18. Because the Internet is a global
communication tool, and we have clients from nearly every
country in the world it is difficult to dictate what is
considered "adult material." However, it is not
our function to discriminate against those who choose to
utilize adult content or adult related material. This being
said, there are still several reasons why SilverLineHosting.Com
has been forced to create its no adult sites policy for
its virtual server users.
19. Virtual account holders can receive
a refund if account is cancelled within the initial 30 days
after sign up. Reseller account holders can receive a refund
if account is cancelled within the initial 7 days after
sign up. If the account holder cancels after the time period
specified, there will be no refund given.
20. SilverLineHosting.Com. may temporarily

termination or denial will not relieve the Account Holder

becomes overdue, the account will be suspended. Interest
will accrue on the overdue account at a rate of 5% per month

25. You agree that SilverLineHosting.Com.
may establish limits concerning use of any SilverLineHosting.Com
service offered on any SilverLineHosting.Com. web site,
including without limitation the maximum number of days
that e-mail messages will be retained by any SilverLineHosting.Com.
service, the maximum number of e-mail messages that may
be sent from or received by an account on any SilverLineHosting.Com.
service, the maximum size of an e-mail message that may

the amount of storage available to users) or existence of
any SilverLineHosting.Com. service may change at any time.
does SilverLineHosting.Com consider "Adult Material?"
Any site whose revenue is gained
in part or whole from its adult content.
Photos or videos showing frontal
nudity on either men or women for non-scientific or non-artistic
Photos or videos showing graphic
violence or death.
Revenue-generating hyperlinks to
sites who violate policy #1.
Why does SilverLineHosting.Com
have this policy?
A virtual server is a shared environment where many servers
reside on each particular machine. This being said, consider
that an average "adult site" gets more hits than
100 standard websites. Some of the smaller adult sites get
around 5 GB of transfer per day. With these types of resources
being utilized, our servers would be severely slowed if
we allowed these high traffic sites to also reside on our
servers. On top of that, we would be forced to raise our
prices to pay for the additional bandwidth. We strive to
keep our servers fast and inexpensive, and our bandwidth
clear; therefore, adult sites are not an option.
SilverLineHosting.Com reserves the
right to decide what it considers "adult content",
"adult material", "ually explicit",
or "ually related". Let us know if you are
unsure of the approval of your site before placing an order.
