Please, read the Terms now to avoid unpleasant surprises in future.


If you still have questions, feel free to post them here.
All complaints about violations of the uCoz Terms of Use should be forwarded to the uCoz Abuse Service here: http://www.ucoz.com/abuse (the form at the bottom of the page).

Frequently Asked Questions


1. Are there any additional reasons for websites to be removed (blocked) by uCoz, like usage of harmful scripts etc.?

Scripts that make site navigation difficult and hinder users from managing a website in a proper way are definitely harmful. There is a high possibility that such website is going to be removed without any warning.

2. Is it allowed to post erotic related content on the website?

Yes, it is. But be very careful. Avoid close-up shots. And remember: pornographic, obscene, nude, graphically violent, and other inappropriate content is strictly prohibited.

3. Am I allowed to perform commercial activity (business) on my uCoz websites?

Yes, you are. It is not prohibited by the uCoz Terms of Use.

4. Is it allowed to apply noindex or nofollow to the system copyright?

No. It is prohibited as well as hiding of the uCoz copyright in any other way.

Do you have to have to little 'powered by uCoz' button at the bottom of the page or could you delete the button and replace it with say, 'This website is powered by uCoz' and just have it with plain text and no hyperlinks to the uCoz Homepage so in other words, is it legal? My second question is with the domain, is there anyway on getting a personal, free .com domain without paying? (e.g- www.doctorwhoofficial.com) I tried searching it up typing 'free domains' in the search page in the forum but starbright mentioned .tk not .com

Please someone help me. sad

1.Hiding or removal of ucoz banner is illegal resulting by means of deletion of your sites.
2.You can't delete it but u can change the look of it.
control panel > settings > Ad banner customization > uCoz banner and copyright adjustment > Appearance of uCoz copyright:

2.

No. buy a .com domain from godaddy or anywhere and u can attach to your site(ucoz not provide a .com domain feature).

I m back on track...

I was wondering if i can make a website and forum about Music and to allow people to download the music for free, and i saw that it would be illegal or whatever but i saw some Ucoz sites that have cracked programs. I just want to ask if my site will be suspended for letting people to download music thats all
Thanks

Well, if your website will be reported as an abusive one and the uCoz staff will get complaints about your website, it will be, most likely, shut down.

Roger_James, as a rule music files have copyright, therefore if copyright holders will send us a report about copyright infringement then you will be first asked to remove the files, then (if you won't do it) your website will be blocked. So it's up to you to decide.

Sunny, What if he just links to the music files? But not host them on his uCoz site, would that be Copyright Infrigment?

Probably no as the files won't be located on our servers.

8. Spamming to promote your website
I got a question from one of my users on one of my sites asking to explain what exactly the 8th rule mean.
Does it mean that you create the site on uCoz to spam other website or does it mean you spam other website to get the traffic to your site or what ever else it could mean?
