Having your own server can be useful in a log of ways.. Setup your bittorrent client and the server to save bandwidth at home (and nasty letters) or setup a VPN or proxy to tunnel your traffic through the server (useful for anonymizing your traffic of make it look like your from some other country – Netflix?)
There are tons of companies offering all kind of servers and types in all price ranges. Here are a few good choices:
Dedicated Server: (good for torrenting with great speed and price)
VPS (Virtual Private Server): (great for VPN’s and proxies.. just pick your country)
- Crissic.net have servers in florida.. great speed and great support
