Terms and Conditions

The Services We Provide

In exchange for the fees you pay in advance, we will host your website on one or more of our servers, so long as you abide by the terms and conditions that are set out on this page, and in any other agreements that relate to the services we may provide to you. We will provide the services according to the specifications listed for the hosting package you select during the signup process. For clarity, on this page, the term "Services" refers to the web hosting and other services that we will provide to you and, if you are an Affiliate, the services we provide to you in connection with that program. The terms “You” , “customer” or “User” means you, the customer and any other user of our services; the terms "Z4site.com" or "us" or "we" refers to Z4site.com.

Permission to Host Your Content

For us to host your website, it is necessary for you to upload a copy of your content to our servers (while always one or more back-up copies for yourself). When you do this uploading, you are creating one or more copies of your content, Web site, web files and other data on our system (your “User Content”). By purchasing hosting or other services from us, you acknowledge that these copies are being made, and give us the permission (a license) to maintain these copies and make them available to users of the Internet. You are solely responsible for providing all of the content and other data that make up your website, and for keeping back-up copies of those items. Please note that even though you upload a copy of your content to our servers, you must always retain a back-up copy of your content, data bases and other web-files, as in effect from time to time, so you can reload them in the event of any technical issues, such as server problems, technical or system related issues, loss of that content from our servers, etc

Personal Information

When you place an order for our services, your personal information, including your credit card information, is transmitted via the use of Secure Socket Layer technology, the industry standard for encrypting sensitive information. We take your privacy very seriously, and as such, will not sell your personal information to third party (other than a company that may purchase Z4site.com), and will take reasonable steps to keep it from being disclosed to any third party. Read more in our Privacy Policy, below.

You consent to be called by a representative of www.z4site.com at the telephone number above and/or emailed important information about Z4site.com products and services.

Backups

We will make every attempt to retain nightly backups, which are available only for a short period in event of server failure. However, as with any data storage systems, backups can fail. We encourage you to perform your own backups on a periodic basis or sign up for our daily backup service.

Because the Services permit Users to electronically transmit or upload content directly to the User Web site, User shall be fully responsible for uploading all content to the User Web site and supplementing, modifying and updating the User Web site, including all back-ups.

Any file over 40MB in size will not be backed up onto our backup servers and in the event of server failure, will not be recoverable.
Z4site.com shall not be responsible for any damages to the User Content, the User Web site or other damages or any malfunctions or service interruptions caused by any failure of the User Content or any aspect of the User Web site.
User is solely responsible for making back-up copies of the User Web site and User Content.
Z4site.com does not maintain backup copies of any user content or materials, including without limitation any User Web sites, data bases, web files, or e-mail or other user data or information, or other content or materials. Z4site.com cannot guarantee that the contents of a Web site will never be deleted or corrupted, or that a back-up of a Web site will always be available. Users should always keep up-to-date copies of all such materials and content to a local computer and Z4site.com strongly suggest that Users regularly make additional copies (on tape, CD, multiple floppies, another desktop, or elsewhere) to ensure the availability of such files, content or materials. .

Any user who sends out spam will have their account terminated with or without notice. Please read www.z4site.com/mail-policy for our generalized mail policy.

Unlimited Bandwidth, Disk Usage, Email and FTP accounts and other Unlimited Resoures.

Z4site.com provides Users with bandwidth, disk space and other resources, such as e-mail, mysql databases, and/or file-transfer-protocol ("FTP") accounts, the amount of which is defined in Z4site.com's web pages describing the package of Services purchased at the time of purchase. In some cases, Z4site.com may not establish a specific amount of bandwidth, disk space and other resources, and refer to that as "Unlimited". In all cases, the Services are intended for normal use only, and any activity that results in excessive usage that is inconsistent with normal usage patterns is strictly prohibited. Z4site.com reserves the right to suspend, discontinue or delete the accounts of Users whose use of disk space, bandwidth or other resources results in or presents the risk of degradation of service to other customers, regardless of the amount of disk space, bandwidth or other resources included in the User's plan. User agrees that such usage shall not exceed the amounts set by Z4site.com for the Services purchased (the "Agreed Usage") and is additionally subject to normal usage guidelines established by Z4site.com as in effect from time to time. These allotments are optimized and dedicated towards serving the Content and User's active electronic mail services related solely to User's web hosting account(s) with Z4site.com.

Hosting space is intended for normal use only, and is limited to Web files, active e-mail and content of the hosted Web sites, not for storage (whether of media, e-mails, or other data). Hosting space further may not be used as offsite storage of electronic files, electronic mail or FTP hosts. You are responsible for removing any files, e-mails or other data which do not meet these requirements, and for adhering to any usage requirements or limits allocated to your account(s). Failure to do so may result in removal and deletion of such materials (including without limitation files and e-mails), and/or in discontinuation of your services or account, which actions we may take in our sole discretion.

Z4site.com may monitor User's use of bandwidth, disk usage and other resources. Z4site.com, in its sole discretion, shall have the right to take any corrective action if User's utilization of bandwidth, disk usage or other resources exceeds the Agreed Usage, or normal usage by our typical shared hosting customer, resource usage, or is used for other improper storage or usage. Such corrective action may include the assessment of additional charges, disconnection or discontinuance of any and all Services, removal or deletion of User's Web site, User Content, User's electronic mail and e-mail services and/or other materials and services or termination the User's account and of this Agreement, which actions may be taken in Z4site.com's sole and absolute discretion.

Unlimited Domains

Unlimited domains refers to subdomains, parked domains and add-on domains. In all cases (even those described as “unlimited”), the Services are intended for normal use only, and any activity that results in excessive usage that is inconsistent with normal usage patterns is strictly prohibited. Z4site.com reserves the right to suspend, discontinue or delete the accounts of Users whose use of unlimited subdomains, parked domains and add-on domains results in or presents the risk of degradation of service to other customers, regardless of the amount of domains included in the User's plan. User agrees that such usage shall not exceed the amounts set by Z4site.com for the Services purchased (the "Agreed Usage") and is additionally subject to normal usage guidelines established by Z4site.com as in effect from time to time. These allotments are optimized and dedicated towards serving the Content and User's active electronic mail services related solely to User's web hosting account(s) with Z4site.com.

If Z4site.com takes any such corrective action under this section, User shall not be entitled to a refund or credit of any fees paid prior to such action. User will comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations regarding User's Web site, User Content and/or User's electronic mail services, including use of bandwidth, disk usage and other resources and will use such services and resources only for lawful purposes. User may not utilize: the Services to copy material from third parties (including text, graphics, music, videos or other copyrightable material) without proper authorization; the Services to misappropriate or infringe the patents, copyrights, trademarks or other intellectual property rights of any third party; the Services to traffic in illegal drugs, gambling, adult content, obscene materials or any other products or services that are prohibited under applicable law; the Services to export encryption software to points outside the United States in violation of applicable export control laws; the Services to forge or misrepresent message headers, whether in whole or in part, to mask the originator of the message. If Z4site.com learns or discovers that User is violating any law related to User's Web site, User Content and/or User's electronic mail services, use of bandwidth, disk usage or other resources or Agreed Usage, Z4site.com may be obligated to or may in its discretion inform the necessary law enforcement and/or any related agency(ies) of such conduct and may provide such agency(ies) with information related to User, User's Web site, User Content and/or User's electronic mail.

User is responsible for complying with any usage requirements or limits for bandwidth, disk space or other resources, and monitoring such usage to ensure the Web site does not violate such requirements or exceed normal usage limits, Agreed Usage, or other limits allocated for the account(s) and otherwise complies with this Agreement. Z4site.com will use commercially reasonable efforts to e-mail Users who are at or near their utilization limits, but Z4site.com does not take responsibility if e-mail notification(s) is not received by the User. Z4site.com reserves the right to discontinue service through the beginning of the next month for your account in the event that it exceeds the any such allotment.

Resource Usage

User may not:

Use 25% or more of system resources for longer than 90 seconds. There are numerous activities that could cause such problems; these include: CGI scripts, FTP, PHP, HTTP, etc.

Run stand-alone, unattended server-side processes at any point in time on the server. This includes any and all daemons, such as IRCD.

Run any type of web spider or indexer (including Google Cash / AdSpy) on shared servers.

Run any software that interfaces with an IRC (Internet Relay Chat) network.

Run any bit torrent application, tracker, or client. You may link to legal torrents off-site, but may not host or store them on our shared servers.

Participate in any file-sharing/peer-to-peer activities

Run any gaming servers such as counter-strike, half-life, battlefield1942, etc

Run cron entries with intervals of less than 15 minutes

When using PHP include functions for including a local file, include the local file rather than the URL. Instead of include("http://yourdomain.com/include.php") use include("include.php")

While our shared services are suitable for the bulk of our customers, there comes a time for some websites when they are better suited for a larger plan, which allows for more dedicated CPU and memory resources. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to discontinue service to any customer with a website or other hosted data that takes up more than 10% of the server resources and/or 10% of the server's CPU. This means that if your website is found to be utilizing more than 10% of the CPU and memory of the service, we reserve the right to take your site offline. If this becomes necessary, you can either upgrade your hosting package, or request a pro-rated refund of the amounts you have paid in advance for the services. Due to the severity of this, and our ability to act quickly to correct these situations to avoid server issues, we will do everything reasonably feasible to provide you with a warning prior to taking your site offline, but we accept no obligation to do so.

INODES

The use of more than 50,000 inodes on any shared account may potentially result in suspension. Accounts found to be exceeding the 50,000 inode limit will automatically be removed from our backup system to avoid overusage. Every file (a webpage, image file, email, etc) on your account uses up 1 inode. Sites that slightly exceed our inode limits are unlikely to be suspended; however, accounts that constantly create and delete large numbers of files on a regular basis, have hundreds of thousands of files, or cause file system damage may be flagged for review and/or suspension. Over time, tens of thousands of messages (or more) build up, eventually pushing the account past our inode limit. To disable your default mailbox, login to cPanel and choose "Mail", then "Default Address", "Set Default Address", and then type in: :fail: No such user here

When the Services Will be Available

We will attempt to provide the services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for as long as you have paid for them. Sometimes, however, for a number of reasons, the services may be unavailable to you. You must recognize and acknowledge that due to the nature of web hosting technology, occasional unavailability of the services cannot be avoided. Sometimes there are equipment malfunctions. At other times we undertake periodic maintenance procedures or repairs. Still other times, there are causes beyond our control like power failures, interruption or failure of telecommunication or digital transmission links, hostile network attacks, network traffic and other occurrences. We have not promised to provide you with uninterrupted service.

Refund Policy


Please note: Any account services such as Hosting, additional domain registration are non-refundable.. Z4site.com also reserves the right to cancel your account with 72 hours’ notice should an event occur in which proper evidence exists that a customer was exceptionally rude or vulgar in communications with our staff.

Disclaimer of Warranties

You may have noticed that up to this point these terms of service have been kind of easy to read and understand. But our lawyers tell us that this section, dealing in the disclaimer of warranties, has to retain its legalese style. Sorry about that. Z4site.com EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. SERVICES ARE PROVIDED ON AN "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS. Z4site.com MAKES NO WARRANTY THAT ITS SERVICES WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS, OR THAT THE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, SECURE, OR ERROR FREE, OR THAT DEFECTS WILL BE CORRECTED. Z4site.com DOES NOT WARRANT, NOR MAKE ANY REPRESENTATIONS REGARDING THE USE, OR RESULTS OF, ANY OF THE SERVICES IT PROVIDES, IN TERMS OF THEIR CORRECTNESS, ACCURACY, RELIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE. Some jurisdictions do not allow the disclaimer of implied warranties, in which event that foregoing disclaimer may not apply to you.

Limitation of Liability

Here is another section that has to retain its legalese. Simply stated, what this section is saying is that if something goes wrong, Z4site.com cannot be held liable for it. IN NO EVENT SHALL Z4site.com BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY OTHER PERSON FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOSS OF PROFIT OR GOODWILL, FOR ANY MATTER, WHETHER SUCH LIABILITY IS ASSERTED ON THE BASIS OF CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), BREACH OF WARRANTIES, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ANY BREACH OF THIS AGREEMENT OR ITS INCORPORATED AGREEMENTS AND POLICIES, YOUR INABILITY TO USE THE SOFTWARE OR SERVICES, YOUR LOSS OF DATA OR FILES OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF Z4site.com HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. Some states may not allow such a broad exclusion or limitation on liability for damages as contained in these terms of services. In those states, our liability is limited to the full extent permitted by law. You agree that in no event shall our maximum aggregate liability exceed the total amount paid by you for a 3-month period for the services in dispute purchased from us, or, in the event of liability of Z4site.com due to your enrollment in the affiliate program.

Terms Applicable to Affiliates

If you become an affiliate of Z4site.com the following terms apply to you.

Our Affiliate Network

To participate as an affiliate, you are required to complete an affiliate application located at www.z4site.com/affiliates. The application will be evaluated, and we will notify you in a reasonable time whether your application has been accepted. At our discretion, we may decide for any reason that your site cannot participate in our network. If you are a U.S. resident, we will require that you provide us with your Social Security Number or Tax ID number. We do not require this information for international affiliates.

How it Works

We provide our affiliates with a unique tracking code. This code must be placed in the HTML of your website and when clicked on will direct visitors to your site to z4site.com or one of our other websites. If the visitor to your site places an order in the following 365 days from the same computer (cookie tracking) or the same Internet connection (ip tracking), our automated system will track the sale and automatically credit your account.

In order for automated tracking to be successful the visitor must have clicked on your tracking pixel, have cookies and JavaScript enabled in their browser, not clear cookies or switch Internet Service Providers before placing your order. If the automated tracking fails for any reason and you wish to earn commission for this referral you must contact Z4site.com Affiliate Support at affiliates [at] z4site.com. When you contact us, please include the domain name, full name, and e-mail address of the customer you referred plus your unique affiliate URL so we may locate your account. The date and time of the order would also be helpful. Whether or not you are able to provide this specific information there is no guarantee we will be able to issue a credit to your account. We will investigate any missed commissions to the best of our ability and if our investigation concludes in your favor then account credit (applicable to any Z4site.com account) may be offered instead of the sum of 20%.

Each Affiliate is required to submit a W8/W9 tax form before Z4site.com will issue any Commission Fees. You are responsible for the payment of all taxes related to the commissions you earn under this Agreement.

Commissions

Commissions will be paid to affiliates based on successful referrals. A successful referral, or sale, is defined as: a non-fraudulent, active for a period of thirty (30) days, not cancelled web hosting client who has paid for services in full and has been referred to us through your affiliate tracking link.

Commission may not be paid for a Referred Customer that has transferred from any of our partners or subsidiaries. Affiliates are NOT permitted to offer coupon codes except those that are automatically entered on the Z4site.com sign up page i.e "BestHosts2008". If a coupon code is entered within an order of a referral then credit for the sale may not be issued.

Furthermore, Affiliates are not permitted to provide refunds or credits to their customers and Z4site.com will not pay commission if the Referred Customer has joined a business-opportunity program that is managed or participated in by the Affiliate.

There is a $25 (one signup) minimum threshold for Commission payments.

Because of the high frequency of credit card fraud and cancellation rates, we reserve the right to hold commissions for up to 60 days for verification. We also reserve the right to cancel commissions in the event that we are unable to collect funds, the order is fraudulent, the customer cancels within the first 30 days, or if we learn that the commission was earned improperly for any other reason.

There are two pay periods during every month. Pay periods are two weeks long. The first pay period is from the 1st of the month until the 15th. The second is from the 16th of the month to the last day of the month. Z4site.com will process affiliate commissions for the past month period before this on these dates and issue payments. For example: On January 5th you earn $500 via the Z4site.com Affiliate Programs. The commission becomes mature 30 days after we track it, or in this case on February 5th. The next pay date is February 16th, so on February 16th you would be paid for these referrals. This time frame allows us to evaluate every order and assess its validity. In the event we are unable to verify the order during this time frame, we may, at our sole discretion, hold your commission or cancel the order. Cancelled commissions will not be reinstated.

Check payments will only be reissued within 120 days of original issue date in the case of a lost check or stop-payment request. After 120 days, the payment will be voided. Check cancellation fees may be applied.

It is your responsibility to keep your contact information up-to-date including you; tax identification number, email, postal address and any other information that may impact Z4site.com’s ability to contact you or send your commission payment.

Z4site.com is not responsible for any third-party fees charged by PayPal, bank or other financial institute used to receive Affiliate Commission Fees.

Base Commissions

Commission rates are posted on www.z4site.com/affiliates and will be updated from time to time. If you have received a custom commission from us in exchange for a large number of referrals, then Z4site.com may modify your account settings to reflect this. We consider custom commissions for any affiliate who is able to send five (5) or more new customers per month. Our various programs are managed by various affiliate managers, which can be found at www.z4site.com/affiliates.

E-mails and Publicity

Affiliates shall not create, publish, transmit or distribute, under any circumstances, any bulk electronic mail messages (also known as "SPAM").

Trademarks
