Disk Space Usage
Website Disk Space: Client may occupy only the amount of disk space on the Clanplanet Network Server that is allotted by Clanplanets Network. Additional fees, specified in the hosting plans, will be charged for exceeding the disk space. Disk space measurement includes all customer content and generated content from their web site and includes but is not limited to MySQL or other database data, Mailing List data and website data. Clanplanet Network is not responsible for measurements provided by individual control panel software, which is 3rd party software not controlled by Clanplanet Network, which may or may not include all of the customer data in their measurements.
Game Server Disk Space: Clanplanet Network does not impose any specified limit on file sizes which can be uploaded however all files which are uploaded to your game server must only be 'modifications' to the game process itself. Your game server disk space must not be used to host any files other than those which affect your game server process. If any files which are uploaded are deemed by Clanplanet Network to adversely affect performance of the overall hadware you may be asked to remove the file from use.
Dedicated Server Disk Space: The Disk Drive and/or Disk Space Quota for these accounts is hard quota based and clients have full access and rights to the disk space. Available disk space for the Client excludes the space required for the Operating System, Control Panel and other Services that come with the server set up which is selected by the client. Client has full control of all disk space for these accounts and may remove, delete and/or alter the installed files and configurations. However, removing, altering or deleting the files and base configurations installed by Clanplanet Network and/or in the case of the Control Panels, is not part of the 3rd party software released packages, patches, fixes and or upgrades, places all software support for that account/server into a fee based category. Refer to our Support Policy for details regarding free versus fee based support.
Game Servers: Client agrees to display on their server name the prefix 'Clanplanet.co.uk :: ' on a servers name or hostname which are based in the United Kingdom or 'Clanplanet.us :: ' on servers based in the USA.

Client agrees not to edit the number of available player slots to a higher value than is permitted by Clanplanet Network when the game server was purchased. Clanplanet Network reserves the right to charge a fee for exceeding the agreed number of player slots at a rate of 5.00 (£ GBP) plus 2.00 (£ GBP) for each player slot above the agreed limit. Client agrees that no more than 4 (four) bots are allowed at any one time. A bot is defined as a non-human player that uses up one user slot. This includes but is not limited to: bot players, proxy slots (sourcetv), etc.
Automatic Setup: Client agrees that the 'automatic setup' advertised on some services such as Voice Servers and some types of Game Servers is not a guarantee that services will be set up instantaneously nor that the setup will be error free.
