Kholifa Network provides Web Hosting for Bangladeshi Peoples, and we have a responsibility to protect each client and to provide the best services available. All clients of Kholifa Network’s are subject to the following terms of service:
The use of services from Kholifa Network constitute agreement to these terms.
1. Account Setup / Email on file:
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 Kholifa Network, 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. Kholifa Network is not responsible for a lapsed registration due to outdated contact information being associated with the domain.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 or Support Ticket. 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.
Transfers: 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 cannot 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 extremely 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 30 days from your sign-up date. Transfers outside of the 30-day free period will incur a charge; please contact a member of the transfers department with specific details to receive a price quote.
All services provided by Kholifa Network may only be used for lawful purposes. The laws of the Bangladesh Cyber Act 2006 and any further amended laws apply.

Kholifa Network services, including all related equipment, networks and network devices are provided only for authorized customer use. Kholifa Network systems may be monitored for all lawful purposes, including ensuring that use is authorized, for management of the system, to facilitate protection against unauthorized access, and to verify security procedures, survivability, and operational security. During monitoring, information may be examined, recorded, copied and used for authorized purposes. Use of Kholifa Network system(s) constitutes consent to monitoring for these purposes. Any account found connecting to a third party network or system without authorization from the third party is subject to suspension. Access to networks or systems outside of your direct control must be with expressed written consent from the third party. Kholifa Network may, at its discretion, request and require documentation to prove access to a third party network or system is authorized. We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone. Any material that, in our judgment, is obscene, threatening, illegal, or violates our terms of service in any manner may be removed from our servers (or otherwise disabled), with or without notice.

Sites hosted on Kholifa Network service(s) are regulated only by Bangladeshi law. Given this fact, and pursuant to Section 230(c) of the Communications Decency Act, we do not remove allegedly defamatory material from domains hosted on our service(s). The only exception to this rule is if the material has been found to be defamatory by a court, as evidenced by a court order. Kholifa Network is not in a position to investigate and validate or invalidate the veracity of individual defamation claims, which is why we rely on the legal system and courts to determine whether or not material is indeed considered defamatory. In any case in which a court order indicates material is defamatory, libelous, or slanderous in nature; we will disable access to the material. Similarly, in any case in which a Bangladesh Court has placed an injunction against specified content or material; we will comply and remove or disable access to the material in question.
The language of Section 230(c) of the Communications Decency Act fundamentally states that Internet services providers like kholifa.com and many of Kholifa Network other webhosting services and brands are republishes and not the publisher of content. Our service merely provides a hosting platform and space on which to host content, and any creation or publication of content on our services is the sole responsibility of the third-party user which creates or publishes the content. Therefore, kholifa.com should not be held liable for any allegedly defamatory, offensive or harassing content published on sites hosted under kholifa.com webhosting service(s).
If in doubt regarding the acceptability of your site or service, please contact us at [email protected] and we will be happy to assist you.
Potential harm to minors is strictly forbidden, including but not limited to child pornography or content perceived to be child pornography (Lolita): Any site found to host child pornography or linking to child pornography will be suspended immediately without notice.
Direct customers: Your services will be terminated with or without notice. Violations will be reported to the appropriate law enforcement agency. It is your responsibility to ensure that scripts/programs installed under your account are secure and permissions of directories are set properly, regardless of installation method. When at all possible, set permissions on most directories to 755 or as restrictive as possible. Users are ultimately responsible for all actions taken under their account. This includes the compromise of credentials such as user name and password. It is required that you use a secure password. If a weak password is used, your account may be suspended until you agree to use a more secure password. Audits may be done to prevent weak passwords from being used. If an audit is performed, and your password is found to be weak, we will notify you and allow time for you to change/update your password.
3. Zero Tolerance Spam Policy:
We take a zero-tolerance stance against sending of unsolicited e-mail, bulk emailing, and spam. Safe lists and purchased lists will be treated as spam. Any user who sends out spam will have their account terminated with or without notice.

If you do not hear back from us, or do not receive the automatic confirmation email within a few minutes after submitting your cancellation, please contact us immediately via phone. We require that cancellations of service are done through the online form to (a) confirm your identity, (b) confirm in writing you are prepared for all files/emails to be removed, and (c) document the request.
