Outgoing Bulk / Junk / spam Mail Policy

Sending spam (Unsolicited Junk Mail sent to anonymous recipients) through Webhosting.net will not be tolerated. Webhosting.net has the right to terminate or refuse mail service to anyone abusing Webhosting.net services. Webhosting.net reserves the right to immediately discontinue service to anyone violating this rule. Webhosting.net defines "spaming" as the sending of bulk e-mails, or the sending of e-mail to users that have not explicitly asked to receive the senders message. Webhosting.net will not be held responsible if your domain name is blocked by internet service providers (ISPs) for sending spam/bulk e-mails. We reserve the right to suspend or cancel Webhosting.net accounts that send bulk or unwanted junk mail (spam). Hosting resellers should note that if an account is suspended for breaching Webhosting.net Terms or AUP and they re-enable that account, it will result in their reseller account being suspended.

Incoming Bulk / Junk (Spam) Mail Policy

Webhosting.net offers various services (add-ons) to help prevent incoming spam. These extra services may require an additional monthly fee and may have separate end-user agreements. Webhosting.net can not be responsible for filtering out unwanted/offensive content sent to your Webhosting.net account or that may fill your Webhosting.net account.

Webhosting.net Virus Policy

The Webhosting.net service provides virus protection against incoming e-mail viruses sent to your Webhosting.net addresses. All incoming messages to your Webhosting.net domain are scanned. It is our policy to delete infected messages prior to delivery to your Webhosting.net mailbox. Webhosting.net virus protection uses the latest technologies to help ensure your protection. Our server software (virus patterns) is updated every hour. Virus protection is an ongoing process and it's impossible to protect against 100% of the virus threats and we therefore cannot be held responsible for new viruses that are not detected by our scanning software. End-users are responsible for protecting their computers and ensuring they are virus-free. We recommend that each end-user run a local anti-virus software package on their PC for additional protection. Webhosting.net will not be held responsible if your domain name is blocked by internet service providers (ISPs) for sending virus-infected e-mails. Most viruses are transmitted by e-mail, but not all. If your e-mail software is connected to another e-mail service other than Webhosting.net, it is possible that virus-infected e-mail could be pulled into your Webhosting.net account. Webhosting.net cannot be held responsible for virus-infected e-mail originally sent to e-mail services outside of Webhosting.net.


It is the end-user's responsibility to keep his/her password confidential, and to change the password on a regular basis. Webhosting.net is not responsible for any data losses or security issues due to stolen passwords. Webhosting.net recommends that you use passwords that contain numbers and symbols in order to prevent unauthorized users from guessing commonly-used choices (i.e. '12345', 'password', etc.). Webhosting.net support does not have access to viewing existing passwords. For security reasons, Webhosting.net support can only reset passwords. Webhosting.net will not under any circumstances give a password to an enduser over the phone or via email.


Full backups of shared server are made weekly, and backups of new/changed data made nightly. No guarantees are made of any kind, either expressed or implied, as to the integrity of these backups. Backups are made for critical server restoration purposes only. It is the clients' responsibility to maintain local copies of their web content, email and database data. If loss of data occurs due to an error of Webhosting.net, Webhosting.net will attempt to recover the data at no charge to the client. Should you require data be restored, Webhosting.net will charge a minimum of $25/hour for restoration. Control panel settings cannot be restored. Only end-user webcontent and mail can be restored.

Failure to Pay

If you fail to pay your invoices on time your account will be in danger of getting suspended or terminated. Webhosting.net may temporarily deny or terminate service upon the failure of the subscriber to pay the charges when due. Such termination or denial will not relieve the subscriber of responsibility for the payment of all accrued charges and any collection fees.

Account Cancellation

A subscriber may cancel his account at any time online via his account control panel's "Support Center". If you want to avoid further payment, open the ticket before your due date. For example, if your due date is on the 17th you can create a ticket on the 16th, and then we will cancel your account without any further charges.

Upon cancellation, your Webhosting.net e-mail and contact data located on Webhosting.net's servers may no longer be available. It is the end-user's responsibility to retrieve this data prior to the request for cancellation of the service. Webhosting.net cannot guarantee retrieval of data once an account is cancelled.

"Unlimited" Usage Policies and Definitions

What "Unlimited" means. WebHosting.net does not set an arbitrary limit or cap on the amount of resources a single Subscriber can use. In good faith and subject to these Terms, WebHosting.net makes every commercially reasonable effort to provide its Subscribers with all the storage and bandwidth resources needed to power their web sites successfully, as long as the Subscriber's use of the service complies with these Terms. By not setting limits on key resources, we are able to provide simple, consistent pricing to our Subscribers as they grow their websites. As a result, a typical website may experience periods of great popularity and resulting increased storage without experiencing any associated increase in hosting charges.

What "Unlimited" DOES NOT mean. WebHosting.net employs complex mechanisms to protect its Subscribers and systems from abuse. WebHosting.net's offering of "unlimited" services is not intended to allow the actions of a single or few Subscribers to unfairly or adversely impact the experience of other Subscribers.?WebHosting.net's service is a shared hosting service, which means that multiple Subscriber web sites are hosted from the same server and share server resources. WebHosting.net's service is designed to meet the typical needs of small business and home business website Subscribers in the United States. It is NOT intended to support the sustained demand of large enterprises, internationally based businesses, or non-typical applications better suited to a dedicated server.?WebHosting.net will make every commercially reasonable effort to provide additional resources to Subscribers who are using their website(s) consistent with these Terms, including moving Subscribers to newer and bigger shared servers as necessary. However, in order to ensure a consistent and quality experience for all Subscribers, WebHosting.net does place automated safeguards to protect against any one site growing too quickly and adversely impacting the system until WebHosting.net can evaluate said sites resource needs.

Unlimited Hosting Space; excessive MySQL files. WebHosting.net does not set arbitrary limits on the amount of disk space a Subscriber can use for the Subscriber's website, nor does WebHosting.net charge additional fees based on an increased amount of storage used, provided the Subscriber's use of storage complies with these Terms. Please note, however, that the WebHosting.net service is designed to host websites. WebHosting.net does NOT provide unlimited space for online storage, backups, or archiving of electronic files, documents, log files, etc., and any such prohibited use of the Services will result in the termination of Subscriber's account, with or without notice. Accounts with a large number of files (inode count in excess of 200,000) can have an adverse affect on server performance. Similarly, accounts with an excessive number of MySQL/PostgreSQL tables (i.e., in excess of 1000 database tables) or of database size (i.e., in excess of 3GB total MySQL/PostgreSQL usage or 2GB MySQL/PostgreSQL usage in a single database) negatively affect the performance of the server. WebHosting.net may request that the number of files/inodes, database tables, or total database usage be reduced to ensure proper performance or may terminate the Subscriber's account, with or without notice.

Unlimited File Transfer. WebHosting.net does not set arbitrary limits on the amount of visitor traffic a web site can receive or on the amount of content a Subscriber can upload to his/her/its website in a given month, nor does WebHosting.net charge additional fees based on increased use of bandwidth, as long as the Subscriber's use of the Services complies with these Terms. In most cases, a Subscriber's web site will be able to support as much traffic as the Subscriber can legitimately acquire. However, WebHosting.net reserves the right to limit processor time, bandwidth, processes, or memory in cases where it is necessary to prevent negatively impacting other Subscribers.

Unlimited Domain Hosting. WebHosting.net does not set arbitrary limits on the number of domain names a Subscriber can associate with the Subscriber's web hosting account.
