Script Abuse Policy

ePerfect allows scripts written in languages such as PHP and Perl to be used on all Virtual Servers. Such scripts can be resource intensive however, and because a Virtual Server must be shared with other users, we must limit how much of the CPU can be used by any one account on a shared server.

What does ePerfect consider "SCRIPT ABUSE"?
Any site whose scripts are using excessive amounts of system resources. Excessive amounts is defined as any amount that results in substantial degradation of server performance. ePerfect is the sole determiner of what consititues degraded server performance.

Due to their use of flat files instead of databases, ePerfect does not allow the use of UBB or YABB bulletin boards. Use of these boards for large or very active forums, results in system performance degradation, and cannot be allowed in our shared server environment. ePerfect suggests using vBulletin or phpBB as a more efficient, database-driven alternative to these bulletin boards.

Why does ePerfect have this policy?
A Virtual Server is shared. As such, there are many accounts per machine. In all fairness, ePerfect cannot allow one or two clients to use all of the System resources on a shared machine and have all other clients on the machine suffer because of it. Excessive CPU usage by one or more clients causes extreme slowness in all areas: e-mail, Web sites, FTP, etc. In an extreme case, the server may crash and need to be rebooted.

What happens if I violate this policy ?
Any account that is found to be using an excessive amount of system resources will receive an e-mail warning from ePerfect. If you do not reduce the usage in a timely manner, your scripts will be disabled.
