PLEASE READ THIS FIRST: Technical Support agreement


The following document outlines the scope and limitation of support for each product that we offer.

Because web hosting service by nature relies on a combination of customer supplied client hardware and software and third-party products it is important to define what is supported by our company and what is the responsibility of the customer and/or third-party hardware and software vendors.

It is important for our customers to understand that when adghosting initially delivers a hosting service it has been pre-tested to be in 100% working condition.

We strongly encourage our customers to use our knowledge base resource and also the help menu in your aSQUARED software, to not only seek support, but also to become more familiar with our products and the extent of our support.

    • DNS zone file.
      DNS zone files translate your IP address to your domain name.  We will make sure to provide you with a zone file that will work for common web hosting uses such as www and mail when using aslan name servers. At any time you can revert to a default zone file should you mistakenly edit your own.
    • Operation of common services.
