Payment Policies, Fees, Refunds and Terms of Agreement:
Full payment is required before any hosting service is rendered, including renewals. All payment-due notices will be sent by electronic mail. No bills or invoices will be sent by postal mail or fax. Prepayment is due each anniversary (one month, three month, six month, one year, two years) following the date the account was established. Billing will continue until you cancel your hosting account. You may cancel at anytime. As a policy, we do not offer credits or refunds for hosting time already expended.
We do give refunds for full months unused, should you want to cancel prepaid service. If you decide to cancel after prepayment, you will not receive a refund for the current month in use (We do not give partial months refunds). If you have prepaid and received a multi-month discount, upon cancellation we will figure the refund retroactively withdrawing the discount back to the start date of the contract. This will result in paying full undiscounted price for the months used and refunding the balance. This only applies to cancellation by the client. If cancellation is done by webRulon Web Hosting due to restrictions violation, there will be no refund. webRulon Web Hosting will only allow for the discount if cancellation is not the fault of the client, as determined by webRulon Web Hosting. All monetary transactions are in $US dollars. Additional features can be added at any time. Monthly feature prices are not prorated. webRulon Web Hosting reserves the right to change prices at any time.
30 Day Money Back Guarantee
If within the first 30 days of service you are not satisfied with our service we will refund your first months payment.

Notification of cancellation must be received at least five business days prior to your cycle date, with the cycle date being the day of the month you sign up, in order to avoid charges in full for the next cycle. It is the Client’s Responsibility to secure email confirmation from webRulon Web Hosting that account has been cancelled. If the client has not yet received email confirmation of account cancellation, then the account remains active, and you will continue to be invoiced.
