Proxy website?


#1

Would it be possible to host a proxy site? Would Dreamhost allow this?

What I mean by proxy site is something like http://hidemyass.com/.

Been a customer with you for a little while now, idea just popped into my head. But I just wanted to check with you before I go ahead.

No its not allowed to host proxy site on DreamHost. This was discussed before. See this article

MAXDH=[color=#CC0000]$97 off[/color]
[color=#00CC00]DB5=150%disk & bw $7
D82=2 domain $82, 6D7=7 domain $7
UIP67=1 IP $67
2xDS=200%disk $7 off[/color]

Any ideas to why?

Thanks for the reply btw :slight_smile:

You got your answer on my edited post. And you’re welcome.

MAXDH=[color=#CC0000]$97 off[/color]
[color=#00CC00]DB5=150%disk & bw+$7
D82=2 domain+$82, 6D7=7 domain+$7
UIP67=1 IP+$67
2xDS=200%disk+$7 off[/color]

To be honest, I don’t think the straight “no” answer is really appropriate; I once asked a DH developer whether I could install a proxy for my own use. His response was “yes, just put an .htaccess password on it.” DH doesn’t care if you run a proxy through your site for yourself; they just don’t want you offering the service to others.

Very little to do with either emus or farmers!

Right–there was another thread about this recently.

I think Tor quoted a part of the TOS that actually prohibits resource hogs, then uses proxy sites as an example–since they’re usually very busy.

No probs. Was thinking about doing it for some revenue, proxy sites get used alot as stated.

“Ok,there’s atleast one solution that don’t violate TOS…Thats good.”

Whats that? :stuck_out_tongue:

I have no idea of how much money they generate, but if it’s something you’ve looked into and think it will work, it might be worth investing in a dedicated server for it.

Letun was talking about this from emufarmers:

Unfortunately, while a “solution” for him, it doesn’t seem to help you much, if you were looking to make a proxy site publicly available. :frowning:

That’s good. Some government do block many sites and if there can be a personal proxy, it can help to view those blocked sites.
