Service shut off without warning - locked out of ALL machines

Posted May 8, 2015 2.5k views

DO has locked me out of all droplets.

They do not:
Allow me to retrieve files
Allow me to disable billing
Allow me to dispute the resolution

So I am going to be charged from here on out, and I am going to lose my intellectual property, because of DO’s failed “customer service?”

Please do yourself a favor and find another hosting provider before this happens to you!

  • Ohhh, come on man - you’ve been bitching about this topic for days so don’t come here and make people believe that DO shut you down “out of the blue” and advice us to look for another provider.

    If you’re so interested in running a Tor exit node I’d assume you did at least some basic research on the topic. It took me 30 seconds to find this:

    DigitalOcean is also listed there and it clearly states what you can do and what not:
    Brides = yes
    Relays = yes
    Exit = no

    And btw, Tor has been compromised for a while now so you’re actually helping more people out by not running a Tor server instead of providing folks with a false sense of security.
