Agreement (SLA) which provides certain rights and remedies regarding the performance of the HostKNET network. The HostKNET Service Level Agreement (SLA) guarantees our
network/equipment reliability and performance. This Service Level Agreement (SLA) applies to customers of HostKNET's web hosting, reseller, dedicated server, co-location, ecommerce,
and Internet access services.

Uptime Guarantee: HostKNET strives to maintain a 99.999% network and service uptime level, and guarantees atleast 99.5%. This uptime percentage is a monthly figure, and is is
calculated solely by HostKNET monitoring systems or HostKNET authorized/contracted outside monitoring services. If HostKNET fails to meet it's 99.5% uptime guarantee, and it is
not due to one of the exceptions below, credits will be made available to each client, upon request, on a case by case basis. HostKNET does not credit a full month's service for minor
downtime. This would not be financially healthy for HostKNET, and in turn would only negatively affect the service level HostKNET provides to you. "Partial refunds for partial
downtime" is our standard policy. In extreme circumstances, HostKNET may distribute full month credits, but this is dealt with on a case by case basis. Details on how credit amounts
are calculated can be found below.

Exceptions: Customer shall not receive any credits under this SLA in connection with any failure or deficiency of the HostKNET network caused by or associated with:
• Circumstances beyond reasonable control, including, without limitation, acts of any governmental body, war, insurrection, sabotage, embargo, "Acts of God" (ie...fire, flood,
earthquake, tornado, etc...), strike or other labor disturbance, interruption of or delay in transportation, unavailability of or interruption or delay in telecommunications or third
party services, failure of third party software or inability to obtain raw materials, supplies, or power used in or equipment needed for provision of the Service Level
• Telco Failure (ie...a backhoe cutting a fiber line somewhere)
• Backbone peering point issues (ie...Level3™ having a router go down in Virginia that wipes out Internet service a portion of the entire East Coast)
• Scheduled maintenance for hardware/software upgrades
• Hardware failure (faulty hardware is rare, but cannot be predicted nor avoided). HostKNET utilizes only name brand hardware of the highest quality and performance.
• Software bugs/flaws (Exploits and bugs may develop that cause security issues or downtime)
• DNS issues not within the direct control of HostKNET
• Network floods, hacks, attacks from outside parties or individuals
• Failure or error of any HostKNET monitoring or measurement system
• Weather which may affect perfomance of wireless access equipment performance.
• Client's acts or omissions, including without limitation, any negligence, willful misconduct, or use of HostKNET service(s) in breach of HostKNET Policy and Service
Guidelines (AUP), by Client or others authorized by Client.

Connectivity: HostKNET's goal is to make the HostKNET network available to Clients, free of outages, as best possible. An "outage" is defined as an instance in which Client is unable
to transmit and receive IP packets due to a HostKNET service failure for more than 15 consecutive minutes, excluding service failures relating to HostKNET's scheduled maintenance
and upgrades. The HostKNET network does not include client premises equipment or any Telco access facilities connecting Client's premises to such infrastructure. HostKNET's™ goal
is to keep Average Round-Trip Latency on the HostKNET network to 85 milliseconds or less. HostKNET defines "Average Round-Trip Latency", with respect to a given month, as the
average time required for round-trip packet transfers between the HostKNET network and major US backbone peering points during such month, as measured by HostKNET.
HostKNET's™ goal is to keep Average Packet Loss on the HostKNET network to 1% or less. HostKNET defines "Average Packet Loss", with respect to a given month, as the average
percentage of IP packets transmitted on the HostKNET network during such month that are not successfully delivered, as measured by HostKNET.
Measurement: HostKNET will periodically (on average every 5 minutes) monitor HostKNET network and server availability using software and hardware components capable of
measuring application traffic and responses. Client acknowledges that that such measurements may not measure the exact path traversed by Client's Internet connection, and that
such measurements constitute measurements across the HostKNET network but not other networks to which Client may connect. HostKNET reserves the right to periodically change
the measurement points and methodologies it uses without notice to Client. Full network and server reporting will be posted to a location designated by HostKNET and made available
to Client.

Hardware Failure: HostKNET stands behind all equipment on our network. Faulty hardware is rare, but cannot be predicted nor avoided. HostKNET utilizes only name brand hardware
of the highest quality and perfomance. HostKNET will replace all faulty hardware affecting performance levels of equipment within 48 hours, which includes hardware issues that cause
server crashes or speed issues. Hardware failure resulting in complete network/server outage/downtime will be corrected within two hours of problem identification. Router failure is an
exception to this SLA guarantee, and may require on-site Cisco™ engineers or backbone provider emergency personnel to correct the problem. Router failure is governed by current
HostKNET contracts with Cisco™ and backbone providers in regard to the emergency repair service in case of such an issue. Software re-installation and data replacement after
server failure, will be completed with 10 hours of of problem identification. HostKNET will replace all faulty hardware on dedicated servers (rented or leased servers), at no charge to
the Client, with an unlimited free replacement policy. This includes parts ordered as upgrades. HostKNET will replace all faulty hardware on all non-purchased dedicated and wireless
access customer premise equipment, at no charge to the Client, unless equipment has been tampered with, or damage is caused by direct neglect/action(s) of Client.

Credits: Credit requests must be made on the HostKNET web site, by filling out the "Service Level Agreement (SLA) Request" form. Each request in connection with network/server
outages/downtime must be received by HostKNET within five days of the occurrence. Each request in connection with Average Round-Trip Latency or Average Packet Loss in a
calendar month must be received by HostKNET within five days after the end of such month. The total amount credited to a Client for HostKNET not meeting SLA service levels will
not exceed the service fees paid by Client HostKNET for such services for the period in question. Each validly requested credit will be applied to a Client invoice within 30 days after
HostKNET's receipt of such request. Credits are exclusive of any applicable taxes charged to Client or collected by HostKNET. Upon Client's request (in accordance with the
procedure set forth below), HostKNET will issue a credit to Client for network/server outages/downtime occurring during any calendar month that are reported by Client to HostKNET
and confirmed by HostKNET's measurement reporting. Such credit will be equal to one day's worth (1/30th) of the monthly fees paid by Client, (for all service fees paid if network
outage, or specific affected service fees paid if individual server downtime) multiplied by each hour (or portion thereof rounded to nearest next hour) of the cumulative duration of such
outage/downtime. If Average Round-Trip Latency on the HostKNET network for a calendar month exceeds 85 milliseconds, then upon Client's request, HostKNET will issue a credit to
Client equal to six day's worth (1/5th) of the monthly service fees paid by Client for such month. If Average Packet Loss exceeds 1% during a calendar month, then upon Client's
request, HostKNET will issue a credit to Client equal to five day's worth (1/5th) of the monthly service fees paid by Client for such month.

General: HostKNET reserves the right to change or modify this SLA to benefit the Client, and will post changes to location currently housing this SLA at time of modification, which will
be made available to Client. Except as set forth in this SLA, HostKNET makes no claims regarding the availability or performance of the HostKNET network or servers. Specific terms/
points of this SLA may be adjusted on a case by case basis by the specific Service Agreement signed/agreed by client. In case of difference terms/points in SLA and Service
Agreement, the Service Agreement terms/points prevail over this general SLA policy. The Service Agreement signed/agree client, is above and beyond this SLA, and Service
Agreement terms are in affect, including, but not limited to, limitations of liability.



This Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) applies to all individuals, businesses, organizations, resellers, and end-clients (collectively, "users") employing any HostKNET services, hardware, property or other products.
Use of HostKNET resources constitutes acceptance of all policies in effect at the time of use. Modification to this policy may be made at any time and will be immediately effective upon
posted changes.

HostKNET reserves the right to protect its resources, users, and reputation from any activity deemed damaging, offensive or abusive. To this measure, HostKNET will act as sole
arbiter in determining violations of this policy.
Provisions: Use of HostKNET services indicates the acknowledgment that:
• Users are responsible for the security of accounts, systems, passwords, etc...and will not hold HostKNET liable for any loss or damages caused by exploitation or any other
misuse of HostKNET resources.
• HostKNET is not responsible for any damages, anticipated or otherwise, caused by viewing materials, links, or other content posted to systems on the local network or linked via
this network. All users agree to indemnify HostKNET from any claims resulting from any use of its services.
• Adult content is sanctioned by applicable local and federal governments/laws. Legal adult content is permitted on all HostKNET product lines. The viewing, downloading, or
possession of legal adult content by HostKNET users and other Internet viewers, is not governed by HostKNET policy, and is left to the discretion of individuals requesting this
• HostKNET may monitor its network and audit systems for any data or activity indicating potential policy violations.
• HostKNET reserves the right to remove any account without prior notice. If HostKNET deactivates an account due to the direct or indirect participation of users engaging in illicit
activities, any rights to a refund are forfeited by the client/reseller in control of the account at the time of the violation. Furthermore, no refunds for advance payments will be
granted for deactivated accounts. Critical offenses and involvement in illegal activity will negate any perceived obligation of HostKNET to return data.

Abusive Clientele: HostKNET may, at its discretion, suspend or terminate the service of any client/reseller who is financially delinquent, abusive/harassing to HostKNET personnel, or
causes general disruption to the operation of the company and service of its users. Examples of such activity include, but are not limited to:
• verbal or written abuse of HostKNET personnel (obscene language, threats, etc.)
• excessive complaints or persistent disregard for alerts, warnings, and/or notices
• repeated reactivation of abusive users
• consistent errors or administrative changes causing unnecessary workload
• spamming HostKNET email addresses, ticket systems, and/or servers
• frequent late or bounced payments
• issuing chargebacks
• public harassment or derogatory/false/exaggerated forum/discussion group postings

Abuse of HostKNET Systems and Resources: Any damaging or abusive activity, whether unlawful or considered to be detrimental to the operations of HostKNET resources, is a
violation of this policy. Any attempt to harm equipment owned by HostKNET, or hosted in its facilities, is strictly prohibited. Violations will result in legal action, to the fullest allowable

Illegal Usage Restrictions: Resources provided by HostKNET may be used only for lawful purposes. Examples of unlawful content include, but are not limited to:
• unlicensed hosting of, linking to, or any involvement in the transmission of copyrighted media, applications, published works, or any data protected by trade secret, without sufficient
rights to engage in this activity
• child pornography and/or kidnapping material
• content deemed to be terroristic in nature
• material posted to incite violence
• violations of human and animal rights, including the display of acts of cruelty and other abuse
• pyramid/ponzi schemes
• fraudulent sites and other forms of "phishing" (emails/forms/sites used to gather personal information from unsuspecting individuals)
• cracking programs and/or key generators
• violations of import/export restrictions

Prohibited Usage Restrictions: In addition to activities governed by law, HostKNET strictly prohibits:
• IRC and associated applications (including bouncers, "bots", etc.)
• malware (malicious software) and/or botnets
• automation tools, auto typers, macros and bots used to circumvent restrictions on games or other applications (e.g. RuneScape bots)
• network and systems abuse scripts
• circumvention of and/or provision of instructions to circumvent security measures
• unnecessary port scans
• threatening, harassing, or obscene content
• anonymizers/proxies without password protection and sufficient logging (including open mail proxies, anonymous web surfing proxies)
• proxy detection scripts
• unsolicited and/or mass advertising via forums, blogs, comment forms, and newsgroups
• mail bombing, email address harvesting, and/or unsolicited email (including bulk mail sent to unconfirmed recipients and individual unsolicited advertisement or link exchange
• HYIPs (high-yield investment programs)
• excessive overutilization of resource limits
• evasion of bans or blacklistings by changing domains/IPs

*** Links to unacceptable content are also prohibited.

Bulk Email & Blacklisting: HostKNET understands that bulk email is an important mechanism for keeping people informed. However, spamming from the HostKNET network, and
spamvertising (unsolicited advertising of) sites hosted on the HostKNET network, is prohibited. Legitimate bulk email meets the following criteria:
• ALL recipients have confirmed willingness to be added to a distribution list by clicking on confirmation links or (preferably) by responding to verification emails.
• Distributed messages include valid headers, removal instructions, and information on the method by which the subscribed addresses were obtained.
The usage of partially confirmed recipient lists is not allowed. All bulk email senders must post privacy policies and must be clearly identified to recipients during the subscription and
confirmation process. The usage of third-party distribution lists is prohibited. If HostKNET approaches a client for evidence of confirmation, the request must be honored within 48
hours of the initial spam alert. Deactivation of an account or service may be required, until proof of confirmation is provided and approved. HostKNET reserves the right to require
termination of any services involved in the transmission of unsolicited email. If any activities lead to blacklisting, the involved client/reseller may be charged an abuse fee of $100.00.
Policy Violations: Storage, presentation, or transmission of any material in violation of any laws, or otherwise prohibited by HostKNET, is cause for temporary account deactivation,
server/service termination, or complete cancellation of all account services. The HostKNET Abuse Dept will make an attempt to contact the involved client via email when the first sign
of a possible violation is noted. This notification may occur before or after a service is disabled. Alerts are provided as a courtesy. Prompt responses to alerts are required. When an
alert is sent, the designated abuse contact is responsible for acknowledging his/her understanding of the offense and providing an adequate response, to the satisfaction of HostKNET,
within 24 hours of the notice. Failure to sufficiently respond to an abuse alert will lead to suspension of any active services involved in abusive activity and will result in a $50.00 fee. If
reactivation is warranted, all abuse fees and any outstanding service fees must be paid prior to service being reactivated. Repeated abuse and/or failure to respond to abuse alerts will
result in service termination.

Note: It is extremely important to ensure that the abuse email address on record is valid and monitored at all times. This is the address used for abuse notifications and warnings. The
address may be set within the client management interface.

Direct clients/resellers are fully responsible for any activity found to originate from products and/or services under their care. In any case involving unauthorized parties utilizing a Burst-
NET service for abuse, the direct client/reseller is responsible for locating and stopping all affected applications, until the source of the problem is found and removed. HostKNET may
opt to disable all services until the client can perform such an investigation or the system can be secured or reinstalled. If the support of HostKNET is required for the investigation, the
client agrees to compensate HostKNET at a rate of $65 USD/hour for such service. Reinstallations are performed at a flat-rate of $25 USD (which does not include any operating
system changes or licensing costs). Direct clients/resellers are responsible for maintaining secure systems. This includes, but is not limited to:
• requesting kernel updates
• applying application patches
HostKNET will not be responsible for securing dedicated servers, virtual private servers, user accounts/web sites, or third-party applications. Direct clients/resellers with fully managed
support services, may be entitled to a higher level of support than clientele with basic management. Further details may be found in the HostKNET Managed Services Definition and
Backup Policy.

Resource Usage: Resource usage should be maintained within levels outlined in product descriptions and/or service contracts. Abuse caused by users or unauthorized parties may
increase resource usage and lead to overage fees. Overage fees apply to any service utilizing more than its assigned bandwidth allocation, except for services advertised/sold as
"UNMETERED". Overages will be calculated based on overall amount of GigaBytes (GB) transferred in a monthly period, unless a service is sold based on Megabits per Second
(MBPS). Services sold by MBPS, will be calculated via the industry standard 95% method, unless otherwise specified in the service agreement contract. MRTG or other bandwidth
reports are available, upon request. Bandwidth is supplied from a shared pool and is not supplied as guaranteed/dedicated bandwidth, unless advertised as such specifically. Burstable
usage of the UNMETERED service/port is permitted. However, a service that has heavy sustained usage may have its port capped and the client/reseller associated with the service
may be required to upgrade to a dedicated service plan. UNMETERED service is supplied on a "best-effort" basis, which may result in some slowdowns during peak traffic periods.
Should a client/reseller utilize or require large amounts of bandwidth, beyond the standard bandwidth allocation, HostKNET may require a deposit.

Port Usage: Basic Dedicated & Co-Located servers are installed on 100MBPS unthrottled ports, unless service is sold with a specified port size (ie. 10MBPS UNMETERED) or specified/
requested as a "capped" port. HostKNET reserves the right to monitor network usage and throttle the available speed (if a service significantly exceeds average usage) to conserve
network resources and to prevent any large billing anomalies. This will generally not include short spikes in usage, but will include, and not be limited to, sustained transfers of
significantly larger than average amounts of bandwidth. If, at any time, a client's or reseller's data transfer rate affects other HostKNET clientele, HostKNET reserves the right to throttle
and/or disconnect the service at the source of the problem.

Filtering: HostKNET reserves the right to block, filter, or throttle ports and/or IP address ranges. For example, this may include blocking Port 6667 (IRC), denying access from a known
spammer's IP address range, or limiting the speed of point-to-point file-sharing programs (Kazaa, Limewire, eDonkey, etc...). This may also include prioritization of certain traffic types,
such as Voice-over-IP (VOIP) phone call transmissions.

Virtual Hosting: HostKNET is pleased to offer unlimited traffic/hits and server usage to Virtual Hosting clientele. "Unlimited traffic/hits" refers to the number of visitors to a website and
NOT the total amount of bandwidth/data transfer. Each Virtual Hosting account is still limited to the bandwidth/data transfer included with its associated service/package. To maintain
the integrity of our service, the following usage may be limited/disallowed on Virtual Hosting service:
• banner, graphic, or CGI scripts running from the service and/or being utilized on other domains/websites
• large graphic or download archives/galleries
• large chat room gatherings
If you do not qualify for unlimited traffic/hits, your account may be required to be upgraded. To reduce the load on a server, HostKNET reserves the right to relocate any site to a different
server and/or IP address.

Virtual Private Servers (VPS): To maintain the integrity of HostKNET services, any VPS (virtual private server) utilizing heavy amounts of system resources may be temporarily disabled.
When necessary, clients/resellers may be required to upgrade the service package to accommodate actual usage. Additionally, to reduce the load on servers, HostKNET may
relocate virtual private server containers to different nodes and/or IP addresses.

Internet Access: HostKNET does not allow multiple dial-in connections on a single dial-up access account. Multiple computers/networks are permitted to a single HostKNET Internet
Access service. Internet Access clientele are responsible for maintaining/securing their computer systems. Should any system become infected with a virus and/or spyware which
causes or threatens harm to the HostKNET network, HostKNET may suspend service until the source of the problem is found and corrected.

Backup Service: To maintain the integrity of backup services, HostKNET may relocate any backup service to a different server and/or IP address in an effort to reduce the load on the
current hosting server. Download/FTP sites, web-serving (httpd), and/or any usage that results in heavy upstream/outgoing bandwidth consumption (beyond that of normal backup
operations) is not permitted on the backup service machines. This service is meant for the backup/restore/sharing/storing of data and not for usage normally performed by web/
database servers.

Idle Timeouts: HostKNET may disconnect any idle connection to the network. Average timeouts are:
FTP - 300 seconds
Dial-Up - 10-15 minutes
Telnet/SSH - 2 hours
