  33. 20:43 <SysOps_Florin> hello
  34. 20:43 <SysOps_Florin> how may I help you?
  35. 20:43 <john> i was wondering how much hosting space is avalibe
  36. 20:44 <SysOps_Florin> do you want to purchase a VPS hosting plan?
  37. 20:46 <john> Im thinking about it, is all data protected? or will my customers risk data loss if they dont have a back up.
  38. 20:47 <SysOps_Florin> we have a backup system
  39. 20:47 <SysOps_Florin>
  40. 20:47 <SysOps_Florin> this url link shows all the vps hosting plans
  41. 20:48 <john> yay, just wondering about all the data that might be hosted by megaupload, are all there useres data backed up too? until they are offered the means of retrieving it as in the current case?
  42. 20:49 <SysOps_Florin> we are not allowed to discuss megaupload at this moment.
  43. 20:49 <SysOps_Florin>  you can read the official press release here:
  44. 20:52 <john> It doesn't say the data won't be deleted. I want to be sure before I buy hosting, that the data will be safe, no matter what. In my case, will mine and my future customers data be safe on your servers?
  45. 20:53 <SysOps_Florin> we have an emergency backup system
  46. 20:53 <SysOps_Florin> in case the server has technical problems
  47. 20:53 <SysOps_Florin> also there is an optional backup system
  48. 20:54 <SysOps_Florin>
  49. 20:54 <SysOps_Florin> which explains the optional backup system
  50. 20:55 <john> Awesome, so if I get behind on payments, how long do I have before I can no longer access data?
  51. 20:55 <SysOps_Florin> about 15 days before the server stops
  52. 20:55 <john> Is there a discount if I buy multiple gold plans?
  53. 20:56 <SysOps_Florin> not that I know of however you can send an e-mail to the sales department regarding this matter
  54. 20:56 <SysOps_Florin>
  55. 20:56 <SysOps_Florin> is the e-mail address for the sales department
  56. 20:57 <john> Who would my customers contact if something like that happens, and the bill doesnt get paid? Will it be ok If I set up a page where they can all raise enough money to buy there data if such were to happen?
  57. 20:58 <SysOps_Florin> in this case you need to post a ticket and we will discuss this matter at that time
  58. 20:59 <john> Ok, thank you for all the information. Have a great Day!
  59. 20:59 <SysOps_Florin> you are welcome
