    Hey guys,

    I thought about running various automation tools for Twitter, SEO etc., but I don't have Windows at the moment. I am using Ubuntu.

    Also, I'd like to run the application 24/7 and that is why I thought about VPS.

    I am a newbie about VPS, so I wanted your advice. Simply put, the VPS is a computer with Windows on it without having the physical product?

    Is this a good option for my endeavor? If so, any recommendations?

    Thanks,
    Tom

    VPS is a virtual machine on a remote server, good option for automation as long as you don't annoy your hosts by overloading the server, be sure to check out the hosts TOS first
