INFOCOM CENTER LIMITED HOSTING SERVICES

A web hosting service is a type of Internet service that offers individuals and organizations/companies the resources to host their own web sites and store information, images, video, and other content accessible via the World Wide Web. A Storage Service Provider (SSP) is a company that provides computer storage space and related management services. SSPs offer also periodic backup and archiving.

InfoCom Center Limited offers only web hosting services, not data storage services. A web hosting service consists of the following:

SERVICE FEATURES

  1. Disk Space – We use a clustered storage technology. This means that the storage resources of a hosting plan purchased from us are not confined to a single server, but are distributed between multiple machines. This way optimal performance is guaranteed and higher server stability. It also ensures that you will be able to avail of all the storage quota that has been assigned to your particular account. Additional disk space is available as an upgrade option. Payment is accepted only in advance per year. Contact sales for more information.
  2. Traffic – Each hosting plan includes prepaid monthly traffic in Megabytes. This traffic quota is shared between all sites hosted in a single account. In case that a hosting account exceeds its allowed traffic quota, it will be suspended until the beginning of next month when the quota will refresh automatically. Additional traffic is available as upgrade. Contact sales for more information.
  3. Hosted Domains – InfoCom Center Limited’s hosting plans include domain hosting. Each hosting plan allows a particular number of domains that can be hosted.
  4. Domain Registration/Transfer – available at regular or a discounted price (depending on the chosen TLD) with the purchasing of a web hosting account. Each account can host a maximum of one discounted domain name. Domain registrations are final and are not subject to refund. More information regarding domain names can be found further in this TOS (Terms of Service), in our Domain Name Registration Agreement and in the Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy.
  5. E-mail accounts – different number of e-mail accounts are available for setup with each web hosting plan.
  6. MySQL/PostgreSQL Database(s) – MySQL databases are included in all web hosting plans. Additional databases are available as upgrade. PostgreSQL databases can be either included or optional. Contact sales for more information.
  7. Database Storage – InfoCom Center Limited offers unlimited mysql database storage for each hosting account. However, accounts with very large single databases can affect the overall server performance. Thus, we recommend that each database is kept under 200 MB in size. For accounts with databases over 500 MB in size, InfoCom Center Limited may request that the number of total database usage be reduced to ensure proper performance or may terminate the Subscriber’s account, with or without notice.
  8. IP Address – InfoCom Center Limited hosting accounts do not include IP addresses. For many customers IP address is important for starting SSL hosts, that’s why we allow the purchasing of IP addresses. Payment is accepted only in advance per year. Contact sales for more information.
  9. SSH – In case your hosting account does not include SSH, please contact sales department for more information on how to obtain it. Payment is accepted only in advance per year.
  10. ID Protection – This service ensures that your private contact information will not be visible in the domain’s WHOIS details. Optional for all hosting plans, but available only with certain TLDs, supporting this option.

Detailed information about all features included in our web hosting packages is available on our web hosting plan pages.

SERVICE PAYMENT

When signing up for an account with InfoCom Center Limited, the Customer agrees to pay for the period of one year (365 days) and abide by our Order Verification Policy.

InfoCom Center Limited reserves the right to introduce price changes to the packages when needed.

SERVICE EXPIRATION AND RENEWAL

HOSTING SERVICE

The hosting service is active for the period paid by the user. After the expiration of that period, the account will be automatically suspended and will remain suspended until the Customer renews it by paying its annual subscription fee. In case that the Customer does not renew his/her hosting account, it will remain BLOCKED. The account data will be kept for 30 days, after that it will be permanently deleted.

E-mail notifications regarding each account’s expiration are dispatched twice – 30 days prior to the expiration date of the account. In order to receive the notifications, the Customer must provide a valid e-mail address. InfoCom Center Limited ensures that the e-mails are sent and takes no responsibility for e-mails that are not delivered due to problems with the recipient’s e-mail address.

DOMAIN NAMES

Domain names are valid for the number of years of their registration (domain names can be registered for the period of 1 to 10 years, depending on their TLD – top-level domain name – extension). After an expiration of a domain name several stages follow regarding its renewal.

  • The domain name Redemption Grace Period (RGP) is a registry level period that starts about 30 days after the domain name’s expiration date. During this period the domain name is kept on hold by the Registrar before it gets deleted. The domain registrant is allowed to retrieve the domain name from deletion, but this process costs additional redemption fee. The RGP fee depends on the given TLD and on the registrar through which it is registered as follows:
  • The RGP period extends the time available for renewing domain names. However, any web site or e-mail services associated with the domain name will stop working and the domains that enter a redemption period may be removed from the zone files (the list of domain names currently in the global DNS).
  • Extended Redemption Grace Period – the extended redemption grace period adds another 7 – 30 days to the domain name’s redemption period. During this period the domain name owner is allowed to retrieve the domain name from deletion by contacting the domain’s registrar.
  • After the redemption period of an expired domain name is finished, comes the Pending Delete Period – a registry level period of up to 5 days during which no one is allowed to renew the domain name and it cannot be newly registered because it’s still not returned to the public pool of domain names.
  • Released by Registry Period – the domain name is sent back into the public pool of domain names and is newly available for registration.

Customers are advised to renew their domain registrations before their domain names are placed into redemption. When a domain name transits in redemption period, we are not able any more to prevent its zone files from being removed from the DNS system, and the customer’s web site and any associated services will stop working.

During a domain name’s redemption period, we can assist the customer in retrieving his/her domain name from deletion only if the domain name was registered with us. The customer will need to pay a REDEMPTION FEE which vary for the domain registration renewal (the redemption fee is imposed by our Registrar). If the domain name was registered with another registrar, the customer needs to contact that registrar for more information regarding its retrieving.

Each web hosting account is entitled to e-mail storage equal to the allocated disk space in your purchased plan, which is shared between all mailboxes, created for this account.
  • Disk Space and Traffic – InfoCom Center Limited offers generous amounts of disk space and network bandwidth. Customers must not allow other websites or hosting servers to link to files stored in their hosting accounts, and thus steal network traffic. In order to escape unjust distribution of the resources, as well as possible sharing of illegal content, Customers are not allowed to use their hosting accounts as a remote storage server only or solely for the purpose of sharing (un)archived images, programs or sound files. At least 80% of all files and/or total megabytes used (including MP3, WAV, RA, GIF, JPG, ZIP, RAR, but not limited to these file types) in each hosting account must be a part of actual, active website(s) content, i.e. all content files must have corresponding HTML or PHP files that link to them.

If the client fails to react within 24 hours after the request and does not remove the file/files in question, or if the apportioned traffic quota continues to be used for such purposes, the Provider reserves the right to suspend the account and/or to remove the aforesaid content from the server. In such cases, refunds are not applicable and the money-back guarantee is no longer valid.
  • MySQL usage – each database hosted in our system can be used only by the user who created it. Another user, whose account is hosted on the same or on another server, cannot use the database created in the first-mentioned customer account. The MySQL database has a limit of 45,000 queries per hour. If you have reached 45,000 queries per a given hour, you will not be able to make any more queries. In the next hour you will have access to the database again and the counter will be reset. You can make a maximum of 15 simultaneous connections to a MySQL database.
  • Access and error logs – The access and error logs for all client’s hosts in one account should not exceed 500 MB in total.
  • Server content MUST comply with the parameters stated in this TOS and our AUP (Acceptable Use Policy).

Traffic processing there is not recommendable. InfoCom Center Limited cannot and will not be held responsible for changing it afterwards. Customers are advised to use it temporarily and redirect their traffic to their own domains.

SERVER USAGE and HOSTED CONTENT

“UNLIMITED” FAIR USAGE POLICIES AND DEFINITIONS

The term “UNLIMITED” is used to describe the amount of resources in the web hosting plans provided by InfoCom Center Limited, which is not set to a predefined limit value (for example – unlimited bandwidth, unlimited disk space, unlimited emails or other unlimited resources). By not setting limits on key resources, we are able to offer our customers a simple, consistent pricing scheme as their websites demand more and more resources. As a result, a typical website may experience periods of great popularity and a resulting increased storage need without experiencing any associated increase in hosting charges.

In all cases, when a service is listed as “Unlimited”, it is intended for normal web hosting usage only – all activities, which may result in excessive resource usage inconsistent with regular usage patterns, are prohibited.

Our Unlimited service offers are not designed to allow a single user to influence the overall server performance. InfoCom Center Limited will make every effort to provide its customers with additional resources whenever possible, including the relocation of a customer’s hosting account to a newer, faster server. However, if the resource usage reaches a level where it may influence the overall server performance in a negative way, InfoCom Center Limited reserves the right to take corrective actions. Such actions may include disconnection or discontinuance of any and of all offered services, removal or deletion of customers’ websites, website content, electronic mail, or termination of a customer’s account according to InfoCom Center Limited’s sole and absolute discretion.

Meanwhile, the user account will be suspended (in order to protect our system from fraudulent activity and misuse) and will remain suspended until the reasons for the chargeback have been clarified and decision has been taken for according action.

If the chargeback has occurred due to some misunderstanding, a reverse payment procedure will be initiated with our authorized retailers and the account will be re-activated.

If the user has sent a chargeback request based on groundless argumentation (to our own judgment and these Web Hosting Terms of Service), then a dispute will be started with our authorized retailers in which the Web Hosting Terms of Service (this document) and the Acceptable Use Policy of InfoCom Center Limited will serve as proof of the Customer’s agreement. The retailers then, taking into consideration all provisions in these legal documents, will decide whether the Customer has had sufficient grounds for the chargeback or InfoCom Center Limited has the right to a reverse payment.

In case that the chargeback originates from a fraudulent user and no reverse payment procedure can be initiated, then the respective hosting account will remain suspended.
