Because NAT IPv4 VPS becomes popular lately, so I want to list few low end providers those are offering NAT IPv4 VPS plans. So what is NAT IPv4 VPS? Network Address Translation (NAT) is the process where a network device, usually a firewall, assigns a public address to a computer (or group of computers) inside a private network. So a VPS that’s utilizing this kind of technology is shortly understand-able as a VPS with shared IPv4. But however, most of them are still providing many IPv6 IPs.
Generally, the main use of NAT is to limit the number of public IP addresses an organization or company must use, for both economy and security purposes. In low end vps world, the main purpose of NATted VPS is also to make the price as low as possible. Shortly it’s just like any common VPS you usually bought it but it comes with Shared IPv4, not dedicated.
What can you use this kind of low end vps? Here it is few examples of what you can do with it:
- Host a website on port 80 at the IPv6 or shared IPv4
- Proxy (private, protected)
- IRC client/server
- Teamspeak server
- Anything you want with native IPv6
