What do you say to a provider who asks the password?
It happened to me now with @greencoludvps. My VPS has been shut down 3 times since last night and there is no sign that this is triggered from inside the server, also because there is very little on the server.
Is it normal to ask for the password? IMO they should never do that. I am not comfortable doing it because there's personal data on it and I can check things myself in the guest os. What is your reaction to these requests?
