I was hit with a page trying to sell me VPS packages, but I could easily override it and continue with the deactivation.
Once I’d completed that step, my account was deactivated. Although the process was super easy, it was unclear if and when I’d receive my refund. As I was still well within the money-back guarantee period, I jumped on live chat to confirm.
It took me a couple of minutes, but as per my other experiences with 000webhost’s customer service, the agent responded quickly. I asked whether my payment would be refunded and the agent confirmed it would be returned to me within seven business days.
