HostHatch agrees to provide and customer agrees to purchase the services requested by customer from the website, in email or in writing. Customer may add services via any of the methods and agrees to pay in advance for them whether they be one time charges or recurring monthly fees.
HostHatch will invoice Customer for Fees and Expenses monthly, quarterly, semi-annually or annually. Payment shall be due immediately upon the invoice date for recurring services. Invoices which remain unpaid two days after they are due, shall be suspended and after 14 days, terminated and any data stored on the service, completely wiped. Unless otherwise agreed in writing by the Parties, the failure of HostHatch to include earned or incurred Fees or Expenses on a given invoice shall not relieve Customer of its obligation to pay such Fees or Expenses.
Chargebacks and disputes will lead to suspension of the whole account, including all services that are active under the account. We may choose to cancel the account completely without any refunds, at our sole discretion in these cases.
Our virtual private servers (VPS) carry a 7-day money back guarantee with a valid reason requirement. Valid reasons include issues which are caused directly due to the fault of HostHatch. Issues outside our control or network do not qualify for a refund.
You may be charged for the resources you have used including but not limited to bandwidth, RAM and storage space. Upgrades, one-time fees, setup fees and licensing fees whatsoever are non-refundable. All other services except VPS are non-refundable.
A refund must be requested by opening a ticket with our billing department and providing an overview of the issue you had with the service, along with the appropriate evidence/logs providing it to be an issue caused due to the fault of HostHatch. A cancellation request is equivalent to deleting your server and does not warrant a refund request.

On our website, port speed means the speed of the network interface that has been given to your server. This usually is 100Mbps, 1Gbps or 10Gbps. Bandwidth means the amount of data transfer you are allowed to transfer on the network, both going out of your server, or coming in to your server. This means both incoming and outgoing traffic is counted. Unmetered means that we will not monitor your bandwidth usage and you can use your port fully, all the time, without any limitations. If there is a bandwidth limit, it means that you are not allowed to use more bandwidth than the limit in one month. Your server will be stopped if you reach your bandwidth limit. Additional bandwidth can be added for $4 per Terabyte by contacting our support. Bandwidth limit is reset on the 1st of every month, regardless of your service due date.
Customer grants HostHatch a blanket security interest in the customer’s contract with their customers who are renting servers from HostHatch in one of HostHatch’s used facilities and any equipment which they have colocated in one of HostHatch’s used facilities on behalf of HostHatch in the event of non-payment by customer – customer agrees that HostHatch may take these customer contracts direct and or sell the equipment without a tortious interference claim or unlawful conversion claim to protect the credit balance owed to HostHatch by the customer and full ownership of the contracts shall transfer as well if balance is more than 60 days old.
The term of this Agreement shall begin upon the date the server is installed and made available to customer and shall be for 1 month and shall renew for successive 1 month terms until terminated by either Party upon the sooner of (i) thirty (30) days prior written notice to the other Party, or (ii) the expiration or termination of all Service(s) set forth in the Statement of Work and all Work Order(s).
In the event that Customer commits a material breach of any of its obligations hereunder, HostHatch may terminate this Agreement or (at HostHatch’s sole option) suspend, interrupt or terminate one or more Service(s) to which such breach pertains by sending written notice of termination to Customer with termination effective as stated on the electronic mail notice.
Unless the Parties agree otherwise in writing, termination of the Agreement shall also serve to terminate all Service(s) and Statements of Work and to cancel all Work Orders, and Customer shall pay HostHatch all Fees and Expenses earned or incurred by HostHatch pursuant to such Service(s), Statements of Work and Work Orders through the date of termination, less any payments made hereunder by Customer prior to said termination. In the event one or more Service(s) is terminated prior to the expiration of the Term for such Service(s) (other than due to a material breach of this Agreement by HostHatch.

Upon HostHatch breach of the foregoing warranty, Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be to require HostHatch to exercise commercially reasonable efforts to repair or replace the nonconforming Service(s); provided, however, that, with respect to any Service(s) which are interrupted or rendered inoperable due solely to HostHatch breach of the foregoing warranty for any time period, Customer shall also be entitled to a pro-rata refund of any Fees attributable to the interrupted or inoperable Service(s) in an amount determined by multiplying the fixed monthly, recurring Fees (if any) for the interrupted or inoperable Service(s) by the ratio that the number of consecutive hours of inoperability bears to 720 hours (for the purpose of this computation, each month is deemed to have 720 hours). HostHatch will not be liable to any extent whatsoever for interruption, restriction, inoperability or malfunction of any Service(s) which is not caused solely by a breach of the warranty set forth in this Section. HostHatch expressly reserves the right to suspend, interfere with, impair or terminate Service(s) as necessary for purposes of maintenance, upgrades or repair (either by HostHatch or by any supplier, partner or independent contractor of HostHatch) or in the event of any circumstance which HostHatch, in its sole discretion, deems necessary or desirable to prevent or remedy an impairment of, or harm to, the integrity or functionality of any Service(s) or any plant, services or facilities of any Indemnitees or of any third party, and neither the exercise nor the non-exercise of the foregoing rights or discretion shall constitute a breach of any provision of this Agreement.
