Domain registration data is completed by the Client on order and is automatically transmitted by our partner via API to the authority issuing .ro domains, RoTLD, without interfering with them in the booking and registration process.
On the basis of the ICI RoTLD judgment, the annual maintenance fee was introduced as of 1 March 2018. The right to use a domain shall be acquired after payment of the registration fee.

The total amount refunded will be equal to the total amount paid by the Client for the web hosting package, which is subtracted from the amount for domain registration, licenses, gratuities and the amount for each month in which Hanco provided the Client's services, without applying monthly discounts granted for prepayment. The amount returned is deducted from the Bank Fees and those for Card Payment Processing (if applicable). Payment of the amount returned minus commissions will be made as soon as possible from the date of receipt of the refund request.
Return cannot be offered in certain cases and for certain services. Payment for domain registration, licenses, discounts or other gratuities is not refundable. In case of refund request for web hosting packages the price of your domain, licenses, discounts or gratuities will be deducted from the total amount. This rule also applies to Clients who have received the domain free of charge, a license, discount or free of charge following a promotional offer.
Payment for domain registration cannot be returned from the moment the domain was registered, the domain is owned by the Client until the registration period expires.
Because special services such as VPS or Dedicated Servers have a high commissioning cost the payment cannot be refunded, the servers will remain in operation until the deadline expires.
12.2 Hanco service guarantee
In case of non-operation (downtime) of servers / services offered by Hanco for a duration of more than 3% of a month for Web Development and Hosting Clients, and 12% for Cybersecurity Solutions Clients, the Client is entitled to an additional free month of web hosting. The amount of compensation may not exceed the monthly or total amount paid by the Client for the hosting service. Compensation is only offered at the Client's request in the form of free hosting services provided in the form of months. The non-operation of hosting packages must be due to hardware or software related to Hanco Global Europa SRL equipment and infrastructure and does not apply to external factors such as: internet connections, electricity supplier, gas, use or special emergency cases ordered in the laws in force.
The refund guarantee does not apply if the Client does not comply with the terms of the Hanco Service Level Agreement (SLA).

15 Use of resources
Excessive resource consumption is prohibited for hosting packages.
To ensure the proper functioning of the services, the sites (the hosting account together with the web services) must fall within the following limits:
15.1 Personal/ Reseller Packages
- Maximum CPU consumption: 5%
- Maximum RAM consumption: 96M
- Maximum number of concurrent processes: 5
- Maximum Execution MySQL (query time): 5 sec
15.2 BusinessSite and SuperSite Packages
- Maximum CPU consumption: 10%
- Maximum RAM consumption: 192M
- Maximum number of concurrent processes: 10
- Maximum run MySQL (query time): 10 sec
All accounts are monitored to track resource consumption on the server. If an account uses an exceptionally large amount of resources, we will contact that Client to discuss it. If an account uses too much resources (memory, processor), the account may be suspended, or the script disabled without prior notification of the Client to keep the server running smoothly. In the framework of web hosting and reseller packages "Shared Hosting" will not be accepted in any way large users of resources. Hanco oversees compliance with the above by monitoring reports on resources used.
Clients can request that the package be improved or that the allocated resources be temporarily increased. It is the Client's responsibility to contact us in advance to request increased resources to avoid suspending the account. In some cases, accounts are automatically suspended when the allocated resource limit is reached, manual intervention on our part is required for reactivation.
15.2 Restrictions, limitations, and software updates
Hanco regularly updates the software/system programs running on servers, such as the Operating System, cPanel (including additional software), PHP, MySQL, FTP, Apache (Web Server), server mail and other packages, plug-ins, components to stable versions made available by the manufacturers of that software.
Under certain conditions it is possible that the Features and/or software and programs offered are permanently removed or replaced by others to cover security holes, design errors and ensure the safe operation of the servers.
We reserve the right to impose hardware and software restrictions on the use of Hanco services without any prior notice, in case of known security issues that may lead to server failure or operation of programs installed on the server, even if this leads to permanent blocking of permanent access to web hosting services.
If Hanco discovers, following server monitoring or referral, an account in which illegal activities or files that may be used for illegal activities are carried out, the services will be limited, blocked, or suspended. Hanco will notify the Client and send examples of files or software from inside the hosting account. Illegal activities are likely to be carried out by attackers/hackers speculating on the software used on the site or passwords saved on the computer.
The Client is primarily responsible for the updating of plug-ins and components through Admin Access, although Hanco may from time to time effect updates and upgrades to such plug-ins and components where the Client has not indicated this may be an issue due to any modifications, customisations or other features the Client has effectuated within their Client Site.
15.3 Automatic Anti Malware and Antivirus Protection
Hanco uses special software to detect malware attacks and infections. This specialised software performs constant scans on the accounts and activity in these accounts to prevent virus and malware infections.
Infected files identified will be automatically quarantined to ensure the protection of the account and third parties accessing the site in question. The likelihood of affecting the operation of infected sites is minimal, however, in certain situations, if important files (e.g. index.html) are infected it can lead to site malfunctions.
Clients are required to notify us immediately of any observed malfunctions to verify that this is due to malware infections. Under these conditions Hanco will provide the list of files quarantined from the Client that have already been quarantined or deleted by our server software, or for the Client cleaning them themselves.
Quarantine files are kept on the server for 30 days, after which they are automatically deleted by the system.
Forwarding mail (Forward) to certain providers of free mail services such as: Yahoo, Hotmail, GMail, etc. is given only with specific permission from your Site Administrator but are generally blocked on our servers. We reserve the right to block or delete any such redirection, due to the policy of these providers to block the IP of the server from which this kind of redirections are made.

15.6 Special conditions dedicated servers and vps
Payments made for VPS and Dedicated Servers are not returned.
Servers are offered without management; the Client is responsible for managing his own server.
The Client is responsible for back-up for existing data on VPS, Hanco does not provide server backup services and no guarantees regarding the integrity of existing data on the server.
Payment for VPS and Dedicated Servers services is made in advance. Payment for VPS and servers must be made by the end of the service by the end of the service at the latest. If payment is not made by this date the VPS or the server will be permanently closed and deleted, including all existing data on the VPS or server, it will no longer be recoverable after deletion.
The promotional VPS service is exclusively for companies; service is NOT available to individuals
The VPS service is intended exclusively for legitimate and legal activities (hosting websites, email, applications, etc.); it is forbidden to use the service for hosting game servers of any type, mirc applications, etc.; If you have any doubts about what you are going to host on the vps server, it is best to ask us before ordering this service.
The service will be suspended without notice if any form of cyber-attack, in particular flood attacks, is initiated from the VPS server.
The service will be suspended without notice if the VPS server receives flood-type cyber-attacks; Our assessment is that if the vps server was the target of such an attack, the reason for the attack is related to the applications run, which contravene this contract.
Technical support, updates to Site Content, and development and updates to Site Features are provided as "best effort" services. Hanco does not provide guarantees of response times, quality of work or suitability to purpose, nor to the resolution of requests to the support system.
16.1 Technical support is provided for:
- use of hosting services
- use of email services within the cPanel interface (we do not support email software settings (e.g. Outlook, Thunderbird, iPhone Mail, Android Email, etc.)
- use of Admin Access within WordPress so that Client may perform Content Updates
16.2 Technical support is NOT provided for:
- use of software purchase and maintained by the Client for sending emails
- checking and repairing site operation errors
- free software made available to Clients (e.g. SiteBuilder, Softaculous, etc.)
- Instructions for how to use common WordPress components such as page editors, settings and themes.
Clients are required to periodically save copies of the back-up (backup) of data stored in hosting packages on their own media. For this purpose, the cPanel software to which the Client has access ("cPanel Access") provides archive generating tools (including but not limited to "Softaculous" WordPress complete back-up and restore tool) containing data (files, emails, databases) and hosting package settings automatically or manually via FTP, PhpMyAdmin, or FileManager as of your preferences. Clients should ensure that they have enough space in the hosting package to generate backups, that they are downloaded to their own storage medium and that the saved data is integrated and usable.
Back-up services (backups of security and data protection) are implemented by Hanco on multiple storage media and restore points that may differ depending on the package or server. Physical protection of hard disks is provided by RAID, hosting accounts are saved weekly (the running range is depending on the type of package) on storage media dedicated to this by cpbackup (cPanel), on external storage servers through specialised software and an external backup that can only be used in cases of force majeure.
While we are constantly investing in technology and resources, we cannot provide any guarantee son about the proper operation of backup systems, the existence of backup data, or the integrity of data stored for backup purposes. Since in certain cases and conjunctures the data may be lost without the possibility of being recovered, Clients are required to make copies of the back-up/backup of the data on their own storage media.
Backup copies that can be used to recover data are generated periodically overnight through the cpbackup system (cPanel) and the dedicated back-up system and kept on dedicated storage media in multiple versions (restore points). Clients have access via CPanel to copies created to restore or download their back-up files.
On request, we try to provide Clients with archives of the hosting package kept on the backup hard drive, however we do not offer any guarantees related to the existence of data or the integrity of the data in the backup. Clients are required to periodically save copies of the security (backup) of data stored in hosting packages on their own media, using the tools available in the hosting packages.
Clients can request manual restore from the Hanco technical team up to 3 restores per month. Additional restorations performed by the technical team will be charged 15 euros + VAT on a restore.
After deleting the hosting account from the server Clients can request a possible back-up search on the disaster recovery solution. This will be provided if it is identified for a fee of 10% of the previous 2 months of invoices + VAT where applicable. If the Client opts to resume the hosting service, this fee will not be charged.

The Minor Content Update benefit does not accrue, and expires at the end of each calendar month regardless of client billing cycle. Due to the complexity, time required or any other reasons, Hanco may notify the client before, during or after the 30 minute period of Minor Content Update (and at any point within that calendar period), that completing the request will incur a fee as a major content update ("Major Content Update", below, and billed as such). For sites not originally designed by Hanco, or not substantially updated and modified by Hanco (at Hanco's discretion to determine the extent to which any Client site may qualify for this condition), Minor Content Updates and any associated offers are not available, valid, nor are they applicable.

Hanco will endeavour to effect such updates in a timely and effective manner and will provide the Client with an estimate of time required to complete the requested updates to Site Content prior to commencement of work. The Client will pay to Hanco the current Major Content Update hourly rate as published on the Hanco Site for the estimated time required. In the event that the initial estimated period is exceeded due to any unforeseen issue encountered in the process of performing those updates, Hanco will notify the Site Client of the current work status and a further estimate of remaining time required.

If, due to the complexity, time required for alternate solutions or any other reasons, Hanco requires additional plug-ins, components or other tools, Hanco will notify the Client of such exigencies. The Client may at that time opt to cancel the Feature, agree to additional estimated expenses required to complete the Feature, or modify requirements to suit existing developed capabilities of the Feature at that time.
126.96.36.199 Feature Updates: The client may request Feature Updates for existing Site Features previously developed by Hanco at any time (billed as "Feature Update"), and any such request forms an Order. Hanco will endeavour to effect such updates in a timely and effective manner and will provide the Client with an estimate of time required to complete the requested updates to Site Feature prior to commencement of work.
The Client will pay to Hanco the current Feature Update hourly rate as published on the Hanco Site for the estimated time required. In the event that the initial estimated period is exceeded due to any unforeseen issue encountered in the process of performing those updates, Hanco will notify the Client of the current work status and a further estimate of remaining time required. At that point the Client may opt to discontinue with further Feature Update work where most requirements have been met, or in the case the Feature would not be usable or less than half of the requirements have been fulfilled, Hanco will not charge for (or in the case that payment has been made by the Client specifically for the Feature Update, will refund payments made for) the Feature.
17.5 Feature Instruction
Feature Instruction: The client may request Feature Instruction for primary administrators of the Client Site ("Admins") developed by Hanco at any time (billed as "Feature Instruction"), and any such request forms an Order.
17.5.1 Provision of Feature Instruction: Feature Instruction may be given by any Messaging, including Zoom, or other medium whereby screen sharing, video and audio are all available to all participants in the session.

The Client will pay to Hanco the current Feature Instruction hourly rate as published on the Hanco Site for the actual time required by Hanco to instruct Admins. At any point during the instruction, Client may opt to discontinue with further Feature Instruction. All Feature Instruction fees are non-refundable.
17.5.2 Feature Instruction for Admins is intended only to supplement the existing help documentation included with the Site Feature by the third-party vendor, or where Hanco has authored substantial portions of the Site Feature, help documentation provided by Hanco. Hanco will endeavour to effect such instructions in a manner and at times convenient for Admins and will endeavour on a "best-effort" basis to limit the time required for Admins to effectively learn how to operate, administrate and perform Content Updates using Site Features.
17.5.3 Feature Instruction for Groups is intended to familiarise novice users with the main components of a Site Feature, and is intended to supplement the instruction given by Admins to those users. Where Admins wish to extend instruction to a group of staff, users or any other persons designated by the Admin(s) to receive Feature Instruction, Client will pay an additional 25% of the published hourly Feature Instruction rate per attendee.
17.5.4 Included Feature Instruction: Some Site Development packages may include either set units of instruction (expressed in a maximum number of Site Instruction hours that are included) for a Site Feature ("Feature Unit Instruction"). Any Feature Instruction beyond the included units/hours will be billed at the hourly Site Feature Instruction rate as published on the Hanco website at the time the additional instruction occurs.
