The Virtual Machines must support Ubuntu Server 20.04 or 22.04, so a disposable node can be created instantly with just one command.
Although the preferred way of running Virtual Compute Station is on your own hardware, renting of Virtual Machines from compute infrastructure providers can be a good solution in some use cases.
A lot of these compute infrastructure providers have referral programs that will benefit the referrer and in some cases the referred also.
When you are helping others deploy disposable nodes, you can earn some EXTRA INCOME through these the referral programs.
Note referral programs can be complex. For example:
We are given another referral code that pays more for higher spend:
We get USD35 and the referred user get USD100 in credit, if the referred user has been active for 14+ days and has made at least USD35 in payments.
So which referrer code to use depends on the usage of individual referred customer.
Virtual Box is available on Microsoft Windows and Apple macOS, currently Virtual Box is recommended since it is free, open sourced and actively being developed and deployed.
Try to use the latest version of Virtual Box if possible, although all versions from 6.1.0 (released 2019-12-10) onwards are supported.
Installation of Ubuntu Server in your Virtual Box is preferred, but Ubuntu Desktop will also work.
