Migration description and the checkbox of the virtual hosting usage rules

You should also read the article "How to Prepare a Trading Account for Migration to Virtual Hosting" at this stage. If you have read the article and you are satisfied with how the service works, check the box and continue the process.

At the next stage, you need to select the most suitable server.

Selecting a server

It is recommended that you select the server with the minimum ping (network latency). The hosting company name and rental price in USD per month are specified for each server. Select the server and click Next.

After that, you need to select the service plan.

Selecting the service plan

Service plan conditions are defined by hosting companies. A free test period may be provided to try out the service.

You can change the selected service plan after the rental period expires.

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 service 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 rent process is finished and the appropriate payment is deducted from your account.

If the rent is canceled by a user, no refund is made.

Completion of the server registration

You can move the terminal environment to the virtual server immediately. Select the necessary migration type and click "Migrate now". If the terminal is not prepared yet, click Finish to perform migration later.

Paying for Virtual Hosting straight from the Payment Systems

If you do not have enough money on your MQL5.community account to pay for the hosting, you do not need to go to the website and fund it. You can pay for the hosting straight from one of the payment systems. Just click "Next" after choosing the rent plan. Then choose a suitable payment system.

Paying for virtual hosting straight from the payment systems

To maintain a clear and unified history of rented virtual hosting platforms, the required amount will be transferred to your MQL5.community account first, from which a payment for the service will be made. You can easily access and review all your payments from your MQL5.community Profile.

After paying you will pass to the last step of renting where you can perform the migration right away.
