MEGAHost Terms & Conditions


(i) UNLIMITED TRAFFIC does not apply to any domain account consuming 20% or more of systems resources. Following are a list of sites that will often require more than 20% of our systems resources: Multiple domains residing at a single IP address, domains with archives or galleries, (i.e. .gif, .jpg, .exe, .zip, .tar, etc.), and domain accounts offering download files.

(ii) We are not saying that your web site cannot contain such files, however if at any time they consume 20% or more of our systems resources you will be contacted to resolve the problem. (NB: None of web sites that we currently host come anywhere near to 20% usage.)


(i) These include spamming (sending unsolicited advertising to those with which the customer has no existing business relationship, posting off-topic advertising in newsgroups); spoofing (using a return email address which is not the valid reply address of the sender or sending an email message which does not contain enough information to enable the recipient to identify the party who is really sending the message; passive spamming (promoting a web site hosted by MEGAHost by spamming from some other source), trolling (posting controversial messages in newsgroups to generate responses), mail bombing (inundating a user with email without any serious intent to correspond), generating a higher volume of outgoing mail than a normal user (20% or more of available system resources), and subscribing someone else to an electronic mailing list without that person's permission.

A message is considered unsolicited if it is posted in violation of a newsgroup charter or sent to a recipient who has not requested the message. Making an email address available to the public does not constitute a request to receive messages.

Distribution of mass emailing programs is also prohibited. All recipients on a mailing list must have personally subscribed. Mailing lists may not be used to distribute unsolicited email. Any customer repeatedly "mail bombed" or that attracts such behaviour will be asked to leave.

If you are not sure if your actions will be in violation, please ask first.

(ii) AGE. The client must be 18 years of age to obtain our service.

(iii) ABUSE OF THE LEGAL RIGHTS OF OTHERS: Examples of unacceptable activities in this regard include, but are not limited too, posting private information about a person without their consent, infringing intellectual property rights, defaming a person or business, and knowingly making available code which will have a deleterious effect on third party computers. MEGAHost supports free speech on the Internet, and will not suspend or cancel a customer's account simply because it disagrees with the views expressed by the customer. Where there are allegations that a customer's on-line activity has violated the legal rights of a third party, MEGAHost will not substitute itself for a court of law in deciding tort claims raised by the third party.

(iv) ABUSE OF THE LAW: MEGAHost services may be used for lawful purposes only. Illegality includes, but is not limited to: drug dealing; attempting without authorization to access a computer system; pirating (distributing copyrighted material in violation of copyright law, specifically MP3s, MPEG's, ROMs, and ROM emulators); gambling; schemes to defraud; trafficking in obscene material; sending a message or having content that is obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy, or indecent with intent to annoy, abuse, threaten, or harass another person; threatening bodily harm or damage to individuals or groups; violating New Zealand export restrictions; stalking; or violating other law such as the Privacy Act or Human Rights Act. Linking to illegal material is also prohibited.

(v) PORNOGRAPHY: Pornography and sex-related merchandising, or links to such material, even if legal, is not an acceptable use of MEGAHost servers.

(vi) ABUSE OF MEGAHOST SERVER RESOURCES: Running programs in the background on an MEGAHost server without MEGAHost prior written authorization, or running chat rooms, Internet Relay Chat, IRC bots, and the like are not acceptable uses of MEGAHost servers. Further, any usage of twenty percent (20%) or more of our system resources is an undue burden on our system and is unacceptable. If your usage ever exceeds twenty percent (20%) of system resources, you will be contacted and asked to eliminate the problem. In addition, any domain that exceeds ten gigabytes of bandwidth traffic can be terminated without prior notice.

(vii) HACKING/CRACKING: MEGAHost reserves the right to report illegal activities to any and all regulatory, administrative, and/or governmental authorities for prosecution.

(c) OTHER BEHAVIOUR: The following examples of unacceptable behaviour are non-exclusive, and are provided for guidance purposes. If you are unsure if your actions will be a violation of our policies please contact us.
