TERMS & CONDITIONS
These Terms and Conditions apply to our Paid Domain Name Service only.
Note: Your Credit Card will be billed as "Web Services". Credit card payments are only for non-nigerian based clients.
1. AGREEMENT. In this Web Hosting Service Agreement ("Agreement") "you" and "your" refer to each customer, "we", us" and "our" refer to KEKDomains. "Services" refers to the services provided by us, including our web hosting services. This Agreement explains our obligations to you, and explains your obligations to us for various Services. By selecting our Services you have agreed to establish an account with us for such Services. When you use your account or permit someone else to use it to purchase or otherwise acquire access to additional Services or to cancel your Services (even if we were not notified of such authorization), this Agreement covers such services or actions. By using the Services under this Agreement, you acknowledge that you have read and agree to be bound by all terms and conditions of this Agreement and any pertinent rules or policies that are or may be published by us.
2. FEES, PAYMENTS AND BILLING POLICIES. As consideration for the services you have selected, you agree to pay us the applicable service fees. All fees payable hereunder are non-refundable except those fees covered by the "30/60 Day Money Back Guarantee". As further consideration for the Services, you agree to: (1) provide certain current, complete and accurate information about you as required by the registration process and (2) maintain and update this information as needed to keep it current, complete and accurate. All such information shall be referred to as account information ("Account Information"). You hereby grant us the right to disclose to third parties as needed to maintain your services. By submitting to this Agreement, you represent that the statements you have made in are true and you will not use our Services for any unlawful purpose.
2a. FEES and PAYMENTS. All fees are payable in US Dollars. All payments are due on your account's Anniversary Date (See Section 2b, "Billing Cycle", for more information). The following credit cards are accepted: Visa, MasterCard & American Express. If you provide us with your credit or debit card information, you authorize KEKDomains to automatically charge the card listed in your account for any fees due on your account. Recurring fees will be charged to the credit or debit card number listed in your account until you cancel your account in accordance with our cancellation policy. All charges made to your credit card will be posted from "Web Services" on your credit card statements. You are responsible for keeping updated credit or debit card information in your account. This includes but is not limited to credit card numbers, expiration dates, or billing address.
2b. BILLING CYCLE. All payments are due on your account's Anniversary Date. Your account's Anniversary Date is the date that your account was created. Your account will be billed according to the billing cycle chosen when you purchased your service(s). KEKDomains offers three billing cycles: Monthly (every month), Quarterly (every 3 months) or Yearly (every 12 months). If you have purchased a package that is billed monthly your credit card will be charged every month. If you have purchased a package that is billed quarterly your credit card will be charged every three months. If you have purchased a package that is billing yearly your credit card will be charged every year on the Anniversary Date. Any subsequent recurring charges will be billed to your credit card on that date. Amounts will be prorated to align your charges with your Anniversary Date.
2c. CANCELLATION POLICY. Services will automatically renew until a service is cancelled. If you do not wish to renew your Monthly, Quarterly or Annual Service agreement you must cancel your account by entering a ticket to our Customer Service department. All cancellations must be requested via a ticket by selecting the option "Cancellation" when using our ticketing system. A cancellation refers to the removal of user materials from our systems and the deactivation of services. You will be required to pay any outstanding charges owed. Please be aware that there are no pro-rated refunds after the first 30 days of service regardless of billing cycle. Domain Name Registrations CANNOT be cancelled. As the purchaser of the Domain Name you are the Domain Name's owner until the term of the Domain Name's registration has expired. KEKDomains will not automatically cancel services for problems related to registrar transfers, non-usage, your ISP, or any other issues not directly related to KEKDomains' services. KEKDomains reserves the right to cancel any account at any time without notice, for any reason KEKDomains deems appropriate.
2d. BILLING DISPUTES AND BANK CHARGE BACKS. All Bank Disputes and Bank Issued Charge Backs result in the complete cancellation of your account. All Bank Disputes and Charge Backs are reported to the issuer's Credit Agency. If a Charge Back is made on domain name registration or renewal fees, you forfeit all ownership and administrator rights to the domain name(s). In the event that a Charge Back was made in error, you will be charged a $40.00 reinstatement fee for each credit card charge back received by KEKDomains before your services and/or domain name will be reactivated.
2e. SERVICE CHANGES. You are allowed to change your Web Site Hosting package once a month. An example of changing your service means moving from an from Monthly billing to Yearly billing. Additional request will required a setup fee based on the new package chosen.
2f. 30 DAY MONEY BACK GUARANTEE. Most services offered by KEKDomains carry a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee. If you are not completely satisfied with our services, you will receive a full refund during the first 30 days after the service was added. The following fees do not qualify for the 30 Day Money Back Guarantee: domain name registrations, domain name renewals, file transfer (bandwidth) overage fees, and setup fees.
2g. BILLING/PRICE CHANGES. KEKDomains reserves the right to change billing prices and policies at any time without notice.
2h. BILLING FOR ADDITIONAL FILE TRANSFERS. KEKDomains automatically bills customers for excess file transfer ("bandwidth") usage. Customers are allocated a set amount of file transfer with their hosting service depending on the package level purchased. If you exceed the amount of file transfer you receive as part of your package you will be billed $0.01 per MB over quota. This charge is incurred without notification. If you are billed monthly for our services the overage charge will be attached to your monthly credit card charge. If you are billed yearly for our services the overage will be billed to your credit card the month following your overage. The overage is calculated by monitoring the amount and size of the files transferred from your account. These charges are made at the sole discretion of KEKDomains and are non disputable.
