All sub-networks, distributive hosting sites and dedicated servers of Deft Hosting must adhere to the above policies, with the exception of system resources in respect to dedicated servers.

Billing By the Account Activation Date of each month, Deft Hosting shall either:

(1) debit the client's credit card (when such information has been provided by the client); or

(2) deliver, by e-mail or regular mail, an invoice in accordance with the applicable Service Fees for services rendered for the current month. When an invoice is delivered to the client, payment shall be remitted to Deft Hosting by no later than the specified payment due date. Deft Hosting shall be entitled to immediately terminate this agreement for client's failure to make timely payments. You will be provided with an invoice on a monthly basis. All credit cards are billed automatically on a monthly basis. It is the client's responsibility to ensure that they have sufficient credit to cover this transaction. In the event that there is insufficient credit, we will send an e-mail notification, at which point we will need to be provided with another credit card account number within 24 hours. If we do not receive a response within 24 hours, the account, and all accounts under that account plan, will be suspended.

Service Fees Certain services carry a setup fee charged by Deft Hosting to client, which must be paid by client in order to have use of said services. If client terminates this agreement, client shall be responsible for any and all outstanding fees owed to Deft Hosting and agrees to pay any and all fees incurred by client. Because the services are provided on a monthly basis, the client will be responsible for service fees incurred each month, regardless of when client provides notice of termination. Thus, for example, if the client provides notice of termination on the 15th day of a particular month, the client will be responsible for service fees for the entire month, and such fees will not be pro-rated or refunded.

Money back guarantee & refund policy We do not generally refund cancelled contracts. For example, if your contract is quarterly and you request a refund after two months, no refunds will be admitted. No refunds are issued for setup charges, add-on charges, domain-registrations, add-on purchases, SSL certificates or overage charges. In case of AUP violations, any and all refunds are forfeit.

Account Deactivations Any account deactivated due to non-payment will be reactivated within 24-48 hours after payment is made

Cancellation Refunds We DO NOT refund partial monthly fees to accounts. We require 30 days notice for a cancellation.

Refusal of Service We reserve the right to refuse, cancel or suspend service, at our sole discretion.
