Web consulting service
The Web Consulting Service is a technical consulting, web programming and site maintenance service offered by the Company. It is billed at a rate established on the Platform or during communications with the Company's support team, by means of a quote.
When the Company is called upon to work on a system originally designed by a third party, the Company is not responsible for anything and offers no guarantee.
Furthermore, the Company is not responsible for the interpretation and use of the information transmitted during the consultation services, nor for the consequences that this may have on the User.

Dedicated ip address
All dedicated IP addresses assigned to the User must be maintained in accordance with ARIN standards and regulations (https://www.arin.net/policy/nrpm.html).
With web hosting, reseller hosting and WordPress hosting services, the User will be assigned a shared IP address. Thereafter, the User may request one (1) dedicated IP address per hosting account.
Although a dedicated IP is no longer required for SSL Certificates, the Company reserves the right to evaluate the appropriateness of any request for a dedicated IP address, and to deny such requests if they do not comply with ARIN regulations. The User is aware that the Company rarely grants dedicated IP addresses and that additional fees may apply if a dedicated IP address is granted. The Company retains full control and rights to assigned IP addresses at all times, and reserves the right to change or remove assigned addresses without prior notice. A change of dedicated IP address may result in up to 24 hours of downtime for the User's website due to DNS propagation.
In most cases, the Company can help the User move a website from a compatible external provider to its servers. However, if the User requires a turnkey transfer service, it is possible to request an estimate from the Company. Transfer fees are charged according to the complexity and number of hours required.
The Company cannot make any guarantee as to the availability, accuracy, possibility, or time required to complete such a migration. Each hosting company is different, and some hosting platforms store data in incompatible or confidential formats which may make it difficult or impossible to migrate some or all of the data in an account. In some cases and due to technical reasons beyond the Company's direct control, the Company may be unable to assist the User in transferring data from the former hosting provider.
