This is also true for sites that promote any illegal activity or content that may be damaging to our servers or any other server on the Internet. Links to such materials are also prohibited.

Educational adult websites and adult e-commerce stores are allowed but due to such a fine line we recommend checking with Idut Hosting support before hosting such websites. Idut Hosting will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision.

SPAM and Unsolicited Email:

Idut Hosting takes a zero tolerance approach to the sending of Unsolicited Email (SPAM). Very simply this means that Clients of Idut Hosting may not use or permit others to use our service for sending SPAM Emails. Clients of Idut Hosting may not host, or permit hosting of, sites or information that is advertised by SPAM from other services. Violations of this policy carry severe penalties, including termination of service.

If a customer is found to be in violation of our SPAM policy, Idut Hosting may, at its sole discretion, restrict, suspend or terminate a customer's account. In addition, Idut Hosting may impose a £100 penalty for each spam policy violation. Idut Hosting solely reserves the right to refuse or cancel service to known spammers. Lastly, Idut Hosting reserves the right to determine what violates this policy. As such, any violation may result in cancellation of services without refund.

MailFoundry Spam Filtering Limits:

Some domain names may have too many mailboxes or receive such a high volume of spam email that it will not be possible for us to provide MailFoundry service to them, due to the extreme usage. While MailFoundry is a dedicated system for handling huge volumes of spam it does have limits. Should the amount of spam or number of mailboxes in use on a domain break what Idut Hosting believes to be realistic limit thresholds then we will inform you that MailFoundry services will not be continued for your domain. SpamAssassin will be supplied in replacement to MailFoundry. It may be possible to buy MailFoundry services for 'extreme usage' domains for an additional negotiable charge depending on usage history and expected MailFoundry processing requirements.

Scripting, Applications and Background-running Programs:

We do not allow background-running programs. This includes any IRC related software such as bouncers and bots. We provide a hosting service not a shell service. You are not allowed to compile and run software on our hosting servers.

You are free to use any scripts (such as php, cgi or perl) you wish provided they do not affect the normal operations of the server and they are not mentioned specifically below.

Scripts that are commonly known for causing server disruption include large cgi-based message forums, auctions, galleries, and banner exchanges. In the event a script affects normal server and/or administrative operations, Idut Hosting reserves the right to disable the account pending client cooperation and resolution.

Scripts we do not allow include:

- Chat servers/scripts of any kind are strictly prohibited.
- Formmail scripts using the filename "formmail" are prohibited.

Formmail and contact forms are acceptable providing the script is not named "formmail" for its filename and providing that you maintain the latest version of the script and it remains secure and un-abused by spammers.

We do allow you to have ONE remote MySQL user if requested. The user must have a fixed, non changing, IP address for us to grant access to. You can request a remote MySQL user via our helpdesk.
