Astral Servers offers a thirty (30) day money- back guarantee for Astral Servers managed VPS hosting services only. Subject to the terms described in the Cancellations and Refunds section directly below, if you are not completely satisfied with these hosting services and you terminate your account within thirty (30) days of signing up for the Services, you will be given a full refund of the amount paid for hosting. This money-back guarantee only applies to fees paid for hosting services and does not apply to administrative fees, install fees for custom software or other setup fees, or to any fees for any other additional services.
CANCELLATIONS AND REFUNDS
No refunds will be provided if you use any of the following methods of payment: Bank wire transfers, Western Union payments, checks, and money orders.
If an account with a thirty (30) day money-back guarantee is purchased and then cancelled within the first thirty (30) days of the beginning of the term (the “Money-Back Guarantee Period”), you will, upon your written request to the Astral Servers Support Team (the “Refund Request”) within sixty (60) days of such termination or cancellation (“Notice Period”), receive a full or partial refund, VPS hosting fees previously paid by you to Astral Servers for the initial term (“Money-Back Guarantee Refund”); provided that such Money-Back Guarantee Refund shall be due to you only upon your compliance with, and subject in all respects to the terms and conditions of this Cancellations and Refunds sections. Requests for these refunds must be made in writing to the Astral Servers Support Team. Refunds will only be issued for our managed VPS plans and will not include administrative fees, install fees for custom software or other setup fees, nor will they include any fees for any other additional services. Money Back Guarantee Refunds will not accrue, and shall not be paid under any circumstances, if you do not provide the applicable Refund Request within the Notice Period. By accepting these Terms of Service, you agree that your refund amount will be left up to Astral Servers sole discretion.
Only first-time accounts are eligible for a refund. For example, if you’ve had an account with us before, canceled and signed up again, or if you have opened a second account with us, you will not be eligible for a refund. Violations of this Agreement will waive your rights under the refund policy.
There are no refunds on administrative fees and install fees for custom software. Please note that domain refunds will only be considered if the domain was ordered in conjunction with a hosting package and will be issued at Astral Servers sole discretion. Any refunds issued for domain names will be reduced by the market value of the gTLD. Purchases of ccTLDs are non-refundable.
You may terminate or cancel the Services by giving Astral Servers written notice via email or through our ticketing system. In such event: (i) you shall be obligated to pay all fees and charges accrued prior to the effectiveness of such cancellation and (ii) Astral Servers may, in our sole discretion, refund all pre-paid fees for basic hosting services for the full months remaining after the effectiveness of such cancellation (i.e. no partial month fees shall be refunded) less any setup fees, applicable taxes and any discount applied for prepayment, provided that you are not in breach of this Agreement.
Once we receive your cancellation form and have confirmed all necessary information with you via email, we will inform you in writing (typically email) that your account has been canceled. Your cancellation confirmation will contain a ticket/tracking number in the subject line for your reference and for verification purposes. Astral Servers will confirm your request and process your cancellation shortly thereafter. If you do not hear back from us, or do not receive the automatic confirmation email within a few minutes after submitting your cancellation form, please contact us immediately via email at: email@example.com
We require all cancellations to be done through writing and prefer use of the ticketing system in order to (a) confirm your identity, (b) confirm in writing that you are prepared for all of your files and emails to be removed, and (c) document the request. This process aims to reduce the likelihood of mistakes, fraudulent/malicious requests, and to ensure that you are aware that your files, emails, and account may be removed immediately and permanently after a cancellation request is processed.
Cancellations for VPS accounts will be effective immediately.
Domain renewals are billed and renewed thirty (30) days before the renewal date. It is your responsibility to notify Astral Servers support department via a support ticket created to cancel any domain registration at least thirty (30) days prior to the renewal date. No refunds will be given once a domain is renewed. All domain registrations and renewals are final.
Exchange rate fluctuations for international payments are constant and unavoidable. All refunds are processed in U.S. dollars and will reflect the exchange rate in effect on the date of the refund. All refunds are subject to this fluctuation and Astral Servers is not responsible for any change in exchange rates between the time of payment and the time of refund.
Astral Servers may terminate your access to the Services, in whole or in part, without notice in the event that: (i) you fail to pay any fees due; (ii) you violate this Agreement; (iii) your conduct may harm Astral Servers or others or cause Astral Servers or others to incur liability, as determined by Astral Servers in our sole discretion; or (iv) as otherwise specified in this Agreement. In such event, Astral Servers shall not refund to you any fees paid in advance of such termination, and you shall be obligated to pay all fees and charges accrued prior to the effectiveness of such termination. Additionally, Astral Servers may charge you for all fees due for the Services for the remaining portion of the then current term. Upon termination of the services for any reason, user content, user websites, and other data will be deleted.
