We are proud to offer you the most affordable hosting options in Ghana. However, our prices are subject to change without any prior notice whatsoever.
At this time we bill monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, annually, every two years and every three years, depending upon the plan. If you are not satisfied within your first 30 days we would be happy to provide you with a full refund (For some special offers the money-back-guaranteed day will be varied; and Domain Name registration fee is non-refundable). We receive payment through Mobile Money (MTN-Ghana). We do not accept payment through any Debit/Credit Card system. For web hosting plans we will setup your account without any payment (Free setup).
Clients are encouraged to pay by Mobile Money as it is the easiest way to handle payment at this time. There are no contract periods but for each successive period, your contract will be renewed once we receive notification of renewal payment otherwise the account is disabled after a ‘grace’ period which will not be without notification.
Uptimux generates full backups of accounts every 7 days which are not bigger than 2GB. If the account is bigger than 2GB, Uptimux reserves the right not to generate the backup automatically. However a client may generate backups from his cPanel at any time regardless of the account size. Uptimux stores a single automatically generated backup of each account which is up to 7 days old and up to 3GB in size, older automatically generated backups of accounts are not stored. Uptimux is not liable for any loss of content if the backup has not been generated or doesn’t include all of client’s data, it is the client’s sole responsibility to backup and safeguard the account data.
4. Late Payments
All accounts are billed according to the dates they were first activated on. You will receive an email reminder within 14 days before deactivation. If you will not pay for service renewal before the day your account expires, your account will be suspended. If you do not pay for hosting package renewal within 30 days after suspension, reactivation after 45 days will attract a penalty fee in addition to the renewal fee. If you do not pay for hosting package renewal within 60 days after deactivation, your hosting package account will be terminated and all your website data will be erased from our servers.
