Unmetered Traffic

How much bandwidth is included with my plan?

There are no set limits on the data transfer (bandwidth) that we provide in our web hosting plans. These resources are “unmetered”, meaning you are not billed according to the amount of bandwidth used and we will never charge extra fees for high bandwidth use.

We provide you with unmetered data transfer for your hosting account, so that you can host almost any kind of personal, small business and community website and grow freely to attract more and more visitors. We want you to have the resources you need to build a great online presence, and 99% of all customers will have more than enough disk space and bandwidth to meet their needs.

However, like all resources bandwidth is not infinite, so we monitor our shared servers for excessive use and abuse to ensure optimal performance for everyone. That being said, we do require all customers to be fully compliant with our Terms of service and utilize bandwidth in the normal operation of a personal or small business website. While it is rare, we may need to put constraints on accounts that are using resources beyond what would be expected in the normal operation of such website.

How do you determine “normal” operation for web hosting plans?

We regularly run customer bandwidth utilization through a series of statistical analyse and use the results of these studies to define normal. Although the actual results of these analyses vary from month to month, one thing remains constant: 99% of our customers fall into “normal” range. Typically, customers who fall outside the normal range are using their accounts for file storage or sharing rather than web hosting. Our shared hosting services are not intended to support these activities and we offer various plans that better address high bandwidth utilization. We strive to provide at least 48 hours notice to allow customers to make adjustments before we take any corrective action.

Important: Password Security Policies

The password is the single most common security measure for digital systems, both online and off-line. The problem is that it is becoming increasingly less secure as hackers gain more and more powerful tools to simply crack them. A great deal of attention has gone towards the creation of secure passwords, what constitutes them, and whether or not it is feasible to retain a bunch of random alphanumerical strings inside your head all the time.

How are passwords cracked?

Most accounts that have their passwords compromised are not done so by another human being directly. Instead a computer will be tasked with guessing your password, so planning should go in to understanding and then deterring a computer from cracking your password. A hacker has a variety of malicious tactics available to them when trying to crack your password. These would be the two most common attacks you see on the Internet today:

  • Brute Force Attack: The attacker runs a script that tries again and again to randomly crack your password by sheer brute force. A long password with multiple character sets is the best protection. The higher your password entropy the less likely your password will be compromised by a brute force attack.
  • Dictionary Attack: The attacker utilizes dictionaries of known words or passwords and a script to try them in thousands of combinations until one matches up with the correct password. Don’t use common words, or keystrokes such as anyone’s name or phone number. Use a combination of multiple character sets to reduce the likelyhood of multiple entries pulled for a dictionary matching up successfully.

In recent time, We have been working on having more security on our cPanel servers and have applied few new security policies.

Password Strength – An password of any kind must set to 80% strong at least. System will not accept your password until it matches the security policy. To setup an strong password, you can use Lowercase/Uppercase letter, signs/symbols and number.

Password Age – Passwords must be changed every 90 days. Our system will automatically ask user to change their password every 90 days.

These two measures should allow you to secure your cPanel and related services. In the meantime, if you have any questions about account security, please contact us at APT COM Support.

Found Right Hosting Company

I got online tonight to try and find a web hosting service that supported my applications as a developer. I was dreading this because I could of sworn it would take all night to find the right company. However, to my delight I found several stackoverflow answers and whoshostingthis.com both recommended APT COM Hosting. I got on and found your site so easy to navigate and found everything I needed. Atik H. was quick to get me taken care of and instead of redirecting me, created a custom link that got me set up in seconds. I couldn’t be happier with my service. 10/10 Atik H. and 10/10 APT COM Hosting!

Domain Renew Problem Solve

Just wanted to comment on Mira H’s help today. My domain renewal was coming up but I did not receive any instructions for renewal or billing. She found out that a proper bill had not been made on my account so it didn’t show up in My Subscriptions. She corrected the issue so that I was able to successfully renew before my expiration day (which was in the next couple of days!) I appreciate her effort, and actions to facilitate the issue for me. Thanks Mira! 🙂
