Hosting Terms of Service

Internet Lynx has a responsibility to protect each client and provide them with the best service possible. The following guidelines were designed to ensure that our services remain of the utmost quality, by preventing the actions of one client from adversely affecting others.

The Terms of Service (TOS) are the rules and regulations for using our hosting services. All use of our hosting services is subject to these terms. Please read them carefully and ensure that you understand and agree to all parts. Your use of Internet Lynx's services implies your agreement with these terms.


Any questions regarding this agreement should be sent to Internet Lynx prior to signing up for service.

End User Agreement

Customers may not sublease, sub host, or give away control of any portion of their Internet Lynx space and/or resources (including, but not limited to, e-mail accounts, space, ftp accounts, etc.), unless otherwise stated in writing.


All services provided by Internet Lynx may be used for lawful purposes only. Transmission, storage, or presentation of any information, data or material in violation of any Australian Federal or State law, or any United States Federal, State or City law is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to: copyrighted material, material we judge to be threatening or obscene, or material protected by trade secret and other statute. The subscriber agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Internet Lynx from any claims resulting from the use of the service which damages the subscriber or any other party.

Note: Pornography and sex-related merchandising are prohibited on any Internet Lynx server. This includes sites that may imply sexual content, or Link to adult content elsewhere. This is also true for sites that promote any illegal activity or content that may be damaging to Internet Lynx servers or any other server on the internet. Links to such materials are also prohibited.

Examples of non-acceptable content or links

Internet Lynx will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision, and reserves the right to deactivate and remove any site at any time for this reason without refund!

Copyright Violations

Internet Lynx will respond to all reports of infringement that are formatted in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and any other applicable copyright laws. We will act in accordance with the DMCA when handling infringement reports.

System Resource Usage

If we (Internet Lynx staff) determine that a customer's account is utilizing an unacceptable amount of system resources, we may temporarily deactivate the account in question. If we deem it necessary, an eviction notice may be sent to the customer of an offending account providing them with ten (10) days in which to locate a new provider. This only occurs in extreme cases.

Internet Lynx will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision. Because of the nature of this provision, each account will be considered and analyzed individually.

Domain Parking Circumvention

Any attempt to circumvent domain parking restrictions by using selective HTTP redirects or any other method to send traffic from parked domains to sites other than the main site is strictly prohibited. If multiple domain names with separate content are required the appropriate account type must be used.

Chat Rooms

We do not allow clients to install their own chat rooms. These tend to be large system hogs and we cannot allow it as a account option. Clients are free to use any and all of the three chat systems that come pre-installed on all accounts.

Background Running Programs (bots/daemons/monitors)

Customers are not permitted to run programs in the background on shared hosting servers. This tends to use a lot of system resources, and can impair service to other customers on that server.


Internet Lynx's hosting accounts include a nightly backup service but these backups are for internal administrative purposes only, and are in NO WAY GUARANTEED! Customers are responsible for maintaining their own backups on their own personal computers. Internet Lynx does not provide any sort of compensation for lost or incomplete data in the event that backups do not function properly, even if the malfunction was due to negligence on Internet Lynx's part. We will do our best to ensure complete and accurate backups, but assume no responsibility for this duty. Always back your site up to your personal computer! We make no guarantees about the availability of backups.

Cron Jobs

We do allow Cron Jobs to be conducted on our servers. You can setup and manage the cron jobs for your account from the "Cron" section of NetAdmin.

IRC (Internet Relay Chat)

We do not allow IRC or IRC bots to be operated on our servers. Any account found to be in violation of this provision will be immediately suspended and/or deactivated and no refund will be issued.

Shell Access

Shell access is not provided on hosting accounts.

Unsolicited Email (SPAM)

SPAMing, or the sending of unsolicited email, from a Internet Lynx server or using a return email address that is maintained on a Internet Lynx server is STRICTLY prohibited. Using SPAM to advertise a site hosted on Internet Lynx's network also constitutes as a violation of this provision. Internet Lynx will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision. Sites found to be in violation of our SPAM policies will be immediately deactivated and no refund will be issued.

Help us STOP SPAM! Please contact us immediately to report a violation of our SPAM policies. Don't delete the message - we will want to examine it.

Server Abuse

Any attempts to undermine or cause harm to a Internet Lynx server or customer of Internet Lynx is strictly prohibited.

Internet Lynx will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision. Customers found in violation of this provision will be subject to account deactivation without refund. Internet Lynx will turn all available information about abuse incidents, including customer contact data, over to the proper authorities and press charges.

Failure to Follow Policies

Failure to fully comply with these terms is grounds for account suspension and/or deactivation (with or without refund at Internet Lynx's discretion). Any accounts and/or servers contained within Internet Lynx's network must adhere to the above policies.

We reserve the right to remove any account without prior notice. If we deactivate your account for violating policy, you will forfeit your rights to a refund--and none will be given. No refunds for advanced payment. Our normal policy is a warning first, and account deactivation the second offense, but no warning is required.

Internet Lynx reserves the right to deactivate and remove any site hosted on our servers that contains any content that it deems in its sole discretion to be unacceptable, undesirable or contraindicated.
