A fair use policy helps structure what is and is not acceptable use of my services. The purpose of a fair use policy is to allow all clients who are paying for my services to benefit equally of it’s performance and uptime rather than being penalized with poor performance because of unfair actors. By way of example and not limitation, the following are considered by myself to be outside of an ordinary range of use thereby consuming excessive resources:

  • Commonly sending emails with large attachments (i.e. 20+ MB).
  • Sending and receiving more than 200 emails in a 24 hour period.
  • Consuming more than 5 GB of disk space per mailbox, or a combined  total of more than 20 GB across all mailboxes in your account – whichever comes first. A fee may be added for excessive disk use to allow for services to continue.
  • A website exceeding more than 1000 hits per hour for an extended time (6+ hours).
  • Under no circumstances may any service be used for illegal activities.
  • Services are considered to be “virtually unlimited” within the realms of the Fair Use Policy.
    • If there is an extreme need for resources which may not be available quickly without impact, then I will work with you on a solution to get the resources your usage requires. Extra resources may come at an additional cost to you.
  • Email Hosting:
    • Email services may not be used to send spam or illegal content. Doing so may result in termination of services without warning.
  • Web Hosting:
    • Web services may not be used to host or interact with illegal content. Doing so may result in termination of services without warning.
  • Domains:
    • A domain is included only when it’s a standard top-level domain such as a .ca, .com, .org, and others. Specialty domains will need to be quoted in advance due to extra costs.

The goal: 99.9%  uptime in a calendar year.

This allows a total unplanned downtime of 8 hours, 45 minutes, and 56 seconds over the course of a year, per https://uptime.is/99.9.

In the interest of transparency and to improve the support experience for my clients, I have a third-party provider monitoring my services. A live status page showing any outages, performance issues, maintenance, etc. is hosted at https://d19.instatus.com/.

Please understand that while I aim to provide a 99.9% uptime, it is only considered to be downtime (or an “outage”) if it is unscheduled downtime. This means any scheduled maintenance windows (such as is needed to reboot the server for security updates), will not add impact the uptime nor the downtime metrics. All scheduled maintenance windows will be as short as possible (and announced in advance) and will generally take place during off-peak hours after 9 PM and before 7 AM.

  • I am the sole employee. While this is most often a benefit to my clients as I can offer personalized and speedy service, this can have a small negative effect while I am on vacation or just much busier than usual – these situations may cause delayed service delivery. Every effort will be made to provide as much notice as possible before any such event to allow for proper planning by your business due to my unavailability.
