Server Abuse

Any attempt to undermine or cause harm to a server, or customer, of 4eSolution is strictly prohibited.

Unauthorized use of other people's accounts or computers 4eSolution will strongly react to any use or attempted use of an Internet account or computer without the owner's authorization. Such attempts include "Internet scamming" (tricking other people into releasing their passwords), password robbery, security hole scanning etc.

Any unauthorized use of accounts or computers by a 4eSolution customer, whether or not the attacked account or computer belongs to 4eSolution, will result in action against the attacker. Possible actions include warnings, account suspension or cancellation, and civil or criminal legal action, depending on the seriousness of the attack.

IMPORTANT NOTE - 4eSolution has the right to discontinue service, or deny access to anyone who violates our Policies or the terms and conditions shown below WITHOUT WARNING OR PRIOR NOTICE. No refunds of fees paid will be made if account termination is due to violation of the terms outlined below.

Customers may not run IRC, bots or clients on shared servers. Unacceptable uses also include, but are NOT limited to: Bulk emailing, unsolicited emailings, newsgroup spamming, pornographic content, illegal content, copyright infringement, trademark infringement, warez, cracks, software serial numbers, and/or anything else determined by 4eSolution to be unacceptable use of 4eSolution's services including abuse of server resources.

Shared hosting accounts may be terminated that include the following content or which have links to the following content:
  • Providing material that is grossly offensive to the Web community including blatant expressions of bigotry, racism, hatred, or profanity
  • Promoting or providing instructional information about illegal activities, or promoting physical harm or injury against any group or individual
  • Displaying material containing obscene nudity or pornographic material (not applicable to managed dedicated servers)
  • Displaying material that exploits children under 18 years of age
  • Acts of copyright infringement including offering pirated computer programs or links to such programs, information used to circumvent manufacturer-installed copy-protect devices, including serial or registration numbers for software programs, or any type of cracker utilities

Abuse of Unlimited Traffic

4eSolution's customers are privileged to be offered unlimited traffic for their web sites. The intention of 4eSolution is to provide a large space to serve web documents, not an off site storage area for electronic files. All (90%) of your web pages (html) must be 'linked' with files (.GIF, .JPEG, etc.) stored on 4eSolution's server. Web sites that are found to contain either/or no html documents, a large number of unlinked files are subject to warning, suspension or cancellation at the discretion of 4eSolution management. Any customer who violates 4eSolution's Policies in abusing either space/site transfer will be notified and given 2 days to remedy the problem. If the problem is not resolved within the allotted period, the client will be billed for the overages.

To maintain the integrity of our shared hosting service the following limitations apply:

Sites with banners, graphics or cgi scripts running from their domain used on other domains. Sites with picture galleries (This is any site where 50% of the files transferred is graphics) Sites offering download files or archives. (This is any site where 50% or more of there monthly traffic is from file downloads). Sites using more than 30% of system resources for longer than 60 seconds. Sites running multimedia files (QuickTime, Real Audio, Real Video, MP3).

For those that do not qualify for the unlimited service, traffic will go unmonitored until you reach 20 GB per month. Thereafter, normal data transfer cost of $20.00/1GB/month will be billed to your account. If you want to pre-pay for bandwidth overages, you will be billed $10.00/1GB/month.

You will receive a notice on Tuesday morning detailing your bandwidth usage.

You will have 7 days to visit 4eSolution.com to pay for your overages. If you do not pay for your overages your site will be disabled within 7 days of your first notice. This does not apply to co-location clients. Co-location clients will be billed for the overages based on switch reports. Co-location clients must pay for the overages IMMEDIATELY once billing or 4eSolution has the sole decision to deactivate any and all servers.

4eSolution will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision.

Unsolicited Email (Spam)

Unsolicited commercial advertisements (spam) are not allowed in e-mail, and will likely result in account cancellation.

4eSolution takes a zero-tolerance approach to spam originating from our servers or for spam advertising of domains hosted on our servers.

The following activities are not allowed:
  • Unsolicited bulk or commercial messages ("spam"). This includes, but is not limited to, bulk mailing of commercial advertising, informational announcements, charity requests, petitions for signatures, and political or religious tracts. Such messages may only be sent to those who have explicitly requested it from your domain.
  • Forging, altering or removing electronic mail headers is prohibited. Any domain sending stealth spam will be terminated without warning and without refund.
  • Sending numerous copies of the same or substantially similar message with the intent to disrupt a server or account ("mail bombing").
  • Spamming Newsgroups: Commercial advertisements are unwelcome in most Usenet discussion groups and on most e-mail mailing lists. Inappropriate posting may result in account cancellation. See the newsgroup or mailing list's charter for whether advertising is allowed or not. "Spamming," or sending a message to many different off-topic newsgroups, is particularly unethical and will be treated as such.
  • Mail may not be used to harass or intimidate others. Harassment, whether through language, frequency of messages, or size of messages, is prohibited. Sending a single unwelcome message may be considered harassment. If a recipient asks to stop receiving e-mail, you must not send that person any further messages.

Note: If you use the services of another provider to promote a web site hosted by or through 4eSolution (spamvertising), then the provisions of the above Policy shall apply as if the spam were sent through our servers.

99.9% Uptime Guarantee

(1.) Coverage
This 99.9% uptime guarantee applies to any 4eSolution client in good financial standing with 4eSolution at the time of a service outage.

(2.) Service Level Agreement & Specifications
4eSolution endeavors to have the content of your web site available for http access by any party in the world 99.9% of the time. Network downtime (unavailability) is defined as 100% packet loss from 4eSolution to its backbone providers. Downtime is measured past 10 minutes after notification of network failure via 4eSolution's online ticketing system. If the ticketing system itself is unreachable, the ticket must be started by calling the 4eSolution NOC. 4eSolution's administrators will determine the end of the downtime by a traceroute to the customer's machine from outside the 4eSolution network.

(3.) Credits
a. Shared Hosting - In the event that your web site is not available for more than 99.9%, 4eSolution will credit the following month's service fee as follows. For any shared hosting client, such credit shall be retroactive and shall be as calculated below and as measured 24 hours a day in a calendar month, with the maximum credit not to exceed fifty (50) percent of the monthly service charge for the affected month.

Monthly Uptime Credit
95% to 99.8% 10%
90% to 94.9% 20%
89.9% or below 50%

b. Managed Dedicated Servers - For managed dedicated server customers if the uptime is between 98.9% and 99.9% for any particular month the credit shall be retroactive and equivalent to the difference between the guaranteed level of availability of the customer's services during the month and the calculated actual level of availability of the customer's services, multiplied by the actual charges incurred by the customer for the services during that month period. In addition, for managed dedicated server, customers may be entitled to additional credits as calculated below and as measured 24-hours a day in a calendar month, with the maximum credit not to exceed twenty-five percent (25%) of the monthly service charge for the affected month.

Minutes of continuous downtime Credit
60 10%
5+ 60 minute intervals 25%

In order for you to receive a credit on your account, you must request such credit within seven (7) days after you experienced the down time. You must request credit by sending an electronic mail message to refunds. For security, the body of this message must contain your account number, the dates and times of the unavailability of your website, and such other customer identification requested by 4eSolution. Credits will usually be applied within sixty (60) days of your credit request. Credit to your account shall be your sole and exclusive remedy in the event of an outage.

(4.) Restrictions
Credits shall not be provided to you in the event that you have any outage resulting from (1.) scheduled maintenance as posted from time to time at 4eSolution, (2.) your behavior or the performance or failure of your equipment, facilities or applications, or (3.) circumstances beyond 4eSolution's reasonable control, including, without limitation, acts of any governmental body, war, insurrection, sabotage, embargo, fire, flood, strike or other labor disturbance, interruption of or delay in transportation, unavailability of interruption or delay in telecommunications or third party services, including DNS propagation, domain name registration / transfer, failure of third party software or hardware or inability to obtain raw materials, supplies, or power used in or equipment needed for provision of your web site, or (4.) a client breaking any item in 4eSolution's "terms of conditions and acceptable use policy" causing a machine to fail as a result.

CGI Scripts

Each shared web hosting account comes with its own cgi-bin. You are free to use any CGI scripts you wish, however we reserve the right to disable any CGI script that effects normal shared server operation without prior warning. (this section does not apply to managed dedicated servers)

Chat Rooms

We do not allow clients to install their own chat rooms within a shared hosting account, without approving it with the 4eSolution Support Team. Most chat rooms tend to be large system hogs and we cannot allow it as an account option. However, we do provide a choice of Java chat rooms for a small extra charge that will more than fill your needs and run without hindering the performance of the machine for others. Note: Parachat chat rooms do not apply to this rule. They are perfectly fine to install.

Abuse of SMTP Mail Server

We do not allow clients to send more than 2000 pieces of e-mail per day from a shared hosting account. If you do send more than 2000 pieces of e-mail per day, your account will be placed on hold for Network Abuse. If you are sending legitimate e-mails and they total more than 2000 per day your account will be moved to a special server that is specifically designed to handle high volumes of e-mail. You will be charged $50.00/month in addition to your regular hosting charges if your account is moved to this server. Please contact refunds@4eSolution.com to have your domain moved.

Background Running Programs

We may allow programs to run continually in the background. These are considered on a one-to-one basis and an extra charge will be incurred based on system resources used and operational maintenance needed. (this section does not apply to managed dedicated servers)

IRC

We currently do not allow IRC or IRC bots to be operated on our servers. You can however, install IRC clients on managed dedicated servers. IRC servers are not permitted on our network.

Disk Overages

All 4eSolution accounts come with metered disk space. Should you use more than your alloted disk space you will be charged $.25 per megabyte per month.

Payment Policies

All accounts are set up on a pre-pay basis. Setup fees are charged for all new accounts and major account changes and are non-refundable. All pricing is guaranteed for the term of pre-payment. 4eSolution reserves the right to change prices at any time, unless other terms have been agreed upon. Any account not brought current within a week (7 days) of e-mail notice or exceeding this time frame in any way is subject to suspension. The customer is responsible for all money owed on the account from the time it was established to the time that the customer notifies 4eSolution at cancel.4eSolution.com to request for termination of services. All payment is in U.S. currency. 4eSolution will bill each client $50.00 per returned check, per wire transfer received and per credit card chargeback received. All 4eSolution accounts are setup on anniversary billing cycles. Your particular billing cycle corresponds to the contract length that was initially chosen at setup. Your account will automatically renew at this length. There is no fee to change to a shorter billing cycle at the end of the current cycle. However, if you wish to change to a shorter billing cycle, during a current cycle, there will be a $50.00 fee. Please contact the billing department at billing@4eSolution.com should you wish to change your anniversay billing cycle. Any account that is not brought current prior to deactivation will be charged a $25.00 reactivation fee as well as a $15.00 late charge, per domain deactivated. In addition, if your credit card declines for any reason 4eSolution will charge your account an additional $1.00 service charge every time your card is declined.

Cancellation

4eSolution reserves the right to cancel service at any time. All fees paid in advance of cancellation will be pro-rated and paid by 4eSolution if 4eSolution institutes it's right of cancellation. Any violation of policies which results in extra costs will be billed to the customer (i.e. transfer, space etc.)

All of 4eSolution's web hosting plans are backed by a 30 day money back guarantee. If you are not completely satisfied with our services or support within the first 30 days of your contract, you will be given a full refund of the contract amount excluding setup fees, domain registration fees, add-on/upgrade fees and overages. Setup fees are refundable only if the account order is canceled prior to account activation. For web hosting contracts of 3 months or less, the full contract amount less any setup fees and overages will be refunded if 4eSolution is notified within the first 30 days following activation. No refund is available after the 30th day. For web hosting contracts longer than 3 months, a refund equal to one half of the contract amount less any setup fees and overages will be given if 4eSolution is notified prior to the first day of the third month of the contract term. If you cancel prior to the end of your contract term and you received special pre-pay rates, your hosting fees will be adjusted so that you pay the regular, non-discounted monthly fees. No refunds for any reason will be given once the third month of the contract term has begun. This policy does not apply to any additional services such as overages, referrer logs, real audio/video, additional disk space, additional pop accounts, etc. Due to security concerns, all account cancellations must be done via our cancellation forms at web Control Panel. Phone or email requests will not constitute acceptance of any cancellation. Refunds will be made by company check or issued back to your credit card within 30 days of receipt of cancellation.
