General Acceptable Use Policy

Prohibited Content and Activities

Illegal Activity

Customer may only use shared hosting services for lawful purpose. Transmission of any material in violation of any Federal, State or Local laws is prohibited. To this effect, child pornography is strictly prohibited as well as housing any copyrighted information (to which the customer does not hold the copyright or an appropriate license) on servers. Also, using servers or networks to conspire to commit or support the commission of illegal activities is forbidden as well.


Websites dedicated to the discussion of hacking activities or the distribution of hacking tools are prohibited. Also, the usage of computer systems or networks to access any system, service, or networks without the owner’s consent is expressly forbidden.

Service Interruptions

Any activity which causes service interruptions to servers or networks or any outside network. This includes, but is not limited to, the execution of denial of service attacks (DoS) or other maliciously configured software.

Anonymous Proxies

Anonymous proxies are easily abused and often cause a negative impact on both the servers and the networks they are connected to. As such, they’re prohibited on servers.


Customer agrees to not have any content on their site that advocates, sells or in any way makes available tools or methods to send unsolicited commercial e-mail (UCE) or usenet postings (i.e., spam), or to use servers for relaying UCE or usenet postings, or to use UCE or usenet postings to advertise for their site hosted on servers. Any complaint we receive about a violation of this or the preceding two points will be taken very seriously and will result in immediate account cancellation without a refund.

Personal Information Harvesting

Collecting or using e-mail addresses, screen names or other personally identifiable information without the consent of the person identified (including, without limitation, phishing, Internet scamming, password robbery, spidering, and harvesting).


You agree that if the IP numbers assigned to or used by your account are listed on an abuse database or blacklist (e.g., Spamhaus or SpamCop), you will be in violation of this policy, and may take reasonable action to protect its IP numbers, including suspension and/or termination of your service, regardless of whether the IP numbers were listed as a result of your actions.

Investment sites

FOREX, egold exchange, etc.


Usage of the network to impersonate another person or entity, be it through e-mail, Internet forums, or any other means, is strictly prohibited. This includes spoofing e-mail and network packet headers whether or not it is done for malicious purposes.


Customer agrees to not engage in activities pertaining to Black Hat SEO, Spamdexing, and so-called “Scraper sites.” These can all have a detrimental effect on server performance and are not permitted.

Any conduct that is likely to result in retaliation against servers or networks, or employees, officers or other agents, including engaging in behavior that results in any server being the target of a denial of service attack (DoS).

Personal Backups

With the exception of Dedicated Server products, the customer agrees to make use of shared hosting services primarily for the purpose of hosting a website, and associated e-mail functions. Data uploaded must be primarily for this purpose. Web Hosting servers are not intended as a data backup or archiving service. Web Hosting reserves the right to negotiate additional charges with the Customer and/or the discontinuation of the backups/archives at their discretion. If you exceed your allocated transfer bandwidth for a month, you will be billed at the rate of $1 per additional 1 GB.

Prohibited Content and Activities

Adult Thumbnail Galleries/Banner Exchanges

You agree not to run a banner exchange, free adult thumbnail gallery post (TGP), or free adult image galleries on your website.

Abusive Scripts/Processes

Any script/process/etc that adversely affects the ability of any other customer to satisfactorily use their provided services is forbidden. This includes, but is not limited to, CPU-intensive CGI/PHP scripts and websites for which the scale of traffic has exceeded the acceptable limits of a shared hosting environment.

IRC Bots/Bouncers

All IRC bots and “bouncers” (bnc, etc) are forbidden.

BitTorrent software

While we recognize the value in the BitTorrent protocol as a distribution method, it is far too easily (and often accidentally) abused/misused and therefore not allowed on Shared Hosting services.

Proxy Software

All proxy software, anonymous or otherwise, is forbidden on Shared Hosting services.

Network Daemons

Any process that opens a network socket to accept connections from external networks is forbidden. Processes are allowed to bind to the local host only, but are held to the limitations placed on all other processes. They must not use up more than their fair share of resources and they must not interfere with any other customers’ activities.
