How to use Webpc
Step 1 – Go to https://webpc.io
Click Get Started button.
On this page, choose Desktop. We will discuss Desktop environments for this guide. Although, you can also get a VPN with us, where we support fully managed Wireguard and OpenVPN servers.
Once you choose Desktop, a small menu will pop up where you can select your configuration.
Although, if you choose a bigger machine or a different country like the USA, the price will increase. You are only paying per hour here and it’s not some subscription where you have to unsubscribe to stop using it. It’s much easier; you can create as many or as few machines as you want and choose the hours you need.
You can also choose to pay with your favorite crypto.
After finishing your payment, you will be redirected back to webpc to a page like this:
Now, please wait until the machine is set up and ready for you to use; the page will update automatically until it’s ready.
Also, since we don’t have a registration, make sure you copy that key in the middle or bookmark the page in your browser.
Once your machine is set up and ready, your screen will look like this:
To connect, copy your password and click connect.
A small prompt will ask you for that password, and once you enter it, you are on your secure virtual desktop straight from your browser. Where you also have full root access.
Webpc is perfectly accessible, you can use your browser to connect to a server or your favorite VNC client. Pay only for what you use per hour, starting at 2$.
We also have excellent live chat support to help you if you run into any problems, but please make sure you save your key.
