Reorganizing the list

The fight to be on top of the list on this page is disappointing. I think the page is already in need of reorganization; perhaps we can sort it by actual popularity. Suggestions? --Taras (talk) 00:58, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

just keep it alphabetized and ban anyone who tries to jump the line :) Nanotube (talk) 20:34, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Adding IPv6

Support for IPv6 is a very important transition, both for TOR, and for general internet connectivity.

  • In Oct 2012, support for TOR clients connecting to relays as well as relays publishing IPv6 addresses and accepting clients connecting over IPv6 had been implemented.
  • By Jan 2013, support for exiting to IPv6 destinations had been implemented.

Please see the [TOR on IPv6 roadmap] for additional details regarding TOR and IPv6.

Using, I've tested for accessibility to each provider's homepage via IPv6. The following is proposed for satisfying a yes listing critera:

  • must report a valid AAAA record for provider's homepage.
  • must be able to load the provider's homepage via IPv6.

Request for deletion

I nominate this page for deletion. Reason: Nobody is willing to frequently update it. It's completely useless and misleading. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Chmod755 (talkcontribs)

Agreed, though my reason is more that this isn't directly Bitcoin-related. At best it's a list of VPS providers that accept Bitcoin - in which case, would we also be listing every flower store, restaurant, etc. that accepts Bitcoin? I feel that other sites are more suitable for that purpose (including e.g. OpenStreetMaps' data) TheRealSteve (talk) 15:11, 3 April 2015 (UTC)
Also agreed... This page was more useful when it was first created, but nowadays it is somewhat difficult to find a VPS that doesn't accept bitcoin. It's become an annoying advertising convention since then. I guess we'll wait a few days to see if there are any objections. Taras (talk) 22:48, 3 April 2015 (UTC)
