SERVER-SIDE SCRIPT USAGE
Our servers are –not- your testing platforms. User accounts
are on high end, live servers responsible for maintaining many accounts.
server space is being provided to display your finished product to
the web - NOT for testing purposes. If you are uploading a script
you acknowledge that you have already tested your script elsewhere
and that you know how to install the script.
Any script that the on duty administrator deems to be potentially threatening
to the overall performance of our web server will be terminated immediately
and your account access will be locked out. When scripts are executed
that are potentially harmful to the server in the long term, the offending
account will be terminated immediately without a refund of any pre-paid
fees. A termination includes the purging of all files.
===Please note the following script usage policies:
The script must use low system resources. Scripts that consume a large
amount of server memory or CPU power will be subject to termination,
Each user account may not use more than their fair share of system
resources at any given time. Scripts found using excessive memory or
will be disabled without notice. All scripts are subject to veto power
of the system administrator(s). If a script is found to be affecting
other users in the shared-hosting environment - it will be reviewed
and the owner of the script contacted after its been disabled. Scripts
not interact with any server configuration or hardware. Users running
scripts that interact with any server configuration or any hardware
be subject to immediate cancellation of the user account without refund.
The script can be used and referenced from any site on the Net (i.e.
free counters, etc.) however; scripts must stay within the allowable
of our system resources. Users using more resources than a single user
account is entitled to use will be assessed additional monthly charges.
The script must be executed in a timely fashion. Any script that uses
the processor for more than a few milliseconds is subject to removal.
Scripts must be secure. Unnecessarily chmoding scripts to 777 is a
policy violation. Placing scripts in a publicly viewable directory
