Acceptable Use Policy

Shared Web Hosting Server Email Policy:

Mail Lists: We have a strict policy regarding UCE/Spam on our network, but we do allow use of mailing lists within the constraints of our spam policy. However, sending thousands of e-mails off of a given server can impact the performance of the server. Therefore we limit the amount of e-mail allowed on our Shared Web Hosting Servers to no more than 200 e-mails per hr and 15 emails in 60 seconds per e-mail account or mailing script.

If running an email mailing list, all recipients must have double-opted in to receive mail from that particular list. We do NOT allow:

mailing to any email address for which full double-opt-in records are not on file and readily accessible (you may be asked to provide these records at any time);
mailing to any email address which did not double-opt-in to the exact list doing the mail-out;
mailing to any email address which has been rented, borrowed, purchased, or otherwise acquired by any means other than a direct double-opt-in subscription to that exact list;
mailing to any email address through a "joint venture" unless your list subscribers were advised prior to sign-up they would be receiving emails about other businesses as a result of subscribing to your list;
mailing to any email address more often than the frequency cited upon sign-up;
mailing to an email address after the recipient has unsubscribed. Once they have unsubscribed, they are gone. Do not contact them again.
SPAM / UCE (Unsolicited Commercial E-mail)

WL Mark Inc. Hosting is committed to a zero-tolerance, anti-Spamming policy on our network.

This also includes:

Sending unsolicited commercial email (a.k.a. "spam"), cross-posting messages to a large number of usenet groups;

The use of WL Mark Inc. Hosting servers as a mail drop for responses to activities described above;

Violation of WL Mark Inc. Hosting Spam policy will result in severe penalties. We have severe penalties in place in the hopes of discouraging users from participating in spamming.

Upon notification of an alleged violation of our Spam policy, WL Mark Inc. Hosting will initiate an investigation within 48 hours of notification. During the investigation, WL Mark Inc. Hosting may restrict customer access to the network to prevent further violations. If a customer is found to be in violation of our Spam policy, WL Mark Inc. Hosting will terminate the customer's account. Further, WL Mark Inc. Hosting reserves the right to pursue civil remedies for any costs associated with the investigation of a substantiated policy violation. WL Mark Inc. Hosting will notify law enforcement officials if the violation is believed to be a criminal offense. Accounts canceled due to spam will be billed an Administrative Fee of $500.

In the event an account is closed due to violation of the Spam policies, the customer's data and backups will be destroyed immediately. A customer who violates our Spam policies forfeits their right to access any material they have uploaded to our servers.

Content

All services provided by WL Mark Inc. Hosting may be used for lawful purposes only. Transmission, storage, or presentation of any information, data or material in violation of any United States Federal, State or City law, or in violation of the laws of any country, is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to: copyrighted material, trademark, intellectual property, material we judge to be threatening or obscene, material that advocates or calls for the commission of crimes or civil harms to any person, group of people, corporation, country, or any entity, or material protected by trade secret and other statute without proper authorization. The subscriber agrees to indemnify and hold harmless WL Mark Inc. Hosting from any claims resulting from the use of the service which damages the subscriber or any other party.

Also prohibited on all WL Mark Inc. Hosting servers are sites that promote any illegal activity or present content that may be damaging to WL Mark Inc. Hosting servers or any other server on the Internet. Links to such materials are also prohibited.

Examples of unacceptable content or links:

Pirated software
Hacker programs or archives
Warez sites
Any illegal activity, including adult content, links to adult content web sites, spamming or hacking will result in your site being shut down and all your files deleted without warning.
WL Mark Inc. Hosting will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision.

Pornography and Adult Content is prohibited on all WL Mark Inc. Hosting Shared Web Hosting servers. This includes sites that may infer sexual content, or links to adult content elsewhere. WL Mark Inc. Hosting will be the sole arbiter in determining violations of this provision and includes but is not limited to the following:

Photos or videos showing frontal nudity on either men or women for non-scientific or non-artistic purposes;
Hyperlinks to adult sites, including but not limited to sites who violate these policies;
Sites that have discussion boards and share information that is 'adult' in nature;
Sites that sell or promote 'adult' material, including but not limited to adult toys.
Child Pornography on the Internet

Our policy on child pornography is zero tolerance. WL Mark Inc. Hosting will cooperate fully with any criminal investigation into any customer's violation of the Child Protection Act of 1984 concerning child pornography. Customers, if they are resellers, are ultimately responsible for the actions of their clients over the WL Mark Inc. Hosting network, and will be liable for illegal material posted by any of their clients.

According to the Child Protection Act, child pornography includes photographs, films, video or any other type of visual presentation that shows a person who is or is depicted as being under the age of eighteen years and is engaged in or is depicted as engaged in explicit sexual activity, or the dominant characteristic of which is the depiction, for a sexual purpose, of a sexual organ or the anal region of a person under the age of eighteen years or any written material or visual representation that advocates or counsels sexual activity with a person under the age of eighteen years.

Violations of the Child Protection Act will be reported to the U.S. Customs Agency at 1-800-BEALERT

CGI Scripts Policy

Unfortunately, many good things are turned on us to be used for nefarious activities. Commonly used scripts are frequently exploited to allow unauthorized access to the systems they are running on. Others just require more resources than is allocated on a shared server environment.

Consequently, in order to keep WL Mark Inc. Hosting network and servers safe, we may need to take actions that inconvenience our good customers. Any time we find scripts or other commonly used tools that can become easily compromised or impact other users by using too many server resources, we may need to disable scripts or other tools installed and used by our customers.

Although our Dedicated Servers are semi-managed, we do not monitor or restrict the programs and scripts you run on your servers unless they place our network at risk. We do recommend that you keep your scripts current to reduce the risk of exploitation.

Whenever possible, we will notify our customers in advance.

Please contact our technical support team if you have questions regarding for 3rd party scripts.

Resource Abuse: Shared Web Hosting Servers

System resource abuse is defined as any site whose traffic, programs and/or processes are using excessive amounts of system resources, such as cpu usage and memory, for example. Excessive amounts is defined as any amount that results in degradation of server performance. WL Mark Inc. Hosting is the sole determinant of what constitutes degraded server performance.

Examples of banned software, processes and programs include, but are not limited to:

Flat file database/text driven Forums/Bulletin Boards: high resource usage, we recommend you use mysql data base driven forums;
IRC bots and clients: resource intensive;
Proxy servers: often used to hide identity;
Hivemail: high resource/abuse risk;
Matt's Formmail v. 1.91 and older, and Jack's Formmail PHP: please check with our technicians for recommendations. The common Formmail scripts tend to be easily exploited.
Background Running Processes: Background Daemons in general are prohibited on WL Mark Inc. Hosting Shared Web Hosting servers, including, but not limited to, IRC bots, eggdrop, BitchX, XiRCON, warez sites and any other program that interferes with normal server operation;
Persistent MySQL Connections: Due to the fact that persistent mySQL connections have the ability to use considerable server resources, this configuration is not allowed on our shared servers. It is understood that in some situations, persistent connections may actually reduce resource usage on a server. However, we have found that connections are commonly not released properly and are, therefore, more detrimental to a shared hosting environment than they are helpful.
Mail Lists: We have a strict policy regarding UCE/Spam on our network, but we do allow use of mailing lists within the constraints of our UCE/Spam policy. However, sending thousands of e-mails off of a given server can impact the performance of the server. Therefore we limit the amount of e-mail allowed on our Shared Web Hosting Servers to no more than 200 e-mails per hour, and 15 emails in 1 minute. Our daily email limit is a hard limit, meaning that any email from your domain over this limit will be bounced. Please use mailing list software that allows you to control the number of emails per number of seconds to reduce chance of outgoing email bouncing.
Any CPU process which consumes more than 29% of the CPU for longer than 10 consecutive minutes. Any combination of processes which consume more than 20% of the CPU time for longer than 30 minutes combined within a 24 hour period.
Offsite search engines: Resource intensive.
We allow customers to set up cron jobs to perform routine functions automatically. Due to the impact on the server, running some automated processes can take up considerable server resources and in those cases, our technicians may disable the cron job without prior notice.

Traffic Policy:

WL Mark Inc. Hosting allows for very generous traffic, and most sites never exceed 1 GB per month, unless they offer shareware, sound, video, image and multimedia archives, or are mirror sites or any site whose primary purpose is file distribution. WL Mark Inc. Hosting customers are discouraged from storing any files that cause excessive traffic on WL Mark Inc. Hosting shared web hosting servers. Please contact the WL Mark Inc. Hosting Technical Support team for more information. Again, most of the sites do not fall into this category and never reach our traffic limits. For customers with this type of traffic, you may want to consider a Dedicated Server plan which provides more resources and less expensive over bandwidth fees.

We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason not prohibited by law. Also we reserve the right to terminate service to any customer for any reason not prohibited by law.

Any deliberate attempt to cause damage to WL Mark Inc. Hosting or any other Internet servers will result in immediate account deactivation without prior notice. No refund is given in this case.

We will not host Web sites which contain adult material on our shared web hosting servers.

In the event you exceed the transfer limit allowed on your hosting plan, you will be charged over usage fees. We do not cap your data transfer at your hosting account limit. You can monitor your monthly transfer through your control panel.

Disk Space

WL Mark Inc. Hosting allows generous disk quota's for storing your files, graphics, pictures, etc. We do have some limits on our disk space that impact server performance:

Mail Box quota:
Our mail box quota is 100 MB per POP account. This should be adequate storage for email users and even Web Mail users. Once the quota exceeds 100 MB, using the Web Mail features can cause high loads on the server as it has to process all email in the mail box. If you travel and need to view your email online, we recommend using an email client software (Outlook, Outlook Express) to set the mail to be left on the server for 'x' number of days (as required for your travels), but use the email client to download your email for retention purposes.
DataBases:
We do not have a server level Database quota, it is part of your overall disk quota, but as your database grows, using the supporting software can begin using more server resources and begin impacting server performance. We highly recommend you maintain/optimize your databases and trim them on occasion. Many software vendors include trimming tools (a common example is forum software).
Backups

For our Shared Web Hosting Servers, backups are made daily off server and are kept for server restoration purposes. We do offer recovery service of files and directories for a per incident fee. No guarantees are made of any kind, either expressed or implied, as to the integrity of these backups. It is the clients' responsibility to maintain local copies of their Web content and information. There are backup tools provided in the customers control panels to assist them with backing up their data.

On our Managed Dedicated Servers, we do not backup the data by default. There are fee-based Backup options available and there are tools available in your control panel for backing up your data. No guarantees are made of any kind, either expressed or implied, as to the integrity of these backups.

Customer Security Responsibility

The customer is solely responsible for any breaches of security affecting servers under customer control. If a customer's server is involved in an attack on another server or system, it will be shut down and an immediate investigation will be launched to determine the cause/source of the attack. In such event, the customer is solely responsible for the cost to rectify any damage done to the customer's server and any other requirement affected by the security breach. The labor used to rectify any such damage is categorized as emergency security breach recovery and is currently charged at $275 USD per hour. Please use the contact form on our home page for Inquiries regarding security matters.

System and Network Security

Violations of system or network security are prohibited, and may result in criminal and civil liability. WL Mark Inc. Hosting may investigate incidents involving such violations and may involve and will cooperate with law enforcement if a criminal violation is suspected. Examples of system or network security violations include, without limitation, the following:

• Unauthorized access to or use of data, systems or networks, including any attempt to probe, scan or test the vulnerability of a system or network or to breach security or authentication measures without express authorization of the owner of the system or network.

• Unauthorized monitoring of data or traffic on any network or system without express authorization of the owner of the system or network.

• Interference with service to any user, host or network including, without limitation, mail bombing, flooding, deliberate attempts to overload a system and broadcast attacks.

• Forging of any TCP-IP packet header or any part of the header information in an e-mail or a newsgroup posting.

• High-risk services, which are services which tend to attract denial of service attacks, are strictly prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to, IRC related services and selling of shell accounts.

Violators of the policy are responsible, without limitations, for the cost of labor to clean up and correct any damage done to the operation of the network and business operations supported by the network, and to respond to complaints incurred by WL Mark Inc. Hosting. Such labor is categorized as emergency security breach recovery and is currently charged at $275 USD per hour required. Please use the contact form on our home page for Inquiries regarding security matters. WL Mark Inc. Hosting is concerned with the privacy of online communications and web sites. In general, the Internet is neither more nor less secure than other means of communication, including mail, facsimile, and voice telephone service, all of which can be intercepted and otherwise compromised. As a matter of prudence, however, WL Mark Inc. Hosting urges its customers to assume that all of their online communications are insecure. WL Mark Inc. Hosting cannot take responsibility for the security of information transmitted over WL Mark Inc. Hosting facilities.

Internet Etiquette

The customer is expected to be familiar with and to practice good Internet etiquette (Netiquette). The customer will comply with the rules appropriate to any network to which WL Mark Inc. Hosting may provide access. The customer should not post, transmit, or permit Internet access to information the customer desires to keep confidential. The customer is not permitted to post any material that is illegal, libelous, and tortuous, indecently depicts children or is likely to result in retaliation against WL Mark Inc. Hosting by offended users. WL Mark Inc. Hosting reserves the right to refuse or terminate service at any time for violation of this section.
