Using these amazing desktop software through my server - is it possible ?

5 replies

I have bought some great software,

ie. Link Builder, Video Submitter, and Google Indexer. The exact names I cannot remember, but they do these functions fantastically.

However, my computer is running slow because of the software I am using, and my slow internet.

I was wondering if there is a way, to install them onto my server, and access the software through my server. That way, it is running non stop, and not affecting the speed of my computer. - RAM etc.

Can anyone advise. I think the concept is Remote Desktop, but not sure whether it is a standard HostGator feature etc....

Thanks in advance,

    I can tell you this, yes it is possible but you will probally need a programmer to do it. I do not think you can just upload and use unless the software was built that way.
    I have had a few programs reprogrammed to use on my server though, especially for membership sites.

    yes of course you can, many people choose to do this for various reasons.

    You just need to rent a VPS, and yoU wont need a programmer it works just the same as your desktop PC, if you have them installed on your desktop PC you can install it on a VPS.

    I have bought some great software ............
    The exact names I cannot remember
    How can you not remember what you have bought? Strange

    If your software is designed to run on a computer with a Windows operating system, you can simply order a VPS or full server with Windows installed on it, then install and run your software there.

    I don't use this setup but I know it's possible and a lot of people do it. To find out how, just do some searches online or ask your software vendor.

    I believe there is a thread on WSO sub-forum on renting out VPS, so if you do want to look at that, I would suggest looking at it.

    if your server is a windows 2003 or 2008 then you can, if its not it might be easier and cheaper to buy a windows VPS
