Purchasing and Getting Started

This guide will help answer general questions on purchasing a Windows VPS and getting started.

1. Select Your Plan

Navigate to https://sonoranservers.com and select Virtual Private Servers (VPS) or Dedicated Servers

We offer several server configurations depending on your needs. For most gaming servers, we recommend the Windows 4-6 or 4-8 VPS plan. However, you can always upgrade your vCPU, RAM, and SSD storage resources at any time. Dedicated Servers are available for when you require more power to run many applications at once.

2. Configure Your Server

After selecting your plan, there will be more options available to configure your VPS. You can add on additional RAM or SSD storage as needed.

Dedicated Servers vary a little bit but follow very similar steps, due to the nature of dedicated servers, configuration options are more limited.

Configure Server:

  • Hostname: This is just a label for your VPS. You can put your name, your community name, or something else.

  • Root Password - For Windows VPS servers, the password must contain at least 3 of the following:

    • One Uppercase Letter

    • One Lowercase Letter

    • One Number

    • One Symbol (!, $, #, %)

  • NS1/NS2:

    • For NS1 and NS2, simply type in ns1 and sn2

After configuring your server, press continue.

3. Checkout and Login

Next, you will fill out your account and payment information.

Once you have completed your purchase, you will receive an email with your login information. View our guide on using Windows remote desktop and access your VPS below.
