5. “Unlimited” Term and Resource Abuse Policy
EQHost’s unlimited features are designed to meet the typical requirements of small to medium business website clients. It is not intended to support the large demand of enterprises or mission critical hosting, which means any action of a single or few clients to unfairly impact the experience of other users of the same server is not allowed. The abuse and misuse of system resources is a serious problem, and EQHost does not tolerate it. Accounts on a shared server must be shared with other users, so we must limit how much of CPU and memory that can be used by any one account.
In all fairness, EQHost does not allow any 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
- Memory usage may not exceed 10% per domain/file/application
- CPU usage may not exceed 20% per domain/file/application
- Max hourly emails – 100
- Max incoming/outgoing email size – 20MB
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.
6. Chat Rooms and IRC
The use of chat rooms, IRC or IRC bots are prohibited on the shared hosting environment of EQHost and such cases would lead to termination of service.
7. Software Distribution
EQHost’s web hosting accounts are not to be used for the purposes of distributing software and multimedia products. If you wish to distribute software and/or multimedia files, please contact our sales for special arrangement.
EQHost reserves the right to add, delete, or modify any provision of this policy at any time without notice.
9. Copyright and Infringement
EQHost reserves the right to terminate any websites hosted by EQhost that are found to infringe on copyrights of third parties. EQHost shall terminate the client’s service of web hosting when no supportive information on disputed copyrights is provided to EQHost. In such cases, no refund or cancellation fee will be paid.
We may suspend the use of CGI, Perl, PHP, MySQL, SSL or other scripts should your account be found to be using an unfair amount of system resources and we may re-instate them at our discretion.
11. Utilization of Disk Space
EQHost offers its services to host websites’ files, not to be used as data storage. Using EQHost’s disk space as online storage space for archiving electronic files is prohibited and will result in the termination of service without any notification.
12. Web Files Backups

It is suggested that you DO NOT rely on EQHost’s backups. All EQHost data backups are designed against hardware failure not customer user error.
