If hosting is required for the website, Linkni Internet Solutions Ltd will set up web hosting for Client with a professional hosting company known to be reliable. Linkni Internet Solutions Ltd makes no guarantees as to minimum “uptime” regarding hosting services that we offer and shall not be held responsible for any direct, indirect, special or consequential damages resulting from possible lapses in hosting services. Such possible damages include any lost profits or business interruption or loss of digital data.
Hosting accounts are payable in advance and for a 12 month period.
Note all hosting accounts are of a fixed size and finite – therefore we insist clients use POP settings for their main email accounts with settings set to remove email from the server no longer than 60 days. Other devices such as phones and tablets may use IMAP settings. If email is required to be stored on the cloud, we encourage our clients to consister using MS365 email or something similar. Failure to follow our policy will result in quotas being reached and services being suspended until settings are altered.
Renewal of hosting accounts – failure to pay for your hosting account renewal within 30 days of the invoice date may result in your account being suspended without notice. Warnings will be given by email that the invoice is due and suspension will occur if invoice remains unpaid.
IMPORTANT: Suspended accounts will be fully deleted after 30 days of suspension status if payment for the account has not been received. All website files and data will be deleted along with the hosting account.
Cancellation of hosting account – you must give 14 days notice from the date of hosting account renewal noted on your renewal invoice if you wish to cancel your hosting account for the upcoming annual period.

It is the responsibility of the Client to keep track of their domain name registration periods and ensure renewal of their domain names takes place when upcoming or due. If a domain name expires, Linkni Internet Solutions Ltd can not be held liable for this. However, Linkni Internet Solutions Ltd will make reasonable effort to contact the client regarding domain renewal when domain is upcoming for renewal when Linkni Internet Solutions Ltd is alerted by the registration company of this upcoming renewal.
Transfer of Domain Names
If you wish to transfer your domain name to another registrar we will of course change the IPS-TAG or unlock the domain and provide Auth Codes. However if a domain has recently been renewed then outstanding monies will be required to be paid before domain(s) can be transferred out.
Cancellation of Domain Names
We operate the procedure of auto renewing client domain names. If you wish to no longer renew a domain via ourselves, you must give us at least 2 months notice before the domain renewal date. This is so we can switch off auto-renew and not be charged for the renewal. Otherwise you will be liable to pay for the renewed domain.
