Terms of Service
Clients acknowledge that the service provided is of such a nature that service can be interrupted for many reasons other than the negligence of Yohost and that damages resulting from any interruption of service are difficult to ascertain. Therefore, clients agree that Yohost shall not be liable for any damages arising from such causes beyond the direct and exclusive control of Yohost.
Subscriber further acknowledges that Yohost’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 Yohost be held liable for any special or consequential damages, loss or injury.
You agree to use all Yohost services and facilities at your own risk. Yohost specifically disclaims all warranties of merchant ability and fitness for a particular purpose. In no event shall Yohost be liable for any loss, or loss of data, or other commercial damage, including but not limited to special, incidental, consequential or other damages. Clients agree that they shall defend, indemnify, save and hold Yohost harmless from any and all demands, liabilities, losses, costs and claims, including reasonable attorney’s fees asserted against Yohost, its agents, its customers, officers and employees, that may arise or result from any service provided, performed, agreed to be performed or any product sold by its customers, its agents, employees or assigns. Clients agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Yohost against liabilities arising out of any injury to person or property caused by any products sold or otherwise distributed in connection with Yohost’s network.
Yohost reserves the right to intervene with any website/data hosted on its servers/network in the interest of its clients. Any material supplied/hosted by a client that is infringing or allegedly infringing on the proprietary rights of a third party copyright owner are subject to removal from Yohost’s servers/network. Yohost shall be the sole judge of what violates this policy.
At this time, we bill monthly, quarterly, semi-annually and annually, depending upon the plan. We provide a 7-day money-back (refund) guarantee. Each refund request must be submitted using our support ticket system located at my.Yohost.co.za. Each refund request is evaluated on a case by case basis – depending on the situation, no refund, full refund or partial refund will be issued. If a refund is not issued, an account credit may be issued. Yohost will only issue a refund or credit within 7 days after the initial sign up date of the service. Therefore, Yohost retains the right to grant or deny any refund or credit request – not affected by date. (For some special offers, the money-back guarantee day will be varied; Domain Name registration/transfer fee(s) are non-refundable. Some payments are non-refundable but may receive an account credit. To prevent abuse, only a client’s first invoice is eligible for a refund unless stated otherwise.
We accept Visa, Master Card and PayPal. All services are setup, free of any fees or charges. Clients are encouraged to pay by Payfast as it is the easiest way to handle payments at this time. There are no contract periods but for each successive period, your contract is automatically renewed unless we are notified otherwise.
Yohost offers each client with a 99.9% uptime guarantee. In the event that a 99.9% uptime (measured per month) is not met, clients will be eligible to receive a credit(s) based on the situation and amount of downtime. However credit(s) may not be provided for certain events such as: DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks, scheduled maintenance, reboots, hardware replacements and null-routes. In order to receive a “compensation” credit, the client must do so by making a request by opening a billing ticket or by emailing support.
Yohost’s network is DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) protected, we cannot guarantee any level/type of protection. We are often able to protect against various types of attacks up to 20Gbps. Attacks that are larger than this will result in the target IP address being null-routed. We are not responsible for any downtime or performance decreases caused by DDoS attacks.
