We know, we know. We can hear the groans coming from the room already. The legal stuff. We dread it, you dread it, but it's most certainly necessary, especially in the hosting business.
PLEASE do not skim through these documents. Read through them carefully. The terms outlined in the documents below are what you will be held responsible for as a client of ours, and we believe that an informed client is an empowered client.
Why a fair usage policy?
This policy was put in place in order to make a firm commitment to ensuring the users of our shared hosting servers have plenty of room to operate their websites fairly without having to worry about others using excessive resources. This policy applies to all web hosting accounts except where otherwise noted.
But I thought my account came with unlimited features! What gives?
Yes, you're correct, but what we examine when determining violations of this policy include factors such as CPU time used, memory usage, load average, and bandwidth, none of which is included under our "unlimited features" banner. If you want to try to run 500 MySQL databases, be our guest- you can create as many as you want with your account. You won't be violating this policy by doing this. What DOES constitute breaking this policy, however, is if the running of these databases infringes on our ability to provide equal server resources to everyone else.
So what limits do we have?
We do not have a single figure or benchmark that signifies what we believe to be excessive usage because we feel that this would be not very helpful and may penalize our users unfairly. What is deemed excessive will be determined by a number of factors including (but not limited to) the length of time which your excessive usage continues for, as well as the amount of resources being used.
What happens if my account breaks this policy?:
VPS, reseller, or dedicated user?
