This Video Shows Me Running Software on a Windows VPS (Virtual Private Server)
What is a virtual windows VPS? It is simply a windows computer running on a server hosted by a web hosting company. The operating system is almost identical to windows 7-10. So it is very intuitive to use if you ever have used a windows computer.
Basically you lease this remote windows computer and you can log in any time using Remote Desktop Connection from any computer. Remote Desktop Connection is on all windows computers already and if you have a Macintosh you can download the version for MAC here.
So here is what you do if you want to run our software or any windows software remotely:
Everything else is exactly the same as running the software on an updated Windows computer because that is exactly what you are doing. You have simply leased a virtual windows machine which you can log into at anytime from not only your XP or MAC computer but from any computer in the world and run your software.
Here are some advantages of running your software on a remote Windows Machine even if you already have an updated version of Windows on your home computer.
Do you keep your computer turned on 24/7? Most people do not. However, if you are running your software remotely all you have to do is log into your remote server, set up your campaigns, then log off and the Windows VPS server will continue to run your programs 24/7. Your windows VPS server does not depend on your internet connection on your home computer.
Even if you have an updated version of Windows on your computer running multiple instances of software all day can consume large amounts of resources on your home computer making all your other work go more slowly. If you have a dedicated Windows VPS then this will free up your home computer resources and allow you to be more efficient.
You will be able to run multiple software at the same time on the Windows VPS allowing you to get even more work done.
The remote Windows VPS I recommend is based in Los Angeles. The ip address of the computer is then of course from Los Angeles California. If you are outside the USA having a US ip address for certain projects can be helpful.
Even though I have an updated version of windows on all my home computers I still use a Remote Windows VPS to run my software. The reason is that I outsource much of my submission work. I just give my outsourced worker the log in to the Windows VPS and they can log in at any time to do their work. Time zones mean nothing since the server is live 24/7. Also I do not have to give a worker access to my main computer.
What if you are at work and you want to run your software? Or what if you are traveling? With a Windows VPS you can log in from any computer anywhere, set up your campaigns, and then log off. Or if you were in an airport you could plug in your laptop, set up your campaigns, remotely on the VPS then catch your plane.
As you can see there are many benefits to having a Windows VPS if you are serious about running your software. I recommend WinVPS because they offer the best deal that I have found and they have excellent service and servers. They are the company that I use for my Windows VPS and even one other Linux VPS.
You can order your Windows VPS here. You need at least 2 gigs of RAM. I recommend minimum the Bronze packages. Note: After you order you may need to ask them to install .Net Framework 3.5 on the server. You could do it yourself but it might be easier just to have them do it. It only takes a few minutes.
