Adult Site Policy

Go Back

Because the Internet is a global communication tool, and we have clients from nearly every country in the world it is difficult to dictate what is considered "adult material". However, it is not our function to discriminate against those who choose to utilize adult content or adult related material. This being said, there are still several reasons why ITS Group Information Technology has been forced to create its no adult sites policy for its virtual server users.

What does ITS Group Information Technology consider "Adult Material?"

  1. Any site whose revenue is gained in part or whole from its adult content.
  2. Photos or videos showing nudity of men or women for non-scientific or non-artistic purposes.
  3. Revenue-generating hyperlinks to sites who violate policy #1.

Why does ITS Group Information Technology have this policy?

Bandwidth and Resources
A virtual server is a shared environment where many servers reside on each particular machine. This being said, consider that an average "adult site" gets more hits than 100 standard web sites. Some of the smaller adult sites get around 5 GB of transfer per day. With these types of resources being utilized, our servers would be severely slowed if we allowed these high traffic sites to also reside on our servers. On top of that, we would be forced to raise our prices to pay for the additional bandwidth. We strive to keep our servers fast and inexpensive, and our bandwidth clear; therefore, adult sites are not an option.

Also, our research has proved that most businesses do not wish to host their site with a company who also hosts pornography-related sites - whether or not the site is on the same server or on its own dedicated server. We wish to project a professional image, and it is difficult to do so if we host these types of sites. We believe that to have your site affiliated with, or on the same servers as, adult sites could lead potential prospects away from your business. As a result, we will not host adult sites because it may endanger the majority of our clients.
