Mystic Dreams Enterprises' customers are privileged to be offered unlimited traffic for their web sites. The intention of Mystic Dreams Enterprises is to provide a large space to serve web documents, not an off site storage area for electronic files. All (90%) of your web pages (html) must be 'linked' with files (.GIF, .JPEG, etc.) stored on Mystic Dreams Enterprises' server. Web sites that are found to contain either/or no html documents, a large number of unlinked files are subject to warning, suspension or cancellation at the discretion of Mystic Dreams Enterprises management. Any customer who violates Mystic Dreams Enterprises' Policies in abusing either space/site transfer will be notified and given 2 days to remedy the problem. If the problem is not resolved within the allotted period, the client will be billed for the overages.
To maintain the integrity of our shared hosting service the following limitations apply:
Traffic will go unmonitored until you reach 5 GB per month or as agreed when you signed up for services. Thereafter, normal data transfer cost of $10.00/1GB/month will be billed to your account. If you want to pre-pay for bandwidth overages you must contact Mystic Dreams Enterprises for further instructions.
You will have 7 days to pay for your overages. If you do not pay for your overages your site will be disabled within 7 days of your first notice. Failure to pay in no way relieves the user's obligations to make full payment.
Mystic Dreams Enterprises will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision.

We do not allow clients to install their own chat rooms within a shared hosting account, without approving it with the Mystic Dreams Enterprises Support Team. Most chat rooms tend to be large system hogs and we cannot allow it as an account option. However, we do provide a choice of Java chat rooms for a small extra charge that will more than fill your needs and run without hindering the performance of the machine for others. Note: Parachat chat rooms do not apply to this rule. They are perfectly fine to install.
We do not allow clients to send more than 100 pieces of e-mail per day from a shared hosting account. If you do send more than 100 pieces of e-mail per day, your account will be placed on hold for Network Abuse. If you are sending legitimate e-mails and they total more than 100 per day your account will be moved to a special server that is specifically designed to handle high volumes of e-mail. You will be charged $50.00/month in addition to your regular hosting charges if your account is moved to this server.
We may allow programs to run continually in the background. These are considered on a one-to-one basis and an extra charge will be incurred based on system resources used and operational maintenance needed.
We currently do not allow IRC IRC clients or IRC bots to be operated on any of our servers. In addition, IRC servers are not permitted on our network. Anyone found to be in violation of this policy risks immediate account termination.
