VPS stands for Virtual Private Server. A VPS uses virtualization technology to “split” one physical hardware server into multiple virtual servers. The word ‘private’ implies that each Virtual server has its own resources so you won’t have to share RAM and CPU with other users. Additionally, since each VPS is a different layer on the physical server it can have its own Operating System and host data in non-shared hard disk sectors which enhance the VPS’ performance & the user’s data security.
Among various benefits that a VPS offers to a user, we have summarized the 3 most important reasons to use it when trading forex:
VPS Servers that are used for Forex Trading will have Windows Operating System. In most VPS providers you will be asked to choose among Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2016 or latest. Any of these are good to be chosen.
In terms of the hardware resources, the minimum requirements you should seek to properly run your Trading terminal are:
40GB Hard Disk
1 Public Dedicated IP
No Antivirus, No Firewall (unless you are an experienced user)
The above specs can be altered/upgraded depending on the number of trading terminals you wish to run simultaneously.
