Last Updated:

May 05, 2022

PLEASE READ THESE TERMS OF SERVICE CAREFULLY.

Nabtech Digitalnet Limited offers a range of services to customers, encompassing hosting and website solutions. These include shared, VPS, and dedicated hosting, WordPress hosting, software licenses, email, cloud services, and domain registration services, among others. Collectively, these are referred to as "Services."

By utilizing Nabtech's Services, you acknowledge and agree to abide by these Terms of Service and any other policies or terms referenced or published by us (collectively, the "Terms"). If you do not agree to these Terms, please refrain from registering an account or accessing, purchasing, or using Nabtech's Services in any way.

These Terms constitute a legally binding agreement between Nabtech and any individual or organization that acquires, accesses, or utilizes Nabtech's Services (referred to as "Customer" or "You"). You represent and warrant that (a) you possess the full authority and capability to enter into and fulfill these Terms, or (b) if you are using these Services on behalf of an organization, entity, or group, you have the authorization to accept these Terms.

Financial Arrangements

  1. 1. You agree to a minimum thirty (30) day contract, commencing upon the initiation of service. The specific contract duration is determined during signup.
  2. 2. You acknowledge that you are solely responsible for all charges and fees associated with your account.
  3. 3. If you wish to terminate Nabtech shared Web Hosting services within 30 days of the initial signup, you may do so for any reason (except for disablement due to Terms of Service or Spam Policy violations) and receive a prompt refund.
  4. 4. Services provided by third parties and Nabtech partners do not fall under the 30-day refund policy, and no early termination credit applies. Billing ceases at the end of the term during which the service is canceled.
  5. 5. AUTOMATIC RENEWAL: Upon the conclusion of the contract term, it will automatically renew at the prevailing non-promotional rate for the original contract duration, continuing indefinitely until canceled.

Nabtech will automatically renew the applicable service when it comes up for renewal and will process payment using the payment method linked to your account. If you prefer not to have any service automatically renewed, you can opt to cancel that service. In such a case, your Services will terminate upon the expiration of the current term, unless you manually renew them before that date. To prevent automatic renewals, you must cancel your Services before their renewal date(s). Renewal dates become effective at midnight, GMT.

If your payment card is deemed expired, invalid, or otherwise unchargeable, you consent to Nabtech utilizing alternative payment methods associated with your bank account, such as new credit card details provided by your card issuer. If a shared hosting service is terminated after the 30-day money-back guarantee period, the service will be canceled before the next payment is due, and no further billing will occur, with no refunds provided, even for unused portions. Any non-refundable charges that have already been incurred must be settled before the account can be canceled.

You can initiate the cancellation process by accessing the Manage Account panel page. Detailed and current cancellation instructions can be found on the website.



6. The "30-Day Money-Back Guarantee" offer is only applicable to credit card payments for shared web hosting. Other forms of payment are non-refundable. Refunds can only be processed for shared hosting. Domain registrations (including the value of any used free domain registrations included with the plan) are not refundable under any circumstances. SSL certificates are non-refundable. The value of any AdWords credit or other third-party add-ons is non-refundable.

Refund Policy

To qualify for a refund, you must first cancel the service for which you seek a refund. Refunds can only be issued for concrete, specified issues that we are unable to resolve. The policy aims to ensure that requests for refunds are substantiated by legitimate dissatisfaction, unmet service needs, or unresolved issues. Cancellations can be made by:

  • Sending an email to the Nabtech Billing Department at [email protected]
  • Opening a support ticket from your Nabtech Client Area

Each service has its own refund eligibility period, outlined below.

General Terms for All Services

  • Terms of Service Violation: If your service is suspended due to a breach of Nabtech’s Terms of Service, you will not qualify for a refund.
  • Service Downgrades: Downgrading your service package does not make you eligible for a refund.
