    1. SYSTEM ABUSE: Any customer in violation of our system or network security is subject to criminal and civil liability, as well as immediate account termination. Examples include, but are not limited to the following: Unauthorized access, use, probe, or scan of our system’s security, authentication measures, data or traffic. Interference with the service to any user, host or network including, but not limited to: e-mail bombing, flooding, deliberate attempts to overload the system and broadcast attacks, forging of any TCP/IP packet header or any part of the header information in an e-mail or newsgroup posting. Any attempt at doing harm to a server or a customer of our web hosting services: HostBS will immediately and resolutely react to any attempt at misuse of an Internet account or computer, or any attempt to gain access to an internet account or computer by a HostBS customer unauthorized by the account/computer owner. Such attempts include, but are not limited to the following: ‘Internet scamming’ (tricking other people into releasing their passwords, etc.), password robbery, security hole scanning, running proxy – proxy lists and any kind of proxy scripts (including, but not limited to php proxy and nph proxy),introducing of any computer programs (viruses, Trojan horses, trap doors, back doors, worms, time bombs, packet bombs, cancel bots, etc.) that are intended to negatively interfere with, intercept, irreversibly damage or take hold of any system, data or personal information. It WILL NOT matter whether the attacked account or computer belongs or not to HostBS services. The fraud will be subject to actions based on the very nature of the attack and those may represent a warning, an account suspension or cancellation, and/or civil or criminal legal actions.
    2. Background operations/programs on servers: ‘Background process’ is a program that runs in the background of the operating system. What is specific for a background process is that, once started, it runs simultaneously with other foreground processes. This means that, the shell executing the background operation does not wait for it to finish or terminate, as it does with foreground processes, but is free to start executing more operations along with the background one. Background processes are not permitted on any of our shared hosting servers, as they usually lead to CPU overload and can be used for malicious and/or illegal actions. As our primary task is to provide highest quality web hosting service to all our customers, we cannot permit any background processes to be executed and threaten the performance of our server network. Our shared hosting system does not allow a big multitude of users to simultaneously use the system memory and processing time of our servers.
    3. Excessive use of system resources: In order to ensure higher server performance and quality of hosting service all shared hosting plans are subject to certain resource limitations concerning, but not limited to, server CPU usage, Memory usage, disk-space and traffic. If a hosting account exceeds the allowed amount of system resources the account owner will be immediately notified to take actions in order to reduce the usage. If such action is not instantly taken by the owner, (the owner can request our support in case the problem cannot be identified) the account will be suspended. (If an excessive CPU usage is detected the account owner will be suggested to place an order for a CPU usage upgrade or upgrade to a plan which allows higher CPU usage.If any hosting account is found to be causing degradation of the server and/or our hosting network’s performance, regardless of the reason, the account will be subject to suspension or immediate removal, depending on the situation. HostBS will be the sole arbiter in determining whether a given account is excessively using the server resources and/or causing a server degradation.
    4. The information and content hosted on your server or hosting and any and all actions performed by, on or using your server or hosting are under your responsibility, regardless of which hosting plan and/or add-ons you've selected. You shall effect and maintain adequate insurance coverage in respect of any loss or damage to data stored on the server.

It is your responsibility to track your bandwidth usage and let us know if you wish to upgrade your bandwidth.
