Acceptable Use Policy
Dedicated to providing superior quality, affordable web hosting
Purplecat is dedicated to providing superior quality, affordable web hosting to promote creative, informational, and enjoyable aspects of the modern information age.
Purplecat does not allow the use of its servers for unsolicited electronic mail (SPAM) or the hosting of adult oriented membership sites. Purplecat does not support any illegal, detrimental, or otherwise shady activity. Insecure Content Management System (CMS) codebase or plugins are not permitted and will be configured to auto-update or removed. Starting in 2016, to further ensure the smooth operation of mail service, only individual mail accounts are permitted on our servers. All list oriented ‘broadcast’ style mail must be sent through third-party services or dedicated mail services built for that purpose.
Purplecat reserves the right to review all content and request that some be removed, or to terminate hosting contracts, without refund if an account is found to be in opposition of the mission statement above.
Termination of your hosting agreement must be made in writing 30 days before the end of the current billing period (annual quarter).
Whether managing your domain’s registration or not, Purplecat Networks Inc. will never modify the listed Registrant (legal owner) of your domain without your written request.
Websites with overdue outstanding balances may be replaced by a purplecat.net banner page. Once suspended, a $25.00 reactivation fee will be added to the total amount due.
Purplecat reserves the right to modify these policies without notice.
Receipt of payment for hosting by Purplecat Networks Inc. signifies that you agree to the terms of our standard hosting agreement as applicable to your package level which will be automatically adjusted based on your site’s usage trends.
