This AUP governs the use of FaveHosting.com's web hosting services. Violation of this AUP may result in suspension or termination of your service. In the event of a dispute between you and FaveHosting.com regarding the interpretation of this AUP, FaveHosting.com's interpretation, in its reasonable commercial judgment, shall govern.
The following is the entire Acceptable User Policy ('AUP') agreement between FaveHosting.com and the personal or corporate account holder. FaveHosting.com provides web hosting, management, and script installation. FaveHosting.com has certain legal and ethical responsibilities consisting of the use of its servers and equipment involved in these services. FaveHosting.com's general policy is to act as a provider of Internet presence. FaveHosting.com reserves the right to suspend or cancel a customer's access to any or all services provided by FaveHosting.com when we decide that the account has been inappropriately used.
FaveHosting.com is designed to serve the web hosting needs of small, independently owned, and operated businesses in a single country. It is not appropriate to use our services to support large enterprises or internationally based businesses with a sustained demand that places an undue burden on our systems or negatively impacts use by small, independently owned, and operated businesses.
FaveHosting.com is a shared web hosting service, which means that a number of customers' websites and other email or storage services are hosted from the same server. FaveHosting.com uses abuse controls to help ensure that the use of our services does not adversely affect the performance of our system or other customers' sites. It is not appropriate to use an account primarily as an online storage space or for archiving electronic files.
You do not have to worry about hitting a storage limit if you use our services consistently with the terms of Service and our acceptable usage policy. FaveHosting.com will increase your space along with your appropriate small business needs, but our abuse controls may impact the rate of growth or your folder size, and there may be a short delay while we assess your usage. In some cases, creating additional folders or subfolders will help ensure that the system works well for everyone. You will always be allowed to use as much disk space is applied to your account.
You may have noticed all of our accounts come with unlimited email accounts, sub-domains, FTP accounts, and in some cases domains. This is subject to how much disk space your account has. So you can create as many emails, sub-domains, etc as you want as long as it's within your disk space limit.
All accounts are protected by CloudLinux virtualization. The resources allocated to our clients through packages are not dedicated to the account, and no right to use the entirety of any resource is given. These are in place to lessen attack disruption and/or abusive behavior from affecting other customers on the same node. If you are persistently reaching these limits, we may request that you upgrade your plan (if applicable) or move to a more powerful environment such as a VPS or dedicated server. We retain the right to change these limits without notice and to suspend service(s) that are persistently reaching their resource limits.
All cPanel host nodes run daily backups of accounts, the maximum retention period is 45 days. This process happens during off-peak hours and may cause a decrease in server performance during this time, we are not responsible for any performance decrease during the process. Accounts using more than 100GB quota and/or 300,000 inodes are excluded from the backup process to ensure tasks are completed in a timely manner without hindering performance. We provide these backups as an emergency fail-safe and cannot guarantee their availability to users.
Backups older than 30 days in a user account may be removed from the server at our discretion.
You agree that we may remove impermissible data from our servers at any time at our sole discretion without notice. We may also delete the following types of files if we find them to be using excessive amounts of disk space, especially if affecting other users:
cPanel or other backups stored locally.
Softaculous backups stored locally.
Softaculous backup temp files.
Common CMS backups stored locally.
Common CMS backup temp files.
Common CMS backup logs.
Excessively sized error logs.
