webO3 employs an Acceptable Use Policy ("AUP") to maintain the integrity and performance of its IT equipment. In a shared web hosting environment, several clients share the resources of a given server. It is therefore important not to use your hosting account in a way that negatively affects other webO3 customers. Our PUA describes what is and what is not allowed on our servers. By using our services, you agree to comply with our PUA. Failure to comply with the PUA may cause suspension or closure of your account without prior notice. webO3 remains the sole mediator as to what constitutes a breach of the AUP.
2. Illegal Activities
You may not use webO3 services for illegal purposes. You agree to comply with any applicable government regulations, laws or rules.
3. Spam Policy
webO3 has a zero tolerance spam policy. It is prohibited to send unsolicited email from or to our servers under any circumstances.
4. Software and Scripts Allowed
All software and scripts installed on your account must be free from vulnerabilities, viruses, and malware. Any software with documented vulnerabilities on the Internet is strictly prohibited on our servers. It is your responsibility to install security updates for all software you install in a timely manner.
Popular web software such as WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, phpBB, as well as their extensions, modules and add-ons, are particularly vulnerable because of their popularity, and extra vigilance should be employed to ensure that the software is up to date and secure.
