The new dedicated server contract
07-31-2013, 10:24 AM
Suite aux feedbacks de nos clients, et dans une
ambiance de paranoïa généralisé, nous avons précisé
2 clauses du nouveau contrat pour les rendre aussi
claires que possible:

1) Les limitations liées au KS 2013

La gamme Kimsufi 2013 est réservée aux personnes physique
ou morale domiciliées en Union Européenne, Norvège et
Suisse uniquement. Le Client ne peut disposer de plus de
trois serveurs de la gamme kimsufi 2013 simultanément.

La gamme de serveur Kimsufi 2013 est strictement réservée
à un usage personnel, toute souscription de cette gamme à
des fins de revente, est interdite et entraînera la résiliation
immédiate du contrat de location due ou des Serveur(s) concernés.

Dans le cadre de l'offre Kimsufi, le Client est informé
qu'il dispose, en lieu et place du Support Technique tel
que défini à l'Article 3, d'un forum d'assistance accessible
via l'adresse :

2) Nous avons précisé le cadre d'utilisation de
Proxy, IRC, VPN et TOR.

7.4 Pour des raisons de sécurité, OVH se réserve la possibilité
de procéder à la suspension immédiate et sans préavis de tout
Serveur sur lequel serait proposé à titre gracieux ou onéreux,
un service ouvert au public de Proxy, IRC, VPN, TOR, pour lequel
OVH aurait connaissance d'une utilisation malveillante, frauduleuse
ou illicite.

Merci pour les feedbacks.

We are updating the special conditions for dedicated servers to change the rules of use:

1- Since the introduction of anti-DDoS protection, we allow the hosting of camfrog servers on our network. We have the infrastructure to cope with these attacks whatever their sizes, types or durations. In contrast for the last few months we have had several legal matters related to the use of multiple TOR networks for paedophilia and we are now banning it as well as all anonymity systems. This increases fraudulent use of our network and number of legal requisition each month.

=> Consequence on the contract: Article 5.4 evolves.

2- We evolve ways and tools to fight against spams generated by our network. We are working on a system that blocks a spamming IP before it sends too many spams and it gets blacklisted. The work will take a few more weeks, but the contract already explains what we will do, how and when.

=> Consequence on the contract:
- Deleting provisions related to spam in Article 5.2 of the General terms and conditions
- New article 7: Measures to fight against sending spam from the OVH network

3- We have upgraded our network to 5Tbps and we have changed our bandwidth limitations per server.

=> Consequence on the contract: Deleting old Article about the bandwidth

4- Protections against attacks will be free and in BETA. The anti-DDoS service allows you to protect and improve the availability of your infrastructure.

=> Consequence on the contract: New Article 8: Mitigation (measures against the dos and ddos ​​attacks)

5- The new KS range offers personal servers. As such, resale is forbidden and there is a limitation of 3 servers per physical or legal person. For this type of use, there is no need of more such servers, otherwise the customer has to upgrade to the SP range which is now particularly accessible. Also, KS is exclusively for residents of the EU only. For all other countries, ie outside Europe, we offer SP / EG / MG / HG.

=> Consequence on the contract: Amendment article 3.4 related to Kimsufi range to add the interdiction of resale and that it is limited to EU residents only.

More information: (IE contract not ready yet, it should be implemented by the end of August)

When logging to the manager, you will be asked to validate the new conditions, and the differences between the new and the previous contract will be displayed. The old contract will either run until the renewal date of your server and you will have to accept the new contract when you will renew it or when you log into your manager.

These measures are in place to avoid abuse, which may affect the offer for technical or economic reasons.

Best wishes,
