Intentionally Causing a Denial of Service: We understand that your server may become busy, but if a few ip addresses are opening hundreds of connections, or if you install a program that consumes 100% of your allocated cpu, disk, or other shared I/O resource for an extended period of time, we reserve the right to throttle you back. 99.9% of people never come anywhere close to the limits we have in place. In addition, if your vps is the target of ingress network attacks that we reserve the right to suspend, null-route, and/or terminate your services with us without notice as we see fit to protect our infrastructure. If your vps is the repeated target of network attacks you will be terminated as we will not permit a single vps to cause repeated service disruption for our other clients on our network.

You must then cease the activity that caused the listing and contact us to request unblocking of the port or the block will remain in place.

Do you have CPU resource quotas? On all our plans, CPU is allocated as fair-share, which means you are able to burst up to the entire capacity of the server if nobody else is using the CPU. However, we reserve the right to throttle your CPU quota if your usage causes a disruption to other clients on the same machine as you or causes a disruption to the stability of the host system. Also note that due to the nature of fair share CPU usage programs designed to saturate the CPU, such as BOINC, Distributed.net, Crypto Coin Mining, and other similar programs, are forbidden on this service.
