Notice regarding security and unmanaged services
If you have an unmanaged VPS service with us you are responsible for the security of your server. If we receive complaints about spam, malware, or other issues that are damaging to us or our upstream service provider we will investigate the report independently and if found to be valid we will take one of two steps:
- If the issue is serious and negatively impacting other customers or our network (for example if your VPS is clearly sending spam on an ongoing basis) then your service will be shut down and you will be notified by email. Upon acknowledgement of the notification your service will be restarted so you can fix whatever issue has caused the security breach or misconfiguration issue that has led to the problem.
- If the issue is not causing significant and direct problems you will be notified and asked to look into the issues as soon as possible. If we do not receive acknowledgement from you within 48 hours your service may be temporarily suspended until such time as you respond and verify that you will look into the reported problem.
To ensure you receive important notifications we request that you use an account email address independent of your service hosted with us.
