  1. GENERAL APPROACH

For general website design & development projects we employ the following steps:

  • After quote acceptance/signoff, initiation payment is processed to start the project. As required by the project, the geeks will get in touch with you over your preferred mode of communication to discuss the requirements in detail.
  • Once we have the Site requirements we will have a mock-up for your review within 10 to 15 working days.
  • You can review the design and suggest improvements accordingly. Depending upon your project, generally up to 3 to 5 design modifications can be done within the given estimates.
  • Once the design is finalized and approved, we’ll proceed with the development.
  • Once the site is ready from our end, we generally hand it over to you for further review, test and/or to upload/change contents as necessary.
  • At this stage, we can discuss and set a “Go-Live date” for us to make the website/project live.
  • Your website can be made live within 3 to 5 working days after a Go-Live approval, assuming that the accounts are clear. Kindly note that we require full payment prior to transferring the website to the server.
  • We encourage you to provide all the necessary details, at the start of the project to ensure that our team’s time is efficiently utilized on your project and you do not incur any unnecessary additional costs.
  • You will be kept updated via emails and/or telephone calls as the project demands. However, please do not hesitate to contact us at any time you require a project status. Also, please always keep us updated with your relevant email addresses/contact details.
  • Once the website/application has been made live on the client’s domain, it is their responsibility to take regular full back-ups and to update all components and third-party software unless the Plan or Package offers it.

We consider ourselves to be very flexible and adaptable and approach all requests with a ‘can-do’ attitude. If you require something changed, please feel free to discuss it with us. Please contact us if you require further details or have any questions. We look forward to working together with you on your project!

In such an event, The Geeks Room reserves the right to charge the client without honoring any discounts that were previously honored in good faith. Under no circumstances will The Geeks Room be liable for any damages arising from misrepresentation or misinformation.

The Geeks Room reserves the right to refuse service to any client if these are not aligned with our business operating principles and policies.

The Geeks Room provides its services as is, without any guarantees on security or other issues leading to loss of data, sale or reputation. We ensure to the best of our ability that our systems and servers are protected from hackers, viruses, intruders and other online and offline problems, however, we will not be held liable for any disruption of services if such a situation arises.

Relationship of The Geeks Room with its suppliers, partners, and sub-contractors is of an independent nature. None of the parties have any power, right or authority to interfere or bind the other or assume or create any obligation or responsibility, whether expressed or implied, on behalf of the other or in the other’s name.

Client will indemnify and hold The Geeks Room, its licensors, content providers, service providers, employees, agents, officers, directors, contractors, and sub-contractors (the “Indemnified Parties”) harmless from your breach of any of these Terms And Conditions or any other terms, conditions, policies or procedures herein, including, without limitation, any use of content other than as expressly authorized in these Terms and Conditions.

  1. HOSTING TERMS

Hosting is an annual charge which must be paid in advance for the whole year.

It is the client’s responsibility to renew the hosting in time before the expiry date. Failure to renew in time can lead to loss of files, data, emails, backups, etc. All unpaid hostings are disabled or deleted from the server.

All renewals must be paid by seven working days prior to the expiry date. The Geeks Room will not be responsible for issues relating to the delayed payment.

In case of a malware attack, The Geeks Room reserves the right to delete files on the hosting service without giving any prior notice.

The Geeks Room provides hosting services through The Geeks Room’s cPanel at Bluehost.com.

The Geeks Room provides hosting plans under Shared hosting. If a dedicated IP is required, the client may contact the team to set it up for a pre-discussed monthly fee.

How much disk space and bandwidth is included with my plan?

For packages supporting unmetered disk space or data transfer (bandwidth), we do not have defined limitations. These resources are “unmetered”, meaning you are not billed according to the amount of disk space or bandwidth used. While of course these resources are not infinite, we believe our customers should have all the resources necessary to build an online presence and 99.95% of customers will have more than enough disk space and bandwidth to meet their needs.

That said, we do require all customers to be fully compliant with our Terms of Service and utilize disk space and bandwidth in a manner consistent with the normal operation of a website. While rare, we occasionally constrain accounts utilizing more resources than should be the case in the normal operation of a personal or small business website.

How do you determine “normal” operation?

We regularly examine customer bandwidth and disk space utilization data in a series of statistical analyses and use the results to define “normal”. Although these tests vary from month to month, one thing remains constant: 99.95% of our customers fall into “normal” range. If your account’s bandwidth or disk space utilization causes any concern, you will receive an email asking you to reduce usage. We strive to provide at least 48 hours notice to allow customers to make adjustments before we take any corrective action.

It is very rare for a customer to exceed normal usage while managing a website. Typically, customers only experience issues if they use their accounts for storage (for example large multimedia files) or file sharing. Our hosting services are not intended to support these activities, and in accordance with our Terms of Service your disk space and bandwidth usage must be integrated into the normal operation of a website. We offer various plans that better address high bandwidth and large storage requirements. Please contact us for details.

  1. Cancellation/Termination:

Hosting Cancellation requests must be sent via email one month prior to the expiry of the same. Once the hosting has been renewed, it cannot be canceled and must be paid for the full year.

If the hosting is not paid and renewed before the expiry date, The Geeks Room reserve the right to disable the hosting and all associated services including emails and DNS records. Additional charges will be applicable to re-enable the hosting. The Geeks Room will not be responsible for any loss of data, files, emails, backups, restoration costs, etc.

If a hosting has been canceled/disabled then all files, emails, databases, and backups will be deleted from the server without any notification to the client.

Emails:
