Why Use a VPS with Alchemy Markets?

The Alchemy Markets’ server is hosted at Equinix data centres in London (LD4) and New York (NY4). We provide two VPS solutions - Gold and Platinum. With both solutions, our traders can benefit from consistent uptime for their Expert Advisor (EA), automated, or FIX API strategy.

What Is a Virtual Private Server (VPS)?

A VPS (Virtual Private Server) is a form of web trading that connects clients remotely to a physical server, allowing them access to hardware far more than what is available, or cost-effective, on a personal computer. 

A VPS allows traders to access servers at Equinix data centres in New York or London. This allows clients to run automated strategies 24/7, even if their home machine is turned off.  Since client servers are hosted next to the markets server, execution speeds are unparalleled and come with a range of benefits for traders using automated and especially high-speed strategies. DDoS mitigation, fibre cross connects, and a dedicated IP address come as standard. Depending on the exact package chosen, clients can run between 1 and 5 instances of MetaTrader by VPS.
