Terms of Service

Revised 06/26/05

You must accept these terms of service in order to use our services. These terms of service may be updated as needed at any time without notice. The main purpose of this agreement is to protect all users on our servers and explain our policies. Read these terms of service carefully and return here frequently.

1) Suspension
Violation of these terms of service could result in suspension or removal of your account depending upon the circumstances. Suspension means that your account is put into a limbo state and is unreachable through any means. During suspension no files are lost or altered. Accounts found to be running a script which is causing a very high cpu load or mail script being used to send spam will almost always be suspended without notice to prevent further damage. Poorly written scripts must be removed in order for us to restore your service. Reports of spam are taken very seriously usually resulting in immediate account suspension and investigation without notice. We reserve the right to suspend any or all accounts held by you without notice if we deem it necessary to do so.

2) Scope of Service
Script support or other "how-to" services are not provided as part of the hosting package.  It is the responsibility of the user to become learned in setting up and administering their account including script installs, file permissions, uploading procedures, etc. Support will be strictly limited to making sure that running scripts is possible by running our test script. ICOMCO, LLC. can provide “for fee” service to maintain/control your account for you.
