    What's your budget?

    for hourly its 0.40$/h max, for monthly its 30$ max.

    your budget is too low. These are the only real options within your price range.

    Looking for hourly billing only (or anything that isnt a full month, daily for eg.).

    \

    I'm not looking for hosts which requires any type of ID identification. I wanted to give Scaleway a try but after I deployed a service they sent me an email asking for ID verification and locked my account, including the service, so now that service is running for 24 hours until my account gets deleted.

    Hi,

    We don't offer hourly billing, to many risks. We don't ask for ID identification if you pay through crypto.

    If you want to test the dedicated server you can contact us we have money back policy for dedicated servers.

  • Thanks for everyone's suggestion, i'll check them out more thoroughly and i'll see what will be the best for me. If there would be any other hosts from the ones previously mentioned (with a possibly cheaper pricing lol) i would be happy to give it a look.

    Do you have a citation for that?

    1. Leasing for Permitted Developer Services.
      A. Leasing. You may lease or sublease a validly licensed version of the Apple Software in its entirety to
      an individual or organization (each, a “Lessee”) provided that all of the following conditions are met:
      (i) the leased Apple Software must be used for the sole purpose of providing Permitted
      Developer Services and each Lessee must review and agree to be bound by the terms of this
      License;
      (ii) each lease period must be for a minimum period of twenty-four (24) consecutive hours;
      (iii) during the lease period, the End User Lessee must have sole and exclusive use and control
      of the Apple Software and the Apple-branded hardware on which it is installed, except that you,
      as the party leasing the Apple Software (“Lessor”), may provide administrative support for the
      Apple Software; and
      (iv) prior to using the Apple Software, the End User Lessee must review and agree to be bound
      by the terms applicable to any software preinstalled on the Apple Software, including, but not
      limited to Apple’s Xcode developer software and any other Apple or third-party software.

    it's in their TOS.

    I don't think this is really true or enforced for a lot of use cases. Github Actions has MacOS runners, which are entirely ephemeral and thus would technically violate the ToS.

    But are these runners licensed to the end user or GitHub Actions?

    If they're licensed to Github Action, then they are implicitly sublicensed to the end user if the end user is using the VM.

    No idea if this company is any good...I believe they're @LightNode here.

    https://go.lightnode.com/macos-vps

    At 1.2 cents an hour ($7.41/month), it has that "too good to be true" funk pretty strong.
    I'm guessing they're running the github posted above, not presenting genuine apple hardware.

    Here's another for $24.99/month. Never heard of them.

    Well, that's enough "macos hourly vps" googling.

    So, GitHub.

    A sublicense is a license granted by a licensee that grants some or all of the rights (as to a patent) acquired under the original license.

    to my knowledge, lightnode is an actual cloud provider so I'd assume they're just spinning up VMs on an Intel Mac Pro (which is the way to do it according to Apple TOS). it's possible they also just don't give a shit about the licensing terms tho
