Terms of Hostenol

By accepting Hostenol’s Terms of Service, you also consent to our Privacy Notice and Data Use Policy. Please take a look for more information on our Privacy Notice and Data Use Policy.

All customers of Hostenol, who sign up for taking Hostenol web hosting services, accept to comply with Hostenol Terms of Service (TOS). The vision of the TOS is to assure customers are using Hostenol services with due respect to the preferences of other internet users and in compliance with the specifications of the Hostenol network conditions. The terms are not exhaustive, and Hostenol holds the right to add, delete, or change any prerequisite of its TOS at any time without notification, effective upon either posting the revised TOS to www.hostenol.com or information of the modified TOS. Any objections about a customer’s violation of the TOS will need to be sent to abuse@hostenol.com. Please take a look at our abuse terms below for more details on the abuse policy. When you conform to the terms, you also agree to our billing terms. Except when expressly consented to the contrary in writing by an empowered representative of Hostenol, this TOS supersedes any other agreement with Hostenol, whether written, oral, by conduct, or contrarily.

Server Resources

Any website that uses a high volume of server resources (such as, but not limited to, CPU time, memory usage, and web resources) will be given the possibility to reduce the resources used to an adequate level. Hostenol will be the sole authority of what is considered to be a high server usage level. Any Web Hosting account adversely affecting server performance or network integrity will be shut down without prior notification.

Any script that utilises large amounts of resources is not permitted, such as Proxy scripts, bots, rapid leech scripts, chatting or chat room scripts, file or image hosting scripts, PTC (Paid-to-click) site scripts, mail-bombers or spam scripts, auto-blog scripts and plugins. Such scripts will be fired immediately with no prior warning, and account owners will not be qualified for a refund. We offer shared hosting; therefore, any script you work on that will absorb large amounts of resources negatively affects other clients on your server, so please use common judgment when using a script. If you are uncertain of any script, please contact Hostenol Sales or Support to ensure the script is passed before running the script in your account.

Any account should not practice more than 25% CPU consistently for higher than 5 minutes. If you consistently utilise 25% or more CPU, you will need to upgrade to the next possible hosting plan. Suppose you are using a hosting plan and are still using 25% or more CPU consistently. In that case, you have most likely outgrown a shared hosting ecosystem and should therefore obtain a virtual private server (VPS) or dedicated server that suit your needs adequately.

Any account rejected or terminated due to violation of our Terms of Service will not be qualified for a refund, including during our 30-day money-back guarantee time.

Spam/Bulk Mail

Hostenol has a “No Tolerance” policy for spamming and bulk mailing. Sending undesirable, bulk or commercial messages over the internet or text messaging (known as “spamming”) is forbidden, despite whether it overloads a server or interrupts service Hostenol customers. Hostenol does not allow CAN-SPAM acquiescent bulk email or consider emails, not Spam, because you include an Opt-Out announcement. 

Suppose a Hostenol server IP get blacklisted due to spamming by a users domain name hosted on our servers. In that case, the violator will face immediate termination, and no refunds will be given. Hostenol reserves the power to determine what constitutes a violation of this provision in its sole and absolute responsibility.

Any customer found to be spamming may submit a spam cleanup fee from $200 – $500 depending on the condition and level of cleanup required. Any account rejected or terminated due to spamming will not be qualified for a refund.

Disclaimer of Service Attacks

This includes conducting a DDoS/DoS or taking part in a DDoS/DoS from any Hostenol account. Any account discovered actively and knowingly transferring abusive traffic will be instantly suspended and possibly eliminated with no refunds given.

Promoting/Offering/Selling DDoS for hire assistance is not tolerated and will cause direct suspension/termination.
