Cancellations must be done in writing via email. Once we receive your cancellation and have confirmed all necessary information with you via e-mail, we will inform you in writing (typically email) that your account has been canceled. Before cancelling your account we are requesting you to provide us your latest PayPal transaction ID number or similar. This process reduces the likelihood of mistakes, fraudulent/malicious requests, and ensures you are aware that the files, emails, and account may be removed immediately after a cancellation request is processed.

As a client of OrangeWebsite, it is your responsibility to ensure that your payment information is up to date, and that all invoices are paid on time. You agree that until and unless you notify OrangeWebsite of your desire to cancel any or all services received, those services will be billed on a recurring basis, unless otherwise stated in writing by OrangeWebsite.

Backups and Data Loss

Using our backup services is at client's sole risk. We run backups every second day on shared hosting servers and keep multiple backup copies in our storage server.

Client needs to setup system to send the backups over to the backup server himself.

Backup services are provided to you as a courtesy. OrangeWebsite is not responsible for files and/or data residing on your account. You agree to take full responsibility for files and data transferred and to maintain all appropriate backup of files and data stored on OrangeWebsite servers.



The following sections outline various policies that apply to our domain services.


Domain False Positives

When using our domain search ability for domain purchase, it is possible to return a false positive for certain extensions.


Domain Premiums

Our domain search engine can not detect if a domain is a premium domain and will always return as free, this is due to the fact the API to the domain registrar does not return this information. We reserve the right to cancel the domain purchase and refund the amount paid in full. Client can also have the funds credited purchase a new domain name. If the client wishes to buy the premium domain for it's price we can arrange such buy after funds have been received.


Domain Expiration

You acknowledge that you assume all risks and all consequences if you wait until close or after the end of a domain name registration term to attempt to renew the registration. You acknowledge that post-expiration renewal or redemption processes if any, involve additional fees (e.g. Restore fees). You agree that after the expiration of the term (failure to renew the domain in time) of a domain name registration we may remove the domain name from the zone, and direct the domain to nameservers and IP addresses designated by us. We reserve the right to release the domain or do anything with the domain should it not be paid within 14 days of its expiration date (If applicable to the domain extension). You will have no claim over any earnings nor are you entitled to any compensation in exchange therefore over this period. If you do not contact us or pay to renew before the expiration date you agree that you have abandoned the domain and you relinquish any and all rights that you may have had to the domain to us other than the rights that we provide to you in this Agreement.


IBS (.net, .com, .org everything excluding .is) Registration

Our domain registrations are managed by InternetBS registrar, based in the Bahamas, reflecting our commitment to freedom of speech and expression and option of anonymity.

InternetBS has been our trusted partner since our inception, supporting these core values alongside us. They facilitate anonymous domain registration through our platform except in rare cases of country code top level domains (ie: .de, .it etc), ensuring user privacy and freedom.

It's important to note that while they support freedom of speech and have stayed true to the values of Orangewebsite, adherence to both regulations of Bahamas and InternetBS's specific terms of service guidelines is mandatory. Detailed information on InternetBS's current TOS can be read here.


ISNIC (.is) Registration

ISNIC (.is) stands out as a premier domain registrar, renowned for its commitment to freedom of speech and a robust approach to safeguarding the liberties that Iceland is celebrated for. Established in 1995, ISNIC has demonstrated a steadfast adherence to its policies, resulting in an exceptionally low rate of domain shutdowns, primarily limited to instances of policy violation. This reputation underscores their resilience in maintaining principles.

Registrants have the option to enlist their domain under their personal NIC during the registration phase or utilize our NIC services for enhanced privacy protection. However, it is essential to acknowledge that ISNIC retains the authority to require the removal of a domain from under privacy protection, should circumstances warrant such action.

It's important to note that while Iceland is acclaimed for its progressive freedom of speech laws, adherence to both national regulations and ISNIC's specific guidelines is mandatory. Detailed information on ISNIC's current policy framework is available for review here.


Cancellations and Refunds

OrangeWebsite reserves the right to cancel, suspend, or otherwise restrict access to the account at any time with or without notice.

Customers may cancel the service at any time via the client area management panel. OrangeWebsite offers an unconditional 30-day money-back guarantee on managed shared hosting for customers who paid the first invoice with Paypal or Bitcoin. Specific terms and conditions regarding this are explained below in section 9.

Cancellation requests received after 30 days from the date the hosting service was activated will go into effect on the renewal date for that particular hosting package, unless the client specifically requests immediate cancellation and termination of the service. This would not, however, change the refund policy. The following methods of payments are non-refundable, and refunds will be posted as credit to the hosting account:

  • Bank Wire Transfers
  • Checks
  • Cryptocurrency
  • Money orders

Transaction fees for any refund will be deducted from the original payment.

There are no refunds for the following:

  • Administrative Fees
  • Install Fees
  • Domain Name Purchases
  • SSL Certificates
  • Self-managed services (VPS/Dedicated Servers)
  • Credit Line (Add Funds)


Bandwidth Usage

You are allocated a monthly bandwidth allowance. This allowance varies depending on the hosting package you purchase. Should your account pass the allocated amount we reserve the right to suspend the account until the start of the next allocation, suspend the account until more bandwidth is purchased at an additional fee, suspend the account until you upgrade to a higher level of package, terminate the account and/or charge you an additional fee for the overages. Unused transfer in one month cannot be carried over to the next month.


Money back Guarantee

If you are not completely satisfied with our services within the first 30 days from the date your first service has been activated, you will be given a full refund of the contract amount. Remember, this only applies for shared hosting and does not apply to VPS's, dedicated servers, administrative fees, install fees for custom software or domain name purchases.

To receive a refund if eligible please contact support by sending an email to support@orangewebsite.com from your registered email address or open the ticket directly from your client area when logged in here.

OrangeWebsite will not activate new orders or activate new packages for customers who have an outstanding balance with OrangeWebsite. For a new order to be setup or a new package to be activated, you must have a balance of 0.00 EUR or more, unless otherwise stated by OrangeWebsite in writing.


Uptime Guarantee

If your shared server has a physical downtime that is not within the 99.9% uptime you may receive one month of credit on your account. Approval of the credit is at the discretion of OrangeWebsite dependent upon justification provided. Third party monitoring service reports may not be used for justification due to a variety of factors including the monitor's network capacity/transit availability. The uptime of the server is defined as the reported uptime from the operating system and the Apache Web Server which may differ from the uptime reported by other individual services. To request a credit, please contact sales@orangewebsite.com or via contact forms here with justification. All requests must be made in writing via email. Uptime guarantees only apply to shared solutions. Dedicated servers and VPSs are covered by a network guarantee in which the credit is prorated for the amount of time the server is down which is not related to our uptime guarantee.


Reseller Policy

The following sections outline various policies that apply to our reseller services.



As a reseller of our services, you bear the responsibility of ensuring that your clients adhere to our Terms of Service. It is imperative that you communicate our policies effectively to your clients and ensure their compliance. Any breach of these Terms by your clients will be considered a breach on your part.

Please be vigilant in monitoring the activities of your clients on our servers. Failure to enforce our Terms of Service among your clients can result in actions against your reseller account, including but not limited to suspension or termination of your reseller privileges.

As a reseller, you are expected to act in accordance with our policies and maintain the integrity of our services. Your cooperation is essential in maintaining a safe and compliant hosting environment for all users.


Client Support

It is your duty to manage and support your clients directly. We provide support and service assistance exclusively to you as our reseller. We do not offer direct support to your sub-clients. In instances where a client of yours contacts us directly, we reserve the right to redirect them back to you for resolution.


VPS Non-Authenticated SMTP

All virtual servers have port 25 (non-authenticated) smtp blocked. All servers requiring this port to be enabled, need to be fullfil any of the following criteria:

  • At least 3 months old in existance
  • Billing cycle is quarterly (3-Months) and above
  • VPS Level 3 and above

and a valid reason is given as to why needed. This rule is in place to prevent abusive spoofing behavior on the network. We suggest anyone with legitimate use to send email to utilize secure smtp services such as Sendgrid or SendLayer. Refunds are not given on the basis of the server not having this port enabled as there are good alternatives available for the legitimate end-user.


Cryptocurrency Payment Gateways

We provide payment providers for cryptocurrency which are BitPay and Coinpayment. These providers reserve the right to request KYC (Know your customer).


Dedicated Servers

Dedicated servers are delivered with SSH access and KVM if purchased. All credentials are stored in our system encrypted and salted, thus it is entirely client's responsibility to make sure the credentials are saved in a secure place on their behalf. Servers come with pre-installed OS and control panel that customer can chooses when ordering the service.

If no additional backup service is ordered, dedicated servers are NOT backed up by us and it is the responsibility of the client to maintain backups or have a solution for this. You may purchase an additional hard drive and maintain backups to it as the simplest solution. Additional hard drives may be ordered within the initial order or later on by contacting us at sales@orangewebsite.com or via our contact forms here. We guarantee 99.9% network uptime on dedicated servers.

In case we suspect violation of these terms, we try to consult at first with our client to solve the problem before suspending the server. Continuous violations will lead to service suspension.

We respect our clients' privacy and never access their servers without up front permission! This could be in example if the client authorizes us to install a third party software for him.


Price Change

We reserve the right to change prices listed on OrangeWebsite.com, and the right to increase the amount of resources given to plans at any time.


DDoS Protection Service Policy

DDoS Protection Commitment
We commit to providing robust DDoS protection plans designed to shield your services from various types of service exhaustion attacks, in accordance with the specific plan you select. Our DDoS mitigation services are offered at competitive prices, ensuring affordability and effectiveness.

Service Response to Unprotected Attacks
In the event that a service without active DDoS protection is targeted by an attack, we may implement a nullroute on the affected service's IP address for the duration of the attack. Affected clients will receive notification regarding the attack and will have the option to either upgrade their service to include DDoS protection or to wait out the attack.

Penalty for Post-Attack Protection Activation
Activating DDoS protection for a website already under attack may incur a penalty fee of €199.90, exclusive of the regular monthly protection fee. This policy is in place to encourage proactive measures against potential attacks.

Recommendation for Pre-emptive Protection
We strongly recommend that clients who anticipate the possibility of DDoS attacks subscribe to our DDoS protection services at the time of checkout or before any attack occurs. This pre-emptive approach is the most effective way to ensure uninterrupted service and protection against potential DDoS threats.


Price Change

Discounts and coupon codes are reserved for first-time accounts *or first-time customers* only and may not be used towards the purchase of a domain registration unless otherwise specified. If you have signed up using a particular domain, you may not resign up for that domain using another coupon at a later date.

Coupon abuse will not be tolerated and may result in the suspension or termination of the account. Coupons or discounts are only valid towards the initial purchase, and do not affect the renewal or recurring price.
