EXHIBIT A
Hosting Services and Fees

Uptime Guarantees:

We offer a Service uptime guarantee of 99% of available time per month. The service uptime guarantee does not apply to service interruptions caused by: (1) periodic scheduled maintenance or repairs we may undertake from time to time; (2) interruptions caused by you or your activities; (3) outages that do not affect core Service functionality; (4) causes beyond our control or that are not reasonably foreseeable; and (5) outages related to the reliability of certain programming environments.

Back-ups:
Unless a backup service is purchased, we are not responsible for Content residing within your hosting account. In no event shall we be held liable for any loss of any Content. It is your sole responsibility to maintain appropriate backup of your Content. Notwithstanding the foregoing, on some occasions and in certain circumstances, with absolutely no obligation, we may be able to restore some or all of your data that has been deleted as of a certain date and time when we may have backed up data for our own purposes. We make no guarantee that the data you need will be available.

If a website management package is purchased, backups are included. Backups are performed every day to an offsite AWS S3 bucket with a 30-day retention period.

Site Downloads
There are three different types of hosting:
If a shared hosting plan is purchased, each user has access to their cPanel account. They can download their website all they desire.

If a managed hosting package is purchased (client requests an Nginx hosting plan), they do not have access to download their website directly from the server. A request has to be sent to support@allydrez.com There is 24-hour turnaround time.

If a dedicated VPS/Server package is purchased, the client will be given SFTP access to their own server where they can download their website.

Bulk Emailing
Shared hosting accounts may not use their accounts as a mail server nor for mass mailing. Customers can, however, sign up for email services with their domains, for example, Mailchimp, as well as point their MX records to an off-server mail handler such as Gmail, but not limited to in order to utilize bulk mailing.

Server Logs
If the customer does not know how to access their own logs via cPanel or a dedicated VPS/Server then a request can be sent to support@allydrez.com. There is a 24-hour turnaround.

Response time

Ally Drez, L.L.C. monitors for tickets Monday – Sunday between the hours of 5 am to 8 pm EST. All tickets are responded to within a 24-hour turnaround given severity level. However, a basic “Tier 1” technical support and troubleshooting of servers beyond hardware-related problems are provided at the sole discretion of Ally Drez, L.L.C. and is in no way bound by a Service Level Agreement unless a website management package has been purchased. Additional support beyond the included hardware support is billable as a managed service at $100 per hour and can be purchased by contacting sales@allydrez.com.

Bandwidth

All disk usage & Bandwidth agreements are the responsibility of the customer to adhere to. If usage goes over the package registered, Ally Drez, L.L.C., will contact customer with over usage warning and an offer for an upgrade. If customer does not respond, Ally Drez, L.L.C., reserves the right to take corrective action for exceeding resources. These actions include but not limited to an upgrade in service, temporarily discontinuing services, additional charges or terminating current service. If an increase in resources are wanted, customer can contact Ally Drez, L.L.C., through the ticket system in their client portal, call 954-526-7722 or email sales@allydrez.com.

Server specs
Server specs are up to the client to choose what they want.

Security/ Database
All servers are updated regularly and monitored daily. When a major update is available for the OS, SQL databases, software and tools a notification will be sent out to customers via an email regarding a system upgrade – including the day and time in which the task will be performed. All updates and upgrades are performed during off-hours (10 pm to 5 am).

All servers have a firewall in place along with virus scans. However, unless a website management package is purchased, it is the sole responsibility of the customer to keep their website patched and a current database type selected.

All customers must read and agree to the terms and conditions, which outline security.

Notice
Ally Drez, L.L.C., requires that all cancellations be made by the subscriber by canceling the subscription with their payment processor and in the Client Area on Ally Drez Web & IT Services website. In the event the customer cancels monthly subscription there is no refund provided unless a yearly subscription was paid in full. At such time, there will be a prorated amount refunded to the customer starting from the following month of cancellation unless action was performed within the first 5 days of a monthly billing cycle. For website solutions where the customer enters into a payment agreement where the cost of development is broken down into monthly payments versus paying upfront, a one-year minimum contract for a hosting package is required. If the customer cancels service prior to that one year, the final balance on the remaining months of service is due.

Late Payment
All customers are responsible for paying on-time. All services are billed according to the dates they were initially activated. If an invoice remains unpaid beyond its due date, there will be a 5-day grace period. All services will be terminated if the payment has not been paid after the 5-day grace period unless there was a prior written agreement set into place between Ally Drez and the customer.

Server Set-up Fee
There is only a setup fee for custom builds, i.e. a customer wants a dedicated VPS/server with a specific OS, applications and tools. These fees start at $500.
