  • Unexpensive toy?

    I have been kicking around the idea for a while now and I think I am finally at the point where I want to play around with a windows server. I am pretty sure I do not need anything from it, but I do want to do something just so I can test one out. Suggestions?

    Well, if you're only looking forward to play around with a Windows based server in order to learn and understand how to manage it, It'd be a better option to consider a Windows VPS rather than choosing a Windows dedicated server for now. A Windows VPS will give you an idea as to how you can manage a Windows server and as a VPS is almost like a dedicated server with less resources and some restrictions (there are some in comparison to a dedicated server ), it'd be the best solution for you as for now

    Please feel free to post if you have any further questions.

      Yeah, If you are looking for affordable test server then you should think of a virtual private server VPS which are similar to dedicated servers but having comparatively less resources. Major advantage of using a VPS is that you have Administrative RDP access for your Windows VPS hence you have total Freedom & Flexibility to play with your server at much cheaper cost.

          VPS would seem to be the best bet for now, I am kicking it around with a few friends of mine. A buddy I used to work with years ago is a totally windows guy, I am a linux freak so we tend to bash heads a little. We are trying to come up with something simple but sturdy that I can poke around with.

            How is Windows VPS differ with Linux VPS? Are the servers different in OS or are the websites made in different platforms? I'm quite confused why there is a Linux and Windows server. What about a Mac VPS, does this server exist as well?

              Windows & Linux VPS are totally different OS. Windows VPS operates with Windows 2003 or Windows 2008 OS & Linux VPS operates with CentOS, Fedora, Ubuntu & Debian.

              Mac OS is not available on vps.
