Resource Abuse Policy
Any website on our shared servers that uses a high amount of server resources (CPU, memory usage, and network resources) will be given an option to upgrade to a VPS server. The abuse and misuse of shared system resources is a serious problem. Accounts on a shared server must share resources with other users so we must limit how much of the CPU and memory that can be used by any one account.
In all fairness, we cannot allow one or two clients to use all of the system resources on a shared machine and have all other clients suffer because of it. Excessive CPU & memory usage by one or more clients causes extreme slowness in all areas: MySQL, Email, HTTP and more. If the CPU & memory usage by a few clients gets out of hand, all sites hosted on the machine will return errors and not be accessible in any way.
Server Resource Limits:
- Memory usage may not exceed 512MB
- CPU usage may not exceed 25%
- Apache may not exceed 25 connections
- 15 MySQL maximum user connections allowed
- 80 max outgoing email per domain per hour
User may not:
- Use 25% or more of system resources for longer then 90 seconds. There are numerous activities that could cause such problems; these include: CGI scripts, FTP, PHP, HTTP, etc.
- Run stand-alone, unattended server-side processes at any point in time on the server. This includes any and all daemons, such as IRCD.
- Run any type of web spider or indexer (including Google Cash / AdSpy) on shared servers.
- Run any software that interfaces with an IRC (Internet Relay Chat) network.
- Run any bit torrent application, tracker, or client. You may link to legal torrents off-site, but may not host or store them on our shared servers.
- Participate in any file-sharing/peer-to-peer activities.
- Run any gaming servers such as counter-strike, half-life, battlefield1942, etc.
- Run any MySQL queries longer than 15 seconds. MySQL tables should be indexed appropriately.
- When using PHP include functions for including a local file, include the local file rather than the URL. Instead of include("http://yourdomain.com/include.php") use include("include.php").
- To help reduce usage, do not force HTML to handle server-side code (like PHP and SHTML).
- Only use https protocol when necessary; encrypting and decrypting communications is noticeably more CPU-intensive than unencrypted communications.
While Brontobytes offers "unlimited" disk space & bandwidth, the purpose of a Brontobytes hosting account is to host web sites. Your web site(s) should be well optimized and not causing issues for others on your shared server. Using a hosting account primarily for online file storage or archiving electronic files is prohibited. Brontobytes web hosting are shared hosting environments, so to ensure fast & reliable service to all of our clients, accounts that adversely affect server or network performance must correct these issues or will be asked to upgrade to a VPS server, or we may restrict the resources your website is using.
Our hosting services are intended for normal use only, and any activity that results in excessive usage that is inconsistent with normal usage patterns is strictly prohibited. Brontobytes reserves the right to suspend and/or terminate the accounts of Clients whose use of disk space, bandwidth or other resources results in or presents the risk of degradation of service to other customers, regardless of the amount of disk space, bandwidth or other resources included in the Client's plan.
Web hosting accounts may not have an excessive number of inodes. There is currently a limit of 200.000 inodes on our shared web hosting accounts. The use of more than 200.000 inodes on a shared web hosting account may potentially result in a warning first, and if no action is taken future suspension and/or deletion. Accounts exceeding 100.000 inodes will automatically be removed from our backup system to avoid over-usage.
Every file (a webpage, image file, email, folder, etc.) on your account uses up 1 inode. Accounts that constantly create and delete large numbers of files on a regular basis, exceed the allowed inode limit, or cause file system damage may be suspended and/or terminated.
We allow customers to set up cron jobs to perform routine functions automatically. Any client who schedules cron jobs in such a manner that jobs take more then half the time to complete before the next scheduled iteration, and more frequently then 15 minutes is abusing the cron system. Any automated processes that excessively consume resources and impact server stability may be disabled at our discretion by our technicians.
There are special exceptions to these rules to be determined at the time we discover abuse. There are different combinations of usage that can create problems and other special cases. At any given time a server is unstable and an account is found to be the cause, we reserve the right to suspend the account to keep the server online and operating normally. If the usage is an increasing trend, we recommend the user invest in a dedicated server so the website can grow at a normal rate without restriction.
In the event your website has been suspended for resource abuse (abuse that cannot be resolved by removing/changing a script, etc.) and you do not wish to upgrade to a VPS server to accommodate your site needs, we will only release the suspension within 24-48 hours. This is to ensure the CPU intensive site slows down in traffic to avoid further damage and problems. A backup will then be provided of your files or you will be allowed FTP/cPanel access for a certain time period. Any questions about our abuse policy may be answered by opening a ticket with our support department.
You could upgrade your hosting plan(s) anytime.
If you are upgrading your hosting package first 2 weeks after your last payment; customer will pay the difference of the next package and will have a new subscription at next payment date for the last package. If you upgrade your hosting package after 2 weeks of your last payment; customer must pay new package price and start to using it with new date. Old subscriptions are subject to cancel after new one achieved.

The Information Collected and How It Is Used
E-mail & Demographic Data.

We use contact information from the registration form to process quarterly Cash Back checks for our affiliate program, to send you a monthly Brontobytes newsletter, and to send you information that may help your business grow. The customer's contact information is also used to contact the visitor when necessary (i.e., customer support issues).

We use this data to tailor the customer's experience at our site, showing content that we think might be of interest, and displaying the content according to customer preferences.
Online Surveys. At times we conduct completely voluntary online surveys where we ask for contact information and solicit feedback on various topics from visitors. We use the collected data from such surveys to fine tune our product and service offerings. And we use contact data to follow-up with you to highlight the changes we have made to our business based on your feedback.
