Customer Service Additional Spam Protection Implemented

It is our goal to ensure that a user that is on the same server as you, doesn't send out spam as any user that sends out spam can cause problems for all users on that server. There are already measures in place to help minimize this and although we haven't had any problems, we will stay one step ahead of such problems to ensure your websites always remain at the highest speeds possible.
