How to connect to my Windows VPS? Connecting with RDP

After activation of a Windows VPS server, it takes 15 to 40 minutes to load the Operating System for the first time. Then you can connect to the VPS server with Windows Remote Desktop Connection. On Apple devices, including iPads and iPhones, you can install the Microsoft Remote Desktop app from the App Store. On Linux, you can use Remmina Remote Desktop Client or similar software. On Android, you can use Microsoft’s Remote Desktop client.

Please follow these steps to connect to your Windows VPS with RDP (this guide is for Windows users, however other operating systems or devices work similarly.)

1. Check your email inbox and look for an email from RouterHosting containing the login details for logging into your server:

2. Now open the Remote Desktop Connection software:

Windows Rdp 02

3. Enter the IP address (a four-part address number similar to 111.111.111.111) which you have received in the email. (Please make sure you have waited for 20 to 40 minutes before your attempt to connect to the server.)

Congratulations! You now are connected to your Windows VPS via Microsoft RDP (Remote Desktop Connection). Now you can use your VPS machine just like your own computer and run any software you wish.

Your server can be on and online 24/7. If you are running a program on it, then make sure you do not log off, just disconnect the remote connection.
