Terms Of Service

Clients Responsibility

All clients must use their real information upon signing up for an account with HostKoala. If you are using any service under HostKoala on behalf on another party, please note that both of you are liable for any actions done on HostKoala services. HostKoala will contact you with the email address you have placed when you registered with HostKoala. It is your responsibility to respond to such emails, any lapsed or inability to receive such email is not HostKoalas responsibility. You agree to be fully responsible for all use of your account and for any actions that take place through your account. It is your responsibility to maintain the confidentiality of your password and other information related to the security of your account.

User Content

You may be able to upload, store, publish, display and distribute information, text, photos, videos and other content on or through the Services. HostKoala has no control over users content. We will never monitor user content, only files accesible to the world wide web, only in the situation where there has been an abuse complain. HostKoala will never enter and view your personal content hosted on your website, unless given permission so, via a ticket in our client system. If asked to perform basic tasks, like modifying .htaccess files or PHP settings, HostKoala staff may enter your account, and make the necessary changes for you.

Prohibited Content

Any content, which violates the law of the server you are hosted on, will result in service suspension. This means, if you have a USA hosting account, you must abide the USA law, or risk being suspended for unlawful content. This means, if you have a UK hosting account, you must abide the UK law, or risk being suspended for unlawful content. This means, if you have a Luxembourg hosting account, you must abide the Luxembourg law, or risk being suspended for unlawful content. This means, if you have a Netherlands hosting account, you must abide the Netherlands law, or risk being suspended for unlawful content. This means, if you have a Singapore hosting account, you must abide the Singapore law, or risk being suspended for unlawful content. The current law in Luxembourg ignores all DMCA takedown requests.

SPAM

HostKoala prohibits spam from being sent out from any hosting account. Any account found sending spam out from their hosting account will be suspended immediately ( whether intentional or not ). On the first offense, we will unsuspend the account and take actions required to prevent it from recurring again ( Eg. Hacked Wordpress installations will be removed ). If the spam occurs for a second time, the account will be permanently suspended.
The reason for this strict rule is because we want to keep our server IPs off blacklists. This is to ensure all legit mail being sent out by our clients are clean and not sent into spam immediately.

CPU Abuse

Cpu abuse via scripts is not allowed due to it stressing the server and impacting the performance of other users. Accounts running such scripts ( whether intentionally, or due to a hacked website ) will be suspended. The suspension will be reviewed by HostKoala staff, and unsuspensions are handed out on a case by case basis.

Payment Agreement

Late payments will cause service interruption, accounts will be suspended. After a week of suspension, HostKoala has the rights to terminate the account with no backups. If you require additional time to pay, contact HostKoala to see what can be done. Any fraudalent use of credit cards, charge cards, paypal accounts, will result in service termination.

Money Back Guarantee

Only your first purchase with HostKoala on a selected server is eligible for a full refund. Any second purchase on the same server will not be eligible for a refund. This is because if you have purchased a 2nd account on the same server, you have fully tested the server. If you made a 2nd purchase, but on a different server ( EG. You own an Atlanta hosting account, and bought an ASIA hosting account ), you are eligible for a refund on the ASIA server within 45 days of purchase on the ASIA server. All refunds must be requested within 45 days of purchase date. Refunds may take up to 7 business days to process.

Uptime Guarantee

If services falls below 99.9% uptime, HostKoala will provide a half month refund OR a 2400 % downtime reimbursement ( EG. One hour of downtime, will be credited with an extra DAY of service ) If service falls below 99% uptime, HostKoala will provide a full refund for that month. Uptime is monitored independently by UptimeRobot with us. Downtime due to clients own ISP problems, or clients own website coding/functionality issues is considered to be out of our control and will not be reimbursed.

Backups

While HostKoala implements weekly Offshore backups & Daily Backups as well as using RAID 10 SSDs, HostKoala will not be responsible for any data loss for clients who use our service. It is impossible to predict RAID failures or corrupted backups. Even large companies like DigitalOcean have suffered loss of data. It is highly recommended that you have your own backups, on multiple levels, for your protection of your own data.
