The client understands that any web hosting services require a separate contract with the web hosting service. The client agrees to select a web hosting service which allows Self Publishing, Inc. full access to the website via FTP.

4. Domain Names

Valsof Graphics Inc may purchase domain names on behalf of the Client, in which case they will then be renewed on an annual basis and the Client will be invoiced by Valsof Graphics Inc. For .com, .org and .net domains, reminder emails will be sent out to the client before the domain expires at ninety (90), sixty (60), thirty (30) and five (5) days before expiration with a final email sent ten (10) days after the expiration date. In this case, the Client must notify Valsof Graphics Inc that they do not wish to keep the domain thirty (30) days before the expiration date.

The Client should keep a record of the due dates for payment to ensure that payment is received in good time.
