The definitions can be found in the “Interpretation & Definitions” section of the Terms of Service.

Shared Hosting Services

Resources such as MySQL databases, subdomains, mail accounts, and FTP accounts should not be used or created in such a way that can potentially have adverse effects on the normal, optimal operation of our services.

It is acknowledged by You that these resources are limited by physical restraints of technology as well as by reasonable limits of a shared resource environment. You must realize that server technology limits the amount of available resources for use, including but not limited to disk drive space, CPU processing power, memory, and access speed. We take measures to utilize the latest and most economically feasible mass server market technology available to provide services. It is furthermore acknowledged by You that all provided services are of a shared-server nature, and other users are sharing the provided space. Custom accounts are placed on a server with up to hundreds of other users. We, along with many other hosting providers, use this business model in order to offer web hosting services at inexpensive and affordable rates.

It is acknowledged that any single account is entitled to utilize the server resources, within reason, up to what is allotted or by what is physically available. If resources become scarce, We reserve the right to limit users of the affected machine to a lower limit to preserve the effectiveness of the service for all users. If You are in extreme excess of what the average users of the machine have in use (actually used) of their resource allotments, You may be asked to remove content, cut resource usage, or relocate to a dedicated service provider. This policy only applies to web sites that are considered to be abusive in service, disk space or resource consumption and where it is evident that the “fair-use” of resources among customers has been breached, particularly in regards to disk space, bandwidth or CPU processing power utilization. Additionally, web sites that are found to contain either/or no html documents, a large number of unlinked files are subject to warning, suspension or cancellation at our sole discretion.

In the event a “Fair-Use” breach occurs, which’s determination is solely up to Us, You may have to remove files from or reduce access to Your account to an extent as determined by Us, in order to restore full serviceability to other users affected by the breach. In any case, You will be notified of any actions that we may have to take.
