Payments

ServerPoint introduced hourly billing for their ColossusCloud platform. They compute the hourly price by dividing the monthly standard price of a virtual server by 672, which is the number of hours in 28 days. You add funds to your account via their accepted payment methods, such as PayPal or credit card. Every hour, their system deducts the hourly cost of your virtual server(s) from these funds.

If you have a virtual server for more than 28 days in a month with more than 28 days, you will be billed the monthly price. So, if you create a virtual server and destroy it four hours later, you would pay for four hours of that virtual server.

Moreover, approximately 72 hours before you run out of funds, their system calculates the total cost for your virtual servers for the next 672 hours and charges your credit card for such an amount. You will receive an invoice if they don’t have a credit card on record for your account.

Lastly, your account may be suspended if you don’t pay within those 72 hours. Refunds are issued through the same payment method originally used to purchase the Services. All refunds are subject to administrative fees.
