These Policies, Guidelines, and Disclaimer are intended for all domains residing on DC Web Designs servers, including regular hosting clients, resellers, and their clients. We ask that all clients reselling our hosting services in any way, including those providing non-virtual hosting services, implement these same Policies, Guidelines, and Disclaimers into their own web sites to ensure that the same are understood and met by their clients.

RESELLER'S: DC Web Designs does not sponsor reseller packages.

Resellers and their clients are bound by these same Policies, Guidelines and Disclaimers. By reselling and purchasing DC Web Designs services, you hereby agree that DC Web Designs shall not be held liable for any promises or failure of same that Reseller's extend to their clients, including but not limited to, quality of service, financial obligations, financial losses or any other claim NOT provided to Reseller in writing by DC Web Designs. It is the legal duty and obligation of the Reseller to provide these policies and guidelines to its client(s).


UN-MONITORED TRAFFIC does not apply to any domain account consuming 20% or more of systems resources, or any site that consumes more than 10gig of traffic. Following are a list of sites that will often require more than 20% of our systems resources: Multiple domains residing at a single IP address, domains with archives or galleries, (i.e. .gif, .jpg, .exe, .zip, .tar, etc.), and domain accounts offering download files.

We are not saying that your web site can not contain such files, however if at any time they consume 20% or more of our systems resources you will be contacted to resolve the problem.

Please note that DC Web Designs has traffic bandwidth restrictions that vary depending on the hosting package. If you go over your limit, you may be charged a fee.


These include spamming (sending unsolicited advertising to those with which the customer has no existing business relationship, posting off-topic advertising in newsgroups); spoofing (using a return email address which is not the valid reply address of the sender or sending an email message which does not contain enough information to enable the recipient to identify the party who is really sending the message; passive spamming (promoting a web site hosted by DC Web Designs by spamming from some other source), trolling (posting controversial messages in newsgroups to generate responses), mailbombing (inundating a user with email without any serious intent to correspond), generating a higher volume of outgoing mail than a normal user (20% or more of available system resources), and subscribing someone else to an electronic mailing list without that person's permission. A message is considered unsolicited if it is posted in violation of a newsgroup charter or sent to a recipient who has not requested the message. Making an email address available to the public does not constitute a request to receive messages. Distribution of mass emailing programs is also prohibited. All recipients on a mailing list must have personally subscribed. Mailing lists may not be used to distributed unsolicited email. Any customer repeatedly "mailbombed" or that attracts such behavior will be asked to leave. If you are not sure if your actions will be in violation, please ask first ().

Age. The client must be 18 years of age to obtain our service.

Abuse of the legal rights of others:

Examples of unacceptable activities in this regard include posting private information about a person without their consent, infringing intellectual property rights, defaming a person or business, and knowingly making available code which will have a deleterious effect on third party computers. DC Web Designs supports free speech on the Internet, and will not suspend or cancel a customer’s account simply because it disagrees with the views expressed by the customer. Where there are allegations that a customer’s on-line activity has violated the legal rights of a third party, DC Web Designs will not substitute itself for a court of law in deciding tort claims raised by the third party.

Further, any usage of twenty percent (20%) or more of our system resources is an undue burden on our system and is unacceptable.
