Users who choose to access this Site or the Services found at this Site are responsible for compliance with all local laws, rules and regulations.
This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the federal law of India and the state law of Andhra Pradesh, whichever is applicable, without regard to conflict of laws principles.
TITLES AND HEADINGS,INDEPENDENT COVENANTS,SEVERABILITY
The titles and headings of this Agreement are for convenience and ease of reference only and shall not be utilized in any way to construe or interpret the agreement of the parties as otherwise set forth herein. Each covenant and agreement to this Agreement shall be construed for all purposes to be a separate and independent covenant or agreement. If a court of competent jurisdiction holds any provision (or portion of a provision) of this Agreement to be illegal, invalid, or otherwise unenforceable, the remaining provisions (or portions of provisions) of this Agreement shall not be affected thereby and shall be found to be valid and enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law.
Email Usage Policy
Panelforce has a limit of 100 outgoing emails per hour per domain. This limit is applicable to Mailman also. If you break this limit and send emails they will bounce back with an undeliverable error. If this happens, it will take at least an hour before you can start sending emails. We suggest you wait for 1 year when the emails bounce back before sending them again.
For per user connected to an IP address our server has a limit of 30 POP3/IMAP checks. If you exceed this limit, it is more than likely that you will receive a wrong password error message or an error stating “Login incorrect”. Wait for an hour if you receive this error as it will automatically unlock. If the problem persists please make sure to disable auto check or set the limit to a higher value such as once every 10 minutes.
CPU usage Policy
The maximum limit of CPU usage with Panelforce is 15%. If this limit is exceeded, it shouldn’t exceed more than 90 seconds. This limit is highly unlikely for a regular website to exceed although in rare cases a script intensive site will take up more than 15% of the CPU usage.
Tricks to lessen the CPU usage.
• Reduce your number of banners and ads from other sites.
• Avoid using too many scripts, and do not force html to handle server-side code (like PHP and SHTML).
• Avoid using https protocol as much as possible; encrypting and decrypting communications is noticeably more CPU-intensive than unencrypted communications.
Flash, video, audio, and image files are downloaded to the browser. This uses bandwidth only.
Reseller servers also have the same limits as our Shared servers, although this limit is per cPanel and not the entire reseller package. If you do have multiple cPanel accounts responsible for server problems then we will suspend the account without any intimation.
