Due to the heavy server resources required, we
prohibit the use of certain bulletin boards such as
cgi based forums, UBB (Ultimate Bulletin Board) and
YABB (Yet Another Bulletin Board). We do have
alternative boards we recommend, such as VBulletin
or phpBB, which are MySQL database driven boards,
versus using flat file databases.
databases which consume large amounts of resources
will be immediately terminated or suspended upon
AceHostNet's discretion. CGI scripts found to consume
large amounts of system resources will immediately
be terminated or suspended upon AceHostNet's
Websites found to consume large amounts of system
resources such as httpd, cgi, mysql can be suspended
at anytime upon AceHostNet's discretion. AceHostNet
considers at least 15% CPU Usage, 10% Memory Usage,
and 10% mySQL usage as high resource.

AceHostNet commits 100% stability to all our servers,

non-reseller that AceHostNet feels is degrading the
performance of our network may be suspended at
AceHostNet's discretion, without being required to
notify the end user in advance. As a set standard,
AceHostNet will run spot testing anytime we feel our
network may be becoming unstable due to a High
Resource Customer. If a customer is found to be
utilizing more then 7% of CPU / 7% Memory / 7% MySQL,
they will be sent a courtesy notice. The 2nd notice,
the customer will be suspended for 7 days. The 3rd
notice, the customer will be terminated due to High
account using flat field forums will be given 24
hour notice to remove the scripts or move them to a
mysql based forums. AceHostNet suggests Open Bulletin
Board, VBulletin, and XMB as alternate boards.
What does AceHostNet consider "CGI Abuse"?
Any site whose CGI programs are using excessive
amounts of system resources. Excessive amounts is
defined as any amount that results in substantial
degradation of server performance. AceHostNet is the
sole determinant of what constitutes degraded server
performance. Due to their use of flat files instead
of databases, AceHostNet does not allow the use of any
cgi based forums. Use of these boards for large or
very active forums results in system performance
degradation, and cannot be allowed in our shared
