Money Back Guarantee
Whilst the vast majority of IDWEB-HOSTING Customers will be perfectly satisfied with IDWEB-HOSTING service and remain with IDWEB-HOSTING for many years after ordering, IDWEB-HOSTING does recognize that on rare occasions, the agreement between the Customer and IDHOSTING will need to be canceled. IDWEB-HOSTING would encourage Customers to contact the customer services department in the first instance to ascertain if IDWEB-HOSTING can resolve any issue causing a Customer to consider canceling, but if the eventuality does arise, the IDWEB-HOSTING cancellation policy is as follows:

Customers may cancel their account at any time. Any Customer canceling their service will be entitled to request a pro-rata refund based on the months of unused hosting remaining.

Likewise, IDWEB-HOSTING reserves the right to cancel the service at any time. In this event, Customers again will be entitled to a pro-rata refund based upon the remaining months of membership. If a Customer contravenes IDWEB-HOSTING's terms of service a refund will not be issued in the event of a cancellation.

In the event of any refund, a US $20.00 administration charge is retained by IDWEB-HOSTING. In addition, the domain registrar cost is also retained by IDWEB-HOSTING to cover annual domain expenses if the domain was registered by IDWEB-HOSTING. Prices do vary depending on domain ending.

For example, a cancellation after 6 months service would generate a refund of the remaining 6 months service minus a US$20 administration fee and $12.95 to cover a .com, .net, .org, .biz, .us fee. Since we do register other types of domains, prices will vary.
