It is also understood that you will not publish information over the Internet that may be used by one party to harm another. FastWebEngine may or may not give notice before deactivating the use of an account(s) which FastWebEngine deems an abusive or unethical use of the web hosting account(s) or host server(s). Please use common sense with regard to the following:

  1. Adult Content
    Adult web sites, adult photo galleries and/or adult file sharing services are prohibited on FastWebEngine servers.

  2. IRC Networks
    Hosting an IRC server that is part of or connected to another IRC network or server is prohibited. This includes but is not limited to, the use of IRC clients, server software, bots or anything related to IRC. Servers found to be connecting to or part of these networks will be removed from the FastWebEngine network without notice.

  3. SPAM
    Use of the FastWebEngine servers or services to send unsolicited bulk email (UBE) or unsolicited commercial email (UCE) is prohibited. Use of the service of another provider to send UCE, SPAM or mail bombs, to promote a site hosted on or connected to the FastWebEngine network is similarly prohibited. Violations of this type may result in termination of your contract and account. Opt-in email is acceptable provided there is a functional unsubscribe link and such opt-out requests are honored immediately. Account holders attempting to relay email or unsolicited bulk email (UBE) through the FastWebEngine servers or services will be suspended without notice.

  4. Shared Storage
    Shared storage, or your disk space allocation, may only be used for you website files, active email, and the content of your websites. Shared storage may not be used for offsite storage of electronic files including media, email, or other data, or for the storage of FTP host files.

  5. Excessive Resource Usage
    FastWebEngine servers provide web and email services for users accessing shared resources. Abuse of server resources, either intentional or unintentional, including but not limited to, improper coding, scripts using high resources, excessive server connections, bandwidth usage, and bulk email, may lead to disruption of service availability and/or suspension of your account. FastWebEngine reserves the right to review your account for excessive usage of CPU, disk space and other resources that may cause excessive server loads and/or a violation of our Acceptable Use Policy. FastWebEngine reserves the right to block access to your service availability due to excessive resource usage. Account holders that violate our Acceptable Use Policy may be suspended without notice.

  6. Illegal Use
    FastWebEngine services may only be used for lawful purposes. Transmission, distribution or storage of any material in violation of applicable law or governmental regulation is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to, material protected by copyright, trademark or other intellectual property used without proper authorization. This also includes, but is not limited to, any material or conduct that may be judged as threatening, harassment, fraud or abuse or violates export control laws. Using a website for phishing or viral attacks is illegal and strictly prohibited. Any account found in breach of this condition will be terminated and reported immediately. FastWebEngine will cooperate fully with legal authorities in the investigation of any suspected misuse or illegal use of services. Any use of our system to engage in software piracy or other violations of law will result in account suspension and will be immediately reported to the appropriate authorities. In any such event FastWebEngine reserves the right to disclose your personal contact details to any law enforcement agency in order to further investigate such matters.

  7. Security
    Violations of system or network security are prohibited and may result in criminal and civil liability. FastWebEngine will pursue legal action to the fullest extent for any security violation of the FastWebEngine network. This includes, but is not limited to: gaining or attempting to gain unauthorized access to servers or services; gaining or attempting to gain unauthorized use of data, systems or networks; attempting to test the vulnerability of a system or to breach security measures without proper authorization of FastWebEngine, the system or network owner; monitoring of data or traffic on any system or network without proper authorization of FastWebEngine, the system or network owner; any interference with service provided to any user, host or network through activities such as mail-bombing, viruses, spam, scripts, or any deliberate attempt to overload the system.

Catch-All E-mail Accounts

FastWebEngine does not provide or allow "catch-all" email accounts. This is considered an outdated practice of providing a single email address that will accept any email addressed to your domain (e.g. anything@yourdomain.com >>> catchall@yourdomain.com). This service allows for potential bandwidth restricting surges of Spam messages.
