  • How long does it take to verify a crypto payment?

    No comments May 12th, 2018 978

    Typically, most payments are verified in under 10 minutes. However, we have seen payments take as long as an hour to complete verification.  If it has been more than 24 hours and your payment has not completed, please contact our billing or sales team.

  • Can I install my own SSL certificate for SmarterMail?

    No comments January 6th, 2017 1684

    Yes, we do allow our customers to supply us with their own SSL certificate to secure our SmarterMail webmail interface with their own domain name. The price is $3 monthly or $30 annually. This does not include the SSL certificate, it is the customer’s responsibility to provide ASPnix with the certificate as well as notify ASPnix of the certificate expiration and providing the renewed certificate for installation.

    The following browsers support the required technology for this feature to work properly…

  • How does ASPnix store my credit card information? Is my credit card information safe?

    1 comment March 16th, 2015 2824

    Many customers have asked about how their credit card details are handled and stored, with all the recent exploits and security breaches in 2014 / 2015 we feel we should let our customers in on our operations and security.

    When a customer makes a payment using their credit card, we do store the provided credit card details in our database systems. This information is stored to automate invoice payments, domain renewals and other billing related services to make it easier for our customers. 

    The following information is stored when a customer pays with their credit card…

    1. The full credit card number
    2. The last 4 numbers of the card
    3. The expiration date / issue date

    The CVV or security code is never stored on our systems. All of the above information is stored in a 128-bit AES encrypted data blob and seeded with a passphrase that is 32-random-characters in length. The passphrase is only known / accessible by 2 employees within our company. Even if the encrypted data blob is retrieved, it cannot be decrypted without the passphrase.

    The database systems that store all user information, services details, invoices etc. that our billing system operates out of are not publicly accessible, do not run locally alongside the web server and are secured with very strong randomly generated passwords. Access to the database systems is secured through VPN access only.

    Our billing software is updated immediately when a new release is available to maintain high levels of security. We also have in-house developed scripts and software that monitor requests and traffic for intrusion attempts, SQL exploits / injections, fake / fraudulent signups and more. We also exceed PCI requirements which are designed to ensure that your credit card information is secure. You can view our PCI compliance here –

    While no system is 100% secure, we do our best to make sure that our system is as secure as possible. We monitor for new threats, new exploits, and fraudulent activity to make sure we stay on top of our security.

    If you have any questions, concerns or comments, please do not hesitate to contact us!

  • “Order Verification Required” – Why am I being asked for verification documents?

    No comments March 19th, 2014 3074

    Please do not take offense or feel upset in any way. Today’s world is full of Credit Card fraud, to protect us, our customers and Credit Card owners we may ask for verification documents for various reasons. Such as…

    • Your order has a high chance of fraud or has been flagged as “high-risk”
    • The distance between your billing address and ordering location is very large or the locations do not match
    • We feel that the account details are false or inaccurate (such as your name, address, phone number)
    • Very large or expensive orders

    If you’ve ever been asked for your ID when making a purchase at a store using your credit card, this is no different. We simply want to be sure that all your account details are correct, that the credit card is authorized for use by you and sometimes our anti-fraud system does make mistakes. Once the requested documents have been provided to us, we will activate and approve your order ASAP.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our billing department.

  • What does the “Network & Server Status” page show / do for me? Are the results live?

    No comments July 2nd, 2013 3990

    Our “Network & Server Status” page displays our network and server services status in live. The online or offline icon next to each server / service is generated at the time of your request, no caching is done here. The system goes to each server we’ve setup and queries for a list of services (which we’ve specified) and tries to connect to the TCP / UDP port specified. If it can connect, it assumes the service is online, if it times-out waiting for a response, it assumes the service is offline. It is a very simple system that allows you to easily view the status of any server at any time.

    We’ve even integrated our Prtg monitoring system graphs and uptime stats into our status system as well! Simply click the “Graph” icon next to the server you wish to view and you will be shown the servers current services and their statuses, total uptime, monitoring start date, and the service graphs straight from our Prtg system.

    All this information is generated in real-time and is not doctored in any way, it is real deal when it comes to our servers and services!
