Terms of Service : Magento hosting


Our Magento hosting has been specifically tailored to offer the best value Magetno specific hosting environment possible.

Our shared hosting packages are for the specific application as purchased eg Wordpress, Magento. Each package is for a single installation of that application. No additional content is to be installed without seeking consent.



Our magento web servers are not intended to be used for email purposes above and beyond the normal transactional email produced and delivered by magento. The web servers will not be used to send any other email.  We are happy to provide 3rd party email services for all our clients either free or as part of a value added service.


If you are not sure if your actions will be in violation, please ask first: info@dx3webs.com.



In the case of your site exceeding the bandwidth limit in any given month we will; 1) seek to further optimize your site to reduce bandwidth use, 2) remove the limit for the current month, 3) report back to you at the end of the following month on your bandwidth after our changes. Should your site still exceed the bandwidth limit of your chosen package you will either agree to update to a new package or be charged 0.35p per gigabyte for excessive bandwidth use.


PCI Compliance

Our shared hosting solutions are not and cannot pass PCI scans. Therefore are not suitable for some payment methods, notably, Paypal Pro or Sagepay via Direct integration. You can use payment methods where payments are taken 'off server' eg Paypal standard, Paypal express, Sagepay via Form or Server integration. We are happy to configure VPS and dedicated servers to pass PCI scans.

Under no circumstances are any payment method that store Credit Card details direct on the server to be used without consulting us directly. Similarly API based payment methods eg Sagepay via Direct integration are almost certainly beyond your PCI scope and so are not supported.
