Terms of Service
READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY BEFORE USING ANY EXServers SA SERVICE. THIS IS A LEGALLY BINDING AGREEMENT BETWEEN CUSTOMER (referred to herein as “Customer”) AND EXServers SA.
EXServers SA reserves the right to refuse or terminate service to anyone, at any time and for any reason, including but not limited to violation of EXServers SA’s Acceptable Use Policy. Should EXServers SA terminates Customer’s service for a reason other than violation of the Acceptable Use Policy, EXServers SA will issue Customer a refund for the remaining paid period of service. Under no circumstances is EXServers SA responsible for any damages resulting from termination of service. EXServers SA reserves the right to refuse service to particular individuals or entities, at its sole discretion, with or without cause.
Scripting and Program
It is the Customer’s responsibility to ensure that scripts/programs installed under Customer’s account are secure and permissions of directories are set properly. Permissions for most directories must be set as restrictive as possible such as 755 to avoid being hacked or compromised. Customer is ultimately responsible for all actions taken under Customer’s account. This includes the compromise of credentials such as user name and password. It is required that Customer use a strong and secure password. If the password is weak, customer’s account may be suspended until the password is replaced with a strong and secure password.
Customer may not use 25% or more of system resources for longer than 90 seconds. Account will be suspended until customer reply with next action plan. If the account overload again, EXServers SA reserves the right to terminate the account permanently or impose an overload penalty fees to the customer. To avoid this suspension or penalty fees, EXServers SA advises customers not to use our shared hosting accounts for the following usage, as they generally will overload. These activities are unattended server-side processes, torrent application, tracker, file-sharing, peer-to-peer activities, IRC chat module, video streaming, gaming applications, web spider or indexer, daemons and heavy cron-jobs.
CPU and Memory Limit
EXServers SA use Cloudlinux (LVE) to ensure Linux Shared Hosting accounts receive a fair share of resources. LVE is a kernel level technology developed by the CloudLinux team. The technology has common roots with container based virtualization and uses cgroups in its latest incarnation. It is lightweight, and transparent. The goal of LVE is to make sure that no single web site can bring down your web server. Today, a single site can consume all CPU, IO, Memory resources or apache processes and bring the server to a halt. LVE prevents that. It is done via collaboration of apache module, PAM module and kernel
- CPU Limit
Each account allow 25% of total CPU of the server available to LVE. If your account hits this limit, your website will slow down.
- Memory Limit
Each account can use up to 2GB of virtual memory and 1GB of Physical memory. If your account hits this limit, your website will show a 500 error message.
- Entry Processes
We provide up to 25 concurrent connections. You won’t normally hit this limit unless you have poorly coded scripts that fail to execute properly. Your website will show a 508 error if this limit is reached. If you find your account is continuously hitting the CloudLinux limits and it is affecting the running of your website, please contact support to discuss options. We can assist with diagnosing any problematic scripts to help reduce usage or help you upgrading to a dedicated environment.
EXServers SA does not set a limit or cap on the amount of resources a single Customer can use. In good faith and subject to these Terms, EXServers SA makes every commercially reasonable effort to provide its Customers with all the resources needed to power their web sites successfully. EXServers SA’s offering of “unlimited” services is not intended to allow the actions of a single or few Customers to unfairly or adversely impact the experience of other Customers.
In a shared hosting server, multiple Customer web sites are hosted from the same server and share server resources. EXServers SA’s service is designed to meet the typical needs of small business and home business website. 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.
EXServers SA will make every commercially reasonable effort to provide additional resources to Customers who are using their website(s) consistent with these Terms, including moving Customers to newer and bigger shared servers as necessary. However, in order to ensure a consistent and quality experience for all Customers, EXServers SA does place automated safeguards to protect against any one site growing too quickly and adversely impacting the system until EXServers SA can evaluate said sites resource needs. Accounts with a large number of files (inode count in excess of 200,000) can have an adverse effect on server performance. Similarly, accounts with an excessive number of MySQL/PostgreSQL tables (i.e., in excess of 1000 database tables) or of database size (i.e., in excess of 3GB total MySQL/PostgreSQL usage per account or 2GB MySQL/PostgreSQL usage in a single database) negatively affect the performance of the server. EXServers SA may request that the number of files/inodes, database tables, or total database usage be reduced to ensure proper performance or may terminate the Subscriber’s account, with or without notice. Apart from this, all shared hosting plans are set with an hourly sending limit of not more than 200 emails within a given hour. This policy is important to prevent spamming activities either deliberates or through poorly secured computers that are hacked for sending spamming emails.
Unlimited Domain Hosting. EXServers SA does not set arbitrary limits on the number of domain names a Customer can associate with the Customer’s web hosting account. However, EXServers SA reserves the right to limit processor time, bandwidth, processes, or memory in cases where it is necessary to prevent negatively impacting other Customers.
Customer is allocated a monthly bandwidth allowance and it varies according to the package purchased. Should the Customer’s account pass the allocated amount, the account will automatically be suspended. The account will be unsuspended when the next allocation period starts or when the Customer upgrade to a higher level of package or pay additional fees for the overages. Unused bandwidth in one month cannot be carried over to the next month.

EXServers SA reserve the right to change any packages or prices listed in our website and has the right to adjust the amount of resources given to the packages at any time. Should the Customer request to upgrade the features of the subscribed package, there will be an upgrade fee incurred.

EXServers SA also reserves the right to deliver the order with a similar specifications or higher. EXServers SA will notify CUSTOMER of such decisions.
