    I know several members provide it, but I am looking for a Windows VPS that I can run a custom app on. It's an email scrapper.

    It does not send any email, post comments, or anything like that.

    The problem is that it uses a lot of RAM and running it on my PC will slow me down.

    I do not need a control panel - just access to the VPS. Windows 7 would be nice if available.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    Typically I use a cheap dedicated server instead of a VPS.
    Try Kimsufi.ie, they offer 2GB Dedicated for 20/month and offer Windows as welll, they are located in France. However, CPU may be a bottleneck in this situation.
    Ofc, you could always try for 16GB at 50/month

    If you truly want a VPS, buyvm.net is awesome but they are usually out of stock.
    Try this, http://www.lowendbox.com/tag/kvm/, they list the VPSes with lower RAM, but the higher tiers should be equally cheap as well.

    Thanks for the suggestion - I'll check them out. RAM will be the big issue. I have a big job I need to process and I need to run it on multiple computers. I have 5 at home that I am going to use and if I can get a couple more, it will turn a 200 day tasks (on one PC) into a one-month tasks.

    Since you said you won't be sending any email, in that case I can prepare a custom VPS for you based on your needs. Please PM me your Skype and I will help you get started with a vps immediately.

    Thanks everyone for the PM's and suggestions. It will be a couple weeks before I have the data and file ready. At that time I'll review the proposals and suggestions some have sent and make a decision on a few.

    Thanks.

    I'm looking for the same deal, anyone got any more suggestions?

    I'm thinking Burstnet VPS PACKAGE #3, is it a good deal?

    Not familiar with Burstnet. Their site is old-fashioned. Why would any hosting site show images with CRT monitors. I wouldn't use them for hosting but I'll pay $8/month to run my app.

    Thanks.

    I'll check out a few other suggestions as mentioned above.

    I am using Ugjunk VPS and they are good. If you want low cost, you might want to try bermanhosting, they are the best in the economy class. Good performance too.
