Headquartered in Hong Kong, ForexVPS.net is a child company of Think Huge Limited, launched in 2012. It provides a selection of fast VPS and dedicated servers for online Forex traders. The company has servers in multiple financial data centers in North America, Western Europe, Australia, and Asia.
The ForexVPS.net website is basic (not so appealing) and entirely in English. All prices are in U.S. dollars.
Features and Ease of Use
ForexVPS.net’s VPS offerings work with all Windows applications, software platforms, and trading types. This is good news for traders who use multiple platforms or software with plenty of computing resources.
This host provides a bunch of worthy features with its four VPS plans (Basic, Basic+, High Freq, and Standard):
- SSD storage
- 100% uptime guarantee
- Support for Windows 2012-2019 (except the Basic package)
- Dedicated IP address
- Automatic backups
- Support for all platforms and brokers
- 5-minute setup
- Custom control panel
ForexVPS.net knows that time is money in the Forex trading business, so it provides ready-to-go systems to minimize time-wasting processes. You simply log into your MT4 account or download and install your preferred software. Browsers such as Chrome and Firefox, as well as other applications, come pre-installed.
Further, you don’t have to wait for hours or days to set up your VPS server. With ForexVPS.net, it only takes 5 minutes to receive your VPS server already set up for you – although I was advised it may take up to 30 minutes. Still, not bad at all. Plus, this vendor provides ultra-fast low latency of 1 millisecond.
Now, let’s see the resources you get with ForexVPS.net’s plans. You get from 60 GB to 90 GB of SSD storage, 1 to 2 CPU cores, and 2 GB to 4 GB of RAM. Is this the best I’ve seen? No, but it should be enough for small to medium-sized businesses. If you want to scale up, you can opt for one of its dedicated server plans.
While many Forex VPS vendors offer automatic daily backups, ForexVPS.net only has automatic monthly backups. That’s not enough to safeguard your data or help you sleep soundly.

Pricing and Support
ForexVPS.net offers plans that are not the most inexpensive in the market, but they come at a moderate price and include promotional discounts. You have the option to subscribe on a monthly, quarterly, or semi-annual basis. All VPS plans requiring payment include a 7-day money-back guarantee.
This host also offers free Forex VPS, but it works differently. To get free Forex VPS, you’ll need to first choose a broker from one of its partners and deposit at least the minimum amount required by your selected account type. Register and log in with your details, then start trading. Once you hit the necessary monthly volume, your Forex VPS will be free.
ForexVPS.net has a good knowledgebase of articles and video tutorials covering different topics. If you prefer human support, you can reach out through live chat and ticket support (both are available 24 hrs on business days). I went for the live chat support since I wanted to know more about its control panel. The representative was very friendly and helpful – although I would’ve preferred they provided more detailed info about the custom control panel.
