Zero Tolerance Adult Content Policy

Cloudixie has a zero-tolerance policy in effect for adult content. We do not allow any content considered “adult material” on our servers. This includes any type of media that may contain nudity, partial nudity, or anything else of adult nature determined in Cloudixie’s sole discretion. Violators of this policy will be immediately terminated without a refund.

Child Pornography Prohibited

Content that is potentially harmful to minors, as determined in Cloudixie’s sole discretion, is strictly forbidden, including but not limited to, child pornography or content perceived to be child pornography. Any website found to host child pornography or linking to child pornography will be suspended immediately without notice.

Other Prohibited Content

We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone. Any material that, in our judgment, is obscene, threatening, illegal, or violates our Terms of Service or this Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) in any manner may be removed from our servers (or otherwise disabled), with or without notice.

Using a shared account as a backup/storage device.

You may not use a shared hosting account as a backup/storage device with the exception of one cPanel backup of the same account. Please do not take backups of your backups.

Resource Usage

You may not:

  • Use twenty-five percent (25%) or more of our system resources for longer than ninety (90) seconds at a time. Activities that could cause this excessive use, include but are not limited to CGI scripts, FTP, PHP, HTTP, etc.
  • Run stand-alone, unattended server-side processes at any point in time on the server. This includes any and all daemons, such as IRCD.
  • Run any type of web spider or indexer (including Google Cash / AdSpy) on shared servers.
  • Run any software that interfaces with an IRC (Internet Relay Chat) network.
  • 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.
  • Participate in any file-sharing/peer-to-peer activities
  • Run any gaming servers such as Minecraft, Counter-Strike, Half-Life, Battlefield1942, etc.
  • Run cron entries with intervals of less than fifteen (15) minutes.
  • Run any MySQL queries longer than fifteen (15) seconds. MySQL tables should be indexed appropriately.
  • Include the local file rather than the URL when using PHP, include functions for including a local file. Instead of including “http://yourdomain.com/include.php”), use “include.php”.
  • Force HTML to handle server-side code (like PHP and SHTML) to help reduce usage.

Inodes

The use of more than two hundred and fifty thousand (250,000) inodes on any shared account may result in a warning, and if no action is taken to reduce the excessive use of inodes, your account may be suspended. If an account exceeds one hundred thousand (100,000) inodes it will be automatically removed from our backup system to avoid over-usage, however, databases will still be backed up as a courtesy in our sole discretion. Every file (i.e. a webpage, image file, email, etc.) on your account uses up one (1) inode.

User 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 is typically 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 an acceptable amount of inodes. 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”.

Our Rights

Cloudixie reserves the right at all times to investigate any actual, suspected or alleged violations of this AUP. You shall reasonably cooperate with Cloudixie in investigating and correcting any actual or alleged breach of this AUP by yourself of any User. Cloudixie further reserves the right to cooperate with legal authorities and third parties in investigating any alleged violations of this AUP, including disclosing the identity of any User that Cloudixie believes is responsible for such violation.

Nothing in this AUP shall limit Cloudixie’s rights and remedies at law or in equity that may be available.
