Hello everybody,

I plan to use MQL virtual hosting for my EA, but it's very likely I will have to use several accounts.
As we know, if we use standard VPS, each installation of one EA means additional licence. So, if I have 10 licence with one EA, I would loose 5 of them if I install same EA on 5 different VPS. 
However, what happens in case of MQL virtual hosting? Would I loose one licence per one of EA installation (on additional MQL hosting service)? Because, if I use a few accounts, I have to rent separate MQL hosting service for each of them. 

Thank you very much in advanced.

MQL5 VPS for MT4 or MT5 is per broker's account irrespective off how many EAs are you trading.

I collected some information (see below) related to MQL5 VPS.

You can run multiple EAs on one virtual hosting server right now. Without additional pay.

Why do You want pay more money? There are no plans to multiply payments for virtual hosting

How to Start with Metatrader 5

Why Virtual Hosting On The MetaTrader 4 And MetaTrader 5 Is Better Than Usual VPS

Renting a virtual server right from the MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 terminals is the optimal way to ensure uninterrupted work of your trading robots and Signal subscriptions. Essentially, it is an analogue of a VPS though it is better and more suitable for addressing needs and challenges that a trader comes across. The server can be rented straight from your MetaTrader. It takes only a couple mouse clicks for Experts Advisors, indicators, scripts together with Signal subscriptions and settings to be transferred to the virtual server. The Virtual Hosting Cloud network was developed specially for MetaTrader and has all the advantages of a native solution.

Certainly, there are alternatives to virtual hosting but a closer look reveals that they do not compete. The first thing that comes to mind is using a home computer as a budget option. It could work, however a stable internet connection and uninterrupted power supply are not guaranteed. A VPS can be rented from a suitable provider found on the internet. That could be feasible but it implies a manual search for a server having minimum latency with the required Forex-broker's. Such a puzzle does not suit everyone.

Hello Nashy, below are the steps for implementing MQL5 integrated VPS:

1. Go to your account details in the Navigator window of your MT4 platform, right click in your account number or name and select the option Register a Virtual Server.

2. In the Virtual Hosting Wizard window that opens, the VPS with the lower Ping, ms value is presented automatically.

 


 

3. Select your payment plan for 1, 3, 6 or 12 months and click Next.

4. Tick the: I agree to the virtual hosting service rules and the auto renewal option below (if you want) and click Next. 




5. Complete your payment for the VPS Service

6. In the next window, tick the Migrate signal: account and settings option, click End and you are done.

Thank you very much Sergey.

I have already used MQL VPS and know how it works, but don't know every detail. 
However, regarding your first and this sentence: 
"You can run multiple EAs on one virtual hosting server right now. Without additional pay."

- I don't need multiple EAs, but I need multiple trading accounts. That's a big difference, and that's the only thing I wish to know (I know how to setup MQL VPS etc... but I am not sure if MQL would use one licence per one account, because I will have to use one hosting service per one account - as far as I know. 

Kindest regards

As far as I know - it is one VPS per account: per Metatrader (any Metatrader with one broker's account, but we/you can change the account to the other one with same VPS).

That's correct in case of standard VPS. 
But, I am asking about MQL VPS service, and that's different thing (works different, so maybe there is difference regarding EA licencing too as both services - Marketplace and VPS - are related to one MQL account). 

However, maybe you are right, and it's the same thing in both cases.
