Unlimited Use Policy

High bandwidth usage: Insight Hosting offers an unlimited use policy by maintaining very large ratios of bandwidth per customer. In rare cases, Insight Hosting may find a customer to be using server resources to such an extent that he or she may jeopardize service performance and resources for other customers. In such instances, at Insight Hosting ' discretion, Insight Hosting reserves the right to impose the High Resource User Policy for the consideration of all customers.


Database Usage

If you exceed the limits on our database products (MS SQL and MySQL) then we will automatically charge you for the additional space you use at our current prices. For example if you have a 150MB database and 200MB is in use at any point during a month then we will charge for the extra 50MB in that month.


High Resource User Policy

Resources are defined as bandwidth, processor utilization or disk space.

Insight Hosting may implement the following policy to its sole discretion:

When the resources utilised by a customer in using a service are abnormally high, Insight Hosting reserves the right to suspend that service immediately. This policy is only implemented in extreme circumstances and is intended to prevent the misuse of our services. Customers may be offered an option whereby Insight Hosting continues supplying the service under a reduced usage criteria specified by Insight Hosting. Failure to comply with such measures may result in your service being terminated.
