UVerse webserver policy
Edited by schnappi on Nov 17, 2013 at 9:53:32 PM

What is the UVerse policy regarding webservers (allowed, not allowed, allowed until traffic becomes noticeable, ect.)?

 

Granted UVerser upstream will keep traffic down on any site but still interested in the answer nonetheless.

No, that's not what the TOS says.

 

The TOS says that residential service must be non-commercial.  It doesn't say you can't run a web server.

 

If the web server is a lightly-used server for personal purposes that isn't selling anything, then it meets the TOS for residential service.

 

 

I run a web server at my house (for non-commercial purposes, no sales) on a residential account and I've never had any issue.

I appreciate the link but would have preferred a more "friendly" answer.

If looking at webserver, then you must be looking for Business Account as residential account is

Best find it writing that you know and can refer to. As stated for residential Uverse services...

"AT&T U-verse Services are provided for your non-commercial personal use only, and for your enjoyment in a single private residential dwelling unit."

In your opinion does a web server meet or does it exceed residential usage....if exceeding then need business class.
If looking at webserver, then you must be looking for Business Account as residential account is

No, that's not what the TOS says.

 

The TOS says that residential service must be non-commercial.  It doesn't say you can't run a web server.

 

If the web server is a lightly-used server for personal purposes that isn't selling anything, then it meets the TOS for residential service.

Thanks Somejoe7777, I recognize that someone could do as your doing, no issues.
I have no idea what the OPs intend is and not going to blindly state you can run a webserver for any purpose but chose to simple post TOS for individual interpretation.

 

properly stated should have been does YOUR webserver meet or exceed

 

instead of "does A webserver meet or exceed

 

Thanks again,

You did make a blanket statement "you must be looking for a commercial account" without qualifying it, and that's what SomeJoe7777 was challenging.  Lots of reasons to have a non-commercial web presence, and since personal web sites aren't available anymore, more may be looking at it.

I'm trying to set up a webserver behind my att uverse router and even though I've opened up a hole in the firewall for port 80 the connections time out.  Is there anything else I need to do?
