A ban is a rule that prohibits or denies access to a resource. For example, a user may be banned from a chat server because he or she has disobeyed the rules or may be banned from a server or game for cheating. Depending on the service or the severity of the offense your ban could last a few weeks, months, or years. Many services, including Computer Hope, will not reverse a ban unless it was created without breaking any rules.
