uProxy now supports private cloud servers!

We’re excited to announce that you can now launch your own cloud server completely from within uProxy! Many users want to bypass filtering but don’t have a friend they can proxy with. Others would like to share access but can’t leave their computer on to make sure it’s available when their friends need it. Cloud servers help to meet both these needs. Users can deploy a cloud server, connect to it, and share it, all from within uProxy. Unlike with conventional VPNs, only you and people you authorize can connect to a server you create, and because they're not shared publicly, these servers are challenging for censors to detect and block. This model makes cloud servers an extension of uProxy’s existing network of private, trusted proxies.

We currently support automatically deploying servers on DigitalOcean, using their $10 per month plan. DigitalOcean has datacenters in Europe, Asia, and North America, so most users should be able to choose a location that’s close to them. In the future, we plan to add support for more cloud hosting companies and lower cost virtual machines, so stay tuned for those updates. In the meantime, if you’d like to run uProxy on an existing server, you should be able to adapt our instructions from a previous post.

Currently, Cloud support is released for Chrome only. We expect to release on Firefox in a day or two, after Firefox completes their review process.

Update (2016-04-15): Firefox review is finally complete. Check out private cloud support in the latest uProxy for Firefox today!
