  3. IRC clients are also not allowed?

      IRC clients are allowed as long as you don’t attract any issues.

    I know it said no TOR exit nodes. But what about TOR hidden services? They are not exit nodes and are not vulnerable to any known TOR attacks. It’s just like a web server that allows access via a hidden service.

      TOR relays are allowed. The policy of IRC clients applies to TOR relays. As long as your server doesn’t cause any issues, we don’t have a problem with it.

        Ok, I submitted a support ticket with Sales department. It did not allow me to order, flagging my order as fraud even though I didn’t even get to the checkout phase. I have no idea why I might have gotten flagged.

          Oh that’s strange, I don’t know why that email address is bouncing. Ok, I made a new order with my alternate email address and got the same fraud issue. I submitted a support ticket.

    All the issues were sorted out. I paid and got up and running on a VPS in minutes (literally). This is the first time that I felt like instead of waiting on support, support was constantly waiting on me (I was busy at work during the time I was signing up, so I wasn’t giving it my 100% attention).

    Thankyou John for your support, and if there’s any more newsworthy reports, I’ll comment them here. But so far, everything seems to be running great.

        Do you offer Debian Wheezy, I see some providers currently offer it even though its still RC.

        What do you call “issues”? DMCA?
        Can the vps be used as a vpn/proxy for torrent downloading?
