What exactly am I buying?
The server you buy is basically a Windows machine that you can remotely access from your computer or your mobile phone.
You’ll get the hostname, username and password for the server. You use these details to access the server using “Remote Desktop Connection (RDP)”.
RDP is built into windows systems and you have apps for Mac, Android and iPhone.
The server acts and behaves like a normal Windows PC. You can install anything, run your favorite programs, browse the internet, etc.
