The use of hosting services from WebsiteZen.com, [hereafter referred to as "Website Zen", "I", or "we"] constitutes agreement to these terms.
As a convenience, I offer low-cost, shared, managed hosting exclusively for my web development clients. The hosting is optimized for the websites I build and saves me and my clients a lot of time by having the person who built the websites configure and manage the hosting account as well.
I use my best effort to keep the hosting reliable, fast, and secure, but I do not offer any guarantees. If you run into any problems or have any concerns, please let me know right away, and I will either work with you to resolve them or help you find another hosting provider that would better fit your needs.
Hosting accounts are limited in bandwidth and disk space. If your website gets an unusually large amount of traffic, constantly serves large, unoptimized files, somehow exceeds the alloted bandwidt, or uses an unfair portion of shared resources, you may be asked to either optimize your site, upgrade to a higher hosting plan, or move to another provider. These limits allow me to keep the hosting cost low without compromising quality of service.
Emails stored on the server may be automatically deleted after as little as 30 days. This prevents data loss caused by quota limits reached. If you decide to use my hosting for email, make sure you either forward a copy of all mail to an external email account or use setup an email client such as GMail or Outlook to automatically download mail using POP3.
While I usually handle all of the work of optimizing and managing your hosting, I provide you with a username and password to manage your hosting account. You have complete access to an easy-to-use hosting control panel and have full control over the content and activity taking place on your hosting. Because of this, you are completely responsible for any content that might go onto your hosting account, even if it was placed there by a third party due to stolen passwords or hacked accounts. To reduce the risk of this, please do not share your CPanel password with anyone, create sub-user accounts as appropriate if you want to delegate out management tasks, and institute a company security policy.
I reserver the right to revise these terms at any time.
