BWH performs nightly backups of shared and reseller servers; however, these backups are for BWH’s administrative purposes only, and are in NO WAY GUARANTEED! Customers are responsible for maintaining their own backups on their own personal computers. BWH does not provide any sort of compensation for lost or incomplete data in the event that backups do not function properly (even if the malfunction was due to negligence on BWH’s part). We will do our best to ensure complete and accurate backups, but assume no responsibility for this duty. Always back your site up to your personal computer! We make no guarantees about the availability of backups.
SPAMing, or the sending of unsolicited email, from a BWH server or using a return email address that is maintained on a BWH server is STRICTLY prohibited.

Help us STOP SPAM! Please email our abuse department immediately to report a violation of our SPAM policies.
At BWH, we always treat our customers with the utmost respect. In return, we expect the same from you.
