The Vision

The Vision

Since Port Eighty’s startup in March of 2004, web sites hosted by Port Eighty have experience no more than 1% average downtime. A track record Port Eighty works hard to maintain and prides itself in.


All hosting accounts have a full money back guarantee, upon cancellation within 30 days of payment, if the account holder is not satisfied for any reason. The amount refunded will be the dollar amount paid to Port Eighty, Inc., by the account holder, less the bandwidth used by that account for the first 30 days of service. Domain registration fees are not refundable. If Port Eighty, Inc. registers a domain name, on the account holder’s behalf, as part of a free registration promotion – the account holder must keep their domain name under Port Eighty, Inc’s current domain name registration services. Cancellation or termination of account holder’s account will void the promotion offer and the account holder will be charged $20 for your domain name registration.

Account holder may cancel your hosting account at anytime. Refunds for accounts cancelled after the first 30 days will be granted less the dollar amount for 1/12 the annual hosting account price multiplied by the number of full month and days the account was active. Any bandwidth overage will be deducted before refund is granted. Port Eighty, Inc. will refund the account holder ONLY for the full months that the account holder has used and prorated for any remaining days.


The account holder are responsible for making sure that Port Eighty, Inc. has the account holder’s current and correct contact information on file.

No more than twice a month may Port Eighty, Inc. email the account holder information on promotions or discounts relevant to the account holder’s current services provided by Port Eighty, Inc. Port Eighty, Inc. asks that the account holder does not report these messages as spam to Spamcop or any other similar service. Doing so may be considered grounds for termination of the account holder’s account. Port Eighty, Inc. will NOT give the account holder’s email address or any other contact information to any third party except under the direction of law enforcement officials.

Shared hosting accounts should not be used for mission critical web sites or email that requires absolute redundancy.


The term of an account's contract is based on the type of billing chosen at the time of sign up. The contract's length is equal to the term of service paid for. Monthly billing is on a thirty day contract, Semi-annually is on a six month contract and annually is on a twelve month contract. Upon the completion of the contract Port Eighty, Inc. is in no way required to extend the contract and/or its terms for any period of time.
