Premium Managed Hosting
Hosting is provided for one WordPress site, under both plans, and is subject to the terms of service of onRocket.com, LLC found at their website: https://rocket.net/terms-of-service. As our customer, you agree to be bound by the terms set by onRocket.com, LLC and further agree to hold Two Dot Marketing harmless for any damages or liability in regard to actions set by onRocket.com, LLC.
We utilize cloud based hosting technology, meaning your site is isolated into its own container of resources to increase the performance and security of your site. If your site is deemed to exceed resource limits we may suspend your website, and if your site continues to exceed resources a dedicated hosting plan may be required, which will incur additional costs that are not included in either of our care plans.
Hosting is not provided on an “unlimited” basis and we may set usage limits in any way we see fit, or as determined by our provider onRocket.com, LLC.
You may choose a hosting company of your choice if you wish, you will be responsible for communicating with that providers support in the event of an issue. Additionally, no discount will be provided for opting-out of our included hosting.
We will perform full site-wide back-ups of your website daily; it is required that your website be hosted with onRocket.com, LLC for this to occur. These back-ups are kept for a fourteen day period and then destroyed.
While there is rarely an issue during a back-up, we cannot be held reliable for damages if a back-up fails or an error occurs during recovery.
WordPress Updates & Monitoring
Our team manages plugin and WordPress updates regularly; certain updates may require further testing prior to acceptance to ensure maximum performance and uptime.
It is not recommended that you perform these updates without the direction of our team, as certain updates may cause your site to function improperly. In the event you or your designated agent updates the site without the express written permission by our support team, you may incur additional costs for any repairs necessary to bring your site back into proper working order.
Our partners at onRocket.com, LLC employ strict security standards and provide continuous malware scanning to ensure the reliability of the server and uptime of all sites. Similar to how antivirus works on computers, these threats may be removed and impact the functionality of your site. In the event you introduce malware onto the server, we may terminate your access and remove your site immediately.
We have spent a great deal of resources researching and optimizing plugins to work efficiently on client sites. Our team has a recommended list of plugins that we can help you install and troubleshoot. Plugins installed by you or your agent may not be covered under this care agreement.
We currently have developer licenses for a number of plugins which are provided at no additional cost to you during your enrollment in our care plan. At our discretion we may end the use of these licenses or limit there usage at any time.
If we do not hold a developer license you may be required to purchase a license which you will maintain full ownership of.
We use offsite, third-party verification systems to ensure your site is running 24/7. These systems let us know of any issue within minutes of your site going down so that we can investigate further.
This does not constitute as a guarantee of any specific level of uptime. Although rare, data centers can go down for reasons out of our control. We will make every effort to notify you of any planned downtime.
Website Change Support
Our team will aid you in the updating of content, images, etc. under this agreement; such updates will require opening a support ticket with detailed instructions on what is to be updated. It is required that you supply all the necessary components (text, images, etc.) required for the update.

Internet Corporation For Assigned Names And Numbers (ICANN) requires that contact information be filed and maintained for every domain name. We will ensure that your domain meets this compliance under our Elite Care Plan.
In order to manage all of these domains we use NameCheap as a registrar; therefore, to receive our domain management services we must transfer the domain to NameCheap. We can assign you as a manager to the domain if you request, upon cancellation of our services the domain can be transferred to any registrar of your choosing or to a personal NameCheap account.
The registered owner of the domain for registration purposes will be you, we will update the Administrative, Billing, and Technical contacts to our firm.
