Servers, Data Storage, Accessibility and Security:
1. All Webkey installations employ current versions of the MySQL and PHP platform. Currently, we do not support other platforms.
2. All technical support required to configure, coordinate and transfer an existing database is in addition to all standard Webkey plans.
3. The Webkey interface will be hosted in whole or in part (at our sole discretion) on our servers at www.webkey.us or related servers.
4. The Basic Package includes the following features: 1 gigabyte account storage, 21 gigabyte monthly transfer, open source database platform support, unlimited email accounts (the first 5 accounts are setup for free, additional accounts may be configured on an hourly basis). Domain name registration, renewal, OR transfer is included for one domain name per year only while additional registrations, renewals or transfers may be arranged at additional cost.
5. Our servers support 128 bit web standard encryption using secure socket layers (SSL). Third-party security certificates may be purchased at an additional cost and require annual fees for the duration of the certificate. The Basic Package and any additional modules do not include the security certificate nor its installation on the server, but can be contracted at an additional fee. Webkey strongly recommends the use of secure pages and encryption for all database-enabled websites that handle sensitive information and encourages clients to add this level of security to their contracted sites. The client remains solely responsible in his/her decision to employ or reject this security feature.
6. The Webkey administrative interface is tested and supported on the following browsers: Internet Explorer 8+, Firefox 2+, Safari 3+, and Chrome 1+. Please note that the antiquated and insecure versions of Internet Explorer before version 8 are not supported.
IMPORTANT: In consideration of the reduced usage and extra costs to program a website for the inconsistencies and lack of support of modern browser features found in Internet Explorer 6 and 7, we DO NOT support these antiquated and insecure browsers by default. Upon request, we can program work-arounds to address those inconsistencies in a user-friendly manner OR program an alert to display only to visitors to your site who are using IE6 or IE7 that encourages upgrading or switching to a modern browser, and provides links to download several free options. Estimated range to bring website into compliance is between 3 and 9 hours and, if requested, will be billed hourly.
