If you run automatic strategies with no manual input then a VPS is the best solution for you.

Its really very simple. You will need to connect using a Remote Desktop Client (see below), which is installed on on the device you wish to connect from ( Mac, PC, iPad, iPhone, Android tablet, etc…). You can then log on to your VPS from anywhere (with an Internet connection) and use your VPS just like your home PC.
We usually recommend Microsoft Remote Desktop. It is easy to use and is available to download on most platforms (MacOSX, iPhone/iPad, Android devices and Microsoft Phones). Microsoft provides this for free and we think the official Microsoft RDP client is one the best options to use.
