RealPro provides web
hosting to clients worldwide, and we have a responsibility
to protect each client and to provide the best services
available. All clients of RealPro are subject to
the following terms of service:
At this time we bill either bi-annually or annually (6
months or a year). If you are not satisfied within your
first 30 days we would be happy to provide you with a full
refund. We accept Visa, Master Card and American Express.
We also accept checks and money orders. Please note that
we will setup your account and email your login
information upon receipt of payment.
For future billing, RealPro will send you a bill via email notifying
you of the amount due. At that time, we will automatically
debit your credit card for the amount due. If you paid
originally by check, we will provide you with the address
where payment needs to be sent. Should you desire to
update your credit card information, please fill out this form
and we would be glad to update our records.
clients are encouraged to pay by credit card as it is the
easiest way to handle payment at this time. However, if
you would like to pay some other way, please let us know
and we will do our best to accommodate you.
Accounts: Your email billing will notify
you of the due date for your payment. If payment is not
received by that due date, we will suspend your account.
We will then notify you of this via email. If we still do
not hear from you within two weeks we will automatically
delete your account from our servers.
If you know that you are
going on vacation (or will be away for an extended period
of time) and a billing cycle is approaching you need to notify
us in order to make other payment arrangements or pay
ahead of time. We will work with you, but we must be
notified or else you risk losing your account. With as many
accounts as we have, we would rather spend time helping clients with hosting issues or
adding new features to our services than chasing payments. So, please, make
every effort to submit payments in a timely manner.
Should your check payment
bounce, you will be charged a fee of $25 in addition to
your already existing balance.
When you need to cancel an account, please email email@example.com
and our billing representative will be in touch with you about reimbursement, if it is
applicable to your situation.
RealPro will send you
an email reminder one month prior to your hosting account
renewal date. Should you decide to stay with RealPro
for hosting, simply do nothing and we will continue to
bill you as normal. If you would like to cancel, please
reply to our email and let us know that you would like to
cancel. Should you decide to cancel
your hosting account after we have debited your credit
card for the next billing cycle there will be a penalty
fee of one month's hosting service deducted from your
refund. There are no exceptions.
