I hate having to store my files offline, because eventually my hard drives fill up, and I have to burn off some data to make extra space. Burning data requires discs, and that costs money. The burning process is tedious and time consuming as well. A better solution for me is a budget Windows VPS. With a VPS, all I have to do is log in and start uploading files. The files would still be there as long as I had access to the VPS. The only limiting factor would be my upload speed, but even that would be faster than burning data.
A friend of mine told me about a VPS he was using and I signed up with them. Their VPS was pretty good and even better than I expected it to be for the price. Usually when you work with budget services, you have to skimp on quality somewhere, but not with this VPS. If anything, the VPS offered some things that many of the higher priced VPS companies didn’t offer. It’s nice to know that some companies still see the value in passing on savings to their consumers.
Since I no longer have to use my hard drive space to store files, nor do I have to buy discs to burn data, I decided to buy some games and download them. There was a game sale where I could get 50 games for around $30. I spend the entire week downloading and installing all of the games, and then gradually played them over the next few months. I have to work during the week, so I was only able to play the games during the weekend and at night before going to bed. It was a little bit of enjoyment that I hadn’t been able to experience in a long time.Read more
