The Most Powerful Windows VPS For Your Marketing Tools

I know that many of you would like to use a VPS for your marketing tools so they are 24/7 online and working to do your bidding. We also have users that are on Max OS X and would like an alternative to using a virtual machine on their Mac and having to keep their computer open all day long.

We get asked a lot what VPS we recommend and until now we simply responded something like “any windows vps should be fine” however, we decided to dig a little deeper into this and do the research for you. We wanted to achieve several things with this:

  • not waste your time as it would take a lot of searching if you’re not familiar with this
  • get the best possible VPS at the best price
  • get a VPS that works really good with Mass Planner

We’ve also split this into two categories:

  • casual users – that only use Mass Planner with a couple of accounts and don’t need a lot of processing power
  • power users that need a good VPS at a good price to run hundreds of accounts.

For the first category – casual users, we already wrote an in-depth tutorial on how to get a free VPS from Amazon for 1 year. So if you don’t use Mass Planner with a lot of accounts and a lot of tools, you can just move it to this VPS provided by Amazon, specifications are not very high but it will work, and the best thing it’s free.

Here are the specifications for the free VPS from Amazon:

  • 1Gb of RAM
  • 30Gb Hdd ( youโ€™ll have around 11Gb free after the OS is installed)
  • 1 virtual processor at 2.49Ghz
  • OS: Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard.
  • 1GB monthly free traffic ( if you go over they will charge you $0.12 per 1Gb which is almost free as well )

Now let’s jump to the cool part. A VPS that any serious marketer can use 24/7 and load with his/her tools of the trade that will run and work to further his/her business. That sounds good right? Well its not that easy, there are a lot of VPS providers out there and even though most of them have pretty much the same specifications some will work better than others, some will be a lot more expensive than others. The idea here is to find the perfect balance between a good price and a great service.

perfect balance between price and service for a windows vps

In order to find the best service for our users we gathered a list of 10 Windows VPS providers with various prices and got a VPS with the same core specifications from each of them. We then installed Mass Planner on each of them, loaded it with 50 accounts and let it run for a few days logging in several times per day to see how everything is going, internet speed, errors (which sometimes happen due to bad internet connections), processor load and overall performance.

Won’t bore you with a couple of thousand words long article on how we tested everything and the results, what I can say it took a while and we tested and re-tested everything, and finally decided on a Windows VPS provider that had decent prices and the best quality servers. Here’s what speedtest has to say about it ( this was taken with Mass Planner already running with 15 accounts) :

greencloud-vps-test-2

Without any further ado, the recommended provider is: GreencloudVPS. You can read step by step instructions on how to set it up here.

Depending on how many accounts you want to run you can choose to get a VPS from 4Gb to 8Gb or RAM. We know that not everybody needs to run hundreds of accounts with Mass Planner so for that reason we wanted to find someone that had different packages for everybody.

This is pretty much it, we’ve done all the hard work for you and we are confident we picked the best Windows VPS provider. You can use it for both Mass Planner and any other tools you have. You can now have your permanent online presence at a very affordable rate and with top notch performance!

see your business flourish

Enjoy using Mass Planner like it was designed to work –ย  fast and without any problems and see your business flourish.

    Excellent, when i bought massplanner the first time round I put it on a VPS, but it kept running out of resources, i eventually just bought another machine and i run it on that. however I would prefer to have it setup again on a vps, then it would be on all the time fulltime.

    Thanks for you insight.

    James

    1. Johnny says:

      Definitely glad to help James and I must admit it was fun to test all those VPS providers and see how good each is.

  2. Nicky says:

    I have mass planner running on my Mac with Parallels. I’ve signed up with this new VPS. Is there a way to just move my settings that I already have running? I’ve moved it three or four times from a couple other more expensive services and I’ve had to reset all accounts up every time. Such a pain.

    1. Johnny says:

      Yes, you can just move the whole Mass Planner folder to the new VPS and it will just continue where it left off. Here’s how to move the data : http://www.massplanner.com/full-instructions-get-free-windows-vps-year/#04

  3. Al Qayoom says:

    I already have a VPS that runs my website () so all I really need is instructions on how to upload MassPlanner to my Hosting provider. Thanks, Al

    1. Johnny says:

      This is a windows software so you need a VPS running windows. If your VPS runs you site it might be linux so it won’t work. If however it is windows uploading Mass Planner to it is really simple, just connect though remote desktop and install it on the VPS like you would on your computer or simply move the whole Mass Planner folder from your computer to the VPS in order to keep all your settings.

  4. Clifton says:

    Ok I have the free version of my VPS set up but I do not see HOW to transfer the set up files to it ? Please help me thanks !

    1. Johnny says:

      If you want a fresh install on the new VPS, just download Mass Planner there directly from http://www.massplanner.com/knowledge-base/downloading-installing-mass-planner/ and install it.

      If you want to move your copy of Mass Planner there in order to keep your current settings, you need to move the whole Mass Planner folder from your computer to the new vps – here’s how : http://www.massplanner.com/full-instructions-get-free-windows-vps-year/#04

  5. Paul says:

    Hello.
    Now I have 5 functional accounts with several tools turned on, they are on the free VPS from Amazon. If I want to increase the number of accounts to 20-25, which of these three offers would you recommend? Do you think that would go ok with the VPS Triangle?
    Thanks.

    1. Johnny says:

      Hi Paul, it depends how much you’re going to use the 20-25 accounts each day, but i’d say yes, with moderate usage the triangle offer should work quite well.

  6. Lucas says:

    Hi there! Thank you for this very useful information. My question is, If I have Mass Planner running with 2 FB accounts, 1 Google + and 1 Twitter. Would this run on the Free Amazon Server? Or I need to get the paid one.

    Thank you!

    1. Johnny says:

      It should run on the free one just fine. Try that first and if you feel the need to upgrade you can do that anytime.

  7. George says:

    I was using ShapeHost before you posted this, and they are really good when it comes to VPS. Never tried their web hosting plans though.

    One question. Can you please let me know if I can run multiple instances on the same VPS or do I need to get another one?

    Thanks,

    George

    1. Johnny says:

      Hi George, they are indeed great.

      You want to run multiple instances of Mass Planner? Why would you want to run multiple instances on the same vps? You can just add all the accounts to the instance already running.

      Also the answer is no, you cannot run multiple instances, unless you get multiple licenses. One license equals one instance of Mass Planner.

      1. Alina says:

        Can I move Mass Planner from my PC to VPS without a new licence?

      2. Johnny says:

        Sure you can, just move the whole massplanner folder over.

  8. clever says:

    Ordered one today, but this won’t came with massplanner installed, actually i even can install for my selft, got an error message. Support says to change the OS, but i don’t know how. A bad start to shapehost here ๐Ÿ™

    1. Johnny says:

      Hi Clever,

      Just got in touch with the guys over at shapehost, they told me you sent a support ticket at 5:09 am asking for help and they sent you a reply back at 7:23 am offering help but you did not reply back.

      They are good guys that work quite fast, you do need to reply to their tickets and solve it with them though. I am sure you will get it going in no time ๐Ÿ˜‰

      1. clever says:

        I was sure that i had replied they, but now i entered in my panel and saw that my message was not there :(. Replied now asking for a help to change the OS, let’s see if they will help e. Anyway you should not write in the post that vps will came with mass if they actually don’t. Thanks

      2. Johnny says:

        Hmm, not sure why that is, they event sent me the message they sent you so they did reply. Might be a bug somewhere, are you not also getting the emails? As for the vps coming with MP installed it really does, not sure what happened. Please check with them again, and be a little patient, I am sure everything will be solved soon.

  10. Nikki says:

    I run over 100 accounts through Mass Planner and am looking to place on a VPS. What package should I go for on iwStack?

    1. Johnny says:

      Depends on how much you want to do with all those accounts, I’ve give a basic guideline here : http://www.massplanner.com/knowledge-base/recommended-vps/

  11. richa arora says:

    I have seen above that its not possible to run multiple instances of MP on the same machine but WHAT if I want to use multiple platforms at the same time? For example, FB automation PLUS pinterest automation at the same time.

    1. Johnny says:

      You can do all of that from only one running instance, it’s designed like that for better flexibility ๐Ÿ™‚ you can add a post and send it to all the platforms at the same time for example, no need to duplicate anything.

  12. Fakhrul Alam says:

    I want to have 100’s account of twitter and instgram what conflagration I should use, should I go for 16gb one or smaller one.

    and one more question with 1 proxy how many accounts we can use?

    waiting for reply

    1. Johnny says:

      Depends on how many 100’s , a 8-16gb should be ok, you can also split them on two different 8gb , as for how many account on a proxy, 3-4 accounts should be ok, just don’t promote the same thing/ add the same url to accounts on the same proxy

      1. Fakhrul Alam says:

        thanks for the reply.

        to start with, I will have 50 Instagram and 50 Twitter account, so 8 gb to 16gb should be fine right?

        what about 100 Instagram and 100 twitter account? 16 gb should be fine?

        regarding proxy: 3-4 accounts can be run through 1 proxy right?

        I want to promote the same website but with different URL and message should be fine right?

        waiting for reply

        Thanks
        Alam

      2. Johnny says:

        yes, 16gb should work just fine with 100 of each, it does depends on how many actions you want to do with each account but it should be ok. 3-4 accounts per proxy is ok as well, you can use the same proxy for 3-4 twitter and 3-4 ig, you don’t need different proxies for that. as for the url, especially for ig you need to find a way to cloak your link because if they see the same url on multiple accounts they will close them fast.

  13. Timothy R says:

    Hey Johnny, thanks for taking time to help others progress. question, i followed all the steps and I’m setting up my Cloud Stack , i selected ‘MILANO/DC2′ but under that selection its asking for me to choose “TEMPLATE’ or “ISO”, I’m not sure what to select because it wasn’t mentioned above(or their software changed since your article), or maybe I’m looking in the wrong place. I just don’t want to set it up wrong and cause future headaches. please help if you can,

    1. Johnny says:

      Yes, they changed a lot and aren’t as good as they used to be so I’ve been looking for the last couple of weeks at other options, if you can wait 2 more days as I will update the recommendation to something better.

  14. Fattah says:

    Can i run 12 accounts with the amazon’s vps ?

    1. Johnny says:

      It depends how much you’ll do with each of the 12, but yeah, it should work.

  15. Michael says:

    Is the vps from greencloud still reliable?
    Are greencloudvps’s proxies stable and reliable?

    1. Johnny says:

      yes, their vps are good, as for proxies, we have a different recommendation but you can try them as well if you wish.

      1. Michael says:

        Thanks, BTW MP-the best bot of all bots for social marketer junkies !!!

  16. Kirill says:

    Dear friends, I see many of us have hundreds of accounts for MP, I have 2, I wonder what are these hundreds for? I am beginner and would like, if you can, to know potential of such quantity, What do you do with it? Thanks)

    1. Johnny says:

      It’s for scaling up. Basically if you figure out a method to make say $10 per day with one account, wouldn’t you want to try and do $100 per day with 10 accounts, or $1000 with 100 accounts? Granted, it doesn’t always work like that and it can be a lot of work to manage many accounts but that doesn’t stop people from trying.

  17. Dewlance says:

    This work on Windows Server 2016? I want to use it on Windows Server 2016.

    1. Johnny says:

      It should work, yes

  18. Scott says:

    Hey Johnny, so I have been using another automation system for the past 8 months, using AWS, and just started to use MP, when i go to install it to AWS, it says ‘the system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation’. Do you know anything about this? And why It might be doing it? I’m trying the recommended download option

    1. Johnny says:

      Not sure, just download the filed directly and run it from there, no need for an installation.

  19. ddizzle says:

    I have about 10-15 accounts with each posting around 8 times a day. I also repost/scrape around 1,000-1,500 images a day from IG (and soon Pinterest). Do you think the free Amazon VPS account would be sufficient for that or not fast enough? Thanks

    1. Johnny says:

      I think you need something better for that, the account might post, but the images will probably go over the bandwidth limit.

  20. Jay says:

    Great Content! Is the main reason for getting a VPS for the 24/7 computing power? – Also maybe a separate note, if you’re running 4-5 IG accounts from one computer where you’re using MP to like/follow/unfollow – does IG ever block people that have lots of traffic from a single IP(computer)?

    1. Johnny says:

      ask that on our community forum here we have a lot of very friendly members ๐Ÿ˜‰

  21. Derek says:

    Why cant I connect my ms in my vps that is a Windows server, the firewall has exception set ok with ms
    Other software do not have this problem

    1. Johnny says:

      Not sure I understand what you mean, can you add a screenshot?

      1. Derek Fitch says:

        My massplanner is not working, it tells me I have 121 days left on license, but cannot run the software so cannot send screenshot

      2. Johnny says:

        Use the contact form on the site to contact support, it’s the same one as in the software.

  22. Derek Fitch says:

    Why ?

  23. Ste says:

    Hi if my VPS with Mass Planner running is in US hence the
    IP address is from there, but I use instagram on my phone from another country, will instagram flag my account as dangerous?

    1. Johnny says:

      It might have a problem with that, yes, check out this topic to learn more : http://mpsocial.com/t/updated-2-0-what-not-to-do-instagram/433
