A Virtual Private Server (VPS) is a type of hosting service that uses virtualization technology to create multiple virtual machines on a single physical server. Each VPS acts like a dedicated server, with its own operating system, resources, and applications. However, unlike a dedicated server, a VPS shares the physical hardware resources of the underlying server with other VPSs.
A Windows VPS (Virtual Private Server) is a specific type of VPS that comes pre-installed with the Windows operating system, instead of Linux which is more common. This means you get the familiarity and functionality of Windows on a virtual server, offering similar advantages to a regular VPS but tailored for Windows users and applications.
RDP, or Remote Desktop Protocol, is a secure network communication protocol developed by Microsoft. It allows you to connect to a remote computer and interact with it as if you were sitting in front of it. This means you can see the remote computer’s desktop, open and close applications, and use files and resources just like you would on your local machine.
