Description of Services:
AJKservers provides the Services to its customers for a monthly fee. AJKservers will provide You an account on one or more of its dedicated servers, provided, however, You abide by the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement and in any other agreement pertaining to other services you may purchase. AJKservers reserves the right to modify its network and facilities used to provide the Services for purposes including, but not limited to, accommodating evolving technology and increased network demand, and providing enhanced services. AJKservers shall use reasonable efforts to notify You in advance of any planned changes to AJKservers's network or facilities that may adversely affect the Services provided under this Agreement.
Fees for Services ordered by You shall be charged beginning on the date of the initial order and that date shall serve as the monthly anniversary date for all future billings including one time fees, upgrades, additional services, cancellations and service credits. Fees are due in advance of the monthly service cycle and will be billed on the anniversary date of each month.
From time to time it may be necessary to make adjustments in the fees and surcharges charged for the Services in order to cover certain changing costs (e.g., power) incurred by AJKservers in providing the services. Such adjustments will be reflected on the statement or invoice provided to you for the Services, and you agree to pay for the fees and surcharges for the Services, as adjusted.
- Credit Card on File. When you place a credit card on file with AJKservers, we will, typically, bill the card a few days before your invoice is due.

If your invoice becomes more than 1-days past due (from the invoice Due Date) then AJKservers reserves the right to suspend service or terminate service after 2 days past due until payment is received.
