Script Usage Policy
ImHosted provides our clients with Web Hosting accounts that permit
the use of CGI files, PHP scripts, and other executable programs. Because
these scripts use much more system resources than standard HTML pages,
certain restrictions must be made governing the use of such "active content"
systems. We regret that in many cases we are unable to determine what
specific script or application is causing the system resource over-run.
Under most circumstances, we are able to pin-point it to the offending
account on the system. The following rules apply to all "active content"
files as listed above:
A Virtual Server is shared. As such, there are many accounts per machine.
In all fairness, Imhosted cannot allow one or two clients to use all
of the System resources on a shared machine and have all other clients on
the machine suffer because of it. Excessive CPU usage by one or more clients
causes extreme slowness in all areas: FTP, Telnet, Web Sites and more. If
the CPU usage gets too far out of hand, all sites hosted on the machine
will return Errors and not be accessible in any way.
All accounts that are found to using excessive amounts of system resources will receive an email warning from ImHosted. This warning will inform you that there is too much CGI running and it will provide options for reducing the usage or upgrading your server. If you do not reduce the usage within 24 hours of the email being sent, your account will be cancelled.
