If your package does not include unlimited traffic/hits, your account may be required to be upgraded, or Host Me Plus may suspend your site to reduce the load on the server you are currently residing. Host Me Plus will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of usage limitations. At any time Host Me Plus may suspend your site if it is using more resourses than your package allows, to reduce the load on the server you are currently residing.

Chat Rooms

HostForWeb, Inc does allow clients to install their own chat rooms. However, these tend to be large system hogs and may fall into the usage limitations clause. We do provide a html based cgi chatroom that runs without hindering the performance of the machine for others. You are free to run your own chat script, as long as it does not hinder server performance.

Background Processes/Programs

Host Me Plus may allow programs to run continually in the background, these are considered on a one to one basis and a extra charge may be incured based on system resources used and operational maintenance needed.

Cron Jobs

Host Me Plus does allow Cron Jobs to be conducted on our servers.


Host Me Plus currently does not allow IRC or IRC bots to be operated on our servers.

Multiple Connections

Multiple telnet and ftp sessions are allowed, on a single hosting account.

Idle Timeouts

Host Me Plus may disconnect any idle connection to the network.

Average timeouts are

FTP – 300 seconds
Telnet – 2 hours

Commercial Advertising – Email

Spamming, or the sending of unsolicited email, from a Host Me Plus server or using an email address that is maintained on a Host Me Plus machine is STRICTLY prohibited. For general reference, we consider spam any email that is sent to more than 10 people at a time that did not ask for it to be sent to them.

Host Me Plus will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision. Opt-In email is acceptiable, as long as Opt-Out/Removal request are fully honored. Please make an effort to limit outgoing mail on your account to no more than 5000 pieces per DAY and no more than 20 pieces per minute. Many times we have seen sites push over 1000 emails in one hit, this causes extreme server loads and prevents other people from accessing server services. Sites with large mailing databases, need to be placed on dedicated server or VPS platform.

Server Abuse

Any attempts to undermine or cause harm to a Host Me Plus server or customer of Host Me Plus is strictly prohibited. Host Me Plus will pursue legal action to the fullest extent for all abuse of the Host Me Plus Network.


If any terms or conditions are failed to be followed it will result in grounds for account suspension or de-activation. Host Me Plus reserves the right to suspend or remove any account without prior notice. If Host Me Plus deactivates your account(s) for violating policy, your will forfeit your rights to a refund…and none will be given. No refunds for advance payments, on de-activated accounts. Normal policy is a warning first, and account de-activation the second offense. Serious offenses may cause immediate de-activation.
