Acceptable Use Policy: (For All Customers)

This policy applies to all Haar Cloud Ltd customers and is not product specific. When you sign up for any of our services, you agree to the following:

Your Responsibility

You are required to use our network responsibly and with respect for our other clients. We reserve the right to suspend and/or cancel your service if you use our network in such a way that adversely affects other customers.

While we may monitor services electronically to determine that systems are operating correctly, as a general practice, we do not monitor your communications or activities to determine if they are in compliance with the policy.

However, when we are notified of a violation of this policy, we will take action to stop or correct the violation, including, but not limited to, denying access to our services and equipment. In addition, we may take action against you or one of your clients depending on the type of violation.

If you resell and offer Internet services, you will cooperate with us in any corrective or preventive action deemed necessary. Failure to cooperate is a violation of this policy and we reserve the right to take action which may also affect your other customers or web sites.

Non-Haar Products

Any mention of non-Haar products by us, our employees or any third party entity related to us is for information purposes only and does not constitute an endorsement or recommendation. Haar disclaims any and all liabilities for any representation or warranty made by the vendors of such non-Haar products or services.

Third Party Licenses

We make a reasonable effort to provide you with technologies, developments, and innovations (collectively ‘Technologies’), part of which may be licensed, or co-branded, from or by third party entities. However, Haar makes NO warranty of any kind, either express or implied, regarding the quality, accuracy, reliability, validity, or continued existence of any or all aspects of such Technologies. Moreover, we specifically disclaims all warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose for such Technologies. Furthermore, no customer will hold us liable in any way for the revocation of any license, which has been licensed to Haar. The use of the Technologies obtained from or through us, or any other referred third party, whether directly or indirectly, is at the sole risk of you the customer.

Unlimited Policy

Our Unlimited plans are designed to make the management of websites simpler, without worry of a typical site going over a disk space limit. They are not designed as a file storage service or a place to keep backups, doing so will result in account suspension or termination. Examples of prohibited uses are:

  • File Upload, Sharing, Backup, Distribution and Mirroring websites
  • Sharing your account resources with others
  • Image or File Dump Sites
  • Storing copyrighted materials of which you are not the owner
  • Storing media or content that is not related to the active website
  • All accounts must be kept within the allocated inode limits. Failure to do so may result in account suspension.

Acceptable Use Policy: Website Hosting

All Website Hosting packages are in a shared hosting environment, meaning multiple customers shared servers and services. This is standard for all Website Hosting providers.

Fair Usage

Website Hosting plans that come with unlimited bandwidth may be asked to upgrade to a Cloud Plan if your website is deemed to have too much traffic which causes slow speeds for other users. This will likely only affect websites causing performance issues to our servers.

Accepting Payments on your Website

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is an information security standard for organisations that handle cardholder information for debit, credit or other payment cards. Our Wordpress/General Hosting service does not comply with PCI DSS due to the nature of a shared hosting environment (many users and websites sharing resources). For PCI DSS we recommend the WooCommerce plans.

You are not permitted to store and manage card details on Wordpress/General Hosting. Any website found storing card details will be suspended.

Please note that we recommend using third-party payment processing gateways (for example paypal, worldpay or skrill) as payments are handled and stored by each third-party merchant respectively.

Inactive Accounts

Accounts in a suspended status for longer than 60 days will be deemed inactive and will be terminated automatically.

Accounts that do not resolve to our servers (either through DNS, A-Records, MX records or CloudFlare) will be seen as a file storage account and the following timeline will apply:

  • Notification sent at 14 days inactive
  • Account suspended at 30 days inactive
  • Account terminated at 60 days inactive

Server Resources

Any website that is deemed to be using a high amount of server resources (such as, but not limited to, CPU time, memory usage, and network resources) will be given the option to either pay for additional resources (depending on which resource is required), reduce the resources used to an acceptable level or upgrade to a Virtual Private Server. We will be the sole arbiter of what is considered to be a high server usage level. Any Website Hosting, Reseller Hosting (and individual clients) account deemed to be adversely affecting server performance or network integrity will be suspended without prior notice.

CGI Scripts

Any scripts that pose a potential security risk or are deemed to be adversely affecting server performance or network integrity will be shut down or will be automatically removed without prior notice. We also do not permit CGI script sharing with web sites not hosted by us.

Chat Rooms

We do not allow Chat Rooms to be installed on Website Hosting and Reseller Hosting platforms as they tend to require significant system resources which could have an adverse affect on other customers.


We do not allow IRC or IRC bots to be operated on Web Hosting and Reseller Hosting accounts.

Background Running Jobs and Cron Jobs

We may allow ad-hoc programs to run in the background. These programs will be considered on an individual basis and acceptance is not guaranteed. However, most of our control panels allow scheduled tasks or cron jobs to be created.

Server Time zone

All our servers' time zones are set to UK GMT.


We reserve the right to suspend or remove any databases that cause issues and downtime on any of our servers. Large and busy databases that require a lot of user connections should be hosted on a dedicated or VPS machine. Any database over 2GB in size would be considered as over usage and not suitable for shared hosting.

If your web site is not closing database connections and your web site causes sleeping connections eventually causing high usage to our database server, then your database will be suspended. A £25.00 administration fee may apply to unsuspend any database from our server, however this is only charged if your database causes service outage to other clients.

Disk Usage

Disk usage included with Website Hosting and Reseller Hosting plans includes disk space for databases and email.

Shared hosting accounts including reseller hosting that go over disk space usage will be billed at the end of each month at £2.00 per 1GB disk space used.

Viruses Uploaded to Websites

If your website contains a virus or a virus has been uploaded by the website owner or if the website is hacked in any way, our system will automatically attempt to clean the virus, if this does not happen our system will then attempt to delete the virus. If the virus can not be deleted and several viruses are uploaded your domain name will be suspended from our hosting. You may be charged an administration fee of £10.00 to have the domain name re-enabled.

Backup of Data

We provide 100% backups of all Website Hosting and Reseller Hosting websites, databases & email. We always recommend you regularly make your own backups and always make a backup before you upgrade or change your website, meaning you can then recover to a specific point in time from your own backups. Restores from our nightly backups can be made either directly through your control panel or via a support request. Please note that backups from our vault are stored for up to 10 days only.

We reserve the right to remove any backups you create and store locally.

Service Level Agreement

If your service drops below 100% uptime in any given month you will be credited 10x the amount of downtime to your account. This must be claimed within 7 days of our monitoring dropping below this level.

Any planned maintenance work is exempt from this guarantee and will be ignored. Legacy accounts with sub-reseller enabled have no SLA.

Uptime level is calculated by our status page and monitors only.

Downtime occurring due to natural disasters or DDoS attacks against the network do not count towards the SLA calculations.


Sending unsolicited bulk and/or commercial messages over the Internet (known as “spamming”) is prohibited, regardless of whether or not it overloads a server or disrupts service to our customers.

The term “spamming” also includes, but is not limited to, maintaining an open SMTP policy, engaging in spamming using the service of another ISP or IPP and referencing in the spam a web site hosted by us, and selling or distributing software (on a web site residing on one of our servers) that facilitates spamming.

Violators may be immediately suspended. We reserve the right to determine, at our sole and absolute discretion, what constitutes a violation of this provision.

Mass Mailing

Mass mailing / mailing lists are not allowed on our Hosting service.

Anyone who sends mass mail and is found to cause issues to our mail service or IP reputation will have the domain name suspended.

Disk Space

On our shared hosting, email accounts can not exceed 2GB in size, this is enforced to prevent problems caused by backing up large mailboxes.

Acceptable Use Policy: Cloud

Cloud Management

All Cloud packages should be professionally managed by the end user unless a management addon has been purchased and must be kept free from viruses.

Cloud customers who have not purchased managed services can purchase support tickets. Each ticket is £30.00 for 30 minutes support during UK Office hours excluding public bank holidays. Emergency technical support tickets outside of these hours cost £50 per 30 minutes.

Bandwidth Over Usage

Each month your bandwidth will reset on your billing date, if you go over your bandwidth allowance, an invoice will be generated. Bandwidth invoices will be charged anytime within 3-10 days after the invoice was generated.

IP Addresses

Each Server is initially assigned a range of IP addresses. Additional IP addresses can be purchased and are charged per IP address. A maximum of 5 IP addresses are allowed.

You are only permitted to add IP addresses that have been approved by Haar. Adding an IP address to your server that we have not allocated will result in your server being shut-down. Your server will not be re-enabled until you have provided the reason why the unauthorised IP has been added to your server. If you have several servers, you must contact us before moving IPs between servers

Dedicated Server Operating System Reload

Dedicated server customers requiring a OS Reload on a dedicated server can request one by submitting a ticket.

Service Level Agreement (Network)

If your service drops below 100% network uptime in any given month you will be credited 10x the amount of downtime to your account. This must be claimed within 7 days of our monitoring dropping below this level.

Any planned maintenance work is exempt from this guarantee and will be ignored.

Uptime level is calculated by our status page and monitors only.

When your domain name is due to be renewed we will send you multiple reminders from 60 days before its expiry date. 30 Days before the domain expires we will invoice you for the domain renewal, once this is paid the domain name will instantly be renewed. Invoices that are not paid after 14 days will automatically be cancelled and the domain name will expire.
