  8. @Sonic sorry for the typo, I meant to say “depends on the time given to us by DC to resolve the matter” otherwise we may temporarily suspend the VPS until i get hold of you for compliance, this is not to put the whole node I jeopardy.

    We allow legal adult.

    I tried to order a Xen VPS – my order got marked as fraud. Website said I would be contacted. Nothing happened. I opened a ticket, and was promised a manual invoice. Few days later automatic e-mail that my ticket was closed. Polite question by e-mail about said invoice. No answer. Today last trial by online ticket, and was asked to order again.

    No hard feelings, just to much work to order from this place. (Non-Fraud) Greetings from Germany …

    • Interesting how Germany is getting marked as Fraud. Haven’t really seen that before.

      October 11, 2010 @ 10:01 pm | Reply
      • well there are a lot of reason why our fraud system thought it is fraud order, one is if one is using proxy, provided incorrect address or simply the IP/email address he is using has a history and was in the database of fraud systems provider. In this case we review it manually but not necessarily it is exactly fraud that’s why i told him to place another order so it can be processed manually.

  10. Sorry about that, we deal with fraud order seriously as chargebacks is hurting this business. I told you to just order again so i can easily spot it and process manully on the spot. Please give us another try and i’ll make it sure we will review it ASAP :)

    additional ip $2.50USD Monthly? really expensive :P

    • due to scarcity of IPv4 we always assume 1 IP per budget VPS would be enough.

    The score is quite great: 1058.4

    But I don’t see any improvement when using 2 cores over 1 core. A little bit weired???
