You are not allowed to offer your Shared, or Business web hosting account's file space to the public for use, (IE Selling FTP Accounts). Clients are also not authorized to use hostwinds for the hosting of download mirrors, you may have files for your clients/users/ to use, however if your website is based around users downloading files, you will need to look into a VPS solution

For example if your site or sites use more than a fair and shared usage of server resources. If this does happen you may find you account is suspended untill we can renegotiate a deal that allows you to use our services without effecting our other customers. This could but is not limited to having to pay more or having to purchase a different package.
