Suspension Policy

There are a number of reasons why we might suspend you. To keep your account active, and avoid suspension, make sure you follow our simple requirements.

Inactivity Policy

To ensure that old, unused HelioHost accounts are not filling up our server with useless data, we have an inactivity policy in place which will suspend you if you do not login to or at least once every 30 days. Each time you login, your last login date is set to the current time, so your account will then remain active for another 30 days.

If your account is to be suspended due to inactivity, you will receive an email warning you that you must login soon. You will also receive an email when your account is suspended, and is queued for deletion.

To activate a suspended account which was suspended due to inactivity, go to

If you receive an inactivity email even though you have logged into Plesk recently, then you might be logged into Plesk using a faulty URL. To ensure that your logins are logged, login at or at least once a month.

Terms of Service

At HelioHost, we have a Terms of Service which all members are required to follow. If you break the Terms of Service, then you will be permanently suspended.

High Server Usage

To ensure that every site on HelioHost is not slowed down by just one site hogging the server resources, we enforce a High Server Usage policy on all websites, which ensures that no website increases the server load in a massive scale. On Johnny and Tommy we enforce a memory limit of no more than 100 GB, and a CPU limit of 10,000 per day. If you exceed those amounts you will get suspended. You can monitor your load numbers on the load page within your dashboard.

Cron Job Limit

To ensure that your site does not increase the server load significantly, we have a cron job limit which states that you can only run 2 jobs per day. Remember that it is two runs (eg. One cron job, Runs twice a day) not two separate jobs (eg. Two cron jobs, Each runs twenty times a day). If you are caught going over this limit, your account will be permanently suspended.

Duplicate Accounts

On HelioHost, each person/user is only allowed one account on HelioHost. If you require more than one website, then many features of another HelioHost account are already possible with your current account - read up on Parked, Addon and Sub Domains for more information on how to make multiple websites on one account.

If you are caught with two or more accounts, you will be asked which one(s) you would like to be deleted, and if you do not reply we will permanently suspend all of them.

Further Information

If you have been suspended for something, and the renew script doesn't work, and you're not sure why or what for, then please don't hesitate to post in the Customer Service forum on HelioNet, making sure to provide your domain name, username, and server name up front so we can provide you with the best and most efficient support.
