Failure to follow any term or condition will be grounds for immediate account deactivation without notice or refund for the remaining months fees.
Disk Space/Unlimited Bandwidth Plans.
Web Hosting and WordPress Hosting are designed to host personal, small business and organization web sites, and thus SpeedRak.com offers unlimited bandwidth and limited disk space.
This means that SpeedRak.com does not set a limit on the amount of bandwidth you may use in the operation of your web site, provided it complies with this Agreement.
In the event the bandwidth usage of your web site presents a risk to the stability, performance or uptime of SpeedRak.com server(s), data storage, networking or other infrastructure, you may be required to upgrade to a VPS or Stand Alone Dedicated Server, or SpeedRak.com may take action to restrict the resources your web site is utilizing.
SERVICE UPTIME GUARANTEE
I offer a service uptime guarantee of 99.9% (“Service Uptime Guarantee”) of available time per month. If SpeedRak.com fails to maintain this Service Uptime Guarantee in a particular month (as solely determined by SpeedRak.com), you may contact SpeedRak.com and request a credit of 20% of the service period hosting fees for each 20 minutes of downtime (per occurrence). Provided credit will not exceed 100% of a monthly hosting fee for that month.
The Service Uptime Guarantee does not apply to service interruptions caused by:
- Periodic scheduled maintenance or repairs I may undertake from time to time
- Interruptions caused by you from custom scripting, coding or the installation of third-party applications
- Causes beyond SpeedRak.com’s control or that are not reasonably foreseeable
- Outages related to the reliability of certain programming environments.
- Outages that do not affect the appearance of your web site but merely affect access to your web site such as FTP and email

Credits are forfeited if Customer’s service is terminated. Credits have no cash value and cannot be converted to refunds.
Customers who are on recurring plans are due for automatic billing from their credit card on the monthly or yearly anniversary date after sign up, and every anniversary thereafter, on or about the same day of the month.
If your credit card information has changed, then you must notify SpeedRak.com immediately so I may change this information.
