Unlimited Usage Policy
Servikus offers some of its hosting packages with an "Unlimited" amount of resources for specific options (disk drive space, bandwidth, domains per account, and others listed in the features page). This means that we will not set a specific cap for these resources, and the client will be able to use these resources as needed. However, Servikus does use a fair usage policy that applies to all accounts. Servikus's Fair Usage Policy implies that if the client uses the shared server's resources to the extent where he is negatively affecting other users hosted on the same server, the resources may be capped or, in some cases. Still, not necessarily, the respectable account may be suspended before the client upgrades his performance to a package more suitable for his needs or fixes the issues. Hence, his account's resource usage stops to affect other users on the same shared server negatively.
Servikus's Fair Usage Policy, among other resources, covers RAM usage, number of processes, and CPU usage. If a client violates any of the terms covered by Servikus's Fair Usage Policy, Servikus reserves the right to suspend a respectable account. Suppose any of the accounts hosted on our servers exceeds the number of processes, RAM usage, or CPU resource usage, implied by our Fair Usage Policy. In that case, Servikus reserves the right to suspend a respectable account.
By the term "Unlimited Space," Servikus means that it will not set a cap on the number of files the user may host on his account. However, the space on the hosting account cannot be used for: Backup storage, Online storage, File sharing services, Movie storage, Photo storage, Software storage, Copyrighted content storage, Illegal, Abusive, or Offending file storage, Document Archives, or any other type of Archive, File Backups (except a single cPanel backup generated from your cPanel), log files, etc. Servikus reserves the right to remove such files from the user account with or without notice to the client. Servikus reserves the right to remove any single files larger than 1GB from the user account regardless of the file's content, with or without notice to the client. Servikus also reserves the right to suspend a user account if the account exceeds the maximum number of files set for that account if the client decides not to upgrade to an appropriate package or dedicated server. Servikus will reserve the right to suspend a user account if it extends more than 1GB of total MySQL disk usage.

Servikus also reserves the right to suspend a user's account if it uses more than 10 Mbps at any particular time without warning.
Resource Usage Policy
Servikus is using various methods to ensure each account gets a fair share of resources on a shared hosting server. Every package gets its own set of resources that fits the most for that package. We are limiting the amount of CPU, RAM, number of running processes, and entry processes. Usually, limits will not be reached, unless you are running some poorly coded script, or your site has massive traffic. Your website will show you a 508 error if some limits are reached. You can always check your limits inside your cPanel account. You can always upgrade your package at any time.
Servikus reserve the right to suspend the account at any time and without notice if that account is abusing these resources to protect other users on the server.
Servikus will not be responsible for any damage caused by resource limitation or account suspension.
Servikus is using various methods to ensure that each and every account hosted at our shared hosting servers gets a fair share of resource per hosting plan that is currently used. Suppose the client uses the shared server's resources to the extent where he is negatively affecting other users hosted on the same server. In that case, we may be forced to limit the number of running processes, CPU use, number of entry processes, or RAM use of the respective account. Also, Servikus reserves the right to suspend individual accounts. Resource usage limits may be reached if you use some very poorly coded script or if your account is better suited for a more advanced hosting plan or dedicated server. Under normal circumstances, no limits will be reached, and we will not put a cap or limit on any of the resources. Servikus will not be held liable for any damage caused by resource limitation or account suspension.
