How to Install Windows on VPS? Do you plan to host your own website and want to use Windows? If so, then you will need to install Windows VPS on your VPS. There are many different types of operating systems (or distros) available that you can choose from and many different ways to install them, but the general process of installing Windows on a VPS server is similar no matter which distro you choose or which hosting provider you use.
1. Choose a provider
When you’re ready to install Windows Server, you’ll need access to a host. If you already have a hosting plan for another web application, search through your provider’s control panel or customer portal for a tool that enables you to launch servers. If not, check out top-rated providers like Bluehost and WP Engine; they give you everything you need in one place. #2. Launch an instance: Pick your operating system (Windows 2008 R2 is best) and storage space needs then enter in your billing information; most hosts bill by CPU usage. After you hit create server, it may take up to 15 minutes for your new server to be available. Once it is up and running, connect via SSH with PuTTY or similar software and install Windows from scratch using Microsoft’s instructions. #3. Install IIS: The Internet Information Services (IIS) role provides a framework for running ASP .NET applications as well as other useful features such as FTP services, SMTP mail relay and more.
2. Create your account
Before you start blogging, you should create your account with WordPress. After signing up, create an FTP account and upload your content to your server. If you don’t have access to a hosting provider or FTP service, I recommend Bluehost because they offer a free domain name if you sign up for a year, which is pretty awesome. Also, they’re my hosting provider of choice (I’ve used them since 2008). You can also read my guide on how to install WordPress here . #3. Use Google Analytics: Once you’ve installed WordPress, it’s time to install Google Analytics so that you can track all of your traffic sources and conversions in one place. With GA installed, go into your settings and make sure that tracking is enabled on every page by clicking Yes next to Track pageviews via Google Analytics? This will ensure that all of your traffic data gets tracked correctly.
3. Start using your hosting account
If you are a little confused about how things work at your new hosting account, don’t worry. You have some time before you need to be an expert at everything. For now, we recommend that you: Start reading documentation : Your hosting account came with some documentation. Start browsing through it and look for anything that doesn’t make sense yet. Start asking questions: Once you’ve found something that doesn’t make sense, post a question in our technical support forum . A few other users will help answer your question and may even give you new information that wasn’t available in your account documentation! #4. Write another high-quality content piece: Now that you’re getting more familiar with your hosting account, you can start working on another high-quality content piece (or two). We suggest writing one or two additional pieces of content based off of keywords that got traffic from Google search results when someone searched for how to install windows vps. Write these articles as if they were going to appear as guest posts on popular blogs in your niche (you’ll learn how to do that later). The goal is not only to drive traffic from Google search results but also get people who land on these pages interested enough in what you’re saying so they’ll want to subscribe to future updates from your website.
