Resources are defined as bandwidth, memory and/or processor utilization. We offers a shared web hosting service in which environment customers may share resources with other customers, therefore it is imperative that We control any excessive usage by customers so that they do not disrupt the service quality of other customers using the same resources. A website is considered using "Excessive amounts of resources" when it monopolies the resources available using 1% or more of system resources for longer than 60 seconds. There are numerous issues that could cause such problems, including but not limited to: cgi scripts, FTP, HTTP, etc. In the event of excessive resource usage SOSYS.NET may act in the following manner: if the excessive usage may cause a disruption of service to any other customer, we may suspend that customers' account prior to notify that customer, SOSYS.NET may also contact the excessive usage customer prior to taking any action if we feels that the excessive usage will not interfere with the service of any other customer. Client suspensions prior to notification by us is rare and is only implemented in extreme circumstances and is intended to prevent the misuse of our servers.

In the case that an attack does not affect other customers or the network, the service being attacked will normally not be taken offline or suspended. Customers who are the target of frequent or repeated denial of service attacks, if those attacks negatively impact the network or it's customers, may have the services affected by these attacks permanently suspended.
