Instant Setup is just an auto process to complete the Domain Registration, Shared and virtual-private-servers Hosting order. This auto process sometimes fails due to certain conditions given below:
The terms “unlimited” and “unmetered” are defined by our experience with bulk number of clients situated similarly. This means that your use of our resources may not exceed that of similarly situated customers. Examples of primary purposes for an account that are not allowed include, but are not limited to:
ZeoHost expressly reserves the right to review every shared account for excessive usage of CPU, disk space and other resources that may be caused by a violation of this Agreement or the Acceptable Use Policy. ZeoHost may, in our sole discretion, terminate access to the Services, apply additional fees, or remove or delete User Content for those accounts that are found to be in violation of ZeoHost's terms and conditions.
Shared web hosting accounts are allowed to use a maximum of 2,50,000 inodes and 20-35 concurrent HTTP connections to the server. Managed Wordpress Hosting accounts has 4,50,000 inodes and 35-50 concurrent HTTP connections to the servers. Backups older than 30-days in a customer account may be removed from the server at our discretion. Complimentary Server Rewind for shared web hosting backups are limited to a 40GB quota. If you exceed 40GB of disk usage in your account, your account will no longer be backed up. Please download any cPanel backups and store them locally.
You are allocated a monthly bandwidth allowance. This allowance varies depending on the hosting package you purchase. Should your account pass the allocated amount we reserve the right to suspend the account until the start of the next allocation, suspend the account until more bandwidth is purchased at an additional fee, suspend the account until you upgrade to a higher level of package, terminate the account and/or charge you an additional fee for the overages. Unused transfer in one month cannot be carried over to the next month.
Word "UNMETERED BANDWIDTH" And “UNLIMITED BANDWIDTH” is assigned to very high bandwidth allocated hosting plans.
Where the user is able to use high bandwidth upto max 20TB/Month on fair usage policy (Only Applies to Shared, Reseller, virtual-private-servers Services). Once this Limitation is reached the service is automatically suspended. To reactivate the service, you need purchase Bandwidth Packages with respective fees allocated to the packages. Until then the service will be remained closed/suspended. Very High bandwidth users are suggested to upgrade their service to 100TB Dedicated Hosting or Unmetered Dedicated Hosting. Incase of any over usage of bandwidth ( More then 20TB ) client/reseller will be charged with $0.15 USD/GB. Should a client/reseller utilize or require large amounts of bandwidth, beyond the standard bandwidth allocation. ZeoHost may require a deposit.

Contract pricing customers will not be affected by any price change throughout the contract period. The amount you pay for hosting will never increase from the date of purchase.
ZeoHost strives to maintain a 100% Network and Server Uptime Service level.
This uptime percentage is a monthly figure, and is calculated solely by ZeoHost monitoring systems or ZeoHost authorized/contracted outside monitoring services. If ZeoHost fails to meet it's 100% uptime guarantee, and it is not due to one of the exceptions below, credits will be made available to each client, upon request, on a case by case basis. ZeoHost does not credit a full month's service for minor downtime. This would not be financially healthy for ZeoHost, and in turn would only negatively affect the service level ZeoHost provides to you. "Partial credit for partial downtime"is our standard policy. In extreme circumstances, ZeoHost may distribute full month credits, but this is dealt with on a case by case basis. Credits are issued for one months service only, never more.

|98% to 99%||5%|
|95% to 97.9%||10%|
