During monitoring, information may be examined, recorded, copied and used for authorized purposes. Use of EasyHost1 system(s) constitutes 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 must be with expressed written consent from the third party. EasyHost1 may, at its discretion, request and require documentation to prove access to a third party network or system is authorized. EasyHost1 reserve the right to refuse service to anyone. Any material that, in our judgment, is obscene, threatening, illegal, or violates our terms of service in any manner may be removed from our servers (or otherwise disabled), with or without notice. Failure to respond to email from us within 48 hours may result in the suspension or termination of your services. All abuse issues must be dealt with via troubleticket/email and will have a response within 48 hours. EasyHost1.com is not in a position to investigate and validate or invalidate the veracity of individual defamation claims. In any case in which a court order indicates material is defamatory, libelous, or slanderous in nature; EasyHost1 will disable access to the material. EasyHost1 is a republisher and not the publisher of content. Our service merely provides a hosting platform and space on which to host content, and any creation or publication of content on our services is the sole responsibility of the third-party user which creates or publishes the content. Therefore, EasyHost1.com should not be held liable for any allegedly defamatory, offensive or harassing content published on sites hosted under EasyHost1's Web hosting service(s).

Potential harm to minors is strictly forbidden, including but not limited to child pornography or content perceived to be child pornography (Lolita). Any site found to host child pornography or linking to child pornography will be suspended immediately without notice.

It is your responsibility to ensure that scripts/programs installed under your account are secure and permissions of directories are set properly, regardless of installation method. When at all possible, set permissions on most directories to read only or as restrictive as possible. Users are ultimately responsible for all actions taken under their account. This includes the compromise of credentials such as user name and password. It is required that you 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, EasyHost1 will notify you and allow time for you to change/update your password.

3.) Resource Usage
User may not: 
1) Use 25% or more of system resources for longer then 90 seconds. There are numerous activities that could cause such problems; these include: CGI scripts, FTP, PHP, HTTP, etc.
2) Run stand-alone, unattended server-side processes at any point in time on the server. This includes any and all daemons, such as IRCD. 
3) Run any type of web spider or indexer (including Google Cash / AdSpy) on shared servers.
4) Run any software that interfaces with an IRC (Internet Relay Chat) network.
5) Run any bit torrent application, tracker, or client. You may link to legal torrents off-site, but may not host or store them on our shared servers. 
6) Participate in any file-sharing/peer-to-peer activities
7) Run any gaming servers such as counter-strike, half-life, battlefield1942, etc 
8) Run cron entries with intervals of less than 15 minutes.
9) Run any MySQL queries longer than 15 seconds. MySQL tables should be indexed appropriately.
10) When using PHP include functions for including a local file, include the local file rather than the URL. Instead of include("http://yourdomain.com/include.php") use include("include.php")
11) To help reduce usage, do not force html to handle server-side code (like php and shtml).
12) Only use https protocol when necessary; encrypting and decrypting communications is noticeably more CPU-intensive than unencrypted communications.

4.) Bandwidth Usage
You are allocated a monthly bandwidth allowance. Should your account pass the allocated amount, EasyHost1 reserve the right to suspend the account until the start of the next allocation, suspend the account until it has been upgraded for more bandwidth through Dedicated Server solution or terminate the account. Unused transfer in one month cannot be carried over to the next month.

EasyHost1 reserves the right to charge the holder of the account used to send any unsolicited e-mail a clean up fee or any charges incurred for blacklist removal. This cost of the clean up fee is entirely at the discretion of EasyHost1.

You agree to supply appropriate payment for the services received from EasyHost1, in advance of the time period during which such services are provided. Subject to all applicable laws, rules, and regulations, all payments will apply to the oldest invoice(s) in your billing account. You agree that until and unless you notify EasyHost1 of your desire to cancel any or all services received, those services will be billed on a recurring basis.

It is your responsibility to ensure that your payment information is up to date, and that all invoices are paid on time.

EasyHost1 reserves the right to bill your credit card or billing information on file with us. EasyHost1 provides a 7 day grace period from the time the invoice is generated and when it must be paid. Any invoice that is outstanding for 7 days and not paid will result in a $10 late fee and/or an account suspension until account balance has been paid in full. The $10 late fee is applied in addition to whatever else is owed to EasyHost1 for services rendered. Access to the account will not be restored until payment has been received.

Invoices that have been paid more than once with multiple Paypal Subscriptions can only be added as credit towards the account and cannot be refunded via Paypal. If you require assistance with this provision, please visit to create a support ticket to our Billing department.
