General Acceptable Use Policy


The following statements pertain to all products and services offered by Midgard IT Ltd:

Illegal Activity

Customer may only use Midgard IT Ltd’s Server for lawful purpose. Transmission of any material in violation of any Country, Federal, State or Local regulation is prohibited. To this effect, child pornography is strictly prohibited as well as housing any copyrighted information (to which the customer does not hold the copyright or an appropriate license) on Midgard IT Ltd’s Server. Also, using Midgard IT Ltd’s servers or network to conspire to commit or support the commission of illegal activities is forbidden as well.


Websites dedicated to the discussion of hacking activities or the distribution of hacking tools are prohibited. Also, the usage of Midgard IT Ltd’s computer systems or network to access any system, service, or network without the owner’s consent is expressly forbidden.

Service Interruptions

Any activity which causes service interruptions to either Midgard IT Ltd’s network/servers or any outside network. This includes, but is not limited to, the execution of Denial of Service attacks or other maliciously configured software.

Anonymous Proxies

Anonymous proxies are easily abused and often cause a negative impact on both the servers and the network they are connected to. As such, they’re prohibited on Midgard IT Ltd’s network and servers.


Customer agrees to not have any content on their site that advocates, sells or in any way makes available tools or methods to send unsolicited e-mail or UseNet postings (spam), or to use Midgard IT Ltd’s Servers for relaying unsolicited e-mail or UseNet postings, or to use unsolicited e-mail or UseNet postings to advertise for their site hosted at Midgard IT Ltd. Any complaint we receive about a violation of this or the preceding two points will be taken very seriously and will result in immediate account cancellation without a refund.

Personal Information Harvesting

Collecting or using email addresses, screen names or other personal identifiers without the consent of the person identified (including, without limitation, phishing, Internet scamming, password robbery, spidering, and harvesting).


You agree that if the Midgard IT Ltd IP numbers assigned to your account are listed on an abuse database or blacklist like Spamhaus, you will be in violation of this AUP, and Midgard IT Ltd may take reasonable action to protect its IP numbers, including suspension and/or termination of your service, regardless of whether the IP numbers were listed as a result of your actions.


Usage of the Midgard IT Ltd network to impersonate another person or entity be it through Email, Internet Forums, or any other means, is strictly prohibited. This includes spoofing email or network packet headers whether or not it is done for malicious purposes.

Spam indexing

Customer agrees to not engage in activities pertaining to Black Hat SEO, Spam indexing, and so-called “Scraper sites.” These can all have a severely detrimental effect on server performance and are not permitted.

Any conduct that is likely to result in retaliation against Midgard IT Ltd’s network or website, or Midgard IT Ltd’s employees, officers or other agents, including engaging in behaviour that results in any server being the target of a denial of service attack (DoS).

Personal Backups

With the exception of Midgard IT Ltd Dedicated Server products, the customer agrees to make use of Midgard IT Ltd servers primarily for the purpose of hosting a website, and associated email functions. Data uploaded must be primarily for this purpose. Midgard IT Ltd servers are not intended as a data backup or archiving service. Midgard IT Ltd reserves the right to negotiate additional charges with the Customer and/or the discontinuation of the backups/archives at their discretion. If you exceed your allocated transfer bandwidth for a month, you will be billed at the rate of $1 per additional 10GB.

Shared Hosting Addendum

The following statements pertain exclusively to shared web hosting products and services offered by Midgard IT Ltd.


Adult Thumbnail Galleries/Banner Exchanges

You agree not to run a banner exchange, free adult tgp (thumbnail gallery post), or free adult image galleries on your website.

Abusive Scripts/Processes

Any script/process/etc that adversely affects the ability of any other customer to satisfactorily use their provided services is forbidden. This includes, but is not limited to, CPU-intensive CGI/PHP scripts and websites for which the scale of traffic has exceeded the acceptable limits of a shared hosting environment.

IRC Bots/Bouncers

All IRC bots and “bouncers” (bnc, etc) are forbidden.

BitTorrent software

While we recognize the value in the BitTorrent protocol as a distribution method, it is far too easily (and often accidentally) abused/misused and therefore not allowed on Midgard IT Ltd Shared Hosting services.

Proxy Software

All proxy software, anonymous or otherwise, is forbidden on Midgard IT Ltd Shared

Hosting services.

Network Daemons

Any process that opens a network socket to accept connections from external networks is forbidden. Processes are allowed to bind to the local host only, but are held to the limitations placed on all other processes. They must not use up more than their fair share of resources and they must not interfere with any other customers’ activities.

Anti-Spam Policy

In the past several years, the Internet has exploded with commercial activity. The breaking down of barriers between businesses and consumers has been facilitated by the rapid development of new technology, removal of ‘middlemen’, and tax rates favourable to on-line entrepreneurship.

We at Midgard IT Ltd are proud to support responsible commerce on the Internet – this is represented in our service offerings and unparalleled support. However, it has become apparent that the same environment that has helped this trend take off has also contributed to numerous cases of fraud and abuse of network resources.

In particular, “spam” has proven to be a major problem for many of our customers and the Internet at large. Spam is a common slang term referring to the sending of unsolicited email, instant messaging, or other communication to a large group of people at once. Variations on this practice include off topic (and usually promotional) messages on bulletin boards, guest-books, Usenet newsgroups, or chat rooms.

Spam is strictly against our Terms of Service, and will result in the immediate disablement without refund of any customers who are found to have used spam in conjunction with their Midgard IT Ltd account.

The following policy dictates in specific terms what is considered acceptable use of bulk email/messaging by Midgard IT Ltd:


Mailing list subscribers must specifically opt-into the list they are subscribed to. This applies to both new subscriptions and the bulk addition of addresses already subscribed via other means. Confirmation is handled using a single confirmation message sent to the subscriber’s email address. This mailing must contain a URL to the site’s privacy policy, a brief description of the mailing list, and a URL that the user must follow to confirm the subscription.

Mailing list subscriber information must include the date and time that the subscription was confirmed, as well as the IP address of the subscriber at the time of the confirmation. The user must be able to present this information at Midgard IT Ltd’s request.

The nature of email address use must be fully disclosed, either on the page the subscription is made from or with a prominent link to the site’s Privacy Policy. It must be made reasonably clear how a user’s email address will be used and in what circumstances it will be shared.

Lists cannot be procured from outside parties unless the email sender has procured a list from an organization that sells or otherwise shares email distribution lists, and all of the following conditions are met:

The selling organization maintains a publicly viewable privacy policy disclosing that such sales may occur.

The privacy policy is prominently linked to from the page the subscriber signed up from.

The privacy policy has not changed substantially since the user signed up.

Records are kept of the date, time, IP address, and form location where the subscribing user signed up from.

Lists procured from outside parties must have been consistently handled in a manner comparable to Midgard IT Ltd policies.

Users cannot populate lists with addresses obtained for a substantially different purpose than was originally disclosed to the user.

All subscriptions must be re-confirmed in the manner described in Subscriptions (Section 1) before being sent bulk email messages.

Mailing Practices

Users must not modify the headers of any message in such a way that purposefully obfuscates the origin of the message.

Undeliverable addresses must be removed from all future mailings after no more than 5 bounces.

Users are responsible for the practices of any affiliate program members they solicit the help of, as if they were hiring an outside advertising agency.

Users using either outside advertising companies or 3rd party mailing programs must abide by the same policies and practices as those using Midgard IT Ltd’s own bulk mailing list tools.

All mailings must provide clear and simple to follow instructions for opting-out of future mailings, and all reasonable attempts must be made to facilitate the removal of a mailing list subscriber at their request.


It is strictly prohibited in conjunction with your Midgard IT Ltd account to sell software designed specifically to facilitate the practice of spamming.


Predominately promotional messages must not be posted to bulletin boards, discussion forums, guestbooks, Usenet newsgroups, or any other similar service unless the operator of that service explicitly allows such messages. In the case of Usenet newsgroups, such messages must be specifically allowed in that group’s charter.


Midgard IT Ltd reserves the right to disable any account at any time should it feel there is a reasonable suspicion that it is being used in conjunction with the practice of spamming.

Customers must substantially address all spam related inquiries by Midgard IT Ltd personnel within 72 hours. Failure to respond within a reasonable period of time may result in the disablement of the user’s account.

By following these guidelines and respecting the privacy of your visitors, you can gain much from the responsible practice of commerce on-line. Of course, should you have any questions regarding the proper way to use bulk email with your web site, please contact us for more information?

All of the terms and restrictions mentioned above also apply to any account and its respective uses.

Unlimited Policy

What do you mean “Unlimited”?

What we mean is, you don’t have to worry about disk storage or network transfer when your site gets popular.

You DO still have to worry about plenty of other things though… if your site isn’t well optimized and is causing issues for others on your shared server (either because it’s pounding the CPU, hogging RAM, or doing tons of disk I/O), you may be asked to sign up for your own Midgard IT Ltd Private Server.

Trust us, every host out there has exactly the same limitations… we’re just trying to be up front about them!

What about databases?

You’re certainly allowed an unlimited number of MySQL databases, but in the interest of server stability we request that you try to keep them optimized and no larger than a few GB in size.

What’s not allowed in “Unlimited”?

Basically, sites whose essential purpose is to use disk or bandwidth. When making a website, you should be thinking about “How can I make an interesting site for my visitors while minimizing my server storage, bandwidth, file system, memory, and CPU impact as much as possible?”

The result will be a better experience for your visitors, your web host, and yourself!

Here are some specific examples of things not allowed:

Copyrighted content to which you do not hold usage or distribution rights.

File upload / sharing / archive / backup / mirroring / distribution sites.

A site created primarily to drive traffic to another site.

Making your account resources available to the general public.

Hey, that doesn’t sound very “Unlimited” to me!

Actually, for you, my dear Legitimate Website Owner, it is unlimited.

This whole page is just to announce to the <.1% of people who want to try and run free porn affiliate sites or animé video trading forums or host pirated rips of The Dark Knight on Midgard IT Ltd that we’re not having any.

But our pledge to you is to do our best to always keep your website, with the content you created, UP

Customer also agrees to abide by all applicable Terms set forth by all Midgard IT Ltd partners and subsidiaries.

Contract RevisionsWebsite & Cloud

Revisions to this Contract will be applicable to previous Contracts Revisions will be considered agreed to by the Customer on renewal of service as specified in Section – Financial Arrangements.


Customer may not transfer this contract without the written consent of Midgard IT Ltd.


These Terms and Conditions constitute the entire Contract and understanding of the parties. Any changes or modifications to these Terms and Conditions of Contract thereto are agreed to by the both parties upon renewal of services.
