Has anyone experience to make use of a VPS for trading?

I wanted to make use of the VPS offer from MB Trading and I do not know what to fill in in the hostname asked by the PhotonVPS signup.

(
MB Trading make use of the PhotonVPS:
https://www.photonvps.com/mbt.html
)

I do not know what hostname to fill in?????
The support of PhotonVPS does not respond to my question.

Maybe here has anyone experience to make use of a VPS for trading?

Thanks in advance

I believe the hostname is simply a name to access your vps. So it is something like hostname.photonvps.com.
Please excuse me if I'm wrong. 😄

Yes,
But THEY should provide a name for access to their VPS. I make use of THEIR server, not the opposite. So my ip / address / hostname does not matter? Right?

Really weird... Anyone?

I just filled in www.google.com as hostname and they accepted it. So sorry to anyone if you come to my vps if you want to search something.

(serious mode)
Just got answer from them:

'Hello
Thank you for contacting us.
You can use any unique hostname as you want.
If you want to change hostname after vps creation no worry about it.'


problem solved. end of story

Very disappointed in the execution of the setup of my VPS at PhotonVPS. Their support promised me several times it would be up and running before weekend. Still I have nothing, but paid their invoice of course. Dammit.

Me:
Is it possible that the preparation of my VPS is done before weekend? I want to make use of it from Monday.

PhotonVPS(Mike Pan):
Hello,

Yes ! We will create your vps before week-end and we'll get back to you vps creation welcome mail.

Me:

PhotonVPS (Jeff Molan):

I use VPS since early 2008.
No problems so far.
Today I'm using a Cloud VPS, because they usualy are 100% uptime against 99.9 from VPS.
You may find good coupon codes for than in google.
Good research

I use two services for VPS servers to host MetaTrader 4 platforms, Metatrader247.com and IBFX. Both services are very good and the support at Metatrader247.com is excellent. If you have an IBFX account with over $5k the VPS service fee of $34.99 is reimbursed each month.

Cheers,

Update to my last post: MetaTrader247.com has closed its doors and I've moved my VM to UltraHosting.com. So far everything is excellent.

I have my own servers setup. Built especially for scalping. See my web site for details. I have a small group of traders.
