    Set up your own OpenVPN server on Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, CentOS or Arch Linux. (by angristan)

    Nothing stops the VPS provider from just logging your traffic though, even if only to enforce their acceptable use policy. https://www.pivpn.io/ runs on any recent Debian & Ubuntu install, including VPS, if you prefer other OS either https://github.com/angristan/openvpn-install or https://github.com/Nyr/openvpn-install should work. Usually, your OS, VPS configuration and service-level firewall then need to be configured to open the port for traffic.
