In this video I am going to demonstrate step by step how we can build our own virtual machine running Microsoft server 2019, from the original Microsoft ISOs. We are not going to use any compressed server image that is pre-built and given to us, in case it contains either a virus or mining software.
We are then going to deploy it on Contabo, on their smallest VPS, which still comes with 4 CPU Cores, 8 GB OF RAM, AND 200 GB of SSD, all for less than 10 dollars a month.
We could however easily deploy our built server 2019 image on another VPS provider, like digital ocean, linode, or vulture VPS, to name just a few, but for this video we are going to stick with Contabo as their VPSs have the most resources for the least amount of money.
Although the Microsoft ISO we will be getting is for windows server 2019, it could just as easily be for another version of windows server, windows 10, or even a version of Linux, and the process we will be following today , would basically be the same.
