    Maybe you can use RDP? You should try contacting your provider for more information.

    RDP is Remote desktop. Another user can take control of your Desktop screen and help you with any guidance that you needed.

    You should contact your hosting provider about it.
    they will certainly help you to connect and they will know the type of service you have ;) (Windows / Linux)

    If it's a plain server without control panel (cpanel / Plesk) then either you need to know how to manage a server (linux command / windows interface) OR
    you need to take help of your webhost.
    May i know what are you planning to use it for?

    best thing to do if you don't how to use it is to contact the host and get it set up with managed support.

    But really if you don't know what to do with it. Then a VPS might not be for you.
