Cancelling your account

If you decide to cancel your account at any time that is fine, although I wish you would contact me and let me know what the problem was so we could work something out. But, if you still wish to leave Destxhost cancelling your form of payment is your responsibility. If you have an automatic payment setup and Destxhost receives payment we will continue to provide hosting for you, we will not refund any “accidental payments” as we are providing a service when you pay for it and there is no way to prove when you cancelled your account if you paid us. So please just don’t pay us if you cancel your account, I know this sound very simple but this problem has occurred in the past.
