I think you have two terms confused..
A VPS is a computer, inside of a computer. It's not dedicated.(a machine to yourself!)
They are cheaper, VPS.
RDP is a protocol used for remote control with Window operating systems.
VPS- Virtual Private Server
RDP - Remote Desktop Protocol
RDP is normally included with a Windows VPS that will allow you to interact with the VPS via remote desktop as if it were sitting right in front of you.
Hope that helps!
Hmmm... so , i what is this the difference between these hosting services :
is it merely just lingo?
Vps (virtual private server) is a server, rdp (remote desktop connection
) is a method of managing your vps.
VPS is a virtual machine or virtual private server. Can be Linux or Windows.
Other provider advertise a Windows VPS as "RDP", that means you will have to manage the VPS through RDP - it has no control panel like Plesk or cPanel.
