For the basic server setup, we will need 1 VPS, and 1 domain with 3 additional IPs.
Virtual Private Server (VPS)
The configuration of the VPS server should be as follows.
RAM: >= 2 GB. Server Space: >= 40GB
Operating System: Linux Distribution: CentOS 7 (64bit)
Root access should be needed for this server setup.
We suggested OVH servers since it is comparatively economical.
Moreover, apart from cost the main reason for using is that the OVH is quite lenient toward bulk mailing compared to others, and also they are providing additional IPs without any justification, usually, the other providers may ask the purpose of additional IPs and they won't provide it for bulk mailing.
Please use the following link for purchasing the OVH server.

Use the following configuration while ordering your server.
Select the Datacenter. (Location of the server as per your choice)
Click on Next, and order your server.
Kindly Note: You have to create your account in OVH first and please provide the correct details since they might ask for the government ID and address proof to verify your identity.
You can take any (.com) domain for this server setup if you already have a spare domain so that we can use that one or else you can buy a new one from Godaddy.
Do not use your existing domain (on which your website is already running), since we need to use that domain in the server setup and also we need to install the web application on this new domain, so if any website will be running on it, will be affected by these changes.
Although you can use your existing domain while sending emails to your contacts list.
VPS comes with one default IP and we will need 3 additional IPs for this setup.
You can purchase additional IPs, once your OVH VPS account will be set up by the OVH team.
OVH Control Panel –> Bare Metal Cloud --> IP Tab –> Order an IP.
After clicking on Continue my order, one order number will be generated. Click on that order and you can pay for the IPs there. Your IPs will be ready by the OVH team in a few hours.
We will need the following details for your server setup.
a) Domain control panel details: (Username and password)
b) OVH control panel details: (Username & password)
c) Root access of your server.
