>>52348663 No, You're just not applying yourself. Again, Neowin offers firesales on various VPN services. Buy a used server for like $100, buy a domain for less than a decent pizza a year, and buy as much storage as you want for $80/TB. Make 2-3 VM's on your server, one for OwnCloud (storage) one for something like postfix for email.
>>52349883 You know, thaat stuff you get from being a stupid shit, or because MS and google are whoring out your searches to spammers. Use a filter if it concerns you, but by not selling your searches while tied to an account, you vastly cut down on spam.

>>52350321 >I don't know what I am doing, so instead I will complain that it costs a lot of money to buy this, instead of learning how to use it and avoid the problems that might come with it I know that you dont know what you are doing, and i explained with my post why.
my vpn costs 3 eur/month. and it has unmetered 1 gbit servers.
just please, name me ONE VPS/dedicated server that has 1 gbit servers for 3 euro/month.
>>52350323 >I said buy a server. Not lease a VPS. BUY an ACTUAL, PHYSICAL FUCKING SERVER. .... what.
So i bought a server for lots of money, now what? Go to a foreign country, sneak into a datacenter and put it there and connect to it? what the fuck is your plan
>>52350233 Do emails get sent through non-local entanglement if you send them from your home server or something? doesn't your ISP keep logs of your connections? I don't get it. How is that more privacy-like than using a remote server hosted in some shit hole and conncting to it through an encrypted connection over Tor or the likes?
In the first place, you can use any open source messaging app with client-side encryption and avoid the hassle of hosting a damn home server and still retain the same level of privacy. Email protocol is overrated.
>>52350429 >You only see the one usage when it has many. no i see many usages for VPS, that is why i have 3 VPS myself. But i dont establish a VPN connection to any of them, because that would be fucking retarded.
>>52350382 >lots What? Dude, buy a surplussed server for a hair over $100, buy sub-$75 1TB HDD, and you will have plenty of power to host a VM running Owncloud, and another for Redmail. Buy a domain name for the cost of fast food. Get VPN access from a reputable company. You have lifetime storage, private email, and a VPN, all told for ~$250. Nowhere does a VPS enter the equation. Ever. What is your obsession with VPS? There isn't some magical connector for connecting a server to the internet. Holy fuck are you out of middle school?
>What is your obsession with VPS? There isn't some magical connector for connecting a server to the internet. Holy fuck are you out of middle school? yes there is, its called LAN. You put it in the circuit of your wall, it then connects to your ISP and they know its you. have fun browsing for kiddieporn on your home connection on your 250$ server. you sure will be secure
>>Buy a VPN get an ISP that wont bend over for law enforcement agencies (bahnhof if you're in sweden) >>Buy a Mail get mail.ru (easy sign up in english, russian company with servers in russia, no need for cellphone to register, will say fuck you to international LEA's >>Buy a Cloud Storage buy a flash drive, encrypt it and put it on your key chain (and make a backup of that flash drive and stash somewhere, might even buy 3 while you're at it)
>>52350553 There's no way in hell you'll find those services for less than 50$ a year, the cheapest VPN from the worst providers cost like 5$ a month. OP is bitching about the impossible, there's literally no way to increase your privacy for free or without relying on thir party servies.
He should give up on the email option to begin with and look into messaging software that supports client-side encryption, as I said email protocol is overrated. The storage is also another thing he should just forget, the cheapest service I ever found in my life was an overly-saturated ISP who offered 3TB storage for 20$ a month and it was shit.
>>52350578 >LAN connector >plug computer straight into wall for internet access Holy shit. Do you even networking? Re-read the OP, and my posts. Buy cheap server and domain for email and cloud storage. Pick a VPN provider for browsing for your spoiled milk pastries. These two are not tied. OP was bitching about about spending 150 Euros a month on an overpriced VPN, email, and cloud storage. I'm showing that OP can have what he wants for much less than he's anticipating. Come back when you're over 18. maybe tomorrow you'll learn about reading comprehension in school. Don't worry, if your school system isn't total shit, you'll eventually cover basic computer science.
>>52350802 >>52350817 Given I'm in the land of burgers, unless Euros are getting a good deal, best I can rough is that he's getting 1TB for a year (at 50 euros). He could get a 1TB NAS HDD for around that. Tacking on email capability requires a functioning machine, so going slightly over his €150 guarantees he can do everything he wants, until hardware dies years down the line.
>>52348478 If you see on Brian Krebs security site, most cybercriminals use mail.ru and yandex mail email accounts. Most dont get caught for those emails, but for bad opsec. Also, those companies offer 10GB of storage for free with your free account, you dont need mobile phone or shit like that to register. And obviously they dont care about western nations http://krebsonsecurity.com
>>52350696 > Re-read the OP, and my posts. Buy cheap server and domain for email and cloud storage. Pick a VPN provider for browsing for your spoiled milk pastries. These two are not tied. why would i get cloud storage if i could just buy another harddrive, which is indefinitely more secure and faster and bigger and cheaper?
>>52351006 You mean that OP could try getting a cheap VPN like PIA for 30€ a year and then download his file through it? it's probably cheap and effective but I think he needs an online storage, maybe for sharing with other people or something like that. If he encrypts his files and uses Tor to connect to any free cloud storage (eg. MEGA), tunneling through PIA (or whatever VPN he chooses), he can retain a pretty high grade of anonimity, there's literally no need for any home server or the likes.
>>52349950 >You know, thaat stuff you get from being a stupid shit, or because MS and google are whoring out your searches to spammers.
I love how /g/ always places the blame on people themselves. Your e-mail will eventually end up on many spammer lists through no fault of your own. Even if you only use a specific throwaway spam e-mail to register for things so that the frequent database leaks businesses suffer won't include your e-mail address one of your contacts is bound to get malware or install an app that harvests all their contact info which includes your e-mail.
The only reason you're not getting spam mail is either because that e-mail address is very new. Or because you don't use it for anything. Or there's very few people that contact you by e-mail.
>>52351466 >Use different throwaway email for every company >If I have to use real name/address for anything, tell them I don't own a computer and they have to do it via the post >Have no friends >Literally never received a spam email
>>52351920 only viable with; 1. a static home IP (usually obtainable for a fee if it's not already static) 2. a fast enough connection to suit your purposes (not always available) not to mention there may be high-bandwidth things you want to run without putting that load on your home connection (such as seeding)
having LAN-speed access to your server can be beneficial for certain use cases as well, though, not to mention you have quick access to the hardware and can make any hardware changes you like at any time
basically what i'm saying is, a home server is not always a replacement for a VPS, it depends on several factors
>>52350392 Wrong. Look at all the shit Vincent had to put up with recently because his servers were in Germany. US still has the toughest consumer protection laws and you're honestly way better off with a vps here.
>a 14yo kid who's on a break from leddit >notices this thread on gee >doesn't give a fuck about OP's requests >wanna brag about his shitty home-hosted seed box >tells OP to buy a server for no reason >tells him to install whatever free software he reads on the gentoo wiki >still no solution to OP's needs >spergs when others call he out his bull shit >shitposts more
>>52362156 Better software I'm not sure, as both are widely used, very lightweight, easy to configure (seriously, try configuring sendmail, it'll make you want to hurt yourself) and they're actively developed. Another popular MTA choice is Exim, or Cyrus for IMAP.
>>52362237 Exactly, which is why I listed numerous advantages, not just both being widely used. I'm also aware that 'better' can be very subjective, which is why I felt the need to list some advantages in the first place. But mind you, both software packages are not 'arcane and outdated' as you claim.
>>52362290 As the other poster claims, I just happened to chip in. Also, easy to configure is also somewhat subjective, because I've set up Postfix+Dovecot and I wouldn't exactly describe it as beginner-friendly.
>>52362358 >It's not easy to configure That has always amazed me, because both run pretty much out of the box. All you typically need to configure is the hostnames, certificates and mailbox format / locations, which is just changing a few lines.
When we're talking to configure Amavis for ClamAV and SpamAssassin, or configuring SPF, DKIM and DMARC, then it gets a little more interesting, but also very doable. But a vanilla postfix and dovecot setup every sysadmin should be able to configure, even for the first time.
>>52349771 Does everyone have lightspeed hardcore anal fiber optics Internet here? cause I don't see why you'd pay for a cloud when you can have PHYSICAL storage that's probably more reliable and transfers data much faster. Not judging those on clouds, I use Google Drive myself to move stuff around sometimes. On a big scale, I just don't see the point when you have a cheaper alternative.
