Which VPS plan do i need?

At ForexVPS.net we do sell VPS plans with more CPU cores but, we actually recommend for MT4 traders the Basic+ single CPU core VPS plan instead of buying the Standard or Professional plan for multiple CPU cores. In testing we’ve found MT4 doesn’t run as well (when virtualized) with heavily loaded or a large number of MT4 terminals running on multiple CPU core plans like in the larger Standard or Professional VPS plans.

In our experience, you are better to use multiple VPS’s and split your platforms between them instead of investing in a multi core server because you’ll get better performance for your investment.


2012 memory


Monitor your VPS CPU and memory usage with “Windows Task Manager” (shortcut CTRL-SHIFT-ESC) and when you see CPU utilization too high persistently then you should buy an additional Basic+ plan. Memory upgrades are available at any time for any plan. Please note the Basic plan VPS is designed to run 2 to 4 terminals depending on their exact configuration.

New broker tools

For more information please contact your account manager who will be more than happy to show you round the new features.

If there are any articles that you’d like published please feel free to send us a support request and we’ll endeavor to get something written. Over the coming weeks we’ll be adding more to the knowledge base.

Integrated tickets

We have now integrated our Kayako ticket software with ForexVPS so you can now open and close tickets from within your client area. To open a new ticket, simply login to your client portal by clicking on the “Client Panel” in the navigation, login and you’ll now see an “open ticket” button. Click this and you’ll be able to open a ticket without being redirected to our helpdesk.

This will hopefully speed up the ability to open and speak with our team. Don’t forget we are always around for a live chat if you need to talk to someone right away!
