The Legal Version
Authorized Use Policies (AUP)

(for all accounts) OnTimeHost has certain ethical, legal and moral responsibilities consisting with the use of its servers and equipment involved in the services of web site hosting, marketing and design. OnTimeHost reserves the right to suspend, deny or cancel a subscriber's access to any or all services provided by OnTimeHost whenever OnTimeHost decides the services it has rendered have been inappropriately used. Use of OnTimeHost's service constitutes acceptance and agreement to our policies.

Web Site, Server, and Network Content/Use Provisions

(for all accounts) All services provided by OnTimeHost and its underlying service providers 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, material protected by trade secret and other statutes, material that would cause harm to minors, threats and harassment, forgery, fraud, unfriendly network disruptions, and distribution of viruses. The subscriber agrees to indemnify and hold harmless OnTimeHost from any claims resulting from the use of the service which damages the subscriber or any other party. The subsriber also agrees that OnTimeHost may disclose, without subscribers consent, any and all information related to the subscriber and their service with OnTimeHost to any law enforcement agent who makes a written request. 

OnTimeHost is not responsible for any material input by anyone other then OnTimeHost and/or posted to the OnTimeHost network by anyone other then OnTimeHost. This includes the content and links on websites hosted by OnTimeHost. OnTimeHost disclaims any liability and responsibility relating to innappropriate use or innappropriate content of anything hosted by OnTimeHost that OnTimeHost did not soley create and post to the OnTimeHost network.

Pornography and sex-related merchandising are prohibited on any OnTimeHost server. OnTimeHost will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision. OnTimeHost also reserves the right not to host sites that it considers, in its sole discretion, to be religiously or racially offensive or inflammatory. OnTimeHost will not host warez sites or anything related to, promoting, or offering warez, serial numbers, cracks, illegal mp3's or anything else that would considered illegal by the laws governing the citizens of the United States and the state of Arizona and the city of Glendale, Arizona.

With the few exceptions listed above and below, we support the uncensored flow of information and ideas over the internet. We do not actively monitor the information that our subscribers transmit and receive, however, we do react immediately to any alleged violations of any of our policies in which case we reserve the right to monitor anything on our network and any packet of information that traverses our network.

Unmetered Web Traffic Stipulations for virtual accounts: (for virtual accounts only) We are pleased to offer all of our virtual hosting account unmetered web page traffic (see individual packages for detail). This is considered any transfer of information in the form of text or graphic or other, directly readable or downloadable by a web browser, ftp server, email server or any other internet related data transfer engine. Our intention is to provide a large storage space to serve web documents, not an off-site storage area for electronic files. Virtual hosting web accounts that are found to contain either no HTML documents or a large number of unlinked files are subject to warning, suspension or cancellation at the discretion of our administration. 

Virtual hosting (not dedicated or Co-located) subscribers are not allowed to have large archives of files which would be downloaded freely by others, i.e. shareware archives unless prearranged with OnTimeHost. Any files that need to be downloaded to be viewed (are not directly viewable in a web browser) fall under the category of FTP transfer. Unmetered traffic applies to standard HTML pages and standard graphics like .gif and .jpg. Other files types such as .zip, .mp3 etc... are subject to a 3gb/month bandwidth limit. Extra bandwidth is available at an additional charge to be determined by OnTimeHost based on the file type and bandwidth transfered. 

All virtual accounts that come with unmetered bandwidth are subject to be "within reason" as deemed by OnTimeHost. This means, for example, that if a site is only paying twenty dollars a month and using the bandwidth of a T1, the client will have to pay accordingly or be terminated. 

As a note, over 85% of our clients never exceed even 500 megs of total FTP and web page transfer combined, so you can be assured that our bandwidth is not choked by numerous 'load-heavy' sites. To further protect the integrity of our service, any individual site consistently using 20% or more of the system's resources will be assessed additional charges accordingly. 

Bandwidth usage for dedicated and colocated servers: (for dedicated and colocation accounts) Subscriber agrees to pay for all bandwidth they use that is above the amount included in their package, at the current rate which is listed on OnTimeHost's dedicated server page. Subscriber may elect to have their bandwidth capped at any amount at their choice, or they may elect to have no cap and simply pay for the additional bandwidth used above what is included in subscribers package.

Background-running Programs: (for virtual accounts) We may allow programs to run continuously in the background. These are considered on an individual basis and an extra charge may be incurred based on system resources used and operational maintenance needed. 

IP address's: (Applies to dedicated and co-location subscribers only, does not apply to virtual accounts.) All IPs that are assigned to OnTimeHost's subscribers must be used under the authorized use stipulations within 24 hours of being assigned the IP. Authorized use stipulations are taken from ARIN, the organization that manages IPs. There are to be no unused IP's on OnTimeHost's networks, except those in reserve for OnTimeHost to assign its subscribers on an as needed basis. subscribers are only allocated IPs that they will use within 24 hours. Subscribers are not allowed to keep IP's in reserve. 

OnTimeHost assigns and allows its subscribers to use IP addresses that are owned or are given to OnTimeHost to use. OnTimeHost retains ownership of all IPs assigned to subscribers. Name-Based hosting must be used where possible as per ARIN rules.

Server Abuse Issues: (for all accounts) Any attempts to undermine or cause harm to OnTimeHost servers or the servers of its underlying service providers or a subscriber of OnTimeHost or its underlying service providers is strictly prohibited.

Network Security: (for all accounts) Subscribers are prohitibed from violating or attempting to violate the security of the OnTimeHost network or any of its other subscribers, and should a violation take place, civil or criminal liability may result. OnTimeHost will investigate any alleged violations and cooperate fully with law enforcement. Violations include but are not limited to the attempt to login to any machine which the subscriber is not exclusively paying for, interfering with any service by ddos attacking, mail bombing or anything else that would be detremental to the services that OnTimeHost provides, attempting to prob or scan or test vulnerability of any machine on the OnTimeHost network, forgeing any IP address, and taking any action in an attempt to receive services that the subscriber is not paying for. A violation of any of the above may result in immediate removal from the network.

Any sub-networks or re-seller networks of OnTimeHost must adhere to all of these policies.
