2. Availability of Services
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Only-Hosting shall attempt to provide the services for twenty-four (24) hours per day, seven (7) days per week throughout the term of this agreement. You agree that from time to time the services may be inaccessible or inoperable for any reason, including, without limitation:
ii.periodic maintenance procedures or repairs that Only-Hosting may undertake from time to time; or
iii.causes beyond the control of Only-Hosting or that are not reasonably foreseeable by Only-Hosting, including, without limitation, interruption or failure of telecommunication or digital transmission links, hostile network attacks network congestion or other failures.
You agree Only-Hosting.net has no control of availability of the services on a continuous or uninterrupted basis.
You further agree that as a normal course of its business, it may be necessary for Only-Hosting to migrate its servers. As a result, even though you may have a dedicated IP, you may be assigned a different IP number. Only-Hosting does not warrant that you will be able to consistently maintain your given IP number.
3. Service Availability Guarantee
Only-Hosting.net offers a service uptime guarantee for the Services of 99.999% (“Service Uptime”) of available time. If Only-Hosting fails to maintain this level of service availability, You may contact Only-Hosting and request a credit of 5% of your monthly hosting fee from Only-Hosting for that month. The credit may be used only for the purchase of further products and services from Only-Hosting.net, and is exclusive of any applicable taxes. The credit does not apply to service interruptions caused by:
i. Periodic scheduled maintenance or repairs Only-Hosting may undertake from time to time;
ii. Errors caused by you from custom scripting or coding;
iii. Outages that do not affect the appearance of the web site but merely affect access to the web site such as FTP and email;
iv. Causes beyond the control of Only-Hosting or that are not reasonably foreseeable by Only-Hosting.net; and
v. Outages related to the reliability of certain programming environments
Total Service Uptime shall be solely determined by Only-Hosting and shall be calculated on a monthly basis.
4. Server Resources
Any Web site that uses a high amount of server resources (such as, but not limited to, CPU time, memory usage, and network resources) will be given the option to either pay additional fees (which will depend on the resources required), reduce the resources used to an acceptable level, or upgrade its service to a Dedicated Server plan. Only-Hosting will be the sole arbiter of what is considered to be a high server usage level. All Web Hosting and Ecommerce accounts come with a limit of 5,000 files per account. Each block of 5,000 files after the initial 5,000 will incur an additional charge of US$9.95/month. Any Web Hosting and Ecommerce account deemed to be adversely affecting server performance or network integrity will be shut down without prior notice.
5. Resource Usage
User may not:
i. Use 25% or more of system resources for longer than 90 seconds. There are numerous activities that could cause such problems; these include: CGI scripts, FTP, PHP, HTTP, etc.
ii. Run stand-alone, unattended server-side processes at any point in time on the server. This includes any and all daemons, such as IRCD.
iii. Run any type of web spider or indexer (including Google Cash / AdSpy) on shared servers.
iv. Run any software that interfaces with an IRC (Internet Relay Chat) network.
v. Run any bit torrent application, tracker, or client. You may link to legal torrents off-site, but may not host or store them on our shared servers.
vi. Participate in any file-sharing/peer-to-peer activities
vii. Run any gaming servers such as counter-strike, half-life, battlefield1942, etc
viii. Run cron entries with intervals of less than 15 minutes.
Users are strongly recommended to:
When using PHP include functions for including a local file, include the local file rather than the URL. Instead of include(“http://yourdomain.com/include.php”) use include(“include.php”)
To help reduce usage, do not force html to handle server-side code (like php and shtml).
Only use https protocol when necessary; encrypting and decrypting communications is noticeably more CPU-intensive than unencrypted communications.
The use of more than 250,000 inodes on any shared account may potentially result in a warning first, and if no action is taken future suspension. Accounts found to be exceeding the 100,000 inode limit will automatically be removed from our backup system to avoid over-usage, however databases will still be backed up. Every file (a webpage, image file, email, etc) on your account uses up 1 inode.
Sites that slightly exceed our inode limits are unlikely to be suspended; however, accounts that constantly create and delete large numbers of files on a regular basis, have hundreds of thousands of files, or cause file system damage may be flagged for review and/or suspension. The primary cause of excessive inodes seems to be due to users leaving their catchall address enabled, but never checking their primary account mailbox. Over time, tens of thousands of messages (or more) build up, eventually pushing the account past our inode limit. To disable your default mailbox, login to cPanel and choose “Mail”, then “Default Address”, “Set Default Address”, and then type in: :fail: No such user here.
It is your responsibility to ensure that scripts/programs installed under your account are secure and permissions of directories are set properly, regardless of installation method. When at all possible, set permissions on most directories to 755 or as restrictive as possible. Users are ultimately responsible for all actions taken under their account. This includes the compromise of credentials such as user name and password. It is required that you use a secure password. If a weak password is used, your account may be suspended until you agree to use a more secure password. Audits may be done to prevent weak passwords from being used. If an audit is performed, and your password is found to be weak, we will notify you and allow time for you to change/update your password.
7. Zero Tolerance Spam Policy
We take a zero tolerance stance against sending of unsolicited e-mail, bulk emailing, and spam. “Safe lists” and purchased lists will be treated as spam. Any user who sends out spam will have their account terminated with or without notice.
Sites advertised via SPAM (Spamvertised) may not be hosted on our servers. This provision includes, but is not limited to SPAM sent via fax, email, instant messaging, or usenet/newsgroups. No organization or entity listed in the SpamHaus may be hosted on our servers. Any account which results in our IP space being blacklisted will be immediately suspended and/or terminated.
Unauthorized use of the Only-Hosting services in connection with the transmission of unsolicited bulk email (SPAM), including the transmission of counterfeit e-mail, may result in civil and criminal penalties against the sender, including those provided by the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (18 U.S.C. § 1030 et seq.) Only-Hosting’s response to a first spamming offense is to either terminate the account immediately or advise and educate the Customer through an e-mail warning and/or phone call, in COnly-Hosting’s sole discretion. A minimum $500 (Five Hundred U.S. Dollars) per hour spam handling fee will be charged to customer’s account for all valid complaints, as determined by the Only-Hosting Abuse Team plus a $10.00 per email sent penalty.
Only-Hosting reserves the right to require changes or disable as necessary any web site, account, database, or other component that does not comply with its established policies, or to make any such modifications in an emergency at its sole discretion.
Only-Hosting reserves the right to charge the holder of the account used to send any unsolicited e-mail a clean up fee or any charges incurred for blacklist removal. This cost of the clean up fee is entirely at the discretion of Only-Hosting.net
Website Forms (formmail) must utilize smtp auth to send information as port 127.0.0.1 is blocked.
8. Technical Support
Only-Hosting.net will provide technical support services via telephone, electronic mail (e-mail) and facsimile to assist in verifying the account features of Only-Hosting’s intended functionality of the customer’s server and hosting Service.
The account features include various products produced by third party vendors. The Technical Support staff can assist with the setup and configuration of the server and third party products; however, the usability, custom configurations, coding and troubleshooting fall under the support offerings of the third party vendor so technical support will be unable to assist with the aforementioned offerings.
Technical Support does not serve as a consultant to correct and rewrite programming code and scripting-related issues. Only, Only-Hosting.net created Services and non-Customer configured Services will be supported to this extent. No emails from Only-Hosting.net, including Technical support email, may be resent, distributed or posted on any media accessible to the public (including, but not limited to, any Internet site or bulletin board) by Customer, without Only-Hosting’s prior written consent. Technical Support shall consist only of the consulting services set forth above, and in no event shall it include any other support functions or Services, including, but not limited to, maintenance or repair of customer’s hardware or custom configurations to the server.
Technical Support will be provided only to either Customer or customer’s technical or administrative contact. If customer requires technical assistance beyond the conditions set forth above and Only-Hosting determines that it has the technical resources for assistance, customer shall be charged at Only-Hosting’s standard hourly rate ($150.00 / Hour). The hourly rate will be applied to services not designated as technical support, as defined above, or for any technical support provided to someone other than customer or customer’s technical or administrative contact. Prior to requesting support services from Only-Hosting, customer or customer’s technical contact agrees to ask Only-Hosting’s technical support personnel if the requested support services qualify as technical support.
Technical Support hours are 24 hours each day, except on nationally observed holidays, Christmas Eve, during departmental meetings, or when no, or limited support hours may be provided, of which Customer will be notified in advance. Technical Support hours are subject to change.

Only-Hosting.net shall pass through to Customer any warranties from the manufacturers of equipment purchased through Only-Hosting and installed at customer’s premises. Only-Hosting shall have no obligation to repair or maintain any equipment at customer’s premises, and customer shall be responsible for seeking warranty and other services directly from the manufacturer.

A suspended account will only be reinstated when the account is paid in full including a $150 reinstatement fee. If the suspended account has not been paid in full including the reinstatement fee within 7 calendar days, all website data, databases, email and any software or scripts will be deleted.

No guarantees are made if any or all the deleted content will work or is still available in full, so the client assumes all risk.
Unauthorized use of the Only-Hosting.net Services in connection with the transmission of unsolicited bulk email (SPAM), including the transmission of counterfeit email, may result in civil and criminal penalties against the sender, including those provided by the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (18 U.S.C. § 1030 et seq.)
