The service is not intended as an alternative to mainstream providers.

The hosting service cannot be expected to supply the same standard as mainstream providers and is more susceptible to network degradation and downtime. Our suppliers have been chosen based on performance and reliability so that all action has been taken to limit any degradation in the quality of service.

The sale and supply of so-called "fully loaded" devices are strictly prohibited, we DO NOT operate this service.
