This Registration Agreement (“Agreement”) sets forth the terms and conditions of your use of the domain name registration functionality and related services (“Services”). In this Agreement “you” and “your” refer to you and the registrant listed in the WHOIS contact information for the domain name. “We”, “us” and “our” refer to the registrars listed at the bottom of this document, any one of which will be the registrar for your domain name and all of which share common ownership, common terms and conditions, and a shared Services infrastructure. To determine which registrar your domain name is registered with, you can perform a WHOIS lookup at You obtain the Services through your primary service provider, with whom we have a wholesale relationship (your “Primary Service Provider”). Your relationship with your Primary Service Provider may be governed by additional terms, as you and your Primary Service Provider may agree. “We,” “us” and “our” does not include your Primary Service Provider, except when specifically mentioned or unless your Primary Service Provider is one of us (i.e. if your Primary Service Provider is also one of the registrars listed at the bottom of this document).

  1. YOUR AGREEMENT: By using the Services, you agree to all terms and conditions of this Agreement, the UDRP (defined below), the URS (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.
  1. 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. Before any material changes to this Agreement become binding (other than changes resulting from a change in ICANN policy or applicable law), we or Your Primary Service Provider will notify you of such changes by, for example, sending an email to you at your email address of record. 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 Services, including 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) thirty (30) days after we or Your Primary Service Provider notify you of the change, or (2) immediately if the change is the result of a new or amended ICANN policy or applicable law.
  1. REGISTRANT RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES: ICANN has developed, in conjunction with registrars, a webpage that identifies important registrant rights and responsibilities. The document provides a “plain language” summary of the terms related to Registrant Rights and Responsibilities as set out in the Registrar Accreditation Agreement (RAA), for posting on registrar websites. While some of the terms included do not specifically refer to registrants, those terms are included because of the potential import to understanding registrar/registrant relations. The document also summarizes registrant rights and responsibilities that arise within ICANN Consensus Policies and specifications, as those policies and specifications are incorporated into the RAA. The summarization of terms within this document does not override or replace the terms set forth in the RAA or within those specifications or policy. Please review these important Registrant Rights and Responsibilities.
  2. YOUR ACCOUNT: You must create an account to use the Services (“Account”). Your Account is typically managed and/or provided by your Primary Service Provider. 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.
      1. You must provide current, complete and accurate information about you with respect to your Account as well as the WHOIS information for your domain name(s). In the event that the provided information becomes outdated, you must update it within seven days in order to keep it current, complete and accurate. You must submit the following with respect to your personal information as well as the administrative, technical, and billing contacts for your domain name registration(s) and other Services: name, postal address, e-mail address, voice telephone number, and where available, fax number. The type of information you are required to provide may change and you must provide such information and keep your Account information current.

Providing inaccurate or unreliable information, failing to update information within seven (7) days of any change, engaging in any Illegal Uses, or failing to respond for over fifteen (15) days to inquiries by us concerning the accuracy of Account and WHOIS contact information will constitute an unamenable material breach of this Agreement and be a basis for suspension and/or cancellation of the Services.

      1. 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. We also are registrars for a variety of country code top-level domain names (“ccTLDs”) (such as, .de, etc.). For a partial list of registry administrators and for more information on gTLDs, see 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 registration ends..US domain requirements (NEXUS)There are additional contact attributes required:

        .DE domain requirements

        Should you seek to register a .DE second level domain name you, the registrant, must also agree to the requirements of the .DE registration terms and conditions in German (an English translation is available for the convenience of English speakers, but the terms as they are found in the original German agreement are the actual authoritative and legally binding documentation).

        You should be aware that the terms to register a second level domain in the .DE namespace are not strictly and finally documented. For example, fees for a second level domain registration in the .DE namespace are charged on a monthly basis. Registrars, however, may provide fee payment services which would allow you to pre-pay for longer time periods. If you pre-pay for a longer period of time, you will not be given a refund by this registrar if you decide to cancel your registration prior to the end of your pre-paid period. Also, a second level domain registration in the .DE namespace is for life, though you may cancel your registration by providing one month’s notice to DENIC. If you do not cancel your registration with DENIC and you stop paying the required registration fees to this registrar, then this registrar will stop making payments to DENIC on your behalf; in this case, DENIC may attempt to bill you directly (and not through this registrar). After a certain period of non-payment, DENIC may then terminate your domain name registration, though it is not clear whether you would also be released from the obligation to pay the registration fees incurred prior to the termination by DENIC. If you stop paying the required registration fees, this registrar may, but is not required to, terminate your .DE domain name registration on your behalf. It is not clear whether these terms are spelled out for prospective .DE registrants, so you are encouraged to perform your own due diligence to your own satisfaction before making the decision to register a second level domain registration in the .DE namespace.

        NO Guarantee of domain registration or successful renewal on free web hosting accounts
        IMPORTANT NOTICE: The Free web hosting platform is still in Development (Beta mode) and as such there are likely to be some minor defects in the system. Please note that we will do our best to provide you with decent service, however we can NOT provide any guarantee whatsoever that we will be able to register or renew your domain successfully if you are hosted on the free web hosting platform, even if you have paid for your domain registration or renewal service.

        Domain Renewal Notifications and Orders

        Our system sends e-mail notifications 30, 15, 10, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 days prior to the domain’s expiration date. You are invited to renew your domain on time and if any TLD-specific renewal rules are applied, we include them in these e-mails.

        We strongly recommend that you renew your domain a minimum of 48 hours prior to its expiration date. It is very important to understand that once you submit the order, it is being processed by the payment gateway, verified by our sales representatives and finally the system is sending your domain for renewal to our partnering domain registrar. This process takes time and we encourage you to be proactive and submit your renewal order early so you are sure that the payment and renewal process will be handled on time.

Transfer details

45 days rule
The 45-days transfer rule says: Due to a registry restriction(not eNom or any other registrar, but the global registry), if a domain is renewed and then transferred to another registrar within the first 45 days since the renewal, the domain will not have an additional year added to the expiration date.

.org 60 days restriction
Due to a registry restriction (Public Interest Registry;, .org domains have a 60-day transfer restriction. If a .org domain has been transferred between registrars, the Public Interest Registry does not allow a transfer of the domain for 60 days since the date the transfer was complete.,, .uk 3 months rule
For,, .uk successful transfers where the domain name has more than 3 months remaining to expiration, the domain is not renewed for two years, but just transferred. If the domain is due to be renewed in 3 months or less, the domain will be renewed for 2 years.

.co transfer rules
– Transfers of .CO domains are not permitted within the first 60 days of registration.
– Transfers of .CO domains are not permitted within 60 days of a previous transfer.
– Successful transfers will result in a one-year domain name renewal.

Renewal details
Certain domain names, like .EU.DE.BE and .JP can only be renewed via the auto-renew process.  Therefore, the auto-renew should be set to ‘ON’ with our registrar, if you would like these domains to be renewed at all.

This means, you have to pay/renew your domain in the last 30 days before its expiration date, which will set the auto-renew status to “ON” for your domain so that the registry can process the domain renewal.

We need to stress that any .EU.DE.BE and .JP domains which are not renewed prior the expiration date, then there is a chance you will not be able to get the domain back.

up to 10 years maximum renewal 
Domain names can be registered for a maximum of 10 years. If your domain has not yet expired, you will be able to renew it for 9 years at the most.

Registration details

.ca approval email
When .CA domains are initially registered, CIRA sends an approval email to the registrant email contact.  The domain registration is not complete until the registrant approves it via this email. While in this “pending-approval” status, the domain will not resolve or otherwise function.  The domain will appear within your account, but you will not be able to fully manage it, especially at the registry level, until approved. The registrant has 7 days to approve the registration, otherwise the registration is terminated.  If the registrant needs this approval email re-sent, please open a support ticket.

Whois details

The registry will no longer display the name, address, phone, fax or email address for Individual registrants.  It will remain as is for Non-Individual.
