Guys, let's say you rent a dedicated server, or even keep vds.
Paid always correctly, but for some reason once you delay payment for one or two days and then pay?
How do you feel the need to act the host in this moment? Would have behaved like you are on the site hoster?

For a couple of days turned a blind eye to it? Blocked, but would be given the opportunity to continue the payment? Would delete the account, disassembled the server and formatted the screws?

How did your hoster?

Have you ever had a situation when you were late with a payment?

ps. And plus thank you all who responded on the merits. I need as many ideas as possible, even the same.

Of course it all depends on the "fat" client and the "friendliness" of the host. But I think a week the server should work even without pay, then a month to store the information pending payment. My hoster about it.

To report a non-payment on the soap, after a week if no payment disable access to the server and keep a backup in a month, you can backup and delete.

Even if the client is not warned about fees can be a time to continue to provide the service. You don't know the reason of non-payment. Maybe the client came to the hospital, it happened that, etc. the risk that the client will not pay, of course, but I don't think that to wait a week or a month for hosting is too expensive. But if the client then contacts You, You will get a very loyal customer who may recommend Your service to others.

If the client is warned that delaying payment, account is allocated a credit and it goes to minus.
After a couple of days pays and everything is fine. If not warned then stopem account and a month later removed.

In any case, do not disable. The server is more of a partnership than a service.
Anything can happen in humans — an error in the payment could be for example. And the server is spinning some mega-visited service.

the host sends the bill for the month (at us in Ukraine so usually) — so that the client may not know about the need to pay. If coming to the end of the paid period, then the Manager tries to call the client and find out what was the reason for the delay. If the customer answers the call and promises to pay (verbally), then a week the server is running. Then just shutdown and a month later the removal of all information (client can get its data back during this time, but it is a separate service and payment).
In General, in good, the client should be forewarned about problems with payment, at least in the last day by phone. But to expect it not to happen, unfortunately. Everyone wants to blame the host in bad faith while they themselves are white and fluffy.

The hosting "Majordomo" in any type of account, you can tick "hosting loan for 14 days", I sometimes use it, when you do not have time to pay.
In fact, the hosting provider from the extra unpaid weeks hosting neither hot nor cold.
