What is Windows VPS?
Windows VPS offers you all the benefits of a dedicated server with Windows operating system without having to pay thousands of dollars for one. It's completely private to you and gives you full Administrator access. You could manage it by using Microsoft Remote Desktop on any computer or smart phone anywhere in the world.
Can I connect to my Windows VPS using Remote Desktop?
Sure, once your VPS is provisioned, our system emails you with the dedicated IP address assigned to your VPS and then you could connect to your VPS using Microsoft Remote Desktop or alternative applications at Administrator level.
What virtualization technology do you use?
VPSDime uses Microsoft's own Hyper-V virtualization technology platform.
How long does the VPS provisioning take?
We want to ensure that your first order with us is as smooth as possible, which means we will manually screen every order placed. This may take up to 15 minutes and you can expect a short delay before receiving access information.
What are the advantages of using Hyper-V?
Hyper-V is deeply integrated with Windows Server. This provides excellent stability and reduces the virtualization overhead. As a microkernelized hypervisor, Hyper-V uses the individual virtual machines to run device drivers. This means that each VPS has its own unique set of devices (and corresponding driver) which allows for better performance because there isn't any unnecessary reliance on other components in order to function properly.
Can I upgrade or downgrade my Windows VPS?
Scaling up and down Windows VPS is very easy and fast. You could place an order for an upgrade or downgrade on your client area. There will be a very small amount of downtime for the upgrades and downgrades.
Are the resources dedicated to my VPS?
Memory and disk space are completely dedicated to your VPS. Our VPS provides an absolute bang for your buck because we pass along the savings from using a shared CPU to our customers. Our in-house fully automated monitoring systems ensure that no disturbances will ever occur, so you'll have all of the power when required - guaranteed!
Which Windows versions are available?
Windows VPS's arrive with Windows Server 2019 Datacenter edition installed.
Can I reinstall my VPS's operating system?
Of course, you could do it any time on your client area. The process takes only a few minutes.
What kind of technical support do you provide?
Our service is self-managed. However being self-managed doesn't necessarily mean that you are left alone. We offer support to help our customers with their issues, and we will always point them in the right direction if they need something more than just answering questions or troubleshooting small problems.
Do you backup my VPS?
Windows VPS's do not come with backup support by default. You can purchase a Nightly Backup addon for $5/month, which is only necessary if you want your VPS to be backed up nightly with 3 days retention.
Is my VPS DDoS protected?
We handle small to medium attacks, but larger ones require automated null-routing to avoid disturbance for our other customers. We recommend Cloudflare for DDoS protection on your website.
How secure is Windows VPS?
We take industry standard precautions with our host nodes, and you get full Administrator access to your VPS to implement additional security in your VPS as desired.
