You accept that by doing this, Whogohost has provided you with sufficient notice of the variation to its Refund Policy. Your continued use of our Website will be deemed as acceptance of the varied terms by you.

General Refund Process
  • Service(s) must be cancelled before a refund can be issued
  • You will not be entitled to a refund if your domain name has been flagged as suspicious, is considered to be registered for improper use, or is registered in breach of our Terms of Service.
  • You will not be entitled to a refund if your service is suspended or terminated as a result of a breach of our Terms of Service.
  • All eligible refunds will be automatically credited to your client account with Whogohost, unless you specifically request for a cash refund. Money refunded into your client account can be used at a later date to pay for other products and services. You can view your credit balance by logging into your client account and going to the "Available credit" section on your client area dashboard.
  • If you have requested for a cash refund, Whogohost will only give such refund where the account details you have provided for the refund are an exact match with that from which we received your payment. In event of any discrepancy in the account details, eligible refund will only be made into your client account.
  • Requests for cash refunds will be processed and completed within a minimum of 15 days and maximum of 30 days from the date of request. All cash refund requests are subject to an administrative fee which will be deducted from the amount to be refunded to you. In the event that the amount to be refunded is less than the administrative fee i.e bank charges, you will only be entitled to a refund into your client account.
  • Unless you specifically request for a cash refund, purchases made via any online payment gateway processor i.e Quickteller, Cashenvoy, AmplifyPay, Paypal etc may be refundable via the source of payment and WhoGoHost is not responsible for any additional charges imposed by the online payment processing company.
  • On no account will the same product or service be entitled to a refund more than once.
  • You will not be entitled to a refund if the product or service was purchased during a promotion or at a reduced fee.
Overpayment

If we become aware that you have overpaid for any product or service, we will automatically credit the amount of that overpayment to your Whogohost account where you can use it to pay for other products or services at a later date. You will be able to see this credit by logging into your account and going to the Available credit section on your client area dashboard.

If you wish for an overpayment to be refunded to your bank account, you must send a request for refund to billing@whogohost.com The request must give required details including the invoice number for which the overpayment was made, date of payment, method of payment (including, where applicable, bank details from which payment was made) and amount of overpayment.
