CUSTOMER must contact KEBECWEB to update their account to take into account the latest sales figures. KEBECWEB does not offer any discount if CUSTOMER has not updated their account.

Reseller Packages

Level 1 – 5% = 0-$500 in sales
Level 2 – 7% = $501-$4,500 in sales
Level 3 – 10% = $4,501 -$12,000 in sales
Level 4 – 12% = $12,001-$25,000 in sales
Level 5 – 15% = $25,001 in sales and up

CUSTOMER must have a RESELLER web hosting account in order to qualify for the discounts.

Domain Names

KEBECWEB follows all ICANN regulations concerning domain names.

Domain Renewal

Domain names registered with KEBECWEB must be renewed 14 days minimum before their expiry. CUSTOMERS will receive email notifications that the domain renewal date is approaching. KEBECWEB’s default is to disable automatic renewal as a customer protection measure. This is why a MINIMUM of 14 days is required in order to renew a domain name. If you renew your domain closer to the expiration date, you run the risk of having it blocked and incurring additional costs to unlock it.

SSL Certificates

KEBECWEB adheres to the regulations of all the certification authorities it represents. KEBECWEB-branded SSL certificates are sold under the Kebecweb name but are RapidSSL certificates.

SSL Certificate Ordering

Once you order an SSL certificate, you will be required to provide additional information, such as a CSR and, in the case of a SAN SSL certificate, an alternate domain. It is the responsibility of the CUSTOMER to install the certificate (and have the necessary technical skills to do so), with the exception of CUSTOMERS whose site(s) is/are hosted on KEBECWEB’s servers. For sites hosted on KEBECWEB servers, KEBECWEB will install the certificates at no additional cost to the CUSTOMER, other than the cost of the dedicated IP required for the SSL certificate to function properly.

SAN SSL Certificates

CUSTOMERS who have ordered a SAN SSL certificate, will receive an email asking for a CSR to validate the order. CUSTOMER must also list all alternate domain names to be covered by the certificate. The SAN must be determined prior to configuring the certificate and cannot be changed later. An additional fee is payable by the CUSTOMER depending on the number of desired SAN, before creating the certificate.

Technical Support

KEBECWEB is committed to providing bilingual technical support, at the earliest, 24 hours a day via the client area through support tickets. Telephone support is only available during opening hours. Support is always faster during office hours.

Bandwith

KEBECWEB does not impose bandwidth limits on CUSTOMERS. However, this does not mean that unlimited bandwidth is available to all CUSTOMERS. Users of a server share bandwidth. If a CUSTOMER's site uses a disproportionate amount of bandwidth, to the extent that a dedicated server is required, the CUSTOMER will be contacted by KEBECWEB. CUSTOMER websites will not be suspended nor will customers face additional charges for excessive bandwidth use. However, CUSTOMERS must comply with migration to dedicated hosting, if bandwidth use is such that KEBECWEB requires it.
