Total Hosting’s Anti-Spam Policy

Total Hosting ("Total Hosting")
maintains a zero tolerance policy for use of its network or services in any
manner associated with the transmission, distribution or delivery of any bulk
e-mail, including unsolicited bulk or unsolicited commercial e-mail, or the
sending, assisting, or commissioning the transmission of commercial e-mail that
does not comply with the U.S. CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 ("SPAM").

It is your obligation to ensure that
e-mail sent by you, or on your behalf, does not violate this law. We assume
SPAM complaints are valid unless we are provided with credible information to

    its Users or subscribers, including but not limited to subscriber e-mail
    addresses, which are Total Hosting’s confidential and proprietary
    information. Use of our network or services is also subject to our User
    Agreement, AUP and other Terms of Service.


  1. Total Hosting does not permit or authorize any attempt
    to use its network or services in a manner that could damage, disable,

    terminate and/or cancel any offending Web site or account sending SPAM.


  1. Users may be asked to produce records that verify that
    explicit affirmative permission was obtained from a recipient before a
    mailing was sent. Total Hosting may consider the lack of such proof of
    explicit affirmative permission of a questionable mailing.


  1. Users are prohibited from maintaining open mail relays
    on their servers. Ignorance of the presence or operation of an open mail
    relay is not and will not be considered an acceptable excuse for its (the
    open mail relay) operation.

    sites that have been included in SPAM, including, but not limited to
    hosting Web site(s), or providing DNS services or Web site redirect

    law, even if that third-party does not use Total Hosting systems, networks

    source – which contains any reference to a Web site hosted by us or
    contains any reference or link to a network or system of Total Hosting is

    use is being made of our network, or any product or service, it may,

    mail server or IP address. Total Hosting may immediately suspend,

    determines, in its sole discretion, is transmitting or is otherwise
    connected with any e-mail that violates this policy.


  1. Total Hosting reserves the right to suspend, terminate

    each piece of SPAM sent.


  1. To report an incidence of SPAM, please send an e-mail
    to us


  1. Nothing in this policy is intended to grant any right
    to transmit or send e-mail to, or through, our network or services. Failure

    states, and unauthorized use of our network will lead to use of equipment
    in such states. Unauthorized use of our network in connection with the

This is also true for sites that promote any illegal activity or content that may be damaging to our servers or any other server on the internet. Links to such materials are also prohibited.

In addition any site selling or promoting Bulk email services is not allowed.

Total Hosting reserves the right to cancel service of any account that produces a load on the servers that degrades performance for other users. This may be due to the use of large amounts of storage space or transfer.

Each account comes with its own cgi-bin. You are free to use any CGI scripts you wish, however we reserve the right to disable any CGI script that effects normal server operation without prior warning.

Chat Rooms
We do not allow clients to install their own chat rooms. These tend to be large system hogs and we cannot allow it as an account option.

Looking for a free (and easy) way to build graphics and icons for your website? Take a look at what we found.

We have found a great, free icon editor that we think you will love. Of course, we use Photoshop, Fireworks, Illustrator and other professional graphics tools here at Total Hosting. But since we know many of you can’t or just don’t want to spend the money on a tool that you will only use sparingly, we thought it would be nice to point you to something free.


Without further ado:

We are going to spend some time with this program and see what we can do. We invite you to do the same. If you have any success stories, please share them.

Click here for a full list of scripts supported by our control panel.{/slide} {slide=Linux CENTOS} Linux (often pronounced LIH-nuhks with a short “i”) is a UNIX-like operating system that was designed to provide personal computer users a free or very low-cost operating system comparable to traditional and usually more expensive UNIX systems. Linux has a reputation as a very efficient and fast-performing system. Linux’s kernel (the central part of the operating system) was developed by Linus Torvalds at the University of Helsinki in Finland. To complete the operating system, Torvalds and other team members made use of system components developed by members of the Free Software Foundation for the GNU project.

    Linux is a remarkably complete operating system, including a graphical user interface, an X Window System, TCP/IP, the Emacs editor, and other components usually found in a comprehensive UNIX system. Although copyrights are held by various creators of Linux’s components, Linux is distributed using the Free Software Foundation’s copyleft stipulations that mean any modified version that is redistributed must in turn be freely available.

    Unlike Windows and other proprietary systems, Linux is publicly open and extendible by contributors. Because it conforms to the Portable Operating System Interface standard user and programming interfaces, developers can write programs that can be ported to other operating systems. Linux comes in versions for all the major microprocessor platforms including the Intel, PowerPC, Sparc, and Alpha platforms. It’s also available on IBM’s S/390. Linux is distributed commercially by a number of companies. A magazine, Linux Journal, is published as well as a number of books and pocket references.

    Linux is sometimes suggested as a possible publicly-developed alternative to the desktop predominance of Microsoft Windows. Although Linux is popular among users already familiar with UNIX, it remains far behind Windows in numbers of users. {/slide} {slide=Apache Web Server} Every web site in the world requires a web server to enable its information to be accessed. A web server works behind the scenes to transport web pages from across the world to your computer, forming a critical part of the Internet.

    When you are using the web, your browser requests the text and images that your computer then displays. These requests are sent over the Internet to remote computers. The web server software that runs on these computers takes the request from the browser, and sends back the files and data that make up that page.

    Apache has been the most popular web server on the Internet since April of 1996. The August 2002 Netcraft Web Server Survey found that 63% of the web sites on the Internet are using Apache, thus making it more widely used than all other web servers combined.

    Our servers are Unix based servers.{/slide} {slide=CPanel Web-Based Control Panel} Total Hosting offers you a graphical web-based system to administer your hosting account. We offer two levels of control. One for the administrator and one for the user. The admin can set up users, add/edit/delete files and view your statistics for your website 24/7.{/slide} {slide=Password Protect Directories} You have the ability to password protect any directories that you choose to limit access to only authorized users.{/slide} {slide=Parked Domains 5 Free, $10 for each additional} Parked domains are also known as domain “aliases” If your main domain is, you can also have or go to the exact same spot when someone types it into their browser. This is a great way to increase brand recognition to your website. {/slide} {slide=IP Address available, $1.25 per month} Each web hosting account is set-up by default as a Name-Based Account. This means that the hosting account uses the root IP address for the server which allows the web account to be found while sharing a single IP address with other accounts.

    You can run SSL, SSH, eCommerce and any other service you can think of using a name-based account. Name-based accounts can not have their own SSL certificate (you can use our shared certificate) or more than one SSH log in.
