    Basically,

    My internet at my house completely blows...so using Scrapebox or any other linkbuilding software is out of the question.

    What I want to do is have a VPS where I can remotely access the desktop and be able to run programs like Scrapebox, AMR, etc, and not have to worry about fast speeds.

    Is this possible?

    I know there's some hosts like W2Servers and Xsserver.eu that do this...any other recommendations?

    Can you tell me if the lowest plan would be good enough to host some seo tools such as scrapebox and seolinkrobot? Also, can 2 people access it?
    Thanks!

    May I ask what's the plan you're using and how many instances of SB you run on it? How's their support? Thanks :)

    If you have strong vps (fast bandwidth, cpu and ram), you can run multiple instances just in one vps. I can run 4 sb in my server with 200 threads each (2 harvesting, 2 posting).

    Yes, certainly it is possible to run programs like Scrapebox and AMR in a virtual environment. VPS is a great option you have chosen, it offers exactly according to your requirements. You will be able to install your own third party applications and software's on it. You will get optimum performance on the server. However, you will have to confirm about the RDP connection from the hosting provider you choose. Most of them allows it.

    Just an observation.. AMR eats a lot of RAM and I mean huge.

    Try RackSpace Cloud. A bit pricey but extremely reliable. Make sure to use proxies as always.

    I picked up another vps at xsserver.eu last month and am satisfied so far. Set up was fast billing via paypal, and support is quick. My box is in Germany.

    Good luck
