There is nothing better than having an access to a virtual computer or server that you can use in any way you want. Whenever people read about offshore hosting, they think that they only need these services if they have a major company. The truth is that anyone can use these hosting services, even if they have no business that needs online services. For those who are interested in these hosting services for personal use, you should know that you can use these virtual operating systems for anything at all. The company providing you with the service does not care what you do on your virtual OS and hard drive.
You can download large files, install programs and use any operating system that you think is going to fit your needs better. Whether you prefer Windows, Mac or Linux, you can install these operating systems on the virtual server that is provided to you. It is also possible to get hard drives of various sizes, depending on how many files you want to download and store on the hard drive. You can also ask the company if it is okay for you to torrent or download files with usenet, but it is generally not an issue, because the hosting service provider does not care what you are downloading.
In the days of our internet privacy being so limited, having an offshore server or OS that you can use for your daily activities is a great way to maintain your privacy. From a business point of view, it is a much better idea to use your offshore server instead of having to spend thousands of dollars on the computers you are going to need to keep a server active. These offshore servers are a lot cheaper, because you only have to pay $20 to $50 a month.
