This Mega Studios Terms Of Service agreement (hereafter referred to as the "TOS") lays down the terms and conditions by which Mega Studios Services (hereafter referred to as the "Services") will be provided to you upon registration. The TOS also describes prohibited uses of the Services. This TOS is not exhaustive and Mega Studios reserves the right to modify it from time to time. No verbal or written agreement/statement by any Mega Studios employee or at Mega Studios website will take precedence over the TOS.
On registering for and using the Services, you the Customer agree to all the terms and conditions of the TOS, as modified from time to time, in its entirety. If Customer resells the Services he or she is paying for, the Customer will be responsible for his or her Clients. Mega Studios only recognizes the Customer who is paying for the Services and not his or her clients. Violation of the TOS or any such action that Mega Studios deems inappropriate may result in the termination or suspension of the Services for the Customer.
The Services purchased by the Customer will be in the form of a specific Windows, Linux, Business, Ecommerce, VPS or Reseller Service Plan. Each Service Plan outlines the features, resources and storage that Mega Studios will provide to the Customer for the stated Service Fee. Each Service Plan along with their features, resources, storage and Service Fee are defined at www. Mega Studios.com. Mega Studios has the sole right to determine how the features, storage and resources under each Service Plan are interpreted and how they will be provided to the Customer. The Customer must clarify any questions about the Service Plan he or she wishes to purchase with Mega Studios before registration. The Service Plan will be provided to the Customer in the form of a Service Account, which would allow the Customer to manage and use the features, resources and storage stated in the chosen Service Plan.
All Service Accounts are setup on a pre-pay basis. Upon the start of each Billing Period, the Customer will be charged the Service fee for the duration of the Billing Period. There may be additional charges according to our Overage Policy if any additional resources, features or storage is purchased or used by the Customer under the chosen Service Plan (which was not otherwise included for free). The Billing Period will renew itself automatically on termination unless the Customers choose to cancel his or her Service Account (according to the Cancellation/Refund Policy)
All charges will be debited against the Customer's balance maintained by Mega Studios. If the customer's chosen payment method is Credit Card, Mega Studios would attempt to charge the credit card number provided by customer (upon or after registration) automatically. For all other purchases (i.e. purchases made from Online transactions as well as by Cheque), customer must manually pay following payment procedures defined by Mega Studios. Failure of customer to pay manually or for Mega Studios to charge customer's credit card (due to any reason, in particular in case of an invalid credit card number or credentials) would lead to Service Account suspension. The Customer's Service Account would only be resumed when the customer clears his or her balance and pays for the Service Fee for the duration of the next Billing Period as well. If the Customer doesn't pay his or her balance within 7 days after Service Account suspension, Mega Studios reserves the right to terminate the Customer's Service Account
Mega Studios also reserves the right to withdraw any feature from a Service Plan, at any time it wishes to do so.
If Customer exceeds the feature, storage or resources limits defined by his or her chosen Service Plan, he or she will be charged for the extra usage according to the Overage rates outlined in that Service Plan. Customer may also purchase additional features, storage and resources by the same overage rates. If Customer uses/purchases more than 200% of the resources allocated in the chosen Hosting Plan, Mega Studios reserves the right to terminate the Customer's Service Account. The overage fees charged will be for the remaining portion of the Customer's current Billing Period
All payments are due in full on or before the Anniversary Billing Date. Payments for additional resources and recurring charges are due as soon as they appear in "billing statements". Failure to remit payment on due date is a violation of the TOS. Failure to remit payment on time, including the Anniversary Billing Date, shall result in a termination of public access to Customer services as well as suspension of Server services. A late fee of $30 will be incurred for failure to remit payment for services on or before due date/Anniversary Billing Date. Failure to remit payment for services within five (5) consecutive days, including the Anniversary Billing Date, shall result in termination of all services, shall be reclaimed. A $60 reconnect fee will be incurred for failure to remit payment for services after access has been disconnected.

Bandwidth and Disk Usage
It's true, no one can provide truly unlimited web hosting, but when we say unlimited domains, disk space and bandwidth, of course there are terms & conditions that you must adhere to. These accounts may not to be used to offer a lifetime/free hosting package, host a collection of MP3s, videos, anime, Warez, auto responder service, bulk email service or to backup your computer or another source.
They may not be used for general storage of any type. All content stored on an account must be directly used on the Internet by the website associated with that account. These accounts may not be used as a download distribution point for your software or media. They are to be used for standard web practices only.
This means that all content stored on an account must be used for "acceptable" website use. "Unacceptable" usage is anything that a shared server would not be able to provide under standard circumstances. If all diskspace used is for acceptable websites, and all bandwidth used is for acceptable activity, then when we run out of disk space and/or bandwidth, we simply add more resources. However, if any domain hosted under your account requires resources that are not able to be provided by a shared server, then in such circumstances we may require you to rent a dedicated server for that domain.
