Service Policy:

Server abuse.
If we determine that any site on our servers is using too much of the server's resources and therefore abusing the server, we have the right to suspend that domain without any notice. It is then up to the Client to contact us and formulate a plan to get that domain activated again. We are quick to suspend any domain that abuses the server's resources due to the shared nature of the server and the negative impact an abusing domain has on other domains on the same server.
No mass email marketing or free email businesses allowed!
We do not allow mass email marketing sites on our servers. It doesn't matter if it's opt-in email marketing. We simply do not allow sites of that nature to be hosted in this shared environment. Sites such as "safe lists" and "free email" are also strictly prohibited. We reserve the right to shut down such sites because we consider them harmful to the server's performance.
We react quickly and seriously to violations, and we further reserve the right to terminate the services, without prior notice, of any Client disregarding this policy.
We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason not prohibited by law. We also reserve the right to terminate service to any Client for any reason not prohibited by law.

Fee Increases.
IST may increase fees for services by providing notice to Client of such new fees at least ten (10) days prior to the beginning of the next Billing Cycle. If Client does not give written notice of non-renewal, the Client shall be deemed to have accepted the new fee(s) and any subsequent Terms.
