Under no circumstances can GHI be held responsible should any search engine decide to change their search engine structures or policies causing your web site placement to be removed or downgrades; however do not for see any changes that are imminent.
- The free web site hosting and domain name offer only applies to clients that have been agreed by GHI terms and conditions and whom can terminate this agreement at any such time should they choose so with justified cause. This applies to both parties.
- Each website hosting plan that is agreed by GHI will be placed on a Linux server. Linux hosting is only available for the free domain hosting offer, however should the client require a windows or other hosting platform this can be arranged as an option with an additional charges agreed before by both parties.
- Each web site hosted on a Linux server must not exceed a maximum of the agreed amount in the pricing plan advertised which is allocated, however should the client require additional extra web hosting space or bandwidth this can be made available on larger plans or servers at additional cost.
- Each client’s website will have its own control panel access (CPanel) with web mail addresses and MYSQL database unless otherwise stated in the price plan package advertised on our website. GHI reserves the right to refuse access to CPanel from a client or IP address as it see appropriate to protect our server from harms way.
- If the client has a current website it must be currently hosted on a Linux server otherwise GHI cannot offer free web and domain hosting, however alternative window servers are made available which would be compatible with the client’s current website coding, as a few examples such as ASP or .NET.
- If the client has a current website GHI will need full access through ftp to CPanel to obtain and catch all file data necessary to transfer the website over. GHI cannot be held responsible for any loss or damage to such files unless it can be proven as negligence.
- In such cases where CMS (controlled management systems) or external email servers are being used GHI has the right to decline from hosting as special requirements and mail management systems will need to be looked at very closely to find a suitable compatibility. CMS website’s which have a fixed IP address may need further investigation before hosting is implemented!
- GHI cannot be held responsible in any way should the client fails to inform if any special requirements are currently being used for hosting their website before transfer. All relevant requirements must be put in writing by email prior and confirmed before hosting accounts are setup.
- The free one year domain name purchased for the client on behalf of GHI can start with any of these following extensions only .com, .co.uk, .net, .org, .biz, .info, .eu, .mobi, .us, however if other extension are required by the client this can be arranged with an addition charge agreed prior to domain registration.
- The domain name will be registered, and after the free one year of registration expires the client will be given the option to renew the domain name that will include a renewal registration fee.
- If the client already owns the domain name GHI will require the client to change the current domain name tag; name server (NS) DNS. This will need to be done by the current domain name registrar and GHI will not be responsible for any costs or outstanding debt involved in this transaction including downtime with the domains current registrar.
- GHI recommends that any current hosted domains are hosted to the same registrar as our own servers or Godaddy.com. GHI cannot in any way be held responsible for any website downtime of the domain if we do not have management for the domain name registrar or have access to the domain DNS and Name Server settings.
- Each client that takes the free web domain offer, will have full access to their own control panel with unlimited support, however should the client make any changes to setting stopping functionality of their website, GHI will charge to rectify the issues if necessary.
