Fair Usage Guideline
________ Last Revision:
HostSEO Networks offers hosting packages bundled with limited or unlimited
resources like disk space and/or other resources, such as data transfer,
email accounts, databases etc. The use of HostSEO’s products and services
are governed by a Fair Use Policy, stated here, which covers the fair use of
bandwidth and other resources on shared and reseller hosting plans, where
there is an indication of “Unmetered/Unlimited” data transfer or, storage
capacity. – [R/18-12-2016]
The term “Unlimited” or, “Unmetered”
HostSEO.com helps you to create large websites without worrying about
ceiling or in other words, the upper limit. It provides for Unlimited space
usages and bandwidth that allows you to add any amount of content to the
website. People are thinking that hard disk size limited as 6TB, 10TB etc.
But how can HostSEO gives unlimited webspace? The actual concept is we do
not give unlimited hard disk space, we are giving unlimited usages of web
space. It means that if u will use 100 GB space then we will add more hard
disk to our server or we will add new server in our network. Like that we
will fulfill your unlimited resource usages.
When you use the service
provided by HostSEO, the visitors of your website also stand to benefit from
it. They are able to view unlimited content and page on your website. The
server allows for unlimited data transfer as well. You can add more content
every month and enjoy unlimited disk space and data transfer through the Our
It has been noticed that people who make use of HostSEO.com
are able to gain to unlimited disk space and bandwidth. But this is subject
to the appropriate usage of the package offered. However, HostSEO has
certain constraints related to the type of material that may be added to the
website. The server does not allow you to upload unnecessary pirated
software, unnecessary audio or video files. But audio / video streaming is
supported. File sharing with copyrighted file is supported. For example, a
software developer can release his software with us, a DJ can publish his
album with us without any issue, they are (or, like them) most welcome to
Following (including but not limited to), is
1. Use of account as massive file storage, or in other words, as a space for

2. Use of account as
large backup storage.
3. Storage of mass amount of file archives
(such as zip,rar,gzip,7z etc), video files, audio files, documents, log

Customer may only use HostSEO Web Hosting’s Server for lawful purpose.
Transmission of any material in violation of any Country, Federal, State or
Local regulation is prohibited. To this effect, child pornography is
strictly prohibited as well as housing any copyrighted information (to which
the customer does not hold the copyright or an appropriate license) on
HostSEO Web Hosting’s Server. Also, using HostSEO’s servers or network to
conspire to commit or support the commission of illegal activities is
forbidden as well. Illegal contents including, but not limited to pirated
software, music, films, applications or other media stored in any file
formats or extension. Having high-limit or unlimited access to resources
does not mean, that you can use your account in a such a way that it
negatively affects the server operation. HostSEO reserves the right to limit
users to a lower resource limit to preserve the effectiveness of the service
for all users.
Any script/process/etc that adversely affects the ability of any other
customer to satisfactorily use their provided services is forbidden. This
includes, but is not limited to, CPU-intensive CGI/PHP scripts and websites
for which the scale of traffic has exceeded the acceptable limits of a
shared/reseller hosting environment. We only accept these only our Dedicated
Hosting environment (such as VM/VPS/Dedicated Server).
What files can I store on the web-server?
As long as your files tie directly into your website, are legal under
applicable laws, and are linked to and displayed on your website, then you
can store them on your account. Where possible issues arise is when one user
attempts to offload all of their storage needs onto the web-server. It’s
important to realize that a web-server, and our hosting network is optimized
to handle website related files. The service is not a mass file storage one
like Google Drive, Dropbox etc.
For instance if you have a folder
with 25GB worth of pictures you’ve taken with your camera over the years.
simply uploading these thousands upon thousands of images to your
/public_ftp directory for storage is not related to your website. At that
point you’d simply be utilizing the web-server as a file repository.
Why don’t I want to store everything on the web-server?
One important factor why you don’t want to cluter up your web-hosting
account with un-related files is that our automatic remote backup service is
only free on accounts under 10GB in size for Silver and Gold Cloud account.
The automatic backup is free up to 30 GB for Business Cloud accounts.
As a shared-hosting customer you share the total web-server resources
such as disk space with other customers. As such if everyone decided to
upload all of their home photos to the web-server, things could quickly fill
up, and you might not have room for store logos, or actual website related
Also last but not least, there are storage services
available online where the specific purpose of those networks are to store
mass volumes of backup data. Offloading your online storage needs to these
types of services is generally easier to manage and keep track of than
managing your files over FTP.
Hey, that doesn’t sound
very “Unlimited” to me!
Actually, for you, my dear Legitimate Website Owner, it is unlimited.
This whole page is just to announce to the <.1% of people who want to
try and run free porn affiliate sites or anime video trading forums or host
pirated rips of The Dark Knight on our servers that we’re not having any.
But our pledge to you is to do our best to always keep your website,
with the content you created.
