Frequently Asked Questions

 

Q. If I make a payment, would I receive a receipt for the payment?

Yes. We will email you a detailed receipt of your payment within 24-48 hours of our receiving and processing of your payment. For payments received during a weekend or on a US banking holiday, the receipt will be emailed to you during the next business day. (Please note that for most orders paid with credit cards, your payment and order may be processed even before you receive the payment receipt. For more information on order processing schedule, please visit our General FAQ page).

Q. I am ordering multiple domains or multiple accounts on the same day. Can I make a single, combined payment for all those domains/accounts?

Yes, you can make a single payment for the total amount due for multiple domains or accounts that you are ordering. Please make sure to mention the domain/account names you are paying for in the "comments" field of our payment form.

Q. I received renewal invoice emails from GlobalFront for multiple domains or multiple accounts. Can I make a single, combined payment for all those domains or accounts?

Yes, you can make a single payment for the total amount due for renewal of multiple accounts or multiple domains. Please make sure to mention the domain names you are paying for in the "comments" field of our payment form.

Q. I need to update my credit card information for monthly recurring payment term. How do I do that?

To change credit card information for recurring monthly charges for your account, please click on Pay by Credit Cards link on this page. After the browser loads our "Secure Credit Card Payment Form", please enter your new credit card information. In the "comment" field at the lower end of the form, please specify that the new card information is for monthly recurring charge for your account. Your card won't be charged until the next payment due date for your account, but you will still receive a confirmation from us regarding update to your payment information within the next business day.

Q. How is renewal handled for web hosting and virtual server accounts?

If you are on a monthly payment plan, then your account will be automatically renewed every month, unless you cancel your account by emailing us a cancellation request along with your account/domain name and password. Your credit card will be charged on or around the renewal date for the monthly hosting fee due for your account.

If you are on a 3-month, 6-month or 12-month payment term, then we will email you an invoice at least 14-21 days before the expiration date. You would need to visit the payment link that is in the renewal invoice, and make a payment to renew your account.

Q. How is renewal handled for domain service accounts?

For any domain service account that you have with us, we will email you an invoice at least 14-21 days before service expiration date. You would need to visit the payment link that is in the renewal invoice, and make a payment to renew services for your domain by the payment due date. 

If you would like to have us automatically renew your domain every year, please let us know in advance while paying for a current invoice, to ensure that your credit card information is saved with us for automated future renewals.  We will send you a renewal notice at least 14-21 days in advance of the expiration date.  Your credit card will be automatically charged approximately 7 days in advance of the expiration date, and your domain will be renewed after successful payment.  The 7 days of lead time for renewal would help us contact you in case there is a payment issue and would allow you time to resolve any payment issue before expiration of the domain.

Q. My website hosting service already expired and the website got deactivated on GlobalFront's servers. Could I still renew the web hosting service with GlobalFront?

After your website got deactivated due to non-renewal on time, if you act quickly, you might still be able to renew services for the website.  To do so, please make a renewal payment that was requested for renewal of the hosting service in your most recent invoice from GlobalFront, plus an additional $10.00 service reactivation fee.  (Under some scenarios, if your account(s) was/were in good payment status with GlobalFront prior to such deactivation, GlobalFront may renew hosting services for the sites without requiring for the reactivation fee).  However, such renewals would be retroactively effective from the expiration date, so you won't get any credit for the days when your services stayed deactivated for non-renewal on time.

Q. My domain registration service already expired, and the domain is currently showing a third party site. Could I still renew the domain registration service with GlobalFront?

If your domain was using a registrar or registration service provider other than GlobalFront at the time of its expiration, then you would need to contact that registrar or registration service provider for renewal of your domain.  If GlobalFront was the registration service provider for your domain at the time of its expiration, and if the registrar has not imposed a redemption fee for renewal of the domain yet, if you act quickly, you might still be able to renew services for the domain.  To do so, please make a renewal payment that was requested for renewal of the domain service in your most recent invoice from GlobalFront, plus an additional $10.00 domain reactivation fee.  (Under some scenarios, if your domain(s) was/were in good payment status with GlobalFront prior to such deactivation, GlobalFront may renew domain services for you without requiring for the reactivation fee).  However, such renewals would be retroactively effective from the expiration date, so you won't get any credit for the days when your domain stayed deactivated for non-renewal on time.  If the registrar has already assessed a redemption fee for the domain, then we would require the additional redemption fee before renewal of the domain, or at our sole discretion, would refuse to renew the domain for you.  If we do not renew the domain, we will refund you the renewal fee received for such renewal request.

Q. I am not in monthly payment term, but I am not receiving renewal notices. What is happening?

Several email service and email software providers now automatically put incoming messages from unknown senders into your junk, spam or bulk mail folder instead of delivering them in your email inbox. To prevent this from happening to email messages being sent by GlobalFront to your email address, you would need to add GlobalFront's email address(es) to the address book or other white lists in your e-mail provider's system.  For step-by-step guidelines on how to do this with several most popular email providers, please click here.

Q. Do you collect Sales/Use taxes on purchased made at your site?

GlobalFront is registered in the states of Minnesota and Iowa to collect and remit sales/use taxes. If your billing address is in Iowa or Minnesota, then you would need to add, and/or authorize us to add, Minnesota State Sales Tax (6.875 percent) plus any additional Minnesota Local Taxes (if applicable), or Iowa Use Tax (6.00 percent) to the net total for all orders. (GlobalFront's Minnesota Sales/Use Tax Permit # is 8022142, and Iowa Use Tax Permit # is 2-00-151660).  You could search for rates of Minnesota Sales/Use Tax or Iowa Sales/Use Tax applicable to your zip code, if you are not sure about the tax rate for your location.

Q. I cannot access your secure online payment form(s). My browser shows an error when I try to access the link for "Pay by Credit Cards" on this page. What can I do?

If you are experiencing an error while trying to access secure online credit card payment page on our server (e.g., the credit card payment form), then you might want to check the version and security settings in your browser.  Due to security vulnerabilities, TLS 1.0, SSL 3, SSL 2 and older SSL protocols are no longer considered secure, and are not supported by our secure server for payment processing.  The following versions of browsers support TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.2, and can be used to access our secure online payment page that is linked through "Pay by Credit Cards" link on this page:

Mozilla Firefox versions 27-39 or above
Microsoft Internet Explorer versions 8-11 or above

If you are an Internet Explorer user, please click on "Tools", "Internet Options", "Advanced", and scroll all the way down to "Security" section, and make sure "Use TLS 1.2" or and/or "Use TLS 1.1" are checked, and older version of TLS 1.0 and SSL options are unchecked.  If your browser does not show TLS 1.2 or TLS 1.1, then it is best to upgrade your browser. Also, if your computer is behind a firewall, then that could also be the source of the problem. In that case, you may try using a computer that is not behind a firewall and that has a browser setting to support TLS 1.2.
