  • Terms Of Service

This Web Hosting Agreement is between WepHost and the person/persons who use our website hosting and domain service. Please read carefully to ensure you understand our terms before purchasing any of our products or services.

Services

WepHost agrees to provide the services stated for the price agreed at any given time. We do not miss lead customers with hidden costs unlike many other web hosting companies.

Terms

All customers are responsible for monitoring their storage space and bandwidth transfer each month. Customers who go over the limit of their account will be sent an email with the option to either upgrade their account or reduce store and or storage. If customers continue to go over we will do everything possible to fix the problem. We do hold to right to ban accounts for continuous problems. If customers sign up for an account and cancel it within the first month they will still be charged for the full first month.

Payments

Renewal notices are emailed three days before the actual renew date in your account. If your using a credit card you will not have to worry about manual payments. All accounts are set up on a pre-pay basis. If payment is more than 5 days late a $10 fee will be added. WepHost reserves the right to change prices at any time, unless other terms have been agreed upon. Any account not brought current within a week (7 days) of e-mail notice or exceeding this time frame in any way is subject to suspension. YOU are responsible for all fees owed on the account from the time it was established to the time that YOU notified WepHost to request for termination of services. YOUR particular billing cycle corresponds to the contract length that was initially chosen at setup. YOUR account will automatically renew at this length unless cancelled before hand. There is no fee for cancelling accounts. If you cancel an account on the monthly billing cycle WepHost can not refund any payments made before.

All payments are non refundable once the 30 day money back guarantee has passed. Our 30 day refund policy excludes reseller plans, vps, servers, domains, SSL certificates and plans paid for longer than 1 month and accounts that are suspended or terminated for abuse. We can not refund unused portions of your plan. All payments are non-refundable if your account does not follow our terms of service/acceptable usage policy.

Disk Space Abuse

WepHost will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision. You are responsible for monitoring your disk space usage. If you need extra disk space contact one of our staff and they will be happy to help out.

Shared hosting space may only be used for web files, active email and content of User Websites. Shared hosting space may not be used for storage (whether of media, emails, or other data), including, as offsite storage of electronic files, email or FTP hosts. WepHost expressly reserves the right to review every shared account for excessive usage of CPU, disk space and other resources that may be caused by a violation of this Agreement or the Acceptable Use Policy. WepHost may, in our sole discretion, terminate access to the Services, apply additional fees, or remove or delete User Content for those accounts that are found to be in violation of WepHost’s terms and conditions.

Bandwidth Abuse

The intention of WepHost is to provide a large bandwidth to transfer web documents, and not an offsite storage area for electronic files. If YOU violate this condition, YOU will be notified and given 48 hours to remedy the problem. Failure to do so will result in YOU being billed for the overages.

Traffic will go unmonitored until YOU reach the amount of quota allocated to YOUR specific PLAN. WepHost will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision.
