  • problems elsewhere on the internet that prohibit you from viewing your account. WPHostingSpot.com is not responsible for browser, DNS, or other caching that might make it appear your site is unavailable even though others can still access your information.

Credit Request and Payment Procedures

In order to receive a credit, customer must open a billing ticket in our help desk. Each request in connection with this SLA must include customer’s account number (domain name) and the dates and times of the unavailability of customer’s Web site. The request must be received by WPHostingSpot.com within ten (10) business days after customer’s Web Site was not available. If the unavailability is confirmed by WPHostingSpot.com, credits will be applied within two billing cycles after WPHostingSpot.com’s receipt of customer’s credit request.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the total amount credited to customer in a particular month under this SLA shall not exceed the total hosting fee paid by customer for such month for the affected Services. Credits are exclusive of any applicable taxes to customer or collected by WPHostingSpot.com and are customer’s sole and exclusive remedy with respect to any failure or deficiency in the Web Site Availability of customer’s Web site.
