Dos and Don'ts for Windows VPS

Dos and Don'ts for Windows Premium VPS, Classic VPS, Economy VPS and Windows Private Cloud VPS:

  1. Please allow remote desktop connection before enabling any third party firewall or anti-virus application.
  2. Do not delete or modify 'Accuwebhosting_tech/Tech_support' user as it is our critical support account. If you delete 'Accuwebhosting_tech/Tech_support' user, please mention necessary login details while submitting a ticket.
  3. We don't recommend any kind of customizing on our Multilocation VPS. For example, if you change the RDP port and the server will be inaccessible, we will not be able to get it accessible again. That vps will need to rebuild from scratch and you will lose the Data.
  4. Do not modify Firewall settings if you are not familiar with it.
  5. Do not disable or modify network card settings.
  6. We never recommend any third party application which can modify or disable VPS network card settings.
  7. Do not disable or uninstall Virtual Machine Config service [VMCONFIG] otherwise, you will not be able to manage your VPS using VPS management portal.
  8. We strongly recommend that you keep your VPS updated by installing 'Microsoft Windows updates' on a regular interval.
  9. Do not modify Remote Desktop Services stats.
