Questions regarding our service

Do you offer a money-back guarantee?

Yes, all our hosting packages excluding Dedicated Servers include a 30 day money back guarantee. Only new customers are eligible for our 30 day money back guarantee. If the TOS/AUP agreed upon when ordering is violated this also makes you ineligible for the 30 day money back guarantee. We also reserve the right to not accept a refund request on a case by case basis if we feel our services were abused and/or taken advantage of.

Yes, we offer a 99.9% network uptime guarantee back by our SLA, though in the real world we average over 99.99% day in and day out over the past decade.

How long does it take for my account to be activated?

VPSs are provisioned immediately upon successful payment and automated fraud check completion.* The system may take up to 5 minutes to deploy your VPS and send the welcome email. Dedicated servers are generally delivered in 12-24 hours.
