TradingFXVPS standard plan ($25) review

Through the month of December & January, I’ve been given the opportunity to review TradingFXVPS for 1 month – $25 standard plan in New York. Here’s the verdict:

Verdict

Conclusions are written first for your convenience. TradingFXVPS $25 standard plan is a value for money product for traders looking to trade 1-2 MT4 terminals. (Signal copiers, 1-2 EA traders) If you can overlook the slow navigational interface (due to it being a 1 core machine) when accessing the virtual desktop and the lack of 2FA, MT4 performance on this VPS is as good as CNS (based on execution speed & tick volume counters)

TradingFXVPS

Cores – will 1 core make the cut?

Having been a user of Beeks Gold (4 core) & CNS Standard (4 core) and Value (2 core) plans before, I had the impression that the lowest one could go is 2 cores to run MT4 smoothly and have a decent experience navigating the virtual desktop, setting up your MT4 terminals, etc. I was curious how TradingFXVPS would perform given that it is a 1 core 2GB machine ($25 – standard plan)

Turns out in terms of MT4 performance (execution speed & tick volume), TradingFXVPS is on par with my current CNS VPS. Surprising…

Tick Volume – 1 core vs 4 cores performance

TradingFXVPS NY Tick volume

TradingFXVPS NY Tick volume

CNS NY Tick volume

CNS NY Tick volume

TradingFXVPS had 6.6% more ticks than my CNS VPS (standard plan, 4 cores, 2GB). Maybe this could be due to my CNS running 4 terminals, but then again if my EAs are doing OK on this level of tick volume performance on my CNS VPS, your EAs should do fine on 1-2 terminals in TradingFXVPS

Execution speed – 1 core vs 4 cores performance

Trading FXVPS exec speed

Trading FXVPS exec speed

CNY NY exec speed

CNY NY exec speed FxOpen AUS (NY server)

CNS NY exec speed Global prime NY cross connected

CNS NY exec speed Global prime NY On Net

1 core vs 4 cores doesn’t make too much of a difference here – When comparing TradingFXVPS & CNS purely in terms of 1 core vs 4 cores, the FxOpen AU MT4 performed similarly to the TradingFXVPS Global Prime MT4 (1st & 2nd image). Both are FxOpen & Global Prime have their servers located in NY and are both not On Net (directly connected via local area network LAN)

But being on the same network does – However, when we compare TradingFXVPS Global Prime & CNS’s Global Prime (which is On Net), there is a big difference in terms of execution speed. This is naturally so as information need not be sent over the internet, but directly via local area network. 

Navigating virtual desktop interface – 1 core vs 4 cores performance

Another area where 1 core vs 4 cores shows a difference. It took 5 seconds for google chrome to launch on TradingFXVPS, vs 1 second on CNS. I used google chrome to download my MT4 terminals, speed test EAs and tick volume testers.

Security – 2FA & port randomization

CNS has 2 factor authentication while TradingFXVPS does not. Maybe this will change in the future. Both have port randomization. (Port randomization is the last few digits after the colon symbol in your IP address, i.e 232.33.55.98:xxxx). This significantly reduces the chance of a VPS being hacked by brute force.

Broker sponsored VPS

It does seem like TradingFXVPS has a better deal with the broker sponsored VPS. Taking IC Markets as an example, they will sponsor a $35 CNS value VPS with 2 cores & 1GB of ram with a minimum volume of 100 lots per month. 

TradingFXVPS only requires 15 lots per month & a $1500 min deposit for a sponsor of their standard VPS ($25) 1 core, 2GB ram.

There you have it. TradingFXVPS at the $25 price point is a value for money product for traders looking to have a VPS for 1-2 MT4 terminals. Traders can also take advantage of the low requirements to have their brokers (currently IC Markets & Tickmill) to sponsor their VPS. For traders needing performance from their VPS, they would be better off with CNS’s 2 or 4 core machine, but they had better be prepared to pay the difference!

    This is the worst ‘provider’ a trader can find. I was a customer for 6 weeks with UK vps. The network was constantly down for hours many many times. This guy changed the IP address of my vps at least 3 times in the middle of the working week without any notifications in advance. Migration of servers 2-3 times. Actually he lies because he has NO own servers. Be very careful with this guy. He is from Asia (phone +65-96255358) and what he is doing is to rent dedicated servers from Zare.com and has no own IP addresses, networks, nothing own. Be careful because you actually put your private data and mt4 account on physical servers not owned from this guy and someday zare.com can suspend the servers for some reason and you will lost your private data. This is NOT a real hosting company.
    One more lie – he changed my IP address from UK to Netherlands trying to lie me and think that I will not check this when I paid for UK!!!

    This is very fake ‘provider’ without own servers without own IP network and non-stop down of internet…

    I can put here lot of his emails to customers for all of this because I’m sure he will try to lie again.

    February: As we have continued having an issue with the current node – 195.140.215xxx, we will be looking to migrate all data out to another node for stability and reliability.

    February again just 3 days later: The client who own IP address: 185.125.204.xxx will be facing with a network downtime due to issue with the gateway.

    February again: Network Reboot Do note that there was a reboot on all VPS 185.125.204.xxx & 185.121.139.xx

    February again and again: we decided to shift our client on another network subnet to prevent such unstable network.

    March: Dear Clients,
    These are the affected VPS : 185.144.100.xx, 195.140.214.xx & 185.121.139.xx.
    We had no choice but do reboot the server due to network arising again.

    March 2 days later again migration server new ip address and so on.

    March 23 today Friday afternoon on Forex market rush hour !!!!!!!! again network down and again asking to change IP address
    ‘ Yes we are terribly sorry for the downtime. As mentioned on our email there is unstable network.’

    Unstable networks all the time, server reboots without notifications on working days, change of IP address few times for 6 weeks, move servers to Netherlands and lie that are in UK when paid for UK and so on.

    Stay away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    To Marcel,

    Our company TradingFXVPS decided to terminate your VPS due to illegal usage on our VPS.

    Due to your selfish and unethical act, it caused numerous downtime to our VPSes which affected many users.

    Thus we decided to terminate your VPS immediately and resolve the issue without prior notice. Due to the fact we decided not to refund any payment, your review was fake and unreliable.

    TradingFXVPS are only for Forex Traders, not for people who abuse it for other use.

    Thank you
