CLAUSE 4: OUR PRODUCTS
CLAUSE 4.1: DOMAINS
- Domain Registration. We make no representations as to the availability of a particular domain name requested for registration by you (Domain). A Domain will always be registered in or transferred into your name, not Stablepoint's. You should manage your Domain's WHOIS data through your Stablepoint client area at clients.stablepoint.com. It is your responsibility to ensure that all data is accurate. Your Domain may be taken offline if you fail to keep your contact data up to date and it cannot be verified. To provide the best service we may from time to time change the registrar that a Domain is held with, at our discretion and without notice. Such a change does not impact your domain name usage.
- For all applicable gTLDs you agree that we will act as a Designated Agent, in accordance with ICANN's Transfer Policy, for you whenever a request is made to update the registrant contact details associated with a Domain. In that respect, you authorise us to approve a change of registrant of any change to the registrant's details on behalf of you.
- Checking the registration/renewal. Our service is limited to the forwarding of your order to the registry. It is your sole responsibility to ensure that the domain has been registered, renewed and/or transferred as appropriate. We accept no liability for any failure to register or transfer the Domain.
- Third Party terms and conditions. Domain registration is subject to third party terms and conditions including those from the relevant registry for the Domain extension. By submitting your order to us you are confirming that you will at all times and in all respects comply with ICANN's and any relevant registry's terms and conditions for domain registration and use. You will indemnify us in respect of any failure by you to comply with the terms of this Agreement or any failure to comply with ICANN or the registry's terms and conditions.
- Domain Renewals. We will endeavour to automatically renew a Domain on your behalf when it is due for renewal, save where you have given notice in accordance with clause 4.1 below or where you have set the Domain to either cancel or manual renewal in your control panel. We will not renew a Domain where no up to date payment method has been provided or where you fail to make payment as required.
- Detail of renewal. Renewals will ordinarily be renewed for the same duration as the initial registration period, unless you instruct in writing of any required amendment or modify the renewal settings in your client area. The renewal will be charged at the prevailing rate at the time of renewal. We shall take payment for Domain renewals up to 7 days prior to the Domain renewal date in order to ensure that the Domain is renewed on time.
- Domain Transfers and Ownership Terms. We shall determine the ownership of a registered Domain by reference to the details held on the Whois database. If the Whois database details are not determinative then we shall be entitled to request whatever supporting evidence we may require to ascertain ownership. It is your obligation to resolve any dispute over ownership with a third party. We are under no obligation to carry out a transfer request if we are not satisfied that the correct consents and permissions have been obtained.
- Basis of Transfer. You are solely responsible for completing any steps required to transfer the domain, including but not limited to: changing the Nominet IPSTAG of the domain, unlocking the domain name, providing the Authorisation code, and approving a transfer request. You must inform us if you wish to cancel a transfer and request a refund in accordance with our refund policy.
- Transfer Restrictions. You acknowledge that one year may be added and charged to some domain extensions when transferred. Some domains have maximum registration periods and you acknowledge this may prevent a transfer if the renewal would push the registration over the registry term limit. We will not initiate transfer of a Domain until the order has been placed and fully paid.
- Expired Domains. In the event that a domain name is not renewed by its expiry date it shall cease to operate and shall be deemed to be expired. A registered Domain shall expire if we are unable to take payment via the method provided, or where you have set the Domain to expire or fail to manually renew the Domain before the renewal date.
- Following the expiry date a domain may enter a grace and/or redemption period. In this situation you acknowledge that we may at our discretion, within three calendar days after the date of expiration of a Domain renew the Domain; or, park the Domain on different name servers from those set by you. Domains from registries which do not allow for a grace and/or redemption period may be unrecoverable by us following the expiry date, in which case our agreement will terminate immediately and without liability to us. Further, we are under no duty to attempt to recover such Domain.
- Provided that the relevant registry for the Domain allows a grace period, you acknowledge that you have the length of their grace period (for example, 30 days) following the expiry of the Domain ('the Grace Period') to contact us to retrieve and renew the Domain provided that you pay for said renewal in full and in cleared funds. On receipt of the renewal fee by us within the Grace Period, you will retain ownership of the Domain and as soon as reasonably practicable we shall restore the Domain to your control panel.
- You acknowledge that following the end of the Grace Period we may at our sole discretion carry out the following actions:
- auction the Domain;
- change the contact details; and/or
- transfer the Domain.
- If we do not receive the renewal fee within the Grace Period then our Agreement for that Domain will terminate immediately and without liability to us. Provided that the relevant registry of the Domain allows for a redemption period, if we receive a request from you to renew the Domain after the end of the Grace Period ('the Redemption Period'), you agree to pay the applicable redemption fee(s) plus the renewal fee(s) for the Domain(s). You acknowledge and agree that we are not obliged to take any action to renew or recover a Domain in the Redemption Period and will only make such attempts once the you have paid both the redemption and renewal fees. We make no guarantee that attempted renewals will be successful.
CLAUSE 4.2: HOSTING
- Free Domain Offer. Some of our hosting packages include a free domain registration or transfer. This applies to a limited number of domain extensions and may vary from time to time. We may allow or disallow a free registration or transfer at our discretion. All other extensions are excluded from this offer and will incur additional costs. Any reduction in fees for customers who wish to order using a different extension must be agreed in advance by us. The registration period is one year. Future renewals of these domains will incur our regular renewal rate.
- Purpose of Services. Unless explicitly stated to the contrary our services are intended to be used for the purposes of hosting websites and email. Batch processing, video encoding/transcoding, web crawling/spidering, archiving and online backup systems and any system for purposes other than hosting a website are not permitted on our shared or reseller hosting servers. You may only use such tools with our agreement in writing on a dedicated server. We reserve the right to take proactive action to maintain the stability of our systems for all clients. We explicitly forbid adult pornography streaming websites,
- Suitability of Hosting Environment. Some packages feature an 'unlimited' service, meaning we do not actively limit your account on either disk space or bandwidth (or both). However, to ensure system stability, accounts are limited by resource usage to ensure no one client can affect the service of others on shared or reseller servers. On dedicated servers, your resources are defined by the package you purchase.
- " Unlimited" Allowances. Any 'unlimited' allowances are subject to fair use and any customer using an amount of monthly bandwidth or disk space deemed excessive in comparison to the average usage by other customers on our platform may, at our discretion, be advised to improve website efficiency and/or configure a CDN, or upgrade to a bespoke solution and will be billed accordingly.
- Service Needs. If we feel that the service selected or purchased by you does not meet your service needs we will inform you of this and advise you of the appropriate service for your needs. We are under no obligation to continue to provide hosting services that are inadequate or unsuitable for your needs. Refusal to cooperate with an account move request may result in account suspension and/or termination.
- Migration Service. We offer a free migration service to help move your website from your previous provider to ourselves. This is a best-effort service. You acknowledge that you are the party most familiar with your website and we cannot know the intricacies of all the websites we host. We will take reasonable care to move your site files and data but it is your responsibility to give us suitable access to retrieve the data and to check that the site has been migrated successfully. We aim to migrate websites within 72 hours, though we do not guarantee any particular timeframe for the migration. In some cases we may be able to migrate emails, dns records and domain names also, but we do not warrant that we can move them successfully, or without interruption.
- Changes to the hosting environment. We reserve the right to change the hosting environment your website runs in. These changes will be made on a "like for like" basis and will not affect your use of the hosting environment. The only circumstances where material changes will be made to your website hosting environment will be to provide you with an 'upgrade'. You will be informed in writing of any changes that we make to the hosting environment. This may be:
- to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; and
- to implement minor technical adjustments and improvements, for example to address a security threat; and
- to change between location and provider. We offer a choice of server locations and providers. It may be that your desired location is not available, or your existing location is changed or shut down. We may at our discretion move to you an equivalent location or provider. (E.g. Microsoft Azure's cape town datacentre, to Microsoft Azure's Johannesburg datacenter, or AWS Bahrain to Alibaba Bahrain).
- Upstream Providers. You must agree to the terms of our upstream providers with emphasis on their terms of export law (e.g. software used should be licenced in the US for DigitalOcean). We have attempted to incorporate all of their relevant terms into this agreement. See Appendix A.
- CDN and Bandwidth Usage. In some locations where bandwidth prices are high due to relative lack of connectivity (e.g. the Middle East), or fluctuate, we may require you to use a CDN service we provide. A CDN service distributes worldwide traffic worldwide, rather than from your single server, thus speeding up page loads and reducing bandwidth from source. We will reasonably assist with the setup.
- No Guarantee. We make no guarantee to defend your website from a denial of service attack unless that service has been specifically offered and agreed. If you think you may be a DDOS target you should purchase a DDOS mitigation service from a third party such as Cloudflare.
- Service uptime. We endeavour to provide a 99.9% service uptime, excluding planned or emergency server maintenance or conditions beyond our reasonable control. All customers will be notified of planned maintenance as far as possible in advance through our status page and, should the maintenance last for longer than 30 minutes, via e-mail. In the event of a problem with your server, we shall ensure that a qualified engineer will be dealing with the problem within 30 minutes of being notified. In the rare event that your problem cannot be resolved within 30 minutes you will be notified. When notifying you we will provide you with the details of the problem along with an estimation of when the issue will be resolved. Notification may be via one of your contact methods or via our public status page (status.stablepoint.com).
- Backups. We take twice-daily backups of your websites and store them offsite, usually in the same geographic region (but not necessarily the same country) as your live server for the best performance. If you have data residency requirements please contact us to arrange a bespoke solution. We may exclude files we consider non-fundamental to the operation of your website, e.g. error logs, cpanel backups, cache files. Backups are a best effort service and we do not warrant that they are complete or regular. It is your responsibility to keep backups of your own website.
- Disruption to Services. We are not responsible for disruption to the services outside our control. We endeavour to choose providers that offer an extremely high level of performance and uptime but if our supply of the services is disrupted by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the disruption. This may be via our status page at status.stablepoint.com. We will not be liable for disruption caused by the event. We will not be responsible for network or hardware issues upstream of us. E.g. if AWS have an issue we will not be responsible for their problems or include this within our 99.9% uptime calculation.
CLAUSE 5: PROVIDING THE SERVICES
- Service costs. The costs of the services will be as displayed to you on our website.
- When we will provide the services. We will supply the services to you until the subscription expires or you end the contract as described in Clause 7 or we end the contract by written notice to you as described in Clause 9.
- What will happen if you do not give required information to us. We will need certain information from you so that we can supply the services to you as stated in the sign up section for the services on our website. We may contact you to ask for further information or to check the information you have provided to us. If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for any delay in supplying the services or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.
- Reasons we may suspend or disable the supply of services to you. We may have to suspend the supply of a service to:
- deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes;
- update the product to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements;
- make changes to the product as requested by you or notified by us to you (see Clause 6);
- when required by law;
- where we believe that you are in breach of any material term of this Agreement;
- to resolve any third-party claims or actions;
- to avoid financial loss or legal liability.
- Your rights if we suspend the supply of services. We will contact you in advance to tell you we will be suspending supply of the services, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency. If we have to suspend the services for longer than 24 hours in any 7 day period we will adjust the price so that you do not pay for products while they are suspended, save where the suspension is as a result of your breach of this Agreement or in accordance with clause 6.5 b (b) to (g) above. You may contact us to end the contract for a service if we suspend it, or tell you we are going to suspend it, in each case for a period of more than 120 hours and we will refund any sums you have paid in advance for the service in respect of the period after you end the contract save where the suspension is as a result of your breach of this Agreement.
- We may also suspend supply of the service if you do not pay. If you do not pay us for the products when you are supposed to (see Clause 10.6), we may suspend the supply of the services until you have paid us the outstanding amounts. We will contact you to tell you we are suspending supply of the services. As well as suspending the services we can also charge you interest on your overdue payments. Once payment has been made in accordance with these terms, we will use reasonable endeavours to ensure that the service is restored to you within 24 hours.
- Service suspension. If your service has been suspended or goes overdue, we may no longer retain a copy of your data or website. Your website IP address may also change. This is due to the nature of us using global cloud providers: we will not be responsible for the cost of keeping your service running if you fail to pay your invoices.
CLAUSE 6: YOUR OBLIGATIONS UNDER THE CONTRACT
You are responsible for the content on your Account. Customers are responsible for all scripts, data and other objects on their accounts. Abusive scripts are scripts which interfere with our systems and/or the accounts of other customers, cause harm to any other computer system or user, or engage in any type of fraudulent activity.

- We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
- We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors or for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation
- We shall not be responsible for any claimed damages, including incidental and consequential damages, which may arise from our servers going offline or being unavailable for any reason whatsoever. Furthermore, we shall not be responsible for any claimed damages, including incidental or consequential damages, resulting from the corruption or deletion of any web site from one of our servers; loss of service or any costs incurred due to a configuration or service issue resulting from our provided services. All damages shall be limited to the immediate termination of service.
- We are not liable for business losses. If you use the products for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
- Limit of liability. Save where you are acting as a Consumer within the meaning of the Consumer Rights Act 2015 our aggregate liability shall be limited to twice the fees paid by you for the services in relation to which your claim arises during the 12 month period prior to the claim.
CLAUSE 14: HOW WE MAY USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
CLAUSE 15: OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS
- We may transfer this agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will contact you to let you know if we plan to do this. If you are unhappy with the transfer you may contact us to end the contract within 10 days of us telling you about it and we will refund you any payments you have made in advance for any complete month of service not provided.
- You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else (except that you can always transfer our guarantee). You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing. Transfer requests can be made via support ticket in clients.stablepoint.com
- Nobody else has any rights under this contract. This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
- If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
- Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us from taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
- Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in the English courts. If you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Northern Irish or the English courts.
