In the order comments say “My server is affected by Hurricane Sandy.  May I please have the $50 credit.”

We will verify that server has been ‘Sandy-ized’, apply the credit and setup your server.

You will not be required to make any payment until after the credit runs out (typically in 1-2 months depending on what server you order).  You can cancel and shutdown the server at any time.

If you have any questions, just let us know here (in the comments) or in live chat at

  1. Dear Rimu,

    I’m a satisfied customer with you for a few years but feel that this offer is somewhat uncalled for. Am right to understand that you are trying to prie customers away from businesses affected by a natural disaster? I feel this is not in line with how i know rimu to opperate. Or am i mistaken and is this a compensation deal for your current customers? If the later I would urge you to rephrase your message.

    Best regards,
    Joost Schouten

    Another of my goals is for to be the most delightful hosting provider for the world’s best Linux-powered startups. So today we’re going to see what we can do to take the hassle out of the hosting for folks with servers affected by the hurricane.
