Server abuse policy
If we determine that any site on our servers is using too much of the server's resources and therefore abusing the server, we have the right to suspend that domain without any notice. It is then up to you to contact us and formulate a plan to get that domain activated again. We are quick to suspend any domain that abuses the server's resources due to the shared nature of the server and the negative impact an abusing domain has on other domains on the same server.
Cid Hosting is committed to a zero-tolerance, anti-Spamming policy. Under this policy, we prohibit Spam, or any unsolicited commercial email, from being sent either: Over the Cid Hosting network, by customers or any other users of the Cid Hosting network (including customers' customers); AND/OR over ANY network? if the message sent advertises or mentions a site hosted on the Cid Hosting server.
We react quickly and seriously to violations, and we further reserve the right to terminate the services, without prior notice, of any customer disregarding this policy. Sending unsolicited commercial email (a.k.a. "spam"), cross-posting messages to a large number of Usenet groups, posting obscene or threatening messages while using or referring to an Cid Hosting email address or web site URL is prohibited. The use of Cid Hosting servers as a mail drop for responses to activities described above is also prohibited.
If you have any complaints or comments regarding Spam on our network, please direct them via email to email@example.com

CGI Scripts Policy
Each account comes with its own cgi-bin. You are free to use any CGI scripts you wish, [as long as they are not on our banned script's list] however we reserve the right to disable any CGI script that effects normal server operation or service to other Cid Hosting customers. You will be notified in 24 hours about offending cgi script.
Cid Hosting is not responsible for scripts that you use in your hosting. It is not our responsibility to ensure your scripts function. Please don't expect our support techs to troubleshoot aspects of your scripts or third party scripts that you use on your sites hosted on our servers.
Cid Hosting provides technical support for the Server & Server related software. Any scripts included in the Control Panel are 3rd Party scripts and are not supported by Cid Hosting, however you may ask for assistance from our customer forums.
Cid Hosting allows for very generous traffic, and most sites never exceed 500MB per month, unless they offer shareware, sound, video, image and multimedia archives, are mirror sites or any site whose primary purpose is file distribution. Cid Hosting customers are discouraged from storing any files that cause excessive traffic on Cid Hosting servers. Please contact Cid Hosting Technical Support team for more information. Again, 99% of the sites do not fall into this category and never reach our traffic limits.
We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason not prohibited by law. Also we reserve the right to terminate service to any customer for any reason not prohibited by law.
Any deliberate attempt to cause damage to Cid Hosting or any other Internet servers will result in immediate account deactivation without prior notice. No refund is given in this case.
All account plans come with a predetermined amount of traffic allowance. Accounts are frozen when this limit has been reached. Email firstname.lastname@example.org upgrade your account.
Full backups are made at regular intervals. No guarantees are made of any kind, either expressed or implied, as to the integrity of these backups. Backups are made for server restoration purposes only. It is the client's responsibility to maintain local copies of their web content any information.
The "Backup Manager" is included in each hosting plan and client can use this tool to back up their files into their own backup device.
It is the client's responsibility to have a good working knowledge of aspects of their site's operation. Please do not expect the Cid Hosting support staff to teach you how to use aspects of the tools at your disposal. You can post questions like this into the General discussion area of the forum and interact with other Cid Hosting members for help etc.
