A VPN or Virtual Private Server is a virtual machine, essentially a server running within a server. Generally consisting of one physical server separated into multiple virtual server, each isolated from the others. Meaning the user is not limited to a ‘one size fits all’ situation, as when using a shared hosting sever. A VPS allows the user to run multiple applications and soft ware configurations as well as providing increased power and performance to handle increased online traffic or increased connection speeds to service providers.
The traffic and activities of other VPS users do not affect the operations and performance of others, as with shared host servers. Having your own allotment of resources provided by your VPS allows you and other VPS users to enjoy faster load and connection speeds. Furthermore, a VPS hosting provides the user with increased disk space, CPU and RAM.
Virtual Private Servers are an ideal tool for Forex traders. A VPS results in reduced latency between customer and servers’ providers.
