Recently, Internet users discovered an interesting bug on gitpod that allows you to download Windows/Ubuntu packages and create free VPS . This is a pretty serious error, so I think gitpod will fix it as soon as possible. In this post, I’ll show you “How to create VPS Windows 10/Ubuntu Free”. If you try following the article and it doesn’t work, it means that gitpod has already fixed this error.
Gitpod is a free and open-source Kubernetes application that can quickly and easily build new, automated developer environments for each work in the cloud. It enables you to construct immediate, remote, and cloud-based development environments straight from your browser or desktop IDE. It also enables you to describe your developer environment in code form.
Request to creat VPS
To create a Windows 10 and Ubuntu Free VPS, you need:
- The first is an account at gitpod.io and ngrok.io
- Create an account and download VNC Viewer (Windows)
- Remote Desktop Connection (ubuntu) is available on Windows 7 through 11.
How to create VPS for free
First of all, you need to create an account on gitpod.io and log in to the account you just created.
Next you need to create a new workspace by clicking “New Workspace” or using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + O .
You can choose any workspace, but in this article I will choose python-django.
So it’s ready. Next I will guide you to create VPS Windows 10 and Ubuntu for free.
How to create VPS for free in Windows 10
Step 1: You see a console in the screen’s bottom corner. To end the current process and return to the command entry, choose the Terminal tab and press Ctrl + Z.
Step 2: Next, type the following commands one at a time:
sudo su wget -O winlite10.sh https://raw.githubusercontent.com/a2nk/G-cloud/main/winlite10.sh?utm_source=google,+gitpod,+linggahosting,+github,+ngrok > /dev/null 2>&1 chmod +x winlite10.sh ./winlite10.sh
Step 3: At this step, you go back to ngrok page here to get the token.
Step 4: After that, paste the ngrok token you just copied into the gitpod tab.
Step 5: Hold on while gitpod downloads the file. The terminal on the gitpod page will appear as shown in the illustration below once the download is finished. Please make a copy of the location’s address.
Step 6: You paste this address into VNC Viewer and proceed to connect to VPS.
If it shows a warning like the image below, click “Continue” .
You have therefore established a successful connection to the VPS. This VPS’s configuration consists of 2core and 8gb. This VPS, in my opinion, is rather sluggish, but it also meets some brothers’ gentle demands.
Do not close the gitpod tab, please. To keep the VPS operating, you must keep the gitpod tab open in the background since if you close it, the VPS will also crash. This VPS can be used for up to 50 hours, which is quite a bit.
How to create VPS for free in Unbutu
The steps to create an Ubuntu VPS are similar to creating a Windows 10 VPS. But only in the installation command and how to connect.
Step 1: Type the following commands into Terminal on the Gitpod tab:
sudo su wget -O ubuntu.sh https://raw.githubusercontent.com/a2nk/G-cloud/main/ubuntu.sh?utm_source=google,+facebook,+linggahosting,+github,+ngrok > /dev/null 2>&1 chmod +x ubuntu.sh ./ubuntu.sh
Step 2: Paste the ngrok token into Terminal.
Step 3: Type ap and press Enter.
Step 4: Step 4: Once the installation is finished, the Terminal window will display the results as displayed below. The address is copied into the RDP Address line.
Step 5: Then paste this address into Remote Desktop Connection on Windows and click “Connect” .
f it shows a warning like the image below, select “Yes” .
And this is the Ubuntu VPS we just created. The configuration of this VPS includes 16core 64gb VRAM 380gb. Much less lag than a Windows VPS but not very smooth. The time limit to use VPS is 50 hours.
Note: Do not turn off the Gitpod tab. Must maintain that tab for VPS to work.
In this post, I will show you a way to create VPS Windows 10/Ubuntu Free for free. I hope this post is useful.
