Does anyone know where I can basically get a Windows box, so that I can host my NinjaTrader there?

That way I never have to worry about my power going out, or internet being down. And maybe there's one close to the exchanges?

I did something l like this for a guy I made an indicator for a while back, but I think he had a sweetheart deal worked out with the hosting company. Like he knew a guy or something? Anyway, I want to be able to log in, like I can login to my computer now, but I'd be logging in to like Windows Server 2003 or something.

Anyone know of a fairly cheap, no more than $200/month place I can get this?

Also, @sam028 runs a VPS service for futures.io (formerly BMT) members, I think you can get his box for $50 a month or so and it is 1ms from Chicago servers, Xeon, etc etc etc...

I run a VPS on all my stuff and it works awesome! Saved me a ton of money! There are cheap ones out there for like $50, but honestly you get what you pay for. I pay $150 a month and I am happy to do so. It is a super fast VPS with no lag at all and I run everything off it. It is like my own computer but remotely.

Most of the other services I had that were $50-$125 range lagged by about 1-5 seconds and I couldn't stand it. If you don't mind the lag, then you can go cheaper I guess...just a personal preference. Also check out the performance of the VPS, that will make a difference.

If you want the name of the place I use you can send me a pm and I will email you his contact info.

Hope that helps

$150 for a VPS is very expensive. You should be able to get a dedicated quad core with 4gb or 8gb of memory for that price.

What are the specs of your VPS? Where is it located (ping from Chicago)?

Quad core 4gb and it sits with the TradeStation servers in New York. Ping is actually 0ms to them. Worth it to me. I tried 3 other places all for $50-$100 and they had terrible lag. The ping rate was all good and under 5ms for them to a server in chicago, but I couldn't handle the lag.

Also when doing it, need to have a server obviously that routes the orders the fastest to your broker who sends that order out. So that was important for me to find out where TradeStation has their servers at too since I use them for a couple accounts.

Probably better prices out there, but I am pleased and wouldn't leave. Not worth $50 a month for me to switch when I have a good piece of mind now haha
