  1. ECWebDesigns Account.ECWebDesigns will host an account for you corresponding with the purchased, leased or provided domain name(s) and for the period of time corresponding with the payment plan chosen by you. The contract will automatically renew at the end of The Term unless otherwise specified by you. Once the account cancellation request is received and we process the request, this Agreement is officially terminated.

  1. Safe Use. ECWebDesigns reserves the right to select the server for Account Holder’s website for best performance. You understand that the services provided by ECWebDesigns are provided on a shared server. In order to keep our servers running at optimal levels, any sites running a process that uses more than 25% of all available system resources for 60 seconds or longer will be required to move up to VPS Hosting or Dedicated Server solution, or to be hosted elsewhere. This upgrade may result in an automatic upgrade to a higher-level pricing plan corresponding with the elevated use requirements. Alternatively, ECWebDesigns reserves the right to suspend services on that specific account until the higher usage may be accommodated. A failure by You to agree to and comply with the terms of this provision may result in the termination of the services provided to You without any refunds of the unused prepaid portion of the fees.

 

  1. Third Party Content.If you elect to sell or resell advertising or web space to a third party, then you will be responsible for the contents of that advertising and the actions of that third party. Although ECWebDesigns has no obligation to monitor third party content, ECWebDesigns has the absolute right to reject any advertising or other third-party content that is illegal, offensive or otherwise in breach of the then current ECWebDesigns policy or agreement. Such content may result in the suspension or in the immediate termination of your account. You are responsible for monitoring all domain transfers, renewal and orders. In the event that an error occurs the account holder must notify ECWebDesigns immediately of the error. In no event shall ECWebDesigns.com be liable to the Account Holder for any damages resulting from or related to any failure or delay of domain registration, transfer or renewal.

 

  1. Backup Restoration. If your account was cancelled or suspended for non-payment and you still need your data to take with you there is a $10 per incident charge for all inquiries regarding previous services and / or support. We generally keep backups available for a period of 30 days after account cancellation but can provide no guarantees on the actual length of availability of a backup.

ECWebDesigns employs privacy protection services provided by WhoisGuard on all domain names. ECWebDesigns may substitute the client’s information into the whois database upon client request.
    Free domain names must be hosted on the servers of ECWebDesigns only. At any time, you will have the option of taking full control over the domain names for a onetime fee of $14 each.

 

In the case of an upgrade to a plan with fewer free domain names, it is possible to keep up to 8 domains with ECWebDesigns for the discounted yearly renewal cost of $8.95 each. The remaining additional domains are to be transferred to your ownership for $14 each. In the event of hosting cancellation ALL the free domains can be transferred out for $14 each.

Important: We cannot register domain names with the “.co.uk” extension for you but can host them. These rules are in place to prevent the abuse of our free domain registration offer. Please email our sales department should you have any confusion regarding this promotional offer.

 

  1. Fees, Payment and Refund.As consideration for the products and/or services provided to you by ECWebDesigns, you agree to pay ECWebDesigns at the time you order.

ECWebDesigns expressly reserves the right to modify pricing and will provide an advanced notice of changes through email notification and/or notice on its website.

 

As a limited exception to the foregoing, you may receive a refund within:

  • the initial 30 days after sign up if you cancel a web hosting, business hosting account; or
  • within the initial 30 days after sign up if you cancel a VPS Hosting account.

 

Important: If the client cancels within the first 30 days and has registered new domain names with us during this time period, ECWebDesigns will charge the client a one-time fee of $10.87 per domain name (.com, .net) or $9.69 per domain name (.org, .info, .us, .biz) before the refund. Alternatively, the domain name can be transferred out to the client’s property at a cost of $14 per one domain transfer. These terms are in place to prevent abuse of our additional domain name(s) service.

 

  1. If You signed up for a monthly payment plan, your monthly billing date will be determined based on the day of the month you purchase the products or services. If you signed up for an annual (or longer) payment plan, and you elected the automatic renewal option, ECWebDesigns will automatically renew your services when they come up for renewal and will take payment in accordance with the designated payment method at ECWebDesigns’s then current rates.
    If for any reason ECWebDesigns is unable to charge your account for the full amount owed ECWebDesigns for the products and/or services provided, or if ECWebDesigns is charged a penalty for any fee it previously charged to you, you agree that ECWebDesigns may pursue all available remedies in order to obtain payment, and may suspend or terminate your account if payment is not received within fourteen (14) days of the date due.
