PERMITTED & ACCEPTABLE USE

Storage and Bandwidth Usage.

The storage and bandwidth space allotted to your account is shared with other customers. You are allowed to host the number of websites allotted by your plan. This Shared hosting space may only be used for web files, active email and content of User Websites. Shared hosting space may not be used for storage (whether of media, emails, or other data), including, as offsite storage of electronic files, email or FTP hosts. Core Virtual Hosting expressly reserves the right to review every shared account for excessive usage of CPU, disk space and other resources that may be caused by a violation of this Agreement or the Acceptable Use Policy. Core Virtual Hosting may, in our sole discretion, terminate access to the Services, apply additional fees, or remove or delete User Content for those accounts that are found to be in violation of Core Virtual Hosting’s terms and conditions.

Traffic and/or Storage Core Virtual Hosting’s hosting packages are allotted a set amount of bandwidth and disk storage. Should the Customers web site go beyond these limits, an additional monthly charge will be levied based on our monthly data transfer and/or disk storage rate. The intention of Core Virtual Hosting is to provide a large space to serve web documents, not an off-site storage area for electronic files. All (95%) of your web pages (html) must be ‘linked’ with files (.GIF, .JPEG, etc.) stored on Core Virtual Hosting’s servers. Web sites that are found to contain either/or no html documents, a large number of unlinked files are subject to warning, suspension or cancellation at the discretion of Core Virtual Hosting management. Any Customer who exceeds Core Virtual Hosting’s Package limits in abusing either space/site transfer will be notified and given five (5) days to remedy the problem. If the problem is not resolved within the allotted five (5) day period, the client will be billed for over usage or upgraded to a larger package, whichever is cheaper.
