    someone once suggested that
    instead of having multiple computers
    i could go VPN.
    im not very familiar with VPN. i understand that its
    basically a dedicated server on shared space.
    a mix of the two.

    i cant get it through my thick skull how i would use a vpn server
    as a regular computer or the benefits of renting a VPN.

    can i log in with my laptop to another desktop and carry out normal computer activities AND host websites AND run heavy server programs??
    (im trying to run a lot of web sites discreetly/anon)
    thanks!
