Mchenry Web Design will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of  this provision.

 

All accounts

We have found most our customers to stay within "reasonable limits."  However, to maintain the integrity of our service, we must state the following restrictions:

To all our accounts applies the following restrictions:

  • Multiple hosts resolving at an IP or domain name that we provide. 
  • Sites with cgi's running from their domain used on other domains. 
  • Sites using more than 20% of system resources.
  • Mchenry Web Design will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision.

Spamming, or the sending of unsolicited email, from a Mchenry Web Design account or using an email address or domain that is maintained as a Mchenry Web Design account as reference is STRICTLY prohibited. As deligated by our backbone provider, any sites using spam or selling of spam related software or bulk email content will be closed.

Mchenry Web Design will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision. 

Spamming WILL get your account terminated.

 

Chat Rooms

We do not allow clients to install their own chat rooms. These tend to be a large drain on system resources and we cannot allow it as an account option.
