A detailed how-to description that will help you to rent a virtual hosting directly from a trading platform. It is easy: choose the nearest server and payment plan to let your robots and signals run 24 hours a day.

Registering a virtual server

The Virtual Hosting Wizard window appears. It shows how the virtual hosting network works. At the next stage, you are informed on how to prepare the platform for migration and how the process itself is performed. More details are available in the article How to prepare a trading account for migration to virtual hosting.

Virtual hosting structure and preparation for migration

At the next stage, select the most suitable server.

Select a server

It is recommended that you select a server with the minimum ping (network latency). The hosting company name and rental price in USD per month are specified for each server. Select the server and click Next.

After that, you need to select the payment plan.

Selecting the payment plan

Payment plan conditions are defined by hosting companies. A free test period may be provided to try out the service.

You can change the selected payment plan after as soon as the rental period expires.

To continue, you should agree with the Virtual Hosting service rules. Read them carefully.

If you want the rental period to be renewed after its expiration with the same payment plan, enable the option "Automatically renew subscription with sufficient funds and terminal activity". The renewal can be performed only if there are enough funds on your MQL5.community account to pay for the rent and the rented server is running.

After clicking Next, the server renting process is finished and the appropriate payment is deducted from your account.

If the rent is canceled by a user, no refund is made.

Completion of the server registration

You can transfer the platform environment to the virtual server immediately. Select the necessary migration type and click "Migrate now". If the platform is not prepared yet, click Finish to perform migration later.

Paying for Hosting Directly from Payment Systems

If you do not have enough money on your MQL5.community account to pay for hosting, you do not necessarily need to go to the site and add money to your account. A payment for hosting can be transferred directly through one of the payment systems. Just click "Next" after selecting a payment plan. Select the appropriate system and transfer the payment.

Paying for hosting directly through a payment system

To maintain a clear and unified history of rented virtual servers, the required amount is first transferred to your MQL5.community account, from which an appropriate payment is made.

After payment you are redirected to the final stage, where you can immediately transfer your platform.
