IDX or RETS Feed for Real Estate

Written by
As a Realtor myself, having the most up to date MLS listing information available for my clients and/or potential clients on my websites is a huge priority. From a non-technical point of view you may be wondering-I see listings on my website, all of the products out there are pretty much the same right? There is acutally a huge difference in the variety of products out there that will directly affect your website ranking and the quality of your presentation. Let's look at a few key terms: IDX (Internet Data Exchange) this is merely the definition of data exchange between a Realtor members website and their local MLS. How this happens will be explained a bit further down. Iframes is merely an offsite link, meaning that although the MLS search and listings appear to be on your site, in reality you are not adding any content to your actual website. Listings are being pulled from an offsite huge database that is fed to 1000's of other agents. There is absolutely no SEO benefit in using this option because you are not adding actual content to your own personal website. Additionally, your data is updated once maybe twice if you're lucky. RETS (Real Estate Transaction Standard) also used to provide listing and transaction data to broker's and agent's websites. This protocol standard is where the industry is moving to. The key elements of RETS are the ability to customize how the allowed data is displayed, updates are available as frequently as once an hour, and you actually have content (the MLS listings) added to your physical website which is essential for great SEO. In order to utilize this feed, BizBOOM has partnered with the developers of iPALS-which converts the data from your local MLS, using only your personal MLS login and deliver a readable, SEO friendly solution for your real estate clients. We have a variety of website designs and options to fit your needs and budget-does your website need help? Call us today! 530-354-1380

It is the client's responsibility to ensure that payment is made to BizBOOM! prior to the due date and although BizBOOM! sends notices to our customers prior to their due date, because of the ability for a customer to change their contact email addresses without notifying BizBOOM!, the customer is ultimately responsible for remembering their due date and to make sure payment is made upon the due date.

Terms of Service - Hosting

Account Setup:

We will setup your account after we have received payment and we and/or our payment partner(s) have screened the order(s) in case of fraud. It is your responsibility to provide us with an email address which is not at the domain(s) you are signing up under. If there is ever an abuse issue or we need to contact you, the primary email address on file will be used for this purpose. It is your responsibility to ensure the email address on file is current or up to date at all times. If you have a domain name registered with BizBOOM!, it is your responsibility to ensure that the contact information for your domain account and your actual domain name(s) is correct and up-to-date. BizBOOM! is not responsible for a lapsed registration due to outdated contact information being associated with the domain. If you need to verify or change this information, you should contact our sales team via email. Providing false contact information of any kind may result in the termination of your account. In dedicated server purchases or high risk transactions, it will be necessary to provide government issued identification and possibly a scan of the credit card used for the purchase. If you fail to meet these requirements, the order may be considered fraudulent in nature and be denied.

Ownership:

The credit card holder or owner of the PayPal e-mail address which is utilized for payment on the account is designated as the authorized owner of the account.

Transfers:

Our transfers team will make every effort to help you move your site to us. However, transfers are provided as a courtesy service, and we can not make guarantees regarding the availability, possibility, or time required to complete an account transfer. Each hosting company is configured differently, and some hosting platforms save data in an incompatible or proprietary format, which may make it extremely difficult if not impossible to migrate some or all account data. We will try our best, but in some cases we may be unable to assist you in a transfer of data from an old host.

The free transfer services are available for 30 days from your sign up date. Transfers outside of the 30 day free period will incur a charge; please contact a member of the transfers department with specific details to receive a price quote.

Dedicated IP Address Allocation:

Any dedicated IP order in addition to ones provided with a hosting package may be subject to IP Justification. Justification practices are subject to change to remain in conformity with policies of American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN). We reserve the right to deny any dedicated IP request based on insufficient justification or current IP utilization.

Third Party Providers:

All transactions with third party providers are solely between the visitor and the individual provider. BizBOOM! is not the agent, representative, trustee or fiduciary of you or the third party provider in any transaction.

All discounts, promotions and special third party offers may be subject to additional restrictions and limitations by the third party provider. All transactions with third party providers are subject to the terms and conditions under which the provider agrees with you to provide the goods or services. You should confirm the terms of any purchase and/or use of goods or services with the specific provider with whom you are dealing.

We do not make any representations or warranties regarding, and are not liable for, the quality, availability, or timeliness of goods or services provided by a third party provider. You undertake all transactions with these providers at your own risk. We do not warrant the accuracy or completeness of any information regarding third party providers.

BizBOOM! servers, including all related equipment, networks and network devices are provided only for authorized customer use. BizBOOM! systems may be monitored for all lawful purposes, including to ensure that use is authorized, for management of the system, to facilitate protection against unauthorized access, and to verify security procedures, survivability, and operational security. During monitoring, information may be examined, recorded, copied and used for authorized purposes. Use of BizBOOM! system(s) constitutes consent to monitoring for these purposes.

Any account found connecting to a third party network or system without authorization from the third party is subject to suspension. Access to networks or systems outside of your direct control must be with expressed written consent from the third party. BizBOOM! may, at its discretion, request and require documentation to prove access to a third party network or system is authorized.

We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone. Any material that, in our judgment, is obscene, threatening, illegal, or violates our terms of service in any manner may be removed from our servers (or otherwise disabled), with or without notice.

Failure to respond to email from our abuse department within 48 hours may result in the suspension or termination of your services. All abuse issues must be dealt with via troubleticket/email and will have a response within 48 hours.

Sites hosted on BizBOOM!'s service(s) are regulated only by U.S. law. Given this fact, and pursuant to Section 230(c) of the Communications Decency Act, we do not remove allegedly defamatory material from domains hosted on our service(s). The only exception to this rule is if the material has been found to be defamatory by a court, as evidenced by a court order. BizBOOM! is not in a position to investigate and validate or invalidate the veracity of individual defamation claims, which is why we rely on the legal system and courts to determine whether or not material is indeed considered defamatory. In any case in which a court order indicates material is defamatory, libelous, or slanderous in nature; we will disable access to the material. Similarly, in any case in which a US Court has placed an injunction against specified content or material; we will comply and remove or disable access to the material in question.

The language of Section 230(c) of the Communications Decency Act fundamentally states that Internet services providers like BizBOOM! and many of BizBOOM!'s other webhosting services and brands are republishers and not the publisher of content. Our service merely provides a hosting platform and space on which to host content, and any creation or publication of content on our services is the sole responsibility of the third-party user which creates or publishes the content. Therefore, BizBOOM! should not be held liable for any allegedly defamatory, offensive or harassing content published on sites hosted under BizBOOM!'s webhosting service(s).

If in doubt regarding the acceptability of your site or service, please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will be happy to assist you.

Potential harm to minors is strictly forbidden, including but not limited to child pornography or content perceived to be child pornography (Lolita):

Any site found to host child pornography or linking to child pornography will be suspended immediately without notice.

Resellers: we will suspend the site in question and will notify you so you may terminate the account. We will further monitor your activity; more than one infraction of this type may result in the immediate termination of your account.

Direct customers: Your services will be terminated with or without notice.

Violations will be reported to the appropriate law enforcement agency.

It is your responsibility to ensure that scripts/programs installed under your account are secure and permissions of directories are set properly, regardless of installation method. When at all possible, set permissions on most directories to 755 or as restrictive as possible. Users are ultimately responsible for all actions taken under their account. This includes the compromise of credentials such as user name and password. It is required that you use a secure password. If a weak password is used, your account may be suspended until you agree to use a more secure password. Audits may be done to prevent weak passwords from being used. If an audit is performed, and your password is found to be weak, we will notify you and allow time for you to change/update your password.

Zero Tolerance Spam Policy:

We take a zero tolerance stance against sending of unsolicited e-mail, bulk emailing, and spam. "Safe lists", purchased lists, and selling of lists will be treated as spam. Any user who sends out spam will have their account terminated with or without notice.

Sites advertised via SPAM (Spamvertised) may not be hosted on our servers. This provision includes, but is not limited to SPAM sent via fax, phone, postal mail, email, instant messaging, or usenet/newsgroups. No organization or entity listed in the ROKSO may be hosted on our servers. Any account which results in our IP space being blacklisted will be immediately suspended and/or terminated.

BizBOOM! reserves the right to require changes or disable as necessary any web site, account, database, or other component that does not comply with its established policies, or to make any such modifications in an emergency at its sole discretion.

BizBOOM! reserves the right to charge the holder of the account used to send any unsolicited e-mail a clean up fee or any charges incurred for blacklist removal. This cost of the clean up fee is entirely at the discretion of BizBOOM!.

Payment Information:

You agree to supply appropriate payment for the services received from BizBOOM!, in advance of the time period during which such services are provided. You agree that until and unless you notify BizBOOM! of your desire to cancel any or all services received, those services will be billed on a recurring basis. No bills, invoices, or other forms of communication will be sent by postal mail or fax. Clients wishing/requesting a paper printed invoice, cancellation notice, or any other form of communication, may request that BizBOOM! does so, but will be done at an added fee. As our billing system is completely automated, and as such is "unmanned", there will be a MINIMUM fee of $10.00 per printed request, to cover labor, printing, mailing expenses, and any other fees. Your requested documents will be sent upon payment.

Cancellations must be done in writing via the cancellation form provided in your BizBOOM! billing/support account. Once we receive your cancellation and have confirmed all necessary information with you via e-mail, we will inform you in writing (typically email) that your account has been cancelled. Your cancellation confirmation will contain a ticket/tracking number in the subject for your reference, and for verification purposes. You should immediately receive an automatic "Your request has been received..." email with a tracking number. An employee will confirm your request (and process your cancellation) shortly thereafter. If you do not hear back from us, or do not receive the automatic confirmation email within a few minutes after submitting your cancellation, please contact us immediately. We require that cancellations of service are done through the online form to (a) confirm your identity, (b) confirm in writing you are prepared for all files/emails to be removed, and (c) document the request. This process reduces the likelihood of mistakes, fraudulent/malicious requests, and ensures you are aware that the files, emails, and account may be removed immediately after a cancellation request is processed. Cancellations for virtual private servers (VPS), dedicated servers, dynamic (private cloud) servers, and cloud hosting accounts MUST be received 15 days prior to the invoice due date, or an additional month of service will be assessed.

As a client of BizBOOM!, it is your responsibility to ensure that your payment information is up to date, and that all invoices are paid on time. You agree that until and unless you notify BizBOOM! of your desire to cancel any or all services received (by the proper means listed in the appropriate section of the Terms of Service), those services will be billed on a recurring basis, unless otherwise stated in writing by BizBOOM!. BizBOOM! reserves the right to bill your credit card or billing information on file with us. BizBOOM! provides a 10 day grace period from the time the invoice is generated and when it must be paid. Any invoice that is outstanding for 7 days and not paid will result in a $10 late fee and/or an account suspension until account balance has been paid in full. The $10 late fee is applied in addition to whatever else is owed to BizBOOM! for services rendered. Access to the account will not be restored until payment has been received. Please note that the late fee for hosting services other than Business Hosting Packages are at a rate of 10%.

It is the customer's responsibility to notify our sales team via email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. after paying for a domain renewal and to ensure the email is received and acted upon. Domain renewal notices and invoices are provided as a courtesy reminder and BizBOOM! cannot be held responsible for failure to renew a domain or failure to notify a customer about a domain's renewal.

Subsequently, domain renewals are billed and renewed 30 days before the renew date. It is the customer's responsibility to notify our sales team via email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for any domain registration cancellation. No refunds can be given, once a domain is renewed. All domain registrations, and renewals are final.

Invoices that have been paid more than once with multiple Paypal Subscriptions can only be added as credit towards the account and cannot be refunded via Paypal. If you require assistance with this provision, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

BizBOOM! reserves the right to change the monthly payment amount and any other charges at anytime.

Backups and Data Loss:

our use of this service is at your sole risk. Our backup service runs once a week, overwrites any of our previous backups made, and only one week of backups are kept. This service is provided to you as a courtesy. BizBOOM! is not responsible for files and/or data residing on your account. You agree to take full responsibility for files and data transferred and to maintain all appropriate backup of files and data stored on BizBOOM! servers.

Cancellations and Refunds:

BizBOOM! reserves the right to cancel, suspend, or otherwise restrict access to the account at any time with or without notice.

Exchange rate fluctuations for international payments are constant and unavoidable. All refunds are processed in U.S. dollars, and will reflect the exchange rate in effect on the date of the refund. All refunds are subject to this fluctuation and BizBOOM! is not responsible for any change in exchange rates between time of payment and time of refund.

Customers may cancel at any time via the cancellation form provided in your BizBOOM! billing/support account. BizBOOM! gives you an unconditional 30 day money back guarantee on managed shared hosting.

Cancellations requested after the initial 30 days for Shared accounts will go into effect on the renewal date for that particular hosting package. Unless specifically requested, the account will remain active until the period expires. If the account is eligible, any request for a refund outside of the initial 30 day period will be given on a prorated basis with any previous extended term discount withheld. Refunds are to be determined once the account has been cancelled. Payments older than 60 days may require a refund via PayPal or mailed check due to our merchant account policies and procedures.

The following methods of payments are non-refundable, and refunds will be posted as credit to the hosting account:

  • Bank Wire Transfers
  • Western Union Payments
  • Checks
  • Money orders

There are no refunds on dedicated servers, administrative fees, and install fees for custom software. Refund requests for .com, .net., and .org domain names (made within the 30 day money-back guarantee period) will have the common market value subtracted for those tld's. Any ccTLD's domain name purchases are non-refundable. Please note that domain refunds will only be considered if they were ordered in conjunction with a hosting package. Eligibility of said refunds will be determined at the time of cancellation.

Only first-time accounts are eligible for a refund. For example, if you've had an account with us before, canceled and signed up again, you will not be eligible for a refund or if you have opened a second account with us.

Cancellation Requests must be received prior to the next billing period. Requests received after the billing period date will be billed an additional month of service. Cancellation Requests will not be processed until all outstanding invoices have been paid.

Violations of the Terms of Service will waive the refund policy.

Resource Usage:

User may not:

  • Use 25% or more of system resources for longer then 90 seconds. There are numerous activities that could cause such problems; these include: CGI scripts, FTP, PHP, HTTP, etc.
  • Run stand-alone, unattended server-side processes at any point in time on the server. This includes any and all daemons, such as IRCD.
  • Run any type of web spider or indexer (including Google Cash / AdSpy) on shared servers.
  • Run any software that interfaces with an IRC (Internet Relay Chat) network.
  • Run any bit torrent application, tracker, or client. You may link to legal torrents off-site, but may not host or store them on our shared servers.
  • Participate in any file-sharing/peer-to-peer activities.
  • Run any gaming servers such as counter-strike, half-life, battlefield1942, etc.
  • Run cron entries with intervals of less than 15 minutes.
  • Run any MySQL queries longer than 15 seconds. MySQL tables should be indexed appropriately.
  • When using PHP include functions for including a local file, include the local file rather than the URL. Instead of include("http://yourdomain.com/include.php") use include("include.php").
  • To help reduce usage, do not force html to handle server-side code (like php and shtml).
  • Only use https protocol when necessary; encrypting and decrypting communications is noticeably more CPU-intensive than unencrypted communications.

Backup Limit:

Any shared account using more than 20 gigs of disk space will be removed from our off site weekly backup with the exception of Databases continuing to be backed up. All data will continue to be mirrored to a secondary drive which helps protect against data loss in the event of a drive failure.

INODES:

This section applies to Simple Shared Hosting Plans.

The use of more than 100,000 inodes on any shared account may potentially result in a warning first, and if no action is taken future suspension. Accounts found to be exceeding the 100,000 inode limit will automatically be removed from our backup system to avoid over-usage, however databases will still be backed up. Every file (a webpage, image file, email, etc) on your account uses up 1 inode.

Sites that slightly exceed our inode limits are unlikely to be suspended; however, accounts that constantly create and delete large numbers of files on a regular basis, have hundreds of thousands of files, or cause file system damage may be flagged for review and/or suspension. The primary cause of excessive inodes seems to be due to users leaving their catchall address enabled, but never checking their primary account mailbox. Over time, tens of thousands of messages (or more) build up, eventually pushing the account past our inode limit. To disable your default mailbox, login to cPanel and choose "Mail", then "Default Address", "Set Default Address", and then type in: :fail: No such user here.

Bandwidth Usage:

You are allocated a monthly bandwidth allowance. This allowance varies depending on the hosting package you purchase. Should your account pass the allocated amount we reserve the right to suspend the account until the start of the next allocation, suspend the account until more bandwidth is purchased at an additional fee, suspend the account until you upgrade to a higher level of package, terminate the account and/or charge you an additional fee for the overages. Unused transfer in one month cannot be carried over to the next month.

Money back Guarantee:

On dedicated servers no full refund will be honored -- the 30 day money back guarantee does not apply. We reserve the right to refund a prorated amount or no refund at all.

BizBOOM!'s managed shared servers carry a 30 day unconditional money back guarantee on them. If you are not completely satisfied with our services within the first 30 days of your service, you will be given a full refund of the contract amount. Remember, this is only for monthly shared packages and does not apply to dedicated servers, administrative fees, install fees for custom software, or domain name purchases.

BizBOOM! will not activate new orders or activate new packages for customers who have an outstanding balance with BizBOOM!. For a new order to be setup or a new package to be activated, you must have a balance of $0.00, unless otherwise stated by BizBOOM! in writing.

Uptime Guarantee:

If your shared server has a physical downtime that is not within the 99.9% uptime you may receive one month of credit on your account. Approval of the credit is at the discretion of BizBOOM! dependent upon justification provided. Third party monitoring service reports may not be used for justification due to a variety of factors including the monitor's network capacity/transit availability. The uptime of the server is defined as the reported uptime from the operating system and the Apache Web Server which may differ from the uptime reported by other individual services. To request a credit, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with justification. All requests must be made in writing via email. Uptime guarantees only apply to shared solutions. Dedicated servers are covered by a network guarantee in which the credit is prorated for the amount of time the server is down which is not related to our uptime guarantee.

Reseller: Client Responsibility:

Resellers are responsible for supporting their clients. BizBOOM! does not provide support to our Reseller's Clients. If a reseller's client contacts us, we reserve the right to place the client account on hold until the reseller can assume their responsibility for their client. All support requests must be made by the reseller on their clients' behalf for security purposes. Resellers are also responsible for all content stored or transmitted under their reseller account and the actions of their clients'. BizBOOM! will hold any reseller responsible for any of their clients actions that violate the law or the terms of service.

Shared (non-reseller accounts) / Semidedicated Servers:

Shared accounts may not resell web hosting to other people, if you wish to resell hosting you must use a reseller account. Semi-dedicated servers are not backed up. You must maintain your own backups.

Dedicated Servers:

BizBOOM! reserves the right to reset the password on a dedicated server if the password on file is not current so that we may do security audits as required by our datacenter. It is the responsibility of the client to ensure that there is a valid email address and current root password on file for their dedicated server on file to prevent downtime from forced password resets. BizBOOM! reserves the right to audit servers as needed and to perform administrative actions at the request of our datacenter. Dedicated servers are NOT backed up by us and it is the responsibility of the client to maintain backups or have a solution for this. You may purchase an additional hard drive and maintain backups to it as the simplest solution. Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you wish to obtain a secondary hard drive. It is your responsibility to maintain backups.

Price Change:

The amount you pay for hosting will never increase from the date of purchase. We reserve the right to change prices listed on bizboom.net, and the right to increase the amount of resources given to plans at any time.

Coupons:

Discounts and coupon codes are reserved for first-time accounts *or first-time customers* only and may not be used towards the purchase of a domain registration unless otherwise specified. If you have signed up using a particular domain, you may not resign up for that domain using another coupon at a later date. Any account found in violation of these policies will be reviewed by our sales department and the appropriate invoices will be added to the account. Coupon abuse will not be tolerated and may result in the suspension or termination of the account. Coupons or discounts are only valid towards the initial purchase, and do not affect the renewal or recurring price.

Indemnification:

Customer agrees that it shall defend, indemnify, save and hold BizBOOM! harmless from any and all demands, liabilities, losses, costs and claims, including reasonable attorney's fees asserted against BizBOOM!, its agents, its customers, officers and employees, that may arise or result from any service provided or performed or agreed to be performed or any product sold by customer, its agents, employees or assigns.

An arbitrator from the American Arbitration Association or the National Arbitration Forum will be selected in the state of California. Arbitrators shall be attorneys or retired judges and shall be selected pursuant to the applicable rules. All decisions rendered by the arbitrator will be binding and final. The arbitrator's award is final and binding on all parties. The Federal Arbitration Act, and not any state arbitration law, governs all arbitration under this Arbitration Clause.

Services Provided by BizBOOM!

BizBOOM! will provide Internet server rental ("the Service") to its members for the express purpose of allowing customers to provide http Internet content to the general public. The Service allows BizBOOM! members to maintain Internet websites, receive and maintain e-mail accounts and access web space via FTP to upload files for their websites. BizBOOM! members will use the provided services in a manner consistent with any and all applicable laws. BizBOOM! provides the Services exclusively and makes no effort to edit, control, monitor or restrict the content of data other than as necessary to provide such Services. BizBOOM! reserves the right to refuse service to potential and/or existing customers to protect its existing paying customers. If any of the below violations are committed, BizBOOM! can terminate client's account without notification.

BizBOOM! provides timely web site hosting support to our clients through emails and phone. By accepting your client contract agreement with bizboom.net you agree not to abuse, whether verbally or physically or whether in person, via email, live chat or telephone or otherwise (a) any other customer of BizBOOM! and any employee or contractor of BizBOOM!.

Client Content:

Client agrees that web pages and files uploaded to servers will not violate any state, national or foreign laws or regulations; infringe on any intellectual property rights of BizBOOM! or any third party; be defamatory, slanderous or trade libellous; be threatening or harassing; be discriminatory based on gender, race, age; promote hate; or contain viruses or other computer programming defects which result in damage to BizBOOM! or any third party. Customers may not run IRC, bots or clients. Clients may not use BizBOOM! servers for file storage unrelated to the client's web site; storage space is for active web site file pages only. BizBOOM!' shared hosting account holders may not act as a reseller, which means that clients may not host any web sites in their addon domains that are not domains owned by the client on record at BizBOOM!. You will need to opt-in for our reseller hosting service. Unacceptable uses also include: Bulk unsolicited emailing, unsolicited e-mailings, newsgroup spamming, child pornography, hardcore pornography or links to such sites, copyrighted MP3, copyrighted music, copyrighted video, illegal content, copyright infringement, trademark infringement, warez, cracks, software serial numbers, proxy(ies) and image/file sharing web sites. BizBOOM! will be the sole and final arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this policy. BizBOOM! does not normally monitor the contents of clients servers, however if suspicion occurs, BizBOOM! reserves the right to investigate and terminate the clients subscription to the service.

Disk Space and Bandwidth Features:

We do set limits on the disk space and bandwidth (data transfer) that we provide in plans that are marked accordingly. We want you to have the resources available to you to build a great online presence. Even though we want you to succeed, we need to ensure that we're providing all of our customers with optimum service. As such we do require all of our customers to be fully compliant with our Excessive Resource User Policy/Terms of Service and utilize disk space and bandwidth related to normal operation of a personal or small business web site. If a customer's hosting account is found to have violated the client content, excessive resource user policy and/or is storing files for archiving purposes, the contents will be removed and while we make best effort to contact customers before hand, this can occur without notice.

Excessive Resource User Policy:

Resources are defined as bandwidth, memory and/or processor utilization. BizBOOM! offers a shared web hosting service in which environment customers may share resources with other customers, therefore it is imperative that BizBOOM! control any excessive usage by customers so that they do not disrupt the service quality of other customers using the same resources. A website is considered using "Excessive amounts of resources" when it monopolies the resources available using 8% or more of system resources for longer than 60 seconds. There are numerous issues that could cause such problems, including but not limited to: cgi scripts, FTP, HTTP, etc. Any site that consumes over the account limit of bandwidth is also considered an "excessive resource" user. In the event of excessive resource usage BizBOOM! may act in the following manner: if the excessive usage may cause a disruption of service to any other customer, BizBOOM! may suspend that customer's account prior to notifying that customer, BizBOOM! may also contact the "excessive usage" customer prior to taking any action if BizBOOM! feels that the excessive usage will not interfere with the service of any other customer. Client suspensions prior to notification by BizBOOM! is rare and is only implemented in extreme circumstances and is intended to prevent the misuse of our servers. The client whom is using "excessive resources" may be asked to upgrade his/her package to one of our dedicated server packages to reduce their excessive usage utilization in the future. BizBOOM! will be the sole and final arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this policy.

No "Spam":

UCE/UBE or "Spam" originating from a server located on our network or associated with a BizBOOM! server is not tolerated. This includes any e-mail that promotes web sites hosted on a server located on the BizBOOM! network but is sent from an e-mail address not associated with that BizBOOM! account. Client shall not use their BizBOOM! services for chain letters, junk mail, bulk-email, or any use of distribution lists to any person who has not given specific permission to be included in such a process. BizBOOM! reserves the right to deactivate or terminate any account(s) upon any indication of such activity without notice.

Excessive Exploits:

BizBOOM! allows 3rd party scripts to be uploaded/installed from our auto-installer or manually (those scripts that are/aren't included in the auto-installer) on your web hosting account. It is the responsibility of our web hosting clients to maintain the latest exploit free version of the scripts. If a script that our web hosting clients uploads to our servers is found to have security lapses and allows a third party to "hack", "exploit", "deface" their site(s) it is the responsibility of our clients to either remove that script or BizBOOM! reserves the right to terminate that clients' account and provide them with a prorated refund.

False Information:

Customer agrees not to post false or inaccurate information to news groups in violation of the news groups rules and regulations. If any news groups or service provider contacts BizBOOM! concerning unethical, false or unlawful activities by you, BizBOOM! reserves the right to suspend or terminate your service with or without notice.

Licensed Software Only:

Client agrees to use only properly licensed third party software in connection with Client's use of the Services.

Back-Up Files:

BizBOOM! provides the tools needed to create back ups of account data. BizBOOM! also backs up its servers weekly and retains a copy for 7 days for disaster recovery purposes only. It is the responsibility of the customer to keep up-to-date archives of their backed up data. BizBOOM! does not provide or keep records or copies of our clients web site files for customer use and is not responsible for any loss of data.

Transfers

Our transfers team will make every effort to help you move your site to us. However, transfers are provided as a courtesy service, and we can not make guarantees regarding the availability, possibility, or time required to complete an account transfer. Each hosting company is configured differently, and some hosting platforms save data in an incompatible or proprietary format, which may make it extremely difficult if not impossible to migrate some or all account data. We will try our best, but in some cases we may be unable to assist you in a transfer of data from an old host.

The free transfer services are available for 30 days from your sign up date. Transfers outside of the 30 day free period will incur a charge; please contact a member of the transfers department with specific details to receive a price quote.

In the event that the client opts to leave our hosting service, it is the responsibility of the client and/or their new hosting provider to transfer the account, which includes, but is not limited to, website files, email accounts, and databases. If you would like to have BizBOOM! assist you with this, this service will incur a charge.

Payment, Renewal, Cancellations

Payment Obligations:

Full payment is required in advance before hosting service is established. BizBOOM! sends out invoices that are due every pay period. You are given fifteen (15) days to fully pay the invoice. You warrant and represent that the information you supply in the Order Form (or other information that BizBOOM! may require) is accurate and truthful. All payment-due notices will be sent by e-mail. No bills or invoices will be sent by postal mail or fax. If payment was not received by the due-date, your account may be suspended. It is the client's responsibility to ensure that payment is made to BizBOOM! prior to the renewal date and although BizBOOM! sends renewal notices to our customers prior to their renewal date, because of the ability for a customer to change their contact email addresses without notifying BizBOOM!, the customer is ultimately responsible for remembering their renewal date and to make sure payment is made upon the renewal.

Renewals:

It is the obligation of the BizBOOM! customer to know when their account comes up for renewal, and if their intention is to not renew their account they must fill out the BizBOOM! cancellation form 10 business days prior to their account's renewal date to ensure that BizBOOM! billing department receives the cancellation request well in advance of the renewal date so that they can stop any renewal charges. BizBOOM! clients receive an automated email notification 7 days prior to the renewal date of their account informing them that their renewal date is approaching. It is the customer's responsibility to ensure that BizBOOM! has a valid email address for which we can send out renewal notices to our clients. If BizBOOM! does not receive a cancellation request prior to the customer's renewal we will renew the clients' account on the renewal date and we will apply the appropriate charges. Accounts will be automatically renewed under the same time and fee structure as the plan that the client signed up for (unless plan changes were made or upgraded between the time when the client signed up & their renewal date). The 30 day money back guarantee applies only to the start date of the clients' service with BizBOOM! and does not apply to renewals of service.

Late Fees:

Clients have the option to pay an invoice at any time by logging into their BizBOOM! account and submitting a payment. An invoice that is not paid by the due date is automatically marked overdue in the system. If an invoice is overdue by more than 10 days (or 1 day for VPS, Dedicated, Dynamic, or Cloud) (the grace period), the account is automatically assessed a 10% late fee. If an invoice is overdue by more than 15 days (or 5 days for VPS, Dedicated, Dynamic, or Cloud), the account is automatically suspended, and if the invoice is more than 120 days late (or 10 days for VPS, Dedicated, Dynamic, or Cloud), the account is automatically scheduled for termination and a $50.00 fee is added to the account. To reactivate an account that is suspended for failure to submit a payment within the grace period, a payment for the original invoiced amount plus late fees must be submitted to BizBOOM!.

Cancellation & Refunds:

Should you become dissatisfied with our services within the first 30 days of your account activation, BizBOOM! will refund your hosting fee subject to the money back guarantee terms listed in this agreement. Refunds are valid ONLY for shared hosting. No refunds will be given for Virtual Servers, Dedicated Servers, or Cloud Hosting services. Refunds are not available for customers after the 30 days of account activation. You may however cancel your account at any time in order to make sure that your account is not renewed. You will need to contact customer service and verify information before cancellation takes place. All cancellation requests MUST be in writing. You will be charged in full for the entire month in which you cancelled your account. Cancellation requests received AFTER your billing date will be cancelled at the end of the billing cycle. Accounts which have negative balances will be sent to collections and all services will be terminated, including domain registrations. Cancellation requests for virtual servers, dedicated servers, and cloud hosting must be submitted 30 days in advance. Cancellation requests for virtual servers, dedicated servers, dynamic servers, and cloud hosting will be processed the next business day, and be effective after 30 days. Refunds are never available for domain registrations. Domain Names transferred to our service incur an additional year of registration and therefore are considered a domain registration. Domain registration fees vary depending on the domain name chosen. Domain names of customers which leave our hosting service will be refunded the package price total less the domain registration fee if the customer leaves BizBOOM! hosting service within the 30 day money back guarantee. In addition refunds are not available for additional services which you may purchase at BizBOOM! for instance an additional domain name we may purchase for a client is not refundable and a dedicated IP which we may setup for a client for a charge is not refundable. Further, refunds are not offered on any of our web site maintenance packages. Refunds are not available for discounted web hosting rates, such as, but not limited to, payment for quarterly, 6-month, annual, or biennial payments.Web site files are the responsibility of the BizBOOM! customer and should an BizBOOM! customer decide to cancel their service it is the customer's responsibility to make sure that they have backed up & downloaded the web site files and any emails from the BizBOOM! server prior to requesting that BizBOOM! cancels their account. Once the cancelation request has been submitted to BizBOOM! a cancelattion of the web site hosting service may occur anytime after the request is received by BizBOOM! and when a cancelation request is completed the client's hosting account with BizBOOM! and their web site files are permenantly removed from the BizBOOM! servers. Therefore again it is the client's obligation to ensure that they have downloaded their web site files and any emails from the server prior to their cancellation request.

99% Service Level Agreement " SLA":

BizBOOM! offers its clients a 99% network uptime guarantee for customer satisfaction purposes and also to ensure that your business is running problem free. BizBOOM! will try to maintain maximum uptime. BizBOOM! is not responsible for any downtime caused by the client.

As a part of our strive to achieve industry leading customer satisfaction, the customer will be refunded all hosting charges made to their credit card minus any setup fees, domain name costs, or maintenance fees which are non-refundable. The guarantee does not apply to accounts with non-use, misuse, and/or abuse of this agreement. Domain name registrations are also non-refundable. Domain Names transferred to our service incur an additional year of registration and therefore are considered a domain registration. Domain registration fees vary depending on the domain name. Domain names of customers which leave our hosting service will be refunded the package price total less the domain registration fee if the customer leaves BizBOM! hosting service within the 30 day money back guarantee.
