Bulletproof servers are costly dedicated servers that come with immunity provided by a hosting provider. The name ‘bulletproof’ implies that under no circumstances will the server cease from working, not even by bullets, so to speak. It is protected from any kind third-party intervention that disagrees with the content/operations that are hosted on the server. If a hosting provider offers bulletproof dedicated servers, it ensures the client that it will stay online, regardless of the pressure posed upon the host.
This risk placed upon the host as well as the extra security measures taken are what make bulletproof servers 2 a 3 times more expensive than regular servers.
Although the bulletproof niche has a negative connotation with many people, since it attracts hackers, phishers, and sellers of illegal products, it does not specifically target these clients.
You can say that WikiLeaks is run on bulletproof servers, as well as big torrent websites.
Bulletproof dedicated servers are thus for people that are looking for data protection, freedom of speech, and identity privacy.

HostBP, or Hostbpinc, started back in 2014. Further little is known about them. This is not uncommon for bulletproof hosting providers. In fact, it is advised. Their website is not very user-friendly and not many people know about them. They do offer a wide variety of bulletproof hosting services, including dedicated servers, which is:
– CPU (2 core)
– 16GB RAM
– 320GB HDD
– 1 dedicated IP
– 100Mbit Tier-1 Bandwidth
– 2.1 TB traffic
While you get decent, it is overpriced, which explains their lack of popularity over the last few years.

Outlawservers was established in May, 2016. It is thus a very new bulletproof server provider, and many people interested in the bulletproof niche do not know about them.

– 16GB RAM
– 150GB Disk Space
– Unmetered Bandwidth
– 1 IP address

It is unclear what kind of bandwidth and traffic they offer, since unmetered is inaccurate. There is definitely a cap on bandwidth (either 100Mbps guaranteed or less). You can call them (+440 756 845) or email them ([email protected]).
As the name already implies, SenukeXCrHosting offers bulletproof servers that are compatible with SEO tools such as Senuke XCr, among others.

– 4 Cores x 3.40 Ghz
– 4 threads HT
– 24GB Ram
– 1TB Sata

What can we say about PBW other than their unusually explicit website? They started in 2009 and registered their bulletproof hosting business in the Seychelles Islands. They offer solutions in the Netherlands, Moldova, Russia, Ukraine, and Sweden. Their servers are fully customizable. Let’s look at one of their Dutch servers:
– Intel Xeon E3-1230
– 8GB RAM
– 1TB Disk Space
– 1 Dedicated IP
It’s great that you can customize almost everything with their dedicated servers, which means they run their own servers. But the prices are a bit on the high side. For example, they offer cPanel for $70/month while you can get it for half the price from a registered cPanel license seller.
2×4.ru is a Russian bulletproof hosting provider that has been in business since 2004. Their website is in Russian, but luckily they also have an English translation. You can find the English version in the sidebar under ‘English Menu’. This is what you get for a bulletproof dedicated server:
– Xeon E3-1230
– 16GB RAM
– 1 x 1 TB SATA
– 1Gb/s bandwidth
– 15TB traffic
Russian servers tend to provide a lot of bandwidth. In this case you get 1GB/s, which is much more than the average. The downside is that there is a 15TB cap. If you were to use around 40Mbps, it would total to around 15TB per month.
AbuseHosting is also a Russian-based bulletproof hosting provider. They have been operating since 2012. They offer bulletproof dedicated servers in Luxemburg, Switzerland, Iran, Netherlands, and Ukraine. Their Dutch E3 server comes with:

– 8GB DDR3 RAM (upgradable)
– 1000GB SATA2 HDD (upgradable)
– 30TB/month (30TB)
– 1Gbps Uplink
