Fair Usage Policy | In-House Web Hosting

What “Unlimited” means
ORCA.MKTG does not set a cap on the amount of space and bandwidth a single shared hosting subscriber can use. Subject to terms and conditions, ORCA.MKTG makes every commercially reasonable effort to provide it’s hosting subscribers with all the storage and bandwidth needs to power their websites successfully, as long as the Subscriber’s use of the service complies with these Terms. By offering unlimited resources, we are able to provide simple, fixed pricing to our hosting Subscribers as they grow their business online. As a result, a typical website may experience periods of great popularity and result in increased storage without experiencing any associated increase in hosting charges.

Fair Usage PolicyWhat “Unlimited” DOES NOT mean
ORCA.MKTG employs complex mechanisms to protect its hosting Subscribers and systems from any kind of abuse. ORCA.MKTG’s “Unlimited” hosting offering is not for single or few hosting subscribers to unfairly or adversely impact the experience of other hosting Subscribers. ORCA.MKTG’s service is offering shared hosting service, which means that multiple hosting Subscriber’s websites are hosted on the same server and share server resources. ORCA.MKTG’s service is designed to meet the typical needs of small and medium-sized businesses across the globe. It is NOT intended to support the sustained demand of large enterprises(kind of >3000 users), or non-typical applications better suited to a VPS or a dedicated server. ORCA.MKTG will make every commercially reasonable effort to provide additional resources to Subscribers who are using their website(s) consistent with these Terms, including moving Subscribers to newer and bigger shared servers as necessary. However, in order to ensure a consistent and quality experience for all Subscribers, ORCA.MKTG does place automated safeguards to protect against any website growing too quickly and adversely impacting the system until ORCA.MKTG can evaluate said sites resource needs.

Unlimited Hosting Space; excessive SQL Database
ORCA.MKTG does not set any specific limits on the amount of disk space a hosting subscriber can use for their website, nor does ORCA.MKTG charge additional fees based on an increased amount of storage used, provided the hosting subscriber’s use of storage complies with these Terms. Please note, however, that the ORCA.MKTG service is designed to host websites. ORCA.MKTG does NOT provide unlimited hosting for online storage, videos, images, audio, games, installers, executable files, backups, or archiving of electronic files, documents, log files, web spider or indexer, IRC, torrent, file sharing, peer-to-peer activities, testing environment etc., and any such prohibited use of the Services will result in the termination of hosting subscriber’s account, with or without notice. Accounts with an excessive database size (i.e., more than 1 GB) negatively affect the performance of the server. ORCA.MKTG may request that the database size is reduced to ensure proper performance or may disable the Subscriber’s account, with or without notice. Hosting subscriber’s can create multiple databases however size of each database should not be more than 1 GB.

Unlimited File Transfer
ORCA.MKTG does not set any limits on the amount of visitor traffic a website can receive or on the amount of content a hosting subscriber can upload to his/her/its website in a given month, nor does ORCA.MKTG charge additional fees based on increased use of bandwidth, as long as the hosting subscriber’s use of the Services complies with these Terms. In most cases, a hosting subscriber’s website will be able to support as much traffic as the hosting subscriber can legitimately acquire.

However, ORCA.MKTG reserves the right to limit processor time, bandwidth, processes, or memory in cases where it is necessary to prevent negatively impacting other hosting subscribers.
