You will be notified in time, and you'll have to remove (censor) the material we'll point out, immediately. If Extreme Hosting will need to contact you more than 3 times about a violation caused by you, your account will be discontinued with no refund.
3.3. MP3 Distribution Sites
Extreme Hosting will not host any sites used for MP3 file trading through anonymous ftp or web.
5.1. IRC and IRC bots
We currently do not allow IRC or IRC bots to be operated on our servers, sorry. These tend to be huge system resource hogs and are usually a cause for spam compaints.
5.2. Web proxy scripts
Web proxy scripts are not allowed on our servers in any form.
Crontabs are allowed as long as they are not abusing the server by any means.
7.1. Spam - Commercial Advertising Email
As long as multiple recipients haven't agreed to be on your mailing list, then spamming, or sending unsolicited email, from a Extreme Hosting server or using an e-mail address that is maintained on an Extreme Hosting machine OR advertising a site hosted on an Extreme Hosting server is STRICTLY prohibited. Extreme Hosting scans the system and will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision.
8.1. Server Usage
Many things can slow down a server. In order to guarantee the fastest possible connections, we need to monitor
our servers for processes that overload them. Any party that slows our servers down, can and will be notified. Extreme Hosting
reserves the right to kill any process (i.e. end a software's execution) that is overloading a server, or slowing it down heavily.
Each account is allowed to use a fair portion of the server's Cpu time and Ram memory. We stick to the 60 minute rule, which means
that each shared hosting account may not use more than 60 minutes of Cpu time per day. Accounts that generate more than 60 minutes
of Cpu usage per day will be notified and asked to optimize their website performance to fit under 60 minutes or upgrade to a
managed dedicated server with no Cpu limitations. We reserve the right to refuse shared hosting service to websites that slow down our shared hosting
servers heavily or fail to fit under 60 minutes of Cpu time. Customers that fail to optimize their websites and continue to use more than 60 minutes of Cpu time per day on a shared hosting server will have their accounts discontinued after a notice has been sent.
In addition, each web hosting account is not allowed to use more than 20% of the system's total CPU resource in a given 5 minute period.
Accounts that exceed this limit will be automatically suspended for the next 5 minute period in order to prevent system overload.
MySQL - each web hosting account is not allowed to have more than 25 simultaneous MySQL connections.
Inodes - a single account may not use more than 250000 inodes. Accounts that are using more than 250000 inodes will be warned and if they fail to go
below the limit or upgrade to a dedicated server will be suspended after a notice. An Inode refers to a file or a directory, not the actual size of
the file or directory. In other words this means that you may not host more than 250000 files or directories. We force this restriction due to Inode abuse
which often results in HDD failures affecting the whole shared hosting servers. In addition, all accounts using more than 100000 inodes are automatically excluded from our off-site backup.
Disk space - Accounts at Extreme Hosting may be used for hosting websites only. This means that you may not:
- upload content which you are not the owner of the copyrights
- use your account for file upload/sharing, backup purposes, archive, mirroring, file distrubution.
- store files with the only purpose to take up disk space.
- store files that are not part of your website. This includes but is not limited to: backups, archive files, site mirrors, avi/wmv or any other files that
are not considered to be website content.
- use your account for transport point via ftp or http for transferring files to 3rd parties.
Extreme Hosting is a web hosting provider, not a storage space provider. This means that you may not use your account for storing
archive files, backups, audio and video files that are not part of your website. Any content that is not part of your website must
not exceed more than 20% of the account's total disk space. Any files that are not html, php, images, icons or flash files are considered
not to be website content.
Certain limitations are forced to ensure proper distribution of system resources between shared hosting accounts.
Audio and video files must not exceed more than 20% of total disk space assigned to a given hosting account.
Accounts violating this provision will be notified and may get suspended if they fail to optimize their usage.
Managed dedicated server accounts have no restrictions.
Extreme Hosting will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of any of these provisions.
8.2. Server Abuse
Any attempts to undermine or cause harm to a Extreme Hosting server or customer of Extreme Hosting is strictly prohibited, and is followed by deactivation of account with no refund.
8.3. Traffic usage
All customers who exceed their traffic would have their accounts automatically suspended.
A short e-mail reminder notice will be sent when traffic usage reaches 90% and 100% after which the account would be
deactivated. Failure to receive this notification would not be considered as a reason for complaint. Extreme Hosting is
not responsible for any loses users may have because of automatic site deactivation. It is customer's responsibility to
monitor regularly his/her site bandwidth usage through the control panel. Unused traffic (including additional traffic) is not carried over into a new period.
8.4. Additional traffic
Additional traffic that has not been consumed during the current pay period will not be carried for the next pay period.
Customers are responsible for backups of their data. We create a backup copy of customer files every 24 hours and we only keep the newest backup. Any file that is bigger than 500MB is excluded from the backup.
In order for a customer to be eligible for a refund, no policy violations may have been made by the customer.
9.2. Acceptable Refunds
All refunds requested with a valid complaint will get a refund of the month's hosting. A valid complaint is determined by Extreme Hosting. These include but are not limited to:
Domain name registrations are non-refundable.
If customer can support or prove his or her complaint in a valid manner
Extreme Hosting overcharged credit card
9.3. Unacceptable Complaints for Refund
Some customers will request refunds, whereas their reasons are not valid. These include, but are not limited to:
Slow connection caused by client's ISP/network
Client's ignorance and/or negligence
Nonpayment for service by customer
9.4. Amounts paid to the Account Wallet by the customer are non-refundable. This includes any remaining balance after charges have been made to the Wallet system.
Upon signup each user is assigned an internal payment account called Wallet. Initially the Wallet would have zero ($0.00) balance. All recurring charges are attached to the Wallet, not to the credit card of the user. It is customer's responsibility to ensure that the Wallet contains sufficient amount to cover upcoming payments. Users that do not have enough funds on their Wallet account will receive an automatic e-mail reminder. Failure to rebill next month fee would result in immediate account suspension. Suspended accounts would be kept 1 month. Exceptions may apply.
10.2. Domain name registrations
If a customer registers domain name through Extreme Hosting then he/she authorizes Extreme Hosting to register the name using his/her contact information provided during signup.
Domain name registrations are final and are not subject to refund.
If a serious violation of any policy, warning and/or rule has been committed, Extreme Hosting reserves the right to block a user from hosting services for a lifetime, with no refund.
12.1. Unlimited packages
Unlimited packages offered by Extreme Hosting are not metered in disk space and bandwidth, but this does not mean that they offer an infinite resouce.
Those packages must still comply with all other account usage limitations. In addition, a reasonable amount of disk space and monthly traffic may be used. Unlimited packages may not be used
for storing backups or other files with the single purpose to simply take disk space. Unlimited packages may not be used for file sharing or direct downloads. Accounts that are found to be overloading our servers or violating our terms and conditons will be warned
and may get suspended with or without prior notice.
If any terms or conditions are failed to be followed, it will result in grounds for account deactivation.
