domain name that is registered with a Registry Operator, through an ICANN-accredited
Domain Name Registrar.
2. SERVICE DESCRIPTION: As a World Wide Web, Information Technology, and
Internet Service Provider, Cape Cod Web Service provides Internet Web
hosting, ecommerce, domain registration, and associated services,
hereafter referred to as the "Service" or "Services." For this purpose,
Cape Cod Web Service may maintain a network of dedicated server computers,
routers, hubs, switches, and other equipment (collectively, the "Network")
located in an undisclosed location in the, USA, and integrated with the
Internet. This Network sends and receives data and information via the
World Wide Web. Customer wishes to connect to the Web and establish an
Internet Web presence by utilizing the various resources of Cape Cod Web
Service's Network and Cape Cod Web Service's Services. The quantity, type,
and duration of Services provided to Customer shall be as Customer has
already affirmatively selected in the Cape Cod Web Service
application/order form. (See summary of options in paragraph 18, below.)
a. The Cape Cod Web Service application/order form for Web space and
Services; Cape Cod Web Service's AUP; and Cape Cod Web Service's BP are
incorporated herein by reference, as if fully set out. The foregoing
constitutes a legal and binding contract between Cape Cod Web Service and
Customer, which does not extend to any other person or entity.
b. Customer may resell to third parties, but is responsible for third
party activities and content, and is bound by the terms of this Agreement.
c. The duration of this Agreement, as to its Initial Term and any renewal
thereof, shall be as Customer has already affirmatively selected on the

Customer exceeds the virtual host limit for a particular Cape Cod Web
Service service plan, however, Cape Cod Web Service will automatically
upgrade Customer's account to the next-higher service plan, and bill
Customer according to the upgraded plan, and Customer will pay according
to the upgraded plan.
e. Also IAW the BP, cancellations made after an application has been
received by Cape Cod Web Service, and after Web space has been set up by
Cape Cod Web Service, do not nullify Customer responsibility to pay costs
incurred by Cape Cod Web Service in setting up said Web space. To protect
Customer's data from malicious deletion or other tampering, and to protect
Cape Cod Web Service from liability therefore, all cancellations by
Customer must be accomplished exactly IAW the Cape Cod Web Service BP.
