Policies and Service Guidelines

All services may be used for lawful purposes only. Transmission, storage, or presentation of any information, data or material in violation of any United States Federal, State or City law is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to: copyrighted material, material we judge to be threatening or obscene, or material protected by trade secret and other statute. The subscriber agrees to indemnify and hold us harmless from any claims resulting from the use of the service which damages the subscriber or any other party.

Note: Pornography, Nudity and sex-related merchandising are prohibited on all servers. This includes sites that may infer sexual content, or link to adult content elsewhere. This is also true for sites that promote any illegal activity or content that may be damaging to our servers or any other server on the internet. Links to such materials are also prohibited

Because the Internet is a global communication tool, and we have clients from nearly every country in the world it is difficult to dictate what is considered "adult material." However, it is not our function to discriminate against those who choose to utilize adult content or adult related material. This being said, there are still several reasons why Expert Data Solutions Inc. has been forced to create its no adult sites policy for its server users. What does Expert Data Solutions Inc. consider "Adult Material?" Any site whose revenue is gained in part or whole from its adult content. Photos or videos showing frontal nudity on either men or women for non-scientific or non-artistic purposes. Revenue-generating hyperlinks to sites who violate policy #1. Why does Virtualis have this policy? Bandwidth and Resources A virtual server is a shared environment where many servers reside on each particular machine.

This being said, consider that an average "adult site" gets more hits than 100 standard websites. Some of the smaller adult sites get around 5 GB of transfer per day. With these types of resources being utilized, our servers would be severely slowed if we allowed these high traffic sites to also reside on our servers. On top of that, we would be forced to raise our prices to pay for the additional bandwidth. We strive to keep our servers fast and inexpensive, and our bandwidth clear; therefore, adult sites are not an option. Image Also, our research has proved that most businesses do not wish to host their site with a company who also hosts pornography-related sites - whether or not the site is on the same server or on its own dedicated server. We wish to project a professional image, and it is difficult to do so if we host these types of sites. We believe that to have your site affiliated with, or on the same servers as, adult sites could lead potential prospects away from your business. As a result, we will not host adult sites because it may endanger the majority of our clients

In addition, any site selling or promoting Bulk email services or software is forbidden.

We take pride in having one of the strictest anti-spam policies. To report abuses, please contact [ help@buysecured.net ]

Examples of non-acceptable content or links:

  • Pirated software
  • Hackers programs or archives
  • Warez Sites
  • Irc Bots
  • Mp3

We will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision.

Traffic Guidelines
Due to the unique resource characteristics and traffic patterns associated with certain types of sites, the following are limited to 3 gigs of free traffic:

  • Subhosting - any domain housing additional users
  • Shareware, sound, video, image and multimedia archives
  • Mirror sites
  • Distribution points
  • Any site whose primary purpose is file distribution

CGI Scripts
Script access may be granted. Contact help@buysecured.net for further information.

Chat Rooms
We do not allow clients to install their own chat rooms. For nominal monthly fee we will install our Java CustomeChat room which will more than fill your needs and run without hindering the performance of the machine for others. 

Background Running Programs
We may allow programs to run continually in the background. These are considered on a one to one basis and an extra charge will be incurred based on system resources used and operational maintenance needed.

We currently do not allow IRC or IRC bots to be operated on our servers.

Commercial Advertising - Email:
Our servers may not be the source, intermediary, or destination address involved in the transmission of spam, flames, or mail bombs. Your domain may not be referenced as originator, intermediary, or reply-to address in any of the above. We consider spam to be any unsolicited commercial email (UCE) or unsolicited bulk email (UBE) in the mediums of Newsgroups, Email, and Fax. If you are found to have spammed, then we will immediately, without warning, disable your domain.

As such, any violation will result in immediate deactivation of services without refund.

Server Abuse:
Any attempts to undermine or cause harm to a server is strictly prohibited.

Refusal of Service:
We reserve the right to refuse or cancel service at our sole discretion.
