Free Content: Donation-based hosting of low traffic non-commercial sites, such as:
Commercial sites welcome! We are supported by donations. Examples of commercial or high-traffic sites for which donation would be accepted:
We will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes non-acceptable content.
High Resource Policy
Any site that is deemed as impairing the performance of our servers either by
high disk utilization, high bandwidth usage, or high CPU usage will be entered
into our "High Resource Membership" program. High Resource sites are
sites that use an excessive amount of system resources such as bandwidth,
Storage or CPU utilization. It is at anch.org's sole discretion to decide
which sites are "High Resource" sites. Sites who have been deemed as a
"High Resource" site may be asked to supply additional donations to cover upgrades in equipment and/or bandwidth.
We can enable CGI on your web page if you need it. You are free to use any CGI scripts you
wish, however we reserve the right to disable any CGI script that effects normal
server operation. We also check scripts for security holes.
We do not allow free clients to install their own chat rooms (unless the chat server is hosted elsewhere).
These tend to be large system hogs and we cannot normally allow it.
Background Running Programs
We do not allow programs to run continually in the background. These are
considered on a one to one basis and for founding members only. If you want to
run your own server and try these out, go for it!
Again, we currently do not allow IRC or IRC bots to be operated on our servers
but you are free to host such programs yourself.
Commercial Advertising - Email:
Our servers may not be the source, intermediary, or destination address involved
in the transmission of spam, flames, or mail bombs. Your domain may not be
referenced as originator, intermediary, or reply-to address in any of the above.
We consider spam any mass unsolicited message in the mediums of Newsgroups and
Email If you are found to have spammed, then we may immediately, without
warning, disable your domain.
As such, any violation will result in immediate deactivation of services
without refund. There are currently no ISPs, domain referrers or link
exchanges that we know of who allow spam. If you want advertising that
works join our Free-for-all links page or speak to our marketing department.
Anybody trying to access the shell or any other persons web site with out any
permission from the system operator or owner of the site is strictly prohibited.
Any attempts to undermine or cause harm to a server will result in immediate
deactivation of services without refund. If you are a hacker and have the
legitimate desire to investigate our servers for security flaws, please at least
notify us first!

Anch.org. reserves the right to cancel service at any time. Donations
advance of cancellation may be pro-rated and paid by anch.org if
institutes its right of cancellation. If cancellation is caused
by violation of these policies, then no refund can be considered.
Customers can cancel service any time and we will consider
refunding donations, if requested, on a case-by-case basis. Due to
security concerns, all account
cancellations must be done in such a way that we know it's you and not some third party, such as writing via US mail with a valid

and last 4 digits of credit card, if there is one on file. If donations
