Support Boundaries: KjohnHosting does not provide
any technical support at this time. Support for all aspects
of each customer's hosting account is the responsibility
of the customer. In some cases KjohnHosting will provide
specific support for a stated fee. Please send any inquiries
to Customer Care.
SPAM and Unsolicited Commercial Email (UCE): KjohnHosting
takes a zero tolerance approach to the sending of Unsolicited
Commercial Email (UCE) or SPAM over our network. Very
simply this means that customers
of KjohnHosting may not use or permit others to use our
network to transact in UCE. Customers of KjohnHosting
may not host, or permit hosting of,
sites or information that is advertised by UCE from other
networks. In addition, it is not acceptable to transmit
bulk email through remote
SOCKS, HTTP or other similar proxies who in turn make
a SMTP (TCP port 25) connection to the destination mail
servers. This technique may result
in account suspension or termination. Violations of this
policy carry severe penalties, including termination
of service. In order to prevent
unnecessary blacklisting due to spam we reserve the right
to occasionally sample bulk email being sent from servers.
Violation of KjohnHosting's SPAM policy will result
in severe penalties. Upon notification of an alleged
violation of our SPAM policy, KjohnHosting will initiate
an immediate investigation (within 48 hours of notification).
During the investigation, KjohnHosting may restrict customer
access to the network to prevent further violations.
If a customer is found to
be in violation of our SPAM policy, KjohnHosting may,
at its sole discretion, restrict, suspend or terminate
customer's account. Further, KjohnHosting
reserves the right to pursue civil remedies for any costs
associated with the investigation of a substantiated
policy violation. KjohnHosting
will notify law enforcement officials if the violation
is believed to be a criminal offense.
First violations of this policy will result in an "Administrative Fee" of $250 and your account will be reviewed for possible immediate termination. A second violation will result in an "Administrative Fee" of $500 and immediate termination of your account. Users who violate this policy agree that in addition to these "Administrative" penalties, they will pay "Research Fees" not
to exceed $175 per hour that KjohnHosting personnel must spend to investigate
the matter. PLEASE, DO NOT SPAM from your account.
As our Customers are ultimately responsible for the
actions of their clients over the KjohnHosting network, it is advisable
that Customers develop a similar, or stricter, policy for their clients.
BEGINNING IMMEDIATELY, anyone hosting websites or services on their
server that support spammers or cause any of our IP space
to be listed in any of the various Spam Databases will have
their account immediately removed from
our network. The account will not be reconnected until such
time that you agree to remove ANY and ALL traces of the offending
material immediately upon reconnection and agree to allow
us access to the account to confirm that all material
has been COMPLETELY removed.
Severe violations may result in immediate and permanent
removal of the account from our network without notice to
the customer. Any account guilty of a second
violation WILL be immediately and permanently removed from our network

with the Services, during the term of this Agreement.
KjohnHosting may maintain
and control ownership of all Internet Protocol numbers
and addresses that may be assigned to Customer by
KjohnHosting, and KjohnHosting reserves the right

and all such Internet Protocol numbers and addresses,
in its sole and absolute discretion. Our allocation

new policies state that use of IP addresses for IP
hosts will not be accepted as justification for new
IP addresses. What this means to you is that you MUST
use name-based hosting where possible. We will periodically
review IP address usage, and if we find that clients
are using IP addresses where name-based hosting could
we will revoke authorization to use those IP addresses
that could be used with name-based hosting.

the number of megabytes per month for the Services

bandwidth or disk usage exceeds the Agreed Usage.
Such corrective action may include the assessment of
additional charges, disconnection or discontinuance
of any and all Services, or termination of this Agreement,
which actions may be taken is in KjohnHosting's sole
and absolute discretion. If KjohnHosting takes any
corrective action under this section, Customer shall not be entitled
to a refund of any

First violation: Any User, which KjohnHosting
determines to have violated any element of this Acceptable
shall receive an email, warning them of the violation.

IP space involved in Spam or Denial-of-Service complaints
if it is clear that the offending activity is causing
great harm to parties
on the Internet. In particular, if open relays
are on your network or a customer's network, or if denial

have to do this before attempting to contact you.

you as soon as is feasible.

for any other reason which KjohnHosting chooses. If
inappropriate activity is detected, all accounts of
the Customer in
question will be deactivated
