Choosing a host can be a tricky business. Many people go with brand names like “GoDaddy” or “HostGator”, or by the cheapest price, and both choices can quickly lead to major problems, and you can easily get lost by the vastness of their numbers. Your site should be hosted by a stable, reputable company with fast connections and weekly backups. For a small amount of money, there is an enormous difference in the quality, security and service of hosts.

Intellectual property rights

Interference with service
There shall be no attempt to gain unauthorized access to our systems or accounts, disrupt service or network connectivity, misuse our facilities, or create fraudulent accounts.
In the event that any virus or destructive element is found or furnished with any content, the customer will use their best efforts upon learning that such situation exists, to immediately eliminate the virus or destructive element. Customer will notify us as to the existence of any such virus or destructive element immediately upon discovery.
Junk email (SPAM, flames, and mail-bombs)
Our servers and our hosted domains may not be the source, intermediary, or destination address involved in the transmission of junk email, nor will they be listed in any junk email message. The use of our servers to send or relay junk email is prohibited.
We define “junk email” to be a mass unsolicited message in any medium. Violation will result in immediate termination of all services without refund. Fines and legal action may be imposed. Any customer who is repeatedly flamed/mail-bombed or attracts such behavior will be asked to leave.
Our services are provided for end users only. No sub-hosting or resale of any services, for fee or for free, is permitted without the express consent of us.
Data Transfer – We do not meter or explicitly limit site traffic (bandwidth). Bandwidth is not billed, but is drawn from a common pool shared by all accounts. Data Transfer is the amount of traffic to your web site which we allow you to have free of charge (sometimes referred to as bandwidth). Craig Com measure their traffic volume in the amount of data transferred, as opposed to number of hits or impressions. This is because a web site with, for example, large graphic files or complicated applications like real audio or video will utilize a lot more bandwidth than a simple, text-based site.
Our traffic allowances are very generous by industry standards (just check other hosts). Less than 1% of our customers even come close to our allowances.
CGI, FreeCGI, SSI, Miva, PHP, database services, and other CPU-intensive features utilize server CPU-time which is drawn from a common pool shared by all users on a particular system. Any site which monopolizes the CPU, causes disruption of service, or negatively impacts server performance will not be allowed. We reserve the right to immediately terminate any harmful CGI process.
Any account which, due to extraordinary resource utilization, negatively impacts other customers, will be required to reduce resource utilization, or move to a dedicated server environment.
There are numerous federal, state and international laws regulating the use of the Internet. We will not hesitate to initiate criminal prosecution and/or cooperate with government agencies relating to abuse of our services or systems.
Refusal of service
We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone at its sole discretion.
