      Hosting and must register by completing and submitting the registration
      form using a valid and unique e-mail address.
    2. Each Referral must enroll in a qualified hosting plan

      be up-to-date in all payments at the time the Referral Fees are processed.

    limited license to display Total Hosting banners, buttons and/or hypertext
    (collectively referred to as "Links") on your Web site, e-mail,
    newsletter and/or other promotional materials. Total Hosting grants you
    permission to download the Total Hosting Links for placement on your Web
    site, provided you adhere to the terms and conditions set forth in the
    Agreement.

You may
only use Links to Total Hosting on the Web site(s) that are listed in your
application and approved by Total Hosting. The maintenance of your site will be
your responsibility. The information on Total Hosting.com is frequently
updated, and you may need to update the content of your Links regularly to
maintain the accuracy of your site.

On
occasion, we may review your site to determine whether it is in compliance with
the terms and conditions of this Agreement. We will notify you of any changes
we feel should be made to ensure that your Links to Total Hosting are
appropriate.

If you do
not make the changes to your site that we feel are necessary, you may be
terminated from the Affiliate Program.
