Recommended VPS
« on: September 02, 2019, 02:49:00 PM »
Since an EA needs to run 24/5. A VPS is an indispensable tool for the SFE EAs. That is why I want to ask those that are using EAs and specifically the SFE EAs which VPS' they recommend?

I am using Commercial Network Services VPS which is “On Net” with IC Markets and the latency is supposed to be less than 1ms. :)

For the SFE EAs, enter some seconds before of after don't have to be relevant.

I use this cheap VPS Cloud Ram 1 and I have 6 metatraders in the VPS without problem 24x7 and without restart the VPS never. You can chose a datacenter in canada, that is very near of NY, where a lot of brokers have his datacenters.

If you manage other EAs, then maybe this VPS is not enough (for open 5-6 metatraders) , because my EAs are very lightweight in CPU and RAM consumption, but other EAs maybe are not the case.

In another post i have mentioned that i am of the belief that Virtual Servers (VPS) is not good in forex. But 100% dedicated servers are.

I just came across this company. I dont know them, but homepage looks decent, and so do the prices. So i thought i should pass it on here.

https://dedicated.com/

For me, i use Codero, but they seems a bit more expensive.

Hi to Everyone.

Thought i would share this link with you.

A friend of mine took one with 32GB Ram and allowed me to log in. Never seen anything as fast before. Think the prices has come to a decent price level. I dont know the company in any details.

Looks nice, dedicated server for $9 per month. I am a bit tempted...::)

Their server is also located in NY which is close to IC Markets. Have you tested and see what their latency is to IC Markets?

No I have not . My friend who took this offer is also a forex Trader but does not use ICM (he is American) .. and i am actually in doubt which location he has (chosen server location). I just checked his ping and enclose a screenshot.  But at another note, personally i dont believe in the "theory" that low latency has any impact in the long run, unless you are high frequency trader. Spread and processor speed is must more important in my opinion.
