Acceptable Use Policy

By using our services, you agree to comply with our policies. We expect you to have a basic knowledge of how the Internet functions, the types of uses which are generally acceptable, and the types of uses which are to be avoided. Common sense is the best guide as to what is considered acceptable use. The following are unacceptable uses: Illegality in any form, including but not limited to activities such as unauthorized distribution or copying of copyrighted software, harassment, fraud, drug dealing, hardcore adult content (legal content allowed on VPS only), and other illegal activities.

Spamming
Directly or indirectly transmitting or supporting the transmission of unsolicited mail messages, including, without limitation, commercial advertising and informational announcements, is expressly prohibited. A user shall not use another site’s mail server to relay mail without the express permission of the site.

Charges
All recurring charges shall be due and payable in advance on the day of the month you signed up on for every month of the year. Invoices or notices of invoices for recurring charges are issued as a courtesy. For credit card billing, all invoices will automatically be charged at the time of invoicing.

Non-recurring charges including excess bandwidth usage and overages will be due and payable upon Customer’s receipt of invoice or notice of invoice. Customer is responsible for monitoring transfer or bandwidth consumption and other services provided while maintaining awareness of the applicable charges due. Bandwidth overages are charged at $1 per each GB used over the allowed limit of the package. Bandwidth for VPS packages is monitored at the network interface card while bandwidth for dedicated servers is monitored at the switch port. Bandwidth usage shown in control panels (i.e. Cpanel) is not an accurate number for total data transfer and should not be used to compare with the actual usage.

During the investigation 4TopHost.com may restrict Customer’s access in order to prevent further possible unauthorized activity.
