Question: I uploaded a file to the server with the File Manager and it told me it was too large - what do I do?

Question: Are there discounts for longer rental periods? For example, if I purchase a 6-month subscription, do I save money compared to if I paid from month to month?
Answer: There are discounts for longer rental periods. - A list of discounts is below
Monthly payments - 0% discount
Quarterly payments (payments every 3 months) - 5% discount
Semi-annually payments (payments every 6 months) - 10% discount
Annual payments (payments every 12 months) - 15% discount
Don't worry about getting bored with your server either, we offer game changing so if you do get bored a month or 2 down the line you can pop in a ticket and ask to be changed to any other game we provide. If the game costs more than what you are currently paying you only pay the difference and if it costs less you get some money back to your credit account with us.
Question: What are reward points? How do I get them, and what can I spend them on?
Answer: Rewards points are earned every time you pay an invoice. You need over 50 reward points to begin spending them. You can spend your reward points on existing services or use them to purchase other services (or any other billable items sold at Pingperfect). They have no cash-out value - you cannot exchange the reward points you earn into money.

Answer: Before cancelling, please always consider the possibility of game switching to another game that we host, that you may want to play instead of the game you're currently renting a server for. If you definitely don't want to game switch your server, the process to cancel is as follows:
1) Login to your account at https://pingperfect.com/clientarea.php
