TV or radio
File Storage &/or file sharing
Mail Sites or Mailing List Sites
NOTE 1: Music and video sites require ffmeg which is available only on vps plans. Hosted sites without ffmeg attempting to play music or video, including streaming sites, movie download sites, webinar and any other type of site with video will have slow loading times, or broken play due to overloading a system not designed to support these types of files.
NOTE 2: You may embed video files from websites that allow embedding. In this instance the video is hosted on a site with ffmeg and your players on your site will play from that site using their platform. Businesses wishing to show product videos on their websites should upload the video to sites that allow users to store files for viewing or select a vps plan.
NOTE 3: UNLIMITED means unlimited bandwidth (visitors to your website and no quota limits on days, hours etc), diskspace (storage in files in your cpanel files). Depending on your chosen plan it can also include unlimited databases, ftp accounts, emails (and mailing lists), free scripts to install and unlimited folders to place them in per domain you host, and unlimited domains hosted, unlimited addon domains, unlimited subdomains.

NOTE 5: Chat scripts may be installed on your websites for admin conversations with clients and customers. You may NOT have a website that is solely for chat, or a website like a dating site or similar where users will chat online. VPS is the only hosting type that will support online user chat services with high amounts of users. If you intend to have a high level of users chatting, choose vps hosting. If you wish to install chat to speak to your potential clients we recommend unlimited hosting plans.
Section six – VPS Sites Virtual Private Server sites are able to host any and all types of websites provided that they do not breach terms set out above regarding International Laws, copyright Laws, Illegal or fraudulent usage, and are not a site type in our website types not allowed. VPS sites may host video, music, streaming, webinar, chat, file storage & file sharing & Cloud platforms, and any and ALL other site types.
Section seven – Email Accounts
1. You are personally responsible for the reputable behaviour of any person using any email account you have. Business who allow staff to have their own personal email accounts, eg: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org etc, must NOT allow other persons to set email passwords in their c panel. Your c panel password must remain private and secure at all times.
2. You may not sell email accounts, nor lease, or rent them.
3. You may not create any business, or website, or other, that allows use of your email accounts by any other persons or businesses for free or for profit.
4. You may not use your email account to SPAM and must only send emails to consenting receivers (NEVER add any email address to an email list without the consent of the owner of the email.)
5. You may not use your email accounts for illegal or fraudulent purposes.
6. You may not use your email accounts as a product or service to others. SPAM emails, or illegal activities from your email account CAN result in your email account being blackbanned by mail servers (not websites-hosting.com) or loss of your domain name due to cancellation of your ownership by ICAAN for breach of the terms and conditions of owning/using a domain name. IF your domain is cancelled you may also be banned from ever purchasing another domain and may have ALL of your domains cancelled and not just the email that was responsible. Please ensure ANY staff you give accounts to are aware of the rules. In extreme cases of illegal activity users may also be banned from IP providers (your internet provider) and may be blackbanned from using any provider.
YOUR IDENTITY IS IMPORTANT Section Eight – True and Correct Information
The purchase and registration of any domain name and any webhosting accounts requires true and correct information for the owner of the domains and/or webhosting account.
It will require your first and last name, an exact address (plus a Post Office box as a second address =not required), a phone number (not required).
Incorrect Ownership information, such as fake/incorrect names and addresses is grounds for cancellation of ownership of domains by ICAAN, and cancellation of webhosting by any webhost.
A domain name is a business name, in the same line as a standard business.
Use of incorrect names and addresses can result in another person claiming ownership and leave you with no proof regarding matching identity documents.
NOTE: All domains hosted at websites-hosting.com have FREE whois protection. This means your name, address and ALL personal details are hidden and securely private. Anyone searching for information on who owns the name &/or website will only be given contact details for websites-hosting.com. websites-hosting.com user information is kept in super secure servers. Please use the correct information.
Section Nine – C panel account users
1. You may not share your c panel account username or login password with any other person. C panel login information should be kept confidential. YOU MAY NOT GIVE C PANEL LOGIN DETAILS TO ANY ENTITY INCLUDING PERSONS WORKING ON YOUR WEBSITE AND SUPPORT PERSONEL FROM ANY TYPE OF BUSINESS. Your support workers can access any and all of your site files through ftp protocols and by being given user and password information for your database. NO SUPPORT WORKER NEEDS ACCESS TO YOUR C PANEL. Any worker insisting on c panel access should be avoided. Change your passwords regularly.
2. You may NOT write down, or keep a record of, your username passwords or any websites-hosting.com account information in any place that is able to be found or used by another, and you may not keep the information in the same place (separate your user name from your password!). You SHOULD use a CODE for your usernames and passwords IF you have them anywhere they MAY be discovered. Eg: If your username is something you can easily remember, like "chocolate" DONT write down "chocolate". Example: Username: chocolate. On your records *(use a memory prompt code) = REDvelvet (= a type of chocolate cake) or cHeEsCAkE or If your password is something like: Abc123def CHANGE it ON your record file to: 123aBCDEF and a code for WHERE you moved it that ONLY you know! eg: Abc123def becomes: 123aBCDEF213r explanation: 213r means you have moved block 2 to 1st position, block 1 to 2nd position, block 3 stayed where it was, r means CAPITALS become lower case, and lower case become CAPITALS. You could also us S for press SHIFT KEY. Eg: 123S>aBCDEF213 so your actual password would be: Abc123def If you forget you will eventually work it out, anyone else is going to have MAJOR problems. In the case of writing a username such as REDvelvet or cHeEsCAkE anyone attempting to work out your username will ASSUME that they will be working with THOSE words or changes to upper/lower case on the same keys, R to r, or keys directly left or right of those keys – e E, t T, OR the number position of that letter in the alphabet, A=1 B=2, OR the symbol that relates to that number 1=! 2=@ 3=# etc. It will take them THOUSANDS of years to go through every combination BEFORE they start working on another word choice…
READ THIS important information>>>
IT IS NOT ALRIGHT TO GIVE ANY PERSON ACCESS TO YOUR USER ACCOUNTS!!! EVER!!! Your user account not only has access to your website files (that a programmer may wish to work on to change codes, fix errors, or add customisations) but also has your PRIVATE information (address, phone numbers) and in some cases MAY have credit card or financial information. It also has OWNERSHIP details of your hosting account AND your domain names. ANY PERSON working in, or having access to, your C PANEL can CHANGE this information. They can LOCK YOU OUT of your control panel. They can TRANSFER ownership of your DOMAIN names to themselves (or anyone else), they can transfer ownership of your hosting account to themselves or anyone else. Information contained IN your C panel MAY be enough information for theives to STEAL YOUR IDENTITY and perpetrate identity theft, whereby they can obtain loans in your name, empty your bank accounts and seize control of your credit cards. Unscrupulous and dishonest programmers CAN add codes to your payment processor codes and DIVERT ALL PAYMENTS to themselves OR 30% of sales to themselves (in the hope that you wont notice). PLEASE NOTE WELL that MANY identity theives and scammers advertise themselves online as PHP programmers, script repairers and etc just to gain access to your PRIVATE INFORMATION which they then use themselves or SELL to others to use. Or they may add pages, or codes to your pages that you may never find. There are MANY types of websites that are ILLEGAL worldwide, such as racist or child pornography sites. YOU may inadvertantly give one of these types of groups a page with links to their materials OR even a full website that you don't even know is there! You may also be helping illegal groups to receive payments for their causes or recruit new members! You should also know that if your domain is HOSTING one of these pages/sites/links/content etc you can be removed from all search engines by the search engine provider AND face prosecution by law enforcement authorities. DO NOT GIVE YOUR USER PASSWORD INFORMATION TO ANYONE. And do NOT leave it in any place it can be found by anyone, including your children who may log in and innocently change names to THEIR NAMES and create a password you will never guess in a million years! If you believe your c panel has been breached IMMEDIATELY change your passwords AND if you feel it necessary NOTIFY websites-hosting.com support immediately! IF you have lost control of your c panel or user accounts contact websites-hosting.com support immediately or read the information below on this page. IF your domain names have already been transfered to another person or entity it is UNLIKELY that ANYONE will be able to restore them to you!
A WORD ON DOMAIN NAMES
Registered Trade Marks may exist in the case of some names you may wish to use or purchase. Where trademarks exist you are not permitted to purchase any domain with that name in it. Cancellations will in some cases be instant (in the case of highly recognised business/product names), or in others it may depend on the trademark owner or representative contacting either websites-hosting.com or ICAAN to prevent your use of their trademark registered name and/or identifying logos (etc). This ruling can also apply to the names of persons, ie: JohnSmith.com, and the name of recognised personalities or groups such as bands, eg: The Band. If your name actually is John Smith you automatically own the copyright and will be uneffected provided that your spellings are identical to your legal name. Do not assume that because you have a registered business name eg: ABCbooksellers, that there is not another business with the same name registered in another state or country that may have an existing trademark registered. Some examples of trademarked names would be: paypal, cpanel, coca cola etc.
NOTE 1: Generic terms cannot be trademarked, eg: the words: buy, sale, jeans, real estate, football. So, in example, you cannot use the name facebook, but you are permitted to use face and book provided that it does not FORM the word facebook. You cannot use NFLfootball because NFL is registered but you can use NFL if your website is NOT about football and the letters stand for other words, eg: Nebraska Finance & Loans.
NOTE 2: Some companies, businesses and celebrity personalites MAY CHOOSE to ignore that you have used their name in your domain IF after reviewing your website they find it to be beneficial to themselves, their product or their promotion, eg: Your website is a fan site for Band X and presents positive articles and promotes legal purchase of the bands products (music sales, merchandise and ticket sales/performances). You should be aware of TWO important issues,
1. You can be asked at any time to STOP using the domain name and THEY can request immediate transfer to themselves.
2. If your website becomes "valuable" (meaning that it is making money, or the domain name or website itself is valued at a high level, the rightful owner CAN enforce closure of your domain and transfer ownership to themselves. They are then legally able to use the domain themselves or sell it privately or to the public by auction.
NOTE 3: Purchase of domain names through websites-hosting.com is an automated process. We do not check for copyright or trademark restrictions in domain names when you order them or purchase them. The onus is upon you to check your legal rights to use the name before you purchase it. Section Ten – Domain Names The onus is upon all purchasers of domain names (you) to know the rules and regulations pertaining to the purchase and use of domain names as set out by ICAAN.
websites-hosting.com is a licenced domain registrar of domain names, and therefore an agent for ICAAN. We do not set the rules or regulations.
Section Eleven – Webhosting
1. websites-hosting.com assumes that all users have sufficient knowledge and capabilites to setup and use and host websites. websites-hosting.com does not manage your hosting or c panel areas and is not responsible for instruction, providing information on where instruction is available, teaching, tutoring or any similar type of help.

Dishonest or Fraudulent Behaviours will not be tolerated. websites-hosting.com reserves the right to suspend, cancel hosting, or refuse service to any user for dishonest or fraudulent activities on any website or links FROM your website to other areas meant to defraud or deceive. websites-hosting.com reserves the right to suspend any and ALL of your hosting accounts and/or domains/websites if a breach is found on ANY domain you own or are the agent OF. Meaning: If you have 100 websites and 1 is fraudulent we will close the other 99 as well. If we are contacted by legal authorities to suspend or close your sites we will conform to those requests immediately. Example of sites/usages that will incur immediate suspension or cancellation of services, and may also include loss of domain names or further legal action by LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES: Spam sites (including use of email accounts to send spam emails to unconsenting receivers), fake sites (sites made to deceive visitors into thinking they are at the REAL website, eg: Paypal, bank sites etc). Payment Processor Organisations, such as Paypal or Banks or Credit Card providers may contact websites-hosting.com to CANCEL your use of INCOMING PAYMENTS if your products or services are NOT as described, are faulty, or your refund/replacement policy is not adhered to or not current with LEGAL conditions (means you cannot make up your own laws that are contrary to actual laws, eg: No refunds – exchanges only is illegal in MOST countries. You also may not give "cover notes" in place of refunds). It is usual in these instances that you will first be contacted by the payment provider (eg: paypal, bank), and will be requested or ordered to make changes. If you fail to respond, or comply, or your changes are insufficient, the payment provider can CANCEL your accounts, or block payments being sent to you from banks, user accounts or credit cards. You may also LOOSE this priviledge on ALL your financial dealings for business/personal reasons for every facet of your financial dealings including personal bank accounts, bank loans, your own credit cards etc. If you fail to conform to requests made by your payment providers and we are contacted by them to suspend or cancel your website(s) we MUST comply.
5. Illegal or ANTI SOCIAL usage is not tolerated. We will IMMEDIATELY suspend &/or delete websites &/or suspend &/or delete webhosting accounts of ANY user participating in illegal or ANTI SOCIAL behaviours. We will actively assist law enforcement agencies with any and all information requests and in extreme cases will report you to them if we believe your activities break any laws, or present any threat of psychological or actual harm in ANY WAY. FREEDOM OF SPEECH does not indemnify you for SLANDER and LIABLE or from prosecution and accountability in regards to LAWS concerning areas that are in force such as: Racism, Genderism, Abuse, Bullying, or general such as inciting illegal activities, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, entrapment etc. Nor does it allow you to breach copyright or trademark laws. Eg: Freedom of movement allows you to travel to or go anywhere you choose but does NOT extend to your right to enter private property or tresspass on lands not owned by you. Your right to religious freedom and religious expression and beliefs does not entitle you to any right of religious PRACTICE that is legislated against, eg: Practicing religions with animal sacrifices, or codes concerning slaughtering of animals for consumption, must still adhere to animal welfare and animal cruelty laws and all etc.
