Account Setup / Email on file
We will setup your account after we have received payment and we and/or our payment partner(s) have screened the order(s) in case of fraud. It is your responsibility to provide us with an email address which is not @ the domain(s) you are signing up under. If there is ever an abuse issue or we need to contact you, the primary email address on file will be used for this purpose. It is your responsibility to ensure the email address on file is current or up to date at all times. Providing false contact information of any kind may result in the termination of your account.In high risk transactions, it will be necessary to provide government issued identification and possibly a scan of the credit card used for the purchase. If you fail to meet these requirements, the order may be considered fraudulent in nature and be denied.
OnGoingHost.com will make every effort to help you move your site to us, however, we can not make guarantees of the transfer process. We provide this as a courtesy service and can not make guarantees regarding its availability or the amount of time it may take as each host is configured a little differently. We will try our best, however, in some cases we may be unable to assist you in a transfer of data from an old host.

Money Back Guarantee
All hosting accounts have a full money back guarantee, upon cancellation within 30 days of payment, if the account holder is not satisfied for any reason. The amount refunded will be the dollar amount paid to OnGoingHost.com, by the account holder, and to the bank account, credit or debit card or Paypal account the payment was originally paid from. Domain registration fees are not refundable. If we register a domain name, on your behalf, as part of a free registration promotion, cancellation or termination of your hosting account will void the promotion offer and you will be charged $20 per registration years remaining on your domain name registration.
Only first-time accounts are eligible for a refund. For example, if you've had an account with us before, cancelled and signed up again, you will not be eligible for a refund or if you have opened a second account with us.**If the account holder cancel after 30 days from the date of account set-up, the account holder will not be refunded for any unused day(s)/week(s)/month(s)/year(s) that you have paid in advance for**.
Billing and Payment Cycles
If, at any time, a chargeback is issued through your credit card company, bank or Paypal (including Paypal disputes) we will immediately suspend all services listed on your billing account, including services not covered under the chargeback or dispute, and start collection efforts. These same terms apply to overdue invoices.
Services are invoiced approximately 14 days before your billing cycle ends, with several reminders sent until the account due date. Overdue invoices are charged a $10 late fee. Hosting accounts are suspended when they go 3 days past due and terminated 30 days past due.
OnGoingHost.com does NOT store credit card information and does NOT automatically charge you for services. You are responsible for logging into your Client Area to submit payment at the end of each billing cycle. Invoices are emailed, to the email address that you have on file with us in your Client Area, approximately 2 weeks before your billing cycle ends. We accept most major credit cards as well as Paypal and electronic check payment.
IMPORTANT: You can choose to pay your invoices with Paypal Subscription service. With a Paypal Subscription, you are telling Paypal to send us a certain amount of money on a certain date - UNTIL YOU TELL THEM TO STOP PAYING US. If you accidentally set up two Paypal Subscriptions, then Paypal will pay us twice. We have no way to "take" money from your Paypal account. If you accidentally overpay us via Paypal Subscription, you need to cancel your Paypal Subscriptions from within your Paypal account and contact us immediately. OnGoingHost.com will only refund ONE Paypal Subscription overpayment - all others will be credited to your billing account for future payments. If you cancel and still have Paypal Subscription credits left, you will lose those credits.
You are responsible for making sure that we have your current and correct contact information on file, by frequently logging into your billing account. We reserve the right to send announcements and invoices relating to your hosting No more than twice a month we may email you information on promotions or discounts relevant to services we offer. We ask that you not report these messages as spam to spamcop or any other similar service, because that makes more work for us and less benefits for other customers. Doing so may be considered grounds for termination of your account. OnGoingHost.com will NOT give your email address or any other contact information to any third party except under the direction of law enforcement officials.
We will make every reasonable attempt to avoid unexpected server downtime and to ensure that all hosting accounts are well taken care of.
