Under-constgruction-transparent.png UDWiki:Hosting Terms of Service is under construction.
It is either not completed or is about a subject or event which has yet to finish.
Feel free to check back later for an update in information.

Please do not cite this page as a reason why something is a problem. We have not worked out the details on how this would apply to us. Also, with the recent news stating that the Servers have been moved, things may have changed. Still on poundhost. Never mind about that part.

As all webpages, the Urban Dead Wiki is hosted on a server. The hosting service is provided by PoundHost and bought by Kevan. Kevan (and consequently the wiki) is bound by the PoundHost Terms of Service.
