SIXU SHARED HOSTING TERMS OF SERVICE

Sixu, L.L.C., (hereinafter referred to as “Sixu”) provides web hosting to people all around the world. We have the responsibility to protect each client and provide them with the best service possible. The following guidelines were designed to ensure that our services remain of the utmost quality. Please read very carefully before ordering and/or using Sixu services.

SIXU SERVICE AGREEMENT

The Sixu Service Agreement is a separate agreement between Sixu and all customers. Please make sure you are in agreement with the following points and conditions, as well as our service agreement (in its entirety) before signing up for or using Sixu’s services. Contact our sales department for any clarifications.

END USER AGREEMENT

Customers may not sublease, sub host, or give away control of any portion of their Sixu, space and/or resources (including, but not limited to, e-mail accounts, storage space, ftp accounts, etc.), unless otherwise stated on our website.

CONTENT

All services provided by Sixu may be used for lawful purposes only. Transmission, storage, or presentation of any information, data or material in violation of any United States Federal, State or City law is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to: copyrighted material, material we judge to be threatening or obscene, or material protected by trade secret and other statue. The subscriber agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Sixu from any claims resulting from the use of the service which damages the subscriber or any other party.

Note: Pornography and sex-related merchandising are prohibited on any Sixu server. This includes sites that may infer sexual content, or Link to adult content elsewhere. This is also true for sites that promote any illegal activity or content that may be damaging to Sixu servers or any other server on the internet. Links to such materials are also prohibited.
Examples of non-acceptable content or links

* Pirated software
* Bulk Email related products
* Pornography/Nudity/Adult Content
* Hacking/cracking related websites
* Warez and/or copyrighted MP3s
* Illegal material or material that is against public policy
* Sites containing or linking to material that may be considered detrimental to the public health, safety, or welfare. (Such as, but not limited to: Anarchists Cookbook, bomb making, weapon information, or anything else that may be considered detrimental or illegal.)

Sixu will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision, and reserves the right to deactivate and remove any site at any time for any reason without refund!

COPYRIGHT VIOLATIONS

Sixu will respond to all reports of infringement that are formatted in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and any other applicable copyright laws. Notices of infringement that do not comply with this act will not be processed. We will act in accordance with the DMCA when handling infringement reports.

SYSTEM RESOURCE USAGE

If Sixu’s system administration team determines that a customer’s account is utilizing an unacceptable amount of system resources, Sixu may temporarily deactivate the account in question. If Sixu’s staff deems necessary, an eviction notice may be sent to the customer of an offending account providing them with ten (10) days in which to either upgrade to a dedicated server or locate a new provider. This only occurs in extreme cases.

Sixu will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision. Because of the nature of this provision, each account will be considered and analyzed individually.

DOMAIN PARKING CIRCUMVENTION

Any attempt to circumvent domain parking restrictions by using selective HTTP redirects or any other method to send traffic from parked domains to sites other than the main site is strictly prohibited. If multiple domain names with separate content are required, domain pointers must be used instead.

CHAT ROOMS

We do not allow clients to install their own chat rooms. These tend to be extremely recource intensive and we cannot allow it as an account option.

BACKGROUND RUNNING PROGRAMS (bots/daemons/monitors)

Customers are not permitted to run programs in the background on shared hosting servers. This tends to use a lot of system resources, and can impair service to other customers on that server.

BACKUPS

Sixu’s hosting accounts include a nightly backup service, however these backups are for Sixu’s administrative purposes only, and are in NO WAY GUARANTEED! Customers are responsible for maintaining their own backups on their own personal computers. Sixu does not provide any sort of compensation for lost or incomplete data in the event that backups do not function properly (even if the malfunction was due to negligence on Sixu’s part). We will do our best to ensure complete and accurate backups, but assume no responsibility for this duty. Always back your site up to your local computer! We make no guarantees about the availability of backups.

SUPPORT ABUSE

At Sixu, we always treat our customers with the utmost respect. In return, we expect the same from you. If our staff feels that you are consistently addressing them in a demeaning or rude manner, your account may be suspended and you may be asked to take your business elsewhere. In the event that we terminate service for support abuse, customers will be given ten (10) days notice to find a new host. We will issue a refund only for the unused portion of pre-paid service.

Note: Due to our extremely high customer satisfaction rate, we have never had to invoke this clause.

CRON JOBS

We do allow Cron Jobs to be conducted on our servers. You can setup and manage the cron jobs for your account from the “Cron” section.

IRC (Internet Relay Chat)

We do not allow IRC or IRC bots to be operated on our servers. Any account found to be in violation of this provision will be immediately suspended and/or deactivated and no refund will be issued.

SHELL ACCESS

Shell access is provided on an as-needed basis. It does not come enabled on accounts by default. A request for this feature must be sent to technical support before it can be used. The request must include a domain name, username and explanation of why shell access is required. We reserve the right to refuse this service to any customer for any reason.

UNSOLICITED EMAIL (SPAM)

SPAMing, or the sending of unsolicited email, from a Sixu server or using a return email address that is maintained on a Sixu server is STRICTLY prohibited. Using SPAM to advertise a site hosted on Sixu’s network also constitutes as a violation of this provision. Sixu will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision. Sites found to be in violation of our SPAM policies will be immediately deactivated and no refund will be issued.

Help us STOP SPAM! Please email open a support ticket immediately to report a violation of our SPAM policies.

SERVER ABUSE

Any attempts to undermine or cause harm to a Sixu, L.L.C. server or customer of Sixu is strictly prohibited.

Sixu will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision. Customers found in violation of this provision will be subject to account deactivation without refund. Sixu will turn all available information about abuse incidents, including customer contact data, over to the proper authorities and press charges.

FAILURE TO FOLLOW POLICIES

Failure to fully comply with these terms is grounds for account suspension and/or deactivation (without refund, subject to Sixu’s discretion). Any accounts and/or servers contained within Sixu’s network must adhere to the above policies.

We reserve the right to remove any account without prior notice. If we deactivate your account for violating policy, you will forfeit your rights to a refund–and none will be given. No refunds for advanced payment. Our normal policy is a warning first, and account deactivation the second offense, but no warning is required.

Sixu reserves the right to deactivate and remove any site hosted on our servers that contains any content that it deems in its sole discretion to be unacceptable, undesirable or contraindicated.

Client grants Sixu a limited license and permission to use any Client trade name and/or trademark for such, and only for such, purposes.

5. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY, NO OTHER WARRANTY AND DISCLAIMER

5.1 Limitation. In the event that any limited guarantees are provided by Sixu, such limited guarantees are null and void if Client fails to follow Sixu’s TOS and other policies or otherwise breaches this Agreement in any respect.

5.2 No Other Warranty. Sixu does not monitor or exercise control over the content of the information transmitted through its facilities. Use of the Services or any information that may be obtained there from is at Client’s own risk. The Services are provided on an “as is” basis, and Client’s use of the Services is at its own risk. Except as provided in the order form(s), Sixu does not make, and hereby disclaims, any and all other express and/or implied warranties, including, but not limited to, warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, non-infringement and title, and any warranties arising from a course of dealing, usage, or trade practice. Sixu does not represent or warrant that the Services will be uninterrupted, error-free, or completely secure.

5.3 Disclaimer of Actions Caused by and/or Under the Control of Third Parties. Sixu does not and cannot control the flow of information to or from Sixu’s network and other portions of the Internet. Such flow depends in large part on the performance of the Internet services provided or controlled by third parties. At times, actions or inactions of such third parties may impair or disrupt Client’s connections to the Internet (or portions thereof). Sixu cannot guarantee that such events will not occur. Accordingly, Sixu disclaims any and all liability resulting from or related to such events.

6. INDEMNIFICATION

Client agrees to indemnify, defend and hold Sixu and its affiliates, agents, employees, and licensors (including the third party service providers) harmless from any and all claim, demand, loss, costs or expense, including attorneys’ fees, made by any person arising out of Client’s violation of this Agreement, State or Federal Securities laws or regulations, or any other person’s rights including but not limited to infringement of any copyright or violation of any proprietary or privacy right.

Under no circumstances, including but not limited to a negligent act, will Sixu or its affiliates, agents, employees, or licensors (including third party service providers) be liable for any damages of any kind that result from the use of, or the inability to use, Services, even if any such party has been advised of the possibility of such damages.

In no event will Sixu or its third party service providers be liable to Client or any third Party for any tort, contract or any other liability arising in connection with the use of the Services, or reliance on any information or services provided by Sixu. Sixu and its third party service providers will under no circumstances be liable to Client and/or any third party, regardless of the form of action, for any loss of profits, goodwill, use, data or other intangible losses, or any direct, indirect, special, consequential, incidental or punitive damages whatsoever, even if Sixu or its third party service providers has been advised of the possibility of such damages, resulting from: (i) the use of the inability to use the Services; (ii) the timeliness, deletion, misdelivery, or failure to store any user date, communications or personalization settings; (iii) the cost of getting substitute goods and services resulting from any products, data, information or services purchases or obtained or messages received or transactions entered into, through or from the Services; (iv) statements or conduct of anyone on the Services; (vi) the use, inability to use, unauthorized use, performance or non-performance of any third party, even if the third party has been advised previously of the possibility of such damages; or (vii) any other matter relating to the Services. Client agrees that Client will not in any way hold Sixu responsible for any selection or retention of, or the acts or omissions of, third parties (including third party service providers) in connection with the Client Services.

Because some states prohibit the limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states the limitation of liability only with respect to consequential or incidental damages may not apply to Client, and the respective liability of Sixu and its third party service providers, employees, distributors and agents is limited to the greatest extent allowable under applicable law in those states.

In the event that a court or arbitration panel, as the case may be, should hold that the limitations of liability or remedies available as set forth in this Agreement, or any portions thereof, are unenforceable for any reason, or that any of Client’s remedies under this Agreement fail, then Client expressly agrees that under no circumstances will the total, aggregate liability of Sixu and its third party service providers, employees, distributors, agents or affiliates, to Client or any party claiming by or through Client for any cause whatsoever exceed $100 (U.S.), regardless of the form of action and whether in contract, statute, tort or otherwise.

7. TERMINATION

7.1 Without Cause. This Agreement may be terminated by either party at any time during any Renewal Term for any or no reason upon either party giving to the other no less than five (5) days’ prior written notice of termination. No matter which party terminates the Agreement pursuant to this Section 7.1, any and all payment obligations of Client under this Agreement for Service(s) provided through the date of termination will immediately become due, and Client shall be required to prepay for any portion of the Services that have not been paid for and are to be rendered during such five (5) day period.

7.2 For Cause. In addition to any other rights it may have under this Agreement or applicable law, Sixu may immediately terminate this Agreement or suspend service, effective without notice, in the event of (i) a default in payment, or (ii) Client’s breach or failure to comply with the TOS or other policies of Sixu. Client may terminate this Agreement if Sixu breaches any material term or written notice of same. If this Agreement is terminated by Sixu under this Section 7.2, all balance of the then current term shall immediately become due and payable. In addition to the foregoing, Sixu reserves the right to prohibit any conduct or to remove any materials or content in violation of the TOS or which Sixu believes in its sole discretion to be illegal or potentially harmful to others or may expose Sixu to harm or liability.

Domain Registration Agreement

THIS REGISTRATION AGREEMENT (“Agreement”), is between Tucows Domains Inc. (“Tucows”) and you, on behalf of yourself or the entity you represent (“Registrant”), as offered through Sixu LLC, the Reseller participating in Tucows’ distribution channel for domain name registrations. Any reference to “Registry” or “Registry Operator” shall refer to the registry administrator of the applicable top-level domain (“TLD”). This Agreement explains Tucows’ obligations to Registrant, and Registrant’s obligations to Tucows, for the domain registration services. By agreeing to the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, Registrant agrees to be bound by the rules and regulations set forth in this Agreement, and by a registry for that particular TLD.

DOMAIN NAME REGISTRATION. Domain name registrations are for a limited term, which ends on the expiration date communicated to the Registrant. A domain name submitted through Tucows will be deemed active when the relevant registry accepts the Registrant’s application and activates Registrant’s domain name registration or renewal. Tucows cannot guarantee that Registrant will obtain a desired domain name, even if an inquiry indicates that a domain name is available at the time of application. Tucows is not responsible for any inaccuracies or errors in the domain name registration or renewal process.

FEES. Registrant agrees to pay Reseller the applicable service fees prior to the registration or renewal of a domain. All fees payable here under are non-refundable even if Registrant’s domain name registration is suspended, cancelled or transferred prior to the end of your current registration term.

TERM. This Agreement will remain in effect during the term of the domain name registration as selected, recorded and paid for at the time of registration or renewal. Should the domain name be transferred to another registrar, the terms and conditions of this Agreement shall cease.

EXPIRATION, RENEWAL AND FORFEITURE. The registered domain name will expire on the expiration date specified in the registration term, and as communicated to the Registrant. Registrant will receive reminders immediately prior to the expiration inviting Registrant to renew the domain name. In the event that Registrant fails to renew the domain name in a timely fashion, the registration will expire and Tucows may, at its discretion, elect to assume the registration and may hold it in its own account, delete it, or sell it to a third party. During the period following the expiration of a domain name, the domain name will cease to resolve, the Whois registration records may be revised to include that of Tucows or its reseller, and visitors to Registrant’s website may be directed to a default web page. This default web page may feature advertisements posted by Tucows for its own account. Registrant acknowledges and agrees that Registrant’s right and interest in a domain name ceases upon its expiration. Registrant is solely responsible for informing itself of the date of expiration and renewing its registration in a timely manner. If Tucows, in its sole discretion, elects to renew the registration, Registrant will be entitled to a grace period of forty (40) days during which Registrant may re-register the domain name. Additional costs for the redemption and re-registration will apply.

EXPIRED REGISTRATION RECOVERY POLICY. Domain expiration notices will be sent via email thirty (30) days and five (5) days prior to a domain expiration date and three (3) days after a domain expires. Renewal, post-expiration renewal and redemption fees are published at https://opensrs.com/services/domains/domain-pricing/. Reseller’s fees may differ.

REGISTRANT INFORMATION AND DATA_SHARING. Data required for the registration of a domain name varies by top-level domain. The required data for a domain name registration (“Minimum Data”) will be presented at the time of registration or renewal and may include up to:

  • Name and postal address of the Registered Name Holder;
  • Registered name;
  • Names of the primary nameserver and secondary nameserver(s) for the Registered Name;
  • Name, postal address, e-mail address, and voice and fax (if available) telephone numbers of the administrative contact for the domain name;
  • Name, postal address, e-mail address, and voice and fax (if available) telephone numbers of the billing contact for the domain name; and
  • Name, postal address, e-mail address, and voice and fax (if available) telephone numbers of the technical contact for the domain name.

The Minimum Data will be shared with Tucows and the relevant authoritative registry services provider for your top-level domain. The identity of the authoritative registry services provider can be found at https://www.iana.org/whois. The Minimum Data for domains in any TLD you have registered can be found in the Data Use Information Page.

ACCURATE INFORMATION. Registrant represents and warrants that:

  • The statements that Registrant makes in connection with the domain name registration, maintenance, or renewal are complete and accurate;
  • Registrant information will be kept current;
  • Registrant will not and will not permit others to use the domain name in violation of any ICANN or registry policies, applicable laws or regulations, or legal rights of others;
  • Registrant will respond to inquiries from Tucows addressed to the email address of the Registrant, the administrative, billing or technical contact with respect to a domain name concerning the accuracy of contact details.

Registrant acknowledges that a breach of this Section 8 will constitute a material breach of the Agreement, which will entitle either Tucows or a registry to terminate this Agreement immediately upon such breach without any refund and without notice to Registrant.

ACCOUNT REVIEW, DATA MODIFICATION OR DELETION. To access, view, update, delete or download data associated with your domain name registration, you must be signed into your account. If you make a request to delete your personal data and that data is necessary for the products or services you have purchased, the request will be honored only to the extent it is no longer necessary for any services purchased or required for our legitimate business purposes or legal or contractual record keeping requirements.

ICANN-REQUIRED DISCLOSURES. Domain name registration requires sharing the Registrant’s information, in whole or in part, with the applicable Registry Operator and with ICANN. Both Tucows and the Registry Operator may be required to archive this information with a third-party escrow service. Further, Registrant represents and warrants that, if Registrant is providing information about a third party, Registrant has notified the third party of the required disclosures and the purpose for the disclosures and Registrant has obtained the third party’s consent to such disclosure. ICANN may establish or modify the guidelines, limits or requirements that relate to the amount and type of information that Tucows may or must make available to the public or to private entities, and the manner in which such information is made available.

SUSPENSION AND CANCELLATION. Tucows may in its sole discretion, suspend or cancel Registrant’s domain name registration:

  • if Registrant breaches this Agreement;
  • if Registrant fails to provide payment or accurate contact or billing information;

  • as required by ICANN or a Registry Operator;
  • to protect the integrity and stability of Tucows and any applicable registry;

ICANN may change the UDRP at any time. If a third party challenges the registration or reservation of the Registrant’s domain name, Registrant will be subject to the provisions specified in the dispute policy adopted by the applicable registry. In the event a domain name dispute arises, Registrant will indemnify and hold Tucows harmless pursuant to the terms and conditions contained in the applicable policy. If Tucows is notified that a complaint has been filed with a judicial or administrative body regarding a domain name, Tucows may, at its sole discretion, suspend use of the domain name and the ability to make modifications to the registration records until:

  • Tucows is directed to do so by the judicial or administrative body, or

POLICY. Registrant agrees that its registration of the domain name shall be subject to suspension, cancellation, or transfer pursuant to a Tucows, registry, ICANN or government-adopted policy, or pursuant to any registrar or registry procedure not inconsistent with a Tucows, registry, ICANN or government-adopted policy,

  • to correct mistakes by Tucows or a registry in registering the name or
  • for the resolution of disputes concerning the domain name.

TRADEMARK CLEARINGHOUSE (TMCH). Registrant agrees to abide by the terms and conditions set forth by Tucows and the Trademark Clearinghouse Agreement available at http://opensrs.com/site/resources/agreements#contracts.

NO GUARANTEE. Registrant acknowledges that registration of a chosen domain name does not confer immunity from objection to the registration, reservation or use of the domain name.

AGENCY. If Registrant intends to license use of a domain name to a third party, Registrant is deemed the domain name holder of record and is responsible for providing Registrant’s own full contact information adequate to facilitate timely resolution of any problems that arise in connection with the domain name. Registrant shall accept liability for harm caused by wrongful use of the domain name, unless it promptly discloses the licensee’s identity and current contact information (as provided by the licensee) to a party providing the Registered Name Holder reasonable evidence of actionable harm. Registrant represents that it will secure the agreement of any third party to the terms and conditions in this Agreement.

MODIFICATIONS TO AGREEMENT.

Your continued use of the registered domain name will constitute your acceptance of this Agreement with any revisions.

ANNOUNCEMENTS. Tucows reserves the right to distribute information to Registrant that is required by ICANN or Registry policy.

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. Registrant agrees that Tucows’ entire liability, and Registrant’s exclusive remedy, with respect to the domain registration service provided under this Agreement and any breach of this Agreement is solely limited to the amount Registrant paid for the initial registration of the domain name. Tucows, ICANN and the applicable registries shall not be liable for any lost profits, revenues, or data, financial losses or indirect, special, consequential, exemplary, or punitive damages. Because some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states, liability is limited to the extent permitted by law.

INDEMNITY. Registrant will defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Tucows, ICANN, the applicable registries, and their respective directors, officers, employees, agents, affiliates, and contractors, from all liabilities, claims and expenses, including attorney’s fees, arising out of or relating to

  • Registrant’s registration and use of the domain name registered;
  • use of the domain name in violation of this Agreement; or
  • Registrant’s violation of any third party right, including Intellectual Property Rights. This indemnification obligation will survive the termination or expiration of this Agreement.

TRANSFER OF OWNERSHIP. The person named as Registrant on record with Tucows shall be the “Registered Name Holder.” If designated, the person named as administrative contact at the time the controlling account was secured shall be deemed the designate of the Registrant with the authority to manage the domain name. Registrant agrees that prior to transferring ownership of the domain name to another person (the “Transferee”) Registrant shall require the Transferee to agree, in writing to be bound by all the terms and conditions of this Agreement. If the Transferee fails to be bound in a reasonable fashion (as determine by Tucows in its sole discretion) to the terms and conditions in this Agreement, any such transfer will be null and void. Registrant explicitly authorizes Tucows to act as their Designated Agent, as stipulated by the ICANN Transfer Policy, to approve a Change of Registrant on their behalf.

BREACH. Registrant agrees that failure to abide by any provision of this Agreement, any ICANN, Registry, URDP or Dispute operating rule or policy, may be considered by Tucows to be a material breach, and that Tucows may provide written notice, describing the breach, to Registrant. If within fifteen (15) calendar days of the date of such notice, Registrant fails to provide evidence, which is reasonably satisfactory to Tucows, that Registrant has not breached its obligations under the Agreement, then Tucows may delete the registration the domain name. Any such breach by Registrant shall not be deemed to be excused simply because Tucows did not act earlier in response to that, or any other, breach by Registrant.

DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES. Except for the express warranties in this Agreement, Tucows does not make any other warranty of any kind, whether express, implied, statutory or otherwise, including warranties or merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, and non-infringement. Tucows is not responsible or liable for the deletion or of failure to store any content and other communications maintained or transmitted through the use of the domain name registration service. Tucows does not warrant that the domain name registrations service will be error free or uninterrupted. The domain name registration service is not intended for high risk activities.

INCONSISTENCIES WITH REGISTRY POLICIES. In the event that this Agreement may be inconsistent with any term, condition, policy or procedure of an applicable Registry, the term, condition, policy or procedure of the applicable Registry shall prevail.

NON-WAIVER. Tucows failure to require performance by Registrant of any provision hereof shall not affect the full right to require such performance at any time thereafter; nor shall the waiver by Tucows of a breach of any provision hereof be taken or held to be a waiver of the provision itself.

NOTICES. Any notice, direction or other communication given under this Agreement shall be in writing and given by sending it via e-mail or via regular mail. In the case of e-mail, valid notice shall only have been deemed to be given when an electronic confirmation of delivery has been obtained by the sender.

  3. Limited government influence.

  4. Independent actors. Members of the .ngo|.ong community should not be political parties nor should be a part of any government. Participation in the work of a NGO or ONG is voluntary.
  5. Active organisations. Members of the .ngo|.ong community are actively pursuing their missions on a regular basis.
  6. Structured. Members of the .ngo|.ong community, whether large or small, operate in a structured manner (e.g. under bylaws, codes of conduct, organizational standards, or other government structures.)
  7. Lawful. Members of the .ngo|.ong community act with integrity within the bounds of law.
  8. To activate new domains, NGO organisations will also need to complete a post-registration validation process:

  11. government list;
  12. corporate documents (e.g. Articles of Incorporation); and

iii.        tax records or other documents evidencing the entity’s charitable status and work in the community it serves.

If the registrant does not successfully complete the validation process within one year from the date it registers the domain name bundle, the domain name bundle will be deleted and released back into the pool of available domains and any fees paid in connection with the registration of the domain name bundle will be forfeit.
  3. Registrant acknowledges and understands that, in the event it is selected for an audit, it will promptly comply with any inquiries and requests from the Registry to provide additional evidence of its NGO status.
  4. If, as a result of the audit process, the Registry determines (in its sole discretion) that the Registrant does not meet the NGO eligibility requirements, the Registrant’s domain name bundle will be deleted and released back into the pool of available domains and any fees paid in connection with the Registrant’s domain name bundle will be forfeit.
