Frequently Asked Questions

Last Updated 15 January 2024

What is your uptime policy?

We guarantee our network, power and services will be available, at minimum, for 99.9% of a given month.

Some exceptions to this policy are:

  • Scheduled maintenance windows, usually announced 24-hours in advance
  • Upgrades ordered for your service
  • Suspension of service
  • Errors caused by the account holder

If we fail to meet this guarantee, any account owner in good standing is welcome to request an account credit within one week of the outage.

What am I allowed to host?

Anything not restricted in our Acceptable Usage Policy is permitted. If you have a question, please submit a Support Ticket.

What are your business hours?

Our business hours are 1000h-1800h EST (UTC-5), Monday-Friday and 1000h-1600h Saturday. Closed Sunday and Statutory Holidays.

Can I upgrade my service?

All products (except for our networking services) may be upgraded via the client portal. Upgrades are not automated to ensure accuracy, and have the same processing time as mentioned in our Terms of Service.

Can I downgrade my service?

Currently, our KVM VPS plans are unable to be downgraded directly due to limitations imposed by operating system filesystems. In order to downgrade your KVM VPS, you will have to purchase a new plan offered on our website, manually transfer your data from the old VPS to your new VPS, and then cancel your old VPS via the client portal for an account credit (as permitted by our Terms of Service).

Can I change my Operating System?

All KVM VPS services may be reinstalled ay any time through the VPS Control Panel, accessible via the service listing within the client portal.

How does billing work?

All services are pro-rated to the first of the month. Any order placed after the 20th will be charged the remainder of the current month as well as the following month. Invoices for services are issued 10 days in advance of the due date.

Are your services managed?

All services are completely unmanaged. With that being said, we will occasionally assist with minor problems or point you in the right direction if we have free time.

Do you offer backups?

All KVM VPS services receive FREE backups, which can be configured from within the VPS control panel.

Can I change the reverse DNS record associated with my service's IP address?

Clients can update rDNS for their IP addresses from within the VPS control panel.

Why was my account deleted?

We do expect clients to read and follow our Terms of Service and Acceptable Usage Policies when signing up and purchasing services with us. Due to the limited availability of stock and as per the aforementioned policies, we will refund and remove accounts that are in violation of them.

If your account was deleted, and you feel you did not fit any of the above criteria, please submit a Support Ticket. Please be sure to include information relevant to the prior account (Name, Address, Email, etc) as reference.
