Since we now have AWStats installed as a server level stats package, individual installs are not required nor needed. Use our install if you want AWStats. This way we maintain security and integrity with a single install. The webupdate feature is NEVER allowed.
I don't see any major issues ether, you would be better off contacting the host itself if you really want to work things out

There is nothing for the client to install or have to worry about upgrading everytime a new exploit is announced (though, thankfully, hasn't been one in a while).
The way it's implimented at HostPC allows for the techs to maintain a more secure server environment. The TOS is correct in that CLIENTS are not allowed to install it on an individual basis for security reasons. The serverwide copy is kept up-to-date and certain exploitable features disabled (like the ability to update the stats on the fly from your browser..the #1 exploitable feature).
