Below are commonly asked questions regarding acceptable content for websites hosted with HostNine. For more information, we recommend reviewing the Acceptable Use Policy under our Terms of Service.
Do you allow sites to advertise for money?
Yes, we allow sites to have commercial advertisements.
Can I use advertisement banners?
Static HTML banners are acceptable, but script-based banners are not allowed. These cause a high processor load and can crash the server, especially if the banner loads on many different pages.
Do you allow adult sites?
Yes, we allow adult sites. They must be legal in the United States of America and the state of Texas.

More details regarding unacceptable material can be found in our Acceptable Use Policy.
Shared and Reseller Accounts
The following are not acceptable on HostNine shared servers:
Storing files - Our shared servers are not for storing or archiving files, videos, mp3s or any other data. While we try to be flexible, use of a shared hosting account as a backup/storage device is not permissible.
Media streaming - We support HTTP streaming on shared servers; however, live streaming is not supported. (This is because an HTTP stream has a defined beginning and end. Live streaming joins in the middle of a broadcast.)
