    torrent downloading/seeding, we can install linux torrent client and download/upload files in high speed
    remote desktop, we can install VNC server and desktop software on a VPS to use it like non stop running computer/workplace
    private encrypted proxy, any linux VPS can be used as an socks proxy so one can access internet more securelly.
    backup space, use it as an backup medium, data can be transfered via SCP client, FTP...
    game server - hosting an application for online multiplayer gaming like Minecraft, Counter Strike, L4D2
