Running Domain Server On Virtual Servers


I was just reading the thread on running a domain server on digitalocean and wondered if anyone has run High Fidelity on any other remote services?

I was recently reading an article by a Microsoft tech evangelist about running Open Sim on Microsoft Azure. I’m aware that there are other solutions such as Amazon and Frame with more likely to enter the market.

However the real killer is the costs and working them out, how much bandwidth is used etc. Have many people looked into these sort of services or are they too restrictive and costly?


I run mine on a VPS. I found a nearby host who was just starting out and got a good deal. If you go this route you will probably need to compile the domain server and assignment client on it (probably linux). OmegaHeron did a few pretty good write-ups on how to do this.
