There’s no way to say exactly what can get your account suspended across every host, but there are some things that you can do that will cause most providers to suspend your account.

The most common reasons for account suspension are:

  • Exceeding your storage and bandwidth limits
  • Frequently using up lots of server resources (i.e.: CPU and memory)

Other causes for suspension are listed and include:

  • Spam email messages being sent from your account
  • Hosting or linking to material that infringes on the rights of a third party or any Federal, State or local laws
  • Hosting or linking to pornography, especially child pornography

There are usually few causes for an outright account termination, but two examples of possible grounds for termination are:

  • Attempting to gain unauthorized access to another customers account or files
  • Verbally or physically abusing or threatening the company’s employees

For specifics, you’ll need to as your hosting providers abuse, legal or support department or check their ACCEPTABLE USER POLICY, TERMS OF SERVICE and other legal agreements.
