Registering a virtual server

The Virtual Hosting wizard will automatically select the server that is closest to your broker. In the wizard window, you will see how ping (network latency) will decree compared to your current connection. Lower network latency between your platform and the broker's server provides better condition for the execution of trading operations, such as reduced slippage and probability of getting re-quotes.

Select the appropriate plan and click "Next". Service plan conditions are defined by hosting companies.

The Virtual Hosting wizard automatically selects the server that is closest to your broker.

  • A free test period may be provided to try out the service.
  • You can change the selected service plan after the rental period expires.

If your MQL5 account is not specified in the trading platform settings, the Virtual Hosting wizard will prompt you to add one. In order to rent a virtual platform, you need to have a valid MQL5.community account. You can register account right away if you do not have any.

Enter your MQL5 account or register

Click "Next" and check all the data: the trading account, for which you are going to rent a virtual hosting, as well as the cost of subscription.

Checking data and hosting rental confirmation

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 funds on your account are not enough to pay for the service, you will be asked to pay for a virtual hosting subscription using any of the available payment systems.

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.
