Our hosting ToS

Unacceptable materials or activities not allowed with our hosting services:

  • Topsites
  • IRC Scripts/Bots
  • Traffic bots or fake traffic
  • Proxy Scripts/Anonymizers
  • Excessive MySQL activity If you have automated sites they will be subjected to revisions in case plugins consume too much resources. In particular we recommend to not install unnecessary plugins, especially weird or unknown plugins (most Warrior forum ‘WSO’ offers), affiliation plugins, plugins that miraculously bring traffic, stats plugins (use Google analytics instead) and caching plugins. A plugin like W3 Total cache can easily triplicate the size of a site because it creates 100s of 1000s of inodes (especially with ‘object cache’ enabled). Our server is cached at hardware level and caching from within WordPress slows down the site rather than making it faster (especially true with our aggregators which generate 1000s of files/pages/tags and change daily).

  • AutoSurf/PTC/PTS/PPC sites

Any user who violates our terms will have their account terminated without notice.

Due to security reasons, inactive accounts (unused accounts, accounts assigned to an expired domain name) will be terminated without notice. We do not accept unsecured accounts (without a valid SSL certificate, free certificates are not accepted). Any unsecured account will be closed without prior notice.

All digital goods and services purchased are not exchangeable or refundable.

 

Please notice that:
1) since all our sites are made with WordPress, which unfortunately is an uncontrolled platform where any kind of plugins can be installed, we do NOT allow installation of plugins that may use excessive server resources, such as building backlinks plugins, ads rotators and ads managers, many stats plugins, some opt-in plugins, URL sharing plugins, emailers plugins, uploaders/sharing plugins, ‘magic traffic’ plugins and so on. Please ask us before installing plugins that may harm both your site and other users, otherwise your account will be suspended without notice.
2) if you purchase a website with domain name and do NOT accept the domain transfer (from Godaddy), the site will be eventually suspended since obviously we cannot be held responsible for a website once a customer has login credentials.
