  1. Is remote desktop available on sites hosted by Winhost?

    Remote desktop is not supported since our platform is a shared hosting platform.

    It's not but you can use FTP to upload the files.

    You can use an FTP client like FileZilla. FileZilla can be downloaded here:

    To learn how to connect to your site using FileZilla please read our knowledge base article here:

    We also give you the ability to connect to the site via IIS Manager:

    If you want to connect to your MS SQL database you can use SQL Server Management Studio:
    Elshadriel and CurtisG like this.
  4. I should be able to do what I need through FTP. I spend half my day in a Mac environment so I don't suppose IIS Manager will work there. But FTP should be fine.

    Right, if you us a Mac you won't be able to use IIS Manager but you will be able to create the web.config file with the rules you wish to use and upload that file to the root of the site account.
