    Rules for Web Hosts
    Hosts are welcome to participate on this forum, but are not allowed to advertise their business by plugging their company and/or URL outside the advertising forums.
    1. NO offers with "unlimited" or "unmetered" transfer/bandwidth/space. There is no such thing.
    2. Virtually unlimited/unmetered offers; use common sense. If it seems virtually impossible, it will be removed.
    3. Co-branded affiliate free hosts (byet, 0catch, attractsoft, vistapanel, etc) may not advertise their host anywhere. The link is ok in signatures though.
    4. Hosting offers that are replies to a poster's request must include ALL of the following information UNDER 25 LINES [including BLANK lines]
      Quote:
      1. The URL to the plan
      2. The price
      3. Describe or name the features you offer that match the original request.
    5. Copy/Paste hosting offers not allowed; posting the exact same package, text, etc. over and over to various threads. More Info
    6. Web hosts are not allowed to reply to another web hosts thread, unless it's an offer for servers which the web host is honestly interested in. Web hosts may also not post bad comments about other hosts ("host bashing")
    7. Specific Requests: If a poster asks for a specific feature, such as Ruby on Rails or PHP, and your hosting offer does not SPECIFICALLY INCLUDE information saying it offers this, it will be removed.
    Additional Rules for Advertising Forum and Hosting Offers forums:
    • Only one new thread per week
    • Don't push your own thread up [if your post needs additional information, edit your original post]
    • Hosts may not reply to other hosts' threads
    Warnings
    If you receive a warning from us for breaking the rules you risk getting banned if you continue your abuse. With every warning you get points. Some offenses will result in up to 5 points, some will only result in a 1 point infraction. The points expire after a certain date. When you have 10 active not expired points you get banned until the points have expired.

    If you do serious harm or abuse to this forum you get instantly banned with no warning. For instance posting ad spam. Warnings are infractions without points, so it's more of a way for the moderators to inform you not to do that again.

    If one of your posts have been deleted or if you have been banned and you can't understand why, please contact us.

    NEW MEMBERS: We will manually moderate your first few posts to ensure you are not a spam bot. You will also be unable to use PM's during this time. No need to post twice if you don't see your post appear, just wait until it gets approved.

    We reserve the right to modify and amend these terms at any time without prior notice. It is your responsibility as a member to stay informed of our current policies. Additional rules may apply for individual sections of the forum. See sticky threads at the top of each forum you post at.

    Public posts debating moderators' enforcement of the rules will be removed. Feedback about the rules and/or moderation should be sent in private to the moderators or through this form.

    Any abuse towards our moderators will result in warnings or suspension of your account.

    Special thanks to Matt8 for initiating and creating the update to the current rules.
