  • Bandwidth Usage: Bluescathosting.com offers a generous amount of data transfer per month. Bandwidth is calculated on a recurring 30 days. Sites that use over the given limit in 30 days will automatically be suspended until the cycle is reset. You can request that your site be allowed to go over your bandwidth limit, however, a $1.50/per GB overage charge will be applied to your account. You can upgrade your plan within seven (7) days of the end of the month to avoid bandwidth overages.

     
  • Excessive Resource Usage Policy: *Applies to virtual accounts. Resources are defined as bandwidth and/or processor utilization. A website is considered using "Excessive amounts of resources" when it monopolizes the resources available using 10% or more of system resources for longer than 30 seconds. There are numerous problems that could cause such problems, this includes: cgi scripts, FTP, HTTP, etc. A site that consumes over the account limit of bandwidth is also considered "excessive resources". This policy is only implemented in extreme circumstances and is intended to prevent the misuse of our servers. The client whom is using "excessive resources" will be asked to upgrade his/her package to one of our dedicated server packages. Bluescathosting.com will be the sole and final arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this policy.

     
  • Upstream AUP Violation: Accounts that house insecure scripts which result in an upstream AUP violation will be charged a one time fee of $9.95 for cleanup and reactivation. If your account causes a second upstream AUP violation as a result of the same script, your account will then be subject to termination at the discretion of Bluescathosting.com.

     
  • No "Spam": UCE/UBE or "Spam" originating from a server located on our network or associated with a Bluescathosting.com server is not tolerated.
