Accounts, passwords, and other private information are provided for customer’s use only.

Denial of Service Attacks:
In no case may Asia Virtual Solutions GSA SER VPS services be used to conduct an attack on other networks or hosts, in any capacity. Doing so may result in permanent service suspension without refund. If DoS attacks are made against a customer’s services, our first priority is to take steps to mitigate the impact to other customers, which may include null routing the affected ip address(es), or otherwise suspending the service being attacked. In the case that an attack does not affect other customers or the Asia Virtual Solutions network, the service being attacked will normally not be taken offline or suspended. Customers who are the target of frequent or repeated denial of service attacks, if those attacks negatively impact the Asia Virtual Solutions network or it’s customers, may have the services affected by these attacks permanently suspended. Asia Virtual Solutions reserves the right to disallow the usage of internet services that are frequent targets of DoS attacks, such as IRC.
Sending of bulk unsolicited commercial email (spam), is not allowed and will not be tolerated. Customers using the Asia Virtual Solutions network may not send, or allow to be sent, via open relay or other means, unsolicited commercial email. Running a legitimate opt-in mailing list, or emailing existing customers, is of course, allowed. Although we may provide some opportunity to rectify spam problems that are not intentional on the part of the customer, ultimately, every customer is responsible for the activity that occurs via the services that they are paying for. Thus, customers who receive an occasional spam complaint but who do not appear to be knowingly sending spam, may be given notice to correct the issue, but repeated offenses may be grounds for service suspension. During any notice period given (if any), steps may be taken by Asia Virtual Solutions as necessary to stop spam from being sent by the customer’s services, including temporarily suspending service, firewalling certain traffic, or other appropriate means. Customers who are, as determined by Asia Virtual Solutions, knowingly sending spam may have their service permanently suspended without refund. Operating websites or services on the Asia Virtual Solutions network, that are being or have been advertised in spam, are also not allowed, and are subject to the same policies as applied to services used to send spam. If customer’s improper actions or inaction’s are the cause of Asia Virtual Solutions ip space being listed in any spam blacklist or database, that customer may be permanently suspended without refund, at the sole discretion of Asia Virtual Solutions.
Running websites that attempt to steal a user’s login information or other personal data (phishing sites) is strictly prohibited. Users who unknowingly host these sites must take them down immediately, and their service may be temporarily suspended until action is taken to rectify the situation. Users who repeatedly host phishing sites, risk having their service permanently suspended. Users who, as determined by Asia Virtual Solutions, intentionally host phishing sites using Asia Virtual Solutions services may have their service permanently suspended without refund, at our sole discretion.
Asia Virtual Solutions services may only be used for legally permissible purposes under applicable law. Violations of this rule may lead to temporary or permanent suspension of service, with or without refund, and / or notification of appropriate law enforcement, at Asia Virtual Solutions sole discretion. Uses that are not allowed include, but are not limited to:
Illegally defaming or slandering another person or group
Violating applicable copyright law
Distributing child pornography
Transmitting threatening messages
Violating applicable trademark or patent law
Using the service to commit denial of service attacks
Attempting to hack into or otherwise attempt to disrupt any network or system not belonging to you
Committing any action which incurs legal liability for Asia Virtual Solutions
Acting in any other way not consistent with applicable law
The content and type of usage of the service is not regularly monitored for violation of these terms or of applicable law. In the course of performing other duties related to operating Asia Virtual Solutions, we may become aware of activities that are in violation of this agreement or applicable law. Upon noticing or being informed of these violations, we may take appropriate action, which, depending on the nature of the infraction, may include a warning, temporary or permanent service suspension, or, in cases of exploitation of children or other serious crimes, notification to the proper authorities. Even if we become aware of a specific violation, this does not obligate us to regularly monitor for future violations by the same customer or any other customer, as we do not have the resources nor the authority to regularly monitor customers in this way. We may, however, monitor the quantity of resources used, such as bandwidth, ram, cpu time, disk space, disk i/o and other statistical information, to ensure proper billing, capacity planning, and service reliability.
All legal adult content is allowed, as per applicable law.
Legal usage of bittorrent is allowed, including running trackers, clients, or websites for non-copyright-infringing material. Laws regarding copyright infringement will apply, according to applicable US law. Frequent or unresolved DMCA complaints regarding bittorrent usage may be grounds for service suspension. Because of resources limitations. Torrents are allowed only on Windows VPS, KVM Storage VPS and Dedicated Servers.
Because IRC usage attracts a disproportional amount of denial of service attacks, Asia Virtual Solutions does not allow usage of IRC clients, servers, bots, or other IRC technology. Customers who are found to be running IRC servers, clients, or bots, may have their service suspended, temporarily or permanently, at the discretion of Asia Virtual Solutions. Customers who knowingly run IRC servers, clients, or bots, which are targeted by DoS attacks, may have their service permanently suspended without refund, at the sole discretion of Asia Virtual Solutions.
Proxies which are not the cause of frequent or unresolved abuse issues are allowed. Customers who operate proxies which are subject to repeated and disproportionate levels of abuse may have their service suspended. Proxy usage is not an acceptable justification for providing more than our normal maximum allocation of ip addresses (8 per dedicated server), nor will Asia Virtual Solutions “rotate” or otherwise frequently change ip addresses on request for proxy operators.
Any user may not:
a) Use 100% or more of system resources for longer then 10 minutes.
b) Run stand-alone, unattended server-side processes at any point in time on the server. This includes any and all daemons, such as IRCD.
c) Run any gaming servers such as counter-strike, half-life, battlefield1942, etc
d) Run TOR in any shape
We reserve the right to terminate any account without warning or notice if any of the above restrictions are violated and to examine the contents of any account at any time.”
