    You shouldn’t, especially when there are other more credible, reliable and inexpensive solutions like Hostlegal.com.

    For more than a year, Hostlegal has saved newbie and veteran webhosters hundreds of dollars by providing its top quality Reseller Protection Kit (RPK).

    Our Reseller Protection Kit was designed by a veteran lawyer to protect you, the web host reseller. It includes Terms of Service, Acceptable Use Policy, and Privacy Policy templates at an unbelievable low price. In addition, you also receive FAQ, About/Contact US, Set Up/Order form templates.

    While you would pay a lawyer about $125 - $250 for one or more of these documents, you can buy all three - TOS, AUP, and PP - for just $34.99.

    These templates will be sent to you in a zip file and in MSWord and PDF file formats. They are easily edited with any text editor or word processing program and you will be up and running, and feeling safer.

    Are these templates really worth it? We think so. But don't take our word - take theirs (partial listing):

    "I bought a thing from Hostlegal, and I must say I am very happy with what I got for the price (get the whole package well worth it)..." Torith, Web Hosting Master

    "Hostlegal do offer a great service, my friend purchased the entire package a while ago and it's definitely great value for money. In todays age with more people signing up as frauds and scammers it's definitely something you need to address."
    - Talkfreelance, Web Hosting Master

    Okay. Although I know you're probably never going to come back here again, I'll bite just so others can see there are better options.

    Why would I want to pay you $34.95 for three documents when for a few dollars more, I can get the latest copy of "Broderbund Business Lawyer" which contains those documents plus a number of other documents that may be needed to run your business? In fact, you can also get the web design package as part of it. I think the newest version costs around $49. The documents are easily customizable plus you have the added help features to walk you through all the legal considerations.

    So, if say, I wanted to get the hosting templates plus the web design templates, that's 34.99 + 24.99 = $59.98. Ummmm... at that point wouldn't I be losing money along with the fact that there are other documents that may be needed and are provided by the software package?

    Remember now, that's the newest version. I have v2002 which is still good for what I need and it cost me about $29 new. If you go to Amazon.com you can find some good deals on software that is a version or two behind but still useful.

    Stephanie,

    Thank you for those great questions and excellent points. I will try to answer your questions in order and to the best of my ability.

    Why would I want to pay you $34.95 for three documents when for a few dollars more, I can get the latest copy of "Broderbund Business Lawyer" which contains those documents plus a number of other documents that may be needed to run your business?

    Our Reseller Protection Kit was designed exclusively for Web Host Resellers to meet their needs and concerns. It was prepared by a veteran technology lawyer, with over 12 years of experience in all aspects business law, including protection of intellectual property, drafting and negotiation of service contracts, drafting of standard terms and conditions for Web based services, and Web site legal compliance. Unfortunately, I have no idea who prepared the legal templates that are in the Broderbund Business Lawyer kit. It could have been first year law students. So, with our legal templates, you are making an investment in your business as well as receiving quality legal templates geared towards protecting you, the web host reseller. In addition, not only do you receive the three most important legal documents for any web host reseller, for just $34.99, you also receive FAQ, Set Up/Order Form, About/Contact Us templates as well.

    So, if say, I wanted to get the hosting templates plus the web design templates, that's 34.99 + 24.99 = $59.98. Ummmm... at that point wouldn't I be losing money along with the fact that there are other documents that may be needed and are provided by the software package?

    Excellent point. Again, I would have to respond similarly as I did above. However, in the next few weeks, we will be offering a special for both our Reseller Protection Kit and Webmaster/WebDesigner Protection Kit.


    Finally, we do offer generic legal forms with our Megaeforms Legal Kit (MLK), which contains more than 100 various legal documents. In the past, we have “bundled” MLK, with our Reseller Protection Kit free of charge. We will be offering that special in the near future.

    I hope I answered your questions and concerns. If not, please post again. And I promise I will respond.

    Once again, thank you for the excellent questions.

    ;) Decent answers and decent sales pitch, except for one thing. Never use probablies. If you don't know it as a certainty, don't use it.

    Stephanie,

    I do agree with you 100%. However, it is the "probablies" that makes life interesting sometimes.

    I appreciate your taking the time to share your questions and comments.

    Thank you.

    Life, yes, lol... but in sales? I don't think there's much room for probablies... people want to know you know what you're talking about.
