Renewal fees for the following term will be automatically invoiced to your account.
Failure to pay
In the case of a web site hosted on a LS hosting server, failure of Client to remit payment to LS by the invoice due date is cause for removal of the Client’s web site files from the LS hosting server.

Reactivation of services will only be performed during LS regular business hours (Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. PST).

All accounting issues should be addressed to LS at firstname.lastname@example.org

Disconnected customer owned equipment shall be returned to the customer only upon full payment of outstanding invoices, less any credits due based on our Refund Policy, below.
