Host Tornado shall be the sole arbiter of what is considered to be a high server usage level.

Host Tornado does not allow IRC server, IRC bots, or IRC shells to be operated on our network.

We do not allow proxy servers or scripts, torrent trackers or torrent clients to be run from our shared/reseller hosting servers.

Free Hosting Accounts

Host Tornado provides free hosting as a gift to our customers (free hosting is open to public). There are however some restrictions with using our Free Hosting.

We do NOT use any type of forced ads on our hosting, we do however ask that you help us out by posting a link back to us on your site somewhere. This will allow us to continue to offer free hosting and not discontinue it at any point.

Due to the lack of customers not linking back to us our free hosting now requires a link back or the use of our forced ads. If you would like to place a link to us on your website somewhere and have the forced ads removed please contact us support@hostt.net

Free hosting clients are NOT allowed to place any type of ad revenue on their websites, this includes Google AdSense and any type of affiliate marketing techniques. Meaning you can have a website that talks all about different types of electronics, but if you have links to any type of store where you will be generating revenue from clicks or purchases, that is not allowed.
If you want to place ads on your website you must purchase a paid hosting plan.

Free hosting is also not available for customers who will be uploading content stuffed websites. Meaning websites that are created for the sole purpose of generating revenue by clicks or purchases from the hundreds of pages that have been keyword stuffed for SEO.

Our free hosting is for businesses or personal use, but we draw a fine line when it comes to businesses. Business sites that are NOT eligible for free hosting include any type of site that has some type of revenue. We do allow specific revenue generating businesss for specific individuals like developers, coders, etc. It is hard to specifically say what is and isn't considered an allowed business please contact us if you have any questions about your website.

An example of an allowed business site is website design, programmers, or a business that does not generate revenue from selling products on their site (ie John's Nursery).

An example of businesses that are NOT allowed include online retailers, shops, or resellers. Again, if you are unsure if where your business falls in this criteria please contact us.

Free hosting is a gift, we reserve the right at any time to determine who is and is not eligible for free hosting. If we decide your website is either abusing, or misusing our free hosting service we reserve the right at any time to suspended the account without notice.


Host Tornado performs daily backups on all servers to ensure critical files are never lost. However Host Tornado is NOT responsible for lost data, time, income or any other resource due to faulty backups or non-existent backups.

Please always backup your own data for redundancy. For us to restore a backup for your account due an error made beyond our control, there is a $15.00 one time fee required. If your account or data is lost due to system or drive we will restore it at no additional charge. The data on our shared servers are backed up on a separate hard on a weekly and/or daily basis. Due to the nature of hard drives having errors or issues we can not ensure 100% recovery, however we will always strive to recover 100%. The charge for the restore is used to maintain the highest level of security and integrity on our backups and to strive to be able to help you restore data which may be unrecoverable without backups.

Client Responsibility

The client is responsible for all activity originating from the account unless proven to be a victim of outside hacking or address forgery. The client is responsible for securing their username/password. The client assumes responsibility for all material on their site that may be put on by a third party (such as the usage of Free For All links pages).

This level of knowledge varies depending on the anticipated use and desired content of the web space by the client.

CGI-Scripts: requires a knowledge of the UNIX environment, TAR & GUNZIP commands, Perl, C Shell scripts, permissions, etc. Mail: a use of mail clients to receive and send mail, etc. The client agrees that he or she has the necessary knowledge to create and maintain their web space.

"LIMITLESS" and "UNLIMITED" usage policies and definitions

What "UNLIMITED" and "LIMITLESS" means
Host Tornado does not set an arbitrary limit or cap on the amount of resources a single subscriber can use if under the "unlimited" or "limitless" plan. In good faith and subject to these Terms, Host Tornado makes every commercially reasonable effort to provide its users with all the storage and bandwidth resources needed to host their web sites successfully, as long as the users use of the service complies with these terms. By not setting limits on key resources, we are able to provide simple, consistent pricing to our users for when they grow their websites. As a result, a typical website may experience periods of great popularity and resulting increased storage without experiencing any associated increase in hosting charges.

What "UNLIMITED" or "LIMITLESS" does not mean
Host Tornado employs complex mechanisms to protect its users and systems from abuse. Host Tornados offering of "unlimited" services is not intended to allow the actions of a single or few users to unfairly or adversely impact the experience of other users. Host Tornados service is a shared hosting service, which means that multiple users web sites are hosted from the same server and share server resources. Host Tornados service is designed to meet the typical needs of small business and home business website users in the United States. It is NOT intended to support the sustained demand of large enterprises, internationally based businesses, or non-typical applications better suited to a dedicated server. Host Tornado will make every commercially reasonable effort to provide additional resources to users who are using their website(s) consistent with these terms, including moving users to newer and bigger shared servers as necessary. However, in order to ensure a consistent and quality experience for all users, Host Tornado does place automated safeguards to protect against any one site growing too quickly and adversely impacting the system until Host Tornado can evaluate said sites resource needs.

"UNLIMITED" or "LIMITLESS" hosting space
Host Tornado does not set artibtary limits on the amount of disk space a user can use for the users website, nor do we charge additional fees based on an increased amount of storage used, provided the users use of storage complies with these terms. Host Tornado is designed to host websites. We do NOT provide unlimited space for online storage, backups, or archiving of electronic files, documents, log files, etc., and any such prohibited use will result in termination of a users account with or without notice. Accounts with excessive number of files negatively affect the performance of the server and Host Tornado may request that the number of files be reduced to ensure proper performance.

"UNLIMITED" or "LIMITLESS" file transfer
Host Tornado does not set abitrary limits on the amount of visitor traffic a website can receive or on the amount of content a subscriber can upload to his/her/its webiste in a given month, nor does Host Tornado charge additional fees based on increased use of bandwidth, as long as the users use of services complies with these terms. In most cases, a users website will be able to support as much traffic as the user can legitimately aquire. However, Host Tornado reserves the right to limit processor time, bandwidth, or processes, memory, or number of files in cases where it is necessary to prevent negatively impacting other users.
