Responsibility for Payment
You agree to pay all fees and charges due for Services purchased or obtained from the Site as stated at the time you order the Domain and/or Service(s). Fees and charges are non-refundable unless otherwise expressly stated in writing, regardless of whether the Services are suspended, terminated, or transferred prior to the end of the term of the Service. Hosted.com may change or modify its fees and charges at any time without prior notice. These changes will be posted on the Site and will be effective immediately upon posting. If you have purchased or obtained Services for a specified period, changes or modifications in fees and charges shall be effective when the Services in question come up for renewal.
Failure to Renew
Accounts that have invoices which are more than fourteen (14) days overdue will be suspended. If a suspended account is to be reactivated, all of the overdue invoices will need to be paid to make it
current before the suspension is lifted. Accounts that have invoices more than two months overdue are considered abandoned and will be subject to termination.
All third-party fees, including domain registration and renewal fees, setup fees and migration fees, are non-refundable, non-negotiable, and excluded from our Money Back Guarantee. Further, SSL Certificates have a seven (7) day refund window from time of purchase.
Accounts that are terminated due to Terms of Service violations are not eligible for a refund or any service credits. Domain registrations and renewals, setup fees and migration fees are not refundable. Service credits have no cash value and are extended at our discretion.
All refunds are subject to the terms of service for any third-party payment processor and those terms take precedence over the terms in our Policies. In the event we are unable to refund any fees or charges via the method of payment, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to return or credit the appropriate funds to you.
If you paid us by credit card, we would credit the credit card on file. If you paid us through another payment processor, we would take steps to refund the appropriate fees through that payment processor. If the information we have on file for your account is not up to date, your refund may not be completed thus taking additional time to refund. If we are unable to return the funds, as described above, within three months of the date when the refund is due and owing then said funds shall escheat to Hosted.com.
Hosted.com is not responsible or liable for fees deducted from any refund processed.
