SPAM and Unsolicited
Commercial Email (UCE):5x.net takes a zero
tolerance approach to the sending of Unsolicited Commercial
Email (UCE) or SPAM over our network. Very simply this means
that customers of 5x.net may not use or permit others to
use our network to transact in UCE. Customers of 5x.net may
not host, or permit hosting of, sites or information that is
advertised by UCE from other networks. In addition, it is not
acceptable to transmit bulk email through remote SOCKS, HTTP or
other similar proxies who in turn make a SMTP (TCP port 25)
connection to the destination mail servers. This technique may
result in account suspension or termination. Violations of this
policy carry severe penalties, including termination of service.
In order to prevent unnecessary blacklisting due to spam we
reserve the right to occasionally sample bulk email being sent
Violation of 5x.net's SPAM policy will result
in severe penalties. Upon notification of an alleged
violation of our SPAM policy, 5x.net will initiate an
immediate investigation (within 24 hours of
notification). During the investigation, 5x.net may restrict customer access to the network to prevent
further violations. If a customer is found to be in
violation of our SPAM policy, 5x.net may, at its
sole discretion, restrict, suspend or terminate customer's
account. Further, 5x.net reserves the right to
pursue civil remedies for any costs associated with the
investigation of a substantiated policy violation. 5x.net
will notify law enforcement officials if the violation is
believed to be a criminal offense.

"Administrative Fee" of $150 and your account
will be reviewed for possible immediate termination. A
second violation will result in an "Administrative
Fee" of $300 and immediate termination of your
account. Users who violate this policy agree that in

As our Customers are ultimately responsible for the
actions of their clients over the 5x.net network,
it is advisable that Customers develop a similar, or
stricter, policy for their clients.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: BEGINNING IMMEDIATELY, anyone hosting websites or
services on their server that support spammers or cause any of
our IP space to be listed in any of the various Spam Databases
will have their server immediately removed from our network.
The server will not be reconnected until such time that you
agree to remove ANY and ALL traces of the
offending material immediately upon reconnection and agree to
allow us access to the server to confirm that all material has
been COMPLETELY removed. Severe violations may result
in immediate and permanent removal of the server from our

IP Address Ownership: If 5x.net assigns
Customer an Internet Protocol address for Customer's use,

belong only to 5x.net, and Customer shall have no
right to use that Internet Protocol address except as
permitted by 5x.net in its sole discretion in
connection with the Services, during the term of this
Agreement. 5x.net shall maintain and control
ownership of all Internet Protocol numbers and addresses
that may be assigned to Customer by 5x.net, and 5x.net
reserves the right to change or remove any and all such
Internet Protocol numbers and addresses, in its sole and
absolute discretion. Our allocation of IP addresses is
limited by ARIN's new policies. These new policies state
that use of IP addresses for IP based virtual hosts will
not be accepted as justification for new IP addresses.
What this means to you is that you MUST use name-based
hosting where possible. We will periodically review IP
address usage, and if we find that clients are using IP
addresses where name-based hosting could be used, we will
revoke authorization to use those IP addresses that could
be used with name-based hosting.
Bandwidth and Disk Usage: Customer agrees that
bandwidth and disk usage shall not exceed the number of
megabytes per month for the Services ordered by Customer
on the Order Form (the "Agreed Usage"). 5x.net

and absolute discretion. If 5x.net takes any
corrective action under this section, Customer shall not
be entitled to a refund of any fees paid in advance prior

discretion, collect a deposit, in an amount determined by

customer's or user's activities to determine if a
violation of the AUP has occurred,
nor do we assume any responsibility through our AUP to
monitor or police Internet-related activities.
First violation: Any User, which 5x.net determines to have violated any element of this Acceptable

inappropriate activity is detected, all accounts of the

investigation is complete. Prior notification to the Customer
