- Automatic Renewal of Account and/or Domain. As a courtesy and not as an obligation (contractual or otherwise), fourteen (14) days prior to the expiration of Customer’s hosting account, Hostgool may will automatically renew Customer’s hosting account, for the same duration initially selected, at the then-current, non-promotional rate, by charging the applicable fee to Customer’s originally-selected method of payment.

While consenting to Hostgool performance of said courtesy, Customer hereby releases Hostgool from all liability for its failure for any reason to renew said account or said domain. Customer acknowledges that there may be many reasons why Hostgool is unable to renew said account or domain, including but not limited to inability of Hostgool, for any reason, to bill said renewal to Customer’s credit card, to contact or otherwise get response from Customer at last known email address, or otherwise.
