    I want to run SEO powersuite and some other white hat software on a remote server where i can just configure it and schedule it to run so it does not take all my personal computer's resources. I am not very technically savy, so I tried to get my programmer to do this for me on my VPS but he could not get it done. Can someone point in the right direction on a service that provides this or how i CAN do it on my VPS (hostgtr)..

    gracias

    Obviously you need a Windows VPS. Then you connect via Remote Desktop and work with it as usual.

    Also you can get linux VPS then install some virtualization software - vmware server (free)
    and then run windows guest machine on top of it.
    I am running my SEO softwares this way
