conditions set forth below. If you do not agree with the terms and
conditions herein for any reason, you must discontinue your use of the

or has provided to any Customer.
|2.SUBSCRIPTION TO Warp Speed Hosting SERVICES|
Warp Speed Hosting requires full payment for the Service before the Service may be accessed and used
although Warp Speed Hosting may solely elect to allow balances to accrue and
bill for such balances after any such service has already been provided. You may subscribe
for the Service at the rates and under any one of the alternative subscription methods described in the
plan pricing on our web site. The plans on our site are in
reference to our web hosting services. If a plan is customized for the
Customer, a price will be sent to the Customer via email as notification of
their pricing. Payment is expected to be received before Customer may select
their password and access the
Service. In the event that payment is suspended or interrupted for any reason, then your account will be in default and

changes will be accessed on your next pay period. Any taxes and third party
charges will be separately charged to you, in addition to the subscription
rates and Service. Additionally, any premium services such as premium spam
filtering, programming, design, or any other agreed upon service shall be due when services are rendered.
Premium spam services will reduce spam significantly although not completely
as there is a fine balance between removing spam and not removing legitimate
emails, therefore there are no guarantees of exactly how successful premium
spam services will be. Due to various technical issues, no
services provide for guaranteed results. It is the Customer's
responsibility to choose to cancel any service which they believe they are
not receiving the results they expect. Any and all services rendered
prior to cancellation / termination of the Service term (per paragraph 19)
is accepted as a service which shall be paid in full by the Customer.

is considered accepted by the Customer if it is not disputed in writing
within 30 days. Customer must receive a written receipt for any such
disputed invoice or balance due such as a reply to the disputed email.
A disputed invoice or statement for monies due sent by the Customer via US
Postal Service Certified Mail with return receipt shall also suffice as a written
receipt of disputing an invoice or statement / balance of monies owed.

|16. DOMAIN NAME REGISTRATION|
While Warp Speed Hosting helps facilitate the registration process for an individual or organization, it does not
endorse any of the requested domains, nor the individual/organizations registering them. Registration of a domain
name is not refundable and is completed at the point of sale for various reasons including the inability for Warp
Speed Hosting to delete the domain after it is registered and receive credit back for its registration.
Registration of domains is a courtesy service that Warp Speed Hosting provides for its customers which facilitates
hosting services yet it is quite separate from the hosting service itself as we do not create these domains
ourselves. We reserve the right to refuse registration services to any potential or current user wishing to make
inappropriate or unreasonable use of this service. The determination of what constitutes inappropriateness is up to Warp
Speed Hosting, Inc.'s sole judgment. By applying for the domain name, and through the use or continued use of the domain
name, the applicant also agrees to the domain registration terms of service within Network
Solutions, Inc. as applicable to domain name registrations, renewals, and
domain services so long as such terms do not conflict with this agreement.
Customer agrees that it is their responsibility to view Network Solutions
terms incase they change as such changes will become part of this agreement.
Customer agrees that Warp Speed Hosting may (at its sole
discretion; and under no obligation) renew any domain which is currently being serviced by Warp Speed Hosting. It is
understood by the Customer that such an elective renewal may occur so as to help avoid potential downtime of services being provided by Warp Speed Hosting
and or to secure a domain for any balances which may be owed by Customer to
Warp Speed Hosting.
by Warp Speed Hosting without the Customer's expressed request will not exceed a two-year registration renewal. Customer agrees to pay for the retail price of domain registration
renewals which are automatically renewed by Warp Speed Hosting and that such
payments will first be applied to any hosting service balance owed and then
to domain name registration renewal amounts due. Customer understands and
agrees that prior to a balance being paid in full, Warp Speed Hosting may,
as its sole election, renew the domain with the funds of Warp Speed Hosting
and change the registrant ownership information to Warp Speed Hosting in order
to secure a lien on Customer's domain name until all Warp Speed Hosting balances are received and paid in full. Once payment
is made in full for all Warp Speed Hosting balances, Warp Speed Hosting will transfer ownership of the domain to
the previous owner of the domain. Customer
understands and agrees that Warp Speed Hosting may solely elect to provide no services on such secured
domain until any and all balances are paid. Customer agrees to maintain current all Whois information
for Customer's domain name. Customer is solely responsible for knowing the expiration dates required for renewal
and understands that their hosting services may be interrupted should their
domain expire. Customer further understands that they may loose
all rights to the ownership of their domain name after the domain expires. Customer
therefore understands and agrees that it is Customer's sole responsibility
(under any and all circumstances) to renew their domain name prior to
Customer agrees that sections 7 (indemnification) & 8 (limitation of
liability) of these terms apply to this entire agreement including domain
name registrations and/or renewals. Attempting to renew domain names after the expiration date are not guaranteed, and attempting to renew domain names after
the expiration date may result in additional fees, whether or not such attempts to recover domain names from redemption,
expiration, or deletion are successful. Please note that domain registration, renewal, and private registration fees are not refundable.
|17.COMMERCIAL WEB HOSTING|
Warp Speed Hosting make its servers available to subscribers of its web hosting services, but does not endorse any of the items hosted on its servers. We reserve the right to refuse hosting services to any potential or current user wishing to make inappropriate or unreasonable use of our hosting services, which could have a negative impact on Warp Speed Hosting's ability to serve its other customers. The inappropriateness or reasonableness of a customer's "web presence materials" shall be determined by Warp Speed Hosting's sole judgment. Examples of inappropriate or unreasonable use:
-Providing materials that the government deems illegal. Providing "adult" material on an open site that could be accessed by children.
-Promoting or sending out unsolicited commercial email or Spam.
-Excessive consumption of disk space, bandwidth, CPU, email, etc. that interferes with our ability to serve other customers at our service.
Users notified of inappropriate usage, who fail to correct the situation will lose their hosting account with our service. In the event that this happens, Warp Speed Hosting is not required to prorate a refund for the remaining time left within a given account. In the event that a customer leaves the service for any reason, Warp Speed Hosting is under no obligation to keep their server name or net address on record. In addition, any data, files, or "web presence" materials will be removed from our local servers upon the termination of an account. On a related note, though our Corporate packages permit customers to use their accountants for binary or software archival purposes, this would not be allowed for Personal accountants. While our hosting customers are permitted to utilize CGI scripts as a component of their "web presence", we will not provide any answers or support to issues relating to acquiring, learning, programming, debugging, installing, and running CGI scripts. Our web hosting packages are intended for the user that establishes a service contract with our company. As a result, disk space, email boxes, and any part there in, may not be redistributed or resold to another individual or organization. We pride ourselves on providing a quality Web Hosting service at a very competitive prices, and in return ask that our current customers pay for this service in a timely fashion. Payment for the first time subscribers will need to be received prior to establishing any type of web presence on our local systems, and existing customers will be billed for their service on an automated basis, month to month. If a monthly payment is not received in a timely fashion, they will be notified, and their account maybe disabled until we have received payment for the next billing cycle. Customer agrees that solely failing to pay monthly subscription fees does not constitute termination of services. Warp Speed Hosting is not required to store, save, or transfer any data that remains within a customers web presence account after they have left the service or their subscribership has been disabled. In all cases, interpretations of Policy and final decisions and actions rest with Warp Speed Hosting services.
|18.CREDIT CARD / ELECTRONIC CHECK|
Customer agrees to have Warp Speed Hosting charge their credit card and/or debit card on a
monthly basis during their service period. Any electronic checks will be
charged for periods exceeding 3 month prepayment of service at a time.
Customer agrees that submitting credit card and/or debit card information,
providing checking accounts and routing numbers, or mailing / faxing / e-mailing a
signed check to Warp Speed Hosting gives Warp Speed Hosting the authorization to automatically debit any amount equal to or less than the outstanding balance then due from such a credit card, debit card and/or bank checking account automatically as they
are due and / or for any balances past due to Warp Speed Hosting. Customer
agrees that these charges will continue until any balance due remaining is paid in full. Customer understands and agrees that all balances owed to Warp Speed
Hosting under this agreement are valid charges. Customer agrees to pay Warp Speed Hosting an additional 3% convenience charge for any credit card charge(s) in excess of $300.00. Customer also agrees to pay Warp Speed Hosting $100.00 for each credit card charge disputed by Customer with their credit card and/or debit card issuing bank which Warp Speed Hosting ultimately prevails on.
