We do not make any guarantees regarding the availability, possibility, or time required to complete an account transfer.

In some cases we may not be able to assist you in a transfer of data from an old host. The free transfer service is available for thirty (30) days from your sign up date. Transfers outside of the thirty (30) day period will incur a charge; please contact a member of our Transfers department to receive a price quote.

If an account with a thirty (30) day money-back guarantee is purchased and then cancelled within the first thirty (30) days of the beginning of the term (the "Money-Back Guarantee Period"), you will, upon your written request to the HostFav Support Team (the "Refund Request") within sixty (60) days of such termination or cancellation ("Notice Period"), receive a full refund of all basic shared, VPS and reseller hosting fees previously paid by you to HostFav for the initial term ("Money-Back Guarantee Refund"); provided that such Money-Back Guarantee Refund shall be due to you only upon your compliance with, and subject in all respects to the terms and conditions of, this Section 13. Requests for these refunds must be made in writing to the HostFav Support Team. Refunds will only be issued for basic shared, VPS and reseller hosting services and will not include administrative fees, install fees for custom software or other setup fees, nor will they include any fees for any other additional services. Money Back Guarantee Refunds will not accrue, and shall not be paid under any circumstances, if you do not provide the applicable Refund Request within the Notice Period.
c. Refund Eligibility.
Only first-time accounts are eligible for a refund. For example, if you've had an account with us before, canceled and signed up again, or if you have opened a second account with us, you will not be eligible for a refund. Violations of this Agreement will waive your rights under the refund policy.
d. Non-refundable Products and Services.
There are no refunds on dedicated servers, administrative fees, and install fees for custom software. Please note that domain refunds will only be considered if the domain was ordered in conjunction with a hosting package and will be issued at HostFav's sole discretion. Any refunds issued for domain names will be reduced by the market value of the gTLD. Purchases of ccTLDs are non-refundable.
e. Cancellation Process.
You may terminate or cancel the Services by submitting a cancellation request from HostFav's customer portal. In such event:
(i) you shall be obligated to pay all fees and charges accrued prior to the effectiveness of such cancellation and
(ii) HostFav may, in our sole discretion, refund all pre-paid fees for basic hosting services for the full months remaining after the effectiveness of such cancellation (i.e. no partial month fees shall be refunded) less any setup fees, applicable taxes and any discount applied for prepayment, provided that you are not in breach of this Agreement.
Once we receive your cancellation form and have confirmed all necessary information with you via email, we will inform you in writing (typically email) that your account has been canceled. Your cancellation confirmation will contain a ticket/tracking number in the subject line for your reference and for verification purposes. You should immediately receive an automatic email with a tracking number stating that "Your request has been received...." HostFav will confirm your request and process your cancellation shortly thereafter.
If you do not hear back from us, or do not receive the automatic confirmation email within a few minutes after submitting your cancellation form, please contact us immediately via phone at: 1-877-646-5161 We require all cancellations to be done through the online form in order to
(a) confirm your identity,
(b) confirm in writing that you are prepared for all of your files and emails to be removed, and
(c) document the request. This process aims to reduce the likelihood of mistakes, fraudulent/malicious requests, and to ensure that you are aware that your files, emails, and account may be removed immediately and permanently after a cancellation request is processed.
Cancellations for shared and reseller accounts will be effective on the account's renewal date. Cancellations for dedicated and VPS accounts will be effective immediately.
Domain renewals are billed and renewed thirty (30) days before the renewal date. It is your responsibility to notify HostFav's Billing department via a support ticket created from https://www.hostfav.com/cp/submitticket.php to cancel any domain registration at least thirty (30) days prior to the renewal date. No refunds will be given once a domain is renewed. All domain registrations and renewals are final.
g. Foreign Currencies.
Exchange rate fluctuations for international payments are constant and unavoidable. All refunds are processed in U.S. dollars and will reflect the exchange rate in effect on the date of the refund. All refunds are subject to this fluctuation and HostFav is not responsible for any change in exchange rates between the time of payment and the time of refund.
HostFav may terminate your access to the Services, in whole or in part, without notice in the event that:
(i) you fail to pay any fees due;
(ii) you violate this Agreement;
(iii) your conduct may harm HostFav or others or cause HostFav or others to incur liability, as determined by HostFav in our sole discretion; or
(iv) as otherwise specified in this Agreement.
In such event, HostFav shall not refund to you any fees paid in advance of such termination, and you shall be obligated to pay all fees and charges accrued prior to the effectiveness of such termination. Additionally, HostFav may charge you for all fees due for the Services for the remaining portion of the then current term.

1. Shared hosting space may only be used for web files, active email and content of User Websites. Shared hosting space may not be used for storage (whether of media, emails, or other data), including, as offsite storage of electronic files, email or FTP hosts. HostFav expressly reserves the right to review every shared account for excessive usage of CPU, disk space and other resources that may be caused by a violation of this Agreement or the Acceptable Use Policy.

All support requests must be made by the reseller on its client's behalf for security purposes.

f. Resellers in the HostFav Reseller Program assume all responsibility for billing and technical support for each of the Users signed up by the reseller.
Shared accounts may not be used to resell web hosting to others. If you wish to resell hosting you must use a reseller account.
HostFav reserves the right to reset the password on a dedicated server if the password on file is not current so that we may do security audits as required by our datacenter. It is your responsibility to ensure that there is a valid email address and current root password on file for your dedicated server to prevent downtime from forced password resets. HostFav reserves the right to audit servers as needed and to perform administrative actions at the request of our datacenter. Dedicated servers are NOT backed up by us. It is your responsibility to maintain backups. Dedicated servers that have invoices outstanding for more than ten (10) days may be subject to deletion which will result in the loss of all data on the server. HostFav will not be liable for any loss of data resulting from such deletion.
HostFav reserves the right to change prices or any other charges at any time. We will provide you with at least thirty (30) days notice before charging you with any price change on any annual or longer term plans. It is your sole responsibility to periodically review billing information provided by HostFav through the user billing tool or through other methods of communication, including notices sent or posted by HostFav.
Discounts and coupon codes are reserved for first-time accounts or first-time customers only and may not be used towards the purchase of a domain registration unless otherwise specified. If you have previously signed up using a particular domain, you may not sign up again for that domain using another coupon at a later date. Any account found in violation of these policies will be reviewed by our Sales department and the appropriate charges will be added to the account. Coupon abuse will not be tolerated and may result in the suspension or termination of your account. All coupons and discounts are only valid towards the initial purchase and do not affect the renewal or recurring price.
You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless HostFav, our affiliates, and their respective officers, directors, employees and agents (each an "Indemnified Party" and, collectively, the "Indemnified Parties") from and against any and all claims, damages, losses, liabilities, suits, actions, demands, proceedings (whether legal or administrative), and expenses (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorney's fees) threatened, asserted, or filed by a third party against any of the Indemnified Parties arising out of or relating to (i) your use of the Services, (ii) any breach or violation by you of this Agreement; or (iii) any acts or omissions by you. The terms of this section shall survive any termination of this Agreement.
By using the Services, you hereby submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") in connection with any dispute relating to, concerning or arising out of this Agreement. The arbitration will be conducted before a single arbitrator chosen by HostFav and will be held at the AAA location chosen by HostFav in New York. Payment of all filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules, unless otherwise stated in this paragraph. In the event you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, HostFav will pay as much of your filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive. The arbitration before the AAA shall proceed solely on an individual basis without the right for any claims to be arbitrated on a class action basis or on bases involving claims brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of others. The Federal Arbitration Act, and not any state arbitration law, governs all arbitration under this paragraph. All decisions rendered by the arbitrator will be binding and final. The arbitrator's award is final and binding on all parties. The arbitrator's authority to resolve and make written awards is limited to claims between you and HostFav alone. Claims may not be joined or consolidated unless agreed to in writing by all parties. No arbitration award or decision will have any preclusive effect as to issues or claims in any dispute with anyone who is not a named party to the arbitration. If you initiate litigation or any other proceeding against HostFav in violation of this paragraph, you agree to pay HostFav's reasonable costs and attorneys' fees incurred in connection with our enforcement of this paragraph.
HostFav and User are independent contractors and nothing contained in this Agreement places HostFav and User in the relationship of principal and agent, partners or joint venturers. Neither party has, expressly or by implication, or may represent itself as having, any authority to make contracts or enter into any agreements in the name of the other party, or to obligate or bind the other party in any manner whatsoever.
Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement, the formation of this Agreement or the breach of this Agreement, including any claim based upon an alleged tort, shall be governed by the substantive laws of the State of New York. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to this Agreement.
HostFav shall not be responsible for any damages your business may suffer. HostFav makes no warranties of any kind, expressed or implied for the Services. HostFav disclaims any warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, including loss of data resulting from delays, delivery failures, wrong deliveries, and any and all service interruptions caused by HostFav or our employees.
Your use of the Services is at your sole risk. HostFav's backup service runs once a week and overwrites any of our previous backups. Only one week of backups are kept at a time. This service is provided only to shared and reseller accounts as a courtesy and may be modified or terminated at any time at HostFav's sole discretion. HostFav does not maintain backups of dedicated accounts. HostFav is not responsible for files and/or data residing on your account. You agree to take full responsibility for all files and data transferred and to maintain all appropriate backup of files and data stored on HostFav's servers. Any shared account using more than 20 gigs of disk space will be removed from our off site weekly backup with the exception of databases continuing to be backed up. All data will continue to be mirrored to a secondary drive to help protect against data loss in the event of a drive failure.

Neither party is liable for any default or delay in the performance of any of its obligations under this Agreement (other than failure to make payments when due) if such default or delay is caused, directly or indirectly, by forces beyond such party's reasonable control, including, without limitation, fire, flood, acts of God, labor disputes, accidents, acts of war or terrorism, interruptions of transportation or communications, supply shortages or the failure of any third party to perform any commitment relative to the production or delivery of any equipment or material required for such party to perform its obligations hereunder.
Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, nothing in this Agreement is intended, nor shall anything herein be construed to confer any rights in any person other than the parties hereto and their respective successors and permitted assigns.

HostFav takes intellectual property rights very seriously and it is our policy to respond to clear notices of alleged copyright infringement. This DMCA Policy ("DMCA") describes the information that should be
present in these notices and is incorporated by reference into HostFav's Terms and Conditions. It is designed to make submitting notices of alleged infringement to us as straightforward as possible while reducing
the number of notices that we receive that are fraudulent or difficult to verify. Unless otherwise stated, defined terms in this DMCA Policy have the meanings provided in the Terms of Service.
To file a notice of alleged infringement with us, you must provide a written notice that includes your full contact information and sets forth the items specified below. The full text of the DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) can be found at the following URL: www.copyright.gov.
The name, address, phone number, email address (if available) and physical or electronic signature of the copyright owner or a person authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf;
Identification of the copyrighted work(s);
Identification of the infringing material you are asking us to remove or disable, and the Internet location of the infringing material;
A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the disputed material is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or the law; and
A statement that the information in the complaint is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
Please email signed copy to email@example.com
Please note that you will be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys' fees) if you materially misrepresent that material is infringing your copyright. Accordingly, if you are not sure whether material available online infringes your copyright, we suggest that you first contact an attorney.
HostFav may respond to take-down notices by removing or disabling access to the allegedly infringing material and/or by terminating services. If we remove or disable access in response to such a notice, we will make a good-faith attempt to contact the Customer and/or administrator of the affected site or content.
HostFav may document notices of alleged infringement it receives and/or on which we action is taken. As with all legal notices, a copy of the notice may be made available to the public and sent to one or more third parties who may make it available to the public.
Upon receipt of notice from HostFav that a claim of infringement has been made and/or that the material has been removed or that access to it has been disabled, the Customer may provide a counter notice.
To be effective, a counter-notice must include ALL of the following information
A physical or electronic signature of the Customer;
Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled;
A statement under penalty of perjury that the Customer has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled; and
The Customer’s name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that the customer consents to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which the Customer is located, or if the Customer’s address is outside of the United States, the jurisdiction of the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts, and that the Customer will accept service of process from the complainant or the complainant’s agent.
Upon receiving a proper counter-notice, HostFav will take reasonable steps to restore the material in 10-14 business days unless the copyright owner commences court proceedings to prevent the restoration of the material and HostFav is informed of such proceedings.
This Service Level Agreement (SLA) covers our VPS Cloud Hosting and Managed Dedicated Servers.
This SLA clearly defines our responsibility as your provider and how service credit is provided should those responsibilities fail to be met. We take uptime extremely seriously and in trusting HostFav with your web requirements we strive to ensure you will never need to worry about your server.
HostFav guarantees 100% uptime for your server, this guarantee covers 3 key areas in the event of unscheduled service downtime.
Our network has been carefully engineered from the ground up to provide diverse N+1 redundancy at every point. Only premium bandwidth providers are used, as well as top of the range networking hardware. We guarantee 100% uptime on our network, which is defined as the connection from the network card on your server to the outbound port of the datacenter. Guarantee: We guarantee 100% network uptime. In the event of a network outage we will apply a 5% credit of the monthly service fee for every 30 minutes of downtime.
HostFav has fully redundant Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) systems as well as backup generators during utility power outages. Environment temperature is monitored and maintained by multiple air conditioning systems (full N+1 redundancy). Guarantee: We guarantee 100% infrastructure uptime. In the event of an infrastructure outage we will apply a 5% credit of the monthly service fee for every 30 minutes of downtime.
HostFav guarantees the functionality of all server hardware components and will replace any failed component at no cost to the client. Hardware is defined as the Processor(s), RAM, Hard Disk(s), Motherboard, NIC card, and other hardware component within a physical server. Guarantee: Hardware replacement will begin immediately upon identification of the hardware fault and is guaranteed to be complete within 2 hours of identification. We will apply a 5% credit of the monthly service fee for every 1 hour of additional time taken to replace failed hardware components.
SLA credit will not apply if the customer is in breach of any part of our terms of service, or we suspend the service or any part of it in accordance with those terms, e.g. suspension of service due to overdue invoices or abuse complaints.
HostFav can only be responsible for its network and not for general conditions on the Internet. Delays that occur outside HostFav's routers caused by ISP failures, congestion, interruption of or delay in transportation, unavailability of, interruption or delay in telecommunications, or third party services (including DNS propagation) resulting in degradation of service cannot be guaranteed by HostFav.
The time required to replace hardware does not include software re-installation and/or data recovery from backups (this recovery time frame depends entirely on the size of disk and amount of data involved).
SLA credit will not apply if the failure is due to a Force Majeure event; or the failure is due to a scheduled Service outage; or if the fault is not reported to us via the helpdesk with corresponding acknowledgement and ticket ID.
The maximum SLA credit that a customer can receive in any calendar month is an amount equal to 100% of the monthly service fee. Service Level Agreement claims are given in the form of credit to your account; this credit can then be offset against future service invoices or purchases. For the avoidance of doubt, the credit cannot be applied to any invoice already levied at the time we apply the credit to your account, and cannot be refunded as cash to a credit card, bank account or payment provider.
To receive an SLA credit please open a request via our helpdesk within 10 days of the outage. Please include a related ticket ID where you reported the fault to us, dates and times of unavailability, and any other information. Once a request has been verified we will credit your account within 30 days on your next invoice. Please ensure you have read and agreed to our Terms of Service which complement this SLA.
