Proxy sites allowed on VPS?

On VPS and Dedicated Servers, they are allowed.

On shared hosting, they are not.

I'd recommend blocking common webmail url's if running a proxy and you'll need to be on top of any abuse complaints.

Why webmail URLs?

And complaints from who? I'll be using the server myself, no one else will have access.

Thanks.

I thought it was going to be a public type proxy site.

In that case, you can disregard the abuse / webmail blocking above.

Sorry, the proxy site will be public, I meant the server admin/hosting will only be accessed by me. I'm just not sure what you mean by complaints, from who?

In the past I've seen some proxy sites get abuse complaints like:

1) forum spam
2) webmail spamming (ie logging into hotmail.com / yahoo webmail)
