Email Restrictions & Bulk Emailing:

ERB-1: Each email account that is connected to your account, by default is limited to sending no more than 250 emails per hour, so if you have a mailing list, you will need to bare this in mind. If you send over this amount in any hour, the e-mails will bounce back with an undeliverable error, letting you know you have exceeded the sending limit. If this occurs, it will then take some time for your account to be able to send again, even a single email, so we recommend waiting at least 1 hour after this issue occurs to begin sending email again.

Any mailing list larger than 5,000 email addresses will require a dedicated server or special solution from us. Please note that dividing one large list into smaller lists to get below this limit is not allowed. We can detect this and stop it. The reason we put these limits in place, is to help prevent spamming, and also to help with the overall performance of the servers.

These limits are in place for a reason, and unfortunately we will not raise them for any site that we host. Sending in excess of 250 emails per hour, does not fall under what most people call normal usage, over 250 per hour is classed as sending bulk email which we do not support on shared hosting accounts. A limit of 250 emails per hour does sound small, but it is the industry standard and still permits you to send 6000 emails per 24 hours, or 180,000 emails per month. As well as this restriction, we also restrict the total number of BCC and CC recipients you can add to any one message to a total of 50 recipients.



Third Party Contact:

TPC-1: Should an end user of a domain name that is the registered legel ownwer make contact with NameHOG with regards to their domain(s), we will always point you in the direction of NameHOG reseller that you purchased the domain name from. We appreciate that we have a legal obligation to act responsibly to the registrant, but also at the same time, we have a responsibility to act appropriately to our own clients. We cannot just change, remove or transfer domains on customers accounts without discussing it with them or giving them notice. Should one of our resellers customer (third party contact) get in touch with us and request the transfer of a domain name, we as stated previously will always refer you back to the NameHOG customer / account holder.


TPC-2:In the even that you are unable to contact the NameHOG reseller / account holder for a maximum of 28 consecutive days, we will take instruction from the legal registered owner of the domain name. This gives NameHOG, and yourself an opportunity to contact the reseller / account holder to resolve the issue with them direct. Once NameHOG are happy that their is no monies owing on the resellers account in connection with the domain name, we will act immediately on your instruction. Unfortunately until 28 days has past from the point of which you have requested us to contact the client, we will not be able to help you. If contact is unsuccessful and we are able to act on your instruction, you will still be bound as the registrant, to the terms of the NameHOG agreement.


TPC-3:In the event that a NameHOG reseller has ceased trading and this can easily be proved, or the NameHOG account holder has deceased, we will act immediately on your instructions once we have verified your identity. However, we will still only act within the terms of the NameHOG agreement.
