Fair Usage: Game Servers

  • No game server shall exceed a full CPU core (1.0 load average) or more for an extended period of time. An extended period of time will generally mean one (1) hour, but will depend upon the load average and level of impact on other customers sharing the physical server. Disruptive load may result in a reboot, shutdown, and/or suspension of the service.
  • Game servers should only store files related to the game. They are not meant for storing personal files, backups, etc. If your storage usage becomes disruptive to other game servers on the same node we have the right to suspend your service until a resolution is reached.

Fair Usage: Web Hosting

  • No more than 5 GB of a web hosting account can be used to store music, video or other multimedia files.
  • No more than 5 GB of a web hosting account can be used to store any archive or backup containing the complete contents and structure of a data storage medium.
  • No more than 5 GB of a web hosting account can be used to store databases and database dumps.
