Hi guys and gals,
Yesterday I spring cleaned my VPS set-up. Upgraded some VPSs and installed everything new. It feels fresh and crisp…
Made me think that it might be a good moment to inform you (for the ones that don’ t know about it) that you can choose and run your own vps at aws.amazon.com.
They are the cheapest that I have seen and I worked with them for years now. You can actually run a vps for free for a year (a tiny one), but you will find that out when you look on their site.
Of course you can go as cheap or as expensive as you want. I get a pretty good latency <8 ms in their data center Virginia. Their tiniest vps is enough to run two MT4 instances (but just). When you are not scalping this should be enough for most of you guys. I have larger servers, but you can grow as you go.
Why whould you consider this?
- when you have a poor or unreliable internet connection and you like to run a script.
- when you can’t have your own pc turned on all day.
- when you want to use a IP-address from the US.
Have a look. I may prepare a ‘howto’-thread, but that is too much work atm.
Feel free to ask questions when you need a hand (I am not going to spoon feed you).
