If you do not renew your domain before its expiry date, you will have up to 30 days (protected period) to renew the domain name at the original renewal fee. Please log into the client portal area to view renewal fees. After 30 days your domain will be suspended which means all services will stop and will go into a 60 day grace period which you can still renew your domain name (at no extra cost/but with an additional redemption fee of £75). If the domain name is not renewed, it will be cancelled and deleted from the register after 90 days and made available for resale through a third party registrar. will not guarantee the renewal of a domain name.

The Confidential Information shall not be passed on to Third Party and/or in any way be made use of at any time either during or after the termination of this Agreement, save with the prior written consent of the Party concerned or where the Confidential Information has already entered the public domain (otherwise than through the unauthorised disclosure by the other Party).

Money Back Guarantee

24host shall provide the Customer with a Money Back Guarantee on certain Services, in compliance with Distance Selling Regulations, in order to ensure Customer satisfaction. 24host shall not accept claims that fall outside the Money Back Guarantee Period, nor on products for which no Money Back Guarantee Period is offered.

Payments

A billing cycle is considered a calendar period, so "1 month" is not a consistent period of days. By purchasing a product with us, you confirm and acknowledge we are charging the same amount of money for different amounts of service. Our billing software uses the php date function's computation to figure out the next due date. We tell it to add a month and return the date, which we set as the Next Due Date. Due to the shorter length of February this can cause some unique behaviour which does not happen for the other 11 months of a year. With the above information in mind, renewal invoices are generated 7-14 days in advance and sent to your registered e-mail address. It is your responsibility to ensure this e-mail address is kept up to date and can receive emails from us. It is important that we receive payment on time. All services must be paid for by the due date shown on the invoice unless a written adjustment has been agreed. Failure to complete payment after this time will result in an automatic reminder when the invoice is overdue, and automatic account suspension should the invoice remain unpaid for more than 5 days. This applies to all hosting accounts. Domain names expire on the day immediately after their renewal date. As such we strongly recommend renewing a minimum of 48 hours before the expiration date. If an invoice is unpaid, the related service will be suspended until such time that payment is received and you inform us by email that you have paid. At this point we will use all reasonable endeavours to restore service within 24 hours. Unless otherwise stated, all payments must be received in UK Pounds sterling. If you pay by foreign bank transfer, then you must be responsible for all foreign currency charges. We reserve the right to alter our prices at any time and will notify you of any alteration by providing you with a written notice. Notice of any price alteration will be sent via e mail to the e mail address that we hold for you in our account. If you have already purchased a particular service then the price alteration will only become effective when the service reaches the end of its current term. You warrant that you are lawfully authorised to make payment using the payment card or facility you disclose to us. In the event where you are not the named cardholder, you acknowledge that you and the named cardholder both accept these terms and conditions and are jointly and severally liable for any payment(s) due. You hereby indemnify us in the event that the cardholder or issuer declines any transaction for payment, including our costs in recovering the outstanding amount due. If you attempt a chargeback or dispute a transaction with your bank, we reserve the right to suspend all services provided to you with immediate effect. Services will remain suspended and until such time as the chargeback has been fully reversed in our favour . Where offered, the Money Back Guarantee is limited to the cost of hosting and does not include costs incurred for any domain name(s)or Premium Domains registered for the Customer nor any Custom Work Order taken out during the Money Back Guarantee Period.

Save in respect of the Money Back Guarantee and the cancellation rights, Customers are not entitled to a refund, whether pro rata or otherwise, if they cancel this Agreement prior to the end of any Hosting Period.
