VPS (Virtual Private Server) for MetaTrader

Forex VPS

To use an expert advisor in a serious manner as part of an automated trading strategy, it is strongly recommended that one use a VPS server.

A VPS (Virtual Private Server) acts as a virtual machine, operating 24h/day on a server that's specially dedicated to running an EA on the MetaTrader trading platform.

Traders therefore do not need to leave their computers on. Furthermore, this protects them from internet connection failures, power failures and equipment accidents.

By opening an account with a VPS provider, a trader can access the virtual server via his or her usual web browser and login details. The server runs like a remote computer - traders can install the MetaTrader trading platform on it and configure their EAs.



Main advantages of using a Forex VPS

  • They provide a solid and reliable platform to launch an automated forex trading application.
  • The software can run continuously, 24h/day.
  • Hosted servers are constantly monitored to ensure availability, which ensures continuity of operation.
  • It is possible to run several MT4 platforms and EAs with the same account.
  • You can easily access the VPS from anywhere through the internet.
  • VPS hosting provides control, security and flexibility in your trading.

By using a VPS that is special dedicated to forex traders, the hosting environment will already have been configured and optimised for Forex trading. The MetaTrader platform will typically already be installed.
