Our servers are not your testing platforms. User accounts are on high
end, live server responsible for maintaining many accounts. Your server space
is being provided to display your finished product to the web - NOT for testing
purposes. If you are uploading a script to our server, you acknowledge that you
have already tested your script elsewhere and that you know how to install the
Any script that the on duty administrator deems to be potentially threatening
to the overall performance of our web server will be terminated immediately and
your account access will be locked out. When scripts are executed that are potentially
harmful to the server in the long term, the offending account will be terminated
immediately without a refund of any pre-paid fees. A termination includes the
purging of all files.
Please note the following cgi usage policies:
- The script must use low system resources. Scripts that consume a large amount
of server memory or CPU power will be subject to termination, and/or additional
- Each user account may not use more than 1% of system resources at any given
Scripts may not interact with any server configuration or hardware. Users running
scripts that interact with any server configuration or any hardware will be subject
to immediate cancellation of the user account without refund.
- The script can be used and referenced from any site on the Net (i.e. free
counters, etc.) however, scripts must stay within the allowable usage of our system
resources. Users using more resources than a single user account is entitled to
use will be assessed additional monthly charges.
- The script must be executed in a timely fashion. Any script that uses the
processor for more than a few milliseconds is subject to removal.
- Scripts must be secure. Unnecessarily chmoding scripts to 777 is a policy
violation. Placing scripts in a publicly viewable directory (one without an index.html
files) is a policy violation.
- Any accounts with scripts found in violation of any HostRadius Webhosting
policy are subject to future scrutiny of all cgi by our system administrator.
If a script is found to be harmful to the system, it will be killed immediately
and the account locked until the account owners have been contacted. Any time
spent by HostRadius Webhosting to kill a script and/or to lock an account will
be billed to the account at a rate of $25.00 per hour. Malicious scripts are subject
to immediate account cancellation.
