SITESTAR TRIES TO COLLECT HOSTING CHARGES FOR WEBSITES THEY NO LONGER HOST.

THEY CLAIM ALL THEIR CUSTOMERS ARE BOUND TO THIS UNSIGNED, UNACKNOWLEDGED AND UNENFORCEABLE SERVICE AGREEMENT WHICH IS THE MOST UNETHICAL PIECE OF CRAP EVER WRITTEN, as shown below ....

SITESTAR WRITES:

These are our WEB HOSTING TERMS AND CONDITIONS

1.0 HOSTING AGREEMENT
1.1 - Customer's use of Sitestar's facilities to host a website for Customer shall constitute Customer's acceptance of the terms and conditions in this Webhosting Agreement (Agreement). The terms "you" or "your" shall refer to Customer.

2.1 - The initial and minimum service period for dedicated Sitestar Inc.
(Sitestar) hosting service is 12 months from the effective date.
2.2 - Customer may terminate this Agreement for convenience 90 days after giving Sitestar signed, written notice. In the event of such termination, Customer will pay Sitestar 75% of the applicable monthly minimum amounts for each remaining month of the then current term of this Agreement, in addition to paying any amounts due and owing as of the effective date of termination.
2.3 - If Customer terminates this Sitestar Agreement because:
(A) Customer commits to a higher speed service access with Sitestar, or
(B) Customer commits to a longer-term service term with Sitestar, then the termination fee in 2.2 does not apply. For (A) or (B), this Agreement will be superseded by the new service agreement.
