Stonerocket reserves the right to remove any such material without warning and suspend or terminate accounts without access to a backup or notice.

System Resource Usage
If StoneRocket's staff team determines that a account holder is utilizing an unacceptable amount of system resources, StoneRocket may temporarily deactivate the account in question. If StoneRocket's staff deems necessary, an eviction notice may be sent to the account holder of an offending account providing them with 3 days in which to locate a new provider. This only occurs in extreme cases.

StoneRocket will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision. Because of the nature of this provision, each account will be considered and analyzed individually.

Background Running Programs (bots/daemons/monitors)
Account holders are not permitted to run programs in the background on shared hosting servers. This tends to use a lot of system resources, and can impair service to other account holders on that server.

Cron Jobs
We do allow Cron Jobs to be conducted on our servers. You can setup and manage the cron jobs for your account from the cPanel of your account, however if there is any abuse of this service, we have rights to issue an account termination.
Please read this thread if you require cron jobs.

Unsolicited Email (SPAM)
SPAMing, or the sending of unsolicited email, from StoneRocket server or using a return email address that is maintained on StoneRocket server is STRICTLY prohibited. Using SPAM to advertise a site hosted on StoneRocket also constitutes as a violation of this provision. We will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision. Sites found to be in violation of our SPAM policies will be immediately deactivated.

Email Usage
As a prevention to combat spammers each hosting account is set to allow sending of 5 emails per hour (mailnull, php mail, pop, smtp) if you are sending more your emails will be held in a queue pending delivery, the mail queue is checked daily and all emails sent out are recorded.
If you need to send out a mass mail "example - CMS, Forums, mail list`s" on a regular basis then we recommend you export your email list`s and use another service to deliver them.

Server Abuse
Any attempts to undermine or cause harm to a StoneRocket server or account holder of StoneRocket is strictly prohibited.
We will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision. Account holders found in violation of this provision will be subject to account deactivation!

Using your Hosting Account
If you get accepted for free web hosting then we expect you to use your account, we are not a domain parking service nor a file hosting service.
When you get accepted for free web hosting you should have your home page up within 48hrs after acceptance failure to do so may lead to your account being flagged as un-used and risk being terminated.
If your account uses less than 5mb bandwidth per month or we feel your account is inactive it may also lead to your account being flagged as un-used and risk being suspended.
Your account will be terminated if is on a suspended state for more than 1 (one) month.

Using your Hosting Account
All web hosting accounts should remain within the agreed data transfer (bandwidth) allowance for the account. Stonerocket accept that there are times when sites may unexpectedly exceed data transfer allowance for short period of time. Stonerocket will not impose any penalty for such breaches of data transfer allowance providing that these breaches are small, are not frequent, and are not sustained. Stonerocket reserve the right to determine what constitutes small, sustained or frequent breaches of data transfer allowance.

Many domains have to share the various resources (processors, memory, etc) available on the servers. Stonerocket believe that no single domain or account should use excessive amounts of resources, as this may jeopardize server performance for the other domains.
In the event that an account is deemed to be using excessive data transfer (bandwidth) or resources, Stonerocket may suggest action to reduce bandwidth or resource use, or suggest moving to another hosting provider.

Backup`s \ Restoration Policy
Backup`s: If you need to backup your account you should use a FTP Client to download all your files and use php myadmin to export your mysql databases. please note* cPanel backup has been disabled
Restoration: If you have a full cPanel backup we can restore it for you, to do this we request that you upload the backup via FTP to your account and contact an Admin via PM with your account information, Backup`s must be no larger than 50mb in size.
We also strongly recommend that you backup your files and databases on a regular basis. StoneRocket does not backup your files.
