Terminal Server Hosting FAQs
What is Terminal Server Hosting?
Terminal Servers or now known as Remote Desktop Servers are Windows server computers that allow multiple users to connect to them over a network to run the same applications. They were originally designed for organisations with multiple sites running client server applications where connecting desktop software to a back-end server over a Wide Area Network would be too slow. On a Terminal Server everything runs on the server.
A Hosted Terminal Server makes use of faster internet speeds to host the server in a commercial data centre and users can connect over the internet. The hosted Terminal Server is maintained and supported by the provider.
What does a Terminal Server do?
A Terminal Server runs desktop applications in the same way that a Windows PC does. The only difference is that multiple people can connect to the Terminal Server over a network (or the Internet) to run these applications at the same time. This enables the users to be located anywhere but the software and the data, documents or databases it uses are close together on the same site/network, meaning optimal performance and stability.
What is the difference between a server and a Terminal Server?
Servers have many different roles. A standard File Server which is the staple of many small businesses just keeps shared data e.g. Office documents, and users can connect to the shared data, drag a copy of the document to their PC and edit it using applications on their PC. On a Terminal Server the Office application e.g. Microsoft Word is running on the Terminal Server, so the document does not need to travel across the network. Ideal if the users is on another site.
What do I need to set up Terminal Server Hosting?
With Your Office Anywhere we set up everything on the Terminal Server for you. All you need to do is provide us with the software you want to run, who needs to run it, and any existing data you want to move (migrate) to the server.
What are the benefits of Terminal Server Hosting?
There are many benefits to Terminal Server Hosting including:
- The ability to run your shared Windows desktop applications from anywhere in the world
- The ability to run these application when using non-Windows devices
- Removing the need for local IT support
- Reducing IT Cap-Ex costs instead paying monthly subscription
- Flexibility to increase or decrease user numbers as needed.
Is a Hosted Terminal Server secure?
Both Your Office Anywhere and the commercial data centre where we keep our servers are ISO 27001 certified for our Information Security Management system. This means we have documented processes and procedures to keep data secure and are audited annually to ensure we are following them.
Can I run any application on a Hosted Terminal Server?

Can I connect to a Hosted Terminal Server from abroad?
