If you are a serious Forex trader, and want to keep your MetaTrader 4 platform running 24 hours a day, a virtual private server (VPS) is ideal. A VPS uses an external server to manage your trading connectivity ensuring that the MT4 platform is running 24 hours a day and is not subject to downtime caused by electrical or computer problems. Many Forex traders use VPS technology to ensure that their Expert Advisors (Forex trading robots) can run non-stop.
A VPS is essentially another computer running hosted servers. The user interacts simply by logging in through any stable desktop or mobile device. The main benefit is that you don’t need to keep your own Forex trading computer running at home 24/7, and you don’t need to depend on your internet or power connection in order for the Forex VPS to keep running – as this is ensured by the host.
The Forex VPS registration process is as simple as creating your own account, logging in to your Forex VPS, and setting up your Expert Advisor like you normally would on your own home computer. You’re also able to set up any other online MT4 trading platform through your VPS.
Once you’ve set everything up, simply disconnect and go about your normal day, with the confidence that you can turn off your home computer without missing a Forex trade!
