It is your responsibility to ensure that
scripts/programs installed under your account are secure and permissions of
directories are set properly, regardless of installation method. When at all
possible, set permissions on most directories to 755 or as restrictive as
possible. Users are ultimately responsible for all actions taken under their
account. This includes the compromise of credentials such as user name and
password. It is required that you use a secure password. If a weak password
is used, your account may be suspended until you agree to use a more secure
password. Audits may be done to prevent weak passwords from being used. If
an audit is performed, and your password is found to be weak, we will notify
you and allow time for you to change/update your password.

emergency at its sole discretion.
BeOnlineToday reserves the right to
charge the holder of the account used to send any unsolicited e-mail a clean
up fee or any charges incurred for blacklist removal. This cost of the clean
up fee is entirely at the discretion of BeOnlineToday.
You agree to supply appropriate payment for the services
received from BeOnlineToday, in advance of the time period during which such
services are provided. As a client of BeOnlineToday, it is your
responsibility to ensure that your payment information is up to date, and
that all invoices are paid on time. BeOnlineToday provides a minimum10 day
grace period from the time the invoice is generated and when it must be
paid. Any invoice that is outstanding for 10 days and not paid will result
in a $10 late fee and/or an account suspension until account balance has
been paid in full. The $10 late fee is applied in addition to whatever else
is owed to BeOnlineToday for services rendered. Access to the account will
not be restored until payment has been received.

access to the account at any time with or without notice.
of our staff in any medium or format will result in the suspension or
termination of your services.
Customers may cancel at any time via a
cancellation notice email to email@example.com
methods of payments are non-refundable, and refunds will be posted as credit
to the hosting account:
* Money orders
no refunds on dedicated servers, administrative fees, install fees for
custom software, or domain name purchases. Refund requests for shared
accounts will be refunded on a prorated basis of any unused time.
Violations of the Terms of Service will waive the refund policy.
User may not:
a) Use 25% or more of system
resources for longer then 90 seconds. There are numerous activities that
could cause such problems; these include: CGI scripts, FTP, PHP, HTTP, etc.
b) Run stand-alone, unattended server-side processes at any point in time on
the server. This includes any and all daemons, such as IRCD.
c) Run any
type of web spider or indexer (including Google Cash / AdSpy) on shared
d) Run any software that interfaces with an IRC (Internet Relay
e) Run any bit torrent application, tracker, or client.
You may link to legal torrents off-site, but may not host or store them on
our shared servers.
f) Participate in any file-sharing/peer-to-peer
g) Run any gaming servers such as counter-strike, half-life,
h) Run cron entries with intervals of less than 15
i) When using PHP include functions for including a local file,
include the local file rather than the URL. Instead of
include("http://yourdomain.com/include.php") use include("include.php")
The use of more than 250,000 inodes on any shared account
may potentially result in a warning first, and if no action is taken future
suspension. Accounts found to be exceeding the 100,000 inode limit will
automatically be removed from our backup system to avoid over-usage. Every
file (a webpage, image file, email, etc) on your account uses up 1 inode.
Sites that slightly exceed our inode limits are unlikely to be
suspended; however, accounts that constantly create and delete large numbers
of files on a regular basis, have hundreds of thousands of files, or cause
file system damage may be flagged for review and/or suspension. The primary
cause of excessive inodes seems to be due to users leaving their catchall
address enabled, but never checking their primary account mailbox. Over
time, tens of thousands of messages (or more) build up, eventually pushing
the account past our inode limit. To disable your default mailbox, login to
cPanel and choose "Mail", then "Default Address", "Set Default Address", and
then type in: :fail: No such user here.
8.) Bandwidth Usage
are allocated a monthly bandwidth allowance. This allowance varies depending
on the hosting package you purchase. Should your account pass the allocated
amount we reserve the right to suspend the account until the start of the
next allocation, suspend the account until more bandwidth is purchased at an
additional fee, suspend the account until you upgrade to a higher level of
package, terminate the account and/or charge you an additional fee for the
overages. Unused transfer in one month cannot be carried over to the next
9.) BeOnlineToday will not activate new orders or activate new
packages for customers who have an outstanding balance with BeOnlineToday.
For a new order to be setup or a new package to be activated, you must have
a balance of $0.00, unless otherwise stated by BeOnlineToday in writing
10.) Shared / Semi-dedicated Servers
Shared accounts may not resell
web hosting to other people. Semi-dedicated servers are not backed up. You
must maintain your own backups.
11.) Dedicated Servers
BeOnlineToday reserves the right to reset the password on a dedicated server
if the password on file is not current so that we may do security audits as
required by our datacenter. It is the responsibility of the client to ensure
that there is a valid email address and current root password on file for
their dedicated server on file to prevent downtime from forced password
resets. BeOnlineToday reserves the right to audit servers as needed and to
perform administrative actions at the request of our datacenter. Dedicated
servers are NOT backed up by us and it is the responsibility of the client
to maintain backups or have a solution for this. You may purchase an
additional hard drive and maintain backups to it as the most simple
solution. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to obtain a
secondary hard drive. It is your responsibility to maintain backups.
12.) Price Change
We reserve the right to change prices listed on
beonlinetoday.com, and the right to increase the amount of resources given
to plans at any time.
Discounts and promotion
codes are reserved for first-time accounts *or first-time customers* only

otherwise specified. If you have signed up using a particular domain, you

sales department and the appropriate invoices will be added to the account.

termination of the account.
