Graphic Designs provides
web hosting to many clients, and we have a
responsibility to protect each client and to
provide the best services available. The
following guidelines were established to
ensure these obligations are met.

Web & Graphic Designs servers. This includes sites
that may infer sexual content, or links to
adult content elsewhere.
Also prohibited are
sites that promote any illegal activity or
present content that may be damaging to
hosting servers or any other server on
the Internet. Links to such materials are also

Email address or domain that is maintained on
our machine as a reference is STRICTLY
Accounts in violation
of our spamming policy WILL BE DELETED
Web & Graphic
Designs will be
the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a
violation of this provision.
Chat Rooms &
We do not allow clients to install their own
"CGI Chat rooms or Message boards".
These tend to be a large drain on system
resources and we cannot allow it as an account
option. CGI Chat rooms are absolutely
prohibited in all situations.
Should you require a
chat room, it must be in the JAVA language.
We may allow programs to run continually in
the background. These are considered on a
case-by-case basis and an extra charge may be
incurred based on system resources used and
operational maintenance needed. We reserve the
right to refuse such programs as well.
We do not allow IRC or IRC bots to be operated
on our servers.
Shell access is a privilege not automatically
setup on accounts. If you wish to have
shell access on your account you must request
it from support. You will not be charged extra
for this feature however you will be asked to
explain your need for shell access and it will
All users have use of unlimited sub-domains.
This is intended for personal use. Any one
offering free sub-accounts will have
sub-domains removed. Of course giving
your friends and family free accounts is not a
big deal. If we see that you are advertising
free accounts to the public then we have a
problem. Sub-domains are not automatically
turned on with new accounts, they must be
requested. There is no extra charge for
sub-domains to be activated.
Any attempt to undermine or cause harm to a
server, or customer of ours is
strictly prohibited. Sharing your accounts
resources with another domain is strictly
prohibited. This means you are not
permitted to host a message board, chat
room or other resource intensive program for
another domain. Pictures and other files
linked for download are ok but remember this
will use your accounts bandwidth.
Refusal of Service:
We reserve the right to refuse, cancel, or
suspend service at our sole discretion.
