Change in Backup policy for our Unlimited Hosting Packages

We will be limiting the Back up feature on existing Linux ULTIMATE Unlimited Hosting Packages that are using the old infrastructure (not cPanel) from the 12th of May, 2010. As per the new limit, we will only store the last three back ups made for any existing package.
Current Scenario:
Currently, a Customer can make unlimited back ups of their packages and they are all stored on our servers.
This negatively affects our servers as it leads to:
  • Additional and unnecessary load
  • Exposure to potential abuse
New Implementation:
Through the new implementation, Customers will still be able to make back ups as frequently as required. However, only the last three back ups will be stored on our servers. Every time a new back up is made, the oldest back up will be replaced.
This implementation will be applicable from the 12th of May, 2010.
Important: Starting today, all new Back up Policies will be limited as per the new implementation of storing only three back ups.
If you require your previous back ups:
If you require old back ups, which are older than the last three made, they will need to download the back ups to their local machines before the 12th of May, 2010.

Thank you!
