Terms of Service
Throughout this page, Centurian.net Limited will be referenced as Centurian.net
1) Web Hosting
1.1) Centurian.net reserves the right to suspend or cancel a customer’s access to any or all services provided by Centurian.net, where Centurian.net decides that the account has been inappropriately used. Centurian.net reserves the right to refuse service and /or access to its servers to anyone.
1.2) Centurian.net offer unlimited web space and bandwidth with some account types. By this, we mean unlimited space for legitimate web site content and bandwidth for visitors to view it. All files on a domain must be part of the active website and linked to the site. Sites should not contain any backups, downloads, or other non-web based content. We will treat all password protected archive (e.g. zip and rar) files as unacceptable. MP3 and other large multimedia files are not web-based content. Centurian.net offers a streaming media service for this type of content.
1.3) Scripts on the site must be designed to produce web-based content, and not to use the server as an application server. Using the server to generate large volumes of email from a database is an example of activity that is not allowed. Scripts should not attempt to manipulate the timeouts on servers. These are set at the present values to ensure the reliability of the server. Sites that reset these do so because they are resource intensive, and adversely affect server performance and are therefore not allowed.
1.4) Centurian.net will disable any domain that fails to adhere to the following criteria as soon as we are made aware, in line with current working practices:
1.4.1) The primary purpose of any site must be to provide web-based content to viewers. Files on the site must be linked to the web site.
1.4.2) The primary purpose of any script must be to produce a web page. Scripts that send a single email based upon user entered information, or update a database are acceptable. Scripts that send bulk email or perform processor intensive database processes are not allowed. All outgoing mail is monitored and filtered.
1.4.3) Sites must not contain Warez, illegal or copyright material. The onus is on you the customer to prove that you own the rights to publish material, not for Fasthosts to prove that you do not.
1.4.4) Sites must not contain MP3 files, as they do not represent active web content. Other multimedia files are acceptable if they are configured to stream to the client rather than download (Please see section 1.2 of this policy).
1.4.5) Sites must not contain password protected archive (e.g. zip or rar) files, or data back ups.
1.4.6) Sites must not contain pornographic or other lewd material. Adult Material includes all pornography, erotic images, or otherwise lewd or obscene content. The designation of “adult material” is left entirely to the discretion of Centurian.net.
1.4.7) Sites must not use excessive amounts of server resources. These include bandwidth, processor utilization and / or disk space. Please see the ‘High Resource Use Policy’ in the General Terms and Conditions.
1.4.8) Sites must not contain scripts that attempt to access privileged server resources, or other sites on the same server.
