- Yes it is possible
- No you shouldn't do it
- Yes the VPS owner will probably kick you off for abusing server resources.
- You might make a few cents per month. Not even like a whole dollar or anything.

it's good to see the same questions after so long, at least this is lee obvious than the people asking about the Amazon cloud services with the nvidia chip.

I agree we should sticky this. One question though, is Litecoin mining on a VPS' CPU also a bad idea? Gaming servers (VPS) use 100% CPU a lot of the time, I don't see what the problem is.

It's the same thing as bitcoin mining in terms of CPU % usage, just a different algorithm. I doubt a game server actually runs at 100% 24/7, and of you can find a host that will allow that, then have at it. I actually used AWS EC2 with Litecoin and fired up a dozen high-CPU instances at once, but the coin generated didn't even pay for 1/100th of the cost to run the instances.
