2. Run stand-alone, unattended server-side processes at any point in time on the server. This includes any and all daemons, such as IRCD.
3. Run any type of web spider or indexer (including Google Cash / AdSpy) on shared servers.

10. When using PHP include functions for including a local file, include the local file rather than the URL. Instead of include(“http://yourdomain. com/include.php”) use include(“include.php”)
11. To help reduce usage, do not force html to handle server-side code (like php and shtml).
