hosts will not be accepted as justification
for new IP addresses. What this means
to you is that you MUST use name-based

review IP address usage, and if we find
that clients are using IP addresses where
name-based hosting could be used, we will
revoke authorization to use those IP addresses
that could be used with name-based hosting.

other terms of the AUP or for any other
reason which The Company chooses. If inappropriate
activity is detected, all accounts of
the Customer in question will be deactivated
until an investigation is complete. Prior
notification to the Customer is not assured.
