Server Hosting Agreement
All servers are automatically subject to this hosting agreement.
We reserve the right to modify this agreement as we deem necessary.
All modifications to this agreement are immediately in effect for
any server hosted with Preygrounds.com. It is the server renters
responsibility to review this agreement. However, any major changes
will be e-mailed to all server renters.
may change any settings you wish, except the following:
You cannot change a private server to a public
one, doing so would violate the agreement and
result in your Server being disconnected. (However
you can switch a Public server to Private).
Your space on the server for maps and mods is
unlimited WITHIN REASON. If it gets too excessive,
we may be forced to limit the amount of space
you are using. Basically, if you start using excessive
disk space, we will have to enforce a limit. Typically, under 2GB is considered normal usage.
You're limited to 10 KB/sec (10000) of bandwidth per user
except during clan matches, where we allow you
to utilize 25 KB/sec (25000). This is the sv_maxrate setting.
4) Do not change the maximum amount of player slots on your server. You must
contact us and purchase additional player slots first.
5) You may not include the password inside the server name for private servers. This is essentially making it a public server, you should purchase a public server if that is what you'd like.
6) A maximum of 2 bots are allowed per server.
7) You are not allowed to change the network port your server runs on. If you need to change your port for any reason please
contact us and we'll assist you.
if you lose data you upload to the server, or
someone crashes your server, we aren't going
to accept liability for it. And finally, reselling of
our servers would constitute a violation
of the agreement, and your server would be disconnected.
Aside from those limitations, you can do just
about whatever you want. You can load any number
of maps and mods, change any game settings with
your rcon password, and otherwise frag away and
enjoy the server. We do, however, reserve the
right to change settings on the server if something
gets out of hand.
you CAN do:
Upload as many maps and mods as you want, within
Change game settings such as game type, game speed,
Switch to 25KB/sec per user when you're playing
those important clan games (matches).
At any time, switch your Public server to Private
(such as for a clan match or something).
Enjoy some nice lag-free gaming :).
you have any questions about the agreement, or
what you can and cannot do with your server, please
drop us an email.
The rules are pretty minor, you have a lot of
freedom when it comes to using your server.
