- Unmetered Bandwidth & Use of servers for bandwidth intensive purposes
Using our services to host applications that produce high bandwidth usage patterns is prohibited without the prior consent of Creative Web. We don’t allow using the Service to download or transmit torrents and running Plex or similar media server/service. Please contact us before signing up. Failure to contact us may result in your server being rate-limited or turned off.
- Tor, VPN or Proxy service
If you are running a Tor, VPN or Proxy service, you are responsible for the sub-users that connect to it. There is no way to tell the difference between abuse from a user and abuse from sub-users, so malicious activity from your sub-users will flag your account. This can lead to us suspending your account and destroying your virtual servers. Because of the risk to your account, we do not recommend running open services where any user can connect. While we do not restrict the software you choose to install, you are responsible for how it is used and how freely available you make the service.

For all unscheduled interruptions in the provision of the Services, which are due to hardware or telecommunications failures that last longer than 5 minutes, Creative Web shall offer compensation to the Customer.
Creative Web will notify the Customer by e-mail or on Creative Web’s website about scheduled interruptions in the provision of the Services at least 24 hours in advance, with the exception of important security updates and patches which Creative Web may deploy without prior notice.
In case of an interruption in the Services, the Customer has to notify Creative Web by support ticket or email. The interruption is deemed to begin when the failure starts to affect the Customer’s use of the Services, and to end when the failure has been corrected.
When a failure in the Services has been corrected, Customer may request compensation via a support ticket. The compensation will be paid to the Customer’s service account in the form of credits and may not be exchanged for cash or other forms of payment.
