What Is Certified Protection?

By CertifiedHosting 03/08/2010

Certified Protection is an add-on available exclusively to Certified Hosting's shared hosting clients.

WHAT IS CERTIFIED PROTECTION?
It's like an insurance policy. Just like all types of insurance, you may or may not ever have to use it, but it's there just in case. It's peace of mind. It's knowing that if for some reason your hosting account should utilize above accepted levels of server resources, your account will NEVER BE SUSPENDED!

Many web hosting companies now offer UNLIMITED Space and UNLIMITED Bandwidth, but what they are not offering is unlimited server resources. Unless you read the TOS, you are probably unaware of your hosts' TOS policies and what will cause your account to be shut down. The most common reason hosting accounts get suspended from popular web hosts is because the account has violated the hosts' TOS by utilizing too many system resources. In many cases, the hosting company does not help the account holder to determine the cause of the issues and since the account is suspended you have no way to make any corrections or changes.
Certified Hosting, like our competitors, offers UNLIMTED Space and UNLIMITED Bandwidth. While we do not offer unlimited system resources, we do offer a better alternative than just suspending accounts. We give you the option of adding some security to your account, through Certified Protection.

HOW DOES CERTIFIED PROTECTION WORK?
When you order a hosting account from Certified Hosting, you will have the option of adding on Certified Protection. For an additional $4.95 per month your account will be insured against suspension.

WHEN DOES CERTIFIED PROTECTION KICK IN?
If your account is found to be using more than acceptable server resources, you will be notified and your account will be moved to a "holding server". This is a fully functional cPanel server with no more than four active accounts. You will be able to remain on the holding server for 15 days. During this time you will be working with our support team to determine the reason your website has high usage and together make necessary changes to your website so that it is able to go back to a virtual shared hosting environment.
Note: There will be a short amount of downtime during the move from your shared server to the holding server.

WHAT HAPPENS IF MY ACCOUNT CAN'T GO BACK TO A SHARED SERVER?
If it is determined that your account simply is not suitable for shared hosting, then we will recommend that your account be moved to a managed dedicated server. However, because you have our Certified Protection plan, all of the Protection premiums you paid will be credited towards your new dedicated server!
