For Forex hosting, consider the dollar value you're trading when figuring out your hosting. I've seen people who claim to do Forex as their primary source of income try to budget $5/month as a server expense. I recommend that you consider how highly available the server is - having a backup server would make up any lost cost the moment the primary server goes down.

It's worth having a backup server or second option if you're trading any significant dollar value or if you rely on it for your livelihood.

I don't understand it. What is so special about Forex VPS that other servers don't have? It is just physical proximity to try and reduce trade latency?

I have experience in hosting and setting up Forex platforms on a VPS.
It's just about good connectivity, low latency and enough ram to handle the high amount of simultaneous users.

ah, ok... so this wouldn't be the sort of thing that you'd set up for just one trader? or is there a whole bunch of automated stuff that drives load (predictive analysis kind of things that drive trade timing?)

What location/datacenter is Forex hosting you at? Are there any other host in the same or nearby locations for you to compare them to? Lastly are the network carriers being used optimal for getting you the low latency you require?

Those are the questions I'd be asking myself if I were wanting to make sure I was getting the best service or value.

Can we suggest you prepare your TOS very carefully, to limit the exposure to compensation that you have to the cost of the VPS.

You don't want to have to pay out thousands because of a missed trade. Unlikely, but you should cover yourself.

That's exactly right. Forex VPS services advertise minimal latency to the key datacenters where the forex brokers' servers are located, so in theory, trades will be executed faster (especially automated/algo trades).

Now, whether that really benefits your forex trading is another question.
