Chat Rooms*

Background Running Programs and Cron Jobs*

Awesome Web Hosting may allow programs to run in the background. These programs will be considered on an individual basis and customers will incur extra charges based on system resources used and operational maintenance needed. If you wish to run background programs please contact Awesome Web Hosting at support@awesomewebhosting.com so that we can arrange set-up.


Awesome Web Hosting does not allow IRC or IRC bots to be operated on our servers.

Awesome Web Hosting will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision. Customers are also in violation of this provision if they engage in spamming using the service of another ISP or IPP, but reference in the spam a web site hosted on a Awesome Web Hosting server. Violators will be assessed a minimum fine of $200 and will face immediate suspension.
