17. If I have many servers with you and 1 of my server gets a large DDOS that negatively affects the network, will only 1 of my server that gets DDOS gets terminated or will all of my servers be terminated?

First of all, if the DDOS attack does not affect other customers, then your server will not be terminated. We only terminate server if the DDOS attack affect other customers in our data center. Having said that if you are a reseller, then we will only terminate the server that is causing issue to our datacenter. But if this keeps on happening with most of your clients then we will discontinue your reseller status and ask you to move to other hosting provider. If you are an end user, then we may terminate all of your servers. Our goal is to provide screaming fast and stable network. Anyone who causes problem to our network/datacenter will not be tolerated.

18. If I have a hardware issue with my server, what will you do?

We will replace the problematic hardware. However, if your server is still not accessible, then we will setup a new server and mount the original hard drive as a secondary or connect it via USB until you move all the data to the new server, at which time we will take off the old hard drive. There is no support fee to replace faulty hardware.
