Subscription and Cancellation Policies
An active subscription is required to use our hosting services. All customers receive a 14 day free trial where indicated, which can be extended on request at our discretion. However after this trial period all fees must be paid in advance.
If you wish to cancel your account you must do so before your renewal is due. Cancellations must be made via our dashboard of the customer portal of any appointed resellers. This will ensure your cancellation is handled in a timely fashion. A cancellation request via email will not be deemed proper and this will not cancel your subscription!
All payments for our hosting service are handled by FastSpring payments. They are the merchant of account & appointed reseller of our hosting products only. All payments for any other products and services, unless stated otherwise are not handled by FastSpring and are instead handled by us directly though the indicated payment processor e.g PayPal.
Refunds are available to all customers in their first month’s subscription for up to 30 days after initial registration, inclusive of any trial period. After this period once a payment is made it cannot be refunded except where there are clear extenuating circumstances.
Any upgrades to your subscription will be applied immediately, with the additional fees being billed on a pro-rata basis. Eg If you apply an upgrade amounting to an additional €100 per month half way through your billing period a charge of €50 will be applied immediately, while subsequent months will recur at €100 month in addition to your previous monthly subscription rate.
Any downgrades to your account will occur at the end of your current billing period. For instance, if you downgrade from €150 to €100 midway through a billing period you will receive no pro rata refund, but the next payment taken at the end of the billing period will be for the lower amount.
We accept card failures happen and will extend a 14 day grace period to allow you to replace expired cards etc in the event of an inability to pay. After this period your subscription will be canceled and your domains suspended, pending deletion. If you decided to reactivate your account after this period you will not be entitled to a free trial period and you will be charged the for 14 days unpaid hosting you received during the grace period.
Once an account is cancelled, your domains and all backups and any other relevant data will be deleted and it will not be recoverable by us. PBN Hosting SL accepts no reasonability for this loss of data in any way. Furthermore you agree not to hold us responsible for it.
30 day no quibble refund policy!
If you should not be happy with our services, we will refund you fully in the first 30 days of your service. Please read 4.7 onwards below for full terms and conditions on this refund policy.

We do not allow any of the following content to be published on any of our servers:
- Content of an illegal nature (including copyrighted material)
- Pirated software sites
- Hate sites or content that could be reasonably considered as slanderous or libellous
PBN Hosting SL representatives will decide upon content that is questionable regarding any of the aforementioned criteria. We may use automated systems to check web sites hosted on our Servers for content that breaches these guidelines.
Users posting any of the above content on their sites may have their services temporarily suspended. They will then be contacted by PBN Hosting SL and given the opportunity to remove the content in question before having their services reinstated. A repeated offense may cause cancellation of service without refund of any fees.

Heavy Usage of Non-US/EU Based CDN Points of Presence:
We expect that the majority of the traffic to your sites will come from the US and Europe. If your sites are using excessive bandwidth, or are using excessively high amounts of bandwidth from non-US/EU based CDN points of presence, we may request to change the CDN provider that you have chosen to one of our choice. Greater than 25% of non US/EU POP traffic constitutes excessive usage, and may result in us requesting to move your site to a different CDN provider.
Customers caught using our system for illegal activities, including but not limited to breaking into remote systems, credit card fraud, theft, vandalism, threats, or violence, will have their accounts immediately cancelled without refund of any fees.
Right To Refuse Service:

Excessive amounts is defined as any amount that results in substantial degradation of server performance. PBN Hosting SL is the sole determinant of what constitutes degraded server performance. On some occasions, we allow heavy usage depending on the situation. However, additional fees may apply
Fair Usage Policy:
Below you can read more about fair policy usage and additional terms & conditions of it. As we do not currently put general account limits on our packages e.g no bandwidth or disk space limits in general. We do operate a fair usage policy. In general we consider a PBN website that is more than a very generous 4GB in size, to not be too large for PBN Hosting. We will consider any website to outside our fair usage policy as we deem fit. Based on factors and figures that give us an average users disk space or bandwidth for example. If you are exceeding these averages by a higher amount than normal, we will consider this to be outside of our fair policy and will restrict your account or request additional payment as required. We reserve the right to add disk space or bandwidth limits to any account regardless if they have breached the fair usage policy or not. We can place this restriction at any time we deem it suitable to do so. We may place it for the such reasons as, but not limited to, being able to provide continuation of a competitive, professional service to our customers, or due to increased in costs & changing in pricing plans etc.
