We just came across the pool of users you’ve apparently been using for
SSH proxies. Our Terms of Service forbids the usage of our servers for
traffic proxying and as such I must warn you that furthered use of our
services for this purpose will result in account termination. If you are
found to be proxying traffic through us in the future, we will
immediately disable your entire account.
Servers are shared with other customers, and as such IRC-related activities or severely CPU intensive CGI scripts (e.g. chat scripts, scripts which have bugs causing them to not close properly after being run, etc.) are not encouraged. Any application that listens for inbound network connections (even if the application would otherwise be allowed) are not permitted. BitTorrent clients, proxy servers/scripts, IRC bots and bouncers (BNC) specifically may not be run on any DreamHost Web Hosting server. If your processes are adversely affecting server performance disproportionately DreamHost Web Hosting reserves the right to negotiate additional charges with the Customer and/or the discontinuation of the offending processes.
