Membership Features

Membership features are subject to change as the membership evolves.

Genealogy Website Builders facilitates the Guest Posting and Social Media Xchange.

Availability of the Guest Posting and Social Media Exchanges are dependent on the participation of multiple members. The nature of the exchanges means that participating members must be willing to provide content and host-guest content on a 1-for-1 level.

Discounts on published content apply to content published by Genealogy Website Builders or Evidentia software only. In some cases the full discount may not be applied if it drops the price below our wholesale cost.

The frequency of office hours is to be determined, dependent on member participation.

SiteGround.com offers a very reliable web hosting service. However, we cannot guarantee 100% uptime, and Genealogy Website Builders and Evidentia Software, LLC cannot be held liable for losses due to loss of website availability.

Hosting Service Offering

This offer is for hosting a single WordPress website on a shared account owned by Evidentia Software, LLC doing business as genealogy Website Builders, and hosted with SiteGround. 

This offer does NOT cover designing or building the WordPress site itself, beyond the initial installation.

As the service provider, Genealogy Website Builders agrees to provide sufficient resources for a reasonable level of website traffic to be agreed upon between the service provider and the website owner.  The service provider also agrees to act as intermediary between the website owner and the SiteGround to provide support of the hosting services being provided, as required by the SiteGround terms of service. The service provider also agrees to work with the website owner to effect a migration of the WordPress content should the website owner decide to cancel service with the service provider, unless the service is canceled within the first 14 days of service. The service provider agrees to retain the website for 14 days after cancellation to allow the website owner time to migrate their content unless the service is canceled within the first 14 days of service.

The website owner agrees to pay the monthly fee to Genealogy Website Builders.  The website owner also agrees that any required support requests will go thru the service provider and not directly with SiteGround.

Domain Name

The service provider agrees to provide the website owner with a domain name associate with the wp4genealogy.net domain.  For example, mythompsonfamily.wp4genealogy.net.  The service provider is not offering to provide a custom domain.

The website owner agrees to use the temporary domain name offered by the service provider, or lease their own custom domain from a domain registrar of their choice.

Refund and Cancellation Policy

The website owner may request a full refund within 14 days of the initial payment. No refund beyond the first 14 days is to be expected except where required by law.

After the first 14 days the website owner may cancel their account at any time, with no expectation of a refund of monthly fees already paid. The service provider will retain the website content for at least 14 days from the end of the last month paid in full. Any retention beyond 14 days must be negotiated with the service provider before the end of the 14 day period.

Privacy and Intellectual Property

The website owner retains all rights to posted content and all responsibility for compliance with copyright and trademark laws.  The website owner is responsible for protecting the privacy of their visitors, anonymous or otherwise.

The service provider agrees to protect the privacy of the website owner except where identity information is required by SiteGround. The service provider agrees not to use or share the website owners content or user data.
