Last updated June 30th, 2022
1. Refund policy
We accept refunds for all Game Servers, VPS Servers. We do not accept refunds for Dedicated Servers.
If you forget to cancel your subscription one day after your payment has been made on your second month or after, we will refund 100% of your payment.
If your server performance drops for a minimum of 4 hours, you're entitled to a 15% refund or credit. If your performance drops over a 1 day period, you'll be entitled to a 50% refund.
If we see any large performance heavy plugins or applications that may be causing your server to lag or to become slower than usual we won't refund you.
2. Unlimited Storage on Game Servers
We do not put any restrictions on the amount of storage space a server may use.
Unlimited storage applies to the world files of the game server you are hosting. MySQL storage is truely unlimited as is not measured. (Log files are limited to 10GB per server. Plugin files are limited to 50GB per server. Backups are limited to the amount of backups you have available to use.)
When any of these restrictions are hit, we will contact the server owner to determine the best solution to the utilization of storage used by plugins and/or logs files.
3. Unthrottled CPU Game Servers
CPU usage is unrestricted meaning you have access to all of the servers core amount. Any game server that utilizes more than 50% for a long period of time will be automatically throttled. (The server owner will be notified when the changes are made.)
You are required to utilize the servers resources responsibly and to make sure that the server doesn't affect the performance of any other servers on the node. Server resources are shared across all servers in the chosen location.
4. Unacceptable Use on Game Servers
Game servers may only be used for the purpose they were intended to be used. Any third party software not related to the chosen Game server will be removed automatically. We will not be responsible for any third party software that may interfere with the servers functionality.
Any unauthorized usage such as tampering with Pterodactyl Panel and/or Wings will result in the immediate suspension and removal of your services.
Any attempt to bypass the hard limit of your server will result in the immediate suspension of your service. This includes tampering with the RAM limits.
