All users of WebImpress services, and all customers upon signing up for WebImpress services, agree to comply with WebImpress Terms of Service ("TOS"). The spirit of the TOS is to ensure customers are using WebImpress services with due regard to the rights of other Internet users and in conformity with the requirements of the WebImpress network environment. The TOS are not exhaustive and WebImpress reserves the right to add, delete, or modify any provision of its TOS at any time without notice, effective upon either the posting of the modified TOS to www.webimpress.in or notification of the modified TOS. Any complaints about a customer's violation of the TOS should be sent to [email protected]
Please see our abuse terms for more details on abuse policy. When you agree to the terms, you are also agreeing to our Billing terms. Except when expressly agreed to the contrary in writing by an authorized representative of WebImpress, this TOS supersedes any other agreement with WebImpress, whether written, oral, by conduct, or otherwise.
Any Web site that uses a high amount of server resources (such as, but not limited to, CPU time, memory usage, and network resources) will be given the option to reduce the resources used to an acceptable level. WebImpress will be the sole arbiter of what is considered to be a high server usage level. Any Web Hosting account deemed to be adversely affecting server performance or network integrity will be asked to move to a higher plan/VPS/Dedicated Server as per usage.
Any script that consumes large amounts of resources is not allowed, such as (but not limited to): Bots, proxy scripts, rapid leech scripts, torrent related scripts, chatting or chat room scripts, PTC (Paid-to-click) site scripts, file or image hosting scripts, mail-bombers or spam scripts, topsites scripts, auto-blog scripts and plugins. Such scripts will be terminated immediately with no prior notice and account owners will not be eligible for a refund. We provide shared hosting, therefore, any script you run that will consume large amounts of resources affects other customers on your server negatively, so please use common sense when using a script. If you are unsure of any script, before running the script in your account, please contact WebImpress Sales or Support to ensure the script is allowed.
No account should not use more than 50% of their CPU limit consistently for more than 60 minutes. If you are consistently using 25% or more CPU, you will need to upgrade to the next available hosting plan. If you are using the maximum hosting plan and are still using 25% or more CPU consistently, then you have most likely outgrown a shared hosting environment and should therefore obtain a VPS or dedicated server to better suit your needs.
Any account suspended or terminated due to violation of our Terms of Service will not be eligible for a refund, including during our 7 day money back guarantee period.
Crypto Currency Mining
Due to their resource abusive nature, any/all types of e-currency mining is not allowed on our servers. This includes all service/server types. Clients found to be knowingly and willingly mining on our servers will be terminated immediately and no refunds or credits of any kind will be given.
WebImpress has a "No Tolerance" policy on Spam and bulk mail. Sending unsolicited, bulk and/or commercial messages over the Internet or by text messaging (known as "spamming") is prohibited, regardless of whether or not it overloads a server or disrupts service to WebImpress customers. WebImpress also does not allow CAN-SPAM compliant bulk email or consider emails not Spam just because you include an Opt-Out notice. The term "spamming" also includes, but is not limited to, maintaining an open SMTP policy, sending unsolicited text messages, engaging in spamming using the service of another ISP or IPP and referencing in the spam a Web site hosted on a WebImpress server, and selling or distributing software (on a Web site residing on a WebImpress server) that facilitates spamming. If a WebImpress server IP has been blacklisted due to spamming by a users domain name hosted on our servers, the violator will face immediate termination and no refunds will be given. WebImpress reserves the right to determine, in its sole and absolute discretion, what constitutes a violation of this provision.
Any account suspended or terminated due to spamming will not be eligible for a refund.
Denial of Service Attacks
"Stress testing" or purposely receiving DDoS/DoS attacks is not tolerated on our servers.
This also includes sending a DDoS/DoS or taking part in a DDoS/DoS from any WebImpress account, be it shared/reseller/vps or dedicated server. Any account found actively and knowingly sending abusive traffic will be immediately suspended and possibly terminated with no refunds given.

Reseller Plan Policy

Abusive Clients of Resellers
WebImpress reserves the right to suspend or terminate any reseller client account(s) we find to be abusive, illegal, etc. as per our regular Terms of Service abuse policy without prior notification based on the severity of the abuse.
Suspended Account Storage
Resellers are not permitted to have any account in a suspended state for a period of more than 90 days. Since this falls under our backup storage policy and the storage of backups not being permitted in your account, any reseller cPanel sub-account found to be suspended for more than 90 days will be terminated in accordance with this policy. If you have a need for the account and it will be in a suspended state for more than 90 days, we suggest making a full backup of the account and storing the backup file remotely.
Dedicated IP Address Policy
Dedicated IP addresses purchased from WebImpress are non-transferrable and cannot be transferred to a new host. The assigning of dedicated IP addresses are subject to ARIN's new policies which require justification for the need of the IP address. An example of proper justification includes, but not limited to: SSL certificates, reseller accounts and dedicated servers. WebImpress will deny requests for dedicated IP addresses without proper justification.
WebImpress guarantees that your website will be up and running at least 99.9% of the time during any given 12-month period. This guarantee includes network uptime, server uptime, web server and service uptime. It does not cover any areas where webimpress.in has no direct influence, such as backbone provider failures, fibre-optic main line cuts, DNS or Domain Registrar issues with subscriber's domain name, connection issues between the client's location and webimpress.in data center. This uptime guarantee is also not applicable if the service interruption was caused by external issues such as Acts of God, Wars or any other natural or unnatural events that webimpress.in cannot directly influence.
To request a service credit due to an uptime concern, please submit a request for this guarantee via WebImpress' web site.
If requesting a "service credit" we ask that the client briefly explains the reasons for doing so. Include any documentation supporting your request.
Data center Locations are subject to availability and choosing a specific location during your order does not guarantee that location. WebImpress reserves the right to substitute the chosen server location as necessary and/or move accounts to other server locations as needed.

Daily backups include the backup of all account data, email accounts and MySQL databases.
