What is the network speed?

We run our own network! We do not lease servers from a datacenter and resell them. Due to this, we can speak intelligently about our network status and make changes to it when necessary. Our network connects with multiple gigabit and OC-48 peers, including TWTC, Savvis, Cogent, Broadwing, and Level3. Our servers are connected to the network at 100 mbit. You can read more about our Network [here].

Is IRC content permitted?

No. This includes all forms of IRC clients and IRC servers.

Can I reload my OS?

Yes! You can reload and change your OS at anytime, automatically, via our web control panel. Unlike Virtuozzo's VZPP, which allows you to restore your existing OS only, our panel allows you to change your OS. Today you can be using Fedora and tomorrow, experimenting with Gentoo.
