    an Antivirus?

    I just set up a VPS (4GB/4C) to use RankerX and GSA SER on and a couple other minor tools.

    Should I install an antivirus on it.

    If so which one do you recommend.

    Do you use anti virus on your SEO Tools VPS.

    PS: I have asked in the "White Hat > Hosting" forum, but no one answer, maybe it's a stupid question, but it's my first VPS and don't want to slow it down with an antivirus if it's not needed.

    Thanks redarrow,

    This is the answer I got from support:
    "It is your decision. If you have any secured official data. Please install one to protect the data."

    So since I don't any important personal data on it I won't install an Anti-Virus.
