HOMEBODY HOSTING WEB HOSTING AGREEMENT (Donwload: Service Agreement PDF)
THIS WEB SPACE RENTAL AGREEMENT (“Agreement”) is hereby entered into between HomeBodyHosting.com and ___________________________ (Customer) on the following terms and conditions:
The HomeBodyHosting.com Web Space Rental Service (the “Service”) consists of services provided to allow the Customer to offer content on the Internet. These services include space on HomeBodyHosting.com’s Internet server to store HTML and related multimedia documents and files, the ability to maintain these pages through FTP (“File Transfer Protocol”) accounts, and Email accounts. The terms and conditions of this agreement and any rules and prices published on HomeBodyHosting.com’s Web Site (http://www. HomeBodyHosting.com) constitute the entire and only agreement (collectively, the” Service Agreement”) between HomeBodyHosting.com and the Customer (hereby defined as one who has an account with HomeBodyHosting.com for the Service, including Customer’s designated users with respect to the Service) and supersede all other communications and agreements with regard to the subject matter hereof.
We will setup your account after we have received payment and we and/or our payment partner(s) have screened the order(s) in case of fraud. It is your responsibility to provide us with an Email address which is not @ the domain(s) you are signing up under. If there is ever an abuse issue or we need to contact you, the primary Email address on file will be used for this purpose. It is your responsibility to ensure the Email address on file is current or up to date at all times. If you have a domain name registered with HomeBodyHosting, it is your responsibility to ensure that the contact information for your domain account and your actual domain name(s) is correct and up-to-date. HomeBodyHosting is not responsible for a lapsed registration due to outdated contact information being associated with the domain. If you need to verify or change this information, you should contact our sales team via Email. Providing false contact information of any kind may result in the termination of your account. In dedicated server purchases or high risk transactions, it will be necessary to provide government issued identification and possibly a scan of the credit card used for the purchase. If you fail to meet these requirements, the order may be considered fraudulent in nature and be denied. Our transfers team will make every effort to help you move your site to us. However, transfers are provided as a courtesy service, and we can not make guarantees regarding the availability, possibility, or time required to complete an account transfer. Each hosting company is configured differently, and some hosting platforms save data in an incompatible or proprietary format, which may make it extremely difficult if not impossible to migrate some or all account data. We will try our best, but in some cases we may be unable to assist you in a transfer of data from an old host. The free transfer services are available for 30 days from your sign up date. Transfers outside of the 30 day free period will incur a charge; please contact a member of the transfers department with specific details to receive a price quote.

Depending upon the nature and severity of any abuses, the Customer may receive an E-mail warning detailing the nature of the abuse. If the abuse of services is not terminated within two (2) days, a certified letter will be sent to the customer formally requesting termination of the stated abuse. Customer then must terminate stated abuse within two (2) days, otherwise the Service Agreement will be terminated. Any reconnection of a terminated account will require a reconnection fee.
lf, in HomeBodyHosting.com’s sole discretion, the nature and severity of any abuses is severe enough, HomeBodyHosting.com may terminate the Service Agreement immediately without written notification.

If a weak password is used, your account may be suspended until you agree to use a more secure password. Audits may be done to prevent weak passwords from being used.

HomeBody Hosting services, including all related equipment, networks and network devices are provided only for authorized customer use. HomeBody Hosting systems may be monitored for all lawful purposes, including to ensure that use is authorized, for management of the system, to facilitate protection against unauthorized access, and to verify security procedures, survivability, and operational security. During monitoring, information may be examined, recorded, copied and used for authorized purposes. Use of HomeBody Hosting system(s) constitutes consent to monitoring for these purposes. Any account found connecting to a third party network or system without authorization from the third party is subject to suspension. Access to networks or systems outside of your direct control must be with expressed written consent from the third party. HomeBodyHosting.com may, at its discretion, request and require documentation to prove access to a third party network or system is authorized, We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone. Any material that, in our judgment, is obscene, threatening, illegal, or violates our terms of service in any manner may be removed from our servers (or otherwise disabled), with or without notice. Failure to respond to Email from our abuse department within 48 hours may result in the suspension or termination of your services. All abuse issues must be dealt with via troubleticket/Email and will have a response within 48 hours. Sites hosted on HomeBodyHosting.com’s service(s) are regulated only by U.S. law. Given this fact, and pursuant to Section 230(c) of the Communications Decency Act, we do not remove allegedly defamatory material from domains hosted on our service(s). The only exception to this rule is if the material has been found to be defamatory by a court, as evidenced by a court order. HomeBodyHosting.com is not in a position to investigate and validate or invalidate the veracity of individual defamation claims, which is why we rely on the legal system and courts to determine whether or not material is indeed considered defamatory. In any case in which a court order indicates material is defamatory, libelous, or slanderous in nature; we will disable access to the material. Similarly, in any case in which a US Court has placed an injunction against specified content or material; we will comply and remove or disable access to the material in question. The language of Section 230(c) of the Communications Decency Act fundamentally states that Internet services providers like HomeBodyHosting.com and many of HomeBodyHosting.com’s other web hosting services and brands are republishers and not the publisher of content. Our service merely provides a hosting platform and space on which to host content, and any creation or publication of content on our services is the sole responsibility of the third-party user which creates or publishes the content. Therefore, HomeBodyHosting.com should not be held liable for any allegedly defamatory, offensive or harassing content published on sites hosted under HomeBodyHosting.com’s web hosting service(s). If in doubt regarding the acceptability of your site or service, please contact us at abuse@HomeBodyHosting.com and we will be happy to assist you.
