    Hello there, I am new here and just submitted an application for VPS hosting. I am sorry, I am a kind of newbie. I am looking for a remote solution that runs scripts on a regular basis (for instance, every 4 hours). The scripts to be run are python scripts that will collect data through a websocket and record them in csv files, that I then intend to retrieve once in a while. I have not provided any domain name as I don't have one. I do not intend to setup a website. Please, do you offer solution for this kind of need? Is a domain name needed for that? I thank you in advance for your reply and support. Have a good afternoon. Best regards,

    Hello,

    As has been said, we require a paid domain name for VPS, regardless of the use. I'm assuming some sort of website scraping or such is being done by the script? If so, that will not work, as we do not want our IPs blacklisted.
