PAMIRWEBS web hosting accounts are not to be used for the purposes of distributing and/or storing an unusual amount of files. We are a web hosting service not a remote file storage service. Any web site whose disk space usage for storing the files exceed 70% of its total usage, either in terms of total size or number of files, will be deemed to be using unusual amount of files.

PAMIRWEBS will investigate occurrences, which may involve cooperation with law enforcement authorities in prosecuting Users who are involved in such violations.

Free Hosting Sites
PAMIRWEBS  believes in the freedom of hosting. We do allow our users to run Free Hosting sites, though for having lots abuses and resources delegation PAMIRWEBS reserves the rights to set a limit over an account if abuse department approves the account as a “FREE HOSTING PROVIDER”. Usually for a free hosting provider a 20 domains limit is eligible if and only if the provider is a TLD Free domain hosting provider, if the provider is a subdomain hosting (FREE) then the limit is set to 10 domains usually. We do not block free hosting services like other hosting providers though, for abuse and resource limitation on a premium server this policy is applied.

Responsibility
The client is responsible for all activity originating from the account unless proven to be a victim of outside hacking or address forgery. The client is responsible for securing their username/password. The client assumes responsibility for all material on their site that may be put on by a third party (such as the usage of Free For All links pages). Use of PAMIRWEBS ’s service requires a certain level of knowledge in the use of Internet languages, protocols, and software. This level of knowledge varies depending on the anticipated use and desired content of the web space by the client. The following examples are offered: Web Publishing: requires knowledge of HTML, properly locating and linking documents, FTPing Web contents, Graphics, text, sound, image mapping, etc. FrontPage web publishing: knowledge of the FrontPage tools as well as Telnet and FTP understanding and capability. CGI-Scripts: requires a knowledge of the UNIX environment, TAR & GUNZIP commands, Perl, CShell scripts, permissions, etc. Mail: a use of mail clients to receive and send mail, etc. The client agrees that he or she has the necessary knowledge to create and maintain their web space. Client agrees that it is not the responsibility of PAMIRWEBS to provide this knowledge or support outside matter specific to PAMIRWEBS servers.

Backups
PAMIRWEBS takes extreme steps to maintain system integrity. However, PAMIRWEBS shall not be held responsible for loss of data due to any cause. To ensure the highest level of data protection, PAMIRWEBS recommends that ALL information be backed up on your own computer. As with any data that you hold a high importance to, it should be in more than one location at all times. All PAMIRWEBS data backups are designed against hardware failure not customer user error.

Actions
The failure by a customer to meet or follow any of the above policies/terms is grounds for account deactivation. PAMIRWEBS will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of the AUP. PAMIRWEBS reserves the right to remove any account without prior notice.

When PAMIRWEBS becomes aware of an alleged violation of its AUP, PAMIRWEBS will initiate an investigation. During the investigation, PAMIRWEBS may restrict a customer’s access in order to prevent further potentially unauthorized activity. Depending on the severity of the violation, PAMIRWEBS may, at its sole discretion, restrict, suspend, or terminate a customer’s web hosting account and/or pursue other civil remedies. If such violation is a criminal offense, PAMIRWEBS will notify the appropriate law enforcement authorities of such violation.

PAMIRWEBS does not issue credits for outages incurred through service disablement resulting from AUP violations.

PAMIRWEBS customers agree to indemnify and hold harmless PAMIRWEBS from any claims resulting from the use of our services that damages them or any other party. The PAMIRWEBS service is provided on an as is, as available basis without warranties of any kind, either express or implied, including, but not limited to, warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose or non-infringement. PAMIRWEBS expressly disclaims any representation or warranty that the PAMIRWEBS service will be error-free, secure or uninterrupted. No oral advice or written information given by PAMIRWEBS, its employees, licensors or the like, will create a warranty; nor may you rely on any such information or advice. PAMIRWEBS and its partners and suppliers will not be liable for any cost or damage arising either directly or indirectly from any transaction or use of the service.

Modification
PAMIRWEBS reserves the right to add, delete, or modify any provision of this policy at any time without notice.

Refusal of Service
We reserve the right to refuse, cancel, or suspend service at our sole discretion. An example of refusal of service is if an account continues to abuse our policies after warnings. Refusal, cancellation or suspension of services especially holds true to issues with spam or any script abuse. Another example of refusal of service is if a customer becomes very unreasonable, unprofessional, extremely difficult to work with or threatening. Said customer’s account will be suspended and we will recommend to the customer to find a new host. A backup of the account(s) will be provided.

Resource Abuse Policy (RAP)
Any website on our shared servers that uses a high amount of server resources (CPU, memory usage, and network resources) will be given an option to pay for a dedicated server. The abuse and misuse of system resources is a serious problem, and PAMIRWEBS does not tolerate it. Accounts on a shared server must be shared with other users, so we must limit how much of the CPU and memory that can be used by any one account.

In all fairness, we cannot allow one or two clients to use all of the system resources on a shared machine and have all other clients suffer because of it. Excessive CPU & memory usage by one or more clients causes extreme slowness in all areas: MySQL, Email, HTTP and more. If the CPU & memory usage by a few clients gets out of hand, all sites hosted on the machine will return errors and not be accessible in any way.

Average Server Resource Limits (Per cPanel Account)
# Memory usage may not exceed 30% per domain/file/application
# CPU usage may not exceed 30% per domain/file/application
# Apache connections may not exceed 80-100 connections
# 100-150 MySQL maximum user connections allowed
# 250 emails per hour, per domain

Please note that, our SRL (Server Resource Limit) allowance is highest than any other hosting company offered on shared hosting for their customer.

There are special exceptions to these rules to be determined at the time we discover abuse. There are different combinations of usage that can create problems and other special cases. At any given time a server is unstable and an account is found to be the cause, we reserve the right to suspend the account to keep the server online and operating normally. If the usage is an increasing trend, we recommend the user invest in a dedicated server so the website can grow at a normal rate without restriction.
