It’s with a heavy heart that I have to announce that we will be closing our Singapore and Tokyo locations effective 10th March 2016.
The reasons for this are two fold.
1) Earlier this year Softlayer announced they were doing a blanket ban on SMTP (port 25) traffic leaving any servers on their infrastructure. We were not communicated this until they actually put this ban in place. As a result it’s caused us and our clients a lot of headache, and we’re not getting what we paid for.
2) Due to the high amount of abuse at these locations we’re having to suspend and clean up after too many clients. It seems that copyright infringement and malicious activity aren’t recognised in this part of the world by a large group of people and it’s making our job much harder and not worthwhile.
If you get any further invoices for your VPS at this location please do not pay for it. For those that have pre-paid annually or biennially we will issue pro-rated refunds.
Please ensure any data you or services you have have are removed from your mahcines because it will be gone (including our backups) on the 10th of March 2016.
