What is your SLA like?

Under our service level agreement (SLA), we guarantee 99.98% uptime. The allotted downtime comes to a total of 8 minutes and 38 seconds per month. If a server's unavailability exceeds this amount, please alert tech support via ticket-system and you will be compensated.

What is your policy towards TOR?

Vscale users are responsible for everything that happens on their servers. If we detect or are alerted of any suspicious activity, we reserve the right to block the account and delete the servers the suspicious activity was detected from (see point 4.5 of the SLA).

Can I make suggestions on how to improve your service?

Of course. You can always share your questions, comments, and suggestions with us via ticket system or email.
