    Important Update: Please note that we are no longer allowing cgi-based flat-file forums on the servers. Cgi-based flat-file forums were found to be causing problems on the servers under numerous occassions causing the servers to crash and apache to fail. Please use an alternate and more appropriate PHP/MYSQL based forum instead. PHP/MYSQL based forums are very resource and server friendly as well as easy to install. If you are still using the old cgi-based forum please comply to the new AUP and switch to the new MYSQL forum as soon as possible. Please contact support anytime if you have any questions in regards to this update.


    *Notice: Host Year does not send unsolicitated email. You are receiving this message because you are either a current client, you have shown interest in our services in the past, or you have been referred though our affiliates. If you wish to be removed from future mailings please reply to this message with the subject line "Remove". Note: You will then no longer receive news, updates or promotions. Thank You.

    Wow! Not only is the bandwidth free but they'll even let you have the traffic to your site for free! I just hate when you have to pay extra for your site visitors. It's a good thing there are companies just like this one and (insert name of lame company here) that are there to meet our needs!

    And you can tell they're really professional when they have a hotmail account. That's the first thing I look for in a web host. "Yep, they've got the good ol' hotmail set up and are avoiding the additional server strain caused when [email protected] emails are used."

    I'm also amazed that they can get sites listed on the world-famous Googley search engine (http://www.hostyear.com/faq.html) I can never get on Googley.

    They are almost as professional and reliable as Suck Ass Host.

    Wait a damn min here!!!

    What is considered "excessive amounts of resources"?
    Please understand that our #1 priority is to keep our servers in perfect operation conditions, so it will remain up and running at all times. If any account jeopardizes our server or network, we will resolve this problem as soon as possible. A website is considered using "excessive amounts of resources" when the website uses 20% or more of system resources for longer than 60 seconds. There are numerous issues that could cause such problems. This includes: cgi scripts, FTP, HTTP, or etc. There could also be many other problems that are considered heavy usage on system resources. We reserve the rights to suspend any hosting account that we feel is jeopardizing our network.
    What is 20% of unlimited?

    unlimited = infinity
    infinity * 0.2 = infinity
    infinity = unlimited

    So we're back where we started.

    Of course it's not an original image. If they can't do some simple text, then they cant make such a decent picture.
