Network / Systems. Shared web hosting was designed to give the maximum numbers of users access to the internet at the lowest cost available. Our Network usage is open to all MICROLINQ users. Your site is welcome on our network as long as your site does not create a problem for the network. High Network traffic or throughput is not a problem at MICROLINQ, but extreme network traffic or extreme uploading and downloading can create problems. Your maximum throughput allowed by your website is an estimate of your usage. You are allowed to exceed your maximum usage without being shut off. You will be billed for the additional throughput on your next billing cycle. Please help MICROLINQ plan for the future and popularity of your website. Excessive system processing demands (as determined by MICROLINQ), that are levied on a server as a result of your site, may result in immediate site shut down without previous notice. If you know in advance due to advertising, publicity, or general interest that your throughput will exceed 3 times the amount allowable by your plan, please contact us at 972.867.4576 or at manager@MICROLINQ.com. This will ensure no downtime and maximum availability of your website at all times. If you expect to exceed the maximum amount of disk space by 3 times your plan allotment, please contact us at manager@MICROLINQ.com. We can upgrade you to another plan or make other arrangements to save you money and to ensure your site is available at all times.
MICROLINQ customers may not use our network to circumvent user authentication or security of any host, network, or account. This includes, but is not limited to, accessing data not intended for the customer, logging into a server or account the customer is not expressly authorized to access, password cracking, probing the security of other networks or directly violating the security policy of another organization. Customers are also not allowed to interfere or deny service to any user, host, or network by flooding, mail bombing, or attempts to overload or crash the host network. Furthermore, any service that is common to hackers and brings negative attention to the MICROLINQ network is strictly prohibited. This includes IRC, the re-selling of shell accounts and any other service found to support adverse activity. Any violation of the network guidelines set forth will result in deactivation of your web host for resolution.
Mass Mailings. MICROLINQ has a zero stance policy on SPAM, Junk E-mail or UCE. Spam, Junk-mail and UCE are defined as: the sending of the same, or substantially similar, unsolicited electronic mail message, whether commercial or not, to more than one recipient. A message is considered unsolicited if it is posted in violation of a newsgroup charter or if it is sent to a recipient who has not requested or invited the message. UCE also includes e-mail with forged headers, compromised mail server relays, and false contact information. This prohibition extends to the sending of unsolicited mass mailings from another service, which in any way implicates the use of the MICROLINQ servers. Violation of the above terms will result in one or all of the following:
from MICROLINQ, via E-mail or phone.
disconnection of service with no re-activation.
If your actions have caused MICROLINQ mail servers to be placed on blackhole lists and other mail filtering software systems used by ISPs and Web Hosting companies around the world, you will be assessed a $1000 charge to your account and $150 per hour for administrative charges incurred to remove and protect our mail servers and/or domain names. If you have further questions about our mass mailing policy, please send them to manager@MICROLINQ.com. If you want to report abuse by one of our users, please send the e-mail to abuse@MICROLINQ.com.
Mailing Lists: Our mass mailing rules also apply to mailing lists, list servs, or mailing services you may contract with. Our policy is the following: An acceptable mailing list will be focused at a target audience that has voluntarily signed up for your e-mail information or that has made their e-mail address available for distribution of information from you. Your own list servers in which customers have signed up for in the past, is a valid mailing list. If one of your members asks to be removed, please remove them as soon as feasibly possible. Internally created mailing lists are valid as long as your customers agree to receive the e-mail. Purchased mailing lists are generally a violation of the rules because you have not received authority from the recipient to send them an e-mail. The final rule to all mailing lists is simple: if your customers begin to send SPAM complaints to MICROLINQ about your e-mail, you will be bound to the terms of mass mailings listed above. If you have direct questions in reference to mailing lists, please send your question to manager@MICROLINQ.com .
