You may cancel at anytime. To cancel your account, please contact Customer Service at support@ProNetHosts.com.

If the client has not yet received email confirmation of account cancellation, then the account remains active, and you will continue to be invoiced.

 

Should a Client have a balance due at the time of cancellation, this balance must be paid in full. Cancellation does not absolve Client of any outstanding financial obligations.

Abuse of Traffic and Bandwidth:
ProNetHosts's unlimited plan users are offered unlimited disk space for their Hosting web sites. The intention of ProNetHosts is to provide a large space to serve web documents, not an off site storage area for electronic files. All (90%) of your web pages (html) must be 'linked' with files (.GIF, .JPEG, etc.) stored on ProNetHosts's server. Web sites that are found to contain either/or no html documents, a large number of unlinked files are subject to warning, suspension or cancellation at the discretion of ProNetHosts management. Also, upload of MP3/MPEG such video/music related files are strictly prohibited, unless for personal site music usage and not for users to take this advantage to provide MP3/MPEG's download services. Any customer who violates ProNetHosts's Policies in abusing either space/site transfer will be notified and given 2 days to remedy the problem. If the problem is not resolved within the allotted period, the client will be billed for the overages.

To maintain the integrity of our service the following limitations apply:

Sites with banners, graphics or cgi scripts running from their domain used on other domains. Sites with picture galleries (This is any site where 50% of the files transferred is graphics) Sites offering download files or archives. (This is any site where 50% or more of there monthly traffic is from file downloads). Sites using more than 30% of system resources for longer than 60 seconds. Sites running multimedia files (QuickTime, Real Audio, Real Video, MP3).

ProNetHosts will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision.

Email Policy:
ProNetHosts may not be the source, intermediary, or destination address involved in the transmission of any unsolicited email, email bombs, hate email, or any mass email. Your email account may not be referenced as originator, intermediary, or reply-to address of such email. We consider mass email any email message sent to more than 25 email addresses or more than 10 news groups.


CGI Scripts Policy:
Each account comes with its own cgi-bin. You are free to use any CGI scripts you wish, however we reserve the right to disable any CGI script that effects normal server operation or service to other ProNetHosts customers. You will be notified in 24 hours about offending cgi script. No chat room or similar scripts allowed.


Chat Policy:
ProNetHosts does not allow chat rooms using mIRC. Other chat rooms are like the Chat program that comes with Cpanel default installed is fine. You can however link your site to a chat provider. Some examples of chat providers are: www.humanclick.com, www.liveperson.com, and www.livehumanhelp.com.


Traffic Policy:
ProNetHosts allows for very generous traffic, and most sites never exceed 10GIG per month, unless they offer shareware, sound, video, image and multimedia archives, are mirror sites or any site whose primary purpose is file distribution. ProNetHosts customers are discouraged from storing any files that cause excessive traffic on ProNetHosts servers. Please contact ProNetHosts Technical Support team for more information. Again, 99% of the sites do not fall into this category and never reach our traffic limits.

 

We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason not prohibited by law. Also we reserve the right to terminate service to any customer for any reason not prohibited by law.
