hey @switchingsocial@mastodon.at, maybe this question doesn't belong here... I have a VPS running tinc and nextcloud

any service recommendation of alternatives (like Linode, Dreamhost) not based in the U.S., with focus on privacy?

@mdkcore @switchingsocial There are many hosters outside of US.Some have trackers on their pages but the vServers should be safe.Some examples:
- hetzner.com (Germany)
- contabo.de (Germany)
- ovh.com (France)
- online.net (France)

@nipos @switchingsocial@mastodon.at cool!, will look for them!

@mdkcore @switchingsocial I use altushost.com in the Netherlands because they have good privacy law there. You can pay with crypto as well.

@aran @switchingsocial@mastodon.at pretty good, privacy is what I'm looking for!

@mdkcore
@OpenBSDAms might be a good choice, if you were wanting to run an OpenBSD virtual.
@switchingsocial

@bill @OpenBSDAms @switchingsocial@mastodon.at yup, linux or openbsd, no problem at all, thanks!

@mdkcore @switchingsocial Friends of mine use Hetzner and Netcup, but they don't seem to be explicitly privacy focused

@frainz @switchingsocial@mastodon.at will find about them, thanks :)

@mdkcore
try mullvad. they support wireguard, which is basically the most secure vpn protocol

mullvad.net

@wiley nice! I want to move from tinc to wireguard, so this can be a great deal!

@mdkcore id also recommend checking this out; it's a pretty comprehensive evaluation of many vpn clients. widely circulated as well

@LiFux @switchingsocial@mastodon.at cool, will look at this :)
