Refunds

We cannot guarantee 24x7 response time, so please be patient when you submit a ticket - submitting multiple tickets in quick succession (spam) will only have your problem de-prioritized.

Provisioning

Services are provisioned automatically after payment is received.

Support

We offer a (5) days money-back guarantee on all of our hosting services. You can find more information about refunds on our Refund Policy page.

Unmanaged Services

Our unmanaged services are designed for customers with knowledge of the Linux Command line as well as basic networking terminology and understanding. NodeServ is only responsible for the following:

However, if time permits NodeServ will make an effort to try to help every client the best we can, but as this service is "unmanaged" all extra support is on a "best-effort" basis.

You can get help from our staff as well as our community on IRC at #NodeServ on irc.freenode.net

Data Protection

We take multiple measures to help prevent hard disk failure as well as data loss, our unmanaged are backed up weekly to an offsite location in event of a natural disaster or large scale event. Our servers are configured with enterprise level hard disks as well as enterprise RAID cards configured in RAID-10. However data loss is always possible and it is up to the client to retain up to date backups in multiple locations - we will not be responsible to any data loss. If you need help setting up a secure backup system, our community will be happy to assist you on our IRC channel.
