    1. If required, we will register one domain name of your choice with a “.co.uk”  or ".com"extension. The renewal of the domain name is not included in the monthly price. If you are an existing client with a domain name registered by us, on your behalf, the future domain name renewals will not be included in the monthly price. Domain names are classed as a separate item and are billed accordingly. Any other domain name extensions or additional domain names requested can be registered by us on your behalf and are charged at our standard rate in addition to the monthly direct debit amount.

    1. A Prompt agrees to design and build a responsive website that adheres to the W3C and WAI compliance levels at the time of build. It is the responsibility of the Customer to ensure their website remains responsive and compliant by adding appropriate content, e.g. tap targets.
    1. Shared hosting is included in your Pay-as-you-go website package. However should your web site's bandwidth usage reach the point where it causes an adverse effect on other Clients, we reserve the right to disable your web site until such a time as you are able to reduce your bandwidth usage.
    2. Each CMS Express or Premium website hosted by us includes up to 10Gb of bandwidth per month. If you use more than this amount, you agree to pay for this additional bandwidth at a rate of £10.00 per 1000Mb per month of usage.
    3. Each CMS website comes with a maximum of 1Gb disk space. You are not permitted to use more than this amount.
    4. From time to time the server on which your domain is hosted or its connection to the Internet may be inaccessible or inoperable for any reason, including, without limitation: (i) equipment malfunctions; (ii) maintenance procedures or repairs which may need to be undertaken; or (iii) causes beyond our control or which we cannot reasonably foresee. We will endeavour to ensure that your website is available at all times, but you acknowledge that computer and telecommunications systems are not error free and that we will not be liable to you or any other person for loss of revenue or earnings or any other loss that you suffer as a result of your website being unavailable or inaccessible at any time.
    5. You are not permitted to host the Pay-as-you-go website elsewhere, nor are you permitted to have a copy of the website files. 
    1. You may elect to upgrade your Express website after a 24 month period to a different package.
    2. You may elect to upgrade your Premium website after a 36 month period to a different package.
    3. For Express Website Packages only: If you have paid in full by direct debit continuously for a 24 month period we may offer to provide a new website design for free from a selection of pre-designed templates. You are not obliged to have a new design but you may request one after each 24 month period if you wish. You will not be required to pay a new set-up fee. The website content you add to your first Express Website will be transferred to your next Express Website, free of charge. Please note that designs may differ therefore if your first website design has a side editable area and the next website design you choose does not have a side editable area, the content in the side editable area will not be transferred to the new website design. But as the site is editable by you, you can add/edit the content when the site is ready on our development server. We hold no responsibility for loss of data and it is the responsibility of the Client to ensure all content added to the site is legally owned by them and is formatted correctly for SEO purposes. We reserve the right to change the terms at any time, without notice.
    4. For Premium Website Packages only: If you have paid in full by direct debit continuously for a 36 month period you may request a new website design. A set-up fee will be required and this will start a new website agreement. We reserve the right to change the terms at any time, without notice.
    5. You may cancel the Website Services at any time, with 30 days’ advance notice in writing to A Prompt Ltd. We may, with 30 days' notice to you in advance, elect to cancel your website, hosting, domain name and email services. No refunds are available on any of these services.
    6. Direct Debit Failure: If the direct debit payment for your services fails on the 1st attempt, your direct debit will be presented again for payment. If, on the 2nd attempt, your direct debit fails again you will be charged an administration fee of £60+VAT which is payable in all instances and is in addition to your website services direct debit amount. We will, at our discretion, also suspend all your website and email services without prior notice. An administration charge of £90+VAT will then also be payable by the Customer to Us before the Website is re-instated, if the Customer wishes the Website Services to be re-instated. Therefore totalling £150+VAT before the website and email services can be re-instated.
    7. If the direct debit is cancelled by the Customer without 30 days’ advance notice in writing to A Prompt Ltd then A Prompt Ltd will have no option but to remove all Website Services for that Customer for that package without prior notice. An administration charge of £90+VAT will be payable by the Customer to Us before the Website is re-instated if the Customer wishes the Website Services to be re-instated.
    8. If the Website Services are cancelled and no other website is required then the CMS Express website, hosting and email services may no longer be used by the Customer. For CMS Premium websites - if cancelled after a 36 month period of continuous payment - the same applies for the hosting, email services but we will give you the files for the bespoke design and CSS files + images within the website. You will not be given the admin area, so your website will be given to you as a 'static' site that you can keep.
    9. Domain names can be transferred away if requested and a transfer out fee will be due before the transfer can be actioned. If no transfer is required, the domain name will be set to expire automatically.
