SystemCore reserves the right to move your domain to a different web server with no previous notice.
We will endeavour to provide a continuous high quality service. If you experience problems with your service, you should consult our support sections on our website. Note: if your broadband connection is unavailable then you should use either your previous connection or our free account 0845 dial up service. Should you fail to find a resolution to your problem, you will find our 24/7 support contact details within our support sections: www.systemcore.co.uk/customersupport and www.systemcore.co.uk/support
Please note we may require suspension of some of our services for short scheduled periods to carry out maintenance or repair to our services. Information concerning scheduled downtime is available in the SystemCore Support section as are any interruptions to our services.
Reselling of Services
All accounts other than our Reseller account are to be used by the primary owner only, and do not allow the holders to resell, store or give away web-hosting services of their website to other parties.
Web hosting services are defined as allowing a separate, third party to host content on the owner’s web site. Exceptions to this include ad banners, classified ads, and personal ads.
Customers may however resell all of our services with our Reseller package.
SystemCore reserve the right to suspend access to the API facilities of the Reseller account if a customer’s use is deemed to be affecting the platform. Access will be reinstated pending investigation and appropriate fixes to any conflicts.
Unlimited use policy
High bandwidth usage: For some customers, in addition to our stated bandwidth allowances, SystemCore offers an unlimited use policy by maintaining very large ratios of bandwidth per customer. In rare cases, SystemCore may find a customer to be using server resources to such an extent that he or she may jeopardize server performance and resources for other customers. In such instances, SystemCore reserves the right to impose the High Resource User Policy for the consideration of all customers.
If you exceed the limits on our database products (MS SQL and MySQL) then we will automatically charge you for the additional space you use at our current prices. For example if you have a 150MB database and 200MB is in use at any point during a month then we will charge for the extra 150MB (at our current prices) in that month.
High resource use policy
Resources are defined as bandwidth, processor utilization or disk space. SystemCore may implement the following policy to its sole discretion: When a website is found to be monopolising the resources available SystemCore reserves the right to suspend that site immediately. This policy is only implemented in extreme circumstances and is intended to prevent the misuse of our servers. Customers may be offered an option whereby SystemCore continues hosting the website for an additional fee.
Uploads via scripting languages
We limit uploads made via scripting languages – including PHP, ASP and ASP.NET – to a maximum of 4 MB per file.
All accounts are set up on a prepay basis. Although SystemCore reserves the right to change prices of accounts or services at any time, all pricing is guaranteed for the period of prepayment. Payment is due every 30 or 365 days, following the date the account was established. Customers will automatically be charged again at the end of their prepay period unless closure notification has already been given.
In situations where the card number on file is declined SystemCore will immediately suspend the facility to purchase services on-line until the outstanding charge is processed successfully. In addition, SystemCore reserves the right to suspend other services until the outstanding debt is cleared. The customer is responsible for all money owed on the account from the time it was established to the time that the customer sends a written cancellation request.
No bills or invoices will be sent by regular mail. All invoices will be sent directly to customers via email shortly after the online purchase has been made. At this point the customer’s card will be charged automatically.
All payment is in UK sterling.
You are required to have a valid credit/debit card and email address registered on your account at all times, failure to do so may result in suspension of your account.
Please note that whilst this email is primarily used for billing purposes, SystemCore reserves the right to email you information about enhancements to our systems and product offerings. Your email will not be passed to any other parties at any time.
In order to streamline our accounting procedures and keep costs down SystemCore currently runs a limited number of payment options.
Credit / Debit Cards: SystemCore accepts MasterCard, Visa, Visa Electron & PayPal.
This option is only available to business customers who pay annually for their SystemCore account. A credit/debit card number will still be required if customers require the facility to purchase domains and other services on-line. SystemCore cannot guarantee that a service will be provided until after any received cheques have been cleared.
Discretionary 30 day trial
For some customers opening their first account the initial 30 days are available on a trial basis. For special promotions offered at discounted prices the trial period is limited to the initial 7 days. Customers will not be entitled to this benefit if they have previously had an account with SystemCore unless the period of absence has been greater than one year. New customers will not be entitled to a trial period if any account has previously been created at the same postal address within the same 12 month time span.
The 30 day trial does not apply to our Broadband or Dedicated Server offerings.
Cancellation and refunds
SystemCore reserves the right to cancel the service at any time. In this event customers will be entitled to a pro rata refund based upon the remaining period of membership. If a customer contravenes SystemCore’ terms of service a refund will not be issued in the event of a cancellation.
Customers may cancel their account at any time. During the initial 30 day trial period customers who wish to cancel will be entitled to a full refund for their hosting fees only, but will not be entitled to a refund for any additional services purchased. Any incentives offered to customers when opening the account will also be cancelled. Customers may be given the option to purchase services which were offered as start-up incentives in the result of a cancellation.
Fees charged on a prepay basis are non-refundable. Once the initial trial period has expired customers are not entitled to receive a refund unless the service is cancelled by SystemCore. In addition some accounts incur set-up fees, these charges are also non-refundable.
Discretionary LiveMail free trial

2. Domain names
The following terms and conditions apply to the domain registration service:
SystemCore is able to provide Internet domain registration services through our chosen registrars (registrations service provider), for second-level domain names within the .com, .org, .net, .co.uk, .org.uk, .ltd.uk and .plc.uk top-level domains.
ICANN oversees the .com, .org and .net top-level domains. Nominet oversees the .co.uk, .org.uk, .ltd.uk and .plc.uk top-level domains.
Upon SystemCore’s receipt of domain name registration information from you, SystemCore shall submit the information to the registry administrator for the appropriate top-level domain for approval and processing. The registry administrator then puts into effect the domain name registration. Network Solutions, Inc. currently acts as the registry administrator for the .com, .org, and .net top-level domains. Nominet UK acts as the registry administrator for the .co.uk, .org.uk, .ltd.uk and .plc.uk top-level domains.
SELECTION OF A DOMAIN NAME
You represent that, to the best of the your knowledge and belief, neither this registration of a domain name nor the manner in which it is directly or indirectly to be used infringes upon the legal rights of a third party and, further, that the domain name is not being registered for nor shall it at any time whatsoever be used for any unlawful purpose whatsoever.
If you are registering your name during the finite period of time when owners of trademarks and service marks issued prior to October 2, 2000 and having national effect will have the exclusive opportunity to register identical domain names (“Sunrise Period”). You acknowledge and agree that registrations for domain names during the Sunrise Period will only be accepted for a minimum registration term of five (5) years.
Registrations in the .name top-level domain must constitute an individual’s “Personal Name”. For purposes of the .name restrictions (the “Restrictions”), a “Personal Name” is a person’s legal name, or a name by which the person is commonly known. A “name by which a person is commonly known” includes, without limitation, a pseudonym used by an author or painter, or a stage name used by a singer or actor.
As consideration for SystemCore providing domain name registration services to you, you agree to pay SystemCore, prior to the approval of the desired domain name registration, the amounts set forth in the SystemCore Price Schedule, as amended from time to time, for the initial registration of the domain name and any subsequent renewals.
Your application will not be registered until SystemCore receives actual payment of the registration fee. If SystemCore does register a domain name prior to payment of the registration fee, SystemCore reserves the right to cancel that registration or restrict use of the domain name until payment has been received.
All fees must be prepaid and are non-refundable, in whole or in part, even if the domain name registration is suspended, cancelled or transferred prior to the end of the registration term.
In the event of a charge back by a credit card company or other payment provider authorized by SystemCore, the domain name registration shall be transferred to SystemCore as the paying entity for the registration. SystemCore may reinstate your domain name registration at its sole discretion upon its receipt of the registration or renewal fee and its then current reinstatement fee. The reinstatement fee is currently UK £100.
Payment must be made by credit card or other methods we indicate in registration application or renewal form. We will renew your name for you provided your credit card or other billing information is available and up to date. If your billing information is not accurate and you wish to renew your domain name registration, we will contact you to update this information and charge accordingly.
We reserve the right to make an administration charge of £10 per domain where customers have attempted to register a domain name with multiple registrars.
This Agreement shall remain in full force during the length of the term of your domain name registration(s) as selected, recorded, and paid for upon registration of the domain name. Should you choose to renew or otherwise lengthen the term of your domain name registration, then the term of this Registration Agreement shall be extended accordingly. Should the domain name be transferred to another Registrar, the terms and conditions of this contract shall cease.
To ensure your domains are not lost we operate a positive renewal system on all our domains – you will be notified in advance that your domain is about to expire and given the option to opt out of the renewal, if of any reason you do not contact us, then we will ensure your registration continues and automatically renew your domain. This is not refundable and it is your responsibility to ensure valid contact and payment details are on your account at all times – failure can lead to suspension.
SystemCore’ domain renewal process is automated and we confirm all domain renewals by email. However, it is your responsibility to check that your renewal has been successful within one month of the renewal date. For .uk domains you can do this using Nominet’s WhoIs search, and for all other domains we recommend using the Tucows website domain lookup facility.
You agree to be bound by the SystemCore Domain Name Dispute Policy (the “Dispute Policy”), as amended from time to time, which is hereby incorporated and made a part of this Agreement by reference. The Dispute Policy can be found at the end of this document.
The Dispute Policy governs any dispute between you and any party other than us over the registration and use of the domain name. The specific disputes which are subject to the Dispute Policy are contained in the Dispute Policy. You agree that you will be subject to the provisions specified in the Dispute Policy in effect at the time the domain name registration is disputed by a third party.
You also agree that in the event a domain name dispute arises with any third party, you shall indemnify and hold SystemCore harmless pursuant to the terms and conditions contained in the Dispute Policy.
CHANGES TO REGISTRATION AGREEMENT AND DISPUTE POLICY
You acknowledge and recognize that the domain name system and the practice of registering and administering domain names are continuously evolving, and acknowledge and agree that SystemCore may modify this Agreement and the Dispute Policy as necessary from time to time to comply with any agreements by which SystemCore is or will be bound, and to adjust to changing business circumstances.
Your continued use of the registered domain name constitutes acceptance of this Agreement and amendments. If at any time, you do not agree to such changes, you agree that your sole remedy is to request that your domain name registration be cancelled or transferred to a different domain name registrar.
CONTACT WITH SYSTEMCORE
You acknowledge and recognize that all contact with SystemCore in the first instance should be made via our support sections: www.systemcore.co.uk/customersupport and www.systemcore.co.uk/support
