YoHost Acceptable Use Policy and Service guidelines

YoHost servers provide web hosting to many clients, and we have a responsibility to protect each client and to provide the best services available. The following guidelines were designed to ensure these obligations are met.

Content:

All services provided by YoHost 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, and invasion of privacy. The subscriber agrees to indemnify and hold harmless YoHost from any claims resulting from the use of the service which damages the subscriber or any other party.

All pornographic content and sex-related merchandising is prohibited on all YoHost servers. This includes sites that may infer sexual content or links to adult content elsewhere. YoHost will be the sole arbiter in determining violations of this provision.

Also prohibited are sites that promote any illegal activity or present content that may be damaging to YoHost servers or any other server on the Internet. Links to such materials are also prohibited.

Examples of unacceptable content or links:

  • Pirated software
  • Hacker programs or archives
  • Warez sites

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

Commercial Advertising - Email:

Spamming, or the sending of unsolicited email, from a YoHost server or using an email address or domain that is maintained on an YoHost machine as reference is STRICTLY prohibited. YoHost will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision.

Misuse of System Resources:

Any attempt to undermine or cause harm to a server, or customer, of YoHost is strictly prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to: using programs that consume excessive CPU time; allowing the use of mail services, mail forwarding capabilities, or autoresponders other than for the customer's own account; resale of disk space without an appropriate reseller agreement; use of servers for backup of files unrelated to the web site of the account; or resale or remote access to CGI scripts installed on our servers. Operation of IRC servers or IRC bots on our servers will result in an immediate suspension of service.

Cancellation and Refund Policy:

Cancellation can be made via email to support@yohost.com and must be confirmed by the account contact(s) of record. No advance notice is required, and there is no cancellation fee. Upon request, we will issue a prorated refund for unused months of hosting service. (If you have purchased web hosting with annual payment and your account is cancelled, your "free month" is forfeited.)

Suspension:

Activity which results in a suspension or deactivation of an account will result in a forfeiture of fees paid. Complaints made regarding abuses of an account will be grounds for suspension.

Domain registration:

With the exception of password and credit card information, the information you submit to register a domain name will be publicly available due to the nature of the domain registration process. Domain registrations are processed by Dotster and subject to:
Dotster/AccountSupport's terms of service
ICANN's Registrants' Benefits and Responsibilities
ICANN's Registrant Educational Information

Refusal of Service:

We reserve the right to refuse, cancel, or suspend service at our sole discretion.

All sub-networks, distributive hosting sites, and dedicated servers of YoHost must adhere to the above policies. Please direct any reports of violations of the above policies to support@yohost.com.

Failure to follow any term or condition will be grounds for immediate account deactivation.
