After successful payment, the service subject of your order is considered active. BoostedHost provides instant account activation for services promoted as such. Services, such as, but not limited to Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Servers, that require manual interaction and/or custom setup will be handled in a timely manner.

Price formation and Renewal of services
To better understand the pricing we offer, we would like to define two sets of terms:
- “Sign Up Price”, “Initial Price”, “Promotional Price” and “First Payment Amount” – These terms are used when referring to the payment of the invoice for the initial term of the purchased Web Hosting Service.
- “Renewal”, “Renewal Cost”, “Standard Price”, “Regular Price” – These terms are used when referring to the value of any additional invoice for the renewal of Web Hosting Service after the initially pre-paid term has passed.
By accepting our Terms of Service, our customers agree that any Initial Price applies only for the first paid invoice for any purchased Web Hosting Service.
Every subsequent invoice is usually for the regular price of the purchased product (which is always shown on our product pages) meaning that it may or may not be equal to the price of the First paid invoice.
To form the prices of our services we are taking into an account the following price forming variables:
- Infrastructure Costs
- Cost of human labor in the countries BoostedHost operates
- Price of any Third Party Services related directly or indirectly to the Web Hosting Services we offer
BoostedHost reserves the right to change the prices of the Web Hosting Products or services as well as their respectful renewal and setup fees with or without reason related to the price forming factors.
The customer agrees that the hardware resources such as but not limited to Disk Space, CPU power and RAM should be utilized only for the sole purpose of the Web Hosting Service. The limitations of these hardware resources can be placed either by the law, BoostedHost Terms of Service or the resource capacity specifications listed on the Web Hosting Products pages of our website.
It is a customer’s responsibility to maintain the healthy state of their Web Hosting Services with BoostedHost so any negative resource usage footprint on global level affecting others can be avoided or reduced to a reasonable value.
Technical Support Service
The term Technical Support Service refers to any technical assistance or answers received as a result of a query submitted to our Technical Support Fleet. BoostedHost provides free Technical Support service as a complimentary service to all our Web Hosting packages.
The Technical Support Service is an additional free of charge service, that is not included as a service in any of the Web Hosting Services offered by BoostedHost. Any assistance provided through the Technical Support Service is considered as an act of good fate in the future business relationship with our customers. Our Technical Support fleet will try to assist as further as possible with any technical or non-technical related matter to the best of our knowledge and expertise. The only boundary our Technical Support Service knows is if the issue submitted by the customer is not related directly to the Web Hosting Service we offer.
In case of an issue reaching a state in which our Technical Support Fleet cannot assist any further we are obligated to provide our customers with:
- Detailed information on the experienced issue and if known, its cause.
- A detailed report on the reasons why we are unable to assist any further.
- A detailed report of the applied fixes or any findings results of the performed investigation of the experienced issue.
Any additional fees applied by our Technical Support Fleet can be applied in one or multiple of the following scenarios:

We will do our best to fit the timeframe for any case resolution expected by the customer, however, we are not obligated to achieve case resolution nor any particular outcome or result.
BoostedHost reserves the right to refuse Technical Support Service to our customers only after specifically specifying the reason behind that outcome.
The customers agree that any Technical Support Service listed on our website or mentioned anywhere may not be successful and the submitted issue might remain unresolved. Furthermore, the customer agrees that the Technical Support Service might not be provided at all in case the support request/issue is not financially, technically or physically in the capabilities of BoostedHost.
