High Resource Sites

Any site which is deemed as impairing the performance of our servers either by high disk utilization, high bandwidth usage, or high CPU usage will be entered into our "High Resource Customer" program. High Resource sites are sites that use an excessive amount of system resources such as bandwidth, Storage or CPU utilization. Sites like File Storage sites, Resold websites, Sub Hosting, Mailing lists, Chat Rooms, Banner rotation, MP3, AVI, MPEG storage, archiving Image galleries that take over 20% total space allotment, ZIP file archives, or other program/file distribution may be subject to an additional fee commensurate with the wear and tear on the server.

CGI Scripts

Most accounts come with their own cgi-bin. You are free to use any CGI scripts you wish, however we reserve the right to disable any CGI script that effects normal server operation without prior warning, and if any CGI programs disable the server in any way and we feel there is reason to believe that continued access to the server by the account holder puts the normal operation of the server in jeopardy, your shell access will be restricted and/or your account will be deleted. There is a $50.00 fee per incident if we have to deal with this situation due to negligence.

Set up of CGI scripts included in your hosting package is provided by Encanta. Also included is limited technical support of those scripts. For an additional fee, we will set-up and provide technical support for other CGI scripts not included in your hosting package.

Chat Rooms

We do not allow clients to install their own chat rooms. These tend to be large system hogs and we cannot allow it as an account option. You may use a remotely hosted chatroom option, such as Multichat or Zoom.

Background Running Programs
