Unlimited Use Policy
High bandwidth usage: TAGhosting offers an unlimited use policy by maintaining very large ratios of bandwidth per customer. In rare cases, TAGhosting may find a customer to be using server resources to such an extent that he or she may jeopardize service performance and resources for other customers. In such instances, at TAGhosting' discretion, TAGhosting reserves the right to impose the High Resource User Policy for the consideration of all customers.
High Resource User Policy
Resources are defined as bandwidth, processor utilization or disk space.
TAGhosting may implement the following policy to its sole discretion:
When the resources utilised by a customer in using a service are abnormally high, TAGhosting reserves the right to suspend that service immediately. This policy is only implemented in extreme circumstances and is intended to prevent the misuse of our services. Customers may be offered an option whereby TAGhosting continues supplying the service under a reduced usage criteria specified by TAGhosting. Failure to comply with such measures may result in your service being terminated.
Uploads via scripting languages
We limit uploads made via scripting languages - Uploads made using PHP are limited to 20MB per file. We will not be held responsible for any file uploaded which could damage your website or other. We strongly suggest that you password protect your upload folder and do not allow public uploads without correct file checking.
All accounts are set up on a prepay basis. Although TAGhosting reserves the right to change prices of accounts or services at any time, all pricing is guaranteed for the period of prepayment. Payment is due every 30 or 365 days, from the date the account was established. Customers will automatically be charged again at the end of their prepay period unless confirmation of the wish to close has already been received.
In situations where the card number on file is declined TAGhosting will immediately suspend the facility to purchase services on-line until the outstanding charge is processed successfully. In addition, TAGhosting reserves the right to suspend other services until the outstanding debt is cleared. Any non-payment of a recurring invoice may be subject to a £20 administration charge.

TAGhosting cannot guarantee that a service will be provided until after any received cheques have been cleared.
30 day trial
For customers opening their first account the initial 30 days are available on a trial basis (please see packages with this facility).

Customers will not be entitled to this benefit if they have previously had an account with TAGhosting unless the period of absence has been greater than one year.

30 day money back guarantee
All new accounts have a subjective 30 day money guarantee which must follow the following procedure. First complaint / incident must be recorded through our customer
support team. If the complaint / incident can not be resolved or a formal resolution made then an offer of a 30 day money back guarantee will be made.

will be a breach in contract and the offer will be null and void.
