 Abuse of Unlimited Traffic and/or Unlimited Storage
Magnolia South customers are privileged to be offered unlimited traffic and limited storage depending on the plan purchased,for their web sites.

  • Sites with Banners, graphics or cgi scripts running from their domain used on other domains.
  • Sites with picture galleries (This is any site where 50% of the files transferred are graphics).

Commercial advertisements with e-mail
Unsolicited commercial advertisements are not allowed in e-mail, and will likely result in account suspension or cancellation.  Commercial advertisements are unwelcome in most Usenet discussion groups and on most e-mail mailing lists. Inappropriate posting may result in account suspension or cancellation.  See the news group or mailing list's charter for whether advertising is allowed or not.  "Spamming," or sending a message to many different off-topic newsgroups, is particularly unethical and will be treated as such.

Sending a message, especially an advertisement, to more than five or six recipients, is by itself spamming unless the individuals have specifically requested to be added to a mailing list on that topic. E-mail is a person-to-person medium, not a broadcast medium.

Chat Rooms
We do not allow clients to install their own chat rooms, without approving it with the Magnolia South Web Hosting Support Team.  Most chat rooms tend to be large system hogs and we cannot allow it as an account option. However, we do provide a choice of Java chat rooms for  that will more than fill your needs and run without hindering the performance of the machine for others.


Note: Parachat chat rooms do not apply to this rule.  They are perfectly fine to install.
 
 
Background Running Programs
We may allow programs to run continually in the background.  These are considered on a one-to-one basis and an extra charge will be incurred based on system resources used and operational maintenance needed.

IRC
We currently do not allow IRC or IRC bots to be operated on our servers.

Note: We believe in freedom of speech and expression, however, we will not risk a law suit or bad publicity for our company by hosting any "questionable material."  Examples include but are not limited to: 

  • Any site bashing, putting down, etc. another cultural, religious, or ethnic group.
