 10GB of storage space
    2. sshd is running... so can use the SSH/SFTP protocol to file transfer
    3. ftpd is running... so u can use the FTP protocol to file transfer
    4. You don't want people to wastefully take up accounts ( understandable )
    ( I'm sure I missed something, but like momma used to tell me.. "there are no stupid questions" )

    ok ok.. multiple questions:
    • Can someone run custom solutions like.. idk.. ownCloud, or git.. ( essentially backup/storage related.. idk off top of my head )
    -- or --
    • Is your focus to have in place something more geared towards creating an off-site backup solution to compliment the current services.. like the VPSs or Webservers? ( I assume this )
    also..
    • What options/clients/solution currently exists on the 'webserver' erm.. server :).. that can make use of this? I typically would cron job a bash script on a vps to [ gzip >> gpg >> scp ] the stream to the backup server. ( I'm having serious connection issues so I really really apologize if the answer is obvious from cpanel )

    Well you do have ssh access, well sorta, Bryan jailed us all to our user directories and I guess probably limited the stuff we can run on it, but you could try do run something on it, if it didn't require root and Bryan doesn't find out/doesn't care.

    Bryan did say that he doesn't mind what you use it for (probably excludes illegal stuff). Probably is mainly for backing up the data from the services we have here, but I was able to access it from my desktop and another VPS I have that's not from here.

    I remember seeing a backup option on cpanel that allows you to transfer data via scp or ftp to a remote server, you can backup directly from cpanel to the backup server in Dallas for web hosting, but not sure if you can schedule it.

    You pretty much nailed it Joe. It's mainly for backing up hosting content, though you could really use it to store whatever. I don't exactly go through peoples' accounts and see what they're hosting. :D :D

    As far as scripts, pretty much whatever you can run on shared hosting here, you can run there, with one major exception. Port 80 is blocked, so that people aren't tempted to use that space as a 2nd hosting account and bog the server down. It's RAID 60 opposed to 10, and obviously not SSD, so Disk I/O would potentially become a factor, etc.

    Yes! cPanel should allow you to schedule it.

    Is port 443 blocked too? If not, I could use it as a web hosting account anyway... Just use Cloudflare to redirect to https.

    All the ports are blocked except those needed for SSH, FTP, etc.

    ok.. now I'm more comfortable with storing my 'a la Weiner' selfies.. ty

    I won't beg for an instance yet... I want to finish setting up the vps first.. have something to backup

    If it were open.. you would still require a tcp daemon to serve out the files... and we all would have to contend with the non practical wear/tear of minimum 8 mech HDs vs performance.

    I'd just as well run an in-home instance off of a usb thumb drive.

    And to be honest, if you really need another 10GB of space for hosting: http://www.instafree.com/community/index.php?account/upgrades

    With most sites, you would never have the need for 20GB of space, unless it was images or music or videos or such. Heck, even this site with all the cats and weiners is less than 1GB. :p

    When the last interview for Bryan Fan Club was made, he had no pets. If he has now, I will need to update the interview. :p
