I personally run exits with various providers, the connectivity varies with each  but there are three I think are worth mentioning.


It's worth noting that their Romanian servers actually have unmetered bandwidth.


Good provider, unmetered traffic. Only 100Mbps though.


I have a couple of those. 1Gbps link with guaranteed 150Mbps and unmetered for €15.99 / month.

If you search for renting an already racked server I recommend to
you ViralVPS.com

Just don't be irritated by the name :-) They also have physical
dedicated server for a nice price.

In general: For 100 British Pounds excluding VAT you get

CPU: Intel Xeon E5-2603 (4C/4T @1,8 GHz)

RAM: 16 GB

Storage: 120 GB SATA3 SSD

1 GBit/s Switchport

20 TB monthly traffic included

5 IPv4 addresses

/64 IPv6-Subnet

Everything stored in a 19" Supermicro case. IPMI with chassis
intrustion detectio. The webinterface of the IPMI is only available
via OpenVPN.

I also have one of these and I'm running multiple stuff and my tor
exit relay on such a machine. ViralVPS has some racks in the
Severius Datacenter in the Netherlands.

I recommend this hoster because of the good internet connectivity.
If you really need 24/7 1 GBit/s you'll get that there without any
complaints. Of course you should plan in some more money for the
overage traffic.

Another great benefit is that you can design your harddrives as you
want. No need for RAIDs or kind of that stuff.

Another thing I want to mention is the support :-) Normally the
response time is below 30 minutes.

BTW: If this was too much advertisement I want to apologize.

I have a question. Do you mean with "to go shopping for a server"
buying hardware yourself and rent rackspace or searching for an
offer of a dedicated server?

Hi tor users, my coworkers and I are considering getting together to
run a gigabit exit relay and are curious if you all have advice as to
the best place to go shopping for a server with 1gbps dedicated
bandwidth in a location that is helpful to the network. Someone on irc
pointed me to this list, but I'm happy to ask on another if it would
be more appropriate. Thanks in advance!

Some friends and I used to run a 1GBit Reduced Exit[1] in the US at
Applied Operations[2] for $800/mo, which included hardware rental. Not
sure if that deal is still available, but they were Tor-friendly.
