If you acquire a web hosting account for your sites, you may learn that it does not fulfill some requirements which your script-driven applications have, or if the websites are not doing very well, you may decide that you will no longer want to run them, so you can end up possessing an account that you won't really use. In this case, it would be good if you can close the account and receive your money back since you will not be able to use this service for one reason or another. Some companies offer refunds - full or prorated, while some do not, so before you buy your new account, it's recommended to check not only if the service will match your needs and requirements, but also what refund policy the service provider has for possible refunds.
