What If I Exceed My Storage or Transfer Limits?
If you exceed the storage or transfer limits on your account package by a minimal ammount, and it is a one time occurance you will most likely incur no additional charges. If your account repeatedly exceeds the limits, we will contact you to discuss upgrading your account or additional charges. Aprox $1.00 per gig of transfer.

I Need More Email Accounts
We base the number of email accounts on the ammount of storage each package has. If you require additional email accounts let us know. If you only require 1 or 2 more, there will be no additional charge. If you require more than that email account limits can be raised by increments of 5 for an additional $2.50 a month.

We do allow adult content on websites, but the content must be legal by US law. You must also protect images that are X rated with login protection, and age verification. R rated sites should include warnings or disclaimers. It is the customers responsibility to ensure that content presented on thier website is accurate and does not violate copyright laws.

Spam (Blacklisting, Security Vulnerability)
Customers are allowed to run mailing lists on thier websites, we even offer a mailing list platform for customers to use, however excessive use of these systems resulting in a website domain or hosting IP being blacklisted due to multiple individuals reporting the emails as spam can result in loss of email services. If a website has been exploited due to insecure code and email services have been used to send spam Custom Computer Designs will make an attenpt to get the IP address or domain removed from blacklists so that email functionality resumes but cannot guarantee that the customers domain will be removed from all blacklists across the internet.
