• 5.1.1. The hosting plans are not intended for use as a virtual disk. Any and all files in the storage area of the website must necessarily belong to the website and be indispensable for its operation. That is, it is not allowed to use the space intended for hosting to store backups of personal files or third parties, whatever their nature.
• 5.1.2. The hosting account has a limit on inodes according to the contracted plan and each file must not exceed 50MB of storage. If this limit is exceeded, files may be deleted without prior notice and the account may be deactivated from the daily backup system.

• 5.1.4. The number of domains that can be hosted is not subject to a limitation in their number, as long as all hosted domains are registered in the name of the person responsible (contracting) for the plan.
• 5.1.5. It is not allowed to use hosting to “mirror” other sites, as well as the “masking” of url / external links.
• 5.1.6. Do not archive email messages for more than 1 year (365 days).
We have a security mechanism in our Server, whereby if within a period of 1 hour 10 messages fail or are refused, from the next sending the messages are returned. Thus, for example, incorrect addresses, greylisting, or other situations that prevent a message from being delivered, will cause that once it occurs 10 times within an hour, it will cause the rest of the messages to be returned within that same hour. the period of 1 (one) hour and carry out the shipments again.
The e-mail service, like all other server services, is in a shared environment, which means that you and several other users who are hosted on the same server make use of e-mail. Therefore, it is necessary to establish rules for the rational and democratic use of the service, so that everyone can enjoy it under appropriate conditions and with satisfactory performance.
If you do not use the service in a manner consistent with your proposal, respecting limits and principles, it will not work in the desired and necessary way for other users and, like you, everyone expects and has the right to use it under ideal conditions.
The e-mail service in shared hosting plans is an accessory service, since the main “product” is the hosting of websites and for this purpose, our servers are configured. Misuse or misuse directly affects the server and the sites hosted on it, as well as the service itself for other users. Therefore, the e-mail service is exclusively intended for daily sending. What is it? These are the messages that result from the daily life of a company or professional, such as sending quotes, responses, exchanging files, personal or business communication, consultations, etc. Submissions for many people, who deal with the same subject as newsletters, email marketing, promotions, disclosures, communications, are considered mass submissions and are not allowed.
Therefore, they follow good practices recommended in the use of the service, as well as restrictions that we want you not to ignore, so that we do not have to restrict your use of the services:
All e-mail sending will have to be respected in terms of sending quantities, we have as a policy the amount of up to 200 e-mails per hour for each “Client” domain account, that is, each domain (example: www.example. com.br) may not exceed 200 e-mails sent per hour divided into all e-mail addresses within the domain (example: email@example.com).
The use of e-mails has as main focus the Human use so the amount that a Human can send e-mails for sending and receiving information will not have any problem. Therefore, from the moment it is sent via mass e-mails, it is no longer for Human use.
• 5.2.1. Do not set up automatic replies for all accounts, especially accounts that receive large volumes of spam or Email marketing, as this type of sending generally does not have a valid or active reply address.
• 5.2.2. Do not use the email service to forward content to large numbers of people.
• 5.2.3. Avoid addressing the same message to many recipients. Our addressing limit is 25 e-mail addresses, which is sufficient for every situation. If you need to send a message to more people, you certainly need another type of service.
• 5.2.5. Chains, lists, groups are not appropriate for this type of service, especially when dealing with a business or professional address. Book this type of email to your personal address.
• 5.2.6. Do not set up a domain email account as a return-path or reply-to (reply to) for very large external campaigns, otherwise the service and even your account will be jammed.
• 5.2.7. Always set up email accounts only through our tutorials, strictly following the settings indicated.
• 5.2.8. Guide all domain users on good practices.
• 5.2.9. The use of e-mail services for sending mass e-mail (Newsletter, communications, electronic newsletters, lists, e-mail marketing, promotions, disclosures, etc.) is not authorized, under any justification and at any frequency of sending .
• 5.2.10. The installation and use of mass mailing systems (Interspire, eMarketeer, PHP-Mailer, etc.) is not allowed. If identified, the folder in which it is installed may be blocked or the system removed or the hosting account will be subject to suspension.
• 5.2.11. Own shipping systems integrated or not to the site are also not allowed.
• 5.2.12. Resources for shipments of Nfe's, borderos, dispatches or similar, that send above 5% of the quota per hour of the account and / or with high frequency (daily), are not allowed. In these cases, one should consult the Sales Department to study a personalized plan.
• 5.2.13. Sites that use forms or any signature system with automatic response, without protection mechanisms such as captcha or equivalent, are not allowed and are subject to blocking or even suspension, in the event of exploitation with consequent massive shipments.
• 5.2.14. Sending SPAM, which is not synonymous with mass sending, is not allowed and is considered a very serious infraction. In general, any submission that does not meet 100% of CAPEM's requirements (www.capem.org.br), is classified as spam.
• 5.2.15. It is not allowed to offer, sell, rent or any form of assignment of mailing lists or mass mailing systems, using the domains hosted on our servers.
• 5.2.16. The e-mail service cannot be used for relay and can only be sent via e-mail accounts that are hosted on our servers (use our DNSs). Any submission per domain hosted by other providers is classifiable as a very serious infraction and subject to severe restrictions.
• 5.2.17. Concentrating a large volume of shipments in a short time is not allowed. Therefore, the sending of 10 (ten) or more messages in the interval of 1 (one) minute, by the same user, will be considered mass sending and subject to the application of the corresponding penalties.
• 5.2.18. The storage limit for an email account cannot exceed 1GB and each message contained in the account must not be stored for more than 1 year.
Non-compliance with email policy
Failure to comply with “good practices” does not constitute an infraction, as long as there is no impact on the shared environment. If this occurs, the preventive measures and penalties listed below may be applied, according to the degree of commitment of the service or the consequences for other users.
In the case of violations of the email policy, the following measures, restrictions or penalties may apply:
• 5.2.19. Written communication, opened by the Abuse Department, using the so-called Help Desk system.
• 5.2.20. Password change for e-mail account and cPanel.
• 5.2.21. Lowering the domain / hosting account shipping quota.
• 5.2.22. Blocking the e-mail account for a minimum period stipulated in an appropriate call.
• 5.2.23. Suspension of the hosting account for a minimum period stipulated in the appropriate call.
6. Domain register
The registration of national or international domains has rules and particularities due to the registration being granted by third parties. For every domain registration, the following apply:
• 6.1. Domain is a concession and therefore, registration does not guarantee ownership of it. Annual renewal is required to extend the concession. Failure to pay annual renewals will result in the loss of the concession.
• 6.2. An expired domain will be free for a new registration and can be registered by anyone else.
• 6.3. The registration of a domain is subject to its availability with the agency that grants the concession.
• 6.4. After registering a domain, its spelling cannot be changed.
• 6.5. Make sure to fill in the domain correctly, which will be registered in the corresponding form on our website, since the domain will be registered exactly according to the spelling you use. The Creation Group is not responsible if you type the domain incorrectly.
• 6.6. A domain that is different from another by just one letter, is another domain and requires a new registration.
• 6.7. Domain registration promotions are linked to hiring hosting plans and canceling the hosting plan automatically cancels the promotion.
• 6.8. Domains registered for free as a result of contracting hosting plans, will have their full value discounted in case of cancellation of the contracted plan to which it is linked and with eventual return of values of the canceled hosting plan, following the rules for cancellations of other services.
• 6.9. If you eventually opt for hosting plans on a periodic basis that gives the first free annual fee for a domain registration, it is necessary to order the domain registration in question, together with the hosting plan. Just making the option of the plan that gives such right, does not necessarily imply the registration of the corresponding domain.
• 6.10. The renewal amount for the domain registration can be changed according to the amounts charged by the entity that grants it and according to the exchange variation, in the case of international domains.
• 6.11. The Creation Group has no responsibility for the freezing of domains registered by it, when the reason is technical or administrative of the entity that grants the registration.
• 6.12. The impossibility of renewing the domain registration due to the non-payment of the renewal fee by the client, exempts Grupo Criação from responsibility for any type of loss or damage resulting from the loss of the domain concession.
• 6.13. After the domain expires, it may be lost. In some cases, it is possible to recover it for a restoration fee, which varies according to the extent. Consult the Sales Department to know the values.
Particularities of national domains (.br):
• 6.14. The transfer of a domain name is an administrative procedure of Registro.br and follows its rules / conditions. The Creation Group has no responsibility for such a procedure.
• 6.15. Prazos para publicação de DNSs, congelamento e reativação, são determinados pelo registro.br.
• 6.16. The use of the Administrative ID of the Creation Group for the registration of a domain with the Registro.br does not make the Creation Group the owner of the domain concession, but only its administrator before the entity.
• 6.17. Under the entity's own rules, there is no possibility to protect the domain registration data.
Particularities of international domains:
• 6.18. The whois data for a domain is provided by the respective granting bodies. The concealment of such data - when possible - will occur at an annual fee. Consult the Sales Department for the values for each domain / extension.
• 6.19. Failure to pay the renewal fee for an international domain until its expiration day results in a freeze on the exact expiration day. Therefore, we will advance the due date of the invoice in 3 days with the Creation Group so that the domain can be renewed.
• 6.20. The rules for transferring the holder of international domains - when possible - are stipulated by each registration body and, therefore, one must consult the necessary procedure for each domain extension, with the Sales Department.
Grupo Criação maintains a remote backup system for the Sites (in another datacenter), through which we back up our Sites,
• 7.1. The user is responsible for maintaining up-to-date backups of all data (website, e-mails, databases, etc.).
• 7.2. Some plans may be entitled to a free monthly amount of restorations, however, the accuracy or availability of the data to be restored is not guaranteed and in this case, it is just one more point of prevention.
• 7.3. There is the possibility of using our backup system to restore some lost data for plans that do not offer backup restorations, however this will occur by paying a one-time fee in the amount of R $ 50.00 for restoring files, directories or bank of data. For complete account restoration, including your settings, the cost will be R $ 150.00. However, the accuracy or availability of the data to be restored is not guaranteed and in this case, it is just one more point of prevention. The responsibility mentioned in the above topic "7.1." Remains with the user.
• 7.4. The period covered by the backup is the last 7 (SEVEN) days. Therefore, it is not possible to request restoration of lost data prior to seven days from the date of the request.
• 7.5. The backup is performed once a day and, therefore, the content eventually restored refers to that which existed in the account at the time (date and time) when it was generated. There is no backup generated by time.
• 7.6. The accuracy of the restoration of backups generated on servers of other providers is not the responsibility of the Creation Group.
• 7.7. A backup tool is available in the hosting accounts cPanel, whose conditions of use follow:
-The tool is only operational between 22:00 and 06:00;
-The backup generated via cPanel must be downloaded and stored in a safe place, no later than 48 hours after it has been generated. Backups with a generation date greater than 48 hours will be removed without prior notice from the server;
-It is not allowed to store backups of any kind and under any justification in the hosting accounts, except for the period provided for in item "7.7. - b.";
-The backup produced by cPanel is intended for restoration on other servers that also make use of cPanel. Its restoration in other systems, does not offer guarantee of accuracy or functioning;
-The files, e-mails and database can also be backed up manually and at any time using the tools available in cPanel or FTP programs;
-Restoring backup generated on our servers, on third party servers, is not supported;
• 7.8. Importing a database backup via phpMyAdmin is restricted to the 100MB limit. Above this value, the technician responsible for the site must dismember the database in smaller banks up to the limit mentioned or use remote access tools for total import. Such a procedure is not covered by the support
Direct hosting and reseller hosting plans are on shared servers, which means that your account is hosted with several other accounts, which use the same email service, databases, FTP and all other services of servers, all under a range of IPs. Therefore, everything that happens in the shared environment directly or indirectly affects all accounts hosted there, in a similar way to the residents of a condominium that use the common area items and, for this reason, among others, the security aspects are very important.
Account and server security situations and responsibilities:
• 8.1. The user who causes the blocking of the server's IP, either by direct actions or by negligence to any of the security protocols required to use the services, may be held responsible for adopting the necessary remedial measures resulting from the block. The following are some direct or indirect actions that may cause the IP or server to be blocked and that may cause the person responsible to take measures to correct the problem and compensate for losses:
-Bulk submissions (newsletters, communications, email marketing, promotions, disclosures, distribution lists, etc.);
-Phishing, whether voluntary or due to a lack of corrective / preventive actions, such as not adopting secure passwords and using tools to ensure that the account access device is free of malware;
-Refuse to prove that account access devices are secure;
-Access the server's resources (e-mail, FTP, cPanel, ssh, etc.) through networks or devices whose security cannot be guaranteed (ex: lanhouse or open / public Wi-Fi);
-Use of passwords with low security standards or use the same password for different resources (ftp, cPanel, e-mail, etc.);
-Provide your access data to third parties;
• 8.2. Blocking the IP of the mentioned server and in the conditions of the topic, will result in a fine of R $ 300.00 applied to the account that causes the block.
• 8.3. It is the user's responsibility to use secure passwords for all types of account access. So always use complex passwords, combining upper and lower case letters, numbers and special characters. A good password must be at least 8 (eight) characters, but 14 (fourteen) is recommended.
• 8.4. Whenever it is absolutely necessary to provide your password to third parties, such as our support team, use a temporary password or change it after use.
• 8.5. Be careful when accessing any resource that requires a password (email, cPanel, FTP, etc.) on devices (computer, smartphone, tablet, etc.) whose security you cannot guarantee, such as in a lanhouse, friends' computers or on Wi networks -Fi public.
• 8.6. Keep in mind that every device is subject to being compromised by malware (trojans, spyware, worns, etc.) and therefore, often use good antimalware tools to monitor and scan for threats, as many of them are capable of Password “theft”, which can be “just” from your email account, but can also be from your credit card or Internet Banking.
• 8.7. Currently it is common for sites based on free and open source CMSs. Many of them have dozens and in some cases, hundreds of security flaws that allow different levels of hacking or exploitation of the account, for example, to carry out DDoS attacks. It is your responsibility to keep such applications up to date, as well as apply corrections to existing flaws.
• 8.8. In the event that there are no patches for unsafe applications and the account holder is unable to make the necessary correction, vulnerable components or applications should be removed from the account.
• 8.9. Whenever you identify or at least be suspicious of situations that put your account at risk (website, email, databases, etc.), let us know.
• 8.10. If our technical management identifies situations that put the hosting environment at risk, we may apply measures to preserve the server, services and other users, which may include:
-Removing content that could endanger the server or any other aspect provided for in this term;
-Change passwords for email accounts, cPanel, FTP, databases, etc;
-Request means to prove that the computer that has access to the account is free of malware, by providing logs of programs specifically intended for this purpose;
-Update of CMSs;
-Blocking account folders;
-Suspension of the hosting account;
-Lowering of resources;
• 8.11. Technical Support does not cover content created or altered by the user and it is the user's responsibility to adopt all necessary procedures and guarantees to keep it safe according to good programming practices or correct it, when vulnerability or even indications are identified.
• 8.12. Forms, registration systems and administrative area login, must use protection features, such as captcha or equivalent, as well as secure passwords. If there are signs of problems in these aspects, the measures provided for in item "10.10." of this chapter.
• 8.13. Although we work for zero failure rates, technical problems can occur with possible data loss and it is therefore the user's responsibility to keep up-to-date backups of all data present in the account. Our backup systems are primarily intended for our guarantee and data recovery.
• 8.14. If a situation is identified that could put the hosting environment at risk, the Creation Group may update, change or disable server services without prior notice, as it is an emergency situation.
Providing domain hosting services and everything related, involves a series of technical aspects and appropriate infrastructure. Like everything related, there are cares and situations that necessarily can or will occur and that are inevitable to guarantee the services:
• 9.1. There are two possibilities regarding the update of our network servers:
-Scheduled: In these cases, the Creation Group will issue a statement addressed to the e-mail in the register. It usually occurs at night or at dawn and on weekends or holidays;
-Emergency: Occurs when software or hardware has flaws or even signs of failure, which require immediate action in order to avoid losing data or jeopardizing the security of the hosting environment. In this case, there is no prior notice and the necessary procedures will be adopted when it is more appropriate to the technical team or necessary;
• 9.2. Usually the Emergency Update is the result of a hardware or software failure. Both situations can be unpredictable and in many cases the correction too and, therefore, the time needed to reestablish services cannot be predicted.
• 9.3. The Update, when requested by the user, will be subject to confirmation as to its need by the technical area and if proven, scheduled according to our availability.
• 9.4. When an Update occurs directly in the datacenter where we host our servers, prior communication will depend on whether it is programmed by the datacenter or on an emergency basis and in this case, it releases us from prior notice.
Technical Support, Sales and Billing, are provided to assist the user in relation to various aspects in which the user encounters difficulties or has doubts. For this, there are a series of procedures, care and situations that, if observed, make the support more agile and efficient.
• 10.1. The available service channels are the chat, telephone and help desk, with the following hours:
-Chat: Monday to Friday, from 09:00 to 17:00. There is no service on national holidays;
-Telephone: Monday to Friday, from 09:00 to 17:00. There is no service on national holidays;
-Help Desk: Monday to Friday, from 09:00 to 17:00. There is no service on national holidays, responses will be prioritized for emergency issues, such as unavailability of services. Questions that do not imply the functioning of the services, may be answered only in the next working hours;
• 10.2. The available service channels can be changed if necessary or according to demand.
• 10.3. Todos atendimentos são registrados e suas informações mantidas para segurança de ambas as partes – cliente e Grupo Criação – mesmo após o cancelamento de qualquer serviço contratado.
• 10.4. The response time for calls is up to 24 hours for questions of a technical nature, unless the necessary procedures or complexity of the question requires more time or there is a dependence on user information that is not contained in the call.
• 10.5. Failure to comply with the deadline stipulated in the item above, does not result in a fine or penalty of any kind to Grupo Criativo.
• 10.6. The support provided on weekends, holidays and outside business hours, is called Technical Duty and prioritizes issues according to the topic above "10.4.".
• 10.7. The answers are given in order of opening the call. Thus, users who opened calls before you will be answered first, except for emergencies, such as unavailability of services.
• 10.8. When a service is unavailable, check the following points:
-If there is no financial pending associated with the service in question;
-Check that the domain's DNSs are assigned to the Creation Group, published and propagated;
-If the domain is not frozen;
-Check that the DNS zones are correctly configured;
-Whether there is Internet connectivity from the device used;
-Test accessibility through other access points or connections;
• 10.9. Do not open two or more calls on the same subject. Such a procedure increases the service time instead of shortening it. In addition, important information about the issue can be contained in different calls, compromising the efficiency of the solution and the response.
• 10.10. Always provide complete and accurate information. This makes service faster and more accurate.
• 10.11. Try to direct your doubts or difficulties to the correct department. For example, opening a call about payments to Technical Support will take your response longer, since your call will have to be transferred to another department and will enter the end of the service queue.
• 10.12. Before resorting to any of the service channels, always make sure your question is not addressed in one of our tutorials.
• 10.13. In cases where there is an opening of a call by the Creation Group, related to infractions or security issues, the maximum response time is 48 hours. If there is no interaction on your part, it may result in partial or complete suspension of the account.
• 10.14. The service via chat and telephone is intended for simple questions that can be resolved in a few minutes. Events that require more service time and, above all, analyzes and tests, must be dealt with by opening a call at the Help Desk.
• 10.15. Support provided under conditions of exception or courtesy, does not imply further repetition.
• 10.16. If it is identified that any problems with the service are the result of intentional misuse or abusive practice, support may be provided under specific pricing or even terminated.
• 10.17. It is the customer's responsibility to keep their registration updated and, above all, their e-mail address, which is the main means of the Group Creation with the customer. Therefore, in the event of incorrect or outdated data, which prevents our contact with the customer, the Group is automatically exempt from liability.
• 10.18. The customer may be asked to provide additional information in order to confirm the identity of the person responsible for the account and mainly to analyze any reported problems. When this occurs, the refusal to provide such data will imply the end of support.
• 10.19. Address our attendants in an appropriate manner, using simple language, participatory posture, respecting the rules of education and respect for others. The use of crude or vulgar expressions and even the lack of respect, may result in interruption of service.
11. Technical support
Technical Support is able to help you in a wide range of situations, as long as they are strictly related to the service we offer. It is important to know how to distinguish between support assignments and which ones you should seek outside assistance or act on your own.
• 11.1. They are covered by the technical support of Grupo Criação and their duties are:
-Ensure the proper functioning of the tools that make up the hosting service, such as the features of cPanel (control panel) or Apache (service for displaying web pages);
-Perform procedures on the server to which the user does not have access, such as, for example, personalization of certain DNS zones. In this specific case, when referring to external services, the necessary information must be provided by the support of the person involved;
-How to use the tools we offer, with the exception of CMSs that are installed via Softaculous, which is nothing more than the automation of the CMS installation process, such as Joomla or Wordpress;
-Configuration of services according to the requirements of the installed applications, noting that it is the user's responsibility to inform such requirements and provided that it does not require the installation of services that are not part of the standard services of our shared servers;
-Provide information about features and configurations of services that are part of the servers;
-Account migration, as long as the necessary technical conditions are observed for the effective migration and collection of amounts previously informed for the procedure, when applicable;
