Maulanaweb reserves the right to add, delete or modify any provision of this policy at any time without notice. You agree to be bound by any

changes Maulanaweb may reasonably make to this agreement when such changes are made. The Maulanaweb Hosting Terms will

commence and become binding on the Customer with immidiate effect from the Commencement Date.

Satisfaction Guaranteed

30 Day Guarantee Statement. If for any reason you are unhappy with the services you receive from Maulanaweb during the first 30 days of

service, you may request, in writing or, via email to You must also state a detailed reason as to why you are

cancelling your service (as we request for any cancellation, no matter the time frame). We are the sole arbiter as to if your reason is a valid

reason and if all possible steps were taken on your side and on ours to correct the situation causing the interest to cancel. Refunds are not given

even if an annual payment has been made, if you abuse your unlimited plan by engaging in one of the restricted activities mentioned in these

terms and conditions.

New Accounts

ll new web hosting accounts purchased on our order page are set up within 2 hours by our account administrators.

You will receive two (2) emails including login details after your purchase. Due to unforeseen complications with various mail

servers and any connection problems between your ISP and Maulanaweb, this process may sometimes be delayed.

Domain Names and Domain Transfers

n order for your domain name to point to the Maulanaweb server your new account is located on, you must change your

DNS (Domain Name Servers) at your registrar. These DNS are located in your welcome email and they are defined in a pair

(primary- ns1* and secondary- Please note: Our DNS are unique to each server, so for example;

if you sign up and then a few months later open another account, you will not be using the same DNS as before.

A domain transfer is if you want to physically transfer your domain and away from your original registrar.

You must create an account at and initiate a transfer. A domain transfer is free and that goes towards one

year of registration with Maulanaweb, added on to your current registration period with the previous registrar.

Maulanaweb will take necessary steps to register domain names on behalf of the client when requested. However,

clients are responsible for renewing their domain names.Maulanaweb does not take responsibility for failing to renew

domain names. If your domain name was registered via our company, you must check and take appropriate actions to

renew a domain that is about to expire. If you have any questions at all about DNS changes or domain names in general,

please open a ticket at our helpdesk.


Maulanaweb believes in freedom of speech; however, any content (written, visual, or implied) in the following areas will

not be tolerated and is grounds for immediate suspension of service (in most cases customer will be allowed a zip file of their

account): racism or prejudice due to colour, creed, or belief; any violent/malicious/obscene content written, visually or implied.

We prefer that you self-govern your content and remain responsible and all-knowing of what your website publically provides.

Even if other users have access to your account, you are responsible for their actions. The resources and time needed to govern

our servers by checking each website individually, which will have growing and evolving content, is impossible. However, if Maulanaweb

 is made aware of any questionable content on a Maulanaweb-hosted site, we will address the concerns immediately

and directly with you to seek an amiable resolution. Using a shared account as a backup/storage device is not permitted, with the

exception of one cPanel backup of the same account. Please do not take backups of your backups.

Resource Usage

User may not:

    Use 25% or more of system resources for longer then 90 seconds. There are numerous activities that could cause such problems; these include: CGI scripts, FTP,     PHP, HTTP, etc.

    Run stand-alone, unattended server-side processes at any point in time on the server. This includes any and all daemons, such as IRCD.

    Run any type of web spider or indexer (including Google Cash / AdSpy) on shared servers.

    Run any software that interfaces with an IRC (Internet Relay Chat) network.

    Run any bit torrent application, tracker, or client. You may link to legal torrents off-site, but may not host or store them on our shared servers.

    Participate in any file-sharing/peer-to-peer activities

    Run any gaming servers such as counter-strike, half-life, battlefield1942, etc

    Run cron entries with intervals of less than 15 minutes.

    Run any MySQL queries longer than 15 seconds. MySQL tables should be indexed appropriately.

    When using PHP include functions for including a local file, include the local file rather than the URL. Instead of include

    ("") use include("include.php").

    To help reduce usage, do not force html to handle server-side code (like php and shtml).

    Only use https protocol when necessary; encrypting and decrypting communications is noticeably more CPU-intensive than

    unencrypted communications.

    sites in excess of 15 000 files are automatically excluded from backups

    we have an inode policy of 50 000 files you may not host more than 50 000 files on a shared server.
