Such resources include but are not limited to: Server Memory Usage, CPU usage, MySQL server usage, mail server usage, web server usage etc. Failure by the Customer to maintain his/her account in full compliance with the terms listed below may result in a warning, suspension or immediate account termination with no refund. The Company has the right to decide what constitutes a violation of the terms below:

  • Customer's use of traffic (bandwidth): Customer's account monthly traffic is limited in accordance with the Customer's hosting plan. If the monthly traffic limit is reached before the end of the month the Customer's account will be suspended until the beginning of the next month. Additional traffic can be ordered for the given month, so that account suspension is avoided. No traffic can be transferred from month to month.
  • Customer's use of disk space: Customer's account disk space is limited in accordance with the Customer's hosting plan. The customer should pay fee for additional disk space consumed.
  • Customer's use of email service: The Customer should use the email and other related services in full compliance with the terms below:

    1. Each Customer's account is allowed to send a maximum of 60 emails per hour. Any account that exceeds this limitation is endangering the overall server performance.

  • Customer's use of Database Resources: Customer should use the MySQL database server resources in a way that does not endanger the quality of the overall server performance. A database that generates more than 10% of the database queries longer than 1 second at any given time endangers the overall server performance. The Customer is responsible to manage his/her database(s) so that it is in compliance with this policy.
  • Customer's Use of Shared Server CPU: The Customer account should NOT use more than 10% of the shared server CPU for a period longer than 5 seconds. Any account that is using more than 10% of the shared server CPU for more than 5 seconds is endangering the overall shared server performance.

  • Other Customer's account limitations: The limitations listed below apply to each Customer's account and failure by the Customer to comply with them will endanger the overall server performance:
    1. No more than 20 simultaneous processes will be executed by the Customer's account at any given time.
