    I could never figure out how to host a Website online with a Windows VPS server in the past. Well its very easy. You install ZPANEL its a free version similar to Cpanel.


    Host all of your websites on a free VPS from Amazon. There are lots of videos online to help. What got me for the longest time is I had to add a firewall rule for port 80. So Im running Scrapebox on a free VPS from AWS Amazon hosting and I also can host multiple websites and have PHP.


    Pretty cool, it took me only a couple of hours to get the site online.


    Code:
    http://ec2-54-149-42-3.us-west-2.compute.amazonaws.com/
    Check it out! This is a free Windows VPS running Scrapebox. All of your hosting needs all in one.

    Set up a FREE WINDOWS VPS The video below.


    Now take note on how he enables PORT 80 with HTTP. This is for your hosting, your root folders. After this you have to enable Windows Firewall rules for port 80 and if you email from your websites port 25 and 110.

    Now you setup Zpanel here, it is very easy!




    PHP Works really well!!


    The internet connection is very fast however the free option only gives you 1GB of Ram and a 30GB Harddrive. This is what allot of hosting companies use to sell you hosting anyway.


    They are all virtual, a VPS is not real hardware wise. Both Microsoft and Google have the same type of system. You can get a Free VPS also from here:

    This is the link to Amazon Hosting to get The free VPS above.

    Code:
    http://aws.amazon.com/websites/

    Microsoft VPS


    Code:
    https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/

    And also there is a Free trial at Google


    Here
    Code:
    https://cloud.google.com/



    I have hosted websites on Google appspot for years for free, I prefer Amazon it has the best hosting solutions.

    From my experience, zPanel is a buggy and outdated control panel that can be hacked quite easily. No wonder it's free.
