Account Security and Host Caring Systems
It is your responsibility to ensure that scripts/programs installed under your account are secure and permissions of directories are set properly, regardless of the installation method. When at all possible, set permissions on most directories to as restrictive as possible. Users are ultimately responsible for all actions taken under their account. This includes the compromise of credentials such as username and password. You are required to use a secure password. If a weak password is used, your account may be suspended until you agree to use a more secure password. Audits may be done to prevent weak passwords from being used. If an audit is performed, and your password is found to be weak, we will notify you and allow time for you to change or update your password before suspending your account.
Inode Limits Customers cannot use more than 500,000 inodes (each file (i.e. a webpage, image file, email, etc.) in a hosting account uses up one (1) inode). The inode usage will be on display in each cPanel, in the STATISTICS sidebar. When a customer reaches the 500,000 inodes limit, his account will no longer have “write” privileges, i.e. he will not be able to upload new files or receive and send emails. Customers that have reached the inodes limit will still be able to edit pre-existing files and their websites will continue to function, as long as they don’t rely on the creation of new files.
The Services, including all related equipment, networks and network devices are provided only for authorized customer use. We may, but are not obligated to, monitor our systems, including without limitation, to ensure that use is authorized, to facilitate protection against unauthorized access, and to verify security procedures, survivability, and operational security. During monitoring, information may be scanned, examined, recorded, copied and used for authorized purposes. By using the Services, you consent to monitoring for these purposes.
Any account found connecting to a third-party network or system without authorization from the third-party is subject to suspension. Access to networks or systems outside of your direct control requires the express written consent of the third-party. We may, at our discretion, request documentation to prove that your access to a third-party network or system is authorized.
Any account that is found to be compromised may be disabled and/or terminated. If you do not clean up your account after being notified by us of an ongoing issue, we reserve the right to keep your account disabled. Upon your request, we may clean-up your account for an additional fee.
We reserve the right to migrate your account from one data-center to another in order to comply with applicable data center policies, local law or for technical or other reasons without notice.
CPU usage (or usage of the Central Processing Unit(s)) on the web server Customer’s account is hosted on is subject to some regulations. That means that each hosting account can take advantage of up to 10% of the CPU power for no longer than 180 seconds at any given time or 4% per account in the course of 24 hours. HostCaring strongly requires that customers be very judicious when using the CPU power for their accounts. In case of higher than the allowed CPU usage, the following procedure will take place:
First Suspension – The harmful account will be suspended and an automatically notification will be sent to the reseller. The reseller can un-suspend the account but should consider this as warning and undertake measures to prevent the CPU overload.
Second Suspension– In case of CPU overload recurrence the harmful account will be suspended again and the reseller should contact HostCaring, which will consider unblocking the account.
Third Suspension– If the other two previous warnings are not considered as serious, HostCaring will permanently suspend the account without any future option.
The account’s owner may be required to upgrade to a dedicated or semi-dedicated web hosting solution. Possible alternative is a required reduction in the load and traffic that the customer’s account gets. HostCaring reserves the right to block files or scripts that use CPU exceedingly and notify clients.
Users are NOT allowed to send more than 150 emails per hour per hosting account.
MySQL usage: each database hosted on our system can be used only by the user who has created it. Another user, whose account is hosted on the same or on another server, cannot use the database created in your account. The MySQL database has a limit of 45000 queries per hour. If you have reached 45000 queries per a given hour, you will not be able to make any more queries. In the next hour you will have access to the database again and the counter will be reset.
MySQL databases that affect the normal performance of the MySQL server will be removed.
