Fair Use Policy

WebhostNow uses a Fair Use Policy (FUP) for the unlimited data traffic that we offer with our Plus and Extreme hosting packages. The FUP is intended to guide the amount of data traffic of our packages and to limit overloading of the network and nuisance for other users when this is caused by users who use a larger amount of data traffic via their connection than other users via the same connection.  

 

Data transfer 

 

The data traffic is measured by WebhostNowWebhostNow contacts the user if we find that the data used, measured over a period of 1 month, is more than 4 times the average traffic of other users on the same package. Together with the user, we then examine which options reduce the consumption or which options better suit the needs of the user. If the user does not follow such advice, then WebhostNow can (temporarily) block access or charge costs if the customer does not cooperate. Of course, WebhostNow will only apply such means as a last resort.  

 

Storage 

 

This FUP also applies to the unlimited disk space that we offer with our Plus and Extreme packages. The disk space with these packages is intended for website-related storage and not for the storage of large quantities of film or photo material or other storage files that are not website-related.  

 

The storage capacity is measured by WebhostNowWebhostNow contacts the user if we find that the storage capacity is more than 4 times the average storage of other users on the same package. Together with the user, we then examine which options are better suited to the needs of the user. If the user does not follow such advice, then WebhostNow can (temporarily) block access or charge costs. Of course, WebhostNow will only apply such means as a last resort. 

 

This Fair Use Policy must be read as a supplement to our Terms of Use.
