LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

Do I need to be technically-inclined to use a VPS?

Date/Time: May 29, 2020 @ 12:40 pm, by Jon Biloh

Yes and No. A Linux VPS does require some technical understanding because you will generally be accessing it using either a web hosting control panel, like cPanel, or by a terminal session (text only). On the other hand, a Windows based VPS is very easy to use because you access it using Windows Remote Desktop, and the interface is nearly identical to your computer at home if it runs Windows. Many people find that having a “cloud based” desktop running on their own cheap Windows VPS is a great way to have an always-available desktop for security reasons, data storage, web browsing, and more. Whether you pick a Linux VPS or Windows VPS, take a look at our Tutorial Section where we frequently publish how-to guides and other informative articles about using your VPS hosting service.
