If you are talking about MQL5 VPS for MT4/MT5 so the best server is the server with less ping.

It is some information which may be requited (in case of MQL5 VPS for example):

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.

MQL5 VPS

Activations (Market with MQL5 VPS):

How to Prepare a Trading Account for Migration to Virtual Hosting 

Products purchased on the Market and launched on the chart are also moved during migration. They remain completely functional, and the number of available activations is not decreased. Automatic licensing of purchased products without spending available activations is provided only for the virtual terminal.

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.

There is no straight forward answer. It depends on how resource intensive, whatever it is your are running, is. With your description no sensible answer can be given.

I disagree with Sergey MQL VPS is the best. It is certainly not. It all depends on the specific situation and needs.

I am not sure that it is directly related to your question ... but just in case ... about one of the servers which is using MQ (the post from rus part of the forum):

Support for Windows XP/Windows 2003/Windows Vista to be discontinued after 01 October 2017

We work like this: massively (we have a large farm) we use servers with 512/768 Gb RAM, double sockets of 40-56 cores, the most heaped up SSD disks.


And then we are persuaded to support Windows XP.
