We will setup your account after we have received payment and we and/or our payment partner(s) have screened the order(s) incase of fraud. It is your responsibility to provide us with an email address which is not @ the domain(s) you are signing up under. If there is ever an abuse issue or we need to contact you, the primary email address on file will be used for this purpose. It is your responsibility to ensure the email address on file is current or up to date at all times. Providing false contact information of any kind may result in the termination of your account.
Our transfers team will make every effort to help you move your site to us. However, transfers are provided as a courtesy service, and we can not make guarantees regarding the availability, possibility, or time required to complete an account transfer. Each hosting company is configured differently, and some hosting platforms save data in an incompatible or proprietary format, which may make it extremely difficult if not impossible to migrate some or all account data. We will try our best, but in some cases we may be unable to assist you in a transfer of data from an old host. The free transfer services are available for 30 days from your sign up date and only available if your previous hosting company is running cPanel. If your previous company was running a non-standard control panel, there could be a migration fee. Transfers outside of the 30 day free period will incur a charge. Please contact our support department with specific details to receive a price quote.

All abuse issues must be dealt with via troubleticket/email and will have a response within 24 hours. Internet services providers like ETNHost and many of ETNHost's other webhosting services and brands are republishers and not the publisher of content.
Our service merely provides a hosting platform and space on which to host content, and any creation or publication of content on our services is the sole responsibility of the third-party user which creates or publishes the content. Therefore, ETNHost should not be held liable for any allegedly defamatory, offensive or harassing content published on sites hosted under ETNHost's webhosting service(s).

Resellers: we will suspend the site in question and will notify you so you may terminate the account. We will further monitor your activity; more than one infraction of this type may result in the immediate termination of your account.
Direct customers: Your services will be terminated with or without notice. Violations will be reported to the FBI. It is your responsibility to ensure that scripts/programs installed under your account are secure and permissions of directories are set properly, regardless of installation method.

If a weak password is used, your account may be suspended until you agree to use a more secure password. Audits may be done to prevent weak passwords from being used. If an audit is performed, and your password is found to be weak, we will notify you and allow time for you to change/update your password.

Any invoice that is outstanding for 9 days and not paid will result in a late fee and/or an account suspension until account balance has been paid in full. The late fee is applied in addition to whatever else is owed to ETNHost for services rendered. Access to the account will not be restored until payment has been received. Domain renewals are billed and renewed 7 days before the renew date. It is the customer's responsibility to notify our sales team via email at email@example.com for any domain registration cancellation. No refunds can be given, once a domain is renewed. All domain registrations, and renewals are final. ETNHost reserves the right to change the monthly payment amount and any other charges at anytime.
For its own operational efficiencies and purposes, ETNHost regulary backs up data on its servers, but is under no obligation or duty to Subscriber to do so under these Terms. It is solely Subscriber's duty and responsibility to backup Subscriber's files and data on ETNHost servers. ETNHost accepts no responsibility should backups be unavailable for any reason including but not limited to data corruption, hardware failure, internet connectivity problems, electricity outage, software failure, human mistake, flood, other natural disasters and acts of God, labor disputes, accidents, acts of war or terrorism, failure of any third party to perform any commitment. Any account larger than 5 gigabytes, accounts, containing big archives or total amount of files larger than 100 000 may, at our discretion, be excluded from our backup systems with or without notice. All cPanel backup files, backup-*.tar.gz and cpmove-*.tar.gz, older than 72 hours will be removed from the server automatically and we suggest downloading said backups to an off-server location. ETNHost reserves the right to exclude certain file formats from the backup procedure, in case they are considered inappropriate, including, but not limited to high definition digital media formats, archive formats, cache formats, databases exceeding 500MB in raw size.
Cancellations must be submitted via our Client Area. Cancellations requested via e-mail will not be honored and directions will be provided to submit a cancellation via our Client Area.

ETNHost gives you an unconditional 30 day money back guarantee on shared hosting solutions. Fees paid by Subscriber in connection with the purchase of SSL certificates, domain privacy, domain names are nonrefundable. Only first-time accounts are eligible for a refund.

Violations of these Terms of Service will waive the refund policy and no refund will be granted.
ETNHost provides Users with bandwidth, disk space and other resources, such as e-mail, mysql databases, and/or file-transfer-protocol ("FTP") accounts, the amount of which is defined in ETNHost's web pages describing the package of Services purchased at the time of purchase. In some cases, ETNHost may not establish a specific amount of some resources, and refer to that as "Unlimited". In all cases, the Services are intended for normal use only, and any activity that results in excessive usage that is inconsistent with normal usage patterns is strictly prohibited. ETNHost reserves the right to suspend, discontinue or delete the accounts of Users whose use of disk space, bandwidth or other resources results in or presents the risk of degradation of service to other customers, regardless of the amount of disk space, bandwidth or other resources included in the User's plan. User agrees that such usage shall not exceed the amounts set by ETNHost for the Services purchased (the "Agreed Usage") and is additionally subject to normal usage guidelines established by ETNHost as in effect from time to time. These allotments are optimized and dedicated towards serving the Content and User's active electronic mail services related solely to User's web hosting account(s) with ETNHost. Hosting space is intended for normal use only, and is limited to Web files, active e-mail and content of the hosted Web sites, not for storage (whether of media, e-mails, or other data). Hosting space further may not be used as offsite storage of electronic files, electronic mail or FTP hosts. You are responsible for removing any files, e-mails or other data which do not meet these requirements, and for adhering to any usage requirements or limits allocated to your account(s). Failure to do so may result in removal and deletion of such materials (including without limitation files and e-mails), and/or in discontinuation of your services or account, which actions we may take in our sole discretion. ETNHost may monitor User's use of bandwidth, disk usage and other resources. ETNHost, in its sole discretion, shall have the right to take any corrective action if User's utilization of bandwidth, disk usage or other resources exceeds the Agreed Usage, or normal usage by our typical shared hosting customer, resource usage, or is used for other improper storage or usage. Such corrective action may include the assessment of additional charges, disconnection or discontinuance of any and all Services, removal or deletion of User's Web site, User Content, User's electronic mail and e-mail services and/or other materials and services or termination the User's account and of this Agreement, which actions may be taken in ETNHost's sole and absolute discretion.

Accounts found to be exceeding the 100,000 inode limit can be removed from our backup system to avoid over-usage, however databases will still be backed up. Every file (a webpage, image file, email, etc) on your account uses 1 inode. Sites that slightly exceed our inode limits are unlikely to be suspended; however, accounts that constantly create and delete large numbers of files on a regular basis, have hundreds of thousands of files, or cause file system damage may be flagged for review and/or suspension. The primary cause of excessive inodes seems to be due to users leaving their catchall address enabled, but never checking their primary account mailbox. Over time, tens of thousands of messages (or more) build up, eventually pushing the account past our inode limit. To disable your default mailbox, login to cPanel and choose "Mail", then "Default Address", "Set Default Address", and then type in: ":fail: No such user here" without the quotes.
User may not:
- Use 25% or more of system resources for longer than 90 seconds. There are numerous activities that could cause such problems; these include: CGI scripts, FTP, PHP, HTTP, etc.
- Run stand-alone, unattended server-side processes at any point in time on the server. This includes any and all daemons, such as IRCD.
- Run any type of web spider or indexer (including Google Cash / AdSpy) on shared servers.
- Run any software that interfaces with an IRC (Internet Relay Chat) network.
- Run any bit torrent application, tracker, or client. You may link to legal torrents off-site, but may not host or store them on our shared servers.

- Run any gaming servers such as counter-strike, half-life, battlefield1942, quake etc
- Run cron entries with intervals of less than 15 minutes
When using PHP include functions for including a local file, include the local file rather than the URL. Instead of include("http://yourdomain.com/include.php") use include("include.php") While our shared services are suitable for the bulk of our customers, there comes a time for some websites when they are better suited for a larger plan, which allows for more dedicated CPU and memory resources. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to discontinue service to any customer with a website or other hosted data that takes up more than 10% of the server resources and/or 10% of the server's CPU. This means that if your website is found to be utilizing more than 10% of the CPU and memory of the service, we reserve the right to take your site offline. If this becomes necessary, you can either upgrade your hosting package, or request a pro-rated refund of the amounts you have paid in advance for the services. Due to the severity of this, and our ability to act quickly to correct these situations to avoid server issues, we will do everything reasonably feasible to provide you with a warning prior to taking your site offline, but we accept no obligation to do so.
You are allocated a monthly bandwidth allowance. This allowance varies depending on the hosting package you purchase. Should your account pass the allocated amount we reserve the right to suspend the account until the start of the next allocation, suspend the account until more bandwidth is purchased at an additional fee, suspend the account until you upgrade to a higher level of package, terminate the account and/or charge you an additional fee for the overages. Unused transfer in one month cannot be carried over to the next month. ETNHost will not activate new orders or activate new packages for customers who have an outstanding balance with ETNHost.
We provide you with a 99.9% uptime guarantee which covers the availability of our servers, as well as all network components in all of our data centers. ETNHost guarantees that our data center network will be available 99.9% of the time and there will be no network interruption from our network backbone to our upstream providers at any time in a given month. Our guarantee excludes the following situations:
- Scheduled maintenance time
- Problems outside of our network
- Interruptions or failure of individual client services/accounts caused by the clientâ€™s: employees/customers, configuration errors, 3rd party software errors, client abuse or excessive utilization of resources
- Malicious activities such as Denial of Services attack
If your shared / reseller server has a physical downtime that is not within the 99.9% uptime you may receive one month of credit on your account. Approval of the credit is at the discretion of ETNHost dependent upon justification provided. Third party monitoring service reports may not be used for justification due to a variety of factors including the monitor's network capacity/transit availability. The uptime of the server is defined as the reported uptime from the operating system and the Apache Web Server which may differ from the uptime reported by other individual services. To request a credit, please submit a support ticket in the Client Area with justification. Uptime guarantees only apply to shared / reseller solutions.
Resellers are responsible for supporting their clients. ETNHost does provide support to our Reseller's Clients. However, If a reseller's client contacts us, we reserve the right to place the client account on hold until the reseller can assume their responsibility for their client. We recommend all support requests to be made by the reseller on their clients' behalf for security purposes. Resellers are also responsible for all content stored or transmitted under their reseller account and the actions of their clients. ETNHost will hold any reseller responsible for any of their clients actions that violate the law or these terms of service.

Customer agrees that it shall defend, indemnify, save and hold ETNHost harmless from any and all demands, liabilities, losses, costs and claims, including reasonable attorney's fees asserted against ETNHost, its agents, its customers, officers and employees, that may arise or result from any service provided or performed or agreed to be performed or any product sold by customer, its agents, employees or assigns. Customer agrees to defend, indemnify and hold harmless ETNHost against liabilities arising out of; (1) any injury to person or property caused by any products sold or otherwise distributed in connection with ETNHost; (2) any material supplied by customer infringing or allegedly infringing on the proprietary rights of a third party; (3) copyright infringement and (4) any defective products sold to customers from ETNHost's server.
