VPS (Virtual Private Server) hosting allows Forex traders to run automated algorithmic strategies, including EA’s (expert advisors) on a Virtual Machine. Using a VPS solution reduces concerns about your computer shutting down or broadband not being available at a particular time. FP Markets has partnered with TradersColo and BeeksFX VPS, to provide a customized low latency solution for our traders. The FP Markets Edition VPS seamlessly connects traders to the Equinix NY4 grid using cutting edge technology.
This server side solution includes state of the art hardware and virtualization technology delivering a solution without the cost or complexity of trading clustering solutions. The core infrastructure is housed in the Equinix New York Data Center, benefiting Active and Algorithmic (EA) traders.
If you are running EAs, it is vital that your platform is connected to our servers 24 hours a day.
You can always access your VPS. There are two main options for this. Firstly, you can get access through the standard Windows Remote Desktop Connection software. This gives you full access to the server and enables you to set-up your EAs as well as install any other useful services that sit alongside MT4. The second option is to monitor your account in real time using our mobile platform. We believe this may be a more convenient method to monitor your VPS while on the move.
Because the VPS is running in a data centre, you don’t have to leave your computer on at home which means that you can turn off all your devices at home while still being safe in the knowledge that your trading strategies are continuing. Select one of partners below to receive a VPS Solution from as little as $25 per month.
The VPS runs all day, every day. That means you should never miss your target price.
By using a professional data centre, it is very likely that the data connection speed can be faster than your home broadband. That could mean your execution speed is better than you are able to get at home. We have selected a provider located close to our own MT4 servers to maximise the speed of your trading.
