- Definition of Unlimited Usage
What “Unlimited” means: Sasquatch Servers does not set an arbitrary limit on the amount of bandwidth or disk space an account can use.

Reselling any of the Service’s resources is strictly prohibited. Any accounts found to be reselling resources will immediately be suspended, with or without notice.
Sasquatch Servers “Unlimited” services are provisioned in a shared hosting environment. Any account found to be adversely affecting the performance of other Subscriber accounts by excessively using network bandwidth, server storage, memory or CPU resources, will be flagged by SasquatchServers.com administrators and anti-abuse controls. These Clients will then be asked to consider purchasing more resources or removing offending mods. Serious offenses will result in the account service suspension or termination, with or without notice.
