General Terms and Conditions
Terms and Conditions
This Registration Agreement ("Agreement") sets forth the terms and conditions of your use of domain name registration and related
services ("Services"). In this Agreement "you" and "your" refer to you and the registrant associated with the WHOIS contact information
for the domain name. "We", "us" and "our" refers to NameSilo, LLC.
YOUR AGREEMENT: By using the Services, you agree to all terms and conditions of this Agreement, the UDRP (defined below)
and any rules, policies, or agreements published in association with specific Services and/or which may be adopted or
enforced by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers ("ICANN"), any registry, or governments.
CHANGES TO THIS AGREEMENT: This Agreement may change over time, either through amendments by us, changes to ICANN policy
or applicable law which may or may not be reflected in the text of this Agreement, or otherwise. Before any material
changes to this Agreement become binding on you (other than changes resulting from a change in ICANN policy or applicable
law), we will notify you of such changes by, for example, sending email to you at your email address of record, or by
posting the changes on our web site. If, as a result of such a change, you no longer agree with the terms of this
Agreement, your exclusive remedies are (a) to transfer your domain name registration services to another registrar, or
(b) to cancel your domain name registration services with us. Your continued use of the Services following notification of
a change in this Agreement indicates your consent to the changes. Unless otherwise specified by us, any such change binds
you: (1) 30 days after we notify you of the change, or (2) immediately if such change is a result of a new or amended ICANN
policy or applicable law.
YOUR ACCOUNT: You must create an account to use the Services ("Account"). You are solely responsible for maintaining,
securing, updating, and keeping strictly confidential all login IDs and passwords, and for all access to and use of your
Account by you or any third party.
ACCOUNT CONTACT INFORMATION AND DOMAIN NAME WHOIS INFORMATION:
You must provide certain current, complete and accurate information about you with respect to your
Account information and with respect to the WHOIS information for your domain name(s). You must maintain
and update this information as needed to keep it current, complete and accurate. You must submit the
following with respect to you, the administrative, technical, and billing contacts for your domain name
registration(s) and other Services: the full name, postal address, e-mail address, voice telephone number,
and fax number if available of the Registered Name Holder; name of authorized person for contact purposes in
the case of an Registered Name Holder that is an organization, association, or corporation; and the data elements
listed in Subsections 220.127.116.11, 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 of the 2013 ICANN RAA. The type of information you are required to provide may
change and you must provide such information and keep your Account information current. Not providing
requested information may prevent you from obtaining all Services and you must update any such information
within seven (7) days of change.
You may provide information regarding the name-servers assigned to your domain name(s). If you do not
provide complete name-server information, we reserve the right to supply this information (and point your
domain name to a website of our choosing) until such time as you elect to supply the name-server
information. Any newly registered domain names will default to using our name-servers which will load our
default parking page, however, you have the ability to provide new name-server information by logging
into your account.
OBLIGATIONS RELATING TO THE ACCOUNT AND WHOIS CONTACT INFORMATION:
If, in obtaining Services, you provide information about or on behalf of a third party, you represent and
warrant that you have (a) provided notice to that third party of the disclosure and use of that party's
information as set forth in this Agreement, and (b) obtained the third party's express written or verbal
consent to the disclosure and use of that party's information as set forth in this Agreement.
You represent and warrant that the statements in your application are true and that no Services are being
procured for any unlawful purpose, including but not limited to the infringement of any intellectual
property right, the unauthorized transfer to yourself or any other party of any domain name or Services,
or the violation of any laws, rules, or regulations (the"Illegal Uses"). Providing inaccurate
information and willful failure to update information within seven (7) days of any change, or failure
to respond for over fifteen (15) days to inquiries concerning the accuracy of contact details associated with
your registration, failing to immediately update information or engaging in any Illegal Uses will constitute
an incurable material breach of this Agreement. Your failure to respond for over three (3) calendar days
to inquiries by us concerning the accuracy of Account and WHOIS contact information shall constitute an
incurable material breach of this Agreement.
You are responsible for regularly monitoring email sent to the email address in your Account. You may
lose your rights to the domain name(s) or your right to receive the Services if you do not respond
appropriately and timely to an email sent in conjunction therewith.
ACCESSING YOUR ACCOUNT:
In order to change any of your Account or domain name WHOIS information, you must access your Account
with us. It is your duty to safeguard your Account login identifier and password from any unauthorized
use. Any person in possession of your Account login identifier and password will have both the ability
and your authorization to modify your Account and domain name information, initiate transfers of your
domain name(s) to other registrars, initiate registrant changes to your domain names which may terminate
your rights to use such domain name(s), update DNS changes to your domain name(s) which may result in
changes to the content associated with your domain name(s) and take other actions which may affect or
terminate your rights and access to your domain name(s) and/or the Services.
We will take reasonable precautions to protect the information we obtain from you from loss, misuse,
unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration or destruction of that information and such reasonable
precautions include procedures for releasing Account access information to parties who claim to have
lost Account access information. If we take reasonable precautions in relation thereto, IN NO EVENT SHALL
WE BE LIABLE IF SUCH REASONABLE PRECAUTIONS DO NOT PREVENT THE UNAUTHORIZED USE OR MISUSE OF YOUR
ACCOUNT IDENTIFIER OR PASSWORD AND, EVEN IF WE FAIL TO TAKE REASONABLE PRECAUTIONS, OUR LIABILITY UNDER
ANY CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL BE LIMITED BY THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY PROVISION FOUND IN PARAGRAPH 13 BELOW
IN THIS AGREEMENT.
If you contact us alleging that a third party has unauthorized access to your Account or domain names,
we may charge you administrative fees, currently set at $100 (US dollars) per hour, for our time spent
in relation to the matter, regardless of whether or not we return control over the Account and/or domain
name(s) to you. You will indemnify us for any reasonable attorneys' fees and costs we may incur in
relation to the matter, even if those fees and costs accrue as a result of defending an action, or
responding to a threat of an action, initiated by You or a third party.
You have the ability to create Sub-User accounts as well. These Sub-User accounts allow the people you
designate to access certain functionality, including those listed in section c(i) above. You have the
option of configuring each Sub-User account to have access to any stored payment profiles as well as to
set an expiration date representing the revocation of that Sub-User's ability to access your account.
You are entirely responsible for any changes requested or made by any Sub-Users you create, and in no
event will we be responsible for any undesirable impact to you as a result of any such changes.
You are responsible for ensuring your beneficiaries have appropriate access to your NameSilo
account(s) in the event of your death or disability. We strongly encourage all account holders to
treat their domains like other important assets and to therefore implement a plan of succession upon
their inability to access their account. Failure to make the necessary provisions to ensure your
beneficiaries have access to your applicable NameSilo account(s) before your death or disability may
make accessing your account (including, but not limited to, account funds balance, domain names and
sale proceeds) impossible. Please be sure to also consider optional account security usage such as
2-Factor Authentication and Domain Defender. It is also very important that your account information
match documentation we may receive in the event of your death such as a death certificate. While we
may attempt to work with your beneficiaries to gain access to your account and associated account
assets, this is at our sole discretion. It is very difficult in many cases to prove important issues
concerning the rightful access to accounts by beneficiaries, and our first priority is the privacy
and security of our account holders. In the event we are able to work with a beneficiary to grant
account access, we reserve the right to lock domains for a period of time to be solely determined by
us. This lock may include, among other things, preventing changes, preventing transfer to a
different registrar and preventing transfer to a different account.
SHARING OF WHOIS INFORMATION:
We will make available the domain name registration information you provide or that we otherwise
maintain to the following parties: ICANN, any ICANN-authorized escrow service, the registry
administrator(s), and to other third parties as ICANN, registry administrators and applicable laws may
require or permit (including through web-based and other on-line WHOIS lookup systems), whether during
or after the term of your domain name registration services of the domain name. You irrevocably waive
any and all claims and causes of action you may have arising from such disclosure or use of such
information. We may make publicly available, or directly available to third parties, some, or all, of
the information you provide, for purposes of inspection (such as through our WHOIS service) or for
targeted marketing and other purposes as required or permitted by applicable laws, including by way of
bulk WHOIS data access provided to third parties who enter into a bulk WHOIS data access agreement with
us. We reserve the right to discontinue providing bulk WHOIS data access to third parties.
ICANN may establish or modify the guidelines, limits and/or requirements that relate to the amount and
type of information that we may or must make available to the public or to private entities, and the
manner in which such information is made available. Information regarding ICANN's guidelines and
requirements regarding WHOIS can be found at http://www.icann.org/registrars/wmrp.htm,
http://www.icann.org/registrars/wdrp.htm, and elsewhere on the ICANN website at http://www.icann.org/.
You consent to the data processing referred to above.
We will not process the Personal Data collected from you in a way incompatible with the
purposes and other limitations about which we provided notice to you within our terms.
DOMAIN NAME REGISTRATION.
We are accredited registrars with ICANN for generic Top Level Domain Names ("gTLDs") (such as .com,
.net, .org, etc.). ICANN oversees registrations and other aspects of the gTLDs. Domain name registrations
are not effective until the registry administrator puts them into effect. Domain name registrations are
only for limited terms which end on the expiration date. For domain names which are created as a new
registration out of the pool of available domain names, the term begins on the date the domain name
registration is acknowledged by the applicable registry. For domain name registrations which were not
returned to the pool of available domain names, the term begins on the date the previous registrant's
domain name registration was acknowledged by the applicable registry.
We are not liable or responsible in any way for any errors, omissions or any other actions by the
registry administrator arising out of or related to a request to register, renew, modify the settings
for, or transfer of a domain name registration. You acknowledge that domain name registration is a
service, domain name registrations do not exist independently from services provided pursuant to this or
a similar registration agreement with a registrar, domain name registration services do not create a
property interest and you have no such property interest in any domain name(s) which you may register
NOT INCLUDED IN THE DOMAIN NAME REGISTRATION SERVICES:
We are not responsible to determine whether the domain name(s) you select, or the use you or others make
of the domain name(s), or other use of the Services, infringes legal rights of others. It is your
responsibility to know whether or not the domain name(s) you select or use or allow others to use
infringe legal rights of others.
We might be ordered by a court or arbitrator to cancel, modify, or transfer your domain name; it is your
responsibility to list accurate contact information in association with your Account and to communicate
with litigants, potential litigants, and governmental authorities. It is not our responsibility to
forward court orders or other communications to you. Our policy is to comply with court orders from
courts of competent jurisdiction as well as UDRP Panel decisions. If you contact us informing us that you
are contesting a court order from a court of competent jurisdiction, we may, but are not obligated to,
place a transfer lock on the domain name pending the outcome of the dispute. If you contact us informing us
that you are contesting an adverse UDRP Panel decision, your time limits and procedures to do so are subject
to the requirements set forth in the UDRP. We may, but are not obligated to, delay implementation of a UDRP
Panel decision based solely on your informing us that you intend to contest the decision.
WHOIS PRIVACY: We offer a privacy service which substitutes your information with our default information within WHOIS. In
the event that you select to utilize this WHOIS Privacy service for one or more of your domains, the following applies:
The information you submit related to the various domain roles (registrant, administrative, technical and billing) will
remain associated with the domain at all times. We make no claims to the ownership or management of your domains when
selecting to use our WHOIS Privacy service.
The terms of this Agreement related to your responsibilities to maintain the accuracy of your contact information are not
altered or waived due to your use of this service.
We will provide information to WHOIS at our discretion which will hide your information. This information may reference
a WHOIS privacy service other than our name.
You authorize us, or the party referenced in the WHOIS record for your domains utilizing this service, to discard
any and all postal mail and electronic mail addressed to the address provided in WHOIS. We are not responsible for forwarding
any correspondence directed to your domain names. We will provide a mechanism for entities to make contact with you via
a web page that will be referenced in the private WHOIS records. It is entirely at our discretion to forward none, some or
all of the correspondence directed to you. We also provide a mechanism for you to enter the email address you
would like to use to receive email addressed to the email address in WHOIS for your private domains. We will use
our best efforts to forward any such email to the address you provide, but we make no guarantee that we will be
able to do so. You agree to provide an email address that complies with the rest of our terms or terms imposed by ICANN or the
respective domain registries.
You represent and warrant that your use of the WHOIS privacy service will be in good faith and that none of the
content found on any web sites or IP addresses associated with domains utilizing the WHOIS privacy service infringes
upon the legal rights of any third-party (including, but not limited to, any third-party's trademark, trade name or
copyrighted material), and that none of the content is, or is connected to, terrorism, impersonation of a third-party,
illegal activities or the transmission of spam, viruses, trojan horses or any other harmful routine or data.
WHOIS privacy is not available for .us domains.
The "AGENTS AND LICENSES" policies covered below also apply to your use of WHOIS Privacy.
We reserve the right in our sole judgment to suspend, terminate and/or disclose your personal information in the
event that any of the following occur:
- Any provision of this Agreement is breached
- If necessary to comply with applicable laws, subpoenas, court orders, a UDRP action or action initiated by any other entity with appropriate jurisdiction
- If we deem that continuing to provide WHOIS privacy services places us in any jeopardy of of harm including financial loss or legal liability on our behalf or on the behalf of any of our partners, affiliates, employees or managers
- If we believe you have not completely abided by your representations and warranties listed in this Agreement
In the event that we or a third-party believe you to be infringing upon any part of this Agreement, we will
contact you at the email address associated with your account. It is your responsibility to reply to any
such communication within three (3) days. We are not responsible for any failure to deliver any such notification
as things beyond our control may occur that could prevent delivery. If you fail to reply within the given time frame,
or if, in our sole judgment, we believe your reply does not adequately address the points raised in our email, we
reserve the right to immediately release your contact information and to suspend or terminate the WHOIS privacy service.
This would result in your information being made available via WHOIS. You further agree that we disclaim any liability
arising out of undertaking this action and any direct or indirect consequences experienced as a result of releasing
your information or suspending or terminating the WHOIS privacy service.
In addition to all other indemnity clauses in this Agreement, you agree to defend, release, and indemnify
us, ICANN, the registry operators as well as any of our employees, agents, affiliates, partners
and managers for any third-party claims arising out of your usage of the WHOIS privacy services.
PARKED DOMAINS: We offer a service to park your domains. In choosing to park your domains with us, we will create and
host a mini-site that will be displayed any time there is a visitor to your domain. Any domains that you park with us
will automatically have their nameservers adjusted to our default settings, so please make sure you understand that
any then-existing services for your domains prior to the nameserver change will stop functioning.
Ads will be displayed on your parked mini-sites. You will have the opportunity to have ads inserted from your advertising
account which will allow you to keep 100% of that advertising revenue. If you fail to configure one or more of the
available ad slots, we will have the option of serving our own ads which will entitle us to all of those advertising
You will also be able to configure your parked pages to include your own content as well as content that we make available.
Parking your domains with us implies your acceptance of the following points:
You will not add any profanity, copyrighted content, or anything else, which in our sole discretion, is harmful,
profane or illegal.
We reserve the right to remove or modify your parked domain status or any content on your parked mini-sites at any
time and for any reason. Although not obligated to do so, in such an event we will make a reasonable effort to contact
you to let you know about our decision and to either give you time to change the offending content, or to make other
plans for the use of your domain name.
DOMAIN DEFENDER: We offer a service called Domain Defender which you can optionally enable for your account. This service
allows you to add extra security to your account by selecting supplemental security questions and associated answers that
must be answered before making changes through your account. Additionally, you can configure the service to optionally send
you e-mail and/or text messages upon the completion of certain changes to your domains. Your use of this service is entirely
optional, but, if you choose to enable the service, the following applies:
We make NO CLAIM that use of the service will prevent misuse of your account or unintended changes to your domains. Your
responsibilities within this Agreement to secure your account are still in force.
If you select to receive text message notifications, you understand that all messaging rates imposed by your carrier will
We are not responsible for any notifications that you do not receive, including but not limited to, emails that are caught
in an anti-spam system and text messages not delivered by your carrier.
Even with this service enabled, we still highly recommend locking all of your domains.
SERVICES PROVIDED AT WILL; TERMINATION OR SUSPENSION OF SERVICES:
We may reject your domain name registration application or elect to discontinue providing Services to you for any reason within 30 days of a Service initiation or a Service renewal. Outside of this period, we may terminate or suspend the Services at any time for cause, which, without limitation, includes (i) registration of prohibited domain name(s), (ii) abuse of the Services, (iii) payment irregularities, (iv) illegal conduct, (v) failure to keep your Account or WHOIS information accurate and up to date, (vi) failure to respond to inquiries from us for over three (3) calendar days, (vii) if your use of the Services involves us in a violation of any third party's rights or acceptable use policies, including but not limited to the transmission of unsolicited email, the violation of any copyright, or the distribution of any form of malware (defined to include, without limitation, malicious code or software that might affect the operation of the Internet), (viii) to comply with any applicable court orders, laws, government rules or requirements, requests of law enforcement or other governmental agency or organization, or any dispute resolution process, (ix) to avoid any liability, civil or criminal, on the part of us, as, well as its affiliates, subsidiaries, officers, directors, and employees, (x) to protect the integrity, security and stability of the Domain Name system (DNS), or (xi) failure to respond to inquiries from us regarding payment inquiries for over 24 hours.
Prohibited domain names and illegal activities which may be subject to these provisions include, but are not limited to:
- Domains and web sites prohibited by the laws of the United States and/or foreign territories in which you conduct business
- Domains and web sites designed to encourage unlawful behavior by others, such as hate crimes, terrorism and child pornography
- Domains and web sites that are tortious or invasive of the privacy of a third party
- Domains and web sites designed to harm or use unethically minors in any way
- Domains and web sites engaging in, promoting or facilitating phishing attacks
- Domains and web sites involved in the transmission of unsolicited email
- Domains and web sites involved in unauthorized repetitive, high volume inquires into any of the services provided by us or a third-party
- Domains and web sites involved in copyright and/or trademark infringement
- Domains transferred illegally from a different registrar without the previous Registrant's knowledge
REFUNDS WILL NOT BE ISSUED IF YOUR SERVICES ARE SUSPENDED FOR CAUSE PER THIS AGREEMENT.
THERE ARE ABSOLUTELY NO REFUNDS FOR BITCOIN PURCHASES.
If we determine that your account is engaged in repeated abuse of this Agreement then we may elect to terminate your
entire account and all domains within your account.
You may cancel any domain registration (other than domains registered via drop-catching) with us within three (3) days of purchase for a full refund (minus any applicable transaction fees). You may cancel
at any time after the three-day period, but no refund will be issued. To cancel a domain name, please log in to your account and visit the Order History page.
Your refund will be issued back to the method of payment used to make the registration purchase. The total refund amount may be reduced by any transaction fees
that we incurred as part of the initial transaction and/or the issuance of the refund. All refunds will go back to the source of the
Important note regarding domain registration refunds. At our sole discretion, we may choose not to issue
a domain registration refund if we believe you to be engaged in "domain tasting" or some other activity resulting
in an abnormal number of cancellations. More specifically, if, in
our sole discretion, we believe you to be engaged in a high volume or irregular number of registrations and subsequent cancellations,
we may opt not to refund your money. In the event we believe you to be engaged in such activity, we will make an
effort to issue one warning via email to you prior to disallowing further refunds for your account, but
we are not obligated to do so.
You may cancel domain renewals (other than renewals associated with Expired Domain Auctions) with us within three (3) days of purchase for a full refund (minus any applicable transaction fees). If you transfer your
domain within 45 days of a domain renewal, you may not be entitled to a refund and you may also not receive any
extended registration time on your domain. ALL DOMAIN RENEWAL CANCELLATIONS, OTHER THAN CERTAIN AUTOMATIC RENEWALS,
WILL RESULT IN YOUR DOMAIN BEING DELETED AND PLACED INTO THE REDEMPTION PERIOD AT THE REGISTRY. THIS MEANS THAT
YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO RENEW THE DOMAIN WITH US WITHOUT PAYING FOR A RESTORATION, OR POSSIBLY NOT AT ALL. IF YOU
HAVE TIME REMAINING ON YOUR REGISTRATION IT WILL BE SACRIFICED IN TOTAL WHEN RECEIVING A RENEWAL REFUND.
Important note regarding domain renewal refunds. At our sole discretion, we may choose not to issue
a domain renewal refund if your cancellation rate surpasses the ratios set by our system.
Sorry, but refunds are not available for restorations, completed transfers, Sedo premium domains, Afternic premium domains, domain auctions and marketplace purchases or Bitcoin purchases.
If we terminate or suspend the Services provided to you under this Agreement, we may then, at our option, make either
ourselves or a third party the beneficiary of Services which are substantially similar to those which were previously
provided to you. If we have grounds to terminate or suspend Services with respect to one domain name or in relation to
other Services provided through your Account, we may terminate or suspend all Services provided through your Account.
No fee refund will be made when there is a suspension or termination of Services for cause.
At any time and for any reason, we may terminate the Services thirty (30) days after we send notice of termination via
mail or email, at our option, to the WHOIS contact information provided in association with your domain name
registration. Following notice of termination other than for cause, you must transfer your domain name within such
thirty (30) day notice period or risk that we may delete your domain name, transfer the registration services
associated with your domain name to ourselves or a third party, or suspend or modify Services related to your domain
name. If we terminate Services for a reason other than cause, we will provide a pro-rata refund of your fees.
Your registration of a domain name is subject to suspension, cancellation or transfer by any ICANN procedure now in
affect or which may come into affect at a later date, by any registrar or registry administrator procedures approved by
an ICANN-adopted policy or any policy adopted by any ccTLD registry or governing body, to correct mistakes by us,
another registrar or the registry administrator in administering the domain name or for the resolution of disputes
concerning the domain name or as a result of any government decree, rule, law or regulation. This includes, but is not
limited to, ICANN's WHOIS ACCURACY PROGRAM SPECIFICATION which requires that we deactivate any domains for which we
have not received verification of Registrant email address within 15 days of notification.
FEES: You agree to pay, prior to the effectiveness of the desired Services, the applicable Service fees set forth during the
registration process or otherwise communicated to you by us. In the event any of the fees for Services change, we will use
reasonable efforts to give you thirty (30) days prior notice of such a change. All fees are non-refundable, in whole or in
part, even if your domain name registration is suspended, cancelled or transferred prior to the end of your then current
registration term, unless this Agreement specifically provides for a refund. At our option, we may require that you pay fees
through a particular payment means (such as by credit card or by wire transfer) or that you change from one payment provider to
PREMIUM DOMAINS: Please note that it is possible that the pricing shown on our web site's pricing or search results
pages may not be the actual price for a registation, transfer or renewal. This happens when the registry for a domain determines
that a specific domain is a "premium domain". If this happens, our system will notify you and update the pricing in your shopping
cart as soon as the domain is added. We recommend always checking the price in the shopping cart when adding to or changing your
PAYMENT ISSUES: In the event of a charge back, or if we have belief in an imminent charge back, by a credit card company, credit card holder,
or similar action by another payment provider, including, but not limited to PayPal, Payza or Skrill investigations, allowed
by us in connection with your payment of fees for any Services, we may suspend access to any and all Accounts you have with
us and all interests in and use of any domain name registration services. We may cancel any order(s) associated with anything covered
in this section, but may not provide a refund. We may
reinstate your rights to and control over these Services solely at our discretion, and potentially subject to our receipt of the unpaid
fees and our then-current reinstatement fee as otherwise communicated to you by us. If you have an issue with credit card or
other payment charges, you should contact us regarding the issue before you contact your credit card or other payment process
company to request a charge back or reversal of the charges.
EXPIRATION AND RENEWAL OF SERVICES: It is your responsibility to keep your own records and to maintain your own reminders
regarding when your domain name registration or other Services are set to expire and to maintain current and accurate credit
card information should any Services be placed on "auto-renew." As a convenience to you, and not as a binding commitment, we
may notify you via an email message or via your Account when renewal fees are due. Should these fees go unpaid, your Services
will expire or be cancelled. Payment must be made by credit card, account funds, Paypal, or such other method as we may
allow or require from time to time. If you select automatic renewal of the Services, we may attempt to renew the Services a
reasonable time before expiration, provided your billing information is available and up to date. It is your responsibility
to keep your billing information up to date and we are not required to, but may, contact you to update this information in
the event that an attempted transaction is not processed successfully.
EXPIRATION OF A DOMAIN NAME REGISTRATION: Immediately after the expiration of the term of domain name registration services and
before deletion of the domain name in the applicable registry's database, we may stop publishing zone files for your domain, direct
the domain name to name-servers and IP address(es) designated by us, including, without limitation, to no IP address or to IP
address(es) which host a parking page or a commercial search engine that may display advertisements, and we may either leave your
WHOIS information intact or we may change the contact information in the WHOIS output for the expired domain name so that you are
no longer the listed registrant of the expired domain name.
Reactivation Period Process. For a period of approximately 30 days after expiration of the term of domain name registration
services, we may provide a procedure by which expired domain name registration services may be renewed. We may, but are not
obligated to, offer this process, called the "reactivation period." You assume all risks and all consequences if you wait
until close to or after the expiration of the original term of domain name registration services to attempt to renew the
domain name registration services. We may, in our sole discretion, choose not to offer a reactivation period and we shall
not be liable therefore. The reactivation period renewal process, if any, may involve additional fees which we will solely
determine. We may make expired domain name services(s) available to third parties, we may auction off the rights to expired
domain name services, and/or expired domain name registration services may be re-registered to any party at any time.
- You can find our renewal pricing on our pricing page
- You can find our restoration/redemption pricing and our schedule to deliver pre- and pos-expiraiton notifications
on our expiration process page
If you select to deactivate your domain name, we reserve the right to place any such deactivated domain names into
our expired domain marketplace upon expiraiton. As with all expired domain marketplace sales, you will not receive
any compensation if the domain sells.
After the reactivation period, we may:
Discontinue the domain name registration services at any time thereafter without notice. In which case, certain
registry administrators may provide procedures by which discontinued domain name registration services may
nonetheless be renewed. We may, but are not obligated to, participate in this process, typically called the
"Redemption Grace Period" ("RGP"). We may, in our sole discretion, choose not to participate in the RGP process
with respect to any or all of your domain name registration services and we shall not be liable therefore. If
available, RGP typically ends between 30 and 42 days after the end of the reactivation period of the domain name
services. We are not obliged to contact you to alert you that the domain name registration services are being
Pay the registry's registration fee or otherwise provide for the registration services to be continued. In which
case, we may then set the name-servers and the DNS settings for the domain name services, we may set the DNS to
point to no IP address or to IP address(es) which host parking page(s) or a commercial search engine that may
display paid advertisements, and we may change the contact information in the WHOIS output for the expired domain
name so that you are no longer the listed registrant of the expired domain name. We do not have to pay you any of
the proceeds we may earn as a result. We are not obliged to contact you to alert you that the domain name
registration services are being continued. The domain name will be designated as being in the extended redemption
grace period ("ERGP"), and you will be allowed to assume, during the first 120 days of the then extant registration
term, complete management of the domain name services, including the right to control the DNS settings, provided
that you pay the fees we set forth plus any registration fees. After the end of the 120-day period, if you do not
exercise your rights under this provision, you have abandoned the domain name services, and relinquish all interests
and use of the domain name services; or
Auction the domain name to a third party which entails transferring the domain name registration services to
such third party. In which case, the third party who won the auction for the domain name services will become the
new Registrant of the domain name, and you will lose any claim to that domain. In the event we auction your domain
and assign it to a third-party, we may, but are not required to, inform you that such a transition has occurred. You
can find our domain expiration process listed on our web site, and it remains your responsibility to renew your
domain names on time to avoid losing them.
Transfer of your domain name(s) services shall be governed by ICANN's transfer policy, available at
http://www.icann.org/transfers/, including the Registrar Transfer Dispute Resolution Policy, available at
https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/transfer-policy-2016-06-01-en as well as the UDRP as described in the Dispute
Resolution Policy of this Agreement, as these policies may be modified from time to time. To transfer your domain name(s)
you should first login to your Account to lock or unlock your domain name(s) and/or to obtain the EPP "AuthCode" which is
required to transfer domain services in an EPP registry (such as .org). Only the registrant and the administrative contacts
listed in the WHOIS information may approve or deny a transfer request. Without limitation, domain name services may not be
transferred within 60 days of initial registration, within 60 days of a transfer, if there is a dispute regarding the
identity of the domain name registrant, if you are bankrupt, or if you fail to pay fees when due. We will follow the
procedures for both gaining and losing registrars as outlined in ICANN's transfer policies. A transfer will not be
processed if, during this time, the domain name registration services expire, in which event you may need to reinstate the
transfer request following a redemption of the domain name, if any. You may be required to resubmit a transfer request if
there is a communication failure or other problem at either our end or at the registry. YOU ASSUME ALL RISK FOR FAILURE OF A
TRANSFER WHETHER OR NOT THE TRANSFER PROCESS IS INITIATED CLOSE TO THE END OF A REGISTRATION TERM.
We may place a "Registrar Lock" on your domain name services and this will prevent your domain name services from being
transferred without your authorization, though we are not required to do so. By allowing your domain name services to remain
locked, you provide express objection to any and all transfer requests until the lock is removed.
You may cancel incoming transfer requests at any time before they are completed up to 59 calendar days from the initial
transfer order. Canceling a transfer request will entitle you to a refund of the transfer cost, minus processing fees.
YOU WILL NOT BE ENTITLED TO A REFUND IF YOU CANCEL YOUR TRANSFER REQUEST AFTER THE 59 DAY TIME LIMIT.
In the event we receive a request from a different registrar to transfer your domain away, you may be presented with an option
to approve the transfer without waiting the standard 5-7 days for registry release. Any such approval grants us the right to approve
the transfer immediately. We also reserve the right to approve outbound transfers at any time during the transfer process. In the
event either you or we approve an outbound transfer, the transfer will complete within 15 minutes.
Certain transfers may not be eligible for the 1-year extension associated with most transfers. For example,
domains renewed within 45 days of transfer or domains already registered for more than 9 years will not get
extended by a year upon transfer completion. Registries apply the extra year, registrars do not. Therefore,
if the registry is unable to extend the expiration by a year, then one year will not be added to your
DNS SERVICES: The Domain Name System (DNS) is a hierarchical naming system built on a distributed database for computers, services,
or any resource connected to the Internet or a private network. It associates various information with domain names assigned to each
of the participating entities. Most importantly, it translates domain names meaningful to humans into the numerical identifiers
associated with networking equipment for the purpose of locating and addressing these devices worldwide.
As a convenience to our customers, we offer DNS hosting service with all domain registrations. Use of this service is entirely
optional. You may opt to use another DNS service provider at any time by associating different authoritative name servers with the
applicable domains as needed. By using the DNS service we offer, you hereby acknowledge and agree to the following:
DNS is a critical service responsible for all facets of domain use. Incorrect configuration of DNS as it relates to your
domains can lead to problems such as:
- Web site(s) not loading
- Email can stop working
You should only make DNS modifications if you fully understand the implications of doing so, understand how DNS works, have
the technical expertise to verify the modifications were propagated properly to the associated authoritative name servers,
and are prepared to fully test the impact of the modifications as soon as they take effect.
We make absolutely no guarantee whatsoever related to the DNS hosting service. If you need a service level agreement
guaranteeing minimum performance or reliability levels, you should use a different DNS service provider who offers such
DNS is a globally distributed database with many interconnected components - the vast majority of which are NOT directly or
indirectly under our control. Problems can occur anywhere in the system.
Many of the distributed nodes in DNS, commonly referred to as recursive resolvers, cache DNS resource records for the time
recommended by our authoritative name servers (controlled via the TTL value), or for any amount of time they are configured
to do so (they can ignore our recommended time). As a result, changes made to DNS records through us will not immediately
propagate to your local systems - the delay can be as long as the maximum TTL setting on the associated records, or longer.
We, at our sole discretion, reserve the right to provide additional support for DNS related matters, or no support at all.
Upon domain deletion, domain expiration, transfer of a domain (away from us), and/or the cancellation/termination/suspension/deletion of your account(s), DNS service for the associated domain(s) and/or account(s) will be terminated. It is entirely your responsibility to make alternative DNS service arrangements prior and/or after termination of DNS service as needed if said termination could affect you in any way.
We, at our sole discretion, reserve the right to make any changes to DNS records we deem necessary to protect the stability of our system.
DNS Service Disclaimer of Warranty
THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE DNS SERVICE, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING
WE PROVIDE THE DNS SERVICE "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO,
THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF
THE DNS SERVICE IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE DNS SERVICE PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR
DNS Service Indemnification
We use the systems of a third party, DNSOwl.com, to provide all DNS services. You agree to indemnify, defend and hold
harmless DNSOwl.com, and its directors, officers, employees, agents, and affiliates from and against any and all claims, damages,
liabilities, costs and expenses, including reasonable legal fees and expenses arising out of or relating to your domains and/or any
DNS related matter.
OWNERSHIP OF INFORMATION AND DATA: We own all database, compilation, collective and similar rights, title and interests worldwide in
our domain name database, and all information and derivative works generated from the domain name database. We own the following
information for those registrations for which we are the registrar: (a) the original creation date of the registration, (b) the
expiration date of the registration, (c) the name, postal address, e-mail address, voice telephone number, and where available fax
number of the registrant and all contacts for the domain name registration, (d) any remarks concerning the registered domain name
that appear or should appear in the WHOIS or similar database, and (e) any other information we generate or obtain in connection
with the provision of Services, other than the domain name being registered, the IP addresses of the primary nameserver and any
secondary nameservers for the domain name, and the corresponding names of those nameservers. We do not have any ownership interest
in your specific personal registration information outside of our rights in our domain name database.
AGENTS AND LICENSES: If you are registering a domain name for or on behalf of someone else, you represent that you have the
authority to bind that person as a principal to all terms and conditions provided herein. If you license the use of a domain name
you register to us or a to third party, you remain the domain name holder of record, and remain responsible for all obligations at
law and under this Agreement, including but not limited to payment obligations, and providing (and updating, as necessary) both your
own full contact information, and accurate technical, administrative, billing and zone contact information adequate to facilitate
timely resolution of any problems that arise in connection with the domain name and domain name registration and for ensuring
non-infringement of any third party intellectual property rights. You further agree to accept liability for harm caused by wrongful use
of the Registered Name, unless you disclose the current contact information provided by the licensee and the identity of the licensee
within seven (7) days to a party providing the Registered Name Holder reasonable evidence of actionable harm.
You authorize us to serve as your "Designated Agent" permitting us to approve any "Change of Registrant". The terms
"Designated Agent" and "Change of Registrant" used in this Section are defined in the ICANN transfer policy seen
here. Due to your
authorization for us to serve as your "Designated Agent", Registrants will not need to receive an email concerning the
change, and will also not need to confirm the change via email. We will instead auto-approve any "Changes of Registrant".
You further explicity opt-out of an inter-registrar transfer lock as would otherwise have been required per the ICANN
transfer policy linked to above.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY: WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY (a) SUSPENSION OR LOSS OF THE SERVICES, (b) USE OF THE SERVICES, (c)
INTERRUPTION OF SERVICES OR INTERRUPTION OF YOUR BUSINESS, (d) ACCESS DELAYS OR ACCESS INTERRUPTIONS TO OUR WEB SITE(S) OR SERVICES

INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND (INCLUDING LOST PROFITS) REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION WHETHER IN CONTRACT,
TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT SHALL OUR
MAXIMUM AGGREGATE LIABILITY EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNT PAID BY YOU FOR SERVICES, AND IN NO EVENT SHALL OUR LIABILITY BE GREATER THAN
$200.00 (US Dollars). BECAUSE SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL
DAMAGES, IN SUCH STATES, OUR LIABILITY SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.

as well as the contractors, agents, employees, officers, directors, shareholders, and affiliates of such parties harmless from and

third party claims relating to or arising under this Agreement, including any breach of any of your representations, warranties,
covenants or obligations set forth in this Agreement, the Services provided hereunder (including, but not limited to WHOIS privacy), or your use of the Services, including,
without limitation, infringement by you, or by anyone else using the Services, of any intellectual property or other proprietary
right of any person or entity, or from the violation of any of our or ICANN's operating rules or policies relating to the Services
provided. We may seek written assurances from you in which you promise to indemnify and hold us harmless from the costs and
liabilities described in this paragraph. Such written assurances may include, in our sole discretion, the posting of a performance
bond(s) or other guarantees reasonably calculated to guarantee payment. Your failure to provide such assurances may be considered by
us to be a breach of this Agreement by you and may, in our sole discretion, result in loss of your right to control the disposition
of domain name Services for which you are the registrant and in relation to which we are the registrar of record. This
indemnification is in addition to any indemnification (a) required under the UDRP or any other ICANN policy or any policy of any
relevant registry; or (b) set forth elsewhere in this Agreement.

Terms and conditions specific to .BIZ domain registrations
Registrations in the .BIZ TLD must be used or intended to be used primarily for bona fide business or commercial purposes. For purposes of
the .BIZ Registration Restrictions ("Restrictions"), "bona fide business or commercial use" shall mean the bona fide use or bona fide intent
to use the domain name or any content, software, materials, graphics or other information thereon, to permit Internet users to access one
(1) or more host computers through the DNS:
To exchange goods, services, or property of any kind;
In the ordinary course of trade or business; or
To facilitate (i) the exchange of goods, services, information, or property of any kind; or, (ii) the ordinary course of trade or
business. Registering a domain name solely for the purposes of (1) selling, trading or leasing the domain name for compensation, or
(2) the unsolicited offering to sell, trade or lease the domain name for compensation shall not constitute a "bona fide business or
commercial use" of that domain name.
As a .BIZ domain name registrant, You hereby certify to the best of Your knowledge that:
Domain Name Dispute Policy
The registered domain name will be used primarily for bona fide business or commercial purposes and not (i) exclusively for personal
use; or (ii) solely for the purposes of (1) selling, trading or leasing the domain name for compensation, or (2) the unsolicited

If You reserved or registered a .BIZ domain name through us, You agree to be bound by our current domain name dispute policy that is

documents, as they may be amended from time to time, which are hereby incorporated and made an integral part of this Agreement:
The Uniform Domain Name Dispute Policy;
The Start-up Trademark Opposition Policy ("STOP"); and
The Restrictions Dispute Resolution Criteria and Rules.
The STOP sets forth the terms and conditions in connection with a dispute between a registrant of a .BIZ domain name ("Registrant") with any
third party (other than Registry Operator or Registrar) over the registration or use of a .BIZ domain name registered by Registrant that is
subject to the Intellectual Property Claim Service. The Intellectual Property Claim Service is a service introduced by Registry Operator to
notify a trademark or service mark holder ("Claimant") that a second-level domain name has been registered in which that Claimant claims
intellectual property rights. In accordance with the STOP and its associated Rules, those Claimants will have the right to challenge
registrations through independent ICANN-accredited dispute resolution providers.
The UDRP sets forth the terms and conditions in connection with a dispute between a Registrant and any party other than the Registry
Operator or Registrar over the registration and use of an Internet domain name registered by Registrant.
The RDRP sets forth the terms under which any allegation that a domain name is not used primarily for business or commercial purposes shall
be enforced on a case-by-case, fact specific basis by an independent ICANN-accredited dispute provider. None of the violations of the
Restrictions will be enforced directly by or through Registry Operator. Registry Operator will not review, monitor, or otherwise verify that
any particular domain name is being used primarily for business or commercial purposes or that a domain name is being used in compliance
with the SUDRP or UDRP processes.
Domain Name Dispute Policy Modifications
You agree that we, in our sole discretion, may modify our dispute policy. We will post any such revised policy on our web site at least
thirty (30) calendar days before it becomes effective. You agree that, by maintaining the reservation or registration of Your domain name

to any such modification, You may terminate this Agreement. We will not refund any fees paid by You if You terminate Your Agreement with us.

specified in our dispute policy in effect at the time of the dispute. You agree that in the event a domain name dispute arises with any
third party, You will indemnify and hold us harmless pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth below in this Agreement. If we are
notified that a complaint has been filed with a judicial or administrative body regarding Your use of our domain name registration services,
You agree not to make any changes to Your domain name record without our prior approval. We may not allow You to make changes to such domain
name record until (i) we are directed to do so by the judicial or administrative body, or (ii) we receive notification by You and the other
party contesting Your registration and use of our domain name registration services that the dispute has been settled. Furthermore, You
