CGI Scripts Policy
Posted by Innerplanet Sales on 12 September 2003 08:52 AM
Our servers are not to be used as your testing platforms. Customer accounts are on high end, live server responsible for maintaining many accounts. Your server space is being provided to display your finished product to the web - NOT for application or script testing. If you are uploading a script to our server, you acknowledge that you have already tested your script elsewhere and that you know how to install the script. Any script that the server administrator deems to be potentially threatening to the overall performance of our web server will be terminated immediately and your account access could be subject to suspension or terminated without refund of any pre-paid fees. Termination includes the purging of all customer files.

Any time spent by Innerplanet to kill a script and/or to lock an account will be billed to the account at a rate of $65.00 per hour (one hour minimum charge). Malicious scripts are subject to immediate account cancellation.
Please note the following cgi script usage policies:

The script must use low system resources. Scripts that consume a large amount of server memory or CPU power will be subject to account review, possible mandatory upgrade to dedicated server and/or additional fee.

Scripts may not interact with any server configuration or hardware. Users running scripts that interact with any server configuration or any hardware will be subject to account review, possible mandatory upgrade to dedicated server, and/or additional fee.
 
The script can be used and referenced from any site on the Net (i.e. free counters, etc.); however, scripts must stay within the allowable usage of our system resources. Users using more resources than a single user account is entitled to use will be subject to account review, possible mandatory upgrade to dedicated server, and/or additional fee.

The script must be executed in a timely fashion.

Scripts must be secure. Unnecessarily setting permissions (chmod) of scripts to 777 is a policy violation. Placing scripts in a publicly viewable directory (one without an index.html files) is a policy violation and is subject to removal by system administrator.

Any accounts with scripts found in violation of any Innerplanet policy are subject to future scrutiny of all cgi by our system administrator. If a script is found to be harmful to the system, it will be killed immediately and the account locked until the account owners have been contacted. Any time spent by Innerplanet to kill a script and/or to lock an account will be billed to the account at a rate of $65.00 per hour (one hour minimum).

Malicious scripts are subject to immediate account cancellation.
Customer is responsable for keeping his/her scripts up to date.
