This AUP governs the use of KellerNetwork's web hosting service. Violation of this AUP may result in suspension or termination of your service. In the event of a dispute between you and KellerNetwork regarding the interpretation of this AUP, KellerNetwork's interpretation, in its reasonable commercial judgment, shall govern.
The following is the entire Acceptable User Policy ('AUP') agreement between KellerNetwork and the personal or corporate account holder. KellerNetwork provides World Wide Web Hosting, web design and script installation. KellerNetwork has certain legal and ethical responsibilities consisting with the use of its servers and equipment involved in these services. KellerNetwork's general policy is to act as a provider of Internet presence. KellerNetwork reserves the rights to suspend or cancel a customer's access to any or all services provided by KellerNetwork when we decide that the account has been inappropriately used.
What is Appropriate Usage?
KellerNetwork is designed to serve the web hosting needs of small, independently owned and operated businesses in a single country. It is not appropriate to use our services to support large enterprises or internationally based businesses with a sustained demand that places undue burden on our systems or negatively impacts use by small, independently owned and operated businesses.
KellerNetwork is a shared web hosting service, which means that a number of customers' web sites and other email or storage services are hosted from the same server. KellerNetwork uses abuse controls to help ensure that use of our services does not adversely affect the performance of our system or other customers' sites. It is not appropriate to use an account primarily as an online storage space or for archiving electronic files.
KellerNetwork strives to provide you with the resources you need. By providing plans with Unlimited resources, this allows you to build your site to function the way you need without running into roadblocks or limits. Though KellerNetwork offers Unlimited Resources such as Unlimited Bandwidth, KellerNetwork may limit or throttle resources if they become excessive or in violation of this AUP. Prior to any action resulting in limiting or throttling of your resources, KellerNetwork will contact you and offer aid in a resolution. Continued excessive resource usage may result in resource limits being applied with overage charges, throttling, or account suspension.
If you use your services consistently with the Terms of Service and these paragraphs, your site can grow as large as necessary to meet your small business needs, but to ensure a great experience for all, we will place some constraints on how fast you can grow. The vast majority of our customers' sites grow at rates well within our rules, but our abuse controls may cause a brief delay while we evaluate if expansion is appropriate for your particular plan.
KellerNetwork Customers may not initiate the following (below). KellerNetwork will contact you if abuse is detected to help resolve any issues. Continued abuse may result in account suspension or termination without a refund.
a) Use of any kind of distributed computing software, including but not limited to SETI@home, Node Zero and Folding@home.
b) Run any type of interactive real-time chat applications that require server resources. Remotely-hosted services are fully allowed.
c) Run stand-alone, unattended server-side processes at any point in time on the server. This includes any and all daemons.
d) Run any software that interfaces with an IRC (Internet Relay Chat) network.
e) Run any file sharing, bit torrent or other P2P network services, client or server software.
f) Run any gaming servers.
In most cases, if you use our services consistently with our Terms of Service, visitors to your web site will be able to download and view as much content from your site as they like. However, in certain circumstances, our server processing power, server memory, or abuse controls could limit downloads from your site. Bandwidth is also reset every month.
You are allocated a monthly bandwidth allowance. This allowance varies depending on the hosting package you purchase. Should your account pass the allocated amount we reserve the right to suspend the account until the start of the next allocation, suspend the account until more bandwidth is purchased at an additional fee, suspend the account until you upgrade to a higher level of package, terminate the account and/or charge you an additional fee for the overages. Unused transfer in one month cannot be carried over to the next month.
