Web Hosting Services:

The client may choose to host the site at Baguio Webs. Clients who use Baguio Webs hosting services must respect server load limitations. This means that clients may not use our servers to send spam or other emails at a rate faster than 100 messages/hour. Additionally, websites which utilize dynamic coding may cause a server strain at times, especially when higher traffic volume is at work. In extreme cases, this may cause the server administrator to shut down the offending website.

While we do not limit the number of email accounts a Baguio Webs hosting account may have, the overall disk space and bandwidth/traffic allocation of the web hosting/email server are specified according to the hosting plan the client signed up for. If a client exceeds these allocations, a larger web hosting package may be required.

Domain Name Registration:

If requested by Client, the Developer shall cooperate with Client in registering the Domain Name with Namecheap.com. Client shall be responsible for all registration expenses and shall own all right, title and interest in and to the Domain Name and all Intellectual Property Rights related thereto. Unless otherwise specified by Client, the Developer shall list Client’s project liaison, as the administrative, technical and billing contact.
