If you choose a lower plan, the number of outgoing email limits may vary. Shared customers are allowed to send up to 100 outgoing emails per hour, reseller users up to 25 emails per hour, and VPS/cloud customers up to 1000 outgoing emails per hour. Customers with dedicated servers may send 3000 emails per hour.

Therefore, it is essential that you take full responsibility for backing up your data and understand the risks involved in potential data loss.
As a user of BengalWebHosting, you acknowledge and agree that we cannot be held responsible for any loss of data under any circumstances.
For clients who have subscribed to our paid backup service with shared and reseller hosting plans, we offer daily backups of databases with a retention period of 7 days. Weekly website backups are also performed with a retention period of 1 day. Please note that any backups maintained by BengalWebHosting will not include emails or media files.
Clients using the cPanel Backup Manager tool are required to download their backups from the server and delete them. Every Sunday, all backup files on the server are automatically removed without prior notification. It is important to note that you are not allowed to use the hosting space to store backups.
Domain Registrations: Once a domain is registered, no refunds will be applicable.
Domain Infringement: You are prohibited from registering a domain name that is similar to a trademarked domain or a domain associated with a well-known brand providing similar goods or services. Any individual or entity attempting to register such a domain name will be held liable for trademark infringement. Examples of prohibited domain names include “flipkartsale.in,” “bajajfinancecs.com,” and “adtyabrlafnanc.co.in.”

We offer “Unlimited” hosting plans that provide ample disk space, bandwidth, and website resources for the normal operation of personal or small business websites, in accordance with our agreement. However, in cases where your service usage or content poses a risk to the stability, performance, or uptime of our servers or infrastructure, we may require you to upgrade to a Virtual Private Server (VPS) or take necessary action to restrict the resources your website is utilizing.
It is important to note that our “Unlimited” hosting is designed to meet the needs of small and medium-sized businesses. While we make every effort to provide additional resources to users who are using their websites in compliance with our terms, we have automated safeguards in place to protect against rapid growth that may adversely affect the system. These safeguards allow us to evaluate resource needs and ensure a consistent and quality experience for all users.
Our “Unlimited” usage policies do not permit abuse or activities that adversely impact other hosting subscribers. Additionally, certain types of data and files, such as online storage, videos, images, games, and executable files, are not covered under the “Unlimited” hosting offering. Prohibited activities may result in the termination of your hosting account.
Permitted CPU and Disk Usage
The space on our shared hosting servers is intended for hosting web files and your website content. It should not be used for media storage, storing electronic files, website backups, FTP hosting, or demo purposes. We reserve the right to inspect shared hosting accounts to ensure compliance with this agreement. If any violation is found, we may take appropriate action, including suspension or termination of the account.
Please note that the usage limits for dedicated and virtual private servers (VPS) will depend on the resources allocated to the specific plan you have purchased.
