An instance of a spam complaint is defined as one marketing E-mail. The first Abuse Notification will provide a warning to the client and assess a $25 fine.

Did you know there are issues like emails from the server to get marked as spam?
There are a lot of monitoring servers/organizations which monitor the email traffic on the internet. If they find that a particular mail server is sending a large number of bulk mails, then they would mark these mail servers as the spammer and add the details of these mail servers to the spam database.
Once the IP of the mail server is added to the spam database, most of the networks would blacklist or block all emails from the respective mail server.
So, because of thousands of domains running on our shared hosting, To protect our clients, we will not tolerance to one of the usages like sending a bulk email messaging/sending.
Hence, Unsolicited commercial advertisements (‘SPAM’) are not allowed in the email, and will likely result in service termination.

If found, YOUR account may be suspended, if no action within 24 hours your account get termination and no refund.
