Service Interruptions

Any activity which causes service interruptions to either ACSB’s network/servers or any outside network. This includes, but is not limited to, the execution of Denial of Service attacks or other maliciously configured software.

Anonymous Proxies

Anonymous proxies are easily abused and often cause a negative impact on both the servers and the network they are connected to. As such, they’re prohibited on ACSB’s network and servers.


Customer agrees to not have any content on their site that advocates, sells or in any way makes available tools or methods to send unsolicited e-mail or usenet postings (spam), or to use ACSB Web Hosting’s Servers for relaying unsolicited e-mail or usenet postings, or to use unsolicited e-mail or usenet postings to advertise for their site hosted at ACSB. Any complaint we receive about a violation of this or the preceding two points will be taken very seriously and will result in immediate account cancellation without a refund. More details about our anti-spam policy can be found at

Personal Information Harvesting

Collecting or using email addresses, screen names or other personal identifiers without the consent of the person identified (including, without limitation, phishing, Internet scamming, password robbery, spidering, and harvesting).


You agree that if the ACSB IP numbers assigned to your account are listed on an abuse database or blacklist like Spamhaus, you will be in violation of this AUP, and ACSB may take reasonable action to protect its IP numbers, including suspension and/or termination of your service, regardless of whether the IP numbers were listed as a result of your actions.

Customer agrees to not engage in activities pertaining to Black Hat SEO, Spamdexing, and so-called “Scraper sites.” These can all have a severely detrimental effect on server performance and are not permitted.

Any conduct that is likely to result in retaliation against ACSB’s network or website, or ACSB’s employees, officers or other agents, including engaging in behavior that results in any server being the target of a denial of service attack (DoS).

Backup and Data Loss

With the exception of ACSB Dedicated Server products, the customer agrees to make use of ACSB Web Hosting servers primarily for the purpose of hosting a website, and associated email functions. Data uploaded must be primarily for this purpose. ACSB Web Hosting servers are not intended as a data backup or archiving service. ACSB Web Hosting reserves the right to negotiate additional charges with the Customer and/or the discontinuation of the backups/archives at their discretion. If you exceed your allocated transfer bandwidth for a month, you will be billed at the rate of follow price table  per additional 10GB.
Your use of this service is at your sole risk. Our backup service is provided to you as a courtesy. ACSB is not responsible for files and/or data residing on your account. You agree to take full responsibility for files and data transferred . Backups will not be provided for accounts that have been suspended or terminated.

IRC Bots/Bouncers

All IRC bots and “bouncers” (bnc, etc) are forbidden.

Proxy Software

All proxy software, anonymous or otherwise, is forbidden on ACSB Shared Hosting services.

Network Daemons

Any process that opens a network socket to accept connections from external networks is forbidden. Processes are allowed to bind to the local host only, but are held to the limitations placed on all other processes.

Uptime Guarantee

Shared Hosting Accounts
If your shared hosting account downtime is not within the 99.9% uptime, you may request for credit on your account based on our Service Level Agreement. Uptime of the server is defined as the reported hardware and network availability, not uptime from individual service which is independent of the actual uptime of the server. Third party monitoring services reports may not be used for justification due to unreliable monitor’s network capacity/transit availability. To requests credit, please open a support ticket to report your claim with justification based on our term and condition. Credit approval is at the discretion of ACSB.

Reseller & VPS Accounts
All Reseller and VPS accounts are ensured with a 99.9% monthly Guarantee. The first forty-five (45) minutes, i.e. 0.1%, of Service unavailability per month are not eligible. If the Service has been up for less than 99.9% we’ll offer a 1-day charges for service and below 98% will be 2-day charges for service. The maximum amount of Credit can be claimed shall not exceed 50% of the total Monthly Fee for the Service provided. Downtime must be confirmed by a staff member of our Support Team. Credit cover only the hosting fees. All other fees such as setup fees,addons fees, upgrade fees, managed services fees and other miscellaneous fees (e.g. managed firewall service, managed monitoring service) are not included.

Example of Calculation

   Downtime in month  50 hours
   Today Days in a Month  30
   Uptime %   100% – (50 / (30 x 24)) = 100% – 6.94% = 93.06%
   Hosting Fee (Yearly)   RM 300.00 /Year
   Hosting Fee (Daily)   300.00/365 = RM 0.822
   Credit for Client   RM 0.822 x 2 day = RM 4.932

To claim a Service cycle prolongation You need to contact Us by submitting a ticket within the first 3 calendar days after the downtime took place.

Server Maintenance Policy

1. Purpose This is ACSB Web Hosting’s Server Maintenance Policy.  This Server Maintenance Policy discusses the ways in which we maintain our technology to improve and administer the Services (as defined in the Terms of Service) and how you will be impacted by those actions.  Capitalized terms used but not defined in this policy have the meaning given to them in our Terms of Services, located at:

2. Availability We offer a 99.9% uptime commitment.  We will use our commercially reasonable efforts to provide the Services twenty-four (24) hours a day, seven days a week.  However, in order to operate in an efficient and secure manner, servers and network equipment require routine maintenance and upgrades (“Scheduled Downtime”) and you acknowledge that from time to time the Services may be unavailable for various reasons, including due to Scheduled Downtime or causes beyond our control. We will provide commercially reasonable advance notice to you for Scheduled Downtimes, and will use commercially reasonable efforts to minimize any other disruption, inaccessibility, or inoperability of our web servers but we are not responsible for the unavailability.

3. Maintenance Planned outages, including Scheduled Downtime, during these periods will not fall under our 99.9% uptime commitment. ACSB Hosting will make a reasonable effort to advise ACSB Hosting customers as far in advance as possible of any predicted extended outages.
  • Definitions.  Three types of maintenance downtimes are defined:
      a)  “Routine Maintenance” means a weekly short downtime necessary for quick updates and patches requiring reboots or restarts.
      b)  “Comprehensive Maintenance” means a longer monthly or otherwise scheduled downtime necessary for more significant enhancements.
      c)   “Emergency Maintenance” means a service affecting maintenance that is so severe it requires immediate attention.
      d)  “Scheduled Downtime” includes (a) and (b) above.
  • Intervals. The Scheduled Downtime intervals are as follows (the time zone is where the data centre or server is located):

      b) Comprehensive Maintenance Window (Monthly or Scheduled). Saturday evening of every month from 7:00 PM until 1:00 AM Monday morning or otherwise scheduled and communicated to affected customers via your contact email address.
      c) Emergency Maintenance. This type of maintenance is inherently not scheduled and is only used in extreme circumstances. We will make our best effort to notify customers should this become necessary.

      (i) Shared servers and accounts,
      (ii) Reseller servers and accounts,
