My broker suggests through the MT4 platform's Journal tab to rent theirs VPS.
I was wondering if they can get/obtain mine EA's source code.
Please share your opinions.

Hope, I'm wrong.

If your source code is on their server then, yes.

If only your ex4 file is on their server then, no, but they can use your EA if it isn't protected.

If your vps is encrypted, not without a lot of time/effort/work to get to it.

How would one encrypt his/her VPS?
Thank you.

Depends on the type of vps used.

It does not apply to all vps servers.

Upon installation of the operating system the virtual drive can be encrypted.

Not really just do a bit of research and compare the specifications.
