Terms of service
As a provider of web hosting services and domains, we must comply with certain laws and regulations. U42 espouses ethical business practices and expects users, customers, affiliates and others to adhere to such standards.
While we strive to provide users with the discretion to post on their website any content they desire, we must also balance that desire with the community we serve, the public, and the laws where U42 does business and the regulations therein.
We reserve the right at our sole discretion to suspend or terminate any site hosted for any reason, including but not limited to, your violation of any laws, the terms and conditions of this Acceptable Use Policy or the terms and conditions contained in your web hosting agreement with U42, which is hereby incorporated by reference.
The Acceptable Use Policy below describes certain actions relating to the content and operation of your website which U42 considers to be inappropriate and thus prohibited. The examples identified in this list are merely provided as examples only for guidance purposes. If you are unsure whether any contemplated use or action is permitted, please contact us. Our right to remove, suspend or terminate any site hosted by U42 for inappropriate content under this policy shall not place an obligation on us to monitor or exert editorial control over any customer website.
Actions which we consider inappropriate and grounds for suspension or termination of your account include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Using your website to sell any goods or services that are unlawful in the location at which the content is posted or received or the goods or services delivered.

Use of services, your own or others to cause denial of service attacks against us or other network hosts, Internet users or to otherwise degrade or impair the operation of our servers and facilities or the servers and facilities of other network hosts or Internet Users.
While our shared services are suitable for the bulk of our customers, there comes a time for some websites when they are better suited for a larger plan, which allows for more dedicated CPU and memory resources. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to discontinue service to any customer with a website or hosted data that uses a resource consumption considered abusive when it is evident that the "fair-use" of shared resources of the server's CPU has been breached. This means if your website is considered to be "abusive" in terms of CPU and memory usage, we reserve the right to take your site offline. If this becomes necessary, you can either upgrade your hosting package, or request a refund of the amounts you have paid in advance for the services. Due to the severity of this action, and our ability to act quickly to rectify these situations to avoid server issues, we will do everything reasonably feasible to provide you with a prior warning to taking your site offline, but we accept no obligation to do so.
