resulting from any interruption of service are difficult to ascertain.
Therefore, subscriber agrees that the company shall not be liable for
any damages arising from such causes beyond the direct and exclusive
control of the company. Subscriber further acknowledges that the
company's liability for its own negligence may not in any event exceed
an amount equivalent to charges payable by subscriber for services

All new web hosting accounts involving new
domains will be set up and entered into our DNS servers within 3 to 5
business days. Due to unforeseen complications, however, this process
may sometimes require up to 7 business days. If the new domain is
registered by the account holder, there will be no handling fee. If
the domain is registered by Also Networks on behalf of the account
holder a handling fee will be incurred.
Transfer Of Domains
New web hosting accounts which involve the transfer of a domain from
another provider to Also Networks will require a minimum of seven (7)
days to be set up and entered into our DNS servers. In some cases,
such transfers may take up to sixty (60) days. Due to the
unpredictable nature of the transfer process, no guarantees are made
regarding the amount of time a specific transfer may take. If the
transfer of the domain is done by Also Networks on behalf of the

cancels service during the transfer period for any reason, all charges
