Terms of Service

Regulations to protect our clients.

Last Updated: 12th of July, 2017

By registering, purchasing hosting, or using the site, you are agreeing to the following Terms of Service.

Vastitude also reserves the right to change and modify the Terms of Service at any time with or without client notification. It is up to the client to periodically check, ensure they are up to date familiar with the new Terms of Service. If any client does not agree with the new Terms of Service modifications, their service will be terminated.

The term "Unlimited" is defined by our experience with similarly situated customers. This means that your use of our resources may not exceed that of similarly situated customers. Examples of primary purposes for an account that are not allowed include, but are not limited to:

- Very large photo galleries
- Audio/Video streaming (other than that which is incidental to a site's operation)
- Storage of a large amount of uncompressed or full-size digital images
- Online file (FTP) serving
- Distribution of large audio or video content such as MP3 files
- Online backups (i.e. backup of desktop/laptop computer, files, or anything not directly related to the website)

You may not place excessive burdens on our CPUs, servers or other resources, including our support services. You understand that bandwidth, connection speeds and other similar indices of capacity are maximum numbers. Consistently reaching these capacity numbers may result our need to place restrictions on your use of the Services. You agree that we may place restrictions on your use of the Services or support services to the extent that they exceed the use of these resources by similarly situated customers. Backups older than 7-days in a customer account may be removed from the server at our discretion. If you exceed 30GB of disk usage in your account, your account will no longer be backed up. Please download any cPanel/Multicraft backups and store them locally.

Minecraft plans come with a soft limit of 6GB memory for the Unlimited Plan and 12GB memory for the Unlimited Plus Plan, due to the nature of the software used. These limits can be increased upon request for no additional charge. To be eligible for additional resources, your usage must be nearing the current set limits.

If your minecraft server is using an excessive amount of storage, we may investigate your storage. If you're found to be using excessive disk space for material not related to your service, we will send you warnings via email. If you fail to follow the warnings, we'll start deleting files unrelated to your service.

Deliberately attempting to use more resources than your allocated amount will result in suspension/termination of your service. This includes manually attempting to increase resource usage.

Client Backups should not exceed more than 5GB.
