If you should win a VPS, what are you planning to do with it?

#1
Just wondering what your objectives are for getting a VPS? What are you planning to do with it?
#2
I do a lot with work flow and application release automation engines and travel to places to teach techniques. Currently I have them installed on my laptop which isn't ideal because of resources and availability. I want to setup a cloud based sandbox that I can use to demo things with and allow access during the class time for others to login. I also want build some RESTful webservices with Node.JS and try interfacing some other applications through that.
#3
Actually wanting a VPS server for Laravel and composer but it is costly.

I wanted to make a website that can help the community, like a free job board., or community that shares codes online, or images that are not licensed.

I wish VPS server will be granted to me.

anyone can help?

I would use it for hosting stuff like discord bots.
#5
Plan to use one for pent testing to find security flaws on it and work to patch them for my home machine later as well as have it host various small servers for such things as monitoring software.

For a new project which is a website for a news magazine. Also for some more personal projects. And using a VPS actually costs very expensive. Lucky to have Gigarank's support beside.

I coiuld use it for like 5 different things
#8
Mainly for running my marketing softwares
#9
I love to experiment with things. Whether it be a thing I think I came up with, or even things that are well established such as DNS clusters or even proxy networks. I love to just mess around in linux and see what I can make it do on the information super highway

I am a forex trader and has developed several trading strategies.
If I win a VPS, I will use it to run my trading strategies!
#11
Well I currently have 4 vps's and am actually planning on buying a single rack, but if I could win one, I'd just put all my currently hosted stuff onto it (:

Just wondering, why not just rent a VPS? They aren't that expensive, compared to the money you can make if your strategies are succesful.

Just out of curiousity, what did you base them on? Some rules, with pattern recognition, when this happens, buy, if that happens, sell? Or did you use machine learning to train models that are now mature?

Or is it just following the orders from several well known forex traders that show their trades on their blogs?

I do alot of R&D with on DEBIAN to improve our systems, however, the company does not give budget for pet projects , so a free VPS would be awesome

I play to use it as:

a) a monitoring "satellite" for our monitoring system (we have them around the world to test connectivity stuff)
b) a development / testing part of our CDN setup

Simply, no... 
It's the first rule, and marked with red on Prohibited Use list under Gigarank VPS Terms and Conditions

I've spent all my money on my "Audio Wave" software that now i have no money to host it, and my co-founder just moved so I'm despertly trying to find free trials so we can make some cash to get a dedicated server online. The activitiy is/will be super low until january since i'm just demonstrationg to investors right now our facebook page is Audio Wave https://www.facebook.com/audiowaveproduct/
It's a Spotify Competitor, It's "Spotify for Independant Artists and Listeners"

if i win vps, i will make it for learning, because i dont have much money to buy a personal vps in another website, i hope i can win in gigarank. Angel

I would use it for gaming purposes such as game server. Because of the functionality of a VPS server I wouldn't use it for personal web hosting for example, there is soo much free services for that and it would be a waste of a VPS.
