Why we should trade forex in a VPS ?

There are plenty of reasons, but here is some main reasons:

+ Super high internet connection speed. Normally, VPS come with 1Gbps connection. Your MT5 will connect faster and execute in seconds.

+ Online 24/7. VPS is a server and it works 24/7. All you need is run MT4/5 and turn off the RDP windows. VPS will remain online and run your MT4/MT5 24/7.

+ Security. All VPS which is running windows OS, is very security. Windows Server has its firewall and without any pre-installed programs. So by default, It does not have virus or any type of high risk program.


Ok, Now we will start the processing. It is very simple and easy to install MT4/5.

We are using Windows server 2008 R2 with 1.2 GB of RAM.
