after purchasing you will be given login info. an IP and username/password. use your windows PCs ‘Remote Desktop Connection’ program to log in to your VPS.
you can find this program by searching or under ”Windows Accessories > Remote Desktop Connection’
after logging in install your traffic bot and let it running. follow the guide provided by software developer regarding options in the application. now you will have to check like once a day to see if the program working correctly. in my own experience some programs crash when running in high thread counts. you can run maximum of 50 threads in 2GB Ram and 100 in 4GB Ram. if you can go for a dedicated server you can run 250 thread at once with 8GB ram. this numbers can be different slightly with each application but as in general, this is the limit.
hope this information if useful. and good luck with your bots.
