China National Day Holidays

Due to the national days holidays here in China our office will be closed from October 1st to 8th. Phone support will be unavailable during that time. We will however continue to provide basic support through email and support tickets. New orders will be processed as usual, however for dedicated servers we won’t be able to get them up as local datacenters will not be operating during that period.

Hong Kong dedicated servers coming soon

August 26th, 2009 shadmin

Due to popular demand, we will be launching a new offering of dedicated servers in Hong Kong datacenters very soon.
