Unlimited Traffic:

We are pleased to offer our clients unlimited Web page traffic. What this means if we will not stop incoming traffic to your site if you go over the 25 GIG per month limit. Instead, you will be notified that you are over the 25 GIG limit and be billed at $3.00 per addition GIG of traffic. To maintain the integrity of our service, the following restrictions apply: 

NOTE: Since there seems to be so many questions about the statements below. Here is the way we look at this. Let's say you have a great site and you are running a million hits a month and all is good... what happens when a site gets on the server who is getting 30 million hits a month... inadvertently his site will keep everyone else's from working... We will contact you if there is a problem and we will resolve it together.
- Sites with archives or galleries (.gif, .jpg, exe, zip, tar, etc.)

Meaning if your site has tons of downloads or pictures. NOTE: You must be putting a serious drain on our system before we say anything.

- Sites using more than 20% of system resources:

Host4Profit.com will contact you if your traffic becomes so heavy that it uses 20% of a machines resources. Sites using this much resources would need to be upgraded. This isn't much to worry about because most will never reach this amount of traffic.

- Chat Rooms:

We do not allow clients to install their own chat rooms. These tend to be a large drain on system resources and we cannot allow it as an account option.
