1and1 Windows VPS


I just signed up with 1and1 for a windows 2008 vps. After RDPing into the desktop, I notice there is not a IIS Manager but instead on the desktop there is a Parallels hosting manager. Is there any way to remove this and just manage my website with IIS manager. I am using this vps for learning purposes and so I rather just deal with the default apps that came with windows server 2008.

If this can't be done on 1and1, is there another provider than provides cheap windows 2008 vps?

Did you order the server with a control panel?

I think they just threw it in. I didnt have the option of removing it. It was the cheapest windows 2008 vps I came across. The default installed image comes with Parallels SB Panel 10. I webt to the Server Re-image section and there are 3 options.
1. Windows Web Server 2008 with Parallels SB Panel 10 (64-bit)
2. Windows Web Server 2008 R2 (64 Bit)
3. Windows Web Server 2008 with Parallels Plesk Panel 10 (64-bit)

I wonder if option 2 comes with IIS7 installed?

Have you contacted 1&1 and told them this? What did they tell you?

Its always best to contact the provider first, before seeking a new option.

I would try option 2. It's most likely a template pre-configured with parallels.

hi,
I am trying but can't seem to get a hold of anyone. The funny part is I reimaged it with option 2 described in my previous post and after reimaging when I log on, I get a windows 2003 server login.

You should contact them and have them switch to the right manager you wanted. If they don't just look for any other provider who can offer you what you are looking for specifically. For learning purposes though, you were right in wanting the other manager.
