Dedicated/VPS Resource Policy
Overage fees will apply to any service utilizing more than it’s assigned bandwidth allocation, except for those services advertised/sold as “UNMETERED”. Overages will be calculated based on overall amount of GigaBytes (GB) transferred in a monthly period, unless a service is sold based on Megabits per Second (MBPS). Services sold by MBPS, will be calculated via the industry standard 95% method, unless specified in contract otherwise. MRTG or other bandwidth reporting is available upon request for all services. Client is responsible for all usage, and any corresponding overages fees, that result from a service that may be hacked and/or flooding. WINDOWSVPS.HOST may require a deposit should a client utilize/require large amounts of bandwidth beyond their standard bandwidth allocation.
Basic Dedicated & Co-Located servers are installed on 100MBPS unthrottled ports, unless service is sold as a specified port size (ie…100MBPS UNMETERED) or specified/requested as a capped port. WINDOWSVPS.HOST reserves the right to monitor network usage, and if a service significantly exceeds average usage, to throttle the available speed to conserve network resources and to prevent any large billing anomalies. This will generally not include short spikes in usage, but will include, but not be limited to, sustained transfers of significantly larger than average amounts of bandwidth. If at any time any client’s data transfer rate affects other WINDOWSVPS.HOST clientele, WINDOWSVPS.HOST reserves the right to throttle and/or disconnect the service causing such a problem.
WINDOWSVPS.HOST reserves the right to block/filter or throttle ports and/or ip address ranges, at its discretion. This may include, for example, blocking Port 6667 (IRC), denying access from a known-spamming IP address range, or limiting the speed of point-to-point file-sharing programs (Kazaa, Limewire, Donkey, etc…). This may also include giving priority to certain traffic types, such as Voice-over-IP (VOIP) phone call transmissions.
Services advertised/sold as “UNMETERED” will not be subject to bandwidth overage fees. Bandwidth is supplied from a shared pool, and is not supplied as guaranteed/dedicated bandwidth. Burstable usage of the UNMETERED service/port is permitted, however, a service that has heavy sustained usage may have their port capped or be asked to upgrade to a dedicated service plan. UNMETERED service is supplied on a “best-effort” basis—which may result in some slowdowns during peak traffic times.
