VPN Services

Friends,

Given how popular VPNs are today, it is difficult to find one that has reasonably acceptable IP scores (enough not to get prompted by Google every time I search).

Can anyone provide recommendations for VPNs with decent IP scores? Please nothing 'mainstream'.

Sincerely,
Fyyre

There are two basic choices at this day and age. One is a dedicated IP VPN, something many VPN service providers are selling. Second would be to just get a virtual private server that allows tunneling. If you want to change locations it's not as easy though. Amazon is probably the biggest service for this with wide coverage and good management tools but they come at a significant cost.

Scoring systems for everything even phone numbers are making things pretty tough nowadays.

Unfortunately, anything posted here in the open is bound to get the IP blacklisted very fast!
But generally, a dedicated VPN created from a VPS with a clean IP is the best bet.

Hi chants!

Thanks for the reply =)

I've made AWS accounts, used Lightsail server + Linux + OpenVPN in the past, these work very well... however, yes the cost and personal attribution makes this problematic.

Seems like the state of affairs is just that.

I appreciate the insight!

Thanks @th3tuga. A personal VPS is the way to go. What is the best way to set up the VPN on a VPS? Any suggestions?
@Fyyre Most of the AWS IPs are blacklisted by now. They used to work in the past. Not so clean anymore.

I will suggest go with Vultr. They have cheap linux VM with dedicated ip ($5) if you want to. I use it for hosting small applications. Been solid service and uptime.

Vultr and DigitalOcean already abused too much. Most of the IPs from there are already blacklisted. So not much of use for VPN. Already tried.
Should be okay for hosting though.

What about providers of ShadowSocks, Trojan, V2Ray, Clash, etc.. ? Any of these have clean IPs?

Any MaaS that provides good IPs? =P

We should start a "rent your IP address" business. Basically if having a legitimate looking IP address has value to it, then obviously large providers will be quickly identified in today's world. But if there were a convenient way to share your IP for others traffic, while you share their IP, that would be pretty much an endgame for this little non-clean IP detection cottage industry. Basically if you could pay/get paid and run some sort of balance by using/providing a VPN with your own bandwidth in some pool of individual users, that could at least get interesting to decentralize from the VPN model.

What about Tor? Are Tor exit nodes IPs clean?

This was tried in the past.
Users abused the IPs immediately by using them for commiting financial crimes and for sharing some highly illegal stuff like CSAM.
Of course, the authorities ended up arresting the original owners of the IPs rather than the criminals who "rented" and abused them.

A very bad idea for the renters.
I got into very serious trouble with the law enforcement at one point when I unwittingly did something similar.
