DoS and DDoS attacks
If your VPS is the initiator or the target of a DoS attack or DDoS attack which adversely affects our, or someone else's, network, we reserve the right to terminate your account without notice and you will be held responsible for any charges that may result from this action.
Activities that attract denial of service attacks are expressly prohibited. Customers involved in these activities will have their services terminated as soon as we are aware of them. This prohibition is for the protection of our customer base as a whole; these kinds of services tend to attract attacks that have the potential to degrade service for all of our customers.
Daily.co.uk will cooperate fully with investigations of violations of systems or network security at other sites, including cooperating with law enforcement authorities in the investigation of suspected criminal violations. Users who violate systems or network security may incur criminal or civil liability. Daily.co.uk reserves the right to charge up to £500 per complaint to investigate.
If your VPS IP address is blacklisted as a result of your activities, Daily.co.uk reserves the right to make an administration charge of £100 upon cancellation of your VPS.
