    You can use pretty much any VPS for that, 128Mb ram is enough.

    You can try my script for setting it up (debian/ubuntu and anything else with apt):


    Will install and set it up + add your user + ask for the password while installing.

    Port will be 5000, and can be changed in /etc/squid/squid.conf like anything else (Other options are removed headers, so it is fully anonymous and not giving out your IP or anything else).

    @EDIS: thanks for the script.

    Will it ever work on shared hosting? I mean tweaking the install paths...

    No, since squid is a service and runs in background.
