Virtual Private Server (VPS)
A Virtual Private Sever (VPS) is a hosted server that allows MetaTrader 4 terminals to run seamlessly, 24 hours a day whilst the FOREX Market is open.
Virtual Hosting is particularly useful for those who use automated trading strategies (Expert Advisors).
This dependability allows traders using Expert Advisors (EA) or algorithm to trade for 24 hours with no down time possibly caused by localised issues at their own personal computer with a key example being internet connection issues.
MetaTrader Platform VPS:
MetaTrader allows you to host your own VPS through the platform from one of their 7 global services.
To do so, right-click on the MT4 account you wish to host on a VPS service in the navigator, and click on ‘Request a Virtual Server’.
