The purpose of this chargeback policy is to recover operating expenses incurred from protecting the company’s financial well-being from those individuals who would take financial advantage
of our services instead of utilizing our easy refund policy.
What is a chargeback?
When a bank forcibly reverses a credit card transaction, returning funds to the cardholder, it is known as a chargeback. Consumers may request a chargeback for nearly any reason. As a result,
it is possible to commit "friendly fraud": a credit card industry term used to describe a consumer who makes an Internet purchase with his/her own credit card and then issues a chargeback through
his/her card provider after receiving the goods or services.
How does Host-99 handle chargebacks?
Host-99 considers chargebacks and any kind of disputes through payment processors to be fraud if a customer has made no reasonable effort to work with us to resolve any problems with a purchase. In
other words, we expect our customers to follow our refund policy instead of issuing a chargeback or opening a dispute, and chargebacks/disputes are always considered to be fraud. Fraudulent chargebacks
may be turned over to a law enforcement or collection agency.
What happens while a chargeback is being processed?
We will suspend the account temporarily until the charge-back is resolved. If the resolution is not in our favor we will immediately terminate the account. Once termination has been activated we turn over the
charge-back to a collection agency. Host-99 is a recognized and certified web host provider. We supply all services to their fullest when the service is active. If you have any questions regarding this policy
you may contact us at 1-800-762-2365 or by email to one of our Billing specialists.
Since fraudulent purchases are often associated with malware and phishing, immediate termination of all services related to the charge-back is required to prevent possible damage. When Host-99
receives a charge-back notice, the account in which the service was purchased is immediately blocked, and all related services in the account are terminated. Please, be advised, that a customer must
reverse the charge-back in order to restore a blocked account. This returns the initial funds to us, cancels the penalty fee we receive for "allowing" fraud to be committed, and generally erases
any "black marks" against us for the transaction. We do not accept additional payment for services on a different card.
All charge-backs not only cost our employees time away from our usual and customary matters of conducting normal business, but cost us money. Therefore, you agree that if you, the buyer, choose to
do business with Host-99, and you issue a charge-back, and you do not win the charge-back argument, you agree to pay us $35.00 for our time responding to the matter. You, the buyer, authorize us to
charge this amount to your account balance or credit card after the processing has been completed.
How do I cancel a charge-back or dispute?
To cancel a charge-back, you must contact your credit card provider and issue a charge-back reversal. To cancel an open dispute you must contact the online payment processor and close your dispute.
The following services and products including custom ordered services are absolutely not refundable for any reason:
Web Development (Of Any Kind)
ALL Dedicated Servers (Single Machines)
Web Design (Of Any Kind)
Domain Registrations or Transfers
