Adult Related Websites:
4urweb has a zero-tolerance policy on all adult related websites. We do not seek to abridge users' constitutional rights, but we uphold all laws applicable to the content of sites hosted on our servers. The average "Adult Site" gets more hits than 50 standard Websites combined. Some adult sites get around 5 to 10 GB of transfer per day. Our servers would be severely slowed with these types of resources being utilized. We would even be forced to raise our prices to pay for the additional bandwidth. We strive to keep our servers fast and inexpensive; therefore, adult sites are not allowed.
Warez Sites are sites that are typically used by "hackers" to trade (upload/download) illegally pirated copies of software programs with one another. 4urweb has a zero-tolerance policy on all Warez Sites. Sites that become a trading post for "warez" programs will be reported to any and all regulatory, administrative, and/or governmental authorities for prosecution.
