Terms and condition
What do “free disk space, data transfer, and email storage” mean?
It’s pretty straightforward: Customers who use AFEESHOST can obtain free disk space, data transfer, and email storage if they use their services consistently with these paragraphs.
What is appropriate usage?
AFEESHOST 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 undue burden on our systems or negatively impacts use by small, independently owned and operated businesses.
AFEESHOST is a shared web hosting service, which means that a number of customers’ web sites and other email or storage services are hosted from the same server. AFEESHOST uses abuse controls to help ensure that 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.
If you use your services consistently with the Terms of Service and these paragraphs, your site can grow as large as necessary to meet your small business needs, but to ensure a great experience for all, we will place some constraints on how fast you can grow. The vast majority of our customers’ sites grow at rates well within our rules, but our abuse controls may cause a brief delay while we evaluate if expansion is appropriate.
In most cases, if you use our services consistently with the Terms of Service and these paragraphs, visitors to your web site will be able to download and view as much content from your site as they like. However, in certain circumstances, our server processing power, server memory, or abuse controls could limit downloads from your site. You can also upload as much as content as you like each month, subject only to the Terms of Service and the rules that control how fast your site can grow (see above).
You do not have to worry about hitting a storage limit if you use our services consistently with the Terms of Service and these paragraphs. AFEESHOST 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.

If a recipient asks to stop receiving e-mail, YOU must not send that person any further messages.

TECHNICAL SUPPORT BOUNDARIES
AFEESHOST provides technical support for YOU that encompasses within our area of expertise only. Such expertise includes assistance, troubleshooting, and debugging of our cPanel control panel interface, servers within our immediate responsibility and any other hosting related issues. However, in under no circumstances is AFEESHOST neither obligated to help YOU in the installations of new application modules, templates and/or programming languages, nor in providing assistance for any errors produced by any applications that have been modified by YOU previously. We will only provide assistance in making sure any EasyApps applications that are installed through the cPanel control panel interface are installed as directed.
Each shared web hosting account comes with its own CGI-BIN. YOU are free to use any CGI scripts YOU wish, however we reserve the rights to disable any CGI script that effects normal shared server operation without prior notice. (this section does not apply to managed dedicated servers)
We do not allow YOU to install YOUR own chat rooms within a shared hosting account, without approving it with AFEESHOST. This includes, but not limited to, chat applications written in PHP, Perl, CGI, Python, Ruby, etc. Any web application that provides ‘real-time’ chat is also not permitted. Most chat rooms tend to be large system hogs and we cannot allow it as an account option. However, web based forums such as vBulletin, phpBB or similar forum scripts are acceptable.
AFEESHOST installed and provides special file-servers in our network infrastructure for YOUR benefit as a means of storage for electronic files and applications that are not dynamically generated and is downloadable in nature. Files such as MP3, AVI, MID, MIDI, MPG, MPEG, MOV, ZIP, RAR, EXE and anything else we deemed as downloadable and not dynamically generated scripting languages are to be stored within these file-servers, away from the web-servers. This Policy does not apply for image files formats such as JPG, JPEG, GIF, PNG, and BMP. In addition, all electronic files stored within AFEESHOST’s file-servers must be legally-owned and be accompanied with a valid license and/or copyright. This include and is not limiting to MP3, AVI, MID, MIDI, MPG, MPEG, MOV, EXE, ISO. Should we discover any unlicensed and/or illegal files within YOUR account, the files will be subjected to deletion without any further notifications. File-servers will not be backed up. YOU are advised to have YOUR own backup locally or
elsewhere other than within the AFEESHOST’s servers. If YOU are found to not adhere to this Policy, the offending material(s) will be deleted from YOUR hosting account without any prior notice. This service is only available for AFEESHOST’s SHARED-HOSTING customers.
AfeesHost performs backups of client databases daily and weekly and all other files every other day and weekly on all of our servers to ensure critical files are never lost. Our backups are created for accounts that are under 5GB and 200,000 Inodes. For Reseller plans, these limits apply to each cPanel user individually. Furthermore, AfeesHost does not guarantee this feature to any of the clients, and therefore strongly advise the client to regularly perform a backup of their own data, hosted with us. In the unfortunate event that the client has lost their data hosted with AfeesHost, will use reasonable endeavors to restore the client’s data; however AfeesHost will not be responsible for lost data, time, income or any other resource due to faulty backups or non-existent back-ups or any data loss due to faulty hardware. We highly encourage our customers to have their own separate backups if your website or data is critical to your business or livelihood as no backup method is failsafe therefore we make no warranties.
The use of more than 200,000 inodes on any cPanel account (single user) may result in automatic warning on cPanel > Stats > inodes. There will be no service interruption at this stage but if no action is taken to reduce the inodes, service interruption may take place once a user reach 220,000 Inodes. Accounts found to be exceeding the 220,000 inode limit will automatically show resource exceeded message and may be suspended if no action is taken to reduce the inode count. Virtual private servers have a server wide limit of 5 million and there are no per cPanel user limits. Resellers with over 100 cPanel accounts, have a reseller wide limit of 1 million inodes in addition to the per user limit, however this reseller limit is not something we actively enforce and it will only become an issue if a reseller is causing problems for other resellers on the server. If a resellers inode usage is in between 5 to 10 million inodes we may request the reseller to upgrade to a dedicated server or provide adequate time to resolve the inode usage, if no action is taken by the reseller, account may be suspended. AHR1 resellers have a per user limit of 50,000 inodes and a 220,000 reseller wide limit of inodes. If this limit is exceeded, we may request the budget reseller to upgrade to a normal reseller plan or provide adequate time to resolve the inode usage, if no action is taken by the budget reseller, account may be suspended.
Every file (a webpage, image file, email, etc) on your account uses up 1 inode. Sites that slightly exceed our inode limits are unlikely to be suspended; however, accounts that constantly create and delete large numbers of files on a regular basis, have hundreds of thousands of files or resellers with millions of files that cause file system damage may be flagged for review and/or suspension. The primary cause of excessive inodes seems to be due to users leaving their catchall address enabled, but never checking their primary account mailbox. Over time, tens of thousands of messages (or more) build up, eventually pushing the account past our inode limit. To disable your default mailbox, login to cPanel and choose “Mail”, then “Default Address”, “Set Default Address”, and then type in: :fail: No such user here.
File hosting and file storage of any type is strictly prohibited on any and all our reseller, shared and hosting servers. You MAY NOT use your hosting with AfeesHost as a download or file storage repository. Our services are strictly offered for website hosting only. This does NOT mean that you can not have downloads on your site. This means you can not operate a site that specializes in downloads like Download.com or similar and you may not use your account as a storage repository for MP3, MP4, games, video, photos, images, audio or music files or as a backup storage facility.
