    Hi,. I am getting a windows VPS, but this is the first time I have ever done this. In the Configure server page it asks for hostname, NS1, NS2 and root password. If I am not hosting a site, do I still need a domain name to access windows vps? again, I am brand new to this
    any help is appreciated
    thanks

    Well you can put there w/e you want if you are not going to host websites.

    After you get your VPS details go to the control panel. and there you can see your vps.
    Choose the OS from the list and mount, then boot the vps then take the VNC they are offering in control panel and setup the windows.

    After you have installed the windows go to control panel in windows you installed, system -> remote settings and tick the allow connections to this computer so you can use windows remote desktop

    Thanks, I thought I had to use name servers only, but it makes sense if I am not hosting a website. Thanks I will give it a shot

    I hear they have bad servers and bad support. If you new to vps, I don't suggest you go with them as they offer little support. I read one say telling a story and claim that when he asked them a question their reply was "Google it".

    I've had good experience with serverflare. And make sure you talk to a support person before buying something.
