Traffic/Hits & Server Resource Usage:
Your account is limited to the alotted bandwidth/data transfer included with your selected package. To maintain the integrity of our service the following traffic/usage limitations apply.
* Sites with banners, graphics or cgi's running from their domain being used on other domains.
* Sites with immense graphic archives or galleries.
* Sites offering immense download archives, such as .zip, .tar, .ra and .GZ.
* Sites running large chat room gatherings.
* Sites using more than 20% of system resources
If you go above your limits, your account may be suspended, or required to be upgraded, or, VisionHost may move your site to a different server, to reduce the load on the server you are currently residing... VisionHost will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of usage limitations. Bandwidth/data transfer will go unmonitored until you reach your account limit, then normal over-usage data transfer costs will apply. At any time VisionHost may move your site to a different server, to reduce the load on the server you are currently residing...
VisionHost currently does not allow IRC or IRC bots to be operated on our servers.
Multiple telnet and ftp sessions are allowed, on a single hosting account.
VisionHost may disconnect any idle connection to the network.
Average timeouts are:
FTP - 300 seconds
Telnet - 2 hours
Commercial Advertising - Email:
Spamming, or the sending of unsolicited email, from a VisionHost server or using an email address that is maintained on a VisionHost machine is STRICTLY prohibited. For general reference, we consider spam any email that is sent to more than 10 people at a time that did not ask for it to be sent to them.
VisionHost will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision. Opt-In email is acceptable, as long as Opt-Out/Removal request are fully honored. Please make an effort to limit outgoing mail on your account to no more than 1000 pieces per DAY and no more than 20 pieces per minute. Many times we have seen sites push over 1000 emails in one hit, this causes extreme server loads and prevents other people from accessing server services. Large mailings are preferred to be sent from the hours of 12AM - 8AM EST. Sites with large mailing databases, need to be placed on dedicated server or VPS platform.
Any attempts to undermine or cause harm to a VisionHost server or customer of VisionHost is strictly prohibited. VisionHost will pursue legal action to the fullest extent for all abuse of the VisionHost Network.
If any terms or conditions are failed to be followed it will result in grounds for account suspension or de-activation. VisionHost reserves the right to remove any account without prior notice. If VisionHost deactivates your account(s) for violating policy, your will forfeit your rights to a refund...and none will be given. No refunds for advance payments, on de-activated accounts. Normal policy is a warning first, and account de-activation the second offense. Serious offenses may cause immediate de-activation.
