Should we discover that a customer is performing bulk mail runs on our shared systems that exceeds the limit communicated in 3.1.4 above, regardless of whether it constitutes SPAM or not, Practical Web Solutions will deactivate the user’s account.
Custom server-side CGI scripts are to be run only by users with the appropriate package types (in Practical Web Solutions’s case the Web Hosting Basic package or higher). No user may run CGI scripts for the benefit of external sites or services. The use of system resource limits is intended to prevent runaway CGI scripts on an unattended server. Also, processes with large memory footprints or hungry CPU requirements will incur swapping and other slowdowns that cause problems for every site on the server.
Interactive Web applications, commonly known as “chat”, are not allowed on Practical Web Solutions’s shared systems. These applications are better placed on dedicated servers.
MySQL databases are provided to users of the Web Hosting Basic package and higher with the following rules in place:
The use of “cron jobs” (processes that are run automatically at certain times, in accordance with a “crontab” file set up by each user), are allowed on Practical Web Solutions servers, subject to the following conditions and restrictions:
