If we find out about a reseller that is offering free or discounted memberships we will shut down the reseller's domain.
Resellers can write their ads anyway they wish as long as they represent the service in an honest way. If we find a reseller writing deceptive ads that could make a buyer believe they are getting something that they're not, there will be consiquences, to be determined by Five Star Services. Resellers can use the banner images we provide or they can make their own, if a reseller makes a banner it must be preapproved prior to use, simply contact us through our Help Desk and upload a copy of the banner you want approval for. If approved the banner will be placed on the reseller resources page for all resellers to use.
If a reseller wants to use the mailer then the reseller must purchase a membership from Five Star Services or from another reseller. Resellers can not create a free account for themselves. We do it that way to create a level playing field for all the resellers, all members must pay the minimum price of $48 per month or any sale price offered by Five Star Services.
If at any time a reseller that is paying monthly wants to upgrade to a lifetime reseller license and stop the monthly billing and pay the one-time fee contact us through our Help Desk. The same goes with a monthly reseller that wants to go on vacation mode or to stop all monthly payments completely and repoint their domain. Alll communications should go through our Help Desk.

If Mocha Host sends us a report that a reseller is sending unsolicited commercial email or not following the rules as set forth in the 2003 CAN-SPAM Act, then the reseller's domain will be cut loose from the server and access to the safelist submitter will be disconnected. Market smart or don't market at all. There are pleanty of legit ways to advertise and there is never any reason to send mail to someone who hasn't opted in to recieve it.
