SporeStack

Infrastructure made simple

Deploy VPS servers with Bitcoin. Anonymous, no account needed. Purely API driven.

Libraries

Python: pip install sporestack

Give it a try

In your terminal:

$ ssh-keygen # If you don't have an SSH key already.
$ pip install sporestack # pip is the Python package manager. Python 2 or 3 both work.
$ sporestack spawn -h # See help.
$ sporestack options # See available operating systems, flavors, and regions.
$ sporestack spawn --days 3 --osid 230 --dcid 1
# Or if you want to launch a server over tor using the Hidden Service.
$ torsocks sporestack --endpoint http://spore64zke3ofvbp.onion spawn

Or in your browser (with pre-configured launch profiles)

Implementation examples

Abuse

Report malicious activity. Could be SPAM, DDoS, etc. Should see a PTR record pointing back to (uuid).node.sporestack.com, with a corresponding forward A/AAAA record. Send in packet captures. More details are better. Give 24 hours for a response. Understand that these servers tend to have short lifetimes as it is. Complaints about servers with content that bothers you but is not illegal in the server's region will be ignored.

If you have a server that gets flagged by a legitimate complaint it will likely be shut down or deleted. As this is an anonymous system, there's no way to reach out to affected customers (at least yet). But investigation will be done and likely no bogus reports will result in any issues.

Generally speaking, most common spam and DDoS happens from free hosting accounts (post-paid or coupon). SporeStack is pre-paid with Bitcoin (can reduce fraud) and has no coupons. The profit margins on DDoS and spam are almost certainly too low to demand the cost of hosting here and they will go elsewhere.
