Just so I can make sure this hosting is suitable for you

CentOS provides PHP 5.4.16, Ruby 2.0.0, Python 2.7.5, NodeJS 6 and MariaDB 5.5 (compatible with MySQL 5.5) and is supported until 2024.
Ubuntu provides PHP 7.0.13, Ruby 2.3.0, Python 2.7.11, NodeJS 6 and MariaDB 10.0.29 (compatible with MySQL 5.6) and is supported until 2021.
If you are unsure which to choose check your software requirements, if your software is compatible with both I suggest CentOS due to the longer support cycle.

Payment is taken by credit card, if you are a new customer you will be prompted to save your card details.

Payment is taken one month in advance on or shortly after the 1st of the month, you will be emailed a receipt.

Your first bill will contain a pro-rated charge for the remainder of the month and the advance payment for the next month.

You may cancel at any time, however any remaining time for the month will not be refunded.

Extra charges maybe applied to some situations. Example: if you require a backup to be restored because you deleted a database by accident you may be charged for this. I will provide you with a quote for any extra work.

In the case of a server failure where a backup needs to be restored you won't be charged.
