Delivery of Services
Whilst we aim to deliver all services instantly, this is not always possible. Particularly, when we have limited capacity to provision new VPS orders, or an account needs to be screened for fraud protection (generally the first order).
We reserves the right at our sole discretion to refuse or cancel any service for any reason.
We endeavor to set-up all new VPS orders within 1 office hour, subject to us having the capacity to provision the services, and the account not needing fraud screening.
Accounts are less likely to require fraud screening if: The full postal address can be validated as existing, external records show you are registered living at or using the address specified and we can reach you by phone and email successfully.
Additionally, to prevent new orders being held up you should make sure your payment email matches the one registered on your account, and the same shipping/delivery address is supplied by the merchant (I.e PayPal).
No Services Available
In the event that we do not have any VPS’s available for provisioning, you will be given the opportunity to wait for stock to become available, to revise your order size, or to cancel your whole order.
If you choose to change the size of your order, or wait for stock to become available, where applicable you will be provided account credit against future invoices, for each whole calendar day you are waiting.
In the unlikely event that we have no stock available after 5 calendar days, we reserve the right to cancel your order in full, and issue a refund to your original payment method. If we are unable to refund to your original payment method, we will instead provide you account credit to be redeemed towards future orders. You will be given the opportunity to provide payment details for a manual refund on request, however this must be through the original payment method.
