Perhaps another host out there can explain/discuss why a host chooses a particular refund policy (see also Do you pay monthly or yearly for your hosting..? for context)
maybe you should read the thread title "Do you pay monthly or yearly for your hosting..? " it has nothing to do with partial refunds..

my posts are in relation the the title thread as in discussing the contract relation to monthly, annual and other contracted periods.

^^^And again you respond with evasions, context-switching and mis-quoting. Now you want to prevent people who disagree with you from posting anything that does not literally answer the question in the literal title, exempting yourself of course. Sheesh

Based upon the posts in this thread, I have identified the reason why there is an aversion -- by customers -- to annual billing cycles and responded with a solution to make the annual cycle more attractive (by altering the contract) while remaining equitable for both parties. This is within subject matter.

Is there anyone out there that can post with reason and intellectual honesty the problem with my solution?

so explain to me where in this thread title "Do you pay monthly or yearly for your hosting..? " does it mention partial refunds

when i have pointed out the different contract length which is relevant to the thread title. so i would say it is your that is confusing others with evasions, context-switching and mis-quoting.

We do monthly payments for all our server payments. Even though we have carefully selected the best datacenters to lease our servers from, it is just a precautionary measure in the event we ever need to move to a another datacenter. That extra flexibility is worth the little increase in monthly fees.

I am pretty happy with the web hosting provider I am using now and I always pay for the hosting service every two years. By doing so, you can save a lot of money on hosting bills.

Paying monthly is preferable as you get safe from...

If company gets bankrupted.

If you wanna upgrade you wanna pay again.

But most companies offer free domains etc and doesnt do monthly payments.

Due to high payment processor charges and also to provide domain etc.

If you have your system correctly set up and you upgrade/downgrade from monthly to annual or visa versa then all you would pay is the difference in plans and if the new plan is cheaper the difference you already paid is placed as a credit on your account for future invoices.

yes some processors charge high fees, but most now will allow you to pass these onto clients.

I would think that the few dollars in hosting fees that might be lost is the least of your worries here.

Paying monthly is preferrable for individuals, because they often do not know in January whether they are going to use this service in June.

However, serious companies prefer annual payments. Service upgrades/downgrades are made within 5-10 minutes any moment you like. Payments are usually computed automatically without any issues.

Therefore, the question is only psychological, not technical. Do you prefer paying often and with smaller portions or issuing payment once a year and forgetting about it till the next year? That is all.
