    I need to do an off-site backup of about 40GB of data every 3 or 4 days using rsync.

    About 8 months ago, I managed to find a cheap ($5/month) host with ssh access and "unlimited" bandwidth and hdd space. I knew it probably wouldn't last for long before they kicked me off but I tried it anyways. It worked for 8 months before they caught on and disabled my account for "unauthorized usage". :)

    What are some other options for a host or a cheap dedicated server I could use to do site backups where I won't be violating any fine print in a TOS? :dunno:

    I was hoping to find something where I would have ssh access so I could use tools like rsync. Maybe there's an easy way to setup something similar with Amazon S3 though. :dunno:

    :cool: I'll look into it some more.


    Any suggestions on who to go with? It seems like with all the cheap plans everyone is severely limiting either hdd space or bandwidth.
