Is there any type of money back guarantee on your hosting?
Yes – We offer all of our customers a full 30-day money back guarantee on all of our hosting packages. If you find that you are not satisfied with your hosting experience we will provide you with a full refund, no questions asked. There is no refund for domain names, however, as you are provided full ownership of the domain for one year. You can transfer your domain at any time.
What payment options are available?
We accept credit card, debit card, bank wire and PayPal.
Are there any hidden or extra charges?
No. We never charge you for anything with you being aware of the costs.
What hours do you offer technical support?
Our technical support team is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week via phone, live chat and email.
Are your servers monitored?
Yes. Administrators monitor our servers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Do you allow adult content on your servers?
No. We do not allow pornographic material to be hosted on our servers. We do permit certain types of artistic material so if you have questions about a specific example please contact our support team.
Are telnet and SSH connections permitted?
Our VPS and unmanaged dedicated servers allow full SSH access.
Do you allow customers to purchase a domain name with hosting?
Yes. We sell the most common top level domains (TLDs) including .net, .com, .org, .info and others. We also offer some of the newer TLDs. When you purchase any domain with us you will be given full ownership for one year. You can learn more about domain names HERE.
If I already own a domain name how can I add it to GGS hosting?
You will need to point your domain at our servers. To do this you can contact the company where your domain name was purchased and ask them to update the names servers. The name servers they need to use are:
My auto-renew failed. What do I do?
The most common reason for an auto-renew to fail is because your credit card information is outdated or no longer valid. To fix this issue simply update your payment information to complete the auto-renew process. If your domain has already expired, simply complete the manual renewal process to reactive your domain. If you have any questions about this process, please contact our support team right away.
What happens if I don't renew my domains?
We make every effort possible to help ensure you don’t lose the domains you want to keep, which includes several notifications.
We will send out a total of four email reminders to renew your domain. This begins about 45 days before the expirtation date of your domain. We’ll send additional reminders 25 days before and then 5 days before the domain expires. Finally, we’ll send another email 3 days after your domain has expired.
If at this point we still can not secure a payment for the domain, your domain will expire. At this point your page will be deactivated and a ‘parking’ page will be put up, which indicates that the domain is no longer active. Other services you have with your domain may also stop functioning.
As soon as 31 days after the expiration date, your domain may be auctioned, sold, deleted or otherwise disposed of. If a third party purchases the domain name at any point after the 31 days, it will NOT be available for you to reactivate.
As early as 45 days after the date of expiration, if your domain has not yet been purchased by any third parties, it will enter a 60 day redemption grace period. If you choose to renew your domain name at any point during this holding period (and it has not already been purchased by a third party) you may be charged a $200 reactivation fee (plus the annual renewal fees).
If the redemption period ends without being renewed or purchased by a third party the domain name will be held for five days, at which point it will be deleted from our system and released back for general registration.
I have updated the name servers for my domain but my site is still not coming up. What is wrong?
After changing the name servers for your domain it can take up to 24-72 hours for the changes to propagate through to our servers. While you wait, however, you can access your site through a temporary URL: http://servername.gogetspace.com/~username
If you have any further issues with your domain, please don’t hesitate to contact our technical support teams.
Is there an affiliate program available?
Yes. We offer a very competitive affiliate program. You can learn more about it HERE.

Can I add a firewall to my server?
Yes, we encourage all clients to configure iptables and keep your system up to date with all security patches available.
How are server resources allocated?
Each ‘cloud’ is made up of one or more units, which are known as nodes. Each node is allocated a set amount of shared CPU and RAM, which are only accessible to that node. In addition, a set amount of SAN storage (disk space) and bandwidth are issued to each node. To increase the resources for a given client, additional nodes are assigned to their ‘cloud.’ We never oversell our servers and we never share resources between clients with our VPS.
Can I add resources and software to my VPS if needed?
Absolutely. This type of scalability is one of the best things about VPS hosting. As your needs increase, resources can be added to your VPS to keep up with demand. If needed we can also move you to larger and/or multiple servers to ensure your site performs well for your visitors.
How reliable is VPS hosting? Will another client’s application be able to crash my server?
VPS hosting is extremely reliable. Unlike shared hosting, with a VPS your entire system is in its own isolated, virtual environment. While there are other clients on the same physical server, they are unable to impact anything in your environment. Each client has its own operating system and root access so even if one client’s system completely crashes, the others on the box won’t be impacted in any way.
Are Virtual Private Servers customizable?
Yes, you can use your VPS for almost anything you can imagine. This includes hosting limitless domains, installing applications and even reselling hosting services. To put it simply, your VPS environment is as customizable as you would like it to be.
Is there an uptime guarantee with your VPS hosting?
Absolutely, we offer a 99.9% network uptime guarantee. For full details please see our service level agreement (SLA).
How do I upgrade my account if needed?
You can upgrade your VPS anytime you would like. The easiest way to do this is to open a ticket to our sales department or email at [email protected] Make sure you include your customer ID with your request. Once you complete an upgrade, however, you may not request a downgrade for a minimum of one month.
Am I allowed to host adult, warez or illicit content on my VPS?
No. We do not permit this type of content. For a full explanation of permissible and non-permissible content please see our Acceptable Use Policy (AUP).
How will I be provided with my login details?
All your login details will be sent to you via email.
If I request an upgrade to my VPS will there be any downtime?
No, we can perform any upgrades to your VPS without any downtime at all.
When will I receive my renewal invoice and when is it due?
We generate and send out invoices 7 days prior to their due dates.
