In many countries, Debit Carrds are available to people who are 13yrs old, whilst Credit Cards are available at 18yrs old. We believe in the middle ground and require that you are at least 16yrs old to order services from us. If you are younger that 16yrs old, please ask your parents/guardian to order for you.

We have provided a number of methods for you to contact us, namely Sales, Billing and Support enquiry forms. Each of these generate a ticket number for us to refer to your enquiry / issue. In the event that your contact email address belongs to a domain on your service, you must provide us with a third-party / secondary email address that we can contact you on.
We never provide telephone contact / support, under any circumstances.
When we are online and available, our livechat system can be used for Sales, Billing and Support enquiries. However, we may require/request you to submit your issue via the appropriate enquiry forms so that a ticket can be assigned.

Be aware of the importance of backups. Most data centers protect their data stores by using RAID configured disk arrays, which is only one level of data security of many. Some take backups of their data stores, daily, weekly or monthly, and that varies between data centers.
We provide an additional last-line-of-defence backup service, if part of your hosting plan or selected as an add-on, which can be used in the event of a irrecoverable system/data disaster at data center level. See our Backups page for more information.
Upgrading/downgrading a plan in the Shared Hosting Platform can be requested any time and can be scheduled for change at end of the current billing period, or can be immediate (subject to server resources being available).
Upgrading a plan in the Cloud VM platform is subject to the parent server having enough resources to cater for the changes (usually not a problem, and when it is, we find a suitable work around). Downgrading a plan in the Cloud VM platform is not possible due to filesystem restrictions unless your VM has a Storage Volume and it's the volume that you want to resize. In that case, we can explain the process and costs involved. KVM-based VMs cannot be downgraded safely because shrinking the hard disk is not possible without risking data loss, and that's something we can't risk under any circumstance. Before you upgrade from one VM Plan to another, we will always discuss Storage Volume options with you, to help you better prepare for downsizing.
If your change is going to be immediate, your current billing term for that service will be ended (without refund for any unused days) and a new billing period will begin. For those who made annual payments, an adjustment for additional payment can be made based on whole-months for the affected months, but no refunds or credits will be provided if downgrading.
We allow only one upgrade or downgrade per/month per/hosting account.
Plans can be cancelled any time though we do not provide refunds for any unused pre-paid hosting. Example; If you have paid for one year in advance, but cancel 6 months into the hosting period, you will not be refunded for the remaining days in your pre-paid period.
All hosting plans, whether on Shared or VM platforms, have a monthly transfer limit. An overage charge of $0.05 per/GB will apply if the limits are exceeded. Payments for such charges must be received within 3 days of the payment being requested or the service will be suspended, pending termination. If network overage occurs two months in a row, we will enforce a Plan upgrade by helping you choose a suitable plan for your actual needs.
If you have any questions about the above, please let us know.
