Illegal Use

DChostings servers may be used for lawful purposes only. Transmission, storage, or distribution of any information, data, or material in violation of any applicable law or regulation, or that may directly facilitate the violation of any particular law or regulation is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to: copyrighted material; trademarks; trade secrets or other intellectual property rights used without proper authorization; material that is obscene, defamatory, constitutes an illegal threat, or violates export control laws. Examples of unacceptable content or links include: pirated software, hacker programs or archives, Warez sites, MP3, and IRC bots.

Adult Content

Due to the special system and network requirements of adult-oriented sites, pornography and sex-related merchandising are prohibited. This includes sites that may infer sexual content or provide links 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, or provide links to such sites.

Security

Violations of system or network security are prohibited and may result in criminal and civil liability. Examples include but are not limited to the following: unauthorized access, use, probing, or scanning of systems security or authentication measures, data, or traffic; interference with service to any user, host, or network including, without limitation, mail bombing, flooding, deliberate attempts to overload a system, broadcast attacks; forging of any TCP-IP packet header or any part of the header information in an email or a newsgroup posting.

IRC

DChostings does not allow IRC or IRC bots to be operated on our servers.

UCE (Unsolicited Commerce Email) - SPAM

Spamming, the sending of unsolicited mass email from or through our servers or using an email address that is maintained on a DChostings machine is STRICTLY prohibited. DChostings will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision. Customers are also in violation of this provision if they engage in spamming using the service of another ISP or IPP, but reference in the spam a web site hosted on a DChostings server, or if they sell or distribute software on their web site that facilitates spamming. Violators will get their hosting account immediately suspended.
