HostGator gives you an unconditional 45-day money-back guarantee on Virtual Private Servers for any customer who paid the first invoice with a credit card or with Paypal.
Only first-time accounts are eligible for a refund. For example, if you've had an account with us before, canceled and signed up again, you will not be eligible for a refund or if you have opened a second account with us.
The following methods of payments are non-refundable, and refunds will be posted as credit to the hosting account:

VPS accounts come with a default inode limit of 1,000,000 to better protect the file system. The limit can be increased if there is a legitimate reason to have it increased. To make a request, please email our support team.

Your use of this service is at your sole risk. Our backup service is provided to you as a courtesy. HostGator is not responsible for files and/or data residing on your account.

Backups will not be provided for accounts that have been suspended or terminated for any reason unless otherwise agreed to in writing by HostGator.
Approval of any credit is at the discretion of HostGator 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 our support via chat or phone (1.866.96.GATOR or 00+1-713-574-5287 if international). The 99.9% up time guarantee only applies to shared/reseller solutions. Dedicated and VPS servers 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.
