8. Limitations on Email
Sending mass emails (more than 300 email addresses per hour) on shared hosting accounts may cause your emails to be lost or sent unsuccessfully because of the shared usage of email resources. For mass sending of emails, please purchase our VPS or Dedicated Servers.
9. Fair use on Bandwidth/Data Transfer And What “Unmetered” Means
HOSTNET does not set arbitrary limits on the exact amount of resources a Subscriber can use. In good faith and subject to these Terms, HOSTNET makes every commercially-reasonable effort to provide its Subscribers with the resources needed to power their web sites successfully, as long as the Subscriber’s usage complies with these Terms. By not setting arbitrary limits on resources, HOSTNET is able to provide simple, consistent pricing to Subscribers for their websites.
What “unmetered” DOES NOT mean. In order to ensure a consistent and quality experience for all Subscribers, HOSTNET has automated safeguards in place to protect against any one website from consuming too many resources, and adversely impacting the other Subscribers until HOSTNET can evaluate said site’s resource needs. HOSTNET’s offering of “unmetered” services is not intended to allow the actions of a single or several Subscribers to unfairly or adversely impact the service experienced by other Subscribers.
HOSTNET’s shared hosting service hosts multiple Subscriber web sites from the same server, and allow them to share server resources. HOSTNET’s service is designed to meet the typical needs of individuals and small business website Subscribers. It is NOT intended to support the sustained high demands of large enterprises, international businesses, or non-typical applications better suited to a dedicated server.
HOSTNET does not set arbitrary limits on the exact amount of traffic a website can receive or on the amount of content a Subscriber can upload to his/her/its website in a given month, as long as the Subscriber’s use of the Services complies with these Terms. In most cases, a Subscriber’s web site will be able to support as much traffic as the Subscriber can legitimately acquire. However, HOSTNET reserves the right to limit processor time, bandwidth, processes, memory, or number of files, in cases where it is necessary to prevent other Subscribers from being negatively affected.
To prevent excessive bandwidth usage in a shared environment, and to maintain the quality of data transfer rates for each shared hosting customer, certain heavy bandwidth-intensive sites are discouraged, such as, but not limited to, the following: file sharing (music, video, etc), game servers, etc. Bandwidth usage is checked daily, and successive abusers will be required to upgrade their plans, or failing that, may be subjected to immediate account suspension.
For users that require high data transfer rates, higher resources, and dedicated bandwidth, you should consider upgrading to a VPS account or Dedicated Server to ensure the best resources for your website. Dedicated bandwidth is only applicable for non-shared web hosting.
10. Content and Misuse
10.1 You will use all reasonable endeavours to ensure that the HOSTNET Service is used or includes content that conforms to the laws of this country and will not knowingly permit any illegal use or such use that will bring HOSTNET into disrepute.
10.2 You must not, nor must any other person, use the Service: to send or receive any material which is offensive, abusive, indecent, obscene, pornographic or menacing, or in breach of confidence, copyright, privacy or any other rights, to cause annoyance, inconvenience or needless anxiety, or in breach of any provisions as contained within clauses 3 and 4 of this Contract, or other than in conformance with the acceptable use policies of any connected networks and the Internet standards.
