MUST READ BEFORE TRANSFERRING
How can I transfer my domain to MDansby Web Hosting?
There's two things that must be setup correctly on your domain or the transfer will fail. You must check these 2 things before trying to do a transfer.
1. You must check to make sure if the email on your domain is correct. Once you start the transfer it is going to email this address asking for permission to move the domain. If the email listed isn't your email or doesn't work you can't respond to this email thus the transfer will fail.
2. You must make sure the domain isn't locked. If it is locked even if you agree to the transfer it's going to fail.
You can check both of the above by going to www.whois.sc once here type your domain.com in the field and click submit. Find where it says "Administrative Contact:" This is where your correct email must be listed. Now scroll down to where it says "Status:" if the status says locked you must get this changed before doing the transfer.
To get the above changed you must contact the registar you bought the domain from to do it for you. (some let you make the changes yourself from their control panel)
Note: You can't transfer a domain unless it has been at the current registar for at least 60 days. If your domain is expired you cannot transfer it until you first renew it with the current registar.

How to switch hosts without having any down time
Switching to a new host can be a very smooth process or it can be very complicated. Following our steps will ensure that your move is a painless one.
1) The first step is to find the new host you want to be with and join them. Make sure not to cancel with your old hosting provider, and do not tell them you will be canceling. For the time being you switching host needs to be kept a secret from them, or they could terminate your site early and cause downtime.
2) At this point you should have hosting accounts with two hosting providers the old and the new one. You will now upload your entire site from the old host to the new one. This can be done by connecting to their ftp and downloading all your files. Then connecting to the new hosts ftp and uploading all your files. If you choose to make us your new host we will transfer your entire site over free of charge!
3) After you have all your files on both hosting accounts you will change your domain names dns. Your new host should have provided you with their domain name servers (dns). If they haven't contact them to find out what dns you should use for your domain name.
Dns usually looks like this:
Once you know what dns to use on your domain name you will go to wherever you purchased the domain name from to make the changes. If you purchased your domain name from your host you usually will need to ask them to make the dns changes for you. You will tell them this.... "Hello my domain with you is ____ my username is ___ and my password _____ please change my domain names dns to ns1.thednsyoureceived.com and ns2.thednsyoureceived.com
If you have any questions we would be more then happy to help you, or even make the dns changes for you.
4) Once your dns changes have been made you will need to wait two days before your site will load off the new host. During this two day period your dns is prorogating world wide, and your site will be bouncing from the old host to the new host every other minute randomly. Once the two days is up your site will only be loading off the new host.
5) 48 hours should have passed now since you have updated your dns. If it has you will now contact your host you were moving from and cancel your account with them.
If you completed all the above steps you have successfully switched hosts, with no downtime at all!
MDansby has a 30 day money back guarantee. All service fees paid, minus setup fees and/or domain registration fees, will be refunded once an email is received stating the customer's intention to cancel.
All refund payments will be sent to the customer in the form of a MDansby company check to the billing address on record for the account. If the customer signed up for an account with a contract period that waives the setup fees but then cancel prior to the contract period the normal setup fee will be deducted as if the customer signed up for the same account with no commitment.
If a customer requests to cancel service after the 30 day money back period has expired the amount of service that has been paid for will be provided and the account will be canceled after that period.

NO! MDansby is 100% AGAINST SPAM! If you are caught spamming, your account with us will be terminated. There are much better ways of bringing GOOD traffic to your site.
2. Can I host with you if I send out a newsletter to my subscribers each month?

3. Unsolicited, commercial mass e-mailing (known as "spamming") is a strongly disfavored practice among Internet users and service providers.

Acceptable Use Policy
Acceptable Uses Policy As a web host provider ("Web Hosting"), we offer our subscribers the means to acquire and disseminate a wealth of public, private, commercial and non-commercial information. We also want our subscribers to be fully informed of their rights and obligations -- and ours -- in connection with their use of the Internet. This Network Access Policy, which supplements and explains certain terms of each customer's respective services agreement (the "Services Agreement"), is intended as a plain English guide to those rights and obligations.
The fundamental fact about the Internet is that no one --neither us, nor anyone else -- 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 the Internet, both in the information they acquire and in the information they disseminate to others. MDansby subscribers obtain information through the Internet, they must keep in mind that we cannot monitor, verify, warrant or vouch for the accuracy and quality of the information that subscribers may 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 is sexually explicit or otherwise offensive. Because we cannot monitor and censor the Internet, and will not attempt to do so, we cannot accept any responsibility for injury to our subscribers that results from inaccurate, unsuitable or offensive Internet communications.
MDansby subscribers disseminate information through the Internet, they also must keep in mind that we do not review, edit, censor or take responsibility for any information our subscribers may create. This places on subscribers what will be, for most, an unfamiliar responsibility. MDansby 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 they create is carried over our facilities and may reach a large number of people, including both subscribers and non-subscribers of ours, subscribers' postings to the Internet may affect other subscribers and may harm our goodwill, business reputation and operations. For these reasons, subscribers violate our policy and the Services Agreement MDansby they, their affiliates or subsidiaries engage in the following activities: Other Activities, MDansby ther lawful or unlawful, that we determine to be harmful to our subscribers, operations or reputation, including any activities that restrict or inhibit any other user from using and enjoying the service or the Internet.
As we have pointed out, the responsibility for avoiding the harmful activities just described rests primarily with the subscriber. We will not, as an ordinary practice, monitor the communications of our subscribers to ensure that they comply with our policy or applicable law. MDansby we become aware of harmful communications, however, we may take any of a variety of actions. We may remove information that violates our policies, implement screening software designed to block offending transmissions, or take any other action we deem appropriate, including termination of a subscriber's contract with us.

We do not require our subscribers who offer Internet services to monitor or censor transmissions created by customers of its subscribers. At the same time, subscribers who knowingly transmit materials that violate law or our policy are themselves, in violation of our policy. Similarly, we anticipate that subscribers who offer Internet services will cooperate with us in any corrective action that we deem necessary, in order to correct and prevent the transmission of material that is harmful to us or our subscribers. Failure to cooperate with such corrective and preventive measures is a violation of our policy.
We also are concerned with the privacy of on-line communications. In general, the Internet is neither more nor less secure than other common communications media, including mail, facsimile and voice telephone service, all of which can be intercepted and otherwise compromised. As a matter of prudence, however, we urge our subscribers to assume that all of their on-line communications are insecure.
We cannot take any responsibility for the security of communications transmitted over our facilities. We will comply fully, however, with all applicable laws concerning the privacy of our subscribers' on-line communications. In particular, we will not intentionally monitor or disclose any private electronic mail messages sent or received by our subscribers unless required to do so by law. We may, however, monitor our service electronically to determine that our facilities are operating satisfactorily. Also, we may be required to disclose information transmitted through our facilities in order to comply with court orders, statutes, regulations or governmental requests. Finally, we may disclose information transmitted over our facilities MDansby necessary to protect us and our subscribers from computer harm, or MDansby such disclosure is necessary to the proper operation of the system.
We expect that our subscribers who provide Internet services to others will comply fully with all applicable laws concerning the privacy of on-line communications. A subscriber's failure to comply with those laws will violate our policy. Finally, we wish to emphasize that in signing the Services Agreement, subscribers indemnify us for any violation of the subscriber of the Services Agreement, or of law orMDansby. policy, that results in loss to us or the bringing of any claim against us. This means that if we are sued because of activities of the subscriber that violate any law, the Services Agreement or this policy (which is part of the Services Agreement), the subscriber will pay any damages awarded against us, plus costs and reasonable attorneys' fees. oooooooo We hope this Policy Statement is helpful in clarifying the obligations of Internet users, including our subscribers, as responsible members of the Internet and us.
