FAQs

Have a question? A source of useful information about our products and services.
What information is needed to start a setup?
To start installing the server, you will need to evaluate the necessary operating conditions’ required system parameters.
Such as:
a) Determine the location of the primary and backup servers based on suitable conditions.
b) Considering the forecasts for the expected load on the trading server, determine the required structure of servers and their parameters.
c) Get an idea of the server’s trading conditions and determine all the necessary components corresponding to these ideas.
d) Provide the received parts in the form of a completed checklist to start the installation.Our staff is always ready to help with each of the above points.
System requirements for MetaTrader4 server
MetaTrader4 trading server does not require a high-end solution. The system requirements are the following: Processor: Intel Xeon E-3, E-5 with six or more cores with support for SSE2 instructionsHard drive: 2x480Gb SSD in RAID-1 for system and trading server, 2x1Tb HDD for backups. Use direct-attached storage, do not use shared SANs as it can have latency, and your server might “freeze” on the fast market. SSD drive should be datacenter-oriented (like http://ark.intel.com/products/series/86207/Data-Center-SSDs), not consumer-oriented (reading/writing speed of at least 30Mb/sec).RAM: no less than 6GB.The speed of data transmission over the network: no less than 512Kb/sec (depending on the load on servers)Files system: Required NTFSOperating System: Windows Server 2012 Standard or higherIt is desirable to assign a particular HDD for MetaTrader Server 4, having a big cluster size. For example, C: for an operating system, D: for the trading server, and E: for backups. Cluster big size allows decreasing fragmentation of the database files.The server shouldn’t have installed the following types of software:- Web servers (Internet Information Server, Apache, etc.)- Mail server, DNS server, SNMP, etc.- Databases (Oracle, MSSQL, etc.)- Various IDE, compilers, etc.- .NET and Java environment- Various controlling agents supplied by the server manufacturer- Antivirus software- Third-party firewalls
System requirements for MetaTrader5 server
The MetaTrader 5 platform components are recommended to be installed on dedicated servers rented from hosting companies.Recommended requirements:CPU: Intel Xeon E3, E5 series quad-core or higherRAM: No less than 16GBHDD: RAID-1 array with two 480GB SSDs for the trade server and the history server, RAID-1 array with 2 x 1 TB SATA for backup serversNetwork: Both download and upload speed no less than 100 MbpsOperating System: Windows Server 2019 Standard x64No third-party software for system time synchronization is allowed.
Can I add custom functionality?
If there is a need to add any non-standard / custom functionality to the MetaTrader platform, we can help assess and implement such a solution.Metatrader platforms can expand their functions with additional plugins, in the form and with those parameters that the client requires.
How much will a turnkey solution cost, together with the costs of licenses and server hosting?
The cost of a complete turnkey solution depends on many factors, such as the selected location and server configuration, the cost of server software at the time of installation, the number of servers deployed according to the approved layout, taking into account the assessment and forecasts of the expected load of the structure.Our staff is always ready to help with the assessment and optimization of the setup’s proposed structure.
Is it possible to transfer a ready-made setup to another system along with clients and deals (migration)?
Yes, it is technically feasible. Depending on the specific case of migration, it can take several hours (MetaTrader4-to-MetaTrader5, MetaTrader5-to-MetaTrader 4) or several days to prepare to implement such a migration.
What communication methods are available with technical support for the setup?
Customer technical support is provided through the ticket system, as well as by e-mail.
In what form do you need to submit requests to change the configuration of an already running server?
All configuration changes must be made using checklists. This is necessary for both the client and us to trace the history of changes according to these checklists and their sending dates.
