Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Is the VPS service truly free?
A: Yes, it is. We operate solely on the generous donations provided by our sponsors.

Q: Do you monitor or sell my data?
A: Absolutely not. Your activities on your VPS are completely private. However, if we notice excessive CPU usage or constant port blasting, it may lead to the involcuration of your VPS.

Q: I don't meet the eligibility requirements. Will I receive a VPS if I make a donation?
A: No, donations are intended solely to enhance the resources of your VPS and do not bypass the eligibility requirements.

Q: Why are there recurring fees of $199/$99? Doesn't that contradict the "free" aspect?
A: These fees are in place to discourage idle usage of the VPS. When your VPS is initially deployed, we add credits to your account, which can be utilized to renew your VPS tenure.

Q: Can I migrate my VPS to another location?
A: Yes, in most cases, we allow transfers. It is advisable to back up your data before making a transfer request.

Q: What are the specifications for Tokyo?
A: Please refer to the TYO announcement post. The Tokyo location operates on a donation-only basis due to limited resources and to prevent abuse.

Q: How long does it take to deploy my VPS?
A: Please allow up to 3 days for VPS deployment. FreeVPS is managed by volunteers, and deployments are carried out on a best-effort basis. However, we make every effort to deploy VPS instances on the same day of the request. If your VPS has not been deployed within a week of your request, feel free to follow up on your request.

Q: I don't meet the requirements. Is there any way to obtain a free VPS?
A: If your post history demonstrates exceptional contributions and meaningful engagement within the community, we may consider making an exception and provision a free VPS for you.

Q: Can I make a donation to a local charity?
A: Of course! You can contribute to any charity worldwide using any currency. However, it is preferable if the donation amount is equivalent to or exceeds 5 USD. If your donation receipt is not in English, please provide a translation with it. Furthermore, we kindly request that the receipt demonstrates a recent donation made within the last three months.

Q: Can I redeem the credits in USD?
A: Sure, just put a request in the thread. /s
