Terms of Service

By accepting our Terms of Service, you also agree to our Privacy Notice and Data Use Policy. Please click here for more information on our Privacy Notice and Data Use Policy All users of Stable Cloud services, and all customers upon signing up for Stable Cloud services, agree to comply with Stable Cloud Terms of Service ("TOS"). The spirit of the TOS is to ensure customers are using Stable Cloud services with due regard to the rights of other Internet users and in conformity with the requirements of the Stable Cloud network environment. The TOS are not exhaustive and Stable Cloud reserves the right to add, delete, or modify any provision of its TOS at any time without notice, effective upon either the posting of the modified TOS to www.stablecloud.co.uk or notification of the modified TOS. Any complaints about a customer's violation of the TOS should be sent to [email protected]. Please see our abuse terms for more details on abuse policy. When you agree to the terms, you are also agreeing to our Billing terms. Except when expressly agreed to the contrary in writing by an authorized representative of Stable Cloud, this TOS supersedes any other agreement with Stable Cloud, whether written, oral, by conduct, or otherwise.

Server Resources

Any Web site that uses a high amount of server resources (such as, but not limited to, CPU time, memory usage, and network resources) will be given the option to reduce the resources used to an acceptable level. Stable Cloud will be the sole arbiter of what is considered to be a high server usage level. Any Web Hosting account deemed to be adversely affecting server performance or network integrity will be shut down without prior notice. Any script that consumes large amounts of resources is not allowed, such as (but not limited to): Bots, proxy scripts, rapid leech scripts, torrent related scripts, chatting or chat room scripts, PTC (Paid-to-click) site scripts, file or image hosting scripts, mail-bombers or spam scripts, topsites scripts, auto-blog scripts and plugins. Such scripts will be terminated immediately with no prior notice and account owners will not be eligible for a refund. We provide shared hosting, therefore, any script you run that will consume large amounts of resources affects other customers on your server negatively, so please use common sense when using a script. If you are unsure of any script, before running the script in your account, please contact Stable Cloud Sales or Support to ensure the script is allowed. No account should not use more than 25% of their CPU limit consistently for more than 30 minutes. If you are consistently using 25% or more CPU, you will need to upgrade to the next available hosting plan. If you are using the maximum hosting plan and are still using 25% or more CPU consistently, then you have most likely outgrown a shared hosting environment and should therefore obtain a VPS or dedicated server to better suit your needs. Any account suspended or terminated due to violation of our Terms of Service will not be eligible for a refund, including during our 30 day money back guarantee period.

E-Currency Mining

Due to their resource abusive nature, any/all types of e-currency mining is not allowed on our servers. This includes all service/server types. Clients found to be knowlingly and willingly mining on our servers will be terminated immediately and no refunds or credits of any kind will be given.

Spam/Bulk Mail

Stable Cloud has a "No Tolerance" policy on Spam and bulk mail. Sending unsolicited, bulk and/or commercial messages over the Internet or by text messaging (known as "spamming") is prohibited, regardless of whether or not it overloads a server or disrupts service to Stable Cloud customers. Stable Cloud also does not allow CAN-SPAM compliant bulk email or consider emails not Spam just because you include an Opt-Out notice. The term "spamming" also includes, but is not limited to, maintaining an open SMTP policy, sending unsolicited text messages, engaging in spamming using the service of another ISP or IPP and referencing in the spam a Web site hosted on a Stable Cloud server, and selling or distributing software (on a Web site residing on a Stable Cloud server) that facilitates spamming. If a Stable Cloud server IP has become blacklisted due to spamming by a users domain name hosted on our servers, the violator will face immediate termination and no refunds will be given. Stable Cloud reserves the right to determine, in its sole and absolute discretion, what constitutes a violation of this provision. Any client found to be spamming may face a spam cleanup fee from $250 - $500 depending on the circumstance and level of cleanup involved. Any account suspended or terminated due to spamming will not be eligible for a refund.

Denial of Service Attacks

"Stress testing" or purposely receiving DDoS/DoS attacks is not tolerated on our servers. This also includes sending a DDoS/DoS or taking part in a DDoS/DoS from any Stable Cloud account, be it shared/reseller/vps or dedicated server. Any account found actively and knowingly sending abusive traffic will be immediately suspended and possibly terminated with no refunds given. Offering/promoting/selling DDoS for hire services or booters is not tolerated and will cause immediate suspension/termination.

Inodes are the amount of all the files located on your account. For example, an email stored in your account will be 1 inode, an email that contains 2 attachments will be 3 inodes. Any image, file, video, HTML file, folder and script file are each considered inodes. We do not impose an inode limit, but instead offer a "fair usage" policy. If we find the account is using an abusive amount of inodes which is causing disruption for other clients, we will have no choice but to intervene which may result in account suspension.

Unlimited Bandwidth

Bandwidth usage in our shared hosting environments is considered unmetered. We do not impose a bandwidth limit, but instead offer a "fair usage" policy. If we find the account is using an abusive amount of bandwidth, we will have no choice but to intervene which may result in account suspension. Accounts willingly and knowingly using an abusive amount of bandwidth will face immediate suspension and/or termination and will not qualify for any refund.

Disk Space Usage

Account disk space is meant for files related to your websites only. Using your disk space for backups of any kind, file sharing or any type of short or long term storage is not permitted.

It does not cover any areas where stablecloud.co.uk has no direct influence, such as backbone provider failures, fibre-optic main line cuts, DNS or Domain Registrar issues with subscriber's domain name, connection issues between the client's location and stablecloud.co.uk data center. This uptime guarantee is also not applicable if the service interruption was caused by external issues such as Acts of God, Wars or any other natural or unnatural events that stablecloud.co.uk cannot directly influence. To request a service credit due to an uptime concern, please submit a request for this guarantee via Stable Cloud' web site. If requesting a "service credit" we ask that the client briefly explains the reasons for doing so. Include any documentation supporting your request.
