Subject to the terms of this Agreement, and contingent on Customer's satisfaction of INTELLIPLANS credit approval requirements, INTELLIPLANS agrees to provide the web hosting services described in the Order for the fees stated in the Order.
The initial service term of the Agreement shall begin on the date that INTELLIPLANS generates an email message to Customer announcing the activation of the Customer's account (the "Service Commencement Date") and shall continue for the number of months stated in the Order (the "Initial Term"). Upon expiration of the Initial Term, this Agreement shall automatically renew for the stated renewal terms of the same length as the Initial Term (each a "Renewal Term") unless INTELLIPLANS or Customer provides the other with written notice of non-renewal at least thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of the Initial Term or then-current Renewal Term, as applicable. The Initial Term and any Renewal Term may be referred to collectively in this Agreement as the "Term."
(a) Fees. Fees are payable in advance on the first day of each billing cycle. Customer's billing cycle shall be monthly or annually as indicated on the Order, beginning on the Service Commencement Date. INTELLIPLANS may require payment for the first billing cycle before beginning service. If the Order provides for credit/debit card billing, Customer authorizes INTELLIPLANS to bill subsequent fees to the credit/debit card on or after the first day of each successive billing cycle during the Term of this Agreement; otherwise INTELLIPLANS will invoice Customer via electronic mail to the Primary Customer Contact listed on the Order. Invoiced fees may be issued on or before the 1st day of each billing cycle, and the fees shall be due on the 14th day following invoice date, but in no event earlier than the first day of each billing cycle.
Payments must be made in United States dollars. Customer is responsible for providing INTELLIPLANS with changes to billing information (such as credit card expiration, change in billing address) At its option, INTELLIPLANS may accrue charges to be made to a credit/debit card until such charges exceed $10.00. INTELLIPLANS may charge interest on overdue amounts at the lesser of 1.5% per month or the maximum non-usurious rate under applicable law. INTELLIPLANS may suspend the service without notice if payment for the service is overdue. Fees not disputed within sixty (60) days of due date are conclusively deemed accurate. Customer agrees to pay INTELLIPLANS reasonable reinstatement fee following a suspension of service for non-payment, and to pay INTELLIPLANS reasonable costs of collection of overdue amounts, including collection agency fees, attorney fees, and court costs.
(b) Fee Increases. INTELLIPLANS may increase its fees for services effective the first day of a Renewal Term by giving notice to Customer of the new fees at least forty five (45) days prior to the beginning of the Renewal Term, and if Customer does not give a notice of non-renewal as provided in Section 2 above, the Customer shall be deemed to have accepted the new fee for that Renewal Term and any subsequent Renewal Terms (unless the fees are increased in the same manner for a subsequent Renewal Term).
(c) Taxes. At INTELLIPLANS request, Customer shall remit to INTELLIPLANS all sales, VAT, or similar tax imposed on the provision of the services (but not in the nature of an income tax on INTELLIPLANS), regardless of whether INTELLIPLANS fails to collect the tax at the time the related services are provided.
(d) Early Termination. Customer acknowledges that the amount of the fee for the service is based on Customer's agreement to pay the fee for the entire Initial Term, or Renewal Term, as applicable. In the event INTELLIPLANS terminates the Agreement for Customer's breach of the Agreement in accordance with Section 9 (Termination), or Customer terminates the service other than in accordance with Section 9 (Termination) for INTELLIPLANS breach, the unpaid fees for each billing cycle remaining in the Initial Term or then-current Renewal Term, as applicable, are due on the business day following termination of the Agreement.
(e) Money Back Guarantee. The thirty (30) day money back guarantee (the "Guarantee") offer is only applicable to credit card payments for Shared hosting plans within the first 30 days of a hosting account sign up. Other forms of payment and hosting plans are non-refundable. Dedicated and fully dedicated server payments are non-refundable. SSL certificates and domain registrations (including the value of any used free domain registrations included with the plan) are not refundable under any circumstances. Setup fees are non-refundable. Money back guarantee refund requests must be submitted within the 30 day period after sign up to qualify. Please refer to the money back guarantee page for more details. Cancellations outside our 30 day money back guarantee are not eligible for a refund or proration.
(f) Setup Fee. There is no setup free for our shared hosting packages, and if the Customer wishes to cancel INTELLIPLANS shared web hosting service within the Guarantee period starting from the Service Commencement Date, they shall be able to do so for any reason (aside from disablement for Terms of Service or Anti-Spam Policy violations).
(g) Anti-Spam Policy. Any violation of Crucial's Terms of Service or Anti-Spam Policy may, at INTELLIPLANS own discretion, result in immediate termination of Customer's account without refund.
Cancellations must be done in writing electronically via the cancellation form provided on our site. Once we receive your cancellation and have confirmed all necessary information with you via ticket, we will inform you with response to the cancellation ticket that your request has been received, then, within 72 hours, confirmation that your account has been cancelled. Upon submission of the cancellation form you should immediately receive an automatic email with a ticket number assigned to your request. We require that cancellations of service are done through the online form to (a) confirm your identity, (b) confirm in writing you are prepared for all files/emails to be removed, and (c) document the request. This process reduces the likelihood of mistakes, fraudulent/malicious requests, and ensures you are aware that the files, emails, and account may be removed immediately after a cancellation request is processed.
INTELLIPLANS has a zero tolerance policy for chargebacks. Any customer who disputes a credit card payment is subject to a $50.00 USD re-activation fee, immediate suspension, and/or account termination of their account at INTELLIPLANS discretion.
If you want a refund or have a billing related issue from us, simply make a request at the Support Center and we will do a computation of and provide the necessary refund.
Any chargeback made by you which involves a chargeback fee will be charged to your account. Moreover, we will suspend your account until full settlement of the chargeback and fee. Thus, it is important to communicate with us first before doing any chargebacks with your bank or credit card.
In order for your domain name to point to the server your new account is located on, you must change your DNS nameservers at your registrar. Our nameservers are located in your welcome email.
Please be aware that the above process is not known as a domain transfer. A domain transfer is if you want to physically transfer your domain to INTELLIPLANS and away from your original registrar.
INTELLIPLANS will take necessary steps to register domain names on behalf of the client when requested. However, clients are responsible for renewing their domain names.
INTELLIPLANS does not take responsibility for failing to renew domain names. If your domain name was registered via our company, you must check and take appropriate actions to renew a domain that is about to expire.
Customer agrees to use the service in compliance with applicable law and INTELLIPLANS Acceptable Use Policy (the "AUP"), which is hereby incorporated by reference in this Agreement. Customer agrees that INTELLIPLANS may, in its reasonable commercial judgment consistent with industry standards, amend the AUP from time to time to further detail or describe reasonable restrictions and conditions on Customer's use of the Services. Amendments to the AUP are effective on the earlier of INTELLIPLANS notice to Customer that an amendment has been made, or the first day of any Renewal Term that begins subsequent to the amendment. Customer agrees to cooperate with INTELLIPLANS reasonable investigation of any suspected violation of the AUP. In the event of a dispute between INTELLIPLANS and Customer regarding the interpretation of the AUP, INTELLIPLANS commercially reasonable interpretation of the AUP shall govern.
The Customer certifies that he or she is at least eighteen (18) years of age, or that their parent or legal guardian will act as the "Customer" in terms of this contract.
Customer represents and warrants to INTELLIPLANS that the information he, she or it has provided and will provide to INTELLIPLANS for purposes of establishing and maintaining the service is accurate. If Customer is an individual, Customer represents and warrants to INTELLIPLANS that he or she is at least eighteen (18) years of age. INTELLIPLANS may rely on the instructions of the person listed as the Primary Customer Contact on the Order with regard to Customer's account until Customer has provided a written notice changing the Primary Customer Contract.
INTELLIPLANS may, at its discretion, suspend or terminate service of any client that is abusive to INTELLIPLANS and/or INTELLIPLANS employees. Examples of such activity include, but are not limited to:
- Verbal abuse, such as cursing, yelling, threatening, etc.
- Ongoing disregard for warnings or notices
- Consistent mistakes, errors, and/or changes causing unnecessary workload

- Consistent late payments or responses

INTELLIPLANS DOES NOT WARRANT OR REPRESENT THAT THE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, ERROR-FREE, OR COMPLETELY SECURE. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW INTELLIPLANS DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NONINFRINGEMENT. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ALL SERVICES ARE PROVIDED ON AN "AS IS" BASIS.
NEITHER PARTY SHALL BE LIABLE TO THE OTHER FOR ANY LOST PROFITS, OR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE LOSS OR DAMAGE OF ANY KIND, OR FOR DAMAGES THAT COULD HAVE BEEN AVOIDED BY THE USE OF REASONABLE DILIGENCE, ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH THE AGREEMENT, EVEN IF THE PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OR SHOULD BE AWARE OF THE POSSIBILIY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING ELSE IN THE AGREEMENT TO THE CONTRARY, THE MAXIMUM AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF INTELLIPLANS AND ANY OF ITS EMPLOYEES, AGENTS OR AFFILIATES, UNDER ANY THEORY OF LAW (INCLUDING BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY, AND INFRINGEMENT) SHALL BE A PAYMENT OF MONEY NOT TO EXCEED THE AMOUNT PAYABLE BY CUSTOMER FOR THREE MONTHS OF SERVICE.

Customer shall pay INTELLIPLANS reasonable reinstatement fee if service is reinstituted following a suspension of service under this subsection.
(b) Termination. The Agreement may be terminated by Customer prior to the expiration of the Initial Term or any Renewal Term without further notice and without liability if INTELLIPLANS fails in a material way to provide the service in accordance with the terms of the Agreement and does not cure the failure within ten (10) days of Customer's written notice describing the failure in reasonable detail. The Agreement may be terminated by INTELLIPLANS prior to the expiration of the Initial Term or any Renewal Term without further notice and without liability as follows: (i) upon ten (10) days notice if Customer is overdue on the payment of any amount due under the Agreement; (ii) Customer materially violates any other provision of the Agreement, including the AUP, and fails to cure the violation within thirty (30) days of a written notice from INTELLIPLANS describing the violation in reasonable detail; (iii) upon one (1) days notice if Customer's Service is used in violation of a material term of the AUP more than once, or (iv) upon one (1) days notice if Customer violates Section 5 (Customer Information) of this Agreement.

We are proud of our history. Our history reminds us where we came from so we know where we're going. "Not everything that is faced can be changed. But nothing can be changed until it is faced." - James Arthur Baldwin
Below is a short history of how we started this company and where are we now:
The beginning of the road
Offering the best products and services with the best customer service experience at the best possible prices while maintaining honesty, integrity and ethical values will be the founding principles of this company. INTELLIPLANS became one of the fastest growing nationwide Internet Service Providers (ISP). With our proprietary "rollover" dial-up software and our partnership with Level 3 and IKANO's Network, INTELLIPLANS provided one of the largest networks in the US and Canada with over 14,000 access numbers. We also offered graphic design, branding, domains, hosting and website development services. By the end of 2000, over a quarter of a billion subscribers were dialing in to the Internet--more than four times the number of users of other popular access methods, namely broadband DSL, cable, and ISDN modems. Our alliances and partnerships continued to grow with data centers and internet backbone providers.
Anti-Virus - Low Cost Domains - Hosting - Websites
With Internet connectivity a price sensitive commodity, ISPs desperately needed to discover new avenues for growth and new ways to delight customers into remaining in the fold. The answer: value-added services. On top of connectivity, low prices and 24/7 customer services, INTELLIPLANS needed to push ahead. To be a successful ISP, you either need to be very big or you need to offer new services and charge for them. Being relatively new in the ISP business, we knew we would not win the price war. Already many ISPs were failing due to the price wars, bait and switch tactics by some of the ISP giants leaving one or two low-priced service providers surviving in every market. INTELLIPLANS quickly worked on offering customers another level of value added products and services: AntiVirus, AntiSpyware, AntiMalware, AntiRootkit and Firewall built into one anti-virus software assuring complete protection for PCs at different levels, lowering the costs needed for technical support. Since customer service is our number one priority, over 99% of our customers were able to use our services without any interruptions dues to viruses or malware issues. We also lowered our pricing for domains, hosting and websites by 70%.
Intense Focus on: Branding, Domains, Hosting, Websites
As times were becoming more tough in the ISP areas, INTELLIPLANS began focusing more on providing business solutions to small and medium sized businesses. The primary goal was to increase the sales in domain names, which was very successful. After the success of providing low cost domain names, we offered a bundled solution by providing free economy web hosting. For the more demanding needs and requirements of corporate clients, we offered full branding, custom websites and hosting with USA 24/7 phone support.
Online and Offline Focus
Complementing an overall approach to an online and offline small business experience, we started offering Advertising and Marketing services. Many of our clients as well as new prospects encourage us to provide an advertising and marketing solution catering to their business needs. Knowing this would take a lot more resources as well as expertise, we were confident that the newly established marketing and advertising department would work flawlessly with our graphic design department. The results were stunning! Not only were the two departments able to produce great results at an amazing turn around time, but with the keen knowledge of each client's branding, the professional results provided to the clients quickly became viral as "word of mouth marketing" took effect.
Strength in numbers
As our business began to expand beyond local, national and international bounderies, it was natural we formed strategic alliances, partnerships, and product offers that complement our values and ethics. Some of the companies we now have partnership and/or alliences included: Microsoft, Google, GoDaddy, Constant Contact, Symantec, Ubuntu, Red Hat, Authorize.Net, USPS. By partnering with these companies, we are able to offer lower costs and more customized value added services to our clients.
Introduces SEO Services
INTELLIPLANS began offering SEO Top 10 Services, Pay Per Click (PPC) advertising along with CMS solutions such as one-click installations of Joomla and Drupal and Blogging solutions such as WordPress.
Introduces Phone Apps
INTELLIPLANS is making mobile apps affordable and simple for small businesses. We're a do-it-yourself iPhone, iPad, Android & HTML5 app platform that allows any small business to simultaneously create, edit, and manage mobile apps and mobile websites online without any programming knowledge needed. Strategic partnerships with several leading marketing and software companies complement our work, which boosts productivity, lower costs and increases efficiency.
Printing and Direct Mail Services
INTELLIPLANS purchased and acquired an enormous wide-format printing facility, providing customers with the fastest printing turn-around in the nation. Our facility is equipped to handle many print jobs at the same time. Our processing system is fully automated to help process orders faster and more accurately, in turn giving you quicker turnarounds and fast delivery. Standing behind our superior quality, fast turnarounds, customer service and price, we will continue to introduce new products and new resources helping our clients become profitable.
Finding better ways to help small businesses grow
INTELLIPLANS merged with a small SEO company and acquired another web development company. We also formed a strategic alliance with cloudflare, which helps distribute your content around the world so it’s closer to your visitors (speeding up your site). It also helps protect your website from a range of online threats from spammers to SQL injection to DDOS.
