What does DLConcepts consider "Adult Material?"
Any site whose revenue is gained in part or whole from its
Photos or videos showing frontal nudity on either men or women
for non-scientific or non-artistic purposes.
Photos or videos showing graphic violence, death or dismemberment.
Photos or videos showing graphic violence or death.
Websites containing information or affiliation of known or
suspected terrorist organizations.
Revenue-generating hyperlinks to sites who violate policy
Why does DLConcepts 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 websites. 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.
DLConcepts reserves the right to decide what it considers "adult
content", "adult material", "sexually explicit",
or "sexually related". Let us know if you are unsure
of the approval of your site before placing an order.
