  • The cessation of the rental will occur on the last day of the month in which the cancellation notification is received. We will confirm the date of rental cessation to you by email.
  • Any rental payment received up to the date of rental cessation will be applied to that rental and any surplus balance held on account will be refunded to you.

  • It is your responsibility to ensure that you obtain a backup of any Website Content and emails before they are removed and deleted.

  • If you do not already own the domain name to which your website will be addressed, we are happy to acquire a domain name for you.
  • It is your responsibility to choose a suitable domain name and decide which domain name extension is appropriate for you (eg .com, .co.za).
  • We are happy to assist and advise you with the domain name process. However, because the domain name system operates on a first come, first served basis, we cannot guarantee that any particular name &/or extension is available.
  • When a suitable and available domain name is identified we will confirm the cost of acquisition to you. When we receive your payment for this from you, we will proceed to acquire the domain name.
  • You will be recorded as the owner of the domain name. In order to ensure that the domain name can be configured and maintained appropriately you give authority for us or our preferred hosting company to be recorded as the administrator and technical contact for the domain name.
  • Domain names require annual renewal, for which there is a cost. We will notify you prior to the renewal date that the annual renewal is due for payment and the amount to pay.
  • When we receive your renewal payment, we will proceed to renew your domain name. Notwithstanding this, it is your responsibility to ensure that your domain name is renewed.
  • If you do not take steps – with or without our requests to renew – to renew your domain name, it will ultimately be deleted from the registry according to their procedure.
  • If your domain name is deleted from the registry then your website will no longer be visible to the outside world. The deletion of your domain name from the registry will constitute a notification to cancel your rental agreement with us and the Cancellation of Rental terms will then apply.



  • Our website rental service is only applicable to domain names that are hosted in our Website Environment. We do not offer our rental services where the domain name &/or the website is hosted with another hosting company.
  • If you already own a domain name to which the website will be addressed, then this domain name must be transferred to our Website Environment.
  • The transfer process will be initiated by ourselves. However, this process will only commence on receipt from you of email confirmation that we can apply for transfer.
  • The transfer process will probably involve an email to you by the registry seeking confirmation of the transfer. To be successful, you must confirm that you give approval for the transfer. It is your responsibility to look out for any such emails and approve as requested. We cannot take responsibility for delayed or failed transfer requests if you do not take the required actions on your side of the process.
  • If you are using your domain name in another hosting environment, it is your responsibility to take appropriate steps with that host to cancel the hosting agreement. If you have website and/or email content in that environment that you wish to retain, it is your responsibility to take backups of any of the website content and emails.
  • We take no responsibility for any additional costs you incur due to your failure to cancel the other hosting agreement and we take no responsibility for any lost website content or emails that you wished to retain from that hosting environment.
  • On successful transfer of your domain name to our Website Environment, you give authority for us or our preferred hosting company to be recorded as the administrator and technical contact for the domain name.



  • Our website rental service is only applicable to domain names that are hosted in our Website Environment. We do not offer our rental services where the domain name &/or the website is hosted with another hosting company.
  • As the owner of the domain name to which the website is addressed, you are entitled to transfer your domain out of our Website Environment to another host.
  • The procedure for the transfer of domain names is prescribed by the domain name registry company and is neither controlled by us or our preferred hosting company. The onus is on you to acquaint yourself with the procedure and to follow it as required. We will neither hinder nor prevent a valid request for domain name transfer.
  • The act of applying to transfer your domain name to another host will constitute a notification to cancel your rental agreement with us and the Cancellation of Rental Agreement will then apply.
  • The transfer of a domain name to another host does not mean that the website will also transfer.
  • As the owner and hirer of the website, we will not, under any circumstances, transfer the website for use on another hosting environment.
  • It is your responsibility to ensure that you obtain a backup of any Website Content &/or emails before it is removed and deleted in line with the Cancellation of Rental Agreement.



  • It is your responsibility to provide the content that will populate your chosen website layout.
  • Website Content will include among other things:
    • Business logo
    • Photographs (& brief descriptions of each)
    • Graphical illustrations
    • Text
    • Contact details

    • Initial blog posts (Gold Service)
    • Product descriptions, photographs and prices (Platinum Service)
    • Email address name(s)
    • Other technical items that may be required eg Google APIs, Payment Gateway credentials.
  • To facilitate the provision of Website Content, we will provide you with a Content Inventory for your chosen layout. The Content Inventory will show where each item of content will be positioned on the website and give clear guidance as to what is required.
  • We are happy to assist, advise and suggest with regard to Website Content, but such assistance does not diminish your responsibility to provide the content.
  • It is your responsibility to ensure that you are not in breach of any copyright to place and use the content on your website. This is your sole responsibility and we do not take any responsibility for you in this regard.
  • As the website rental will not commence until all required Website Content is received, it is advisable that the Content Inventory is completed as soon as possible, and any problems are communicated to us for assistance.
  • Because a website is a living document, we recommend that it is better to go live with a full set of content that is to hand at the time, than to delay going live whilst awaiting a perfect set of content.



  • When your chosen layout has been populated with your Website Content, we will make the web site available online to you to review.
  • We will conduct our own process of checking and testing to ensure that the website reflects your Website Content and functions as expected; however it is your responsibility to review the website to be certain that it meets with your expectations and approval prior to going live.
  • To facilitate your approval of the Website Content, we will provide you with a Review Inventory for your chosen layout. The Review Inventory will list all aspects of the Website Content and functionality that should be reviewed and approved.
  • If your review identifies an aspect of the Website Content that requires amendment, you should notify the item and nature of the problem to us so that we can resolve. Once resolved we will notify you so that you can check that the resolution is to your satisfaction.
  • When you are satisfied that the Website Content and functionality of the website is to your expectation, you must send a signed copy of the Review Inventory back to us to notify us that you approve the website to go live.
  • On receipt of your approval, we will enable the website to go live. At this point, the rental period will commence.


  • Following the commencement of the rental period, you will have the opportunity to update your Website Content at a frequency that is detailed in your chosen service plan.
  • It is your responsibility to decide which content to update and to forward the content to us in good time for your scheduled update.
  • So that we know where the new content should be located on the website, all updated content must refer to the appropriate part of the Content Inventory.
  • Once your Website Content update is complete, we will make the revised draft web site available online for you to review.
  • When you are satisfied that the updated Website Content is correct and you notify us of this, we will update the live website with the updated version.
  • If the Website Content update is minor &/or only involves photographs, you can notify us to perform the update directly to the live web site. We will notify you when the update has been performed so that you can check that it is to your expectation.



  • You may upgrade the level of your rental service at any time by sending an email notification to us indicating the required service level and chosen website layout.
  • Your existing Website Content will be used to populate the new website layout, however additional Website Content will probably be required.
  • To facilitate the additional Website Content, we will provide you with a Content Inventory for your chosen layout that indicates where existing Website Content will be placed and where additional content is required.
  • As with the original website, it is your responsibility to provide the content that will populate your chosen website layout.
  • In order for your upgraded website to go live, the same approval process as detailed in Website Approval to Go Live must be followed.
  • On receipt of your approval, we will enable the upgraded website to go live. At this point, the upgraded rental period will commence.


  • Certain service plans allow you to add Website Content to the gallery and blog pages of your website.
  • We will provide you with adequate training and access to the website dashboard to enable you to add your content.
  • It is your responsibility to ensure that you have attained an adequate level of competence to be able to operate the self-service functionality.
  • If you decide that you would prefer to send the gallery and blog content to us to add, then we can do this for you either as part of a scheduled periodic Website Content update or as an ad hoc update for which an additional fee will be charged to you.


  • We will provide you with one or more email accounts in accordance with your chosen Service Plan.
  • The email address will correspond with the domain name to which your website is addressed. You may nominate the prefix of the email address(es) eg info, hello, your name etc.
  • The (primary) email address will be designated as a catchall account to receive any incoming emails regardless of prefix. Subsequent email addresses will be for the purpose of receiving only emails with predetermined prefixes.
  • Access to your email account will be by way of a Webmail account for which we will provide you with a user name and password for each account.
  • Your email access can be configured to work from a local program such as Microsoft Outlook. We will send you the necessary credentials to enable this. The set up of such email programs is your responsibility.
  • All passwords provided are long and randomly generated to maximise security. It is your responsibility to keep all passwords safe. In the event of a lost password we will provide you with a reset password.
