Best Forex VPS Hosting (Metatrader 4 VPS Host) + Discount

Best Forex VPS Host

If running your computer or laptop 24/7 is not a viable option for you to run your forex expert advisors to their full potential, then a forex VPS is what you want.

A VPS is a virtual private server that you can remotely connect to from your computer/laptop at home. When you connect, it will be a fresh new empty windows desktop. You can use it just like you would use any other windows based computer. Go on internet explorer, download your favourite browser, download metatrader 4, and install them the exact same way you do on your computer. There is no console commands, or crazy procedures to follow to run a windows based VPS for forex trading.

Forex VPS Tutorial (See how easy it is to use a VPS for reliable 24/7 forex trading)

Picking The Right VPS Host:

I originally started with VPS Land because of their lower prices and double up ram feature. Wow!! is their marketing ever deceiving. I figured with a 2048MB RAM VPS server I could easily run 30+ Metatrader platforms with each instance usually only consuming 5,000 to 12,000 K of memory. What a rude awakening that was! Not only was the remote desktop connection laggy with nothing running, I was only able to run at most 5 Metatrader 4 platforms that BARELY ran. They are either lying about their specs, or extremely OVER CROWDED. Regardless, I didn’t even last a month with VPS Land before cancelling my subscription.

I moved on to InterServer where for just $10 to start with 1 cpu core and 1gb of ram, I was easily able to run 2 MT4 instances with no lag or slow downs what so ever. Their cheapest windows vps cloud server is $10, and each additional slice for an extra GB of ram is +$10. If you move up to 5 slices, you get an additional CPU core. You shouldn’t need this unless you plan to run 12+ MT4 instances. General rule of thumb is each slice will run 2-3 MT4s no problem.

So don’t get sucked into the marketing and mis-conceptions, go with what works from experience. Go with InterServer

Now once you have a forex VPS setup, and can remote connect to it, your MT4 setup on the vps and connected to your forex account, you will want to get your expert advisors on to the VPS. There are a few ways to do this: The easiest way is to just e-mail them to yourself and then load up your e-mail account on the VPS and download them.

    Hi, Gays.

    I tried to open an account in the VPS Ultrahosting. But refused to open my account because I live in Brazil.

    Do not understand this?

    Can someone explain to me why a country that is the world’s seventh largest economy is not accepted by Ultra Hosting?

      You can run many MT4 terminals on one VPS, but you generally want to seperate each robot for individual accounts. Atleast that’s something that I’ve always done for organization and tracking purposes.

      Also while 1 broker may be good for 1 ea, it may not be good for another ea. Scalpers in particular like Million Dollar Pips and Fap Turbo require very low spread brokers with fast execution times, where as something like Forex Hacked is far less sensitive to such things and can run on just about any broker.

    Hey admin,

    Im runnig a vps F20 on ultrahosting. I have 5 mt4 runnings currently. Any knowledge on why I would have two of the same positions for each platform? for example I would have a position open for .01 and the corresponding positions should be 1 position at .02. Instead of having only one of those, I have 2 .02 positions.

    Would you know why?

        I’m a newbie & I plan to use VPS for my Forex trading. I plan to run 3 robots with 3 different brokers. My question is, can I run 3 X MT4 trading platforms from 3 different brokers on UltraHosting VPS-F5 package, and each broker with 1 live & 1 demo accounts? Is VPS-F5 fast/good enough to run them? Because from the specification of VPS-F5, the recommended number of MT4 is 2. Thx

        • Joe Stevens Reply
          Aug 28, 2013 @ 12:11 pm

          You should be able to run more than 2 instances of MT4 on that plan. I’m on a higher plan, but am still running over their recommended limit with no problems.

  • nick Reply
    Oct 22, 2011 @ 12:41 pm


    what sort of vps hosting do you recommend if eventually i have 20+ mt4 platforms running? would the one your using currently be sufficient enough? (1028mb server) when should you increase to the 2048 mb?


    • admin Reply
      Oct 22, 2011 @ 14:16 pm

      You could probably get away with 20 at ultrahosting with 1028mb. If it becomes a problem you may want to consider getting 2 smaller vps so you have the same or close to the same memory, but double the CPU.

      • nick Reply
        Oct 25, 2011 @ 18:23 pm

        so maybe like 2 vps plans each with about 512mb of memory running 10 mt4 platforms each?

    when using vps, when we login to meta4 terminal, there is an option to save account information. what do you prefer and usually do, you choose to save account information so next time you login to metatrader, no need to retype your user name and password again.. leave this option blank ? very interested in your opinion.

    What is the purpose of installing multiple instances of MT4 for one broker? If I only have one account but many charts running on a few EAs, is it better to separate them into different instances rather than have them running on one instance? Newbie here 🙂

    also can you do a similar article and ranking for robots best suited for mini accounts (like 3 digit accounts)…

    All other VPS I know had never do this.

      After you install the first instance of metatrader 4 from lets say Alpari UK. Run the install again, but this time change the directory it gets install to.

      For Example:
      C:\Program Files\Metatrader 4 Alpari UK\
      C:\Program Files\Metatrader 4 Alpari UK 2\
