Space and Client Content: Single-domain hosting accounts: BASIC
Networks offers various single-domain hosting accounts. Neither disk space nor
bandwidth can be increased. We reserve the right to not host any single
website that consumes over 5000 MB of disk space. Each plan has a 15,000
file limit. Single-domain accounts are to be used by the primary owner
only. Owners of any multi-domain or reseller plan are welcome to resell
services. Client agrees that webpages and files uploaded to our servers
will not violate any state, federal or foreign laws or regulations; infringe
on any intellectual property rights of BASIC
Networks or any third party; be defamatory, slanderous or trade libelous; be threatening
or harassing; be discriminatory based on gender, race, age; promote hate;
or contain viruses or other computer programming defects which result
in damage to BASIC
Networks or any third party. Customers may not run IRC bots or clients. Unacceptable uses of our service also include:
Bulk emailing, unsolicited emailings, newsgroup
spamming, copyrighted MP3s, illegal content, illegal
adult content (e.g. showing minors), copyright infringement,
trademark infringement, warez, cracks, or
software serial numbers. BASIC
Networks will be the sole and final arbiter as to what constitutes a violation
of this policy.
Usage: (1) Hosting Plans: BASIC
Networks offers various plans with various data transfer allocations per month.
All single-domain plans have a 2 GB daily limit and all multi-domain and
reseller hosting plans have a daily 15 GB limit. Monthly limits are listed
in the plan details for each hosting plan. Bandwidth is calculated
by calendar month. Single sites that use over 2 GB
per day can automatically be disabled. Bandwidth cannot be combined with
multiple plans. We reserve the right to not host any single website that
consumes over 30 GB per month.
(2) VPS Servers and Dedicated Servers: VPS accounts or dedicated servers come
with a set bandwidth allotment (usually
300 GB to 500 GB for VPS accounts and 1000
or 1500 GB for dedicated servers). This
represents the amount of bandwidth that
a customer is allowed to use for each calendar
month. If a customer exceeds this allotment for
any reason in any calendar month, even if
the service was cancelled
during the month, Client agrees to be charged overage
bandwidth at a rate of $28 per 50 gigabytes.
Bandwidth billing is done in arrears, and
Client will receive a bill for overage bandwidth
during the first week of the following month
that the overage occurred. It is the customer's responsibility
to monitor bandwidth usage and to pay
for all overages.
Resource User Policy: Resources are defined as bandwidth and/or processor utilization.
A website is considered to be using "Excessive amounts of resources"
when it monopolizes the resources available by using 10% or more of system
resources for longer than 60 seconds. There are numerous activities that
could cause such problems; these include: CGI scripts, PHP, FTP, HTTP,
etc. A site that consumes over 2GB/day or 30 GB/month of bandwidth is
also considered "excessive resources." This policy is only implemented
in extreme circumstances and is intended to prevent the misuse of our
servers. We reserve the rights to suspend or terminate any hosting account
that we feel is jeopardizing our network. BASIC
Networks will be the sole and final arbiter as to what constitutes a violation
of this policy.
- MySQL: Each database has a 3 user limit, 36,000 queries/user per hour and
3,600 connections per hour.
"Spam": UCE/UBE or "Spam" originating from a BASIC
Networks account, or associated with a BASIC
Networks account, is not tolerated. This includes any e-mail that promotes web
sites hosted on a BASIC
Networks account but is sent from an e-mail address not associated with that BASIC
Networks account. Client shall not use their BASIC
Networks services for chain letters, junk mail, bulk-email, or any use of distribution
lists to any person who has not given specific permission to be included
in such a process. BASIC
Networks reserves the right to deactivate or terminate any account(s) upon any
indication of such activity without notice. There will be a $140 clean
up fee if an account was suspended for policy violation. There is a 2000
Email limit that can be sent out within a 24 hour period.
Information: False Information. Client agrees not to post false or
inaccurate information to news groups in violation of the news groups'
rules and regulations. If any news groups or service providers contact BASIC
Networks concerning unethical, false or unlawful activities by you, BASIC
Networks reserves the right to terminate your service without notice.
Software Only: Client agrees to use only properly licensed third party
software in connection with Client's use of the Services.
Networks will make every reasonable effort to protect and backup data for Client
on a regular basis, however BASIC
Networks does not guarantee the existence, accuracy, or regularity of its backup
services and, therefore, client is solely responsible for independent
backup of data stored on Providers server and network. There is a one
time fee of $100 for our Administrator to retreive client's individual
back-up files. (We like to encourage you to make your own backups
our plans allow you to do so from the hosting control panel.)
Uptime: BASIC Networks Corp. have a 99.9% average uptime across the
entire network at large, which includes webservers, mailservers, and more
- as a whole. If a single server is temporarily offline, the rest of the BASIC
Networks servers remain unaffected and uninterrupted, thus contributing to our
Name Registration: BASIC
Networks uses eNom and Register.com for domain name registration. All listed registration
and transfer fees are annual fees. (Note that domains do not need to be
transferred to one of our our registrars for the sites to be hosted with BASIC
We reserve the right to refuse services to anyone engaging in what is
generally known as "domain hijacking."
its sole discretion, BASIC
Networks has the right to refuse any and all service or services to any applicant,
customer, client whether it be an individual or legal entity.

BASIC Networks Corp. takes privacy in the digital age seriously; our privacy policies are governed by the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We have created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our commitment to you, our customer, through transparent, easy-to-understand information regarding our data practices. You will understand what we collect, why we collect it and what we do with it. This policy applies to all BASIC Networks brands, websites, apps, products, services or technologies (we will collectively refer to these as “Services”). Additional privacy practices for certain Services can be found in Details for Specific Products and Services.
Information Collection: Account Level
At an Account Level, we collect and use information necessary to enable you to purchase and manage Services, provide you with support for those Services and to curate your experience with us. Some information is collected and used based on contractual consent and other is based on informed consent, which may be changed at any time.
- Basic Account Information:
Information Collected: Our site uses forms in which you give us contact information (such as your name, address, phone number, fax number, billing information, IP address and email address) so you can create an account, place orders, register domains, request information, and request support help. As you use your account, we may also collect support requests and other related types of information that is specific to the management of your account and Services with us.
Legal Requirement: This type of information is legally and/or contractually required to be able to purchase and use Services. For example, we are required to be able to verify this type of information upon request by our payment processor. It is also required to be able to serve legal notices to you and is mandated by certain Services we offer. In addition, some Services, such as domain name registrations, require this information for you to purchase them. If you are purchasing a domain from us, we are required by law to collect and retain this information. We are further required to verify that the information provided is accurate and serve legally required notices regarding your domain(s). Consent for the collection, use and retention of this information for these purposes is considered to be contractually given for the duration of your use of such Service and any legally required retention period.
- How We Use This Information
Sending Emails, (a) Legally Required Mails: As noted above, we use emails to communicate with you, to confirm your placed orders, to send information that you have requested and to serve legally or contractually required communications. Legally required emails cover ICANN mandated verification emails, renewal notices and any other policy or procedure created by ICANN which governs the purchase of domains. Additionally, we may be required by law to serve notices to you such as DMCA Takedown Notices, UDRP notices, etc. Or, we may deem a change to one of our policies to be material and, therefore, determine a duty (though not a legal requirement) to inform you of this change. These types of communications do not fall under any of our opt-out procedures.
Sending Emails, (b) Service Communications & Promotional Communications: We also may use this information when it is important for us to contact you regarding functionality changes to Services you have purchased and/or our website and provide customer service (“Service Communications”.) By creating an account with us and/or purchasing our Services, you agree to receive these types of communication and acknowledge that they are not optional. We also use this information to share details about new services and special offers we think you'll find valuable (“Promotional Communications”.) You are able to opt-out of receiving Promotional Communications (or opt-into) through preferences in your account's admin/billing panel and during the signup process for newly ordered products.
Legally Required Disclosure: We will never give share your information without your permission or in ways other than as outlined in this policy. The only exceptions to this are when we are required by law, in the good faith belief that such action is necessary in order to comply with the law, or when we must comply with a legal process. Examples of these types of exceptions are court orders, subpoenas, and UDRP/URS processes. In each of these situations, we will carefully review the documentation provided and only comply if such documentation meets requisite legal standards.
Changes in Our Practices: If we change our information-handling practices or other privacy aspects, we will post those changes on this privacy statement. If we make any material changes we will notify you by means of a notice on this site prior to the change becoming effective, and we may also try to notify you through email of the privacy changes, if necessary.
- Retention & Deletion of Account Information
Personal Information Following Termination of Account. When your BASIC Networks account is cancelled (either voluntarily or involuntarily) all of your personally identifiable information is placed in “deactivated” status within our corresponding databases. However, you should know that deactivation of your account does not mean your personally identifiable information has been deleted from our database entirely. We will retain and use your personally identifiable information, if necessary, in order to resolve disputes, enforce our agreements and/or as required by laws or regulations. Thus, it may not be immediately deleted upon request and is an approved exception to GDPR deletion rights. By creating an account with us, using our support services and/or purchasing Services, you acknowledge and agree to these terms of retention.
Information Collection: Site Usage
Device Information: We collect information from your devices (computers, mobile phones, tablets, etc.), such as IP address, cookie information, so that we may recognize your devices to provide you with legal notices (if required by your country of residence), support services (when you contact our support staff) and personalized experiences on our site and emails. Certain types of collection and use may be optional and controlled via our cookie tools.
Information from Others: We are dedicated to continually improving your experience on our website. Like many companies, we use third-parties to help us track browsing, identify technical issues and provide ways to enhance your overall experience. Several of the tools that we use and what they do are:
Testimonials: We post customer testimonials on some of our sales websites which may contain personally identifiable information. We do obtain the customer's consent via email, prior to posting the testimonial, to post their name along with their testimonial. If you would like to request the removal of your testimonial from one of our sales sites, please contact us via email or support form.
- Log Files: We use information gathered about you from our site statistics via log files provided by third-party tracking partners (for example, your IP address) to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our website. We also gather broad demographic information from this data to help us improve our site and make your browsing and purchasing experiences more enjoyable. This is not linked to any personally identifiable information.
We use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your internet browser’s “help” file.
Third-Party Product Offerings & Websites: Our site also contains links to other third-party websites, especially where we offer their products or services. BASIC Networks Corp. (basicnetworks.net) is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites. We encourage you to carefully read the privacy statement of any website you visit.
How We Share This Information
- With Your Consent: We will share information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of BASIC Networks when we have your consent. This includes third party providers who offer products or services through our service portal (Google's "G Suite" is again a good example here). These providers will each have their own privacy policies and will be identified in our Details for Specific Products and Services section.
- Within BASIC Networks Corp.: Information may also be shared within BASIC Networks to provide support and delivery of Services you purchase.
- With Partners: We may share your information with nonaffiliated companies who are:
- Analytics and Business Partners (Limited to Non-Personally Identifiable Information): We may share aggregated or pseudonymous information (including demographic information) with partners, such as measurement analytics, apps, or other companies. We do not, however, share information that personally identifies you (personally identifiable information is information such as name or email address.)
When you use third-party apps, websites or other products integrated with our Services (a good example are website scripts installed via the Fantastico or Softaculous script installers), they may collect information about your activities subject to their own terms and privacy policies.
- For Legal and Other Purposes: We may access, preserve and disclose information to investigate, prevent, or take action in connection with: (i) legal process and legal requests; (ii) enforcement of our general Terms of Service; (iii) claims that any content violates the rights of third-parties; (iv) requests for customer service; (v) technical issues; (vi) protecting the rights, property or personal safety of BASIC Networks Corp., its users or the public; (vii) establishing or exercising our legal rights or defending against legal claims; or (viii) as otherwise required by law. This may include responding to lawful governmental requests. Learn more about how we evaluate and respond to these requests here.
- New Ownership: If the ownership or control of all or part of BASIC Networks Corp. or a specific Service changes as a result of a merger, acquisition or sale of assets, we may transfer your information to the new owner.
Our site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. We use 256-bit SSL security to encrypt any transmissions when you provide credit card information, personal data, etc. No method of electronic storage or transmission over the internet is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
Protecting Children’s Privacy
