    Alright so I am considering buying a dedicated server on which I will host Xrumer, PrStorm and other apps in the future, that way I can always have those two running without eating up my bandwidth. My only question is how does that work? That's noobish I know but I have never used a dedicated server before. Can I remotely access it and then start the apps just like a normal instance of Windows? How do I manage the computer remotely?

    Buying or renting? If you buying then why are you concerned about remote access? You can always access your server remotely using some client software.

    try getting a server from Kimsufri or OVH in France. They're not really concerned about what the hell you do with your server since it's offshore and the cheapest server is like $50 or so it's cheap. And it comes with like 2tb or bandwidth. If you want a US server try joesdatacenter.com their network is amazing and the server's are really cheap as well. I had a seedbox their for like 6 months and they didn't find out :D

    You will likely be using Remote Desktop, it comes with Win Server 2003.

    I know the feeling about being a first time buyer of a dedicated server. I rented one a few years ago to run a blog farm and it was pretty expensive at $100 a month. I thought it would be as easy as running your own computer but it wasn't. First off I had no idea how to access it when they sent me the details so when I asked support, they said I had to use SSH. I was like what the fff....k is that? So I bought Cpanel with it which added another $40 a month. Then I had endless problems with ips, DNS, you name it. I did have a few resellers accounts and a VPS so I knew how to set up domains, nameservers etc, but running your dedi server is fairly tricky. Unless it's because it was a Linux one and everyone here is talking about using windows so maybe that is where I went wrong when I chose it.
