    As a number of members like to use a VPS to run their software and can experience problems due to the wide variety of VPS systems on the market, each with their own setup/problems. We've investigated and found one VPS supplier which we were able to successfully run our software on without some of the issues experinced on some VPS systems. Below are details of how to get your own VPS plus steps to install the required pre-requisites.

    Recommended Specs -> Hyper V Windows VPS, 2 slice, 2 Core, 4GB RAM, Windows 64bit 2019 Standard.
