On a paid hosting account, you may have the following file formats in your web
space: HTML files, Text files, and Image files (GIF, JPG, PNG). Other files we
may allow on a limited basis are Movie (MOV, WMV, AVI, SWF, ASF, etc.),
Audio (MP3, WAV, MOD, RA, RAM, etc.) and some other binary files (ZIP, EXE, COM,
PSD, PSP, etc.) In all cases, you must be the legal owner or have permission from
original creator of the files. Copyright or intellectual property infringement is
You may not have Movie, Audio, or any other binary file types on your CGI server, however. Only text (HTML, PHP, PL, CGI, etc.) and web-based image files (GIF, JPG, JPEG, JPE, PNG) are allowed on the CGI server. Shockwave Flash files may also be used as part of your site's design template.
We also may restrict Bandwidth when necessary. This applies to any file that has a large file size. Generally, movies, music, sound, and image files tend to be rather large. Please be sure to keep your file sizes small and only distribute a small amount of these files. Even one large file may cause problems for your site. Please see What do I do if my domain is restricted or taken offline? for more information.
