This doesn’t apply to domain name registrations or renewals since these are purchased for one year in advance.

Any custom work performed under Premium Support is not refundable.

Accounts cancelled or terminated by BrightFire LLC that are in violation of our Terms of Service (TOS) do not qualify for the 30-day money back guarantee.
