Actions Taken by ASTGD

The failure of a customer to meet or follow any of the TOS is grounds for account deactivation. ASTGD will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of the TOS. ASTGD reserves the right to remove any account without prior notice and to refuse service to anyone at any time. When ASTGD becomes aware of an alleged violation of its TOS, ASTGD will initiate an investigation. During the investigation, ASTGD may restrict a customer’s access in order to prevent further potentially unauthorized activity. Depending on the severity of the violation, ASTGD may, at its sole discretion, restrict, suspend, or terminate a customer account and/or pursue other civil remedies. If such a violation is a criminal offense, ASTGD will notify the appropriate law enforcement authorities of such a violation. An unlisted activity may also be a violation of the TOS if it is illegal, irresponsible, or constitutes disruptive use of the Internet. ASTGD does not issue credits for outages incurred through service disablement resulting from TOS violations. Violators of the policy are responsible, without limitations, for the cost of labor to rectify any damage done to the operation of the network and business operations supported by the network and to respond to complaints incurred by ASTGD.

All ASTGD Customer Billing Policy

The following Terms of Service constitute ASTGD’s Billing Policy and apply to ALL ASTGD customers:


All charges are shown in US Dollars. Payments are to be made in US dollars. RDP Ground accepts Perfect Money, PayPal, and Cryptocurrency Exchange. Accounts that are one (1) day past due will be automatically suspended. All past due and unpaid balances are subject to collection.

Time-Based Subscription Method:

The Billing Cycle begins on the Plan Activation Date. You may elect to change your Billing Cycle at any time; however, the new Billing Cycle will only take effect at the starting time of the next plan renewal. All additional features added to an account are charged similarly to the chosen plan.

Pay as You Go (PAY-AS-YOU-GO) method:

In ASTGD’s Pay as You Go method; users are charged based on their instance’s lifetime instead of a billing cycle. ASTGD’s PAY-AS-YOU-GO is based on a pre-paid method in which users must add credit to their account which would be charged while the Instance is active.

Termination and Account Suspension:

We reserve the right to deactivate, terminate, prevent access to, disable services for, and/or delete any Accounts or access to the Websites and Services at any time at our sole discretion, including for nonpayment and late payment upon invoicing. Some of these conditions are from the following: VPS Services: – For all users, the VPS will get suspended by the end of the payment due date. – For all users, the VPS will remain suspended for the following seven (7) days, unless payment is made. – All user VPS will be automatically terminated after 168 hours (7 days) of non-payment. Terminated VPS cannot be recovered should any payments be received after termination.

Account Renewals:

In order to ensure uninterrupted service to your website/VPS, all subscription-based plan’s invoice will be automatically generated fourteen (14) days before the end of the plan’s Billing Cycle. Plan renewal charges are based on the prevailing rate on the date of renewal according to the service selected. Plans are renewed for the same billing cycle. If you wish to cancel your plan before plan renewal, please refer to the Cancellation section below.

Delayed Renewals:

Make sure you will renew the subscription-based service before passing seven (7) days from the service’s due date. So, you can keep using the service for the next billing cycle. Otherwise, the service will be automatically terminated if you renew it after passing seven (7) days from the service’s due date. The termination process will be done by the platform automatically. This is a permanent action and we do not store any backups of terminated services due to the user’s privacy. For PAY-AS-YOU-GO service, the service will be stopped once the balance reaches zero. So, you need to make sure to keep sufficient balance in your account to enjoy uninterrupted service.


In order to cancel services, you must use the “Cancel Account” from your client area. Please be aware that there are no refunds after the 7 days after the beginning of your Billing Cycle. Cancellation requests must be received by ASTGD a minimum of fourteen (14) days before the end of your Billing Cycle for all plans. Cancellations become effective on the day processed by ASTGD. ASTGD is unable to cancel your account effective for a future date. ASTGD will confirm the cancellation request when it is processed. If you do not receive a cancellation confirmation, please contact ASTGD as soon as possible. ASTGD does not monitor, and will not automatically cancel, plans for problems related to domain name transfers, non-usage, Inter NIC, your ISP, or any other secondary issues not directly related to ASTGD’s services. Cancellation of services does not relieve the customer from paying any outstanding balance owed on the account. ASTGD reserves the right to cancel any account, at any time, without notice, for any reason ASTGD considers appropriate.
