YoHost FAQ: General Pre-Sales Questions
Can I be sure that the two-week trial period is really free?
| || Except for domain registration fees if applicable,
you will not be charged for your first two weeks.
When you go through the signup process,
the schedule of charges will be shown very clearly
before you are asked for any credit card information.
Can I open a free trial account without entering my payment information?
| || Yes, you may open a free trial account if you are seriously
considering purchasing hosting services from YoHost.
To show that you're a legitimate prospective customer, please do the following:
(1) use this link to sign up for your account,
(2) select "decide later" as the payment method,
(3) register your domain before ordering hosting services, and
(4) sign up using the same email address that appears in the public WhoIs information for your domain.
(5) provide a valid phone number that we can call to confirm your order
If I ask YoHost to register my domain, can I still change to another hosting
company in the unlikely event that I'm not satisfied with your service?
| || Yes, just provide your new nameserver information, and we'll make the change for you.
Alternatively, you can transfer the domain to another registration service.
What forms of payment do you accept?
| || YoHost accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and PayPal
for annual, quarterly, or monthly payments. Checks and money orders can be used for
What name will appear on my credit card statement?
| || Credit card payments will be clearly identified as YoHost.com.
If I pay monthly, when will I be charged?
| || Credit card and PayPal payments are collected in advance, on or near the first day of each month. Your first payment
will be processed at least two weeks after you sign up, and is typically a prorated amount for a partial month of service.
The charges and dates will be clearly displayed when you go through the signup process. (In some cases the actual charges
are delayed past the date indicated, but they will never be earlier unless requested by you.)
If I cancel my account, will I receive a refund for unused service?
| || Yes, a prorated refund will be issued upon request.
If you paid for a year of service, your "free month"
would be forfeited. Example: You paid $110 for one year on Plan A, and you cancel after 8.3 months. Your first
two weeks were free, so your total charge is ($10/month) * (7.8 months) = $78. Your refund is $32.
