17) Backup Policy

Unlimited accounts exceeding 50GB will not be backed up.

Backups are kept for a period of 7 to 10 days. Once an account is terminated from our system, the backups are removed as well. We do a weekly snap shot of your website database and emails stored on the server. We keep one copy of your hosting accounts backup and do not provide an incremental backup service.

We advise all clients to make periodic backups (at least once a month or whenever updates are done to the website, database or mails). This can be done by downloading a copy of their website and data (files,DB and stored mail) to their local personal computer/devise. cPanel provides a useful backup section where it will compress your entire site databases and emails kept on the server, into one file for you to download. We advise this because it is very possible that due to system compromise, mistake or “act of god” that all data and backups might be lost and your copy will be the only one available. As unfortunate and unlikely as this would be , it is a possibility.

This includes loss of profits, revenue, cost of time/work or labour, anticipated savings, business transactions, goodwill or other contracts.

18.1) Our total liability to you for direct damages will be a maximum amount of: One month of your hosting fee (excluding addon products or domain registrations) or R2500; whichever is less.
