Some tools are needed for the people who work in the IT field, and sometimes one of them is a virtual Windows Server. RDP/VPS is a service that the main physical server that is divided into small virtual servers using virtualization technologies. This RDP/VPS service has its own Operating System(Windows Server/Client), dedicated resources, pure IPv4 from the location you choose and will stay online always that you can use the Remote Desktop Connection application to connect, from anywhere/anytime through all devices(Mac, Windows, Linux, and even your smart-phone)! This post will answer the question “When Do I Need A Good RDP?”. So stay with us!

Protect your privacy when you are surfing websites
Many good websites are restricted and blocked in some countries—websites like Youtube, Wikipedia, PayPal, and so on. You can easily open these websites on the RDP server. And yes, VPN can also be used for this, but there are some VPN issues. Most VPN providers don’t provide static IPs, and it can cause many other issues. For example, if the range of the IP changes to login to PayPal, Paypal will restrict the account, and you won’t be able to log in anymore!


Even if the providers give you static IP, there is one other issue. If your connection to the VPN disconnects and you understand it late, it will also put your business at risk. As a result, RDP is a better choice for this because you will have dedicated and static IP, and also, you will be able to open websites inside the RDP and not in your own system. Also, it is safer and more secure to surf over the internet with a different IP than your own IP. You can choose the IP location(be a visitor/user from the USA, Europe, Asia), any location you want!

Run A Website
If you have a website written in the ASP.net framework, you are probably using shared web hosting. Especially when a website is new, it is always the best option to use shared web hosting. But when your website grows and you get more visitors, shared web hosting won’t be suitable anymore!

After ordering, you can install IIS and run your website, or the easiest method is the Plesk control panel. This panel will give you a user-friendly interface to manage your website, DNS, E-mail, SSL, etc.

What are the advantages of running a website on Windows RDP?
Dedicated Resources
Dedicated Bandwidth
Dedicated IP
Admin-Access
Being More Secure
Flexible Configurations
Download/Upload Server
When you have a file or files that you need to download every day, you can use an RDP to do this. Once you installed the IIS, the www / inetpub will be created inside the drive to install the operating system. (C:)

The only thing you need to do is put your required files inside that folder and use the below URL inside the client computer to download that file.

https://192.168.10.5/test.zip

In this example, “192.168.10.5″ is the IP of RDP. The “test” is the name of the file that we want to download. “.zip” is the extension of the file.
If you do not trust famous cloud service providers like Google One Drive or Dropbox or need a backup plan, you can have your own storage server. You can use an RDP to keep your files inside it.

Run a Software or Service 24×7
There are thousands of Windows software that you can install on Windows RDP and use online. When you need an exe software to be online and keep running, your own PC is not such a good idea! You can have a Windows RDP(+ admin access) to run various applications, software, programs, bots, services, scripts, etc., 24×7. The recommended resources are 2GB RAM and 2Core CPU to have a suitable performance.
