V. “Unlimited” usage policies.

“Unlimited” usage policies and definitions apply only to shared hosting.
What does unlimited mean?
Register.ly will only provide unlimited space and unlimited email accounts if the client is committed to the terms and conditions of this package.

Shared hosting stands for a group of websites hosted on one server. Thus, this service is only suitable for small businesses and start-ups and it does not fit the mid/big enterprise websites. Also, it was not designed for the web applications which are preferable to be hosted on Dedicated servers.

To ensure fairness for all clients that are using this service, Register.ly has the absolute right to apply limits and guarantees that prevent the misuse of this service.

Register.ly does not set limits on the amount of disk space a client can use for their website, provided the client’s use of storage complies with these Terms. Please note, however, that the unlimited plan is designed to host small websites. Register.ly does NOT provide unlimited space for online storage, backups, or archiving of electronic files, documents, log files, etc., and any such abuse of the service will result in the termination of the account, with or without notice. Accounts with a large number of files (inode count in excess of 250,000) can have an adverse effect on server performance. Similarly, accounts with an excessive number of MySQL/PostgreSQL tables or of database size (i.e., in excess of 3GB total MySQL/PostgreSQL usage or 2GB MySQL/PostgreSQL usage in a single database) negatively affect the performance of the server. Register.ly may request that the number of files/inodes, database tables, or total database usage be reduced to ensure proper performance or may terminate the account, with or without notice.

Register.ly does not set any limits on the amount of visitor traffic a web site can receive on in a given month, as long as the client’s use of the service complies with these Terms. In most cases, a client’s website will be able to support as much traffic as the client can legitimately acquire. Register.ly reserves the right to limit processor time, bandwidth, processes, or memory in cases where it is necessary to prevent negatively impacting other services on the same server.

Register.ly does not set any limits on the number of parked domains and subdomains a client can associate with the unlimited plan. However, we do limit the addon domains to 5 domain names.

VI. Liability. CLIENT specifically hereby waive any claim for damages of any kind whether direct, indirect, special, exemplary, punitive, incidental or consequential, loss of profits or loss of business as the result of any action taken in response to any claim of copyright infringement and/or violation of acceptable use policy without regard to whether or not the material claimed to have been infringing is later found to be infringing and/or in violation of the acceptable use policy.

VII. ASSIGNMENT. This agreement and the rights hereunder are not assignable or transferable except that Register.ly may freely assign all of its rights hereunder to any person or entity who shall become a principal owner, successor, or shareholder of Register.ly, or to any affiliated company or successor in interest of Register.ly. Any other attempted transfer or assignment of rights hereunder shall be null and void. Upon any such assignment by Register.ly to any other party, including to any affiliated company or successor in interest of Register.ly, you have the right to terminate this Agreement by giving notice thereof in writing to Register.ly and any such termination shall become effective thirty (30) days after the receipt of such notice by Register.ly
