Legal rights

Landshark Hosting supports free speech on the Internet, and will not suspend or cancel a customer’s account simply because it disagrees with the views expressed by the customer.

Server Resources

This paragraph refers to shared hosting only. Running programs in the background on a Landshark Hosting server without prior written authorization, or running chat rooms, Internet Relay Chat (IRC) or IRC Bots, more then 1000 emails a day and the like are not acceptable uses of Landshark Hosting servers. Further, any usage of fifteen percent (15%) or more of our system resources is an undue burden on our system and is unacceptable. If your usage ever exceeds fifteen percent (15%) of system resources, your account may be terminated immediately and without prior notice. In addition any domain that exceeds ten gigabytes of bandwidth traffic can be terminated without prior notice. Usage of scripts or other utilities to direct pointed domain names to subdirectories is not permitted and is grounds for termination of the account.
