Unlimited use policy

High bandwidth usage: W3 Web Designs Ltd offers an unlimited use policy on its web hosting packages by maintaining very large ratios of bandwidth per customer. In rare cases, W3 Web Designs Ltd may find a customer to be using server resources to such an extent that he or she may jeopardize server performance and resources for other customers. In such instances, W3 Web Designs Ltd reserves the right to impose the High Resource User Policy for the consideration of all customers.

High resource user policy

Resources are defined as bandwidth and/or processor utilization. W3 Web Designs Ltd may implement the following policy to its sole discretion: When a website is found to be monopolising the resources available W3 Web Designs Ltd reserves the right to suspend that site immediately. This policy is only implemented in extreme circumstances and is intended to prevent the misuse of our servers.

Payment policies

All accounts are set up on a prepay basis. Although W3 Web Designs Ltd reserves the right to change prices of accounts or services at any time, all pricing is guaranteed for the period of prepayment. Payment is due each anniversary year or month following the date the account was established. Customers will automatically be invoiced again at the end of their prepay period unless closure notification has already been given.

In situations where payment is not received W3 Web Designs Ltd will immediately suspend the facility to purchase services on-line until the outstanding payment is received. In addition, W3 Web Designs Ltd reserves the right to suspend other services until the outstanding debt is cleared. The customer is responsible for all money owed on the account from the time it was established to the time that the customer requests cancellation.

All payments are in UK sterling.

Payment options

In order to streamline our accounting procedures and keep costs down W3 Web Designs Ltd runs a cheque payment option.
