    I want to get a vps to run a program 24/7 (not a email spammer or anything like that) but it does send messages to a social network.

    Is this allowed on usa vps's and what specs are best in this case.

    Depends on how resource intensive can be that program.. if it didn't influence the load of the server it can be hosted on any vps out there... i would suggest you lvpshosting . com only to talk with the support.. i know that you will love them as i do...

    For someone who doesn't exactly have techy skils, which it sounds like you might be - I would definitely say your easiest setup would be a windows based VPS.

    Then you can just work in the native environment you are used to, and set things to run with task scheduler or something.
