|I reside in the United States. It's pretty well known the age to have the legal capacity to enter a contract is 18.|
However, after a glance of the legal bit of the many services I use, almost all of them require you to be 18, in the US. The consequence for many of the services discovering your breach of the TOS is an immediate termination.
For SoftLayer, they explicitly state you must be at least 18 at the time of your contract, otherwise your services will be terminated.
Amazon AWS, Linode, 6sync, also follow the same patterns, although they may be lax on enforcement.
This is just a friendly reminder to the minors on HN, and for me. Don't host anything you cannot afford to lose on those services and others.
As for me, I prefer to stay anonymous with my ventures and personal information online. I cannot afford having my parents signing up on behalf of me.
