The refund policy of every internet hosting company you choose is really important since there's always a possibility that the service might not cover all requirements for your script-driven applications to function properly, you may have difficulties to maintain the account or you can simply decide that you do not want to use the site anymore if, for instance, you see that it is not functioning well. In any of these cases, you'll lose your money if your web hosting provider does not offer refunds, even partial ones. In this light, reviewing the refund policies of any company you consider to sign up with will be a guarantee that this will not happen. The policies vary from one company to another and a refund may be offered for various time periods.
