  1. Gotta really think twice about using this FXVM folks. Second month just started and the connection was lost for more than 20 minutes! Scary to think about it.

    • Thanks for letting me know John. What are they saying about this downtime?

      • Their email to me (or maybe other customers):

        “Dear Customer,
        We need to inform you that your VPS was rebooted on July 9th around 02.36 PM UTC due to a node issue we are still investigating.

        All VPS are back online.

        Please ensure you login to your VPS and check that any of the services that you require are running as expected.

        Any clients who do not have MT4 autostart configured please contact our support if you need help configuring it as we do recommend it.

        If you need any assistance, please let us know.

        FXVM.net team
        support@fxvm.net
