Policies, Refunds and Service Guidelines

We provide web hosting and site design to many clients and we have a responsibility to protect each client and provide the best services available. The following guidelines were designed to insure these services.

Hosting:
All Website Hosting fees are due before the first of every month (on a tri-monthly or yearly payment plan the first of the respective months) Any fees not paid after the due date will be subject to removal from the server with a $50 fee to reactivate the site on the server. This also includes Email service if it directly applies to said account.

Site Design, Site Maintenance:
All fees incurred for Web design or website maintenance are to be paid in full within 30 days of receiving the final invoice. Any fees not paid within those 30 days will be subject to removal from the server with a $50 fee to activate the site to the server.

Invoicing:
Invoices that state 'due on receipt' must be paid within 7 days to ensure no disruption in services. This shows good faith for both parties and promotes an honest strong working relationship for future business dealings.

Refunds:
Our payment policy is fair to both us and our customers. We strive to provide high-quality service, and work hard to ensure that you receive value for your hosting dollar. Our payment policy is designed to minimize our time and effort collecting bad debts and chasing after delinquent accounts. This allows us to put our effort where it counts: providing services to our paying customers.

Hosting contracts will be refunded if notification is received within the first 6 days after the renewal date. No refunds will be granted for notifications received after this date.
