What is Appropriate Usage?

Flighthost LLC is designed to serve the web hosting needs of small, independently owned and operated businesses in a single country. It is not appropriate to use our services to support large enterprises or internationally based businesses with a sustained demand that places undue burden on our systems or negatively impacts use by small, independently owned and operated businesses.

Flighthost LLC is a shared web hosting service, which means that a number of customers' web sites and other email or storage services are hosted from the same server. Flighthost LLC uses abuse controls to help ensure that use of our services does not adversely affect the performance of our system or other customers' sites. It is not appropriate to use an account primarily as an online storage space or for archiving electronic files.

Disk Space

If you use your services consistently with the terms of Service and these paragraphs, your site can grow as large as necessary to meet your small business needs, but to ensure a great experience for all, we will place some constraints on how fast you can grow. The vast majority of our customers' sites grow at rates well within our rules, but our abuse controls may cause a brief delay while we evaluate if expansion is appropriate for your particular plan.

Flighthost LLC Customers may not initiate the following (below), if any customer does Flighthost LLC may terminate the account with no refund. Depending on the situation there will/won't be warnings sent.
a) Use 25% or more of system CPU resources for longer then 90 seconds or 1% of the servers CPU resources for longer than 5 minutes. There are numerous activities that could cause such problems; these include: CGI scripts, FTP, PHP, HTTP, etc.

Bandwidth

In most cases, if you use our services consistently with our terms of Service, visitors to your web site will be able to download and view as much content from your site as they like. However, in certain circumstances, our server processing power, server memory, or abuse controls could limit downloads from your site. You will always be able to use as much bandwidth as your account has. Bandwidth is also reset every month. In the event your account uses more bandwidth in a given month, charges in the amount of $7.00 per excess gigabyte used will be processed during the following month. If you notice you are regularly exceeding the bandwidth limits please contact our sales team so that we can discuss account upgrade options or pre-paid excess bandwidth at significantly reduced costs.

Unused transfer in one month cannot be carried over to the next month.

Email Storage

Flighthost provides email storage and connectivity through both POP3 and IMAP protocols with each account. Your email storage is only limited by the amount of total available account space. When utilizing POP3 email we recommend not keeping a copy of mail on the server to prevent disk usage issues. If you use IMAP to access your email, we recommend regularly archiving old email to both increase retrieval speed and reduce the impact on your available storage space. Our Support Team will be happy to discuss the pros and cons of each method with you.
