    I am not quite clear what a VPS is and how it works.

    so a VPS is a virtual computer that has internet connection, right?
    1. Does it work exactly like a computer? Does it have a start button, My Documents, etc like a real computer?
    2. If I can run a software on my own laptop, then that means I can run it on a VPS too?
    3. Would my ISP know that I am using a VPS?
    4. does the VPS run completely independent of my home connection? I can do whatever the hell I want and my own ISP won't know, right? I can download movies from torrent sites, I can run SB, I can run GSA, my ISP is not involved in any way, right?
    5. So what does my ISP see? As far as they are concerned, my computer is off and I am sleeping?

    I just want to make sure my home connection is NOT being used when doing things in VPS. can you confirm that?

    Yes to almost everything.

    Your ISP will only see the traffic between your computer and the VPS

    To clarify: that is not the same as the data from internet > virtual machine.

    I dont understand what you mean.
    I just dont want to get in trouble with my own ISP. if I do all my activity in VPS, my own ISP is not at all involved, right?
    for example, if my proxies leak, but real IP address will not be revealed, only the VPS provider's IP address will be revealed, right?
    As far as my ISP is concerned, my computer is off, right?

    Your ISP will see the traffic from your computer to the VPS but won't see any traffic on the VPS.

    You could set up a VPN or use proxy's from your computer to the VPS then your traffic would be hidden from your ISP.
    You could try using OpenVPN.

    But if I just use a VPS without VPN, what the ISP sees won't be anything out of the ordinary or suspicious, right? it looks like I am just doing normal work like checking my email, no?

    There's nothing suspicious about using a VPS just make sure it's not one known for committing crimes

    so a VPS is a virtual computer that has internet connection, right?

    A remote computer that does yes.

    1. Does it work exactly like a computer? Does it have a start button, My Documents, etc like a real computer?

    Yes, most of it has the basics of a laptop you would buy in the store. No Microsoft office ect unless you purchase a VPS where
    they offer this. Usually cost more and is unnecessary.


    2. If I can run a software on my own laptop, then that means I can run it on a VPS too?

    Nope. It is completely separate from your laptop.

    3. Would my ISP know that I am using a VPS?

    Only the connection to the VPS. Nothing more.

    4. does the VPS run completely independent of my home connection? I can do whatever the hell I want and my own ISP won't know, right? I can download movies from torrent sites, I can run SB, I can run GSA, my ISP is not involved in any way, right?

    Pretty much yes.

    5. So what does my ISP see? As far as they are concerned, my computer is off and I am sleeping?

    I just want to make sure my home connection is NOT being used when doing things in VPS. can you confirm that?

    They will only see a connection to the VPS and nothing more after that. They will not see anything from your VPS.

    Hope that helped
    :)
