Paypal supported Web Hosting

Our suggestion is, avoid such hosting service and protect yourself from unauthorized charges. Many hosting services have auto renew configured and most of them are default choice if you don't configure it manually. That means when your account due, their system will auto charge based your existing payment details. There's no problem at all if you're going to use the hosting for the next one or two years.

If you used paypal to pay the service, they can not auto charge at all because you have to approve it before the fund is sent out.


Paypal should be your primary consideration if you have the choice. It will protect your funds as much as possible and simplify your experience in using hosting service. In case you have to deal with money back issue, it will save your time too. You don't have to go out office or call your banks to verify anything, all you need to do is logging into your paypal account and keep your sight on it.
