"UNLIMITED" USAGE POLICIES AND DEFINITIONS

"Unlimited" usage policies and definitions apply only to shared and reseller hosting accounts.

What "Unlimited" means

Ultrahostghana does not set an arbitrary limit or cap on the amount of resources a single Subscriber can use. In good faith and subject to these Terms, Ultrahostghana makes every commercially reasonable effort to provide its Subscribers with all the storage and bandwidth resources needed to power their web sites successfully, as long as the Subscriber's use of the service complies with these Terms. By not setting limits on key resources, we are able to provide simple, consistent pricing to our Subscribers as they grow their websites. As a result, a typical website may experience periods of great popularity and resulting increased storage without experiencing any associated increase in hosting charges.

What "Unlimited" DOES NOT mean

Ultrahostghana employs complex mechanisms to protect its Subscribers and systems from abuse. Ultrahostghana's offering of "unlimited" services is not intended to allow the actions of a single or few Subscribers to unfairly or adversely impact the experience of other Subscribers. Ultrahostghana's service is a shared hosting service, which means that multiple Subscriber web sites are hosted from the same server and share server resources. Ultrahostghana shared hosting service is designed to meet the typical needs of small business and home business website subscribers. It is NOT intended to support the sustained demand of large enterprises, internationally based businesses, or non-typical applications better suited to a dedicated server. Ultrahostghana will make every commercially reasonable effort to provide additional resources to Subscribers who are using their website(s) consistent with these Terms, including moving Subscribers to newer and bigger shared servers as necessary. However, in order to ensure a consistent and quality experience for all Subscribers, Ultrahostghana does place automated safeguards to protect against any one site growing too quickly and adversely impacting the system until Ultrahostghana can evaluate said sites resource needs. The space on the hosting account cannot be used for: Backup storage, Online storage, File sharing services, Movie storage, Photo storage, Software storage, Copyrighted content storage, Illegal, Abusive or Offending file storage, Document Archives or any other type of Archive, File Backups (with the exception of a single cPanel backup generated from your cPanel), log files, etc. Ultrahostghana reserves the right to remove such files from the user account with or without notice to the client. Ultrahostghana also reserves the right to remove any single files larger than 1GB from the user account regardless of the content of the file with or without notice to the client. Ultrahostghana also reserves the right to clean up a user account by removing files which fall under the criteria of files that may not be hosted on Ultrahostghana accounts, if there are more than 250.000 files on a single account, with or without notice to the client. Ultrahostghana also reserves the right to disable the account which holds more than 250.000 files until the relevant shared hosting account is upgraded by the client to a vps service where such limitation is not applied.

Unlimited Hosting Space; excessive MySQL files

Ultrahostghana does not set arbitrary limits on the amount of disk space a Subscriber can use for the Subscriber's website, nor does Ultrahostghana charge additional fees based on an increased amount of storage used, provided the Subscriber's use of storage complies with these Terms. Please note, however, that the Ultrahostghana service is designed to host websites. Ultrahostghana does NOT provide unlimited space for online storage, backups, or archiving of electronic files, documents, log files, etc., and any such prohibited use of the Services will result in the termination of Subscriber's account, with or without notice. Accounts with a large number of files (inode count in excess of 100,000) can have an adverse affect on server performance. Similarly, accounts with an excessive number of MySQL/PostgreSQL tables (i.e., in excess of 1000 database tables) or of database size (i.e., in excess of 3GB total MySQL/PostgreSQL usage or 2GB MySQL/PostgreSQL usage in a single database) negatively affect the performance of the server. Ultrahostghana may request that the number of files/inodes, database tables, or total database usage be reduced to ensure proper performance or may terminate the Subscriber's account, with or without notice.

Unlimited File Transfer

Ultrahostghana does not set arbitrary limits on the amount of visitor traffic a web site can receive or on the amount of content a Subscriber can upload to his/her/its website in a given month, nor does Ultrahostghana charge additional fees based on increased use of bandwidth, as long as the Subscriber's use of the Services complies with these Terms. In most cases, a Subscriber's web site will be able to support as much traffic as the Subscriber can legitimately acquire. However, Ultrahostghana reserves the right to limit processor time, bandwidth, processes, or memory in cases where it is necessary to prevent negatively impacting other Subscribers.

Unlimited Domain Hosting

Ultrahostghana does not set arbitrary limits on the number of domain names a Subscriber can associate with the Subscriber's web hosting account.

File Usage / Inode Limits

Inode

An inode is a data structure used to keep information about a file on your hosting account. The number of inodes indicates the number of files and folders you have. This includes everything on your account, emails, files, folders, anything you store on the server.

Shared Hosting Accounts

We only allow 50,000 inodes per cPanel account, because that is where we see optimal server performance. We do understand that not all of our customers can reduce their file count that far; for this reason this is a "Soft limit" meaning that while the limit is reached, you will still be able to upload files. Once the account exceeds 200,000 files then it will be in violation of our Terms of Service and can result in possible suspension.
