"UNLIMITED" USAGE POLICIES AND DEFINITIONS

  1. What "Unlimited" means. Beyond Hosting LLC does not set an arbitrary limit or cap on the amount of resources a single Subscriber can use. In good faith and subject to these Terms, Beyond Hosting LLC makes every commercially reasonable effort to provide its Subscribers with all the storage and bandwidth resources needed to power their web sites successfully, as long as the Subscriber's use of the service complies with these Terms. By not setting limits on key resources, we are able to provide simple, consistent pricing to our Subscribers as they grow their websites. As a result, a typical website may experience periods of great popularity and resulting increased storage without experiencing any associated increase in hosting charges.
  2. What "Unlimited" DOES NOT mean. Beyond Hosting LLC employs complex mechanisms to protect its Subscribers and systems from abuse. Beyond Hosting LLC's offering of "unlimited" services is not intended to allow the actions of a single or few Subscribers to unfairly or adversely impact the experience of other Subscribers. Beyond Hosting LLC's service is a shared hosting service, which means that multiple Subscriber web sites are hosted from the same server and share server resources. Beyond Hosting LLC's service is designed to meet the typical needs of small business and home business website Subscribers in the United States. It is NOT intended to support the sustained demand of large enterprises, internationally based businesses, or non-typical applications better suited to a dedicated server. Beyond Hosting LLC will make every commercially reasonable effort to provide additional resources to Subscribers who are using their website(s) consistent with these Terms, including moving Subscribers to newer and bigger shared servers as necessary. However, in order to ensure a consistent and quality experience for all Subscribers, Beyond Hosting LLC does place automated safeguards to protect against any one site growing too quickly and adversely impacting the system until Beyond Hosting LLC can evaluate said sites resource needs.
  3. Unlimited Hosting Space. Beyond Hosting LLC does not set arbitrary limits on the amount of disk space a Subscriber can use for the Subscriber's website, nor does Beyond Hosting LLC charge additional fees based on an increased amount of storage used, provided the Subscriber's use of storage complies with these Terms. Please note, however, that the Beyond Hosting LLC service is designed to host websites . Beyond Hosting LLC does NOT provide unlimited space for online storage, backups, or archiving of electronic files, documents, log files, etc., and any such prohibited use of the Services will result in the termination of Subscriber's account, with or without notice.
  4. Unlimited File Transfer. Beyond Hosting LLC does not set arbitrary limits on the amount of visitor traffic a web site can receive or on the amount of content a Subscriber can upload to his/her/its website in a given month, nor does Beyond Hosting LLC charge additional fees based on increased use of bandwidth, as long as the Subscriber's use of the Services complies with these Terms. In most cases, a Subscriber's web site will be able to support as much traffic as the Subscriber can legitimately acquire. However, Beyond Hosting LLC reserves the right to limit processor time, bandwidth, or processes in cases where it is necessary to prevent negatively impacting other Subscribers.
  5. Unlimited Domain Hosting. Beyond Hosting LLC does not set arbitrary limits on the number of domain names a Subscriber can associate with the Subscriber's web hosting account.
  6. Downtime is defined as the time Beyond Hosting servers are not functional. This does NOT apply to client-related errors, such as website errors, software related issues or the failure of a client's Internet Service Provider (ISP). Downtime is logged and apparent server-wide.
  7. Downtime account credit is based on the following calculations:
    24 (hours) x 365 (days) = 8760 (hours)
    359.88 / 8760 = 0.041
    Essentially, 8760 is how many hours are in a year. Based off of the Ultimate Hosting package, which costs $359.88/yr, the average running cost is 4 cents per hour, rounded.
    For every hour that Beyond Hosting servers are down, effected clients are credited 4 cents ($0.04).
