- Where are your servers located? Is DMCA ignored? Can I run TOR?
Our company and infrastructure (including IP addresses and resources) are based in Sofia, Bulgaria. TOR exit nodes are allowed. DMCA is not relevant in Bulgaria, however, Bulgarian copyright law is in effect. Any reports or complaints are reviewed, and we try to address any issue with the customer's best interest in mind by contacting them first to resolve the problem.
- Do you block any ports? Is 25 SMTP port allowed?
No, we do not block any ports. 25 port is allowed.
- How does your DDoS protection work?
When you purchase a DDoS protected IP address, we will provide you with IP address that routes to our DDoS network cloud infrastructure which can filter attacks up to 1Tbps. Attacks with more capacity than this will result in a null route. The protection analyzes the packets to your server IP address, and if the system suspects non-legit packets, it filters them, and the malicious traffic would not reach your server. Read more about our DDoS Protection.
- I have a DDoS protected IP but the attack was not blocked. What should I do?
Please open a ticket and provide us with more information about the incident. We can put your IP address in a more strict DDoS Protection mode, and we will do everything possible to protect you from the next attack.
- Do you offer Windows servers? What OS are supported?
Yes, we offer Windows servers. If you do not have a Windows Server license, you can purchase it from us just for 8 EUR per month excluding VAT.
OpenVZ VPS is limited to Linux OS.
Available Linux distributions for KVM VPS and VDS are Debian, Ubuntu, CentOS, Fedora, AlmaLinux, RockyLinux and openSUSE or you can deploy your custom ISO.
You can read more about deploying your custom ISO.
- What if there is an attack on my non-protected IP?
If there is a DDoS attack on your non-protected IP, this will result in a null route for this IP address. The null route will be automatically removed within 10 minutes. If the attack is still on-going, the null route will be continued until there is no on-going attack.
If you have purchased a DDoS protected IP, be sure that your non-protected IP is not exposed.
- Do you perform virtual server backups?
You can take a snapshot of your server (KVM VPS, VDS and OpenVZ VPS) anytime you want. Also, as an addon you can purchase, we do provide automated weekly server backups.
All of our servers are in RAID 10 configuration to guarantee maximum data protection.
However, we do automated daily backups of your shared hosting account. You can check here how to restore your account from them.
