Step-by-Step Guide: How to Access the VNC Viewer for VPS in your Client Portal

Virtual Network Computing (VNC) is a remote desktop protocol that enables users to access and control a graphical desktop environment of a remote server or computer, including a Virtual Private Server (VPS). VNC access provides a secure and encrypted way of remotely interacting with a VPS, giving users the ability to perform tasks such as software installation, system configuration, and maintenance through a graphical user interface (GUI). With VNC access, users can manage and administer their VPS from anywhere in the world, troubleshoot any issues that may arise, and monitor their server's performance. It is a powerful tool that simplifies the task of remotely administering a VPS, and enables users to perform various tasks conveniently, without having to rely on command-line interfaces.
