Registering a VPS

Hosting your node

You will need an Ubuntu VPS to host your node to allow you to be part of the testnet.

I personally recommend keeping it nice and cheap for the testnet but that does not mean going under specification!

Check out for the screen below so you can choose a VPS. The Best Choice below will meet the requirements of the testnet no problem whilst also not burning a hole in your pocket.

NOTE: VPS from Vultr for the same specification can be as much as $80 per month so it pays to shop around.

For MAINNET see the tab below

The requirements are: Ubuntu 18.04 or 20.04 LTS x64 VPS, 320 GB SSD, 6 CPU, 16 GB RAM, 5 TB bandwidth

Registering a VPS for Testnet

I'll take you through everything from buying the VPS to setting it up, lets go.

Now you can take a break while your VPS is provisioned. This can take a few hours but may be sooner. You will be emailed once the VPS is ready.
