I am with ForexVPS as well. I do have to say they have very good customer service. I have never had any problems with them. I do say using a VPS is the only way to go, no worries about the power going out or the internet connection failing. And being able to access it from anywhere is nice.

I been running on remote servers for years.

But I don't use the virtual ones. And definitely not one who's advertising specifically for MT4. Costs a bit more, but I think I'm substantially safer.

Sometimes I run for months without even logging in. I set MT up in the start-up menu, and then have an auto re-boot once a day in case there's a memory leak or something. If the server gets re-boot for whatever reason my stuff will just come right back up with the server.

In the last few years I can't say I've had any significant down time or interruptions. And using different directories I run up to 8 versions of MT4 on a server. Racing different variations of code to see who does best...

As said above, no more worries about electricity and net issues...

I do suggest though keeping an eye on memory use, we had severe problems with 100% CPU usage leading to missed trades...

Automated re-boots goes a long way towards solving that.

And if you're really paranoid you can always write into your code that Mt sends you an sms or mail alert say every hour and if you don't get one you know the servers not on....

i don't really know to be honest, they've changed their name so many times and I rarely deal with them, my partner does, I just log into the server using remote desktop.

Godaddy and the likes offer similar stuff. Mine used to be Excite before the server industry apparently went for a mega consolidation. No idea what they call themselves now days, I'll find out when I speak to my partner again...

I wouldn't go for companies specializing in forex servers. That means they know what you're doing and if owned by the mafia they'll have full access to your code. Go for companies who specializes in servers.
