Client hereby agrees that HostSG is responsible only for providing the Services set forth in Client’s Plan and this Agreement, and HostSG is not responsible for providing any other services or tasks.

1.4 Web Hosting Function. You acknowledge that the Budget Hosting, Starter Hosting and Cloud Sites service is offered as a platform to host and serve web pages and web sites and is not offered for other purposes, such as remote disk space storage. Accordingly, You understand and agree to use the web hosting service solely for the purpose of hosting and serving web pages as viewed through a web browser and the Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) protocol or other equivalent technology. HostSG Budget Hosting, Starter Hosting and Cloud Sites is designed to serve the web hosting needs of small, independently owned and operated businesses in the Republic of Singapore. It is not intended to support the greater web hosting needs of large enterprises or internationally based businesses.

1.5 Misuse of Shared System Resources. The abuse and misuse of shared system resources is a serious problem. Accounts on a shared server must share resources with other users, so we must limit how much of the CPU and RAM that can be used by any one account. In all fairness, we cannot allow one or two clients to use all of the system resources in a shared hosting environment. All other clients suffer because of it. Excessive CPU and RAM usage by one or more clients causes slowness in all areas.

We constantly monitor our servers for accounts that use more than their share of resources.

 

1.6 Unmetered Data Transfer. HostSG provides client with sufficient data transfer to ensure that client's services function properly under normal circumstances. However, in event that client's services uses excessive amounts of data transfer and affects other customers on the same server and/or network, HostSG reserves the full right to throttle bandwidth speeds or suspend client's services in order to ensure that other customers are not adversely affected at any time. HostSG will contact client to discuss upgrade to higher plans that will cater to client's increased traffic requirements.

HostSG is in no way responsible for keeping any files, databases, or any other web hosting data backed up. HostSG servers are not intended as backup servers and customers services may be suspended at the sole discretion of HostSG employees if it is found that services are being used for backup storage.
