You must take reasonable security precautions. You must protect the confidentiality of your password, and you should change your password periodically.

Updating Content Management Systems (CMS), Blogs and Other Scripts

It is mandatory that you run on the latest stable release of any commercial or opensource script you have on your domain. All CMS sites (Drupal, Joomla e.t.c) must be running on the latest stable release of the respective CMS.

We reserve the right to suspend your account/site if you are running outdated software and have ignored prior warnings to update it.

Security Consciousness

Ensure all scripts on your account are properly coded to optimise security. We STRONGLY recommend you do not use or build scripts that store passwords in the database as clear text. Ensure you escape HTML user inputs and explicitly declare filenames to include when using PHP includes for your navigation.

We are doing our best to ensure the environment is secure for everyone and consistently review our server hardening practice. We will not be held responsible for any damages or loss caused as a result of your coding negligence. Hacked sites will be suspended until the root cause is known AND fixed.

Bulk Commercial Email

You are not allowed to send bulk commercial emails on Shared and Reseller hosting plans. Bulk Commercial mailing is only allowed on the VPS Hosting plans and you must obtain TruDigits' advance approval for any bulk commercial mailing activities, which will not be given unless you are able to demonstrate all of the following to TruDigits' reasonable satisfaction:

  1. Your intended recipients have given their consent to receive e-mail via some affirmative means, such as an opt-in procedure.
  2. Your procedures for soliciting consent include reasonable means to ensure that the person giving consent is the owner of the e-mail address for which the consent is given.
  3. You retain evidence of the recipient's consent in a form that may be promptly produced on request, and you honor recipient's and TruDigits' requests to produce consent evidence within 72 hours of receipt of the request.
  4. The body of the e-mail must describe how the e-mail address was obtained, for example, "You opted in to receive this e-mail promotion from our Web site or from one of our partner sites," and information on how to request evidence of the consent, for example, "If you would like to learn more about how we received your e-mail address please contact us at abuse@**yourdomain.com**.
  5. You have procedures in place that allow a recipient to easily revoke their consent - such as a link in the body of the e-mail, or instructions to reply with the word "Remove" in the subject line. Revocations of consent are honored within 72 hours, and you notify recipients that their revocation of their consent will be honored in 72 hours.
  6. You must post an abuse@**yourdomain.com** e-mail address on the first page of any Web site associated with the e-mail, you must register that address at abuse.net, and you must promptly respond to messages sent to that address.
  7. You must have a Privacy Policy posted for each domain associated with the mailing.
  8. You have the means to track anonymous complaints.
  9. You may not obscure the source of your e-mail in any manner. Your e-mail must include the recipients e-mail address in the body of the message or in the "TO" line of the e-mail; and
  10. You otherwise comply with the CAN SPAM Act and other applicable law.

These policies apply to messages sent using your TruDigits' service, or to messages sent from any network by you or any person on your behalf that directly or indirectly refer the recipient to a site hosted via your TruDigits service. In addition, you may not use a third party e-mail service that does not practice similar procedures for all its customers. TruDigits may test and otherwise monitor your compliance with its requirements, including requesting opt-in information from a random sample of your list at any time.

Unsolicited E-Mail

You may not send any unsolicited e-mail, either in bulk or individually, to any person who has indicated that they do not wish to receive it. You must comply with the rules of any other network you access or participate in using your TruDigits' services.

Material Protected by Copyright

You may not publish, distribute, or otherwise copy in any manner any music, software, art, or other work protected by copyright law unless:

  1. You have been expressly authorized by the owner of the copyright for the work to copy the work in that manner.
  2. TruDigits will terminate the service of repeat copyright infringers


We do not allow any form of redirection to banking, legal, news or Government websites. Redirection to any other kinds of sites will be approved on completion of the verification process.

Newsgroup, Chat Forums, Other Network

You must comply with the rules and conventions for postings to any bulletin board, chat group or other forum in which you participate, such as IRC and USENET groups including their rules for content and commercial postings. These groups usually prohibit the posting of off-topic commercial messages, or mass postings to multiple forums.
