Only Canadian residents pay tax on top of the hosting fee. The tax rate is determined based on the customer's residential address. So if for example you're located in Ontario you'll have to pay 13% HST on top of your hosting fee. Non Canadian residents DO NOT pay taxes on the hosting fee.
Yes and no. If you have a sufficiently large number of miners hosted with us that we can justify giving you your own network subnet we will allow you to place your own network gear and also your own laptop or desktop in our data center which you can log into remotely via teamviewer. Later on if we can find an affordable way to allow every single customer access to their miners via some sort of web interface we will implement that.
We will have two different shipping locations. One will be where the data center is located in Labrador and the other will be an address in Toronto. The Toronto address can be used if it is cheaper to send your miners there rather than Labrador. Beware that there will be a 10 days delay between when your miners arrive in Toronto until we can drive them up to Labrador. So,timing is important. E-mail us and give us a long enough heads up so we can both co-ordinate this to minimize downtime. Also if you are shipping just one or two miners or some other small quantity it may be ideal to just send it directly to the Labrador address. The shipping addresses will be given out on a per customer basis.
