ChemiCloud performs nightly backups of Shared Hosting, Reseller Hosting, and WordPress hosting accounts; however, these backups are for ChemiCloud’s administrative purposes only, and are in NO WAY GUARANTEED! Customers are responsible for maintaining their own backups on their own personal computers. ChemiCloud does not provide any sort of compensation for lost or incomplete data in the event that backups do not function properly (even if the malfunction was due to negligence on ChemiCloud’s part). We will do our best to ensure complete and accurate backups, but assume no responsibility for this duty. Always back your site up to your personal computer! We make no guarantees about the availability of backups.
Our primary backup system relies solely on JetBackup. We do not utilize the default cPanel backup system for the purpose of generating account backups. You have the privilege to generate a manual backup of your entire account at any given time through JetBackup. Should you wish our team to manually generate a cPanel backup, be advised that such requests will incur a fee. Before initiating such a request, we recommend consulting with our Billing department to obtain a precise price quote.
You may not use your hosting account as a backup solution. Our Services are designed to host your website only and may not be used as a data repository. ChemiCloud reserves the right to remove backups from your
hosting account with or without notice.
We may also delete the following types of files if we find them to be using excessive amounts of disk space, especially if affecting other customers: (i) cPanel or other backups stored locally, (ii) Softaculous backups stored locally, (iii) Softaculous backup temp files, (iv) Common CMS backups stored locally, (v) Common CMS backup temp files, (vi) Common CMS backup logs, (vii) excessively sized error logs, and (viii) any other large files deemed unnecessary for core website functionality or not containing any valuable data. cPanel generated backups stored on the server will be automatically deleted after fourteen (14) days.
While our Backups system supports almost any characters for filenames (UTF-8), there are special characters/symbols that are generally best avoided as there are specific limitations across various filesystems and storage destinations that can cause unintended issues with your backups. This list is not exhaustive and is meant to help determine and avoid errors regarding filenames and your backups.
While our Backups system generally performs backups for any files or folders, there are exceptions of files and folders that are excluded as there are specific limitations across various filesystems and storage destinations that can cause unintended issues with your backups. This list is not exhaustive and is meant to help avoid errors regarding your backups.
SPAMing, or the sending of unsolicited email, from a ChemiCloud server or using a return email address that is maintained on a ChemiCloud server, is STRICTLY prohibited. Using SPAM to advertise a site hosted on ChemiCloud’s network also constitutes as a violation of this provision. ChemiCloud will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision. Sites found to be in violation of our SPAM policies will be immediately deactivated.
For anyone intentionally spamming on our systems, we reserve the right to bill them at a rate of $90/hour for any cleanup, research, and related work from their illegal activities.
Help us STOP SPAM! Please email our abuse department immediately to report a violation of our SPAM policies.
At ChemiCloud, we always treat our customers with the utmost respect. In return, we expect the same from you. If our staff feels that you are consistently addressing them in a demeaning or rude manner, your account may be suspended and you may be asked to take your business elsewhere. In the event that we terminate service for support abuse, customers will be given ten (10) days notice to find a new host.
ChemiCloud will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision. Accounts found in violation of this provision will be subject to immediate account deactivation. ChemiCloud will turn all available information about abuse incidents, including customer contact data, over to the proper authorities and press charges.
Our Billing department processes cancellations. A cancellation request must be submitted via the client area to cancel an account. Once we receive your cancellation request, our Billing department will confirm your request and process your cancellation shortly thereafter.
We require all cancellations to be requested through the cancellation form inside your client area 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. 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.
You must fill out a cancellation request form when you decide to cancel your hosting service. This form helps us understand why you are leaving and ensures smooth cancellation.
In the form, you will be asked to:
1) Describe the Reason for Cancellation: Share your reasons for canceling the service.
2) Choose the Cancellation Type: Select one of the two types of cancellation:
Immediate Cancellation: If you choose this option, your hosting service will be canceled automatically when our system updates at 9 AM Eastern Standard Time (EST) daily. For example, if you submit your cancellation request at 8 AM EST, your service will end on the same day at 9 AM EST. However, if you submit your cancellation request after 9 AM EST, your service will end the next day at 9 AM EST.
End of Billing Period Cancellation: If you select this option, your hosting service will continue to be active until the end of your current payment period. Your service will then automatically cancel and end on the due date of that payment period.
Once you have submitted the cancellation request form with all the required information, our Billing team will process your request based on your chosen cancellation type. You will receive a confirmation once the cancellation is complete.
We will provide you with at least ten (10) days’ notice of your renewal pricing before the payment due date for monthly, annual, or longer-term plans. Unless otherwise provided, ChemiCloud will automatically bill your payment method on file as it follows:
- seven (7) days before the payment due date;
- on the payment due date (if the first payment attempt failed for any reason);
- three (3) days after the payment due date (if the second payment attempt failed for any reason).
You expressly acknowledge, agree, and authorize us to automatically bill the applicable fee and/or charge your credit card or other payment methods on file for each Renewal Term, unless you terminate or cancel the Services prior to such charge as provided in this section. All fees are billed in United States Dollars (“USD”) and are subject to change with prior notice to you.
ChemiCloud is only able to automatically collect payments from customers with credit cards stored on file. All other payment methods (e.g. PayPal one-time payments) must be initiated manually by you. It is your responsibility to ensure that all fees are paid no later than their payment due date.
As a customer of ChemiCloud, it is your responsibility to ensure that all billing information on file with ChemiCloud is accurate and that any credit card or other automated payment method on file has sufficient funds for processing. You are solely responsible for any and all fees charged to your payment method by the issuer, bank, or financial institution including, but not limited to, membership, overdraft, insufficient funds, and over the credit limit fees. ChemiCloud screens all orders for fraud. In certain cases, if your account is flagged for fraud, your order will not be processed. ChemiCloud has no liability for not providing Services, including third-party services if your account fails the fraud screen.
ChemiCloud 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 pricing on our website and billing information provided by ChemiCloud through the client area or through other methods of communication, including notices sent or posted by ChemiCloud.
Any account not paid in full by the end of the Term will be given a one (1) day grace period. If payment is not made within the one (1) day grace period, ChemiCloud reserves the right to suspend your Services. ChemiCloud reserves the right to terminate Services fourteen (14) days after the payment due date (Shared Hosting, WordPress Hosting, Reseller Hosting) and three (3) days after the payment due date (VPS Hosting).
ChemiCloud is not responsible for any damages or losses (including any data) as a result of suspension or termination for non-payment of your account. In addition, ChemiCloud reserves the right to refuse to reactivate your Services until any and all outstanding invoices have been paid in full.
A "duplicate payment" is identified as any payment made more than once by a customer for a service, either inadvertently or due to system errors, utilizing a credit/debit card or via PayPal. Common instances of such occurrences (but not limited to) involve active PayPal subscriptions where a customer attempts a manual payment ahead of the automatic PayPal subscription.
Upon detection of a duplicate payment by our system, the excess amount is automatically allocated to the customer’s ChemiCloud account as account credit, pending further action or notice by the customer.
In the event of a duplicate payment, you are presented with two options:
1) Full Refund as Account Credit:
You are entitled to a complete refund of the duplicate payment, which will be credited to your ChemiCloud account. This credit is applicable to any future purchases or active services with ChemiCloud.
2) Partial Monetary Refund:
Alternatively, you may opt for a partial refund of the duplicate payment. In this scenario, transaction fees imposed by the payment gateway will be retained by ChemiCloud, and the remaining balance will be refunded to your original mode of payment.
You are required to inform ChemiCloud of any duplicate payment within a period of fourteen (14) days from the payment date.
Should ChemiCloud be notified of a duplicate payment beyond the 14-day period, the option for a monetary refund will no longer be available. The duplicate amount will remain as a credit in your ChemiCloud account.
Duration and Scope of Guarantee:
45-Day Money-Back Guarantee is applicable exclusively to: Shared Web Hosting, Reseller Hosting, and WordPress Hosting.
7-Day Money-Back Guarantee is restricted solely to: VPS Hosting.
The countdown to the end of the guarantee begins from the activation date of the account, not the order placement date.

The Money-Back Guarantee does not extend to:
- Add-on services: Dedicated IP address, SSL Certificate, SiteLock Website Security, SpamExperts E-mail Services, Margetgoo SEO Services, WHMCS Licence, LiteSpeed Web Server Licence, cPanel Licence, CloudLinux Licence, Imunify360 License, Cloud Remote Backup, MailChannels Outbound Email Filtering, Block Storage, Disk Space Add-on, Turbo+ Boost Add-on, Resources Boost Add-on, Inodes Add-on;

General Refund Policies:
After the Money-Back Guarantee period, ChemiCloud upholds a no-refund policy.
Any credits applied to ChemiCloud accounts are non-refundable. They remain active for two (2) years after terminating the last hosting account. Failure to utilize the credit within this period results in forfeiture, with no liabilities falling on ChemiCloud.
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. The same policy applies if you purchase a second service similar to one that is already active in your account. Violations of this Agreement will waive your rights under the refund policy.
Introductory Offers ("Introductory Offers") are provided by ChemiCloud to encourage the launch of new websites on our platform. These offers are accessible to both new customers creating a new account and existing customers commencing a new and separate project ("New Website").
Introductory Offers are designed to facilitate and support the growth of new initiatives by providing an advantageous starting rate. Existing customers may avail themselves of these Introductory Offers only when setting up a New Website distinct from any other project or service currently active in their account.
Existing websites ("Existing Websites") that are already hosted under an existing customer's account are not eligible for Introductory Offers. These projects must adhere to the standard or renewal pricing applicable at the time of service continuation or upgrade.
To maintain equity and the integrity of our promotions, existing customers may not transfer or re-register an Existing Website into a new account or under a new project for the purpose of claiming Introductory Offers.
In the event of such a violation, the offending account(s) may be subject to immediate suspension or termination, and any transactions associated with the violation will not be eligible for a refund, including but not limited to refunds within the standard 7 or 45 day money-back guarantee period offered by ChemiCloud.
Our Migrations Team will make every effort to help you move your website(s) to us. Migrations are provided as a courtesy service. We do not make any guarantees regarding the availability, possibility, or time required to complete an account migration. Each hosting company is configured differently, and some hosting platforms save data in an incompatible or proprietary format, which may make it extremely difficult, if not impossible, to migrate some or all account data. In some cases, we may not be able to assist you in the transfer of data from an old host. The free migration service is available for sixty (60) days from your sign up date. Migrations outside of the sixty (60) day period will incur a charge; please contact a member of our Support department to receive a price quote. In no event shall ChemiCloud be held liable for any lost or missing data or files resulting from a transfer to or from ChemiCloud. You are solely responsible for backing up your data in all circumstances.
Customers who sign up for a 24 or 36-month hosting plan are eligible to receive either a complimentary domain registration for one year or a free domain transfer.
Domain Registration: The complimentary domain registration is applicable only for select extensions. A list of these extensions can be accessed at this link.
The free domain name must be registered at the time of sign-up and is available exclusively for new customers. Unless indicated differently, this promotional offer is limited to the first year of registration. Domains will renew at our standard rates after the initial promotional period.
Domain Transfer: The free domain transfer is available for specific extensions as outlined at this link. Customers must claim the free domain transfer within 30 days of hosting plan activation by submitting a request to our Billing department. As a benefit of this transfer, the existing expiration date of your domain will be extended by one year. Subsequent to this extension, the domain renewal will be subject to our standard rates.
Should you opt to cancel your hosting plan within our 7/45 Day Money Back Guarantee period, you will receive a full refund for your payment, minus the prevailing rate for domain name registration or transfer. The current rates can be reviewed at this link.
