Unlimited Usage Policy:
You are not allowed to use the unlimited hosting space for keeping/sharing files unrelated to the website. Keeping backups files on the server is also not allowed.
What "Unlimited" means
Unlimited Disk Space/Bandwidth/Website Plans. This means that we do not set a limit on the amount of bandwidth, websites, or disk space you may use in the normal operation of a personal or small business website, provided it complies with this Agreement. However, in the event your service usage or content presents a risk to the stability, performance, or uptime of our servers, data storage, networking, or other infrastructure, you may be required to upgrade to a VPS, or we may take action to restrict the resources your website is utilizing.
What "Unlimited" DOES NOT mean
Domain Hostia employs complex mechanisms to protect its hosting Subscribers and systems from any kind of abuse. Domain Hostia's " Unlimited" hosting offering is not for single or few hosting subscribers to unfairly or adversely impact the experience of other hosting Subscribers. Domain Hostia's service is offering shared hosting service, which means that multiple hosting Subscriber's websites are hosted from the same server and share server resources. Domain Hostia's service is designed to meet the typical needs of small and medium-sized businesses across the globe. It is NOT intended to support the sustained demand of large enterprises, or non-typical applications better suited to a VPS or a dedicated server. Domain Hostia will make every commercially reasonable effort to provide additional resources to Subscribers who are using their website(s) consistent with these Terms, including moving Subscribers to newer and bigger shared servers as necessary. However, in order to ensure a consistent and quality experience for all Subscribers, Domain Hostia does place automated safeguards to protect against any website growing too quickly and adversely impacting the system until Domain Hostia can evaluate said sites resource needs.
Unlimited Hosting Space; excessive SQL Database
Domain Hostia does not set any specific limits on the amount of disk space a hosting subscriber can use for their website, nor does Domain Hostia charge additional fees based on an increased amount of storage used, provided the hosting subscriber's use of storage complies with these Terms. Please note, however, that the Domain Hostia service is designed to host websites. Domain Hostia does NOT provide unlimited hosting for online storage, videos, images, audio, games, installers, executable files, backups, or archiving of electronic files, documents, log files, web spider or indexer, IRC, torrent, file sharing, peer-to-peer activities, testing environment, etc., and any such prohibited use of the Services will result in the termination of hosting subscriber's account, with or without notice. Accounts with an excessive database size (i.e., more than 1 GB) negatively affect the performance of the server. Domain Hostia may request that the database size be reduced to ensure proper performance or may disable the Subscriber's account, with or without notice. Hosting subscribers can create multiple databases however size of each database should not be more than 1 GB.
Unlimited File Transfer
Domain Hostia does not set any limits on the amount of visitor traffic a website can receive or on the amount of content a hosting subscriber can upload to his/her/its website in a given month, nor does Domain Hostia charge additional fees based on increased use of bandwidth, as long as the hosting subscriber's use of the Services complies with these Terms. In most cases, a hosting subscriber's website will be able to support as much traffic as the hosting subscriber can legitimately acquire. However, Domain Hostia reserves the right to limit processor time, bandwidth, processes, or memory in cases where it is necessary to prevent negatively impacting other hosting subscribers.
Unacceptable Resource Usage
# Run cron entries with intervals of less than fifteen (15) minutes.
# Run any MySQL queries longer than thirty (30) seconds.
# 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.
# The size of each mailbox should not exceed 5GB and the combined mailbox size per domain should not exceed 50GB.
This Usage Policy and accompanying definitions pertain to certain web hosting accounts that may be offered on our website that include “unmetered bandwidth”, “unmetered data transfer”, “unlimited disk space”, and/or “unlimited storage”.
Disk Space, Storage, Bandwidth, and Data Transfer
For certain Shared and WordPress web hosting plans, there is no upward limit to the amount of disk space, storage, bandwidth, or data transfer a single customer may use with respect to their web hosting. Subject to these terms, Domain Hostia makes every reasonable commercial effort to provide its customers with the disk space, storage, bandwidth, and data transfer resources required for the normal operation of a website. Our goal is to provide the resources required for a typical website that may experience periods of growth resulting in increasing demands for resources (such as disk space, storage, bandwidth, or data transfer) without customers being subject to additional charges.
In order to ensure excellent performance for all websites on a server, customers must be fully compliant with our terms of service and utilize disk space, storage, bandwidth, and data transfer in a manner consistent with the normal operation of a website. While rare, when performed on a server is compromised due to excessive demands by an individual website, we occasionally need to temporarily constrain accounts that are utilizing more server resources than should be the case in the normal operation of a small business website. For those accounts that are consistently making excessive demands above the normal operation of a website, including those that are not in compliance with our Terms of Service, we may suspend or terminate the account in question or ask that the customer adjust the web hosting plan they are currently on to one that better matches the needs of their website.
What is acceptable and appropriate usage?
Websites utilizing server resources within these technical limits and in accordance with our Terms of Service are considered to be operating normally and using resources appropriately. In addition, we provide customers with the ability to easily monitor in real-time the level of server resources their website and account are using, and we are always available to help answer questions about how a website’s performance can be optimized.
Domain Hostia is continually investing in technology and support features. Our web hosting solutions have been specifically designed to serve the web hosting needs of small and independently owned and operated businesses and organizations throughout the world. Since you will be hosting your website with hundreds of others on our servers in a shared community, our offerings are not intended to support enterprise-level or large company requirements. This typically also includes eCommerce websites, high traffic websites that require greater server processing resources than a shared web hosting server can provide, and websites that have been configured improperly or have been extended with additional functionality causing higher server demands. For these types of websites, we may recommend migrating your account to higher performance services that provide dedicated server resources such as a virtual private server (VPS) plan.
To ensure that our hosting is reliable for all customers within a specific server community, we monitor our servers continuously in order to maintain optimal performance, and occasionally have to take preventative measures on individual websites or accounts where resource usage is adversely affecting the server’s performance. If your website is subject to these measures we will attempt to contact you to determine the potential cause for this excessive usage and highlight possible ways you that can make adjustments or changes to your website before we take any corrective actions.
Lastly, our web hosting service is intended for hosting websites, not for backing up or storing user data. Using your web hosting account primarily as an online storage space for archiving electronic files and images is strictly prohibited.
What is unlimited?
Unlimited disk space and/or unlimited storage: Create a website as large as you like, hundreds or thousands of web pages and you will not be penalized for exceeding any upper limit. However, please realize that there are many other users on your server, and growing a website too quickly may use excessive resources in a short period of time. If this happens, we may restrict certain resources to prevent other customers’ websites on that server from being adversely affected. The vast majority of our customers' sites grow at rates well within our rules, however, and will not be impacted. Typically, customers only experience issues if they use their accounts for storage (for example large multimedia files) backup, computer backup, or file sharing. Our web hosting services are not intended to support these activities, and in accordance with our Terms of Service your disk space, storage, bandwidth, and data transfer usage must be exclusively for operating your website normally.
Unlimited websites: You can create as many websites as you want in your account.
Unlimited email accounts: You can create an unlimited number of email accounts or email addresses. However, please keep in mind that the “unlimited disk space” or “unlimited storage” of your hosting plan is intended for website files only. While email account creation is unlimited, these services rely on the file storage available on your account, so you must operate within the Terms of Service to ensure resources are available to fully enable email functionality.
Unlimited hosting space but excessive database files: On most Domain Hostia Shared and WordPress hosting plans we do not set limits on the amount of disk space, storage, bandwidth, or data transfer allowed for an individual customer account, nor do we charge additional fees based on an increased amount of usage, so long as you are compliant with our Terms of Service. However, Domain Hostia’s services are designed to host websites and as such we DO NOT provide unlimited space for backups or the archiving of electronic files, emails, documents, log files, etc., and such activity may result in suspension or termination of your account without notice. Furthermore, accounts with an extraordinarily large number of files can have an adverse effect on server performance. This includes, but is not limited to, accounts with an excessive number of database files or an unreasonably large database size. Domain Hostia may request that the number of files/nodes, database tables, or total database usage is reduced to ensure proper performance for all customers on that server, or we may suspend or terminate your account, with or without notice.
Unlimited domain hosting: Most Domain Hostia Shared and WordPress hosting plans do not set an upper limit to the number of domains a customer can associate with their web hosting account.
What is unmetered?
Unmetered bandwidth and unmetered data transfer: Unmetered bandwidth and unmetered data transfer mean that we do not have defined limitations on the amount of bandwidth you can use or the amount of data you can transfer. These resources are "unmetered", meaning you are not billed according to the amount of bandwidth used. You can use as much bandwidth and transfer as much data as you need to operate your website normally so long as you comply with our Terms of Service and your website’s resource requests do not negatively impact the performance of the server, including the other websites hosted on the server. If you use your web hosting solution resources appropriately, visitors to your website will be able to view and download as much content from your site as they wish.
