We do have some limits on what kind of sites we will host & things you can do with those sites.
For most folks these are not an issue at all. If they are for you we know, with 100% certainty, there are other places on the web where you can find service providers that will meet your needs. We're just not one of them.
If you violate the 2 pretty simple & clear rules below (listed as RULE #1 & RULE #2), we'll shut your site down IMMEDIATELY and without refund.
We have & reserve the right to make final determination as to whether your site(s) or activity on or through your site(s) violates the rules. We have and reserve the right to view your site(s) and/or check your traffic volume in making our determination.
Also, separately & apart from any our policies regarding the acceptable use rules listed below, we have & reserve the right to assure your disk usage, through-put volume and number of email addresses are consistent with the allocations of your subscription. We are happy to consider increasing your allocations by either moving you to a higher capacity subscription or providing optional incremental capacities for a small charge on a case-by-case basis. In other words, we will always work with you to assure you get the best value for your subscription.
Here are the rules in plain English:
RULE #1) Sites cannot be about, point to other sites which are about, promote, support or directly sell products intentionally and specifically related to the following sorts of things in no particular: "adult" content (defined as any site which requires viewers be 18 or older to enter), hate, terrorism, illegal drugs, abuse of legal drugs or substances, anything else that's illegal, gambling, occult, and other types of activities that relate to or support that restricted group. We reserve to modify the list at any time. While we support the U.S. Constitution and the right to free speech, there are just some things you can say or do, which we simply request you do or say from someplace other than our servers. That's our right. If you have a question about the content you want to post, email us before signing up.
Similar to the reasoning we use on rejecting those topics, posting graphic imagery or explicit text in attempts to highlight the pitfalls of the above listed topics even in the vein of being not in favor of same will be scrutinized for appropriateness. Our test would be whether we would want our kids or our Moms to view the site. It's subjective, no doubt, but it helps bound it for you.
RULE #2) No sites intended or used for sending spam, mass anonymous un-qualified mailings, viruses, relayed mailings or receiving responses from any of same launched from separate email services/programs or other sites hosted anywhere. There are laws about this sort of thing. Plus folks just don't like it.
Obviously, if your business is not of the types listed in #1, and has 1000's of real customers you are doing business with & you need to communicate and conduct business with them, you aren't violating this 2nd rule.
