CLIENT hereby agrees that PROVIDER shall have no liability to CLIENT or any of CLIENT's users due to any corrective action that PROVIDER may take (including, without limitation, suspension, termination or disconnection of Services).

Any such termination or cancellation will be subject to the payment of any outstanding charges. Fees for any Renewal Term will be set out in our written acceptance of the renewal 15 days prior to expiration of the Term for Shared Hosting and all associated services, 7 days prior to expiration for VPS and Active Dedicated Server Services and upon expiration for monthly Shared Hosting services.

  • CLIENT will be fully responsible for making any payments and covering all fees for using the Services provided by Maiahost as described in the Registration Form.

Domain name registration Fees must be paid in full before your Order will be reviewed.
  • CLIENT agrees to pay by credit card. CLIENT agrees to provide updated credit card information on-line as may be requested in case Your card is being declined.

The account will be "reactivated" after payment in full is received. Credit card accounts will be automatically renewed unless notified prior to expiration date of service.
  • Our obligation to provide the Service is contingent on Your payment of the Fees by the Due Date. You must pay the Fees without set off or deduction. You are responsible for keeping a current credit card on file. It is Your responsibility to ensure that We receive payment of the Fees. Should the Service be suspended, for any reason, Fees will continue to accrue. Set up and domain name registration charges are not refundable for any reason.
  • We often offer special promotions (Special Promotions). These promotions have specific terms, and generally do not apply to current customers.  They do not apply to Renewal Terms except when expressly stated in the special promotion terms. If You terminate the Services to which a Special Promotion was applied, the discount, or other benefit provided by the Special Promotion will be removed, and Your account will be rebilled as if it had been set up without the Special Promotion. If this results in additional Fees, You will be charged for those Fees.
  • We are not responsible for Your data or domain name if Service is terminated because of credit card expiration.
  • PROVIDER has the right to change the price of the services to reflect a change in the cost of the service, or other reasons. In case of price change, PROVIDER will send a 30 day advanced notice to CLIENT(s) by email only.
  • We will charge you a $1.00 service fee each time your credit card is declined.

  • CLIENT agrees to pay a one time penalty of 6% of the amount due plus $10 per month for delayed payments.
  • If You do not re-register Your domain name(s), PROVIDER may choose to register the domain name. At that time the title in, and ownership of, this domain name will vest in Maiahost. PROVIDER may sell this domain name without restriction as if the full legal and beneficial owner. Unpaid domain names may become the property of Maiahost.
  • If Maiahost collects any payment due at law or through an attorney at law or under advice therefrom or through a collection agency, or if Maiahost prevails in any action to which the CLIENT and PROVIDER are parties, CLIENT will pay all costs of collection, arbitration and litigation, including, without limitation, all court costs and Maiahost's reasonable attorneys' fees.
  • In the event that any amount due to Maiahost is not paid when due, PROVIDER, in its sole discretion, may immediately terminate this Agreement, and/or withhold or suspend Services.
  • There may be a minimum $50.00 charge to reinstate accounts that have been suspended or terminated.

The Initial Term of the Services is set out on your Order (Initial Term).
  • Termination by either party:
    • Either party may terminate this TOS upon written notice to the other if one party materially breaches any of these terms and the breaching party fails to correct the breach within 10 (ten) days following the party's written notice, or immediately if the breach is incapable of cure.
  • Termination by PROVIDER:
    • PROVIDER may terminate this TOS with or without a 14 (fourteen) days advance note, if CLIENT fails to pay any sums due to Maiahost as they fall due; or if, in PROVIDER's reasonable opinion, CLIENT does not have sufficient technical expertise to use the Service without excessive ongoing technical support; or if CLIENT violates this TOS or any agreement incorporated by reference.
    • PROVIDER may terminate a particular Order or Service, or aspect of the Services, if a Third Party ceases to make components of them available to Us, or if providing them to You becomes cost prohibitive.
    • PROVIDER reserves the right to refuse Services to anyone at PROVIDER’s own personal and reasonable discretion.
  • Termination by CLIENT:
    • If an account with a thirty (30) day money-back guarantee is purchased and cancelled within thirty (30) days of sign-up, the CLIENT will, upon request, receive a full refund of all hosting fees. Refunds made for a thirty (30) day money-back guarantee will not include domain registration fees or setup fees, nor will they include any fees for additional services that are purchased in the first thirty (30) days. If Your plan includes a free domain name and You cancel within the first 30 days, a fee for the domain will be deducted from your refund.

    • CLIENT may terminate the Services with a written notice sent by mail to 37-28 61 st Street, Woodside, NY 11377, or by email to sales@maiahost.com.

Your hardware, software and any other items You deem necessary to use the Services must be compatible with the Services. PROVIDER is and will not be obligated to modify the Services to accommodate Your use.

Unlimited use applies to Your use of web pages only (html, php, etc.), not for storage of movies, pictures or MP3 files. More specifically:

 

  • With regard to data traffic on Shared Hosting services, a Fair Use policy will apply. If the contents of Your Space regularly generate more server traffic than is deemed acceptable by Maiahost, to the detriment of other Maiahost clients, Maiahost shall issue a warning by email to CLIENT, at the address CLIENT has provided to Maiahost in which Maiahost requests that CLIENT removes the contents or upgrade to a more suitable package. Excessive traffic may be caused by abnormally high traffic on Your web pages or by powerful software solutions which You have installed on the Space. Our warning will also contain the terms and conditions for the appropriate solution which is capable of handling Your prevailing level of traffic. If CLIENT does not comply with this warning within 5 business days, PROVIDER reserves the right to terminate this TOS at its own discretion.
  • Virtual Private Servers (VPS) have a set bandwidth allocation applicable to each Service, as set out on the Product Page. If in any calendar month You obtain any bandwidth or disk space usage over that basic allocation, then PROVIDER will charge You its standard overage Fee currently set at $5/GB. Unused bandwidth may not be carried over from month-to-month.

 

  • PROVIDER acts in good faith to back up data stored on the CLIENT’s account occasionally. These backups are intended for internal use only and are not related to any Back Up Services We may offer.

  • Parked Domain Services. ???
  • CPU Usage. CLIENT agrees that You shall not use excessive amounts of CPU processing on any of PROVIDER's servers. Any violation of this policy may result in corrective action by PROVIDER, including assessment of additional charges, disconnection or discontinuance of any and all Services, or termination of this Agreement, which actions may be taken in PROVIDER’s sole and absolute discretion. If Maiahost takes any corrective action under this section, PROVIDER shall not be entitled to a refund of any fees paid in advance prior to such action.
