    Only point of VPS in Iran for most folks is to break the embargo/violate laws.

    I've beat the horse on this many times.   At last check if you live in the US or EU or any country that bows thereto, you aren't allowed to take money from or give your money to Iranians.

    If you want to offer free services to them and they want to in kind offer free to you, then likely is legal.

    If you're an Iranian business and are selling to locals then it makes sense to host your VPS locally in Iran.

    Copyright laws.  Iran is one of ony a handful of countries that isn't a signatory to the WIPO copyright treaty or the Berne Convention on copyrights and so there is no penalty for violating the copyrights of any non-Iranian owned intellectual property.  If you're from a country that is a signatory to copyright treaties though you're still subject to your own country's laws and hosting your pirated material in Iran isn't going to prevent you from being sued by the copyright holder.

    exoticvps.com lists several Iranian providers

    As DomainBop said, copyright. 

    As DrMike said, it's probably their way of trying to be "competitive" in a market/location that's geared against them.  If you live in the United States then here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sanctions_against_Iran

    You purchasing a service from an Iranian VPS Company = You doing business with them, which is illegal.  Just wanted to get the link in here and to be clear about this :p

    i'm from uk.

    https://www.gov.uk/sanctions-on-iran

    it appers to be oil or gold including mecinces to produce them.

    but as they say you will not get help deailing with iran.

    so it looks like it might be legal in uk.

    I think VPS deals from a2hosting.com and libertyvps.net are worth your attention because of their server stability and reliability and cheap prices.

    QHoster can be suitable for your needs, the OP.
    Prices are low and they offer over 90 methods of payment including Bitcoin.
    summervps17 is their discount.
