Unlimited Traffic/Hits & Server Resource Usage:
AuroHosting is pleased to offer our clients unlimited traffic/hits, and server usage. Unlimited Traffic/Hits refers to the number of visitors to your website, NOT the amount of bandwidth/data transfer. Your account is still limited to the alotted bandwidth/data transfer included with your selected package. To maintain the integrity of our service the following traffic/usage limitations apply.
Sites with banners, graphics or cgi’s running from their domain being used on other domains.
Sites with immense graphic archives or galleries.
Sites offering immense download archives, such as .zip, .tar, .ra and .GZ.
Sites running large chat room gatherings.
Sites using more than 20% of system resources
If you do not qualify for unlimited traffic/hits, your account may be required to be upgraded, or, AuroHosting may move your site to a different server, to reduce the load on the server you are currently residing… AuroHosting will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of usage limitations. Bandwidth/data transfer will go unmonitored until you reach your account limit, then normal over-usage data transfer costs will apply. At any time AuroHosting may move your site to a different server, to reduce the load on the server you are currently residing…
AuroHosting does allow clients to install their own chat rooms. However, these tend to be large system hogs and may fall into the usage limitations clause. We do provide a html based cgi chatroom that runs without hindering the performance of the machine for others. You are free to run your own chat script, as long as it does not hinder server performance.
AuroHosting may allow programs to run continually in the background, these are considered on a one to one basis and a extra charge may be incured based on system resources used and operational maintenance needed.
