    Hello..I am newbie in this vps system..I would like to ask some about VPS, I have buy a vps from bermanhostingg yesterday, my question is..
    1. Do i have to treat vps like my own pc, install antivirus,antimalware,firewall,..etc
    2. Do i need a cpanel to transfer file to my vps? and can i used cpanel in bermanhosting? (for who also use bermanhosting). They suggest me to used webmin control panel. But it has screwed my head, I cant install it.. I just submit a support ticket, but they reply it so slow, wait a couple of hours, and the answer also doesn't solve my problem..
    3. I just get started and doesn't install any software or program but why my vps is so slow? Is bermanhosting a bad hosting? I have just read much review for this hosting, and it looks like a right choice, but this what I have now...

    Very appreciate your advice..thanks..and I plan to use Ultimate Demon on VPS.. just bought UD a few days ago..

    Hi,

    1. Yes, it is like your PC but I suggest not to install any anti-virus, etc.
    2. You can directly copy-paste files from your PC to VPS.
    3. You can test the net speed by speedtest online.

    Hope it helps. ;)

    1. Yes you can.

    2. As you said you are newbie.
    So i think you need control panel to manage your server. it's very simple to manage it.
    Some host already add control panel and some is not.
    If not you can install by yourself (don't worry it's simple).
    Let search about "kloxo" on google. Kloxo is control panel it's free.

    3. You can test speed by ping to you server.

    first you bought hosting at berman,they will help you set up everything,they are very helpful.but it is advised not to keep important information there.We need vps only to run some applications not everything.

    Using VPS is very simple Just treat as friendly. You can download directly via your browser on vps. Well dont instal any antivirus is becomes very slow.

    Well this thread is so full of win, lol.

    You mention windows SEO tools, so you want to use a windows VPS and access it via remote desktop.
    Klaxo, webmin and cPanel etc are for hosting websites, which is probably why you are confused (and probably confused berman support as well!)

    Did you order a windows VPS, rather than a linux one?

    If yes, you would have recieved an email like this:

    Dear ##username##,

    PLEASE PRINT THIS MESSAGE FOR YOUR RECORDS - PLEASE READ THIS EMAIL IN FULL.

    We are pleased to tell you that the server you ordered has now been set up and is operational.

    Server Details
    =============================

    VPS ExtraV
    Main IP: 111.11.11.111
    Root pass: ********

    IP address allocation:

    ServerName: ****

    Remote Desktop Connection Information
    =============================
    Main IP Address:111.11.11.111 <<---YOU NEED THIS
    Hostname: N/A
    User: Administrator <<---AND THIS
    Root Password: ******** <<---AND THIS


    Take these details and open Remote desktop (Start > All Programs > Accessories > remote desktop connection)
    Enter the details above, and you will log into your server.
    Add the IP in the computer box, and user into the user box. If you click on the 'local resources' tab, you can select to share clipboard (copy and paste) plus if you click [more] button you can share drives as well, so you can drag and drop.
    When connected, it will show a regular windows desktop, and you can use it just like your normal desktop.

    Good, so you are able to connect via remote desktop and upload files etc?

    As to speed, berman servers are quick, your location is probably the issue. The good thing is that its just the screen refresh that is slow, any tools you run will go at full speed, though i dont use UD so you need to check 1GB ram is enough.

    Ya I just signed up with them. Its probably a little laggy because the 1gb of ram but the dl speed is really good. I like it so far might have to upgrade the ram though. I'm usingv dropbox to transfer files but I'm sure there's a better way

    The easiest way to transfer files is by using Dropbox. Sync it seamlessly. If don't wanna do that way then you can install filezilla server on your vps and filezilla client on your pc, connect both and then transfer your file.
