Terms of Service
DK Web Solutions agrees to furnish services to the Subscriber, subject to the following TOS (Terms of Service).
Disclosure to Law Enforcement: The TOS specifically prohibits the use of our service for illegal activities. Therefore, Subscriber agrees that the Company may disclose any and all subscriber information including assigned IP numbers, account history, account use, etc. to any law enforcement agent who makes a written request without further consent or notification to the Subscriber. In addition DK Web Solutions shall have the right to terminate all service set forth in this Agreement.
Adult hosting is allowed, no warez no child pornography will be tolerated!! Anything that is legal can be hosted.
Payments and Fees: Service will be interrupted on accounts that reach 5 days past due. Accounts that are not collectable by DK Web Solutions may be turned over to an outside collection agency for collection. If your account is turned over for collection, you agree to pay the company a "Processing and Collection" Fee of not less than $50 nor more than $150. If you desire to cancel your account, please follow the proper procedure to do this as outlined in this TOS.
Failure to Pay: The Company may temporarily deny service or terminate this Agreement upon the failure of Subscriber to pay charges when due. Such termination or denial will not relieve Subscriber of responsibility for the payment of all accrued charges, plus reasonable interest and any collection fees.
Account Cancellation: All requests for canceling accounts must be made at least 7 days before next billing cycle. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to cancel account.
Subscriber acknowledges that the service provided is of such a nature that service can be interrupted for many reasons other than the negligence of the company and that damages resulting from any interruption of service are difficult to ascertain. Therefore, subscriber agrees that the company shall not be liable for any damages arising from such causes beyond the direct and exclusive control of the company. Subscriber further acknowledges that the company's liability for its own negligence may not in any event exceed an amount equivalent to charges payable by subscriber for services during the period damages occurred. In no event shall the company be liable for any special or consequential damages, loss or injury.
New Domain Accounts: All new web hosting accounts involving new domains will be set up and entered into our DNS servers within 1 business day. Due to unforeseen complications, however, this process may sometimes require up to 2 business days.
Transfer of Domains: If you select transfer domain it DOES NOT mean you will switch from your current registrar to ours. It means you will be using a domain you have registered elsewhere and will transfer the hosting services. You will need to go to your registrar and point your domain to the server address you receive when you activate your account.
