4) Reselling of Services

Customers may resell all of our services.
Customers are directly responsible for all services they/we provide to their clients. Sublime Web Hosting will not support your end users directly. We are not liable to them or you for any damages they or you may suffer.

5) Contract Period

Unless otherwise stated the contract period is on a monthly bases, termination can occur at any point during the month, There is no cancellation notification period, hence cancellation will happen on the day of the request, provided all amounts owed to us are paid. If there is still an outstanding amount, the account will continue to be billed until the account is settled and the cancellation request is resent and accepted by Sublime Web Hosting.

6) High resource use policy

Resources are defined as bandwidth, processor utilization, memory, or disk space.

Sublime Web Hosting may implement the following policy to its sole discretion:

When a website is found to be monopolising the resources available, Sublime Web Hosting reserves the right to suspend that site immediately. This policy is only implemented in extreme circumstances and is intended to prevent the misuse of our servers. Customers may be offered an option whereby Sublime Web Hosting continues hosting the website for an additional fee or the client may choose to upgrade to a (semi-)dedicated plan.

Uploads via scripting languages
We limit uploads made via scripting languages - to a maximum of 20 MB per file.

Cron jobs may have an interval of no less than 15 minutes.

7) Payment policies

All accounts are set up on a prepay basis. Although Sublime Web Hosting reserves the right to change prices of accounts or services at any time, all pricing is guaranteed for the period of prepayment. Payment is due every 1, 3, 6 or 12 months depending on the hosting plan you choose. Payment must be made on the date of the invoice. Customers will automatically be charged again at the end of their prepay period unless closure / cancellation notification has already been given via confirmed and acceptance via an email notification to us.

In situations wherea credit card payment is declined Sublime Web Hosting will immediately suspend the facility to purchase services online until the outstanding charge is processed successfully. In addition, Sublime Web Hosting reserves the right to suspend other services until the outstanding debt is cleared. The customer is responsible for all money owed on the account from the time it was established to the time the customer sends an accepted written cancellation request (refer to "Contract Period" above).

Should your account fall into arrears (5 days and over) we will suspend the accounts you have with us. A re-establishment fee of R50 will be charged to have your website(s) unsuspended once full payment has been made.

No bills or invoices will be sent by regular mail. All invoices will be sent directly to customers via email shortly after the online purchase has been made.

8) Domain registrations

The client is welcome to register domains by themselves and have them hosted with us.

If a domain is registered through us: we will be responsible for issuing an invoice for the registration and renewal of the domain. In the case of co.za domains, we invoice you for the domain, you are to pay us directly for this registration or renewal.

All domains registered by us are registered on behalf of the client and will be the property of the client provided their account is in good standing. We reserve the right to 1) refuse the transferal of a domain or 2) delete the domain from the registrar should your account be in arrears and be deleted from our system.

An indication of a domain name being available during the order process is no guarantee that it will be secured for the client. As there is no guarantee that the domain checking script is accurate due to variations in DNS records, or the domain name may be registered by another party between the time of checking and our request going through to the registrar.

9) Accounts on servers

If an account is setup on a server, and the domain is not registered - we reserve the right to remove the account from a server within the dns cluster in order to set it up, should we get a request to do so by a client who is registering the domain through us. This would normally apply to new domain registrations; as our system won't allow us to setup accounts if the same domain name exists on another server within our dns cluster.
