Connecting to your VPS or Server via Windows

There are many ways to remote connect to your ChartVPS server/VPS, and you can do so from nearly any device, be it desktop, laptop, tablet, smartphone, or anything in-between. Our recommended, tried-and-tested, and free method is via Microsoft's Remote Desktop app. It's available for every major operating system, including Windows, Mac OS, iOS, and Android.

Connecting via Windows

All versions of Windows include a built-in app for remote connections. To launch it, click on Start, search for Remote Desktop Connection, and click on it when it pops up

Under Computer enter the IP Address that was sent to you via email shortly after you signed up with ChartVPS

Click Show Options

Under_ User name_ enter the username that was sent you in the same email as above

Optionally, check the Allow me to save credentials box if you'd like the credentials saved - this way you don't have to keep entering the password every time you wish to connect to your server or VPS

Click on Connect

Enter the password (included in the same email) - make sure this is the server password and not, the email includes 2 separate sets of login credentials

In case you skipped step 5, you'll have another chance to save the credentials for future connections by checking Remember Me - if you checked the box in 5, Remember Me will already be preselected

Press OK - this will connect you to the server

Enjoy! ( having 9 steps seemed incomplete :)

Alternative: if you are having trouble with the above method, try downloading and running the Remote Desktop app from the Microsoft Store:
