A. Shared Hosting
4.1.Shared hosting space is intended for use to web files, active e-mail and content of the hosted User Websites, not for storage (whether of media, e-mails, or other data) or backups.
4.2. Shared hosting space further may not be used as offsite storage of electronic files, e-mail or FTP hosts.
4.3. Hostimul expressly reserves the right to review every user account for excessive usage of CPU, bandwidth, disk space and other resources that may be a result of your violation of the Acceptable Use Policy.
4.4. Hostimul may, in its sole discretion, terminate access to the Services, apply additional fees, or remove/delete User Content for those User accounts that are found to be in violation of Hostimul policies. You hereby agree that Hostimul shall have no liability due to any action that Hostimul may take, including without limitation suspension or termination of Services in connection with your violation of this section.
4.5. Hostimul does not set defined limits on the amount of disk space a User can use for the User's Website or charge fees based on the amount of storage used in some shared hosting plans. However, the use of Hostimul resources must be consistent with a shared hosting environment and must otherwise comply with the Agreement. 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 database tables (in excess of 5000 database tables) or of excessive database size (in excess of 10GB total database usage or 5GB database usage in a single database) negatively affect the performance of the server. In the event User exceeds these amounts, Hostimul may request that a User's number of files/inodes, database tables, or total database usage be reduced to ensure proper service performance. Hostimul reserves the right to terminate a User account, with or without notice, for excessive use of resources that result in a degradation of server performance or the Services.
4.6. Hostimul does not set arbitrary limits on the amount of visitor traffic User Websites can receive or on the amount of content a User can upload to User Websites in any given month, nor does Hostimul charge additional fees based on the increased use of bandwidth, as long as the User's use of the Services complies with the Terms of Services. In most cases, User Websites will be able to support as much traffic as the User can legitimately acquire. However, Hostimul reserves the right to limit processor time, bandwidth, processes, or memory in cases where it is necessary to prevent negatively impacting other Users.
B. VPS and Dedicated servers
4.7. VPS and Dedicated server usage are limited by the resources allocated to the specific plan that you have purchased.

As a web host, Hostimul is not the publisher of user-generated content and we are not in a position to investigate the veracity of individual defamation claims. Rather, we rely on the legal system and courts to determine whether or not material is defamatory. In any case in which a court of competent jurisdiction, as determined in Hostimul's sole discretion, orders material to be removed, Hostimul will disable access to such material.
