Forex brokers with best VPS bundles

This post has been updated on 8 Sep 2018 to reflect the latest VPS sponsorships available.

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, and IC Markets a close second. 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 15 lots per month in order to qualify for VPS sponsorship. IC Markets work with 3 reputable VPS companies, ForexVPS.net, CNS and Beeks. I am familiar with CNS and Beeks, as I am currently using both companies’ VPS.

IC Markets VPS offer

IC Markets will sponsor the following tiers of VPS for Commercial Network Services (CNS) and Beeks VPS:

15 lots – Elite Traders VPS / Beeks Bronze
30+ lots Hyper Trader’s VPS / Beeks Silver
100+ lots Beeks Gold
150+ lots Ultra Traders VPS

Beeks VPS plans


Finally looking at Axitrader, if you trade 20 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.

The Verdict

Here is a summary table comparing the various VPS sponsorship offers available. We find that Global Prime has the best VPS bundling offer out there, at just 40 lots traded per month, one is able to be sponsored a top of the range Beeks Gold VPS. 

IC Markets comes in at a close second as you can get a good VPS to run your EAs at 15 lots per month. We recommend you get the CNS Elite VPS for 15 lots per month as it has 2 virtual cores. Beeks bronze only has one.

You are also able to get a further $1.50 commission discount per lot traded on your Global Prime, Axitrader or IC Markets account.
