As you must already know, virtual private server is a dedicated server that is capable of running a separate operating system, so that customers can install any software on that operating system. This is necessary because, as the name implies, a dedicated server offers speed, security, guaranteed network connectivity, as well as a reduced administration cost.
However, this hosting service is not only suitable for websites; it has been found to play a significant role also in FOREX trading. To make more profit in FOREX trading, you must have maximum uptime, guaranteed internet connection, high speed and enhanced security. These are exactly what the FOREX VPS offers.
FOREX VPS allows you to upload your EAs to it; and because virtual servers are dedicated servers, they give you the maximum uptime that you ordinarily would not have. Therefore, when you are not logged on to your trading account, the EAs continue to send trading orders to your broker. As a result, your expected profits remain in intact.
In addition to a maximum uptime, a FOREX VPS also offers other interesting features that will certainly improve your trading. These are minimal latency, increased speed, and extra security and much more, depending on the VPS provider you settle for. This means that before you subscribe to any VPS service, you must first consider the FOREX server hardware.
THINGS TO CONSIDER IN A FOREX VPS HARDWARE
VPS technology is the ultimate feature to consider in a FOREX VPS hardware. Usually, a virtual machine shares the system resources among the users on it. However, this could impede performance and speed. Therefore, this is not the kind of server you want for your FOREX trading.
In order to have the flawless performance and speed that you require, it is important to go for a server that uses a highly virtualized hardware and maximum system resources. Choose a server hardware that provides complete isolation from other VM and gives you a space of your own.
Speed and Bandwidth
This is another factor to consider before you settle for a FOREX VPS. You want your VPS to have as little latency as possible; because it is this criterion that determines the speed at which your trading decisions are executed. This is quite simple, the lower your VPS latency, the higher the working speed of your expert advisors.
A latency of 1 – 20 milliseconds is considered acceptable, but anything more than that is not recommended.
Memory and Back Up
A high-performance VPS hardware should also feature maximum resources and storage is one of those.
First, you have to consider how many brokers you want to run on the server before opting for a particular storage size. However, a good VPS hardware should offer at least the minimum memory for 3 brokers and reserve an opportunity for upgrade in the future.
Also, consider the backup plan of the provider. A highly optimized VPS should be able to back up data frequently, as well as restore these data rapidly when it is required.
Maximum uptime is an important feature of a FOREX VPS. As a matter fact, it could be the main reason why a FOREX trader should utilize a dedicated server in the first place. So, if a VPS hardware does not offer a maximum uptime, there is no need to opt for it.
For ultimate trade performance, it is always best to opt for a hardware that offers at least an uptime of 99.9% SLA. That way you are sure that your Expert Advisors are constantly connected to your broker, and are automatically executing trading orders.
One of the benefits of using a VPS for your FOREX trading is because of the added security that it has. Therefore, a good VPS hardware should be able to provide enhanced security to the trader.
Apart from protecting your trading information from hackers, a FOREX VPS should also be able to secure your data. After a backup, how secure is your data until when you need it?
Also, how secure is your data in the case of a system error or other inconveniences? A highly optimized hardware should use a RAID 10 technology because it offers a hardware level protection for your data.
There is no technology that is glitch-proof no matter how optimized it is. But, what can salvage the situation is a good customer support. Therefore, it is necessary to put into consideration the customer support of a VPS provider.
An efficient support should be able to answer all your questions, help with support at no additional cost and be available 24/7 to monitor the system.
