What is a Forex VPS server?
VPS server is a computer located in a specialized data center. Such a computer is practically no different from a home desktop computer. Its differences are only in the fact that it works around the clock, its stable operation is monitored around the clock by professional administrators. On a remote server, you can do everything you do on your home computer: install and uninstall MetaTrader applications, launch the browser, copy and delete files and so on. VPS servers are widely used in many areas. Websites work, large databases are stored, and cloud storages are created on such servers. In trading, VPSes help traders to trade automated trading strategies around the clock.
How secure are VPS servers?
A separate VPS server is created in the data center for every customer. At the time of creation, the server is assigned a unique IP-address, port, username and password. All this data is transmitted to the user or stored in the user's personal account. If the user securely stores the login data, then there is almost no threat of theft of intellectual property or any data. Server deployment technologies involve reliable and secure data storage using encryption systems. This means that without the login data, no one can get any information from your VPS. You will also not be able to get your data if you lose your username and password.
Can I use my personal computer instead of a VPS?
Yes! You can. Your computer must always be turned on, have stable Internet access, and be protected from malware and network attacks. You should understand that any failure of electricity or the Internet, in your absence, can lead to unpredictable consequences. You will also have to get used to the fact that there will be noise at home from the constantly switched-on computer. In trading, when a home computer running in VPS mode fails, the amount of losses can be much more than the annual cost of renting a reliable and stable server in a data center.
How to connect to the Forex VPS server?
There are a large number of programs available for connecting to VPS servers, including free ones. Each computer already has a standard program for connecting to the VPS server by default. In most cases, such programs are called RDP clients. If you enter RDP on your computer in the search, your computer will find the "Remote Desktop Connection” program. This is a default simple application for connecting to the server. You can also use other applications, such as mRemote or AnyDesk. When renting a VPS server, you will be provided with all the data and instructions for connecting to the rented server.
Will I be able to connect from my smartphone?
Yes! You will be. There are a large number of applications for smartphones and even for TVs, with which you can go to your VPS server anywhere where there is a connection and check what is happening there.
Where is the VPS server located?
Almost all high-tech data centers are located in Europe.
What virtualization technology is used in VPS from Trading-Go?
There are several remote desktop virtualization technologies available. All these technologies are built on the segmentation of the physical server. Simply put, there is a remote physical server computer with a specific set of resources. With the help of cloning and virtualization technology, a large number of independent VPS servers can be created on a single physical server. Every server works independently of other servers. The segmentation of a physical server can be based on terminal technology (with this technology, some highly loaded VPS servers can take resources from less loaded servers) and on the technology of isolated VPS servers (with this technology, each VPS keeps its own set of resources constant and cannot expand or shrink due to neighboring servers.) For servers from Trading-Go, an isolated technology is used: the preservation of leased resources is guaranteed, regardless of the server load or the load on the neighboring servers.
