    I have read thru several threads that using a VPS will increase application speeds and user surfing experience significantly.

    I'm interested in using a VPS with Youtube marketing and some Windows based automation tools like : Mass Video Blaster, Magic Article Submitter, SENuke X...

    My questions are:

    1) Will i have to install my apps. directly onto the actual VPS server?

    2) How will I connect to the VPS, via a web browser or is it like a VPN client that I will open from my actual computer?

    3) I notice most of the Windows based VPS have
    Windows 2008 or Windows 2008 R2 Operating Systems. Are these compatible with Windows applications which require Windows versions: XP, Vista, and/or Win 7? (Sorry i'm a Mac man...)

    4) How fast realistically are these VPS's in comparison to the average desktop? Is it REALLY that much more faster?

    5) Anyone know of any tutorials and hosts with Noob friendly solutions where I can literally login and not have to do any set-up in order to use the VPS?

    6) What are some recommended specs i'll need in my VPS based on my stated projected usage? (by the way my goal is to upload over 1000 vids over 50 YT accounts...)


    I 'm certain it's very simple , just need someone to explain it in plain talk .
    Also, if anyone is currently using a VPS with anyone of the apps i've mentioned and/or for YouTube marketing , I would greatly appreciate your input, recommendations and any feedback from your personal experience.

    Thanks!:baby09:

    2) How will I connect to the VPS, via a web browser or is it like a VPN client that I will open from my actual computer? You download some vnc viewer and enter the server ip and login details and you get the desktop like in real computer

    3) I notice most of the Windows based VPS have
    Windows 2008 or Windows 2008 R2 Operating Systems. Are these compatible with Windows applications which require Windows versions: XP, Vista, and/or Win 7? (Sorry i'm a Mac man...) Yes win 08 is Vista and 08 r2 is Win7 but server versions.

    4) How fast realistically are these VPS's in comparison to the average desktop? Is it REALLY that much more faster? Well most people use them because often vps/servers have 100/100mbs connection, and they can run all the time.

    5) Anyone know of any tutorials and hosts with Noob friendly solutions where I can literally login and not have to do any set-up in order to use the VPS? Well if you get windows vps its just like you would have just installed windows, but most of the drivers have already installed.

    6) What are some recommended specs i'll need in my VPS based on my stated projected usage? (by the way my goal is to upload over 1000 vids over 50 YT accounts...)
    1gb ram and enough space for videos + few tb of bandwidth should do it.

    Using VPS is really easy

    So if I get this right.. then instead of leaving my desktop turned on all night, running Tweetattack and other such tools, i can install them on a VPS and it would run? But what happens when you log off the VPS connection? The connection would be lost i suppose and would result in the remote desktop being closed?

    Yep, but the computer would be still running the same than when you had remote desktop on.
