So, now that we’ve covered the topic of actual sneaker servers. It’s time we talk about the different types of servers that can actually help make your copping game better.
There are different types of everything: types of sneaker bots, types of proxies, and even different types of retailers. The ones you choose could make or break your copping results. If you pick the wrong type of server, you might end up with an unstable, lagging bot! Just like if you choose the wrong proxies, you could get banned!
Therefore, we’ve got two of the best types of servers that we recommend you check out. They will definitely help you with all your copping needs!
Best Types of Servers
Sneaker servers are not all the same – naturally. But, even though there are TONS of unstable and unreliable servers out there; there are TWO types that actually work! These include Pay-As-You-Go servers and Prepaid servers. And, to decide which types of servers you need, you have to check:
– Your budget
– Technical needs
– Copping goals
#1 Amazon Web Services (AWS)
One of the most reliable types of servers is Amazon Web Services. Some of its features include:
- Reliable, affordable, and flexible
- A standard server cost of $1 – $2 per hour (depending on the specs)
- Ability to generate multiple servers to run several bots
- No limit to the number of servers generated
- Pay-as-you-go pricing model

So, you’d have to resort to asking your cook group about such matters. Check out this list of the best cook groups to join!
#2 Google Cloud Platform (GCP)
Another widely used server provider is Google Cloud Platform. Its features include:
- Reliable and affordable
- Around $1-2 per hour per server
- You get $300 of free server credit upon sign up
- A limited number of server generation
- Pay-as-you-go pricing model
We’d recommend you using GCP to save yourself a lot of money if you’re on a strict budget starting out! But, you won’t have as much flexibility, especially with creating multiple servers. Click here to learn more about setting up the Google Cloud Platform.
Both AWS and GCP offer great servers for botting. They offer good speed and performance but generally, in the sneaker bot community, AWS is considered slightly more reliable.
Prepaid Sneaker Servers
Types of servers also include prepaid sneaker servers for sneakerheads who plan to use their server for long durations. You pay a fixed fee at the beginning of the month and you get it 24/7 for the entire month.
One of the issues with a prepaid server is you have to pay the subscription fee before you get to even use it. That means if you end up not taking full advantage of the server, the pay-as-you-go server would be cheaper for you. Their features including:
- Pricing between $40 – $80 per month
- 24/7 usage throughout the entire month with no extra charge
- Suitable for Mac users with bots that don’t run on Mac OS
- Freedom to use bot without accumulating a large bill at the end of the month
In short, it really depends on you and how you use the server. If you find yourself using a server too often, then a prepaid server is a great option for you. However, if you’re using a server a handful of times during a month, then pay-as-you-go servers would save you money.
Iced Out Servers
There are many types of servers and server providers in the sneaker community. But, one that particularly stands out is Iced Out Servers.
Iced Out offers very competitive prices to its servers while still being reliable and flexible. We are not affiliated with nor sponsored by them. But, we gotta speak some facts here! If they’re good, we gotta give them props!
That being said, use the code “ICEDOUTSERVERS” for 20% off any of its server plans.
There are many great providers out there so definitely don’t feel limited to using Iced Out only. Feel free to ask around and explore other options. Usually, cook groups partner up with server providers to offer their members discounts on server packages. So, definitely consider taking advantage of that if you are part of a cook group.
What to Look For?
So, the best types of servers are the best for two reasons: CPU and RAM in addition to internet speed and stability. Here’s what you should look for:
- A server with around 8 GB CPUs and at least 12GB RAM.
- Or a server with 16 CPUs and 20GB RAM or higher.
However, when you’re starting out, you won’t find yourself using anything close to that as it would simply be overkill. A bigger server doesn’t mean better chances of copping on a release. Be smart and efficient! Find the type of server that works best for your needs!
