Application and Development
The client is expected to test fully any application or programming relating to a site developed by RentAWebsite.com.au before being made generally available for use. Where “bugs”, errors or other issues are found after the site is live, RentAWebsite.com.au will endeavour (but is not obliged to) to correct these issues to meet the standards of function outlined in the brief
Additional Maintenance & Support
RentAWebsite.com.au may charge for additional work required for any project undertaken. The rate is generally calculated on an hourly basis although this is not always the case. All charges will be agreed with the client before any action is taken.

Compatibility
RentAWebsite.com.au will endeavour to ensure that any designed site or application will function correctly when viewed in all major internet browsers. RentAWebsite.com.au can offer no guarantees of correct function with all browser software. This mobile version is auto-developed and may differ to varying degrees in comparison to your online main site.
Website Hosting
RentAWebsite.com.au hosts all sites on servers with Australian based hosting company Ventraip. This is due to the way we structure our files when we build a site. Hosting must remain on our servers during the rental period

Payment of Accounts
A non-refundable ‘Account Creation Fee’ fee is required from any new client before any work is carried out. All monthly payment will be deducted from nominated financial account. All payment will be processed securely by a third-party payment processor Stripe.

Once the signup fee has been paid and web project has completed, you will start your standing order payments from the first of the next month and each consecutive month thereafter on the 1st. We will contact clients via email and telephone to remind them of such payments if they are not received when due. Once an account has exceeded a period of 7 days or more in arrears, a $55 admin charge may be added to cover admin and hosting costs incurred by RentAWebsite.com.au.
If accounts are not settled or RentAWebsite.com.au have not been contacted regarding the delay, access to the related website may be denied and web pages removed.
Following consistent non-payment of an invoice our Solicitors, a debt collection agency or both will contact the client in question, with a view to taking the matter further and if need be to seek payment through legal procedures, and if necessary, court summons.
Rental Agreement Buy Outs: Clients opting for one of our rental packages may buy out the website at any point. The buyout price can be requested at any point and we will endeavour to provide a buyout quotation within 5 – 10 working day timescale. Once a website has been purchased and is no longer on one of our rental packages, the client is free to use our or any hosting package.
