    Hi, I am looking at getting a VPS, but am new to this whole area.

    I need it to run constantly racking up my Vagex views right now, before maybe moving onto other stuff.

    Let's say just Vagex for now.

    Don't know what I'm doing re : spec, needs, bandwidth, etc

    If anyone could offer advice, and/or deals I'd really appreciate it. Not quite sure what I'm doing here.

    Thanks if anyone can help :)

    I didn't know anything about VPS just awhile ago. I thought it was a complicated process of setting up and managing it. But when I read about it, it was actually really simple. Just find a good VPS provider with positive reviews and its easy as logging in to Windows and installing your stuff.

    I would really recommend BermanHosting. They have really cheap rates compared to others, but their servers are reliable and their support is great. At $16/month, it's pretty good. You can actually find cheaper VPS, but I wouldn't really recommend them.

    Also, others will recommend other good VPS providers. But their rates are at around $30/month and above.

    Basically, you need at least 1GB of RAM, 100mbps internet, and unlimited traffic.

    If you require a windows server get one with nothing less than 1 gig of ram, 2 would be recommended. Windows is a resource hog, so you need a decent chunk of ram.
