Automate buying VPS instances with Bitcoin

Project description

Build Status Cloudomate logo

Overview

Cloudomate is an unpermissioned open compute API which provides an automated way to buy VPS instances and VPN servers from multiple providers. The easiest way to use Cloudomate is via the command-line interface.

Requirements

  • Python 2 or 3
  • Works on Linux, Mac OSX, BSD
  • An active Electrum wallet with sufficient funds

Installation

The project can be installed through pip:

pip3 install cloudomate

Providers

VPS

Currently the following VPS providers are implemented:

blueangelhost         https://www.blueangelhost.com/
linevast              https://linevast.de/
twosync               https://ua.2sync.org/
undergroundprivate    https://undergroundprivate.com/
proxhost              Proxmox provider emulation

This same list can be accessed through the list command:

cloudomate vps list

VPN

Currently the following VPN providers are implemented:

azirevpn       https://www.azirevpn.com

This same list can be accessed through the list command:

cloudomate vpn list

Compatibility

The stability of cloudomate depends on its ability to read and fill in registration forms on the provider webpages. Not all providers offer the same forms and differ in functionalities (user may not be able to send their chosen root password during registration). The following table depicts the current state of the providers that have been implemented in Cloudomate.

Provider Type Compatible Control panel ClientArea Email parsing Rootpassword Settings Notes
BlueAngelHost vps yes   extended yes from email   >12h purchase processing
TwoSync vps yes   extended yes from email TUN/TAP TUN/TAP on by default
UndergroundPrivate vps yes   default   registration    
LineVast vps yes yes extended yes registration TUN/TAP TUN/TAP enabling implemented
AzireVPN vpn yes   none   registration    
CCIHosting vps no   default       Gateway broken
CrownCloud vps no   default       Manual order reviews
PulseServers vps no   default       Gateway broken
ProxHost (TBTC) vps yes   none   registration TUN/TAP Emulated (ProxMox)

Incompatible providers need to be fixed in order for them to work. The providers were not removed as there is a possibility that they could be fixed later on.

Control panel is the added feature for some providers, allowing Cloudomate to change settings such as TUN/TAP for VPN. The control panel could be further implemented to be able to change more settings.

ClientArea The client area contains general information such as the VPS’ IP address and access to emails.

Email parsing With extended ClientAreas, emails can be parsed to gain access to the control panel.

Configuration

For some commands, mainly purchase, user configuration is required. The main way to do this is through a configruation file. For Linux, the default location for the configuration file is $HOME/.config/cloudomate.cfg.

A configuration file looks like this:

[user]
email =
firstname =
lastname =
password =
companyname =
phonenumber =
username =

[address]
address =
city =
state =
countrycode =
zipcode =

[payment]
walletpath =

[server]
ns1 =
ns2 =
hostname =
root_password =

Section can be overridden for specific providers by adding a section, for example a [linevast] section can contain a separate email address only to be used for Linevast.

Purchase

Use the purchase command to purchase a VPS instance. An account is created and the instance is paid through an Electrum wallet.

$ cloudomate vps purchase linevast 0
Selected configuration:
Name           CPU            RAM            Storage        Bandwidth      Est.Price

Purchase this option? (y/N)

Additionally, a randomuser could be generated for a purchase:

$ cloudomate vps purchase linevast 0 –randomuser

The configuration file is stored in ~/.config/cloudomate.cfg.

For ProxHost, a server could be bought using testnet Bitcoins:

$ cloudomate vps purchase proxhost 0 –testnet
