Payment Policies and Fees

Full payment is required before any hosting service is rendered, which includes renewals. Over usage fees are calculated and invoiced at the beginning of each cycle for the previous cycles usage.

To cancel your subscription(s), services and/or account, please login to Paypal and cancel your K-Host web hosting subscription(s).

It is the Customers responsibility to secure e-mail confirmation from K-Host that account has been cancelled. If the client has not yet received e-mail confirmation of account cancellation, then the account remains active, and you may continue to be invoiced.

If Customer has a balance due at the time of cancellation, including any over usage fees accrued, this balance must be paid in full. Cancellation does not absolve Customer of any outstanding financial obligations. All K-Host accounts must be paid in full before the cancellation will be considered complete.

Transferring your domain to another provider or nonuse of your hosting account does not constitute canceling your account. You must notify K-Host to formally cancel your account to avoid further charges.

Acceptable Use Policy

Email Policy:

Mail Lists: We have a strict policy regarding UCE/Spam on our network, but we do allow use of mailing lists within the constraints of our spam policy. However, sending thousands of e-mails off of a given server can impact the performance of the server. Therefore we limit the amount of e-mail allowed on our Shared Web Hosting Servers to no more than 1000 e-mails per day and 30 emails in 10 seconds per e-mail account.


SPAM / UCE (Unsolicited Commercial E-mail)

K-Host is committed to a zero-tolerance, anti-Spamming policy on our network. Under this policy, we prohibit Spam, or any unsolicited commercial email, from being sent either: Over the K-Host network, by customers or any other users of the K-Host network; AND/OR over ANY network— if the message sent advertises or mentions a site hosted on the K-Host server. This also includes:

We react quickly and seriously to violations, and we further reserve the right to terminate the services, without prior notice, of any customer disregarding this policy. Accounts canceled due to spam will be billed a "clean up" fee of $500.

All services provided by K-Host may be used for lawful purposes only. Transmission, storage, or presentation of any information, data or material in violation of any United States Federal, State or City law, or in violation of the laws of any country, is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to: copyrighted material, trademark, intellectual property, material we judge to be threatening or obscene, material that advocates or calls for the commission of crimes or civil harms to any person, group of people, corporation, country, or any entity, or material protected by trade secret and other statute without proper authorization. The subscriber agrees to indemnify and hold harmless K-Host from any claims resulting from the use of the service which damages the subscriber or any other party.

Examples of unacceptable content or links:

K-Host will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision.

Pornography and Adult Content is prohibited on all K-Host Shared Web Hosting servers. This includes sites that may infer sexual content, or links to adult content elsewhere. K-Host will be the sole arbiter in determining violations of this provision and includes but is not limited to the following:


CGI Scripts Policy

Unfortunately, many good things are turned on us to be used for nefarious activities. Commonly used scripts are frequently exploited to allow unauthorized access to the systems they are running on. Others just require more resources than is allocated on a shared server environment.

Consequently, in order to keep K-Host network and servers safe, we may need to take actions that inconvenience our good customers. Any time we find scripts or other commonly used tools that can become easily compromised or impact other users by using too many server resources, we may need to disable scripts or other tools installed and used by our customers.

Although our servers are managed, we do not monitor or restrict the programs and scripts you run on your servers unless they place our network at risk. We do recommend that you keep your scripts current to reduce the risk of exploitation.

Whenever possible, we will notify our customers in advance.

Please contact our technical support team if you have questions regarding for 3rd party scripts.

Resource Abuse

System resource abuse is defined as any site whose traffic, programs and/or processes are using excessive amounts of system resources, such as cpu usage and memory, for example. Excessive amounts is defined as any amount that results in substantial degradation of server performance. K-Host is the sole determinant of what constitutes degraded server performance.

Examples of banned software, processes and programs include, but are not limited to:

We allow customers to set up cron jobs to perform routine functions automatically. Due to the impact on the server, running some automated processes can take up considerable server resources and in those cases, our technicians may disable the cron job.


Traffic Policy

K-Host allows for very generous traffic, and most sites never exceed 4 GB per month, unless they offer shareware, sound, video, image and multimedia archives, are mirror sites or any site whose primary purpose is file distribution. K-Host customers are discouraged from storing any files that cause excessive traffic on K-Host shared web hosting servers. Please contact K-Host Technical Support team for more information. Again, most of the sites do not fall into this category and never reach our traffic limits. For customers with this type of traffic, you may want to consider a web hosting plan which provides more resources and less expensive over bandwidth fees.

We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason not prohibited by law. Also we reserve the right to terminate service to any customer for any reason not prohibited by law.

Any deliberate attempt to cause damage to K-Host or any other Internet servers will result in immediate account deactivation without prior notice. No refund is given in this case.

We will not host Web sites which contain adult material on our shared web hosting servers.

In the event you exceed the transfer limit allowed on your hosting plan, you will be charged over usage fees. We do not cap your data transfer at your hosting account limit. You can monitor your monthly transfer through your control panel Dashboard.


Disk Space

K-Host allows generous disk quota's for storing your files, graphics, pictures, etc. We do have some limits on our disk space that impact server performance:



For our web hosting Customers backups are made daily off server. A daily, weekly and monthly archive is kept for server restoration purposes. We do offer recovery service of files and directories for a per incident fee. No guarantees are made of any kind, either expressed or implied, as to the integrity of these backups. It is the clients' responsibility to maintain local copies of their Web content and information. There are backup tools provided in the customers control panels to assist them with backing up their data.
