Login page says "This site is restricted" I have tried to resolve the issue with 6 different support agents, spent more than 2 hours each time, and none of them has been able to help me out. Those guys are completely useless.... More Do yourself a favor and keep your stuff away from this host! Less

Please be careful when choosing this company . I chose a VPS from this company and paid annually. As soon as I installed the lnmp environment, The VPS server was closed, the company support saying that I was sending spam, and... More then I filed a protest. After reinstalling the system, it turned on again. I continued to install lnmp and actively closed port 25. When I slept, I found that the service was terminated. The reason was still spam, So I asked them to investigate this situation and refund. At the time of purchase, their website clearly stated that there was a 30-day money-back guarantee. As a result, they refused my refund request. I asked them to actively check my behavior on the server because of their so-called spam, I did not send it. But they do not respond to my request.
There is another weird thing. At the beginning of the service, I could not log in to their vps server with ssh. After I sent a service order request, I could log in.
I suspect that they control the client's server for improper gain, or that the server is completely hacked.
Please be cautious.
