Hosting Agreement

Welcome to Host Depot's web hosting services. This Hosting Agreement governs your purchase and use, in any manner, of all web hosting services, including the Shared Hosting Services and Dedicated Hosting Services, (collectively, the "Services") as described in the Order Form, ordered by you and accepted by Host Depot, and describes the terms and conditions that apply to such purchase and use of the Services. If you have registered for Colocation Services, then the term "Services" shall also include such Colocation Services so that this Agreement will govern your purchase and use of all such Services (including Colocation Services); provided, however, that your purchase and use of the Colocation Services shall also be governed by the terms and conditions set forth in Section 9 to this Agreement. If you did not register for Colocation Services, however, then Section 9 is inapplicable to your purchase and use of the Services. For purposes of this Agreement, the Shared Hosting Services include the E-Mail and E-Commerce Services. You must register and accept the terms of this Agreement in order to use the Services. BY ACCEPTING THIS AGREEMENT, AND REGISTERING FOR AND USING THE SERVICES, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ THIS AGREEMENT AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CONTAINED HEREIN AS WELL AS ALL POLICIES AND GUIDELINES INCORPORATED BY REFERENCE.

Host Depot reserves the right to change or modify any of the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement, and any policy or guideline incorporated by reference at any time and from time to time in its sole discretion, and to determine whether and when any such changes apply to both existing or future customers. Any changes or modification will be effective upon posting of the revisions on the HostDepot.com or SiteUtil.com web sites (the "Web Site"). Host Depot will post a notice of such changes or modifications to this Agreement or the Addendum on the Web Site for thirty (30) days. Host Depot may post changes or modifications to referenced policies and guidelines without notice to you. Your continued use of the Services following Host Depot's posting of any changes or modifications will constitute your acceptance of such changes or modifications. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT, DO NOT ACCEPT THIS AGREEMENT. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE TERMS OF ANY MODIFICATION, DO NOT CONTINUE TO USE THE SERVICES AND IMMEDIATELY NOTIFY HOST DEPOT OF YOUR TERMINATION OF THIS AGREEMENT IN THE MANNER DESCRIBED IN SECTION 1B BELOW.

  1. Term and Payment for Services

    1. Term
      This Agreement shall be for an "Initial Term" of either (a) thirty (30) days if you register for Shared Hosting Services, or (b) twelve (12) months from the order date if you register for Dedicated Hosting Services, or (c) as otherwise chosen by you in the Order Form, located on the Site, at the time you register for the Services. This Agreement will be automatically renewed (the "Renewal Term") at the end of the Initial Term for the same period as the Initial Term unless you provide Host Depot with notice of termination either (a) at least seven (7) days prior to the end of the Initial Term or the Renewal Term, whichever is then applicable, if you registered for and are receiving Shared Hosting Services or (b) at least thirty (30) days prior to the end of the Initial Term or Renewal Term, whichever is then applicable, if you registered for and are receiving Dedicated Hosting Services or have pre-paid for Shared Hosting Services. You must provide Host Depot with your notice of termination by canceling your service by speaking with an account manager. Upon canceling your service, you will be asked to provide Host Depot with sufficient customer identification information so that Host Depot may properly identify you and your account. Any notice of termination will be effective upon Host Depot's receipt thereof.

    2. Termination Policy
      If you terminate your receipt of the Services prior to the end of the Initial Term or the Renewal Term, whichever is then applicable, (a) Host Depot shall not refund to you any fees paid in advance of such termination and (b) you shall be required to pay the lesser of three (3) times the standard monthly charge or 100% of Host Depot's standard monthly charge for each month remaining in the term, unless otherwise expressly provided herein. Your termination request must be submitted to Host Depot in the manner described in Section 1A. Host Depot may terminate this Agreement at any time and for any reason by providing to you thirty (30) days prior written notice of termination. If Host Depot terminates this Agreement, Host Depot shall refund to you the pro-rata portion of pre-paid fees attributable to Services not yet rendered as of the termination date unless otherwise expressly provided herein.

    3. Liability and Obligations on Termination
      Should the Agreement expire or be terminated for any reason, Host Depot will not be liable to you because of such expiration or termination for compensation, reimbursement or damages on account of the loss of prospective profits, anticipated sales, goodwill or on account of expenditures, investments, leases or commitments in connection with your business, or for any other reason whatsoever flowing from such termination or expiration. Any termination of this Agreement shall not relieve you of any obligations to pay fees and costs accrued prior to the termination date and any other amounts owed by you to Host Depot as provided in this Agreement.

    4. Charges
      You agree to pay for all charges attributable to your use of the Services at the then current Host Depot prices, which shall be exclusive of any applicable taxes. You shall be responsible for the payment of all federal, state, and local sales, use, value added, excise, duty and any other taxes assessed with respect to the Services. You shall be responsible for paying any banking fees associated with the Services, including but not limited to returned check fees, chargeback fees, wire transfer fees, and processing fees. Your account will be assessed a returned check fee for each returned check associated with your account, a chargeback fee for each credit card chargeback associated with your account, and a wire transfer fee for each payment received by wire transfer. These fees are non-refundable and subject to change without notice.

    5. Payment
      All charges for Services must be paid in advance according to the then current price applicable to the Services. Upon registration for Shared Hosting Services or Dedicated Hosting Services, you must choose to pay for the Services either by credit card or upon your receipt of an invoice. If you choose to pay by credit card upon registering for Shared Hosting Services or Dedicated Hosting Services, you thereby authorize Host Depot to charge your credit or debit card to pay for any charges that may apply to your account. You agree that Host Depot may accumulate any supplemental charges, as described in the Order Form, incurred by you in your use of the Services ("Supplemental Charges") until such charges exceed $10 and then charge your card. You must notify Host Depot of any changes to your card account (including, without limitation, applicable account number or cancellation or expiration of the account), your billing address, or any information that may prohibit Host Depot from charging your account. If you choose to be invoiced upon registration for Shared Hosting Services or Dedicated Hosting Services, Host Depot will send an invoice to you for the Services applicable to the period for which you have registered for the Services. Host Depot may also send periodic invoices to you for any applicable Supplemental Charges associated with your use of the Services. You agree to pay to Host Depot the amount indicated in each invoice by the due date reflected on the invoice. If you fail to pay any fees and taxes within ten (10) days from applicable due date for credit card or invoice payments, a late charge of $5 or 10%, whichever is greater, or the maximum amount allowed by law will be assessed and become payable by you to Host Depot. In addition, your failure to fully pay any fees and taxes within ten (10) days after the applicable due date will be deemed a material breach of this Agreement, justifying Host Depot's suspension of its performance of the Services and/or termination of this Agreement. You are responsible for any fees associated with reinstated of Services. Any such termination would not relieve you from paying past due fees plus interest. In the event of collection enforcement, you will be liable for any costs associated with such collection, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees, court costs and collection agency fees.

    6. 30-Day Money Back Guarantee
      Notwithstanding Sections 1A through 1D, if you are not fully satisfied with the Services and the Services provide for a 30-day money back guarantee, you may terminate this Agreement at any time during the first thirty (30) days from your initial order date and receive a full refund of all payments made by you to Host Depot for the Services. This does not include any setup fees, hardware fees, installation fees, or fees paid for domain registration. To receive such refund, you must terminate this Agreement in the manner described in Section 1A and cease using the Services, and Host Depot must receive your termination notice, within the above described thirty (30) day period. You agree to provide Host Depot with a description of why you are not satisfied with the Services and are terminating this Agreement.

    3. Material and Product Requirements
      You must ensure that all material and data placed on Host Depot's equipment is in a condition that is "server-ready," which is in a form requiring no additional manipulation by Host Depot. Host Depot will make no effort to validate any of this information for content, correctness or usability. In the event that your material is not "server-ready", Host Depot has the option at any time to reject this material. Host Depot will notify you of its refusal of the material and afford you the opportunity to amend or modify the material to satisfy the needs and/or requirements of Host Depot. Use of the Services requires a certain level of knowledge in the use of Internet languages, protocols and software. This level of knowledge varies depending on the anticipated use and desired content of your web site. You must have the necessary knowledge to create and maintain a web site. It is not Host Depot's responsibility to provide this knowledge or customer support outside of the Services agreed to by you and Host Depot.

    4. Bandwidth, Storage, and E-Mail Usage
      You agree that use of the Services hereunder will not exceed the bandwidth, storage and e-mail usage limits set out in the Order Form. If you use any bandwidth or storage space in excess of the agreed upon number of megabytes per month or if you exceed E-Mail storage and attachment size limitations, Host Depot may, in its sole discretion, assess you with additional charges, suspend the performance of the Service, or terminate this Agreement. In the event that Host Depot elects to take any corrective action, you will not be entitled to a refund of any unused pre-paid fees.

    5. Domain Names
      As part of the Services, you will provide Host Depot with a registered domain name or names or Host Depot will register such domain name(s) selected by you, provided that such domain name is available for registration and does not violate any Register.com or other registration services' policies, or any law or regulation. You agree to promptly reimburse Host Depot for any fees paid by Host Depot to Register.com or other registration services with respect to the registration and maintenance of such domain name(s). In the event of any dispute or cause of action arising out of or related to your domain name used in connection with the Services, upon your request Host Depot will attempt to register with Register.com or other registrar an alternative domain name chosen by you. You agree to be bound by the terms of Register.com's then current domain name policy and/or the policies of the national DNS registration authorities to which you become subject upon registration of your domain name. The inability to use a domain name shall not entitle you to a refund by Host Depot of any fees paid with respect to the registration of such unusable domain name.

    6. Colocation Services
      If you have registered for Colocation Services, Host Depot's provision of such services is subject to, in addition to the terms of this Agreement, the terms and conditions set forth in Section 9 to this Agreement.
