a) Shared/Reseller Resource Policy
Fastvbox maintains strict account/server ratios in order to maintain a high level of service for everyone. You may at anytime use all of the allocated space/bandwidth for your account as long as it does not contain any of the content drafted in section 4 of the TOS. Should you exceed this, your account will be suspended and you can either choose to remove excess files, upgrade your account, pay for bandwidth overages, or wait until your next month for your bandwidth to be reset. .

In rare cases, Fastvbox may find a customer to be using server / network resources to such an extent that he or she may jeopardize server performance and resources for other customers. In such instances, Fastvbox reserves the right to impose the High Resource User Policy for the consideration of all customers.

Fastvbox reserves the right to discontinue / suspend services without notice should any hosting account exceeds CPU, database, and network thresholds on our servers which may cause service interruption to other customers. Users may not initiate the following:

Use 10% or more of any system resources for longer than 90 seconds. There are numerous activities that could cause such problems; these include: CGI scripts, FTP, PHP, HTTP, etc.

Run any type of interactive real-time chat applications that require server resources. Remotely-hosted services are fully allowed.

Run stand-alone, unattended server-side processes at any point in time on the server. This includes any and all daemons, such as IRCD.

Run any software that interfaces with an IRC (Internet Relay Chat) network.

Run any gaming servers such as counter-strike, half-life, battlefield1492, etc (should you want to do that you may purchase a dedicated server, contact sales@Fastvbox for more info)

If you initiate any of the above, your account will be suspended.

Bandwidth Usage:

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.

b) Dedicated/VPS Resource Policy
Bandwidth:

Overage fees will apply to any service utilizing more than it’s assigned bandwidth allocation, except for those services advertised/sold as “UNMETERED”. Overages will be calculated based on overall amount of GigaBytes (GB) transferred in a monthly period, unless a service is sold based on Megabits per Second (MBPS). Services sold by MBPS, will be calculated via the industry standard 95% method, unless specified in contract otherwise. MRTG or other bandwidth reporting is available upon request for all services. Client is responsible for all usage, and any corresponding overages fees, that result from a service that may be hacked and/or flooding. Fastvbox may require a deposit should a client utilize/require large amounts of bandwidth beyond their standard bandwidth allocation.

Port Usage:

Basic Dedicated & Co-Located servers are installed on 100MBPS unthrottled ports, unless service is sold as a specified port size (ie…100MBPS UNMETERED) or specified/requested as a capped port. Fastvbox reserves the right to monitor network usage, and if a service significantly exceeds average usage, to throttle the available speed to conserve network resources and to prevent any large billing anomalies. This will generally not include short spikes in usage, but will include, but not be limited to, sustained transfers of significantly larger than average amounts of bandwidth. If at any time any client’s data transfer rate affects other Fastvbox clientele, Fastvbox reserves the right to throttle and/or disconnect the service causing such a problem.

Filtering:

Fastvbox reserves the right to block/filter or throttle ports and/or ip address ranges, at its discretion. This may include, for example, blocking Port 6667 (IRC), denying access from a known-spamming IP address range, or limiting the speed of point-to-point file-sharing programs (Kazaa, Limewire, Donkey, etc…). This may also include giving priority to certain traffic types, such as Voice-over-IP (VOIP) phone call transmissions.

Unmetered:

Services advertised/sold as “UNMETERED” will not be subject to bandwidth overage fees. Bandwidth is supplied from a shared pool, and is not supplied as guaranteed/dedicated bandwidth. Burstable usage of the UNMETERED service/port is permitted, however, a service that has heavy sustained usage may have their port capped or be asked to upgrade to a dedicated service plan. UNMETERED service is supplied on a “best-effort” basis—which may result in some slowdowns during peak traffic times.
