Host Anything: Acceptable Use Policy and Service Guidelines

Host Anything provides web hosting to many clients, and we have a responsibility to protect each client and to provide the best services available. The following guidelines were designed to ensure these obligations are met.

Content:

All services provided by Host Anything may be used for lawful purposes only. Transmission, storage, or presentation of any information, data or material in violation of any United States, International or other countries, Federal, State or City law is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to: copyrighted material, material we judge to be threatening or obscene or material protected by trade secret and other statute, and invasion of privacy. The subscriber agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Host Anything from any claims resulting from the use of the service which damages the subscriber or any other party.

Also prohibited are sites that promote any illegal activity or present content that may be damaging to Host Anything servers or any other server on the Internet. Links to such materials are also prohibited.

Examples of unacceptable content or links:

Pirated software
Hacker programs or archives
Warez sites
Racist or 'Hate' related material
Information related to the misuse of creditcards, phones, computers.

Host Anything will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision.

It is implied that subscribers have a basic knowledge of the Internet and it's inherent protocols. Host Anything denies any responsibilities for any damages arising as a consequence of a lack of knowledge in the maintenance and condition of a subscriber's account or website. Host Anything does however accept a responsibility to provide support to it's subscriber's and all reasonable efforts will be made to assist subscribers in the working maintenance of their account. This condition also relates to the overuse of bandwidth for a subscriber's account. In the unlikely event of an overuse of bandwidth the subscriber agrees to discuss options regarding the rectification of this issue. Unlike many hosting companies we do not place an 'unlimited' amount of bandwidth anywhere on our site only to place a capped limit within these terms and conditions. All accounts are clearly marked on the Plans page with their basic bandwidth (or data transfer) allocation. Unlimited bandwidth is a myth - we choose not to be dishonest about it. Bandwidth overuse will not directly result in suspension or closure of an account as long as a resolution can be found before your next monthly billing period.

Commercial Advertising - E-mail:

Spamming, or the sending of unsolicited e-mail, from an Host Anything server or using an e-mail address or domain that is maintained on an Host Anything machine as reference is STRICTLY prohibited. In addition the uploading and/or use of scripts designed for the use of spamming are forbidden and will constitute a breach of this AUP. Host Anything will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision. Accounts found in violation of this condition will have their account closed with no refund at all for any fee paid to Host Anything. Our servers have in place detection software that will recognize known scripts used in the mass unsolicited e-mailing (spamming) of other accounts - you will be caught. Such e-mail received by Host Anything is always forwarded to the proper authorities.

Misuse of System Resources:

Any attempt to knowingly undermine or cause harm to a server, or customer, of Host Anything is strictly prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to: using programs that consume excessive CPU time (generally more than 20% for 5 minutes or longer); allowing the use of mail services, mail forwarding capabilities, or autoresponders other than for the customer's own account; resale of disk space within your account, use of servers for excessive backup of files unrelated to the web site of the account; or resale of remote access to CGI scripts installed on our servers.

Operation of IRC servers or IRC bots such as Egg Drop on our servers will result in an immediate suspension of service, with no refund for any fee paid to Host Anything. No shell accounts are provided by Host Anything

Availability of Service:

Host Anything makes no warranties or representations of any kind, whether expressed or implied for the service it is providing. Host Anything also disclaims any warranty of merchant-ability or fitness for a particular purpose and will not be responsible for any damages that may be suffered by the subscriber, including loss of data resulting from delays, non-deliveries or service interruptions by any cause or errors or omissions of the subscriber. Use of any information obtained by way of Host Anything is at the subscriber's own risk, and Host Anything specifically denies any responsibility for the accuracy or quality of information obtained through its services. Connection speed represents the speed of a connection to and do not represent guarantees of available end to end bandwidth. Host Anything expressly limits its damages to the subscriber for any non-accessibility time or other down time to the pro-rata monthly charge during the system unavailability. Currently our servers operate at above 99% uptime.

Cancellation:

Cancellation can be made via our contact page. Although no notice is required, and there is no cancellation fee, all fees paid for service prior to the notice of cancellation are nonrefundable. If cancellation is made within the first 30 days of service all hosting fees will be refunded. This does not include fees for domain registration, and is dependent upon adherence to the conditions of this agreement.

Host Anything will accept no liability for damage caused through the closure of an account either due to client request, or misuse of accounts. Host Anything will not be held responsible for the loss of data due to the closure of a subscriber's account.

Suspension:

Activity which results in a suspension or deactivation of an account will result in a forfeiture of fees paid. Complaints made regarding abuses of an account may be grounds for suspension though will be investigated for validity. While a fair hearing will be given to most cases Host Anything is the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a valid reason for account closure.

Refusal of Service:

All accounts within Host Anything service must adhere to the above policies. Please direct any reports of violations of the above policies to Host Anything. Failure to follow the terms or conditions may be grounds for immediate account deactivation. We enforce these terms and conditions according to the greater good of the internet community at large, and have written them accordingly
