If your shared server has a physical downtime that is not within the 99.9% uptime you may receive one month of credit on your account. Approval of the credit is at the discretion of OrangeWebsite dependent upon justification provided. Third party monitoring service reports may not be used for justification due to a variety of factors including the monitor's network capacity/transit availability. The uptime of the server is defined as the reported uptime from the operating system and the Apache Web Server which may differ from the uptime reported by other individual services. To request a credit, please contact email@example.com with justification. All requests must be made in writing via email. Uptime guarantees only apply to shared solutions. Dedicated servers and VPSs are covered by a network guarantee in which the credit is prorated for the amount of time the server is down which is not related to our uptime guarantee.
11.) Reseller: Client Responsibility
OrangeWebsite do not offer services for reseller. However if you wish to use our servers for reselling purposes, must OrangeWebsite be informed about it. OrangeWebsite does not provide support to any clients that have not ordered the service directly from us. If a reseller's client contacts us, we reserve the right to place the client account on hold until the reseller can assume their responsibility for their client. All support requests must be made by the reseller on their clients' behalf for security purposes. Resellers are also responsible for all content stored or transmitted under their reseller account and the actions of their clients'. OrangeWebsite will hold any reseller responsible for any of their clients actions that violate the law or the terms of service.

Shared and VPS accounts may not resell web hosting to other people, if you wish to resell hosting you must use dedicated account.
11.1) VPS Non-Authenticated SMTP
All virtual servers have port 25 (non-authenticated) smtp blocked. All servers requiring this port to be enabled, need to be fullfil any of the following criteria:
and a valid reason is given as to why needed. This rule is in place to prevent abusive spoofing behavior on the network. We suggest anyone with legitimate use to send email to utilize secure smtp services such as Sendgrid or SendLayer. Refunds are not given on the basis of the server not having this port enabled as there are good alternatives available for the legitimate end-user.
13.) Dedicated Servers
Dedicated servers are delivered with SSH access. We don't store server login credentials anywhere in our system, thus it is entirely client's responsibility make sure the credentials are saved in a secure place on their behalf. Servers come with pre-installed OS and control panel that customer can chooses when ordering the service.
If no additional backup service is ordered, dedicated servers are NOT backed up by us and it is the responsibility of the client to maintain backups or have a solution for this. You may purchase an additional hard drive and maintain backups to it as the simplest solution. Additional hard drives may be ordered within the initial order or later on by contacting us firstname.lastname@example.org. We guarantee 100% network uptime on dedicated servers.
In case we suspect violation of these terms, we try to consult at first with our client to solve the problem before suspending the server. Continuous violations will lead to service suspension.
We respect our clients' privacy and never access their servers without up front permission! This could be in example if the client authorizes us to install a third party software for him.
14.) Price Change
We reserve the right to change prices listed on OrangeWebsite.com, and the right to increase the amount of resources given to plans at any time.
15.) DDoS Protection Service
We guarantee that our DDoS protection plans will protect you against any types of service exhaustion attacks under the specified limits (Gbps/Kpps) given for each protection plan. Should we not be able to mitigate the attack or provide alternative solution, we will refund your already paid amount for the DDoS protection plan for that month. As we sell our DDoS mitigation services with really low price, there is a definite upgrade fee charged in case the protection limits are reached, in order to retain access to your service. In example if you pay for "Low Risk Protection" which protects you for attacks under 10Gb/s but you get hit with attack with magnitude of 15Gb/s, your IP will be nullrouted during the attack. You will have an option to upgrade your service to a higher protection with one time upgrade fee of 2900 EUR. This fee is non-refundable and non-negotiable. Therefore with any reputable website or crucial system, it is advised to use "High Risk Protection" only. 2900 EUR upgrade fee does not apply when upgrading from "High Risk Protection" to a higher plan.
