Frequently Asked Questions

  • What guarantees do you provide?

    We provide a 60-day 100% money-back guarantee on all hosting accounts. Everything except for domain registrations, which are managed separately, is refundable.
  • What security is in place?

    We use two filesystem security models: (a) a pivot-root isolation for all services except PHP and (b) a combination of access control lists and open_basedir restrictions for PHP to restrict access to interpreters and filesystem locations outside the pivot root assigned to an account. In addition to filesystem isolation and restrictions, brute-force protection is in place for login systems restricting invalid logins. Finally, certain file storage URIs for well-known PHP applications are locked down to serve only static content.
  • Do you do only Linux hosting?

    Yes, our parents told us as children to do one thing, and do it well. We specialize in shared hosting with enhanced process isolation to safeguard your data from others.
  • Do you provide phone support?

    Yes, phone support is provided for Business and Enterprise clients.

    For Essential and Developer clients, please open a support ticket in the control panel or check out our knowledge base.
  • Why are there limits on storage and transfer?

    It is better to provide clients with guarantees, like backups and server performance. How do you backup unlimited data? How do you plan hardware for unlimited usage? Sadly, unicorn technology is not where it needs to be yet.
  • What does a RAM allocation provide?

    RAM allocations are done per-account using control groups to provide clients with a fair, equitable amount of resources. You can run as many Passenger or background applications as you would like. Unlike a VPS, system services do not count towards your memory usage!
  • How many Passenger workers are permitted per application instance?

    Up to 3 workers may spawn for a given instance. More than 3 may be spawned on a case-by-case basis, but puts pressure on your account RAM.
  • What applications are supported by Passenger?

    Virtually any application that runs off Node.js (this includes Meteor), Python, or Ruby is supported as a standalone Passenger application. This includes derivative frameworks such as Sinatra, Rack, Koa, Mezzanine and software such as NodeBB, Trac, Discourse, and Keystone.
  • Can I change my package type?

    Certainly! You may change packages whenever. All credit is prorated per diem and applied to the difference of the new package. In the event of a downgrade, credit is converted into additional days. Read more in the KB.
