HostMaza Terms & Conditions
All users of hostmaza services, and all customers upon signing up for hostmaza services, agree to comply with hostmaza Terms of Service ("TOS"). The spirit of the TOS is to ensure customers are using hostmaza services with due regard to the rights of other Internet users and in conformity with the requirements of the hostmaza network environment. The TOS are not exhaustive and hostmaza reserves the right to add, delete, or modify any provision of its TOS at any time without notice, effective upon either the posting of the modified TOS to www.hostmaza.com or notification of the modified TOS. Any complaints about a customer's violation of the TOS should be sent to email@example.com. Please see our abuse terms for more details on abuse policy. When you agree to the terms, you are also agreeing to our Billing terms. Except when expressly agreed to the contrary in writing by an authorized representative of hostmaza, this TOS supersedes any other agreement with hostmaza, whether written, oral, by conduct, or otherwise.
Any Web site that uses a high amount of server resources (such as, but not limited to, CPU time, memory usage, and network resources) will be given the option to reduce the resources used to an acceptable level. hostmaza will be the sole arbiter of what is considered to be a high server usage level. Any Web Hosting account deemed to be adversely affecting server performance or network integrity will be shut down without prior notice.
Any script that consumes large amounts of resources is not allowed, such as (but not limited to): Bots, proxy scripts, rapid leech scripts, torrent related scripts, chatting or chat room scripts, PTC (Paid-to-click) site scripts, file or image hosting scripts, mail-bombers or spam scripts, topsites scripts, auto-blog scripts and plugins. Such scripts will be terminated immediately with no prior notice and account owners will not be eligible for a refund. We provide shared hosting, therefore, any script you run that will consume large amounts of resources affects other customers on your server negatively, so please use common sense when using a script. If you are unsure of any script, before running the script in your account, please contact hostmaza Sales or Support to ensure the script is allowed.
No account should not use more than 25% of their CPU limit consistently for more than 30 minutes. If you are consistently using 25% or more CPU, you will need to upgrade to the next available hosting plan. If you are using the maximum hosting plan and are still using 25% or more CPU consistently, then you have most likely outgrown a shared hosting environment and should therefore obtain a VPS or dedicated server to better suit your needs.
Any account suspended or terminated due to violation of our Terms of Service will not be eligible for a refund, including during our 30 day money back guarantee period.
Server ResourcesSpam/Bulk Mail
hostmaza has a "No Tolerance" policy on Spam and bulk mail. Sending unsolicited, bulk and/or commercial messages over the Internet or by text messaging (known as "spamming") is prohibited, regardless of whether or not it overloads a server or disrupts service to hostmaza customers. hostmaza also does not allow CAN-SPAM compliant bulk email or consider emails not Spam just because you include an Opt-Out notice. The term "spamming" also includes, but is not limited to, maintaining an open SMTP policy, sending unsolicited text messages, engaging in spamming using the service of another ISP or IPP and referencing in the spam a Web site hosted on a hostmaza server, and selling or distributing software (on a Web site residing on a hostmaza server) that facilitates spamming. If a hostmaza server IP has become blacklisted due to spamming by a users domain name hosted on our servers, the violator will face immediate termination and no refunds will be given. hostmaza reserves the right to determine, in its sole and absolute discretion, what constitutes a violation of this provision.
Any client found to be spamming may face a spam cleanup fee from $250 - $500 depending on the circumstance and level of cleanup involved. Any account suspended or terminated due to spamming will not be eligible for a refund.
Denial of Service Attacks
"Stress testing" or purposely receiving DDoS/DoS attacks is not tolerated on our servers.
This also includes sending a DDoS/DoS or taking part in a DDoS/DoS from any hostmaza account, be it shared/reseller/vps or dedicated server. Any account found actively and knowingly sending abusive traffic will be immediately suspended and possibly terminated with no refunds given.
