Zero-Tolerance SPAM Policy

Any client found to be sending out SPAM will have their account terminated and may be terminated without prior notice. Furthermore, clients who engage in unsolicited mailing may be charged a consulting fee for any remedial actions Awe Video LLC takes. This is in the event that Awe Video LLC’s servers or IP space are placed in any third-party mail filtering software or blackhole lists as a result of the client’s activities.

As a proactive measure to protect the IP reputation of our network and prevent our IP space from being used to distribute unsolicited emails, Awe Video LLC reserves the right to apply an SMTP filter to accounts flagged by our Abuse Team.


Our Support personnel will make every effort to assist you with the move of your website or server to us. Transfers are provided as a courtesy service, and Awe Video LLC does not make any guarantees regarding the possibility, prospect, or time required to complete a transfer of accounts. Every hosting company is structured differently, and some hosting platforms retain data in an inconsistent or proprietary configuration, making migration attempts immensely difficult and possibly impossible to migrate partial or all account data. In certain situations, we may not be able to assist you in transferring data from a previous hosting provider. In no event shall Awe Video LLC be held liable for any lost or missing data or files resulting from a transfer to or from Awe Video LLC. You are solely responsible for backing up your data in all circumstances. You are also solely responsible for ensuring the integrity of the data once our engineer provides notice that the migration is complete to the best of their knowledge.

Backups and Data Loss

Your use of Awe Video LLC Services is at your sole risk. Awe Video LLC servers are set up with RAID to mirror all data to a second disk constantly. Awe Video LLC is not responsible for files and/or data stored on Awe Video LLC servers. You agree to take full responsibility for files and data transferred and to maintain all appropriate backups of files and data stored on Awe Video LLC servers. Awe Video LLC does not take backups of any kind of customer data; customers are responsible for managing and backing up their own data.

Awe Video LLC Backup Service

Your use of Awe Video LLC’s Backup Service includes the fee associated with Awe Video LLC setting up your initial backup service and all support requests you may put in related to your backup service. It is your responsibility to ensure the integrity of your backups. Awe Video LLC assumes no liability related to the validity and/or integrity of the data contained within your backups. You are responsible for notifying Awe Video LLC should you believe your backups have a problem. You are also responsible for monitoring and ensuring your backups continue to function after Awe Video LLC completes the initial setup of the backup service.


Payments made for eligible services provided by Awe Video LLC may be eligible for a prorated refund. In order to be eligible for a refund, a service must be canceled within our client portal. Once the service is canceled, a refund may be requested. The refund request must be made within seventy-two (72) hours of the payment transaction time. The transaction time means the time that the payment transaction or charge occurred. Generally speaking, this is the date of the original purchase or renewal for the service in question. Awe Video LLC will not grant refunds in advance. Refunds requested prior to cancellation or outside of the seventy-two (72) hour time window from the payment transaction time are considered invalid and not eligible for a refund.

The following products and services are not eligible for refunds:

  • Software Licenses
  • Domains
  • SSL Certificates
  • IP Addresses
  • Products or Services that are billed on an Hourly basis
  • Products or Services that are terminated for violations of our Terms of Service
  • Products or Services that are purchased using cryptocurrencies, tokens, or digital assets

Unlimited Hosting Policy

Awe Video LLC will allocate unlimited disk space and bandwidth for our Shared, Business, Reseller, and White Label Reseller services. That unlimited disk space and bandwidth may only be used to store and transfer files relevant to the website(s) being hosted on those services. If a client causes continuous server or service interruptions under their current plan, they will be asked to upgrade to a more powerful plan.

In the event that such interruptions are being caused, we would notify the Client, informing them they need to upgrade. The service would be suspended in extreme cases to prevent further server or service interruptions. The service would also be suspended if the Client does not contact us after warning emails regarding the need to upgrade have been sent.

Bandwidth Overage Fees

The Cloud and Dedicated servers that Awe Video LLC provides come with a set amount of monthly Bandwidth based on the offered service’s tier or resources. The amount of bandwidth each server has resets monthly on the service’s recurring billing day (day of the month service invoices). The Client is responsible for monitoring the resource usage of their server(s). Clients can track and monitor bandwidth usage at any time within the cloud portal.

If a client exceeds the bandwidth provided with their service, the Client will be notified regarding the overage inside the Cloud Portal. The Client will be billed a fee incrementally for bandwidth overages. This would be done at a rate of zero point zero one dollar ($0.01) per Gigabit (Gb) of additional bandwidth used during a given month. When the server exceeds its bandwidth limit, a rate limit of three Mbps (3 Megabits per second) will be applied to the Client’s server. The Client can upgrade their server to a tier with a greater bandwidth allocation to remove this limit and avoid bandwidth overage fees.

Abuse Towards Awe Video LLC

Awe Video LLC values its clients and treats them with respect. However, Awe Video LLC expects the same level of respect and dignity from their clients in return. If Awe Video LLC determines that a client is being disrespectful or demeaning to any of its staff members, the client may be asked to switch to a new hosting provider. The affected client will have seven (7) days to move to a new host. After this period, Awe Video LLC reserves the right to altogether remove or terminate the client’s account. The client will not be entitled to any refunds, but refunds may be issued for advanced payments at Awe Video LLC’s discretion.

Server Abuse/Customer Abuse

Any attempted attack against any Awe Video LLC server and/or Client being hosted by Awe Video LLC will automatically terminate the offending account with no refund, including but not limited to no refunds for advanced payments and permanent banning of the offending Client.

Price/Plan Changes

Awe Video LLC reserves the right to change prices at any time. We will provide you with at least thirty (30) days’ notice before you are billed at the updated price. It is your sole responsibility to periodically review billing information provided by Awe Video LLC through the customer portal.

Changes to the Agreement or the Services

Awe Video LLC may modify, add, or delete portions of this Agreement at any time. Awe Video LLC will post a notice on the Awe Video LLC website for a period of thirty (30) days before the effective date of any such change. Your use of any of the Services shall constitute an Agreement to such change.

Awe Video LLC may modify, change, or discontinue any aspect of the Services at any time.


To cancel a service, besides domain name registrations and items stored in cloud storage, you are required to submit a cancellation request. Any other attempts to cancel through other means or with third parties will not be considered valid. All valid cancellation requests are handled immediately, resulting in the termination of the service and the deletion of any content that may have been stored on the service at the time of cancellation. Please note that it is your responsibility to ensure you have taken any necessary backups prior to requesting cancellation.

To prevent a service from renewing, completing the cancellation process as detailed above is necessary before the service’s next billing cycle begins. Failure to do so will result in the service automatically renewing as per the details in this Agreement’s “Payment” section. Payments for such renewals are subject to our refund policy as detailed in this Agreement’s “Refunds” section.

Domain name registrations and items stored in cloud storage are services that cannot be canceled as they do not operate on a standard subscription basis. Domain name registration will stop renewing once auto-renewal of a given domain name is disabled on the domain’s management page. Items held in cloud storage need to be deleted by the account owner from within the Cloud Portal. The time such items are stored leading up to that deletion would be billed according to the details of the “Payment” section in this Agreement.


Awe Video LLC may terminate your access to the Services, in whole or in part, including deletion or confiscation of all files, content, and/or domain name registrations, without notice in the event that:

  1. You fail to pay any fees due.
  2.  Violation of the terms and conditions as mentioned in this Agreement.
  3. Your conduct may cause harm to Awe Video LLC or others, result in Awe Video LLC or others incurring liabilities, or disrupt Awe Video LLC’s business operations (as determined by Awe Video LLC in its sole discretion).
  4. f you behave in an abusive manner towards Awe Video LLC’s staff in any way.
  5. For any other lawful reason, including to comply with applicable law or as otherwise specified in this Agreement.

In such event, Awe Video LLC will not refund to you any fees paid in advance of such termination, and you shall be obligated to pay all fees and charges accrued prior to the effectiveness of such termination.

Upon termination of the services for any reason, user content, user websites, and other data will be deleted.

Account Credit

All account credits are tied to the account to which they were initially added. Account credits will not be refunded back to the Client.

Chargebacks and Disputes

In the event that we are notified that a chargeback or other payment dispute is filed, your account will automatically be placed on hold, resulting in a suspension for all active services on your account and the risk of termination should the dispute not be immediately resolved. Resolving a chargeback would include:

  • Providing proof of ownership for the payment method used.
  • Repaying any disputed transaction(s).
  • Paying a two hundred fifty dollar ($250) penalty fee per transaction that has been disputed.

Failure to do this will result in the termination of the service(s) on the account and the account remaining on hold, preventing any new orders or purchases from being completed.

To the extent Awe Video LLC can, Awe Video LLC will do its best to assist copyright owners and their agents who report copyright infringement by a client using Awe Video LLC Services. However, before investigating any report of copyright infringement, Awe Video LLC requires the copyright owner or its authorized agent to give Awe Video LLC a valid and complete DMCA takedown notice if the copyright owner wishes to report what it believes is infringing activity by a third party using Awe Video LLC VPN Services.
