Terms of service
The use of services from cloudhost.com.ng, referred to as "Cloudhost" constitutes agreement to these terms.
We will setup your account after we have received payment and we and/or our payment partner(s)
have screened the order(s) in case of fraud. It is your responsibility to provide us with an
email address which is not @ the domain(s) you are signing up under. If there is ever an abuse
issue or we need to contact you, the primary email address on file will be used for this
purpose. It is your responsibility to ensure the email address on file is current or up
to date at all times. If you have a domain name registered with CloudHost, it is your
responsibility to ensure that the contact information for your domain account and your
actual domain name(s) is correct and up-to-date. CloudHost is not responsible for a
lapsed registration due to outdated contact information being associated with the domain.
If you need to verify or change this information, you should contact our sales team via email.
Providing false contact information of any kind may result in the termination of your account.
In dedicated server purchases or high risk transactions, it will be necessary to provide government issued identification and possibly a scan of the credit card used for the purchase. If you fail to meet these requirements, the order may be considered fraudulent in nature and be denied.
Our transfers team will make every effort to help you move your site to us.
However, transfers are provided as a courtesy service, and we can not make
guarantees regarding the availability, possibility, or time required to complete
an account transfer. Each hosting company is configured differently, and some
hosting platforms save data in an incompatible or proprietary format,
which may make it very difficult if not impossible to migrate some or all account data.
We will try our best, but in some cases we may be unable to assist you in a transfer of
data from an old host.
The free transfer services are available for 10 days from your sign up date.
Transfers outside of the 10 day free period will incur a charge; please contact us
with specific details to receive a price quote for the service.

from the use of our services.
