General Questions

RDP Account or Remote Desktop Account is a normal user account provided in a remote server having decent hardware configuration. Each RDP Server is shared among ~10 remote desktop accounts. You don't get administrator access in the server but we do make changes or install the software that you require. All the work you do in your RDP Account are 100% private.
In VPS or Virtual Private Servers resources are not shared but reserved for each user. VPS comes with full administrator access. You can install software configure the server as per your wish. Windows VPS can be accessed via Remote Desktop Client app.
That totally depends on your needs. If you want to host websites or want complete control of the Server, you should probably go for VPS. If you want shared server with high configuration and without administrator access you should go for RDP Account. (Custom Softwares will also installed*)
To connect use the Remote Desktop Connection Tool, Once opened enter the IP/Name provided in the email into the Host/Computer field and click connect, after that you will be asked for login credentials, enter them and you will be connected.

To be straight forward whenever I need RDP/VPS for my projects that's going to get some serious use I go straight to GookRDP, without any second thought. Even if there are plans with other providers that give more resources for the same outlay. I.ll go to GookRDP every time.

"Love the forward thinking features to keep nodes humming great (like the MySQL offloading) and IPV6. The great thing about GookRDP is their constant presence in the LEB/LET/WHT forums. Real down to earth crew that works quick on tickets and goes the extra distance to help.

"GookRDP.com is my favourite host to use for my websites, the amount of work they put into their servers to make sure that they are always operating at exceptional efficiency goes to show that they might be a budget provider by price, but the energy that Francis and his team put into their product is not anything less than exceptional."
