Adult, Pornographic Sites are Not Allowed
Although we plan to allow adult content in the future, at the current time it is not allowed on our servers. When we start allowing adult content, we will edit these Terms of Service.
Long Running Processes, Concurrent Multiple Processes, Resource Intensive Processes
We monitor all processes running on our servers. We don't allow long running processes on our shared servers. Generally processes running up to 60 seconds at a time, which run a few times day will be permitted, this is not a hard limit rule and there is some flexibility here. Processes which consume excessive resources, eg. greater then 30% of the cpu and run over 90 seconds will not be allowed on our shared servers. Most sites, forums, blogs will run fine within these limits.
Data Storage on Shared Plans
The data storage allocated to your account is for the purpose of hosting the domains in your account. You are allowed to use 5GB of your allocated disk space for your personal use and in addition you are allowed to keep backups of your website(s) and database(s). Do not store multiple backups of backups in your account.

We do not allow the following content on our servers:
Any site violating US Federal Law, NY State Law or any Law which we are bound to comply with.

Gaming services, ie Minecraft, Battlefield 3 are allowed on our vps products.
This list is not exhaustive, but a sample of what content is generally prohibited in a shared hosting environment. HostRush staff will have the final say as to what content will be permitted on our severs and the sole remedy will be the prorated refund of services to be calculated from the first day of the subsequent month.
