Forex brokers with best VPS bundles

A few clients have asked me my opinion on the best VPS bundles that brokers offer. For those of you that do not know what a VPS is – read my detailed post about what is a VPS and which hosting companies do I recommend. In short, a VPS is a computer that you rent at a location very near your broker’s MT4 trading server to reduce latency. The VPS runs 24/7 so you can run your EAs and you won’t miss a trade.

From what I have researched, Global Prime offers the best VPS bundle. Here’s what they offer:

Global Prime VPS offerYou just need to trade 40 standard lots a month to get a top of the range Beeks Gold VPS (4 virtual CPU, 4 GB ram)

Now comparing FXPIG, you will need to trade 150 standard lots to get a Beeks Gold VPS.

Now let’s take a look at IC Markets. IC Markets requires a minimum volume of 100 lots per month in order to qualify for VPS sponsorship. IC Markets work with 3 reputable VPS companies, Simpletrader VPS, CNS and Beeks. I am familiar with CNS and Beeks, as I am currently using both companies’ VPS.

IC Markets VPS offer

IC Markets does not say what type of VPS they will sponsor (i.e Beeks bronze, sliver or gold, or CNS standard or value edition?), but from my previous experience, they sponsored up to $35.12 of my CNS VPS cost. That was 1 year ago. Currently, it looks like IC Markets will sponsor the full VPS amount. I am inferring this from the image below. Under the IC Markets section, it says IC Markets will sponsor any client who trades 100 lots or more in a month while other brokers say they will credit up to $35.12 of the VPS cost.

Finally looking at Axitrader, if you trade 100 lots or more a month, they will sponsor up to $35.12 of your VPS cost for CNS. For Beeks, there is 30% discount on the first month’s subscription and a complimentary additional 256MB of ram for your VPS. There is no minimum volume requirement for this.
