Terms of Service

Agreeing to FeatureHosting.Net Acceptable Use Policy and Terms of Service is mandatory for Hosting signing up or using our services. Please make sure you read everything. The following rules apply to sites you host with FeatureHosting.Net

Acceptable Use Policy

Introduction
During the term of its agreement with FeatureHosting.Net, the customer must ensure that the use of any resource offered to the customer or owned or controlled by FeatureHosting.Net ("Service") conforms with FeatureHosting.Net's then current Acceptable Use Policy ("AUP"). FeatureHosting.Net may modify, without prior notice, the AUP as FeatureHosting.Net deems appropriate; such modified AUP is effective upon posting on FeatureHosting.Net's website.

Responsibility
You are responsible for your sites and all sites that you host to be in accordance with all rules on this page. Misuse by you may result in actions on your account, including removal from the host without a refund.

Inappropriate Use
The Service must not be used to publish, post, distribute or otherwise disseminate unlawful material or information including, but not limited to: threatening, harassing, defamatory, obscene, or fraudulent information and materials, or proprietary, copyrighted, or otherwise intellectually protected information and materials for which Customer does not have authorization or authority to possess or distribute. The Service must not be used to request unlawful services or materials. The Service must not be used for activities FeatureHosting.Net deems to impact its customers or its ability to deliver services to its customers. Such activities may include, but are not limited to:

Obscene Speech or Materials
The distribution of child pornography or any obscene, abusive, defamatory or threatening speech or material. You may not host any site containing adult oriented content, including nudity of any kind. Portal sites linking directly to adult oriented content are also not acceptable.

Intellectual Property Infringement
Any activity infringing on the intellectual property rights of others, including copyrights, trademarks, service marks, trade secrets, and patents.

Spamming

Accounts caught sending unsolicited, as defined by FeatureHosting, Inc.*, email or usenet postings, either through our servers or to promote a web site on our servers will be terminated immediately, will not qualify for a refund and will be charged $50 per complaint filed. Accounts terminated for sending unsolicited email or usenet posts give up all rights to any content, files, backups and technical support associated with this and ALL accounts hosted on any and all FeatureHosting, Inc. server and network. You may not create email forwards which forward to an email address not accessible by you, unless the recipient has specifically consented for you to do so.

FeatureHosting, Inc. reserves the right to investigate accounts accused of sending unsolicited emails, or usenet postings, in any way deemed necessary. This includes suspending the accused account, during the pending investigation.

Sites promoting, advertising or otherwise making available tools, information and/or software for the purpose of sending unsolicited email or usenet postings will be shut down without notice. We reserve the right to cancel all hosting accounts, of anyone having an account suspended for sending spam. We will make available, upon request, the source of the complaints. We will NOT make available the actual complaint, if it means giving out individual contact information of the person filing the complaint. WE STRONGLY SUGGEST THAT YOU AVOID USING THIRD PARTY MAILING LISTS - EVEN IF THEY ARE GUARANTEED TO BE CLEAN!!!

Although we have a ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY on unsolicited email/spam, we are not unreasonable. Since August 2004, we have shut down an extremely small percentage of accounts for sending Unsolicited Email. However, we can and will enforce our Terms of Service.

*Unsolicited is defined, by FeatureHosting, Inc. as: E-mail sent to recipients who have not asked to be contacted by you or Usenet postings (that are cross-posted to more than three newsgroups and/or posted in newsgroups where this is against that groups FAQ or charter), for the sole purpose of promoting a website or commercial business on our servers.

Maintaining an Open Email Relay
Allowing email to be sent through Customer's system by a third party (i.e. neither to nor from Customer or Customer's accounts).

Fraud
Using a false identity; using pyramid/ponzi scheme; storage or transmission of any intentionally incorrect data or packet.

Virus, Worm, or Trojan horse program distribution
The deliberate transmission of computer viruses, worms or trojan software.

Denial of Service
Using any technique to intentionally degrade or disable the delivery of any legitimate data.

Glutting of servers
Oversized storage of any files that would be unreasonably large (ie. making a zip file filled with text files just to pad the size). Again, your webspace is not for data back up. It is only for hosting real sites.

Unauthorized Access
Attempting to gain unauthorized entry to any site or network, or any network or host scanning, probing, monitoring or other information gathering associated with such activity; using the Service to guess passwords.

Applications
Customer may not run any program or script on the server that runs constantly or 'listens' on ports unless provided in the control panel. This includes applications associated with chat services.

Public Forums
Inappropriate postings to newsgroups, chat rooms, electronic bulletin boards and any other public forum on, or using, the Service.

Customer Responsibilities

Bulk Email
Customers sending bulk email must provide recipients with an easy and effective mechanism for removal from bulk email list. Customer must include the source of the addressee's address in each bulk email message.

CPU Usage
Sites may not use extreme unwarranted CPU usage. This includes usage of "heavy" scripts or Flash/shockwave files. By heavy we mean oversized without cause, to the point where most users would be unable to view them in a reasonable amount of time. No single site may consume 30% of CPU usage for a sustained period of time.

Service Resale
Customer may not resell the Service or any portion of the Service unless under a Reseller plan.

Password Protection
Customer is responsible for protecting passwords and for any authorized or unauthorized use.

Music Files
Customer may not with out permission have sound/video files in any format (MP3, ASX, ASF, RA, RAM , QTV) due to the high rate of illegal transfer of copywritten material.

Content Protection
Customer agrees to provide appropriate protection to prevent minors (persons under 18 years of age) from accessing any unsuitable material that Customer publishes via any Service.

Content Ownership
Customer is responsible for all content or information residing on, or obtained, or transmitted via, the Service, regardless of whether such use is by Customer.

File repository /Dump Sites
Customer may not use disk space as a file repository, or dump site. This includes but is not limited too; warez, serialz, sound files, applications, zip files. This includes using the space in order to store content used on other sites (remote linking) . Examples of this would be using the web space to store images for auction descriptions, flash or any other files used on another site but stored on our server.

Free Email / Hosting Sites
We do not permit the free giving of POP email accounts or the issuing of free hosting. This includes near free (1 penny per year for instance).

Facilitating AUP Violation
Customer activity that facilitates the violation of this AUP by any party constitutes a violation of this AUP by Customer.
