Hello dear reader. Today I thought I’d take a look at AccuWebHosting’s Forex VPS offering. Forex VPS hosting is a niche market and there are a few players out there, some more established than others. AccuWebHosting has been in the web hosting industry for 19 years so far. I’m not 100% sure for how long they’ve been offering VPS plans targeted for Forex traders, but their expansive web hosting experience of 19 years no doubt means that they know what they’re doing when it comes to setting up a server infrastructure. Forex traders have specific demands, especially when it comes to latency, and you should not be surprised to learn that AccuWebHosting’s Forex VPS offering takes those demands into consideration.
Latency is an important factor when selecting the VPS for Forex Trading. AccuWebHosting offers Forex servers in 16+ locations. You can choose the nearest location to your Forex broker and get the benefits of low latency communications between your VPS and your chosen Forex broker.
Their plans start as low as $9.99 a month for 1 GB of RAM and 2 vCPU cores, 35 GB of storage, and 250 GB of bandwidth transfer. For most of you this would be more than enough and you can run around 1 to 4 trading terminals at once with this package. If you’re running some crazy resource hungry EA (expert advisor) or specialized trading system then you can always go for the higher end packages. The top of the line package gives you 8 GB of ram and 4 vCPU cores, 50 GB of storage and 1 TB of bandwidth transfer.
I should mention that AccuWebHosting is actually cheaper than another forex vps provider that I recommend; it’s actually cheaper on an equal footing than all of them!
All their VPS run on top of a HyperV virtualization infrastructure which guarantees you the best compatibility when running a Windows desktop. There is no funky Windows emulation happening on a Linux server. You have a 100% Microsoft solution from top to bottom.
Now for the “perks” (as AccuWebHosting) call them. I call them the main selling poits:
Multiple Trading Locations
Fully Managed by Experts
Protected with Server Firewall
All their Forex VPS plans in Denver, New York (USA) & London (UK) include complimentary backup. The trading VPS is backed up weekly. We can restore your entire VPS from the available backup

Choice of Operating System
With any Forex VPS hosting plan, you will have an option to select Windows Server 2019 / 2016 or 2012 Standard OS. The Windows OS license will be pre-activated on your VPS, there is no additional cost for the OS license
1 Gbps Port Speed
Easily Scalable Forex VPS
AccuWeb Hosting can upgrade your Forex Trading VPS to any higher VPS plan in the series. While upgrading your VPS, all your data and IP address will remain intact. In addition, there is almost “zero” downtime during this process
Ultra Low Latency Forex VPS
Latency is an important factor when selecting the VPS for Forex Trading. AccuWeb Hosting offers Forex servers in 16+ locations. You can choose the nearest location to your Forex broker and get the benefits of low latency.
What I recommend before you event think of signing up is first, go to the AccuWebHosting Forex VPS website, and then find the “Test Latency” button which is roughly somewhere in the middle of the page. Find our preferred broker. The latency tool will let you know the ping (latency) rate from their datacenters to that chosen broker’s servers. ALWAYS choose a data center that has the lowest latency to your chosen broker.
I hope you found this post both useful and informative. I would also appreciate if you share your opinion and experience with AccuWebHosting if you are already one of their customer. Even if you plan to become their customer if you can spare the time leave us a comment on this post letting me know how your experience is going thus far. It helps us all if we can gain useful feedback on the service providers we have to choose from.
and Happy Trading!
