NOTE: Pornography and sex-related merchandising are prohibited on any of Arlin Technologies, Inc. servers. This includes sites that may infer sexual content, or link to adult content elsewhere. This is also true for sites that promote any illegal activity or content that may be damaging to Arlin Technologies, Inc. servers or any other server on the internet. Links to such materials are also prohibited.
In addition, any site selling or promoting bulk email services (spam) or software is forbidden.
Examples of non-acceptable content or links:
Arlin Technologies, Inc. will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of these provisions.
- Pirated software
- Hackers programs or archives
- Warez Sites
- Irc Bots
- Multiple hosts resolving at an IP or domain name that we provide
- Sites with banners, graphics, or CGI's running from their domain used on other domains
- Adult sites including bikini sites, or sites with links to such content.
Due to the unique resource characteristics and traffic patterns associated with certain types of sites, the following are limited to 3
gigs of free traffic:
- Sub-hosting - any domain housing additional users (except approved resellers)
- Shareware, sound, video, image and multimedia archives
- Mirror sites
- Distribution points
- Any site whose primary purpose is file distribution
Each account comes with its own cgi-bin. You are free to use any CGI scripts you wish, however we reserve the right to disable
any CGI script that effects normal server operation.
We do not allow clients to install their own chat rooms. These tend to be large system hogs and we cannot allow it as an account
option. We do provide Java chatrooms for a small extra charge that will more than fill your needs and run without hindering the
performance of the machine for others. You are limited to one chatroom on your domain.
We may allow programs to run continually in the background. These are considered on a one to one basis and an extra charge
will be incured based on system resources used and operational maintenance needed.
Commercial Advertising - Email
Our servers may not be the source, intermediary, or destination address involved in the transmission of spam, flames, or mail
bombs. Your domain may not be referenced as originator, intermediary, or reply-to address in any of the above. We consider
spam to be any mass unsolicited message in the mediums of Newsgroups and Email. If you are found to have spammed, then
we reserve the right to immediately, without warning, disable your domain. As such, any violation will result in immediate deactivation of services without refund.
When you apply for your own domain with us, we will have your server space ready for you usually within 24 hours. You will be
notified by email when it is completed, and you will be able to access your account using the IP# we assign you, right away! For
telnet and FTP access, you would put the IP# as the hostname. Just type yourdomain (minus the .com, .net, or .org extension) as
the userID. Enter your password (which we will supply you in your first email), and you are ready to start uploading your files.
You will be able to look at your html files with a web browser by typing, for example, http://129.334.002.18. Once your
domain has been activated by InterNIC, you will then use yourdomain.com as the hostname to access your files. IP numbers are
subject to change without notice, so please stop using your IP number to log in via FTP and telnet once your domain name
works. Domain names are being processed by InterNIC usually within 3 days. Send us email if your domain isn't activated within
5 days. We'll take care of the problem.
Refusal of Services
We reserve the right to refuse or cancel service at our sole discretion.
If any terms or conditions are failed to be followed it will result in grounds for account deactivation. We reserve the right to
remove any account with 15 days prior notice.
These policies may change without notice.
