Account Cancellation, Money Back Guarantee, Refunds & Upgrades

Domain Registration: All domain fees are non-refundable once the domain has been registered/transferred/renewed. The registrant is totally responsible for any spelling mistake ccurred by him during the signup process. Once registered, the domain registration can not be reversed and Pak Servers will not be liable to refund the fees.

If you are not completely satisfied with our services within the first 15 days of your service, you will be given a full refund. In case a free domain is given with any package, the domain fee, equal to the fee mentioned on our website, would be deducted from the refund. After 15 days no refunds are provided. However, cancellation due to violation of the Terms of Service will waive the refund policy even within the first 15 days. In case of hosting package upgrades, you will be credited on a prorated basis of any unused time of the previous package. Your package would be upgraded once the difference in the new package fee and the old package credit is paid. The following methods of payments are non-refundable, and refunds will be posted as credit to the hosting account:

99.9% Uptime Guarantee

If your shared / reseller server has a physical downtime that is not within the 99.9% limit you may receive one month of credit on your account. Approval of the credit is at the discretion of Pak Servers dependant upon justification provided. Third party monitoring service reports may not be used for justification due to a variety of factors including the monitor's network capacity/transit availability. The uptime of the server is defined as the reported uptime from the operating system and the Apache Web Server which may differ from the uptime reported by other individual services. To request a credit, please contact the Sales Department with a valid justification.

For domain names, any domain(s) that are not paid within one month of registration/renewal are transferred in favor of Pak Servers. In such a case, the ownership of domain can be reclaimed by paying the ownership reclamation fee of amount up to 5 times the cost of registering a domain, which shall be decided upon by Pak Servers in its sole discretion. Pak Servers reserves the right to change their package pricing and any other charges at any time with or without any notice.

If the documents or fees are not submitted or the verification is not successful for some reason, Pak Servers is not obligated to restore your access to the domain name or hosting account.


Excessive Resource Usage

Each hosting account has an agreed amount of monthly bandwidth limit which varies depending on the hosting package you purchase. Bandwidth is the amount of data transmitted to and from your account (E-mail, Shell, Website, FTP). Pak Servers will make available the bandwidth utilization of each website via customer control panel. Should your account pass the allocated amount, Pak Servers reserves the right to suspend the account until the start of the next allocation or until either more bandwidth is purchased at an additional fee or you upgrade to a higher level of package.

Any web site that uses an excessively high amount of server resources including but not limited to CPU time and memory will be given an option of either upgrading their service level or reducing the resource used to an acceptable level. This policy is only implemented in extreme circumstances and is intended to prevent the misuse of our servers.
