You are here: Legal Notices > Misuse of Account Features


Operating any service which makes an account feature available to third parties for any use other than normal access to that account's web site is forbidden. Operating any service which enables or assists anonymous or abusive behaviour by third parties is forbidden. Operating any service which affects the stability or reliability of any Plutus™ Internet Services Pty (Ltd.) server or network component, impacts other users or the company negatively, or degrades quality of service is forbidden.

This includes but is not limited to third party access to CGI services, database hosting, counters, banner exchanges, autoresponders, mailboxes, mail forwarding, mail filtering, and content publishing systems. All account features are to be used solely in order to develop and implement the web site(s) associated with that account. Resellers may make reasonable use of account features shared between multiple accounts they are being billed for.

This means that, for example, you cannot:
resell autoresponders to third parties
run a service like hotmail.com
run a service like pobox.com
run a service like tripod.com
run a service like linkexchange.com
run a service like thecounter.com
run CGI scripts for other sites
host a remailer
Certain usages are acceptable on our dedicated server options. Those exceptions will be made on a case-by-case basis only, and Plutus™ Internet Services Pty (Ltd.) reserves the right to discontinue service for any system whose maintainer is unable or unwilling to control abuse or related problems
