While you can find information over the Internet on nearly any type
of topic, there are subject areas that could be deemed inappropriate
or objectionable to a number of different audiences. While
Dixiehost.com does not express an opinion on whether specific information
should be or should not be be available over the Internet, we do
feel strongly that there are subject areas we do not want to represent
through our web service. As such, the following acceptable
use policies have been established for web sites hosted on Dixiehost.com web servers:

"Bulk Mail" sent to persons who have otherwise not requested

of any portion of Dixiehost.com's resources. For customers

every year. Any information or software that promotes
or supports the distribution of computer viruses over the Internet
is prohibited on Dixiehost.com's web service.
6. COMPUTER HACKING
Computer hacking is an activity that focuses on breaking into other
computers or damaging them in such a way as to render them inoperable. In
severe cases it can result in the complete destruction of the data
stored on the computers that have been compromised during the attack. If
the data that is destroyed belongs to a computer that controls one
of more networks, then those networks will fail too. Because
hacking can have such a detrimental effect on a large number of
users, Dixiehost.com prohibits web sites on our service that promote
software and information used for computer hacking.
7. PROMOTION USING SPAM
You can sell things from your web site, and you are welcome to advertise
your web page, but you may not use unsolicited commercial e-mail

from sites that are promoted using spam. Dixiehost.com

You are not allowed to promote activities that are illegal according
to United States federal statutes or Maryland statutes. This
includes anything to do with making bombs, manufacturing drugs,
hacking phone systems ("phreaking"), breaking into
buildings and cars, and other illegal activities.
