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
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
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
- 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
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
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.
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.
of continuous downtime
60 minute intervals
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.
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.
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)
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)
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.
All 4eSolution accounts come with metered disk space. Should you use
more than your alloted disk space you will be charged $.25 per megabyte
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.
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.
