ELECTROHAXZ Virtual Colocation


You donate your device resources for mirror file hosting and get a free VPS hosted on our enterprise grade hardware!



By signing up for this service, you don't pay any money for your VPS. In exchange for a VPS, you allow us to use one of your unused devices (such as phones, tablet, laptops, desktops, etc) for mirror file hosting.

The device must meet or exceed the minimum requirements listed below and must be connected to the internet, kept near your router (if using WiFi), and connected to power at all times.

The specs your VPS will have will depend on the specs of the device(s) which you choose to donate the resources of for virtual colocation.

Please note that your projects/VPS are NEVER hosted on your device, you get a VPS in exchange for the resources donated.


Disclaimer: We are not responsible for any damages to your device of any kind. All devices are treated with care and no illegal programs/scripts/software are ever used, though in some rare cases a hardware failure can occour from hosting on consumer grade hardware.


Please note we DO NOT accept datacenter/hosting connections, virtual machines, trials from other providers, or temporary servers.



What your devices are used for



Devices with open ports

What we do

These devices are used for mirror file hosting to provide a better and faster downloading experience to our users. All of the files we mirror are 100% legal, free, and publically available (often open source) projects.

These devices may also be used for the same purpose as devices without open ports, if sufficient resources are available.


What we don't do

We NEVER under any circumstances use your devices or network for ANY illegal, malicious, or otherwise harmful purposes such as illegal torrents, sharing pirated or copyrighted content without the owner's consent, or for any unlawful purpose! We will also NEVER intentionally collect, view, store, transmit, sell, or log ANY personal data or information on your device, in fact, we REQUIRE all mirror devices to be reset to remove your personal data from them if they are to be used with our VCO mirror program.

We NEVER allow or provide public access to your device. Rest assured your device and network are safe.



Devices without open ports

What we do

These devices are used to view webpages for market research, ad-fraud prevention, brand protection, pricing intelligence, travel fare aggregation, and SEO monitoring services by our trusted e-commerce, advertising, and web intelligence partners to provide a better internet. Our partners use your device to compare SEO web stats, do price comparisons, and content delivery across many parts of the world. These are 100% legal practices conducted by our partners in an effort to better the internet.


What we don't do

We NEVER under any circumstances use your devices or network for ANY illegal, malicious, or otherwise harmful purposes such as illegal torrents, sharing pirated or copyrighted content without the owner's consent, or for any unlawful purpose! We will also NEVER intentionally collect, view, store, transmit, sell, or log ANY personal data or information on your device, in fact, we REQUIRE all mirror devices to be reset to remove your personal data from them if they are to be used with our VCO mirror program.

Our partners ALWAYS conform to the same privacy and security practices we do and are closely monitored to ensure this. We respect your privacy, so do our partners. We wouldn't have it any other way. If this ever changes, we'll cease operations with them immediately and inform you of so.
