The Terms of Service ("TOS")This Terms of Service ("TOS") sets forth the terms and conditions of your use of Pallada Web Service web hosting services, e-commerce and other Internet-related services.
In this Agreement "you" and "your" refer to the customer and "we", "us" and "our" refer to 'Pallada Web Service'.
By selecting our service(s) you have agreed to establish an account with us for such services.
By using the service(s) provided by us under this TOS, you acknowledge that you have read fully and agree to be bound by all terms and conditions of this TOS, and any pertinent rules or policies that are or may be published by Pallada Web Service.
1. Use of Our Services
To ensure the integrity and efficiency of all services provided by Pallada Web Service, the observation of conditions of use for the following services are vital to the quality of service we offer each account holder that utilises the same web hosting server:
- Server space and bandwidth
You may occupy only the amount of disk space that are allocated to you according to the service plan you have subscribed to and utilize no more than the network bandwidth that is allotted by us.
Additional fees, specified in the web hosting services page, will be charged for exceeding the disk space and/or network bandwidth allowance of your selected plan.
However, if the resource usage is excessive and causing disruption to other account holders on the same server, we reserve the right to deactivate the account pending your cooperation and resolution.
- CGI scripts
You are free to use any scripts you wish provided they do not affect the normal operations of the server. CGI scripts can be resource intensive and because a web hosting server is shared with other users, we must limit how much of the system resources can be used by any one account on a shared server. Scripts that are commonly known for causing server disruption include large cgi-based message forums, auctions, and banner exchanges.
In the event a script affects normal server and/or administrative operations, we reserve the right to disable the account pending your cooperation and resolution.
Pallada Web Service will be the sole determinant of what constitutes degraded server performance.
- Unauthorized daemons and background processes
An unauthorized daemon is any process that runs continuously in the background that is not started or operated by Pallada Web Service.
Only daemons that have the express written permission of Pallada Web Service are permitted to operate on the our servers.
However, if any of these daemons start to exhibit operating problems, we reserve the right to terminate the daemon immediately and restrict its ability to restart.
Any account found to be operating any programs and/or daemons that open listening sockets on our server are expressly forbidden and will be terminated at our discretion.
Pallada Web Service does not allow bots of any kind to be operated on our web hosting servers. This includes, but is not limited to, IRC servers, IRC bots, proxies, anonymizers, and web transversal spiders.
- Ddos Tools/Attacks
Pallada Web Service does not allow any kind of Ddos tools to be operated on our web hosting servers. This includes, but is not limited to, Flooders, botnets.
Ddos Attacks on VPS or Dedicated Services will incur a fee if seen to be very large and damaging for other customers.
If found doing such things, the 7 day money-back guarantee is voided.
- Chat Servers
Chat Servers of any kind are strictly prohibited.
Chat scripts, especially CGI and/or PHP scripts, have proven to be disruptive on web hosting servers and can hinder the performance of normal delivery for other account holders.
For this reason chat scripts/clients, that are not Java based or hosted by a third party provider, are not permitted on any of our web hosting servers.
- SSI Calls
All SSI calls should be made from files that are in accordance with established naming conventions.
This means all SSI calls should originate from files that are named with the .shtml or .shtm file extensions. Pallada Web Service reserves the right to disable any SSI that is not being called from a file with the .shtml or .shtm extension.
- Mailing Lists
All web hosting packages include access to the pre-installed EZ-MLM mailing list software. It is important that you use such tool accordingly.
If you are sending to large mailing list (exceeding 1000 addresses) you should contact Pallada Web Service requesting permission to send the mailing through our servers prior to sending any messages.
Should such a large mailing disrupt normal services or create unacceptable server loads, the account associated with the mailing risks termination.
- Bulletin Boards
Due to their use of flat files instead of databases, Pallada Web Service does not allow the use of UBB or YABB bulletin boards.
Use of these boards for large or very active forums, results in system performance degradation, and cannot be allowed in our shared hosting environment.
We suggest using VBulletin or phpBB or Invision Power Board as a more efficient, database-driven alternative to these bulletin boards.
- Sharing of your account resources
In general, we do not restrict you from sharing your account resources with other non-account holders.
However, if you choose to give away and/or sell any service provided by Pallada Web Service, within or in addition to your account, we reserve the right to contact you to request for suspension/reduction on your account usage if the resources being used are above and beyond the reasonable usage of an account on a shared hosting server (specified by us).
Pallada Web Service has agreed to host/service you and your account only.
All users permitted access to the services provided by us, via your account, are also bound by this Terms of Service.
If these users violate the Terms of Service your account would be placed in jeopardy and at risk of termination.
- Excessive Resource Usage and/or Abuse
Any account that affects the normal operation of any of the services provided by Pallada Web Service including, but not limited to, administrative tasks, technical support, database services, server access, network speed, content or email delivery, may be deactivated in an effort to restore normal operations.
In the event of account deactivation, we remain the final authority in determining whether or not the account will be reactivated.
The severity of the violation, as well as the account holder's cooperation and ability to prevent future abuses, will be considered by Pallada Web Service when determining whether or not the account will be reactivated.
- Back-Up Files and Processing
Pallada Web Service does not hold regular back-up files for its servers, clients are expected to keep their own local copy.
-Account Terminations (Backups)
If your account has been terminated due to non-payment of invoices or abusing our network and you wish for your files/databases to be returned from our backup servers there is a $11.99 charge for this service. We only store backups for 30 days after the Due Date. Unfortunately if a client requires his backup after 30 days from the due date we will not be able to provide it.
This backup service excludes VPS Services and Dedicated Servers.
