Abuse policy
Web design UK MySQL web hosting
This policy is subject to change, so please check regularly for updates. This policy is in addition to Last Digital Terms and Conditions.
.1) Web Hosting
1.1) Last Digital reserves the right to suspend or cancel a customer's access to any or all services provided by Last Digital, where Last Digital decides that the account has been inappropriately used. Last Digital reserves the right to refuse service and /or access to its servers to anyone.

1.2) Scripts on the site must be designed to produce web-based content, and not to use the server as an application server. Using the server to generate large volumes of email from a database is an example of activity that is not allowed. Scripts should not attempt to manipulate the timeouts on servers. These are set at the present values to ensure the reliability of the server. Sites that reset these do so because they are resource intensive, and adversely affect server performance and are therefore not allowed.

1.3) Last Digital will disable any domain that fails to adhere to the following criteria as soon as we are made aware, in line with current working practices:

1.4.1) The primary purpose of any site must be to provide web-based content to viewers. Files on the site must be linked to the web site.

1.4.2) The primary purpose of any script must be to produce a web page. Scripts that send a single email based upon user entered information, or update a database are acceptable. Scripts that send bulk email or perform processor intensive database processes are not allowed. All outgoing mail is monitored and filtered.

1.4.3) Sites must not contain Warez, illegal or copyright material. The onus is on you the customer to prove that you own the rights to publish material, not for Last Digital to prove that you do not.

1.4.4) Sites must not contain MP3 files, as they do not represent active web content. Other multimedia files are acceptable if they are configured to stream to the client rather than download.

1.4.3) Sites must not contain password protected archive (e.g. zip or rar) files, or data back ups.

1.4.6) Sites must not contain pornographic or other lewd material. Adult Material includes all pornography, erotic images, or otherwise lewd or obscene content. The designation of "adult material" is left entirely to the discretion of Last Digital.

1.4.7) Sites must not use excessive amounts of server resources. These include bandwidth, processor utilization and / or disk space. Please see the 'High Resource Use Policy' in the General Terms and Conditions.

1.4.8) Sites must not contain scripts that attempt to access privileged server resources, or other sites on the same server.

2.3.1) Where we have received significant volumes of complaints concerning unsolicited mail originating from or unsolicited email being sent to promote sites being hosted on a Last Digital server.
