Q. Am I allowed to install a script that sends mail?

A. You are, but it cannot send mail as "nobody"; it must send as your username. It also cannot use the mail port directly, but must go through Sendmail. You are also responsible if someone hacks your site and sends out mail with it. Moreover, we monitor the installation of such scripts and all mass mailings from the box.

Q. Are there any advantages to getting a domain name directly with the registry instead of paying less to register through you?
