Excessive Resource User Policy:
Resources are defined as bandwidth, memory and/or processor utilization. Hyperdot Communications offers a shared web hosting service in which environment customers may share resources with other customer’s, therefore it is imperative that Hyperdot Communications control any excessive usage by customers so that they do not disrupt the service quality of other customers using the same resources. A website is considered using “Excessive amounts of resources” when it monopolies the resources available using 8% or more of system resources for longer than 60 seconds. There are numerous issues that could cause such problems, including but not limited to: cgi scripts, FTP, HTTP, etc. Any site that consumes over the account limit of bandwidth is also considered an “excessive resource” user. In the event of excessive resource usage Hyperdot Communications may act in the following manner: if the excessive usage may cause a disruption of service to any other customer, Hyperdot Communications may suspend that customer’s account prior to notify that customer, Hyperdot Communications may also contact the excessive usage customer prior to taking any action if Hyperdot Communications feels that the excessive usage will not interfere with the service of any other customer. Client suspensions prior to notification by Hyperdot Communications is rare and is only implemented in extreme circumstances and is intended to prevent the misuse of our servers. The client whom is using “excessive resources” may be asked to upgrade his/her package to one of our dedicated server packages to reduce their excessive usage utilization in the future. Hyperdot Communications will be the sole and final arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this policy.

No SPAM:
UCE/UBE or “Spam” originating from a server located on our network or associated with Hyperdot Communications server is not tolerated. This includes any e-mail that promotes web sites hosted on a server located on the Hyperdot Communications network but is sent from an e-mail address not associated with that Hyperdot Communications account. Client shall not use their Hyperdot Communications services for chain letters, junk mail, bulk-email, or any use of distribution lists to any person who has not given specific permission to be included in such a process. Hyperdot Communications reserves the right to deactivate or terminate any account(s) upon any indication of such activity without notice.

Excessive Exploits:
Hyperdot Communications allows 3rd party scripts to be uploaded/installed from our auto-installer or manually (those scripts that are/aren’t included in the auto-installer) on your web hosting account. It is the responsibility or our web hosting clients to maintain the latest exploit free version of the scripts. If a script that our web hosting clients uploads to our servers is found to have security lapses and allows a third party to “hack”, “exploit”, “deface” their site(s) it is the responsibility of our clients to either remove that script or Hyperdot Communications reserves the right to terminate that clients’ account.

Back-Up Files:
Hyperdot Communications provides the tools needed to create back ups of account data. Hyperdot Communications also backs up its servers and retains a copy for 24 hours for disaster recovery purposes only. It is the responsibility of the customer to keep up-to-date archives of their backed up data. Hyperdot Communications does not provide or keep records or copies of our clients web site files for customer use and is not responsible for any loss of data.

Payment Obligations:
Full payment is required in advance before hosting service is established. Hyperdot Communications sends out invoices that are due every pay period. You warrant and represent that the information you supply in the Order Form/Email (or other information that Hyperdot Communications may require) is accurate and truthful. All payment-due notices will be sent by e-mail. No bills or invoices will be sent by postal mail or fax. If payment was not received by the due-date, your account will be suspended. It is the client’s responsibility to ensure that payment is made to Hyperdot Communications prior to the renewal date and although Hyperdot Communications sends renewal notices to our customers prior to their renewal date, because of the ability for a customer to change their contact email addresses without notifying Hyperdot Communications, the customer is ultimately responsible for remembering their renewal date and to make sure payment is made upon the renewal.

Renewals:
It is the obligation of the Hyperdot Communications customer to know when their account comes up for renewal and if their intention is to non renew their account they must email to the Hyperdot Communications 5 business days prior to their account’s renewal date to ensure that Hyperdot Communications billing department receives the cancellation request well in advance of the renewal date so that they can stop any renewal charges. Hyperdot Communications clients receive email notification 15 days prior to the renewal date of their account informing them that their renewal date is approaching. It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that Hyperdot Communications has a valid email address for which we can send out renewal notices to our clients. If Hyperdot Communications does not receive a cancellation request prior to the customer’s renewal we will renew the clients’ account on the renewal date and we will apply the appropriate charges. Accounts will be automatically renewed under the same time and fee structure as the plan that the client signed up for (unless plan changes were made or upgraded between the time when the client signed up & their renewal date). The 15 day money back guarantee applies only to the start date of the clients’ service with Hyperdot Communications and does not apply to renewals of service.

Late Fees:
If the renewal amount is not paid by the due date is automatically marked overdue in the system. If renewal amount is overdue by more than four days (the grace period), the account is automatically suspended and a $15.00 late fee is added to the renewal amount. To reactivate an account that is suspended for failure to submit a payment within the grace period, a payment for the original renewal amount plus $15.00 must be submitted to Hyperdot Communications.

Cancellation & Refunds:
Should you become dissatisfied with our services within the first 15 days of your account activation, Hyperdot Communications will refund your hosting fee subject to the money back guarantee terms listed in this agreement. This does not apply for clients that had their accounts suspended due to the violation of our terms and conditions. Refunds are not available for customers after the 15 days of account activation. 15 day rule applies for shared, reseller and VPS hosting only. We don’t offer money back guarantee for dedicated servers & domain names. It means that dedicated servers & domain names (registrations or renewals) are non refundable. You may however cancel your account at any time in order to make sure that your account is not renewed. You will need to contact customer service and verify information before cancellation takes place. You will be charged in full for the entire billing period in which you cancelled your account. Accounts which have negative balances will be sent to collections and all services will be terminated, including domain registrations. Refunds are never available for domain registrations. Domain Names transferred to our service incur an additional year of registration and therefore are considered a domain registration. Domain names of customers which leave our hosting service will be refunded the package price total less the domain registration fee if the customer leaves Hyperdot Communications hosting service within the 15 day money back guarantee. In addition, refunds are not available for additional services which you may purchase at Hyperdot Communications. For instance, an additional domain name we may purchase for a client is not refundable and a dedicated IP which we may setup for a client for a charge is not refundable. Web site files are the responsibility of the Hyperdot Communications customer and should a Hyperdot Communications customer decide to cancel their service it is the customer’s responsibility to make sure that they have backed up & downloaded the web site files and any emails from the Hyperdot Communications server prior to requesting that Hyperdot Communications cancels their account. Once the cancellation request has been submitted to Hyperdot Communications a cancellation of the web site hosting service may occur anytime after the request is received by Hyperdot Communications and when a cancellation request is completed the client’s hosting account with Hyperdot Communications and their web site files are permanently removed from the Hyperdot Communications servers. Therefore again it is the client’s obligation to ensure that they have downloaded their web site files and any emails from the server prior to their cancellation request.
