To serve our customers better and offer the most reliable and FASTEST possible environment, HOSTMARGIN has developed this acceptable use policy to define the types of behavior that will not be permitted in HOSTMARGIN’s network. Please report any known violations to firstname.lastname@example.org.
HOSTMARGIN’s general policy is to act as a provider of Internet presence. HOSTMARGIN reserves the right to suspend or cancel any customer’s access to any or all services provided by HOSTMARGIN when we decide that the account has been inappropriately used. HOSTMARGIN decides what is inappropriate and reserves the right to immediate action to suspend or cancel any account or access when admin is affecting other clients, and without warning when needed. An outline of Specific Acceptable Use Policies are to follow:
All services provided by HOSTMARGIN may be used for lawful purposes only. This includes, but is not limited to: copyrighted material, material we judge to be threatening or obscene, pornography or material protected by trade secret and other statute.
The customer agrees to indemnify and hold HOSTMARGIN inculpable from any claims resulting from the use of the service that damages the subscriber or any other party. Examples of unacceptable content or links:
HOSTMARGIN will not permit to host videos, films, movies, mp3 files, songs, any privacy protected contents in any of our shared servers.
Domain Changes on Existing Shared Hosting Account allowed only on unlimited plan. Otherwise you need to buy new account with new domain
Any unauthorized use of accounts or computers by a HOSTMARGIN customer, whether or not the attacked account or computer belongs to HOSTMARGIN, will result in action against the attacker. Possible actions include warnings, account suspension or cancellation, and civil or criminal legal action, depending on the seriousness of the attack. HOSTMARGIN will strongly react to any use or attempted use of an Internet account or computer without the owner’s authorization. Such attempts include “Internet scamming” (tricking other people into releasing their passwords), password robbery and so on.
We do not allow clients to install their own chat rooms without first having the installation approved by the HOSTMARGIN Support Team. Most chat rooms tend to be large system hogs and we cannot allow it as an account option.
We do not allow usage of CGI-based message board scripts (like UBB, UB2K, 360forum, etc. ), since such scripts on busy sites bring high loads to CPU and memory and at a high load can cause the server to crash. Please consider using php based bulleting boards like Vbulletin, phpBB, XMB, Burning board, etc. instead. These php based and MySQL-based boards cause much lighter load to the server.
We may allow programs to run continually in the background. These are considered on an ad-hoc basis and an extra charge will be incurred based on the system resources used and the operational maintenance needed.
We currently do not allow IRC or IRC bots to be operated on our servers unless you have prior permission from a HOSTMARGIN Administrator.
No system in the world has unlimited resources, and we expect you to act responsibly when consuming resources on our system. If you consume unnecessary and excessive resources on our system we may suspend your access at any time without prior notice to correct the situation. Users may not initiate the following on our servers:
HOSTMARGIN reserves the right to change the price of any services at any time on 30 days’ notice to the current customers. Contract pricing customers will not be affected by any price change throughout the contract period.
We encourage you to contact our technical support team through email at email@example.com. Also we provide support through Live Chat, Yahoo, Skype,and Google Talk.
As the servers are connected to the Internet constantly, the content in the servers are exposed to hacker attacks, viruses and other adverse effects. For these and many other reasons, customers may lose the whole content of their servers/account. It is necessary to take a backup system. Hostmargin is not providing backup for all account. Backups will be taken as per the request only. We do not account for incomplete backups and render no compensation for non-current data contained in the backups. We will be charged Rs. 600/- for per Backups.
All plans have a set allotment of Bandwidth available for use. Any bandwidth usage that is over the limit of the monthly allotment will be charged according to the terms that are set forth in the order form. Unused bandwidth may not roll over to the following month.
Spamming and mail bombing is strictly prohibited. Any customer who uses his e-mail for spamming will have his account terminated immediately. All fees and pre-paid services will not be refunded. HOSTMARGIN will act as the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this condition.
Our Charges on spaming:
– If IP is Blacklisted then we charge $100 USD for Unsuspension for providing backup of your account.
– If your account is suspended for Spamming then we charge $25 for providing backup of your account.
If your want to send thousands of emails then please do not choose us because of we do not support spaming on our server, sorry!
or if you want to send newsletter(not spam) then you can purchase our VPS plans.
As part of the hosting plans, a domain registration service can be obtained. Please review our domain registration agreement and uniform domain name dispute resolution policy set forth by ICANN. It is the customer’s responsibility to check these agreements on a regular basis.
HOSTMARGIN will on occasion register a domain name for a customer as part of the service rendered. This domain name is the property of HOSTMARGIN until the first year of paid service is completed. At this point, the customer may opt to transfer the domain name into his name. HOSTMARGIN will assess a charge per domain name registered after the first domain with our paid service. Further, HOSTMARGIN Ltd will assess a charge for accounts terminated before the first year is completed. This is to cover the expense of registering the domain name for the customer.
Any account that excessively uses the server resources may be temporarily stopped to provide optimal server resources for other users. If any account is found to be affecting server performance for a prolonged period of time, it may be disabled/Suspend/Terminate the account without any notice. We recommend moving such sites to a dedicated hosting solution.
Violation of Network System such as, but not limited to unauthorized access, or trying to breach network security is prohibited. Any time a security breach is detected, the involved Server will be immediately shut down. Our technicians will immediately investigate the situation.
