Unlimited Hosting Policy

The term “unlimited” in usage policies and definitions is only applicable to shared and reseller hosting accounts.

What “Unlimited” means

The term “unlimited” in regards to disk space, bandwidth, and website plans indicates that there are no restrictions on the amount of resources you can utilize for your personal or small business website, as long as it adheres to the terms of this agreement. However, if your usage or content poses a threat to the stability, performance, or uptime of our servers, data storage, networking, or other infrastructure, you may need to upgrade to a VPS or we may take steps to limit the resources your website is consuming.

What “Unlimited” DOES NOT mean

Protozoa Host implements advanced measures to prevent abuse and safeguard its hosting subscribers and systems. The “unlimited” hosting service is not intended for a small number of subscribers to negatively impact the experience of others. The shared hosting service offered by Protozoa Host means that multiple subscribers’ websites are hosted on the same server and share server resources. The service is designed to meet the needs of small and medium-sized businesses worldwide and is NOT meant to handle the demands of large enterprises or non-typical applications that are better suited for a VPS or dedicated server. Protozoa Host will make reasonable efforts to provide additional resources to subscribers in accordance with these terms, including moving subscribers to larger shared servers if necessary. However, to maintain a consistent and high-quality experience for all subscribers, Protozoa Host has implemented automated safeguards to prevent any website from growing too rapidly and impacting the system until its resource needs can be evaluated

Unlimited Hosting Space; excessive SQL Database

Protozoa Host does not impose any restrictions on the amount of disk space a hosting subscriber can utilize for their website. Additionally, Protozoa Host does not charge any additional fees for an increased use of storage as long as it adheres to their terms of service. It’s important to note that Protozoa Host’s service is intended to host websites, and it does not provide unlimited hosting for online storage, media files, backups, or any other activities that may consume excessive disk space. Engaging in such prohibited activities will result in the termination of the hosting subscriber’s account, with or without prior notice.To maintain the optimal performance of the server, Protozoa Host may request subscribers to reduce the size of their databases if it exceeds 1 GB. Failure to comply with this request may result in the disabling of the subscriber’s account, with or without prior notice. Subscribers can create multiple databases, but the size of each database should not exceed 1 GB.

Unlimited File Transfer

Protozoa Host does not impose any limits on the volume of visitor traffic a website can receive or the amount of content a hosting subscriber can upload to their website within a given month. Protozoa Host also does not charge any additional fees for increased bandwidth usage, provided that the hosting subscriber’s use of the services adheres to their terms of service. In general, a hosting subscriber’s website should be able to handle the traffic it receives. However, Protozoa Host reserves the right to limit processor time, bandwidth, processes, or memory in cases where it may negatively impact other hosting subscribers.

Unacceptable Resource Usage

Protozoa Host prohibits the following actions:
  • Running cron entries with intervals of less than 15 minutes.
  • Executing any MySQL queries that run for longer than 30 seconds.
  • Consuming more than 25% of their system resources for a period longer than 90 seconds, through activities such as CGI scripts, FTP, PHP, HTTP, and others.
  • Allowing the size of each mailbox to exceed 5GB, or having a combined mailbox size per domain exceeding 50GB.
Protozoa Host reserves the right to take appropriate action, which may include disabling a hosting subscriber’s account, if these restrictions are not followed.
