All fees are subject to change. Discounted plans are those in effect at the time of the commencement of your account and are charged as stated therein.

220.127.116.11 Long Term Agreement.
In some instances HostLabs will agree to waive the “Set Up Fee” upon your agreement to maintain your account in good standing for 12 or 24 months. In such event, and upon your express agreement to the terms of this paragraph, the “Set Up Fee” will not be collected at the commencement of your agreement. Instead, the “Set Up Fee” will be collected upon the early termination of your account (i.e. any termination before the completion of the full term of your agreement term). You hereby authorize HostLabs to charge your credit card or seek payment from you via your selected choice of payment options immediately in such event and without further notice to you. Upon the successful completion of the full term of your agreement, however, the “Set Up Fee” will be waived and thereby no longer subject to collection.
1.1.3 Right to Change.
HostLabs specifically reserves the right to institute additional charges upon notice to you. HostLabs also reserves the right to alter, change, amend or delete charges at its sole option. HostLabs further reserves the right to institute new services and charge fees in association with the provision of such new services as it deems appropriate.
1.2 – PAYMENT OF FEES
1.2.1 Acceptable Payment Methods.
HostLabs accepts payment by Credit Card (American Express, Visa, MasterCard, Discover) and by personal check, cashier’s check, electronic check or money order.

You further authorize HostLabs to charge your credit card for all subsequent period fees at, or a reasonable period in advance of, the commencement of any such subsequent period. You agree to maintain current valid existing credit card information with HostLabs for the purpose of satisfying the HostLabs charges as they become due. Refusal or rejection of any such charge or any portion thereof is grounds for account suspension and/or termination at the sole option of HostLabs under Paragraph 8 herein.
1.2.3 Payment by Check or Money Order.

An administrative fee of $25.00 will be charged for the refusal, rejection or return of any such check for any reason whatsoever or any portion thereof. In addition, refusal, rejection or return of any such check for any reason whatsoever or any portion thereof is grounds for account suspension and/or termination at the sole option of HostLabs under Paragraph 8 herein. It is recommended that in order to avoid any service interruption that you submit your payment to HostLabs a sufficient time before the expiration of the current service period so that it reaches HostLabs in advance of the renewal date.
