A virtual private server (VPS) is an exclusive piece of a server which is hosted in a high specification data centre. Each VPS is completely “private” from the other hosted VPS and functions the same as a dedicated server.
It performs and executes exactly like a stand-alone computer with its own hardware, resources and bandwidth. It is built to never fail and has no single point of hardware failure so ensures a reliable and secure infrastructure for online automated trading.
A VPS provides the solution to the common forex trading problem – location and high speed technology, which is one of the key elements of successful automated forex trading, especially when operating in a high frequency environment. With traders disparately located all over the globe, it is of utmost importance that in order to reduce the time (latency) it takes for the traders MT4 terminal to see a price update or for an order to be sent and executed by the broker, the trader’s PC needs to be physically located as close as possible to the trading server.
Latency is the measure in time that it takes a message to go from a VPS to a broker/liquidity provider, this is usually measured in milliseconds. If you are using a popular expert advisor, there are literally tens of thousands of people trying to place the same trade at the same time. There is a finite amount of liquidity up for grabs to these traders before slippage occurs. The lower your latency is the more chance you have of getting filled at the best price and more chance of making money on the specific trade.
Not all VPS’s are built equally! We connect clients to trading servers which are hosted in a dedicated low latency suite in the London Equinix Data Center. Additionally, by utilising a BeeksFX, CNS VPS or UltraFX VPS traders benefit from little to no latency from the VPS to the trading server. This is because the actual server hosting your VPS is physically located in the same data centre with a direct optical fibre connection to the trading server. This is known as a ‘Cross Connect’ and is the standard for professional automated traders looking to achieve 0.4 millisecond trade latency.
