    Hello BHW members,

    I'm currently running multiple instances of firefox on my computer 24 hours a day and 7 days a week x) I start to make money with them (see my thread in the Journey) and I would like to scale it up and to make it safer (I'm really angry when my gfriend unplug my charger haha). So i decided to invest in a Windows VPS but I've no idea how to up it and I've got a couple of unanswered questions (I've done a search before to ask...)
    My main questions are:
    • How is the interface on a windows VPS? Can I access it from my own computer?
    • Do you know any good tutorial for my purpose?
    • Last one, which is the best VPN host? And what config do you think I need to run about 50 simultaneous Firefox instances with facebook and imacro and also 1 proxy per instance?

    Thank you a million by advance for your help :')

    Thank you for your answer I made my choice, I'm gonna try cheap windows VPS! Its seems to be a way better than the competition for the price.

    Seems you would need something powerful to run 50 instances

    It took me some time to figure everything out about setting it up but the answers are out there, just take your time and do some googling

    Thank you for your advice :)

    Actually 50 is the number I would like to run but right now I just have 5 or 6 instances settep up, so I thought the best would be to try out first with less accounts and make a test period of 2 or 3 weeks and if everything is working well I will upgrade, Also, the GPS are fully managed and I don't think I need too many knowledge about it for what I wanna do.
