1. When can I expect my order to be filled? When will I get my account?

We will send a welcome email as soon as your order is fully processed. Due to the high volume of incoming orders during the sale, our delivery of new accounts may be somewhat delayed. Please remain patient as we work diligently to fulfill all orders as quickly as possible.

3. Am I able to upgrade, renew or extend my existing package with the discount?

6. How can I apply the coupon if I add a new package through my Customer Portal?

To add a new package to an existing hosting account with the discount, the package must be ordered from our signup page. During signup, you'll be prompted to provide your billing password to complete the order. The new order will then be added to the appropriate billing account.

If you have already signed up for a new package in your Customer Portal, you will need to contact us via phone or Live Chat requesting that the coupon be applied to your newly purchased hosting package.

The discount is only applicable to the first invoice. If you would like to maximize your savings, you should order your new package for the longest billing cycle available on our signup page.
