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