Website Hosting and Design


What defines an Adult site?

Selltech Hosting considers an adult site:
bulletAny site whose revenue is gained in part or whole from its adult content.
bulletPhotos or videos showing frontal nudity on either men or women for non-scientific or non-artistic purposes.
bulletRevenue-generating hyperlinks to sites who meet the above two conditions.
Because the Internet is a global communication tool, and we have clients from many countries, it is difficult to dictate what is considered "adult material." It is not our function to discriminate against those who choose to utilize adult content or adult related material. This being said, there are several reasons why Selltech Hosting restricts adult sites from its servers.

Why does Selltech Hosting have this policy?

A virtual server is a shared environment where many sites reside on each particular machine. This being said, consider that an average "adult site" gets more hits than 100 standard websites. Some of the smaller adult sites get around 5 GB of transfer per day. With these types of resources being utilized, our servers would be severely slowed if we allowed these high traffic sites to reside on our servers. On top of that, we would be forced to raise our prices to pay for the additional bandwidth. We strive to keep our servers fast and inexpensive, and our bandwidth clear; therefore, adult sites are not an option.

Selltech Hosting reserves the right to decide what it considers "adult content", "adult material", "sexually explicit", or "sexually related". Let us know if you are unsure of the approval of your site before placing an order
