All credit cards are billed automatically on a monthly basis. It is the client’s responsibility to ensure that they have sufficient credit to cover this transaction. In the event that there is insufficient credit, we will send an e-mail notification, at which point we will need to be provided with another credit card account number within days. If we do not receive a response within 1 day of the due date, the account, and all accounts under that account plan, will be suspended for non-payment.

4) Account backup services
As a courtesy, we provide R1Soft Backup retrieval for our customers using shared & reseller hosting. In addition, we retain weekly & monthly backups for admin use only & disaster recovery. We highly recommend all customers keep their own, local copies of all data.
Virtual Private Servers:
Virtual Private Servers (VPS) DO NOT include backups with self managed servers. We recommend all customers keep their own, local copies of all data. Alternatively, to increase business continuity, Storage Virtual Private Servers (SVPS) are available for an additional fee. SVPS solutions are provided “as-is” with no guarantees for your storage.
Backups are provided in the outlined services above as a courtesy. While we do our best to perform routine tests, we do not guarantee that our backups will always be usable. There are many factors that could render backups unusable. We cannot be held liable for any backup corruption, failed backups due to corruption or size limitations.
5) Migration services
Included with each customer migration is a courtesy 25 domains. For additional domains, a fee of $6.00 per cPanel to cPanel domain will be required. This is a non-refundable fee once any data is moved.
Non-cPanel transfers will incur a one-time fee of $19.99 per site.
Addon domain splitting: $19.99 per addon domain. This process is used when an addon domain is converted into a stand alone cPanel account.
On average, the turn around time for a migration is within 24-48 hours. This time can vary dependent on the amount of data required to move & the current number of migrations in our queue. Once assigned to a technician, said technician will estimate the time required.
While we can transfer most websites & hosting accounts in full without issue, certain providers do not allow access to all files such as emails. We will make all attempts to transfer all data however, in certain cases, we may not be able to transfer all data.
The included migration is an initial migration with the purchase of a hosting plan. Requested migrations after the initial migration will be subject to the normal fee shedule.
6) Additional product installations
Vision4Reality offers product installations to help ease of use for our customers. Vision4Reality cannot be held liable for any security breaches after the initial configuration due to non-maintained installations, 0-day vulnerability releases, unsecured/poorly written plugins, or adding additional services/features to the installation itself. These services are provided “as is” and Vision4Reality is not responsible for any data loss in the event of a security breach.
7) Additional product support
Vision4Reality makes all attempts to support the installation services offered for website solutions after the initial setup. Some areas may exceed the expertise of Vision4Reality as a web hosting company. No guarantees will be made the Vision4Reality can repair or customize your installation.
Included billing software:
We will make a best effort to assist in troubleshooting any licensed software we include. Ultimately, all vendors provide support directly in agreement with our partnership. Any licensed software MUST only be used on Vision4Reality Systems networks. You may not use any licensed software included with our hosting plans on any other network per our partnership vendor agreement.
Please note: If your plan includes a licensed software, your software must be installed & active to avoid the license key being disabled. Unused license keys will be expired & must be requested to re-issue in the event the software is not used.
8) Promotions, discounts & coupons
Periodically Vision4Reality will offer special promotions. By accepting to use a promotional item/code, you agree that the promotion is only good for the term specified. Once the promotion term is complete, normal billing rates will apply. You MUST request to cancel your services BEFORE the next billing cycle to avoid being charged normal billing rates. Unless otherwise noted, new customers are only eligible for utilizing a coupon. If a coupon is intended for current customer use, we will explicitly note the eligibility of the coupon.
Discounts apply for new customers/new signups only. You may not cancel an existing account to create a new account using a discount – this is considered coupon/discount abuse. Any account found in violation will be reviewed by our billing department & the correct invoicing applied.
Alternatively, signing up for a new account with different account information such as email address, mailing address to utilize a discount will also be reviewed by our billing department. Promotional discounts are offered for new customers and are not valid for existing customers. Providing alternate account information to bypass our account screening processes will also result in the correct invoicing being applied to the account.
9) Account re-activation, late fees, cancellation notices & service terminations
There are no reactivation fees if your account is suspended & currently still resides in a production hosting environment. If your account has been terminated due to non payment or has been requested to be cancelled, we do not retain backups of any data past the termination date OR the cancellation confirmation. We do not store backups for terminated accounts and/or accounts that have been cancelled.
Virtual Private Servers:
No reactivation fee’s will be required at this time. If your server is terminated & is a managed VPS we do not store backups once a VPS has been terminated. You will be required to go through the initial signup & migration process once the VPS has been terminated to reinstate service.
ALL accounts require a 14 day cancellation notice before the following renewal date. Cancellations are required to be submitted from the account management portal from under your services. This is typically found by going to Services/Hosting > Choose your service to cancel > Request Cancellation. We do not accept cancellations via email. This is to protect our customers from an unauthorized party emailing on their behalf and terminating the service.
10) Liability addendum
Vision4Reality shall not be responsible for any claimed damages, including incidental and consequential damages, which may arise from Vision4Reality ‘ servers going off-line or being unavailable for any reason whatsoever. Furthermore, Vision4Reality shall not be responsible for any claimed damages, including incidental or consequential damages, resulting from the corruption, disruption or deletion of any web site or data from one of Vision4Reality servers, software & services including, but not limited to bugs, system errors, omissions logic or flow discrepencies.

14) Privacy statement
Vision4Reality has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses the information gathering and dissemination practices for this Web site. We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our Web site. We use this information for no other reason.
Our site uses an order form for customers to request services. (128 bit encryption). We collect sensitive information which is used only for our purpose, not third party receives any type of information from us. Contact information from the order forms is used to get in touch with the customer when necessary. Billing information that is collected is used to bill the user for services. Unique identifiers are collected from Web site visitors to verify the user’s identity. Demographic and profile data is also collected at our site. We use this data to tailor our visitor’s experience at our site showing them content that we think they might be interested in, and displaying the content according to their preferences.
This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. We use strong SSL encryption to ensure your privacy.
Information collected on this site is strictly for our use, NO OTHER OUTSIDE PERSONS MAY VIEW YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION SUCH BILLING INFORMATION, ETC.
If you have any questions about this privacy statement, the practices of this site, or your dealings with this Web site, you can contact: [email protected] As a provider of web site hosting and other Internet-related services, Vision4Reality offers its customer (also known as “Subscribers”) and their customers and users the means to acquire and disseminate a wealth of public, private, commercial and non-commercial information. Vision4Reality respects that the Internet provides a forum for free and open discussion and dissemination of information. However, when there are competing interests at issue, Vision4Reality reserves the right to take certain preventive or corrective actions. In order to protect these competing interests, Vision4Reality has developed an Acceptable Use Policy (“AUP”), which supplements and explains certain terms of each customer’s respective service agreement, and is intended as a guide to the customer’s rights and obligations when using Vision4Reality ‘ services. This AUP will be revised from time to time. One important aspect of the Internet is that no one party owns or controls it. This fact accounts for much of the Internet’s openness and value, but it also places a high premium on the judgment and responsibility of those who use it, both in the information they acquire and in the information they disseminate to others. When subscribers obtain information through the Internet, they must keep in mind that Vision4Reality cannot monitor, verify, warrant or vouch for the accuracy and quality of the information they acquire. For this reason, the subscriber must exercise his or her best judgment in relying on information obtained from the Internet, and also should be aware that some material posted to the Internet may be sexually explicit or otherwise offensive. Because Vision4Reality cannot monitor or censor the Internet, and will not attempt to do so, Vision4Reality cannot accept any responsibility for injury to its subscribers resulting from inaccurate, unsuitable, offensive or illegal Internet communications.
Vision4Reality Systems may utilize third party systems to gathering site usage metrics to record on-site activity, navigation, heatmaps & visits to our websites for the purpose of increasing ease of use. We do not record sensitive information such as text input fields or credit card details. We utilize services such as Google Analytics, Sessioncam & Clicktale to gather various metrics for insight on how our site is used.
When subscribers disseminate information from the Internet, they must keep in mind that Vision4Reality does not review, edit, censor or take responsibility for any information its subscribers may create. When users place information on the Internet, they have the same liability as other authors for copyright infringement, defamation and other harmful speech. Also, because the information created is carried over Vision4Reality ‘ network and may reach a large number of people, including both subscribers and non-subscribers of Vision4Reality , subscribers’ postings to the Internet may affect other subscribers and may affect Vision4Reality ‘ goodwill, business, reputation or operations. For these reasons, subscribers violate Vision4Reality policy and the Service Agreement when they, their customers, affiliates or subsidiaries engage in prohibited activities.
15) SPAM unsolicited email, bulk mailing & blacklistings
Sending unsolicited bulk and/or commercial information over the Internet. It is not only harmful because of its negative impact on consumer attitudes toward Vision4Reality , but also because it can overload Vision4Reality ‘ network and disrupt service to Vision4Reality ‘ subscribers. Also, maintaining an open SMTP relay is prohibited. When a complaint is received, Vision4Reality will investigate and shutdown the account that is SPAMing. A $250 charge for violating this policy will be charged to the person initiating the SPAM. Furthermore Vision4Reality reserves the right to prosecute for this violation. A $1.00 charge will be assessed PER EMAIL sent should Vision4Reality choose to pursue and prosecute.
By agreeing to this terms of service, Vision4Reality is authorized to access your accounts hosted on our networks; shared, reseller, virtual servers & dedicated servers to investigate SPAM complaints.
Vision4Reality has a zero-tolerance policy for SPAM being sent from our networks. Knowingly allowing SPAM to be sent from your server/account on our network is grouds for immediate temrination without refund for any service.
Abuse related issues resulting in blacklisting of our IP space will be subject to a $49.99 non-refundeable blacklist removal and cleanup fee. This fee applies to websites/accounts with repeated abuse related issues, failure to comply with security policies and/or continuous related SPAM issues. Note: this applies to repeat and/or failure to resolve security issues resulting in our IP space becoming blacklisted.
16) Audio & video streaming / File storage
We do not permit the use of our hosting for storing/streaming large audio/video files. Small files & normal web traffic streaming is allowed however, large sites with the sole intent of streaming videos are prohibited. This does not apply to “embedding” audio/video from other sites such as Vimeo/YouTube.
Vision4Reality is not for file hosting and distribution – as such, customers may not host any files larger than 1GB in size that are observed to be available for the sole purpose of download or storage only. Files stored on your hosting account MUST be active files relating to an active website. Such files include but are not limited to .ISO, audio/video files, .EXE files. If you are unsure whether your file is against this policy, please contact our support desk.
Excluded from size limits are error log files & backups generated from within the control panels located on our servers. While these items are excluded, we do not permit the use of our hosting services for storing backups. When a backup generated, it should be downloaded, then removed. Our automated systems will remove backups that have not been removed in order to ensure our backups run properly. We also do not permit the use of our servers for storing large zip or compressed files as this can also hinder the ability for us to perform backups efficiently.
For additional information on restricted storage & file usage, please view our KB article here: Backup Storage & File Restriction Information
17) Abuse, misconduct & security
Vision4Reality practices a zero-tolerance policy for abuse towards our staff. All staff members, no matter the severity of the situation are required to act in a professional manner. Abuse towards a staff member is a direct violation of this agreement & grounds for termination pending the review of a manager. Examples of abuse are, but not limited to, negative, defamatory, harassing, abusive or threatening language.
Using Vision4Reality ‘ network as a means to transmit or post negative, defamatory, harassing, abusive or threatening language is strictly prohibited.
Forging or misrepresenting message headers, whether in whole or in part, to mask the originator of the message is strictly prohibited.
Accessing, illegally or without authorization, computers, accounts or networks belonging to another party, or attempting to penetrate security measures of another individual’s system (often known as “hacking”). Also, any activity that may be used as a precursor to an attempted system penetration (i.e., port scan, stealth scan or other information-gathering activity).
Distributing information regarding the creation of and sending Internet viruses, worms, Trojan horses, pinging, flooding, mail bombing or denial of service attacks. Also, activities that disrupt the use of or interfere with the ability of others to effectively use the network or any connected network, system, service or equipment.
Advertising, transmitting or otherwise making available any software, program, product or service that is designed to violate this AUP, which includes the facilitation of the means to spam, initiation of pinging, flooding, mail bombing, denial of service attacks and piracy of software.
Exporting encryption software over the Internet or otherwise, to points outside the United States.
Vision4Reality reserves the right not to accept postings from newsgroups where we have actual knowledge that the content of the newsgroup violates the AUP.
Engaging in activities that are determined to be illegal, including, but not limited to, advertising, transmitting or otherwise making available ponzi schemes, pyramid schemes, fraudulently charging credit cards and pirating software, creating libelous or defamatory content. Doing so is in direct violation with this agreement upon purchasing services & grounds for immediate termination without refund.
Engaging in activities, whether lawful or unlawful, that Vision4Reality determines to be harmful to its subscribers, operations, reputation, goodwill or customer relations included, but not limited to: shell scripts, phishing content, hosted malware/virus software, actively engaging in malicious intent. Doing so is in direct violation with this agreement upon purchasing services & grounds for immediate termination without refund.
As we have pointed out, the responsibility for avoiding harmful activities just described rests primarily with the subscriber. Vision4Reality will not, as an ordinary practice, monitor the communications of its subscribers to ensure that the comply with Vision4Reality ‘ policy or applicable law. However, when Vision4Reality becomes aware of harmful activities, it may take any action to stop the harmful activity, including, but not limited to, removal of information, shutting down a web site, implementing screening software designed to block offending transmissions, denying access to the Internet, or any other action deemed appropriate by Vision4Reality .
Vision4Reality performs automated scans for malicious files & known exploits on all servers. We reserve the right to immediately quarantine and/or remove any malicious files found on our network that can harm the reputation of any servers, IP address space or any transmissions to/from our network for customer services. In the event malicious content is found on an account, you, the customer, will be notified by our abuse department. This includes, but is not limited to exploited plugins, themes and any web applications that are actively engaging in malicious activity.
Vision4Reality WordPress installation & configuration services are provided to aid in the ease of use & protection of your WordPress website. We cannot be held liable for security breaches due to additional plugins, changing to less complex passwords or any exploits that are not directly related to our configuration. We outline our scope of work with clients before purchasing. The measures that are performed are strictly “preventative” measures to aid in securing a WordPress site. The addition of plugins & features to your site after the initial work is performed greatly increases the chance of exploitation. All services are performed “as-is” at the time of configuration and Vision4Reality cannot be held liable after the services have been completed.
Use of Vision4Reality online form builder (JotForm) is strictly “at-your-own-risk”. While we strive to provide a secure environment, we do not recommend storing personal & confidential information such as credit card numbers, social security numbers and such in the forms. In the event of a security breach, we cannot be held liable. Vision4Reality provides the online form builder (JotForm) as an added feature.
19) Monitoring & subscriber services
Vision4Reality is also aware that many of its subscribers are themselves providers of Internet services, and that information reaching Vision4Reality ‘ facilities from those subscribers may have originated from a customer of the subscriber or from another third party. Vision4Reality does not require its subscribers who offer Internet services to monitor or censor transmissions or web sites created by customers of its subscribers. Vision4Reality reserves the right to directly take action against a customer of its subscribers. Also, Vision4Reality may take action against the Vision4Reality ‘ subscriber because of activities of a customer of the subscriber, even though the action may affect other customers of the subscriber. Similarly, Vision4Reality anticipates that subscribers who offer Internet services will cooperate with Vision4Reality in any corrective or preventive action that Vision4Reality deems necessary. Failure to cooperate with such corrective or preventive measures is a violation of Vision4Reality policy.
Vision4Reality will not intentionally monitor private electronic mail messages sent or receive by its subscribers, unless required to do so by law, governmental authority or when public safety is at stake. Vision4Reality may, however, monitor its service electronically to determine that its facilities are operating satisfactorily. Also, Vision4Reality may disclose information, including, but not limited to, information concerning a subscriber, a transmission made using our network, or a web site, in order to comply with a court order, subpoena, summons, discovery request, warrant, statute, regulation or governmental request. Vision4Reality assumes not obligation to inform the subscriber that subscriber information has been provided and, in some cases, may be prohibited by law from giving such notice. Finally, Vision4Reality may disclose subscriber information or information transmitted over its network where necessary to protect Vision4Reality and others from harm, or where such disclosure is necessary to the proper operation of the system. However, Vision4Reality will never sell information to other services or outside companies.
Vision4Reality expects that its subscribers who provide Internet services to others will comply fully with all applicable laws concerning the privacy of online communications. A subscriber’s failure to comply with those laws will violate Vision4Reality policy. Finally, Vision4Reality wishes to emphasize that, in signing the Service Agreement, subscribers indemnify Vision4Reality for any violation of the Service Agreement, law or Vision4Reality policy resulting in loss to Vision4Reality or the bringing of any claim against Vision4Reality by any third party. This means that, if Vision4Reality is sued because of a subscriber’s or customer of a subscriber’s activity, the subscriber will be responsible for payment of any damages awarded against Vision4Reality , plus costs and attorney’s fees. We hope this AUP is helpful in clarifying the obligations of Internet users, including Vision4Reality and its subscribers, as responsible members of the Internet. Any complaints about a subscriber’s violation of this AUP should be sent to [email protected] .
20) Unmetered fair use bandwidth, disk space, databases, email, resellers & domains policy & storage restrictions
Vision4Reality does not set “hard” quota disk storage & bandwidth limits on shared web hosting accounts. While bandwidth is “unmetered” it does not mean “unlimited”. The fair use policy is set to protect from resource abuse. If your bandwidth usage is normal website, email & content serving traffic, we will not limit your usage. We understand there may be times when a website has higher than normal traffic which causes a bandwidth spike; this is not considered abuse.
If your website is used for uploading/downloading large files which consume large amounts of bandwidth continuously, we reserve the right to limit your bandwidth quota to a fair amount; this is considered abuse as your hosting account is not to be used as a “file hosting service”. This is not to be confused with hosting files, you may certainly utilize your storage resources included with your plan however.
Audio/Video streaming large amounts can also be considered resource intensive and we recommend against it.
In short, if your account does not affect other customer accounts, and you do not intentionally abuse this policy, you will have no problems and need not worry about bandwidth quotas.
While we do not force strict limits on the number of addon domains on every shared hosting account, we do reserve the right to deem a high number of addon domains to be too many. Generally, if the addon domains are affecting the performance of the account, we may recommend using a reseller account.
Resold cPanel accounts (resellers):
Select Reseller plans do not have a set limit on the number of cPanel accounts you can create. We do reserve the right to deem “too many” for accounts with a large number of resold accounts. In this case, we’d recommend either an additional reseller account on a different server (a discount would apply) or upgrading to a virtual server (VPS) or a dedicated server.
These limitations are based solely on a performance & stability basis to ensure our servers run at optimal performance & availability.
Accounts that contain large numbers of email accounts are subject to the fair use policy. Accounts found having large number of connections that impact availability to email services to other customers may require an upgrade onto their own server.
Storage Use Restrictions:
We do not permit the use of hosting accounts as long term file storage unless the files are directly related to your website. This includes ISO files, OS IMG files & cPanel generated backup files. cPanel generated backup files will be automatically removed from our servers after 24 hours due to the large amount of resources required to back up “backups”. We kindly request that after a cPanel backup is generated, that you immediately download the backup and then remove it from your hosting account. Failing to do so may prevent our R1Soft daily backups from fully completing.
You may not store any of the following items on a web hosting account – this applies to both limited and unlimited plans:
- archives, backups, file storage & file sharing
- copyrighted material
- ISO, IMG, large ZIP/TAR files
- Media files not directly used by your website
Vision4Reality reserves the right to notify & remove content found in violation of this agreement. Vision4Reality has discretion on what files/content may or may not be within this policy and will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis for the account found in violation of this agreement.
Per cPanel Account Resources
While we do not impose strict bandwidth limitations on shared hosting accounts anylonger, the same resource limitations apply to both unlimited and limited accounts. These limits are in reference to inodes, processes, memory & CPU. This information can be found in our KB: cloudlinux-resource-limits-shared-hosting
- CPU: 100% of 1 vCore
- Starting Memory: 1-4GB based on plan specifications
- Processes: 100
- I/O: 5MBPS
- inodes: 300,000
- Starting mySQL Connections: 12 – max to 20
21) Law enforcement cooperation
Vision4Reality will cooperate fully with local & federal law enforcement & will provide customer information, subscriber documents, files, emails & any other documents with the proper requirements upon requests & approval consultation of our attorney.
Using Vision4Reality ‘ network to advertise, transmit, store, post, display, or otherwise make available child pornography or obscene speech or material is prohibited. Vision4Reality is required by law to notify law enforcement agencies when it becomes aware of the presence of child pornography on or being transmitted through its network.
All legal matters should be directed to: [email protected]
22) Reservation of rights
Vision4Reality reserves the right to:
- Modify/Revise this policy at any time without notice
- Refuse, cancel or suspend service, at our sole discretion (within moral reason)
- Access customer accounts located on Vision4Reality for investigations & compliance audits
23) Server, network, infrastructure upgrades & modifications
Periodically, Vision4Reality will perform server, network & infrastructure upgrades to ensure our services are compatible & to the latest industry standards. This includes hardware, software, networking practices & security policies. Upgrade procedures span from the server application level (such as PHP, Apache, LiteSpeed, CloudLinux etc) to physical hardware including memory, hard drives, routing & switching components, storage & the like. Please note, as the owner & maintainer of the websites/applications hosted on your account with Vision4Reality , you are responsible for ensuring that your website is kept up to date & is absent of compatibility issues with non-EOL software releases. In the event Vision4Reality performs an upgrade for an EOL (End Of Life) suite, we cannot be held liable for incompatibilites within your web application.
We routinely test our servers & infrastructure for review on current configurations. Durign these testing periods, we may deem certain software to be incompatible going forward and at times may replace certain sofftware. This means if we determine a software suite is no longer able to provide sufficient performance or the like, it may be replaced. In the event a software suite is replaced, we will make all attempts to ensure no “features” are removed that affect customer usability of the hosting platform.
24) Service level agreement (SLA)
Shared & Reseller Hosting:
Vision4Reality guarantees that your website and services that directly affect its display to the Internet (such as HTTP or MySQL) will be accessible 99.9% of the time in any given calendar month. If we fail to meet our Uptime Guarantee, you will be issued a credit equivalent to one (1) day of service per sixty (60) minutes downtime.
