Service Specific Policies.
"Unlimited" usage policy.
- What "Unlimited" means. Gibbc Network does not set an arbitrary limit or cap on the amount of resources a single Subscriber can use when subscribing to the Unlimited Hosting Service. In good faith and subject to these Terms, Gibbc Network makes every commercially reasonable effort to provide its Subscribers with all the storage and bandwidth resources needed to power their web sites successfully, as long as the Subscriber's use of the service complies with these Terms. By not setting limits on key resources, we are able to provide simple, consistent pricing to our Subscribers as they grow their websites. As a result, a typical website may experience periods of great popularity and resulting increased storage without experiencing any associated increase in hosting charges.
- What "Unlimited" DOES NOT mean. Gibbc Network employs complex mechanisms to protect its Subscribers and systems from abuse. Gibbc Network's offering of "unlimited" services is not intended to allow the actions of a single or few Subscribers to unfairly or adversely impact the experience of other Subscribers. Gibbc Network's service is a shared hosting service, which means that multiple Subscriber web sites are hosted from the same server and share server resources. Gibbc Network's service is designed to meet the typical needs of small business and home business website Subscribers in the United States. It is NOT intended to support the sustained demand of large enterprises, internationally based businesses, or non-typical applications better suited to a dedicated server. Gibbc Network will make every commercially reasonable effort to provide additional resources to Subscribers who are using their website(s) consistent with these Terms, including moving Subscribers to newer and bigger shared servers as necessary. However, in order to ensure a consistent and quality experience for all Subscribers, Gibbc Network does place automated safeguards to protect against any one site growing too quickly and adversely impacting the system until Gibbc Network can evaluate said sites resource needs.
- Gibbc Network does not set arbitrary limits on the amount of disk space a Subscriber can use for the Subscriber's website, nor does Gibbc Network charge additional fees based on an increased amount of storage used, provided the Subscriber's use of storage complies with these Terms. Please note, however, that the Gibbc Network service is designed to host websites . Gibbc Network does NOT provide unlimited space for online storage, backups, or archiving of electronic files, documents, log files, etc., and any such prohibited use of the Services will result in the termination of Subscriber's account, with or without notice.
- Gibbc Network does not set arbitrary limits on the amount of visitor traffic a web site can receive or on the amount of content a Subscriber can upload to his/her/its website in a given month, nor does Gibbc Network charge additional fees based on increased use of bandwidth, as long as the Subscriber's use of the Services complies with these Terms.
