Server Abuse Policy
If we determine that any site on our servers is using too much of the server's resources and therefore abusing the server, we have the right to suspend that domain without any notice. It is then up to you to contact us and formulate a plan to get that domain activated again. We are quick to suspend any domain that abuses the server's resources due to the shared nature of the server and the negative impact an abusing domain has on other domains on the same server.
No mass email marketing or free email businesses allowed!!
We do not allow mass email marketing sites on our servers. It doesn't matter if it's opt_in email marketing. We simply do not allow sites of that nature to be hosted on this shared environment. Sites such as "safe lists" and "free email" are also strictly prohibited. We reserve the right to shutdown such sites, that we consider harmful to the server's performance.
877host.com is committed to a zero-tolerance, anti-Spamming policy. Under this policy, we prohibit Spam, or any unsolicited commercial email, from being sent either: Over the 877host.com network, by customers or any other users of the 877host.com network (including customers' customers); AND/OR over ANY network- if the message sent advertises or mentions a site hosted on the 877host.com server.
We react quickly and seriously to violations, and we further reserve the right to terminate the services, without prior notice, of any customer disregarding this policy.
