Windows VPS Randomly shutting down every hour?

If your Windows VPS is randomly shutting down every hour or so this is normally caused by a Windows activation issue. First, check if your Windows OS has a valid license key and is currently activated. If not please follow the below instructions, if a license key has been entered and is valid submit a support ticket via the client area for further assistance. 

To fix this problem simply :

  1. Open CMD on your VPS

  2. Type in > slmgr /rearm

  3. Once it has finished, it will ask you to restart, do so, then your good to go.
