What is a Virtual Private Server (VPS)

A virtual private server (VPS) is an isolated slice of a cloud-based physical server. It allows customers to install their own operating system and applications, and offers them the same levels of access and control as a dedicated physical server.

So what's all the stuff you can do with a VPS? A VPS can be used for a variety of tasks, such as hosting websites or running mission-critical databases. Additionally, VPS are widely used for creating application development environments, running high-traffic websites, or hosting video streaming services or online radio stations.

EDIS Global provides its customers with reliable VPS solutions that offer built-in scalability and high availability. Our advanced VPS technology also ensures optimal performance in all types of workloads by offering complete resource isolation.

In certain countries, internet usage is heavily restricted...

and access to international websites and applications is blocked. Another country's IP address or a windows machine with a web browser on it, hosted in a country other than yours, may help you access news, data, and services you're looking for.

You might want to have an IP address from a particular country, region, or city to conduct special online research (e.g. ad-campaign monitoring, ...) or to gain access to geographically restricted services.

A common use-case is to listen to your favorite local home- radio station while you're abroad, to watch a live transmission of an important football match on an online TV station from another continent, or to access a platform with information that may only be available within a certain area or country.

You can also get your trading bot closer to your favorite crypto/stock exchange. Running your trading bot thousands of miles away may be a workable solution, but minimizing latency (running your bot technically next door to the stock exchange) would definitely put you in a more rewarding position compared to most other market participants.
