To keep this pricing down, we ask that you follow our acceptable use policies.  If you have any questions about these policies, please send your questions to

eCommerceDiscovery reserves the right to refuse service to anyone at any time. However, if eCommerceDiscovery should deem it necessary to initiate termination of services with you, eCommerceDiscovery specifically agrees to provide reasonable access to you in order to allow you to download any files which may still reside on the web site or server being removed from the network.  In no event shall eCommerceDiscovery be liable for any loss, loss of data, or other commercial damage, including but not limited to special, incidental, consequential or other damages, which result from this termination of services.

Web-site Content.  The content of your website will remain on your virtual or dedicated server and is not available to any other entity. You have the right to retain on your virtual or dedicated server; any and all files that you seek to hold that do not violate the following rules.   Customers are prohibited from transmitting on or through any of eCommerceDiscovery's services, any material that is, in eCommerceDiscovery's sole discretion:  unlawful, obscene, threatening, abusive, libelous, encourages criminal mischief, gives rise to civil liability, or otherwise violates any local, state, federal, or international law and/or treatise. In short, eCommerceDiscovery hosting services may only be used for lawful activities
Adult websites are permitted any accounts ; all material must be legal within the United States.

Sites which violate any of these rules are subject to immediate suspension without prior notice. EcommerceDiscovery technicians do not normally check the content of our clients' sites to protect the privacy of our clients. However, we will conduct a full investigation and cooperate with the proper officials if a site is suspected to contain any illegal materials, with or without prior notice.

We Strongly suggest you read ADULT FAQ in our Support area under FAQ section.

Additionally, Adult websites are restricted to monthly contract only.

Network. Our Virtual and Dedicated servers were designed to give you the maximum freedom of administration and access to the Internet at the lowest cost available. Our Network usage is open to all eCommerceDiscovery users. Your server is welcome on our network as long as your site does not create a problem for the network.  High Network traffic or throughput is not a problem at eCommerceDiscovery, but extreme network traffic or extreme uploading and downloading can create problems.  Your maximum throughput allowed by your website is an estimate of your usage. You are allowed to exceed your maximum usage without being shut off.  You will be billed for the additional throughput on your next billing cycle. Please help eCommerceDiscovery plan for the future and popularity of your website. If you know in advance due to advertising, publicity, or general interest that your throughput will exceed 2 times the amount allowable by your plan, please contact us at   This will ensure no downtime and maximum availability of your website at all times.   We can upgrade you to another service plan or make other arrangements to save you money and to ensure your site is available at all times.
eCommerceDiscovery customers may not use our network to circumvent user authentication or security of any host, network, or account. This includes, but is not limited to, accessing data not intended for the customer, logging into a server or account the customer is not expressly authorised to access, password cracking, probing the security of other networks or directly violating the security policy of another organization.  Customers are also not allowed to interfere or deny service to any user, host, or network by flooding, mail bombing, or attempts to overload or crash the host network. Any violation of the network guidelines set forth will result in deactivation of your virtual or dedicated server for resolution.

Mass Mailings.  eCommerceDiscovery has a zero tolerance policy on SPAM, Junk E-mail or UCE.  Spam, Junk-mail and UCE are defined as: the sending of the same, or substantially similar, unsolicited electronic mail message, whether commercial or not, to more than one recipient. A message is considered unsolicited if it is posted in violation of a newsgroup charter or if it is sent to a recipient who has not requested or invited the message. UCE also includes e-mail with forged headers, compromised mail server relays, and false contact information. This prohibition extends to the sending of unsolicited mass mailings from another service, which in any way implicates the use of the eCommerceDiscovery servers and/or network. Violation of the above terms will result in one or all of the following: A warning from eCommerceDiscovery personnel by E-Mail or Telephone. Removal of DNS for the advertised/originating site. Temporary shutdown of the website/server or a block on outgoing mail. Permanent disconnection of service.
Repeat violation of the above terms will result in the following actions:

Immediate disconnection of service with no re-activation
A US$1000 fee assessed and charged to your account for violation
Additional US$10 fee charged to your account per E-Mail sent after notification
If your actions have caused eCommerceDiscovery servers or IP Addresses to be placed on ANY blackhole lists and other mail filtering software systems used by ISP’s and Web Hosting companies around the world, you will be assessed a $1000 charge to your account and $150 per hour for administrative charges incurred to remove and protect our servers and/or IP Addresses. If you have further questions about our mass mailing policy, please send them to . If you want to report abuse by one of our users, please send the e-mail to .
Mailing Lists:  Our mass mailing rules also apply to mailing lists, list servs, or mailing services you may contract with.  Our policy is the following:  An acceptable mailing list will be focused at a target audience that has voluntarily signed up for your e-mail information or that has made their e-mail address available for distribution of information from you.  Your own list servs in which customers have signed up for in the past, is a valid mailing list.  If one of your members asks to be removed, please remove them as soon as feasibly possible. Internally created mailing lists are valid as long as your customers agree to receive the e-mail. Purchased mailing lists are generally a violation of the rules because you have not received authority from the recipient to send them an e-mail.  The final rule to all mailing lists is simple:  if your customers begin to send spam complaints to eCommerceDiscovery about your e-mail, you will be bound to the terms of mass mailings listed above.  If you have direct questions in reference to mailing lists, please send your question to

Password Protection: eCommerceDiscovery will turn over the administrative username and password for your contracted virtual or dedicated server at the commencement of the contract.  This username and password will be kept in your confidence throughout the contract term. This current username and password will be provided back to eCommerceDiscovery personnel at the end of your term.  Failure to provide administrative access to a server after the service term will result in formatting of all hard drives located on the server. It is the customers responsibility to keep the administrative username and passwords during the term of the contract

Copyright Infringement – Software Piracy:  During the term of the hosting contract, eCommerceDiscovery grants Customer a non-transferable, non-exclusive license to use the Software, in object code form only, for its internal needs, to be used solely on the Hardware provided, and solely in conjunction with the Services.  Customer agrees that it will not, directly or indirectly copy the Software, except as is necessary to install on Hardware and for internal, archival purposes.  In the event Customer makes any copies of the Software, Customer shall reproduce all proprietary notices on such copies;
reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, modify or otherwise attempt to derive source code from the Software; sell, lease, license, transfer, give possession of, or sublicense the Software or the documentation to others; write or develop any derivative or other software programs, based, in whole or in part, upon the Software or any Confidential Information.
The location of third party software on your virtual or dedicated server that violates Copyright law is prohibited. eCommerceDiscovery will work with the appropriate authorities in locating and removing any and all software that is deemed to be used in violation of a valid software license.   Please do not locate, use, install, execute, or store software that you do not own a valid software license to, on eCommerceDiscovery virtual or dedicated servers.  Violators will be terminated

IP Addresses: eCommerceDiscovery MAY assign and allow the use of IP addresses to the customer for the length of the contract. These IP addresses are the sole property of eCommerceDiscovery or its network provider, are non-portable, and will be retained after service has ceased.  eCommerceDiscovery does reserve the right to change the customer IP address designation at any time. The use of an IP Address outside of your assignment by eCommerceDiscovery will result in a $150 per hour administrative fee to restore correct IP addressing. This is also viewed as a breach of network security and your virtual or dedicated server will be taken offline until the problem is resolved.  Administrative fees will be billed to your account the following business day.

Suspension:  eCommerceDiscovery specifically reserves the right to suspend network service to your virtual, dedicated or co-located server at our discretion. Suspension will only occur for violation of our AUP, non-payment for services, or by request of legal authorities with proper legal documents. Suspension will only occur for the absolute minimal amount of time to resolve the issue at hand.

SERVICE INTERRUPTIONS.  eCommerceDiscovery shall not be liable for failure or delay in performing its obligations hereunder if such failure or delay is due to circumstances beyond its reasonable control, including, without limitation, acts of any governmental body, war, insurrection, sabotage, embargo, fire, flood, strike or other labor disturbance, interruption of or delay in transportation, unavailability of, interruption or delay in telecommunications or third party services, failure of third party software or inability to obtain raw materials, supplies, or power used in or equipment needed for provision of the Services.  Customer understands and agrees that occasional temporary interruptions of any Internet Services may occur as normal events in the provision of the Internet Services.  eCommerceDiscovery agrees to exercise reasonable care to prevent such occurrences; however, under no circumstances will eCommerceDiscovery be held liable for any financial or other damages due to such interruptions.  In no event shall eCommerceDiscovery be liable to Customer or any other person for any special, incidental, consequential or punitive damages of any kind, including, without limitation, refunds of fees, loss of profits, loss of income or cost of replacement services.
